Operative [Redacted] (Also known as RememberTheBlitz, RTB, or [R]) is a high-level Cerberus defector who frequents CDN. Very little is know about RTB due to his heavy use of redaction VIs. He is known to have been a member of the O7 program, and to have fought on Torfan with Pharos before the pair joined Cerberus. It is possible he was involved in Pharos' recruitment. During his time with Cerberus, he was involved in a variety of operations, including espionage, paramilitary actions, and experimental cleanup.

In early 2186, Operative [Redacted] faked his own death and defected from Cerberus after coming to the realization that the organization did not have humanity's best interests at heart. He reappeared shortly after the Reapers attacked Earth. Unlike many other defectors, he chose not to rejoin the Alliance, and began planning independent operations against his former employers.

After the war ended, he set up [Redacted] Security Consultants on Noveria, while privately beginning to build a new covert, pro-human organization.

Criminal Record

"Well, the only crime I'm wanted for in Citadel Space is Treason. I think I'm also wanted for questioning about my relationship with Cerberus. But I haven't used that name since I left the Alliance, so every time I enter Citadel Space, I have a clean slate. Of course, various individuals who may have allegedly been former aliases of mine might have been accused of some of the following crimes:

  • Murder (83 counts split between 5 different aliases. One identity is wanted for 58 counts. I may have blown up a frigate.)
  • Attempted Murder (5 counts; 4 of them I eventually killed under a different name)
  • Terrorism
  • Conspiracy to commit Murder
  • Conspiracy to commit Terrorism
  • Theft
  • Destruction of private property
  • Possession of unlicensed weapons
  • Fraud
  • Computer Fraud
  • Extortion
  • Bribing C-SEC officials
  • Attempting to bribe C-SEC officials
  • Possession of illegal substances (poisons)
  • Breaking and Entering
  • Breaking and Exiting
  • Theft of classified information
  • Invasion of personal space
  • Trespassing
  • Arson

In Hegemony space, I'm wanted for attempted genocide. I promise, the claims are totally ludicrous.

There are also bounties around for the capture of the individual responsible for various assassinations I've performed. I've even collected a few of them.
