Let's get something straight: I don't take orders from you. I'm not fighting this war for you. I fight for the Forgotten.
- Umagon, to McNeil, before embarking on a mission
TS Umagon Icons

Umagon is a mutant commando who appears in both the GDI and Nod campaigns of Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun.


The Forgotten are a people of honor!
- Umagon

She is one of the fiercest warriors of the Forgotten and a favorite underling of Tratos. Umagon is an excellent hand-to-hand fighter and an elite sniper. She was subject to extreme Tiberium exposure as a child, which turned her into a Mutant.

Character Development

Little is known about Umagon prior to her encounter with GDI forces in the Second Tiberium War. She penetrated a large Scrin aircraft captured by the Brotherhood of Nod and was encountered by GDI commanders Michael McNeil and Chandra, when they were exploring the interior of the strange ship after taking it from the Nod. Eventually, she struck a deal with the Global Defense Initiative, trading General Vega's location for saving Tratos, the Forgotten's leader.

She would eventually serve as a sort of ambassador of the Forgotten to GDI, aiding commander McNeil with advice, providing tactical information or even pinpointing the location of a Nod prototype fighter manufacturing plant. Unfortunately, she was captured by the Brotherhood following the last assignment, and taken to Kane's headquarters in Cairo, where she'd be subject to the Divination process.

The process would not have been completed though, as McNeil rescued Umagon and Tratos administered an experimental Tiberium mutation antidote to her. However, this would prove to be an error, as the antidote caused her to mutate horribly and forced Tratos to confine her to a straitjacket in a padded cell. She is assumed to have died of the mutations shortly before the Firestorm Crisis began.

Umagon appears to have originally been intended as a romantic interest for McNeil, as they continue to grow closer to each other, not just as soldiers but as man and woman. Interestingly enough, Anton Slavik displayed a rather uncharacteristic consideration for Umagon as well, as he squarely reprimanded his second-in-command, Oxanna Kristos, for calling her a 'sickening specimen', and repeatedly stopped the disgruntled Oxanna from having Umagon killed.[1]

In-game unit

Umagon is a campaign-exclusive unit and cannot be trained. She is assigned to the player in selected GDI missions. Being a critical unit, her demise will fail the mission.

Equipped with a long-range silenced sniper rifle, she is able to kill a basic infantry in full health in two shots. However, her rifle is ineffective against cyborgs and vehicles, and useless against buildings and airborne targets. Like all mutants, Umagon is able to heal herself when traversing a Tiberium field.

In certain Nod missions where the Forgotten is encountered as a hostile faction, generic Mutant Snipers can be encountered. They use the same model and have the same combat capability as Umagon.
