A few days ago, Ubisoft released the teaser trailer for Alibi, a new Defender coming to Rainbow Six: Siege during Operation Para Bellum and today, Ubisoft has released the teaser trailer for the second Defender, Maestro. Here is a brief description of Adriano Martello, aka "Maestro".
Maestro is a colorful addition to the intel gameplay family. His expertise lies in blocking access to key locations, and his blunt style allows him to see through smoke and mirrors, for which he has no patience. He shines when joined by his long-time G.I.S. teammate, Alibi.
The character of Maestro was inspired by explorers from the Italian counter-terrorism unit, Gruppo di Intervento Speciale (G.I.S.). He is a wanderer known for his brilliant exploration, reconnaissance, and scouting techniques.
His name is Adriano Martello. Oldest in a family of eight children, he grew up in Rome, but attended the Military Academy of Modena at 18. He then joined the Carabinieri and earned a spot as an Explorer Paratrooper in the 1st Paratrooper Regiment known as Tuscania. After several distinguished tours, Martello qualified for Gruppo di Intervento Speciale (G.I.S.) and participated in joint operations in Iraq, earning a facial scar from a roadside IED. He went into private consultation where his courses quickly became a top-rated operator boot camp for teaching advanced techniques to Tier 3 and Tier 2 units, as well as private military companies.
The Tuscania eventually convinced Martello to re-enlist to help upgrade one of their units to a Tier 2 Special Forces classification, and this enabled him to join Rainbow as a representative of the Italian Units.
In the video, Maestro appears to be giggling and laughing and carrying on while playing on his phone. Meanwhile you can hear people being gunned down in the background. The current speculation is that Maestro has a deplorable sentry turret that he can control on his phone like Echo's Yokai Drone.
The full reveal for Operation Para Bellum, including Defenders Alibi and Maestro will happen during the Pro League Finals on May 20th.
