In December 1973, at a secret US military hospital in Texas, a 41-year-old
American of Austrian descent, Professor Gerhard Stein volunteered for experimental
surgery following his own extensive research into human cloning. Professor
Stein was a brilliant man. Nine perfect clone embryos were created, and placed
in different parts of the world to grow up under a cloak of secrecy. `Tiger`
Ninestein is one of the nine `Steins`.
After a long and distinguished military career Ninestein officially
retired as CIC UN High Command in the year 2013 at the age of 40. With the
impending threat of the first alien attack he was persuaded to mastermind
the creation of the TERRAHAWKS Earth Defence Squadron (2014), and subsequently
to become its first commander (2018).
character and temperament:
Tiger Ninestein is a superb military tactician and a tough, relentless
fighter. Inter-planetary warfare calls for lightening responses and nerves
of plasteelium. Ninestein can be ruthless in battle and compassionate in victory.
He is the battle-hardeed general with the lives of millions resting on his
reflexes and depending on his judgement. He is the ultimate man... and the
ultimate boy. `TIM` is trying hard to keep him in tip-top shape.

Thanks to Hiro`s computer genius, Dr Ninestein can now `plug into`
his personal DATA DUMP every 24 hours. He stores his total knowledge and experience
so that in the event of his destruction a perfect replica could be operational
within two hours of his arrival at the TERRAHAWKS base.
