Thomas Ziegler is an Ed Islandian special forces operative. He is notable for his role in discovering valuable intelligence on Snoss military programs as well as undergoing surgical reconstruction into a full-body cyborg.
Mission to Snowzerland
During the 2010 Osterrean War, Ziegler was inserted into Snowzerland with the identity of a captured Snoss sergeant named Anton Kriege. At this time, he uncovered numerous classified programs including the Snoss nuclear weapon and TIE Fighter programs.
After severe injuries sustained in Snowzerland, Ziegler was placed into a medically-induced coma for over two years. During this time, he underwent one of the most extreme cybernetic reconstructions in history. Ziegler's entire body was reconstructed in a long series of experimental surgeries, to the point where the only remaining original body parts of his were his head and spinal column. Ziegler's cyborg body was composed of artificial muscle, organ, bone, and blood which gave him superpenguin abilities and strength.
Following his cybernetic reconstruction, Ziegler became fascinated with the Ninjas and Japaland. He began training with a high-frequency blade as they were much closer to a Ninja's katana than contemporary Keysabers.
A short period after ZITHIA's supposed disappearance in 2015, Ed Islandian intelligence discovered strange signals surrounding the site of the sunken USAS Marathon. Ziegler was sent to investigate as they were determined to be of a similar makeup to the ZITHIA mainframe's background signals. The Ed Islandian military had kept a close eye on ZITHIA since its foundation; an artificial intelligence capable of controlling the minds of penguins was considered a very serious threat.
Under the guise of a UAN environmental inspection team, Ziegler was inserted into the oil cleanup facility in order to discover its true purpose. Sneaking through the facility, he discovered that ZITHIA was being reconstructed on the sea floor as a massive submersible fortress with electronic warfare and communication surveillance capabilities.
- Ziegler is known in internal Ed Islandian documents as the "Cyborg Ninja," a title that he proudly wears.
