Commander Karl Falco is one of the main characters and the main antagonist of James Cameron's Avatar: The Game. In the game, he is a lifelong navy officer who has fought with honor and duty without ever being truly rewarded for his efforts. Throughout his distinguished military career on Earth, Falco saw combat in numerous conflicts during the later stages of the 21st century. These were often short, bloody clashes against rogue governments and terrorist factions.
Upon retiring from the service, Falco received several citations for leading his troops into dangerous front line confrontations. As with many commanders, Falco is now employed by the RDA through the corporation's ever-expanding private security force. When Falco won the assignment to Pandora, it was like hitting the jackpot. He is one of the highest ranking security officers stationed on Pandora, second only to Colonel Quaritch. In the RDA command structure, Falco aims to skim whatever he can from a planet teeming with abundance; standing in the way of this, of course, are the Na'vi. Falco embodies “might makes right,” believing a bigger AMP suit grants him moral authority.
