What's the matter? You look like you've just seen a ghost.
~ Rorke to Ajax in No Man's Land.
Look at what you did, you're good. You would have been a hell of a Ghost. But that's not gonna happen. There ain't gonna be any Ghosts. We're gonna destroy them together.
~ Rorke to Logan in the ending.
You're right, Elias, I'm not a Ghost... I'm the man that hunts them, and sends them back to the other side!
~ Rorke just before he kills Elias.

Captain Gabriel T. Rorke is the main antagonist of the 2013 video game Call of Duty: Ghosts, and also appears as one of the main antagonists of the Call of Duty: Mobile comics.

Prior to the ODIN strikes, he was the leader of the Ghosts until he and his team were sent to assassinate General Diego Almagro in Caracas and he was left behind due to an unfortunate event. 12 years later, he is the commander of the Federation Armed Forces stationed in the United States while seeking vengeance on his former comrades for abandoning him.

He is also the arch-nemesis of Logan, Hesh and Elias Walker, the latter whom Rorke personally killed for reluctantly leaving him to save the rest of the Ghost team.

He was voiced by Kevin Gage, who also played Waingro in Heat and the titular character in the 2005 film Chaos.



I am Gabriel Rorke. I have been trained by your Government to be a weapon. Trained to kill and destroy. All in the name of Liberty and Justice. Even surrender my very life in service to your country. But I am not one of you. The "Just" have turned their backs and become deaf to your cries. Who, then will show them justice? Who will show you the Liberty they have promised? The weapon they have created will be their undoing. But do not fear this. Do not fear me. It is only natural. Like the collapse of Rome, your cities will crumble and there will be great sorrow. But from the ashes of this diseased metropolis, a rebirth will occur. It will be paid for in blood and steel. Liberty must be restored. I am Gabriel Rorke, and I am here to show you the true meaning of justice.
~ Rorke in his voice recording from Rorke Files

Gabriel T. Rorke was born in 1974 and once a proud soldier of the United States Armed Forces who fought off hundreds of Middle Eastern soldiers during the Tel Aviv War in an alternate 21st century of the year 2005. Afterwards, Rorke was cleared for duty to lead a new counter stealth unit called Task Force: STALKER, unofficially known as the Ghosts.

Assassinating General Almagro

Rorke during Operation: Return to Sender, or as the mission "Legends Never Die", as the Captain of the Ghosts.

In 2015, Rorke convinced the U.S. government to send in the Ghosts to assassinate General Almagro who had been ordering the execution or incarceration of all American citizens in South America and soon the Ghosts were deployed to Caracas, Venezuela to kill Almagro. Upon landing, Rorke and his team had continued to push forward, despite over half of the U.S. forces being decimated, he managed to get Almagro and Elias killed him with a pistol, but he was forced to drop Rorke due to the fact that he couldn't pull him up and dropped him into the flooded streets of Caracas.

After the operation, the Federation found Rorke and sent him to an unknown jungle prison somewhere in South America. The Federation used an ancient torture technique from an Amazon tribe to break him that involving feeding poisonous food to break his body and slowly used unknown methods to break his mind and soul until he was completely brainwashed and pledged full support to the Federation. In one of his files, he expressed his anti-American views and hostility towards the United States when a photo of him during his early career in the U.S. Marine Corps is shown.

Involvement with the Federation

12 years later, Rorke can be seen leading the Federation forces during their invasion of the United States as one of their commanding officers and he has captured, tortured and killed Alex V. "Ajax" Johnson, one of his former teammates from 12 years ago. After the Ghosts return to their Santa Monica base, Rorke is leading a massive invasion of the city and has been known as the Ghost killer for his expert skills in killing Ghost soldiers who are intensely well trained, armed and feared.

On June 15, 2027, during Federation Day, a national holiday in Latin America, Keegan, Hesh, and Logan snuck into Caracas and planned to capture their target: Victor H. Ramos, one of Rorke's associates, in order to obtain information on his location since he travels to different locations every 12 hours to avoid capture and soon Rorke was found and captured at the floating industrial complex in the Gulf of Mexico, only to be rescued hours later by Federation forces stationed in the Yucatan Peninsula and fled the scene. At one point, Federation troops capture Elias, Hesh, Merrick and Logan at their safe house in Las Vegas and after intense interrogation, Rorke pulls out his pistol and shoots Elias in the head as the other three could only watch helplessly.

