Unique Abilities

EVIL EYE Maestro uses a remote-controlled turret firing high-energy laser beams. Once affixed to the floor or wall, Maestro can remote-surveil and provide overwatch in a location through the swivel-mounted camera. When the camera device breaks open to fire a laser beam the core is exposed to damage. Otherwise, the turret is unaffected by bullets and melee. Lastly, Evil Eye can see through smoke.

Background
Adriano Martello, oldest in a family of eight children, attended the Military Academy of Modena. He joined the Carabinieri and later became Explorer Paratrooper in the 1st Paratrooper Regiment Tuscania. After several distinguished tours, earning Silver and Bronze Medals of Military Valor, Martello qualified for Gruppo di Intervento Speciale (Special Intervention Group) and participated in joint operations in Iraq where he was injured by a roadside IED. He engaged in multiple actions against homegrown threats in Italy and eventually became an instructor to train Tier 3 units in the Italian military.

Martello went into private consultation and opened a top-rated operator bootcamp to teach advanced techniques to Tier 3 units and private military companies. The Tuscania eventually convinced Martello to re-enlist to help upgrade one of their Special Forces units, which enabled him to join Rainbow as an Italian representative.

Psychological Report
Specialist Adriano Martello earned the nickname “Maestro” due to his willingness to sacrifice first place to help other soldiers during basic training, and while some soldiers didn’t appreciate the handholding, I think it refined Specialist Martello’s teaching methodology. I did review his school records in regards to fistfights, and it’s clear he was keeping his brothers and sisters out of trouble by fighting for them.

Specialist Martello cares about his fellow soldiers and has an affinity for bringing out the best in others… with a bit of good-natured bluster and perhaps more vulgarity than some of our more reserved operators are used to. He always has a story to tell, however, and it’s an undeniable part of his charm because it comes off without any sort of duplicity.

Specialist Martello’s biggest liability is his own wanderlust. He loves the next challenge—once he’s conquered something, there’s little rooting him down. Even his friendship with Specialist Cowden (Sledge - dating back to operations in Iraq), may not be enough to keep him tied to Rainbow Operations. His ties to Specialist Aria de Luca (AKA: Alibi) may be a different story, however. They worked closely together during Operation Spider Wasp; whatever other history they share remains unknown to me… for now.

Specialist Martello needs a carrot to remain invested, and that means presenting him with challenges that he’s likely to fail at. It’s why I recommend Specialist Martello to step into the boxing ring with Smoke… Specialist James Porter. Specialist Martello grew up in the lower income neighborhoods along Rome’s Lungotevere, where he befriended local Romany children. He boasts about boxing with the Romany, a strong tradition in that culture, and I believe that training him with Porter will encourage positive memories that will link his childhood with Rainbow.

Another option is to arrange for Specialist Mike Baker, aka Thatcher, to take a personal interest in Martello’s development. Martello has nothing short of genuine respect for the operator codenamed Thatcher, enough to leave him tongue-tied around the SAS veteran.
