Character Description: Snipe

Snipe is a gluttonous, childish slob who showers himself in opulence while his subjects slave away in abject poverty. Not a particularly bright person (he speaks of himself in the third person on occasion) nor a very competent pilot, Snipe makes up for his failings with brute strength and a single-minded dedication to smashing things. Snipe is Ravess' brother. As one of the Talon leaders, Snipe is given control of Terra Nimbus.

Snipe's weapon is a crystal-powered energy mace. Embedded in the iron ball are ten Firebolt Crystals, and the ball itself is attached to the handle by a retractable chain. Snipe's mace can fire deadly balls of energy in addition to its general capacity for smashing things.

Snipe pilots a Talon Heli-Blade Elite, a motorcycle-sized version of a Heliscooter. Snipe's Elite model is equipped with extra armor plating and several large blades attached to the nose. It also comes with a pair of rapid-fire, crystal-powered blasters, though Snipe doesn't make use of them. In one episode, he had a specialized battle airship built, which was fitted with an excessive amount of weapons, making it nigh-impossible to attack. However, the ship crashed in the Wastelands to due a combination of sabotage by the Storm Hawks and Snipe's own incompetence.

When Ravess is given control of Cyclonia and abuses her power at Snipe's expense, he overthrows her. Snipe quickly does the same at Repton's expense, leading to a second exchange of power. Soon all three groups end up locked in a cage, for which Ravess is banished.

Later, Snipe, in command of a Cyclonian war fleet, attempts to assassinate the Storm Hawks as well as the Raptors. He ultimately fails and Cyclonis, who by this point has lost all patience with him, exiles Snipe to the Wastelands.
