Real Name: Unrevealed
Search for 'Oriole' on Amazon

None known. Oriole wore an armored suit of unknown origin which allowed him to fly and carried three pronged blades on the wrists which could be fired from the suit.

As part of the super-villain group known as Air Force (consisting of members Cardinal, Tanager, Killer Shrike, Sparrow and in later missions Oriole) and led by a behind the scenes organization known as Air Command, Oriole was hired by Gloria Hancock and with the rest of Air Force was sent on a mission of revenge against The Taylor Foundation's board of directors for turning down Hancock to use her airport facilities in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Not realizing that Dwayne Taylor was indeed Night Thrasher, Air Force boarded The Taylor Foundation's Learjet and was soon defeated by Night Thrasher.

Having a change of heart at this point, Cardinal & Air Force decided to help out refugee camps in Africa by delivering much needed supplies to them.

It was in Africa that Air Force was attacked by a mind controlled group of super-humans known as The Soliders of Misfortune. Under the mind control of a terrorist organization known as The Undertow, The Soldier's of Misfortune were instructed to strike at Air Force. Despite their best efforts Air Force was quickly and soundly defeated by The Soliders of Misfortune. It was during this battle that Oriole, and another member of Air Force, Tanager, were both killed.
