Saif Al Hadid (سيف الحديد in Arabic), codenamed Oryx, is a male defending operator, age 45, from Azraq, Jordan. Very little is known about Saif’s early life. It is believed that he lived with his family unit near an air force base. Reports say he was taken from his family and that he struggled to gain his freedom for over 15 years of solitary confinement in different facilities; for a relatively unknown reason. Upon breaking free he surfaced in Jordan, attained a passport, and left to travel the world. It is thought that he learned wrestling in Istanbul, Muay Thai in Bangkok, tactical diving in Berlin, and precision shooting in Damascus. While it is unknown why he was able to do this, it is generally understood that Oryx was taken in by a paramilitary sponsor. Eventually, Saif ended up working unofficially for the GIGR and closely with fellow operator Kaid as his second in command. He joined up with Team Rainbow in 2020. Oryx is known in-game for his ability to run through soft walls and for being able to charge/knock over opposing operators. He is a 2 Armor, 2 Speed character.
