Iroquois Pliskin


The alias Solid Snake used when he encountered Raiden during his 2009 infiltration of Big Shell. His alleged rank is lieutenant junior grade. Raiden assumed he was a survivor of SEAL Team 10, though Snake maintained his silence when asked about his affiliation.

In Algonquin, the language of the native inhabitants of Manhattan, the word "Iroquois" refers to a venomous snake. It is also the name of an eastern tribe of Native Americans with over a thousand years of history, who operated under a federated system known as the Iroquois Federation which heavily influenced the United States at the time of its inception. In their language, the word "Manhattan" means "island of many hills".
