All that is known about his childhood is that he was born in Jordan and lived in a small town, near an air force base. He was separated from his family against his will and disappeared for 15 years.
Today's man of the hour is Oryx, a two-speed and two-armour defender hailing from Jordan. His real name is Saif Al Hadid, born on July 3, 1974. He joined Rainbow Six Siege's operator roster in Operation Void Edge alongside Iana.
As a young adult, Oryx was separated from his family and went missing for 15 years. During that time, he struggled for his freedom, as he was moved between different solitary confinement facilities.
He then came back to Jordan only to renew his passport. He went on to master his combat skills in Istanbul, Bangkok, Berlin and Damascus and then he disappeared yet again.
The next time he was spotted was at a location that is also featured as one of Rainbow Six Siege's casual maps. Oryx went to Kaid's Fortress as a recruit but got promoted as the years went on.
Now, Oryx is the unofficial second-in-command and is in charge of maintaining the Fortress during Kaid’s absences and acts as a trusted advisor whenever the two of them are together.
Oryx has a special fondness for poetry and Moroccan cats. He also trekked from Syria to the Atlas Mountains, on foot. He has turned a crippling affliction into overwhelming strength, but just like many subjected to the depths of human cruelty, he struggles to trust others.
