Twin brother of Tomax
(the brother without the scar), a personal assistant to Cobra Commander
and head of the Crimson Guard
. Xamot and Tomax are believed to have been born into a mafia on either Corsica
. A family feud
led the brothers to leave their home and join the French Foreign Legion
. As mercenaries, they fought in the bush wars of Africa
and South America
, and worked as assassins for the CIA
The brothers started an international bank, financing illegal arms shipments and a number of coups. Impressed by their skill in handling shipments to Destro's arms research facility, Cobra Commander offered them a place in the organization.
The brothers share a psychic bond which allows them to communicate telepathically. It also causes one to feel pain when the other is hurt, and often results in the brothers finishing each other's sentences...
