Going by the alias "Mr. Anspaugh", his real identity is unknown. What is known is that he is of Western-Asian ancestry and short with black hair. He also sports a thick beard. Like most Brotherhood members, Anspaugh espouses Tiberium as the future of humanity.
Anspaugh appeared on GDI's radar after W3N contacted InOps. During a research assignment, Reporter Annabella Wu was approached by the recruiter because Nod liked her reporting style. Although taking no attempts to disguise his appearance, Anspaugh made sure no records were made of the contact. This caused some concern since the Altanta Yellow Zone was supposed to be under GDI control.