Later on in the campaign, the "LOKI" Space Station made by the Federation as their own version to ODIN had been preparing to launch a strike on the remaining U.S. major cities as the remnant U.S. military forces launched a massive counter-attack in Chile and the U.S. Air Force astronauts took over LOKI. With the station under their control, they began to use it to destroy the Federation Third Fleet and the ground forces as a major turning point in the war.

During the offensive, Hesh and Logan board the supply train that Rorke is on, intent on killing him to avenge their father's death. When they are overpowered by Rorke, Hesh orders Merrick to attack the train with them still on it by saying the word "Checkmate". This causes the train to crash into the water. While Hesh restrains Rorke, Logan manages to shoot him in the chest as the train floods. Hesh and Logan manage to make it to the surface, leaving Rorke in the water to drown, and report to Merrick that Rorke is dead.

Kidnapping Logan Walker

However, as Hesh and Logan wait for the rescue, Rorke appears in front of Logan, alive. He kicks Logan in the face, and as he attempts to stab Rorke, Rorke easily overpowers him and deflects the knife away and breaks his arm. Rorke then kicks Hesh away and knock him out. He shows his anger at Logan for ruining his plans, before showing his admiration for Logan's determination and spirit and vows to continue his mission to kill the Ghosts. He plans to take him to the Federation and tries to brainwash him like Rorke to kill the Ghosts. Logan was then captured and dragged away by Rorke as Hesh was heavily injured and unable to do anything to stop him. In the post-credits scene, Logan was seen held inside a hole within the Amazon, almost certainly about to be tortured the same way Rorke was all those years ago.

Call of Duty: Mobile comics

Rorke appeared in the comics storyline of Call of Duty: Mobile as one of its main antagonists. While it is currently unconfirmed about whether or not he is brainwashed or if he has any connections to the Federation or the Ghosts, he is confirmed to be one of the leaders of the criminal/terrorist syndicate known as The Five Knights, along with corporate leader Hidora Kai, anarchist Mace, cyberterrorist Raul Menendez and a currently unknown fifth leader.

According to former member Vladimir Makarov, the five of them started working together to achieve their goals despite them being completely different, with Rorke's being that he and his mercenaries see war as a means for profit.

When Rorke set up an ambush on the UAC to locate General Shepherd, his attempt failed as Simon "Ghost" Riley" arrived and battled Templar and Dame. He escapes on a helicopter to a nearby ship with Kai, and to travels to Panama to meet with Rott. Later on in the comics, Rorke and his group are attacked by Templar and the Dark Covenant, and he is killed by Dame after asking Templar will he kill him.


You're right, Elias, I'm not a Ghost... I'm the man that hunts them, and sends them back to the other side!
~ Rorke before killing Elias in the mission "Sin City"

Rorke, as seen alive in the mission "The Ghost Killer", as well as in the ending of Call of Duty: Ghosts. Here, after he breaks Logan's arm, he intends to brainwash him into turning against the Ghosts, like how the Federation did the same to him.

As the former Captain and member of the Ghosts and a major ally to the Federation, Rorke is a cold, odious and vindictive man who often played with his former teammates for moments before killing them for good. Rorke is a highly trained professional soldier and uses that as his advantage to strike fear into the enemies of the Federation for being a former Ghost. He appears to have lost all his loyalty towards the U.S., possibly showing a hint of anti-Americanism within him. He is also extremely psychopathic and bitter as he recalls the events of his betrayal and abandonment in Caracas, particularly when speaking with Elias. Although Rorke was largely seen as a sympathetic character by the Ghosts, any sympathy anyone had for him was lost after he shot Elias in the head, causing his sons to vow to kill him.


Call of Duty: Ghosts

Call of Duty: Mobile


  • Rorke is the second main antagonist in the Call of Duty series to be an American, though his fall was merely due to brainwashing caused by the Federation.
  • Because Rorke survived at the end of the game (somehow), he is widely believed by fans to appear in a sequel to Ghosts as either the main antagonist or the secondary.
  • He also appears in the Call of Duty novel, Devil's Breath.
  • A lot of fans hate that Rorke was able to survive the final mission, which shouldn't have been humanly possible.
  • Rorke is the first villain in the Call of Duty series to be brainwashed, followed by Jacob Hendricks.
    • Although Hendricks received punishment while Rorke did not.
