The Black Dragon is an organisation that operates for Cobra.
The Black Dragon organisation has existed since the time of the cold war where it has since provided its services to whatever world power that it deemed was most important to its own survival. They once possessed an island headquarters in the South Atlantic though it was thought to had been destroyed by the original G.I. Joe team roughly thirty years ago. The only survivor of that incident became the new Supreme Leader of the Black Dragons who made an impenegrable fortress beneath the ruins of their old base which is far from the eyes of the rest of the world. Under the unbending will of the new Supreme Leader, his organization has quickly risen to become the foremost source of espionage around the globe. Whilst they are operating for others, the true purpose of this elite body is revenge against G.I. Joe. The current Black Dragon Leader will stop at nothing in order to accomplish the destruction of the G.I. Joe team. Since that time, they have joined with Cobra Commander who has given them access to the most advanced weapons as well as tactical data that is needed for them to accomplish their mission.
The Supreme Leader along with his sabotuers have been known to carry non traditional bladed or even custom designed weapons. This is because of the efficiency of silent weapons as well as the fear they instill into their enemies. Some believe that this is because of the "ninja" implication, this is something that the Black Dragon leader resents.
