Anthony "Tony" Perryman, aka Nomad, is a Ghost team leader and support gunner. He is the one making the important decisions. A Major in the US Army, he was trained to leverage the expertise of each member of his squad for success.

Along with fellow Ghosts Holt, Midas and Weaver, Nomad was deployed in Bolivia as part of Operation Kingslayer, a joint operation between CIA, DEA, and JSOC to dismantle the powerful drug cartel Santa Blanca. Working with their CIA handler, Karen Bowman, Nomad and his team worked to dismantle the Cartel with full autonomy, doing what they saw needed to be done on their own terms.

Biography Edit


Born in Boston, Anthony "Tony" Perryman ("Nomad") was a military brat who spent his childhood moving from base to base. At the age of 18, he decided to enlist, eventually earning a bachelors degree and becoming a commissioned officer and became a member of Delta Force before the age of 24.

After spending three tours with the counter-terrorist unit Task Force 88, he was then selected to become a Ghost thanks to his impressive feats. Nomad took part in many top secret operations all over the world, but it was only two years ago that he was promoted to Ghost team leader.

Nomad remains completely calm, even under great pressure. He is the epitome of the strong, silent type, able to repress his emotions and to remain completely objective under every circumstance. Past teammates would joke about checking his pulse during parachute jumps to make sure he was alive.

Pre-operation KingslayerEdit

His unit was caught up in the Mexican Rebellion, and found himself fighting alongside the Ghost operators John Hume and Nick Salvatore.

After being recruited into the Ghosts, he was assigned to a squad with Sage, Joker, and Weaver. During a mission in Donetsk, Sage and Joker were injured and Nomad was put in charge of a new squad which displeased him due to it not being "protocol". One of their missions was to retrieve or destroy a downed UAV in South America, as well as rescue a Research Team and Archaeologists from Militants who were keeping them as hostages.

During his initial briefing, Nomad saw surveillance footage of El Sueño executing the family of a Bolivian police officer. Stating that this footage has haunted him ever since, he made a vow to do everything he could to stop El Sueño.

Operation KingslayerEdit

His team is covertly deployed to Bolivia and meet up with Bowman. They are introduced to Pac Katari, who asks them to rescue Amaru. The team is successful in rescuing the rebel leader and are them tasked to go after the people responsible for his capture and torture, El Yuri and El Polito. Once the two are eliminated, the team continues to systematically dismantle the Cartel, eventually attracting the attention of El Sueño himself.

The drug lord eventually reaches out to the Ghosts and arranges a meeting, though he is nowhere to be found when he arrives. He offers the team positions within his organization, though they refuse.

After further dismantling the Cartel, Nomad is contacted by Pac Katari, who wishes to meet with Ghosts. Though when the team get the the rendezvous point, they find no signs of Katari and instead find the dead body of Amaru. Suspicious, Nomad contacts Bowman to arrange a meeting with the rebel leader, though she mysteriously goes radio silent.

Fallen GhostsEdit

After their mission is over and Santa Blanca has splintered, they were redeployed to Bolivia to rescue the remaining CIA agents, but their helicopter is shot down and they must survive against the mercenary group Los Extranjeros.

They rescue agent Socrates, who in the absence of contact with the US, acts as their handler.

Eventually Nomad, Weaver, Holt and Midas manage to survive and take down the mercenary group's senior officers and its main leader.
