The G.U.N. Colonel was a colonel of G.U.N. The colonel was responsible for the raid of the Space Colony ARK, which resulted in the deaths or imprisonment of the many researchers aboard and Shadow the Hedgehog being sealed in stasis for fifty years.
The ARK Incident
G.U.N.'s colonel was responsible for the raid of Space Colony ARK to try and capture Gerald Robotnik's Project: Shadow for G.U.N.'s own purposes as a weapon fifty years ago. The raid on the ARK resulted in the deaths of many, including Gerald's granddaughter, Maria, who had managed to evacuate Shadow from the ARK. Enraged by this, the colonel had Gerald brought back to Mobius and ordered him at gun-point to build another Shadow and then revealed the fate of Maria to Gerald. His men then reported in that the original Shadow hadn't escaped them, and had him brought to Gerald to finish his work. But they soon realized that Gerald's designs were too great for them to understand and make he wasn't trying to "pull a fast one", so they had him executed and Shadow sealed away for the next fifty years until Doctor Eggman released him.

- While the colonel was shown to have five fingers on his hand, it was likely an artistic error as he couldn't be human due to his blue hair and would therefore be an Overlander.
