Whereas Ubisoft didn’t point out it yesterday through the large reveal of Rainbow Six Siege‘s subsequent season Operation Deep Freeze, the brand new operator Tubarão is a trans man.
The reveal is included in Tubarão’s profile on the official website (noticed by Twitter consumer Dawn), the place we be taught that he transitioned earlier than coming into choice coaching to hitch the DAE (Destacamento de Ações Especiais, the Tier One particular forces of the Portuguese Navy).
We additionally learn from his psychological report penned by Doc himself (reporting Blackbeard’s phrases) that Tubarão is extraordinarily resilient and that by being trans “he needed to struggle twice as exhausting for his spot.”
Born in Ponta Delgada, Portugal, Isaac Nunes Oliveira (Tubarão’s full title) can also be praised for his empathy, which we noticed in motion in his animated trailer.
Nunes shares plenty of expertise and pursuits with Specialist Craig “Blackbeard” Jenson, who he educated with years in the past in one in every of their models’ many joint workouts. I’ve by no means heard two grown males chuckle a lot. I suppose you may say related persons are led to related careers. After I requested Jenson for his opinion on Nunes’ recruitment, his reply shocked me: “Each man’s completely different. Tubs is trans, so he needed to struggle twice as exhausting for his spot. You may’t break him. You simply should let him do his factor.”
Nunes’ resilience is important, however what I discover most vital is that regardless of the scenario, he has as a lot religion in his empathy as within the expertise that make him a high-performing specialist. That’s what makes him Wolfguard.
Tubarão is a defender and he fights with both an MPX SMG or an AR-15.50 assault rifle as main weapons and a P226 MK 25 handgun as secondary.
He can use Nitro Cells and Proximity alarms as devices, whereas his distinctive potential is the Zoto Canister that he invented himself, containing a mixture of liquid nitrogen and oxygen able to slowing down enemies and pausing enemy devices.
He would be the star of Operation Deep Freeze, the following season of Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege when it launches on November 28 following the at present ongoing Operation Heavy Mettle.
The sport is at present accessible on PC, PS4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Collection X|S.
