Winter is an Automaton. An Automaton is mainly made of kysteel, psi-chips, and argon memory plates, but it is rumoured that somewhere inside are the remains of the human that volunteered for Automaton status. Winter's name comes from his cold, silent manner with which he adresses inferior ranks to his own, Master Sniper. When released from his stasis chambers in times of war, Winter works his way into a forward position, from where he systematically asassinates the entire chain of command of the enemy forces, using his bionic eyes, rock-steady aim and the deadly venom gun. The venom gun is over 500 years old, twice as old as Winter himself, and is claimed to have never missed. Regarding the high-tech targeting systems, super-propelled splint bullets and aim-assists it employs, this claim is probably true. You can see the Automaton rune R on his shoulder and arms. This rune stands for Ruasonas, Winter's home city and the last civillised outpost before the vast, cold wastes of the Desert. The skulls he stands on are demon skulls, and have been collected by Winter himself. Drawn with a thick pen, then uploaded onto Photoshop 5.0 and coloured.
