|“||Seemingly emerging from obscurity over the last few years, Jackal has become a force to be feared. Slowly but surely, his mercenary company has expanded its reach, directly attacking competing rival paramilitary groups, crushing them into the ground, only to recruit the strongest survivors and brutally execute those that Jackal deems to weak to be worth his time. Rumors surrounding his origins are few and far between. Those who know, also know well enough to keep their mouths firmly closed. Judging by the types of weaponry now at his company's disposal, it appears that he has acquired some new, well connected backers, with very deep pockets.||„|

|~ Owethu "Jackal" Mabuza in the season four cinematic.|
Owethu Mabuza, also known as the Jackal, is an antagonist in the 2020 video game Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and also appears as a playable operative in the above mentioned game and Call of Duty: Warzone. He was released for the season four content for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, and acts as a secondary antagonist in the fourth season for Black Ops storyline.
Born in South Africa, Mabuza early years remained obscured until he became an infamous warlord under the nickname "Jackal". Owethu became a ruthless mercenary who would destroy the competition, only recruiting the strong and executing those who deemed as weak. Gaining numerous backers and buyers due to his infamy, Jackal would later be introduced to the Perseus Spy Network, and later became one of their agents in South Africa in assisting Vikhor "Stitch" Kuzmin de-orbit the enemy satellites in Verdansk.

Owethu Mabuza was born on April 18th, 1955 in Mbombela, South Africa, but not much is known about Mabuza or his past. By the 1980s, Mabuza would emerge from obscurity, and gained the nickname the "Jackal" due to his brutal tendencies. Owethu became the head of his own mercenary company, and expanded its reach by destroying rival paramilitary groups in Africa. Jackal seems to have a social darwinist beliefs, as when he destroyed paramilitary groups, he would recruit those who were strong and brutally execute those he deemed weak or not worth his time.
Due to his infamy in Africa, Jackal became connected to numerous backers who supplied his company with better weaponry. According to his in-game bio, the Jackal's origins are ambiguous, and those who know him don't speak of his past, presumably out of fear or respect. During this time, the Jackal's connections would go as far to the Perseus Spy Network, a rogue Soviet group under the command of "Perseus", who contacted the warlord. It's unknown why the Jackal joined the spy network, but it's assumed for more connections to get better weapons and equipment for his company, or simply expand his power in Africa.
