Story: Nothing has been revealed about Jason Phillips prior to his military service. He started out in the Air Force, where he developed a reputation for being very good but also mentally unstable end reckless. He got his callsign from skimming the tops of some trees with the crown of his skull on a jump. When NSC wanted to reform Team 7, Flattop was transferred to the group [5].

On a mission to the Transylvania with the Team 7 at the time, what was supposed to be a biological weapon held by a loosing faction in the Balkan was actually a nanotech alloy which was essentially a non-carbon based life form. In reality, Team 7 was supposed to retrieve or destroy the alloy before it fell into the hands of the Vampire Nation. The mission didn't go as planned, and Team 7 was exposed to the alloy which bound itself to their skin and acted like a living armor. Realizing something was wrong, Miles Craven ordered the supporting troops to kill Dane and his team, but Mother-One who had herself been exposed to the alloy before the team helped taking out the troops and save Team 7 [1].

After the Balkan mission, Dane and his team was approached by Armand Waering, who took them back to the States and tried to help them use their new golden armor [2]. As the symbiote had been developed by Waering industries [5], and Waering himself was connected to the Night Tribe and had his own agenda, the team was shortly after sent out on a mission to prevent the release of a viral agent by the Night Tribe. The mission succeeded in the sense that the virus was stopped, but Flattop and Crossbones were killed, and Grail and Dozer were changed [3,4].

Skills & abilities: Flattop was a highly skilled soldier, specialized in flying.
Equipment: For a while Flattop carried a golden symbiote on his skin that gave him some degree of invulnerability.
