Ross, better known as ​The Classic Soldier is one of the 9 mercenaries hired by Redmond and Blutarch Mann back in 1930. He is the main tank of the team, wearing the most durable armor and being the toughest even without it.


When Zepheniah Mann passed away, his two sons, Redmond and Blutarch Mann began fighting over the land they persuaded him to buy - the absolutely empty and deserted Badlands. Both brothers hired groups of mercenaries, the first one consisting of such guns for hire as Abraham Lincoln, the future president of the United States. The brothers, however, weren't done. When they were at the last years of their life, they had a professional engineer, Radigan Conagher, to build them a Life-Extender Machine. The Machine successfully extended the user's lives and the war went on. Soon, in 1930, the brothers had to hire a second team of mercs, this time consisting of the Classic Scout, Soldier, Pyro, Demoman, Heavy, Engineer, Medic, Sniper and Spy.

Soldier was the most destructive and powerful mercenary out of the others, and supposedly the most experienced.
