Soren Philippe Masson was the Primary leader of the ALA; he was also an elite sniper of the French Army.

Syphon Filter The Omega StrainEdit

"Let's see how many rabbits the Hawk can kill, eh?"
-Masson to his fellow soldiers in the Carthage Mall
Soren Philippe Masson was an elite French sniper known by the nickname "The Hawk." He studied with France's Armed Forces and earned a reputation as their best shooter, but authorities uncovered links between him and the Anarchiste Libertaire Armee based in areas such as his home, the French-owned island of Martinique. The Armed Forces subsequently discharged Masson.

Masson, a man against the presence of foreign corporations on Martinique for their refusal to share assets with its citizens, had difficulties in convincing the ALA to focus on his struggle. He in turn established his own branch on Martinique called the Rising Hand, and cooperated with other rebels in dispersed regions of the world. Despite his implication in a drugs-for-guns trade, Masson escaped custody and hired fellow sniper Jean Fornier to be the second-in-command of his new organization. Andre Proust would also serve as one of Masson's top leaders.

Carthage Health Authority director Dr. Broussard took bribes from Masson to allow ALA soldiers into the United States, and Masson agreed to buy the Omega Strain virus from him. Broussard backed out of the deal, and Masson organized a terrorist attack on Carthage to recapture the virus. He murdered Broussard and ordered Fournier to release the virus into the water system. IPCA agents led by Imani Grey stopped the outbreak, and terminated Fournier after killing Proust.

Infuriated, Masson took over a mall where his forces planned a second release of the Omega Strain. The Agency squad was again involved and aided a failed police operation to stop the ALA. The operatives succeeded in identifying and killing Masson.

Strategy Edit

Masson is armed with an assault rifle and magically spawns on the mall's 3rd level, which, interestingly enough, you cannot access. Should you have grenades, flood his little alcove with Sarin nerve gas to kill him fast. Otherwise, you can use the AUG 300 with an infrared sight to snipe his head. Watch out because there are infinite snipers spawning on the mall's 2nd level when he appears.

Personality and traits Edit

"Innocents die for just causes every day my friend. I cannot change that now."
-Masson to Fournier
Masson seems to be ruthless, killing whoever stands in his way and intending to take Carthage with him in deploying the bombs within the mall. He is also cunning, with a scoped weapon that cuts through dense smoke, allowing him to nail SWAT officers who attempt to storm the shopping complex.
