Major Snake was an intergalactic rock star, and Lobo's favorite.
Snake once screamed so loud he burned his uvula. He had trouble talking ever since, only being able to speak softly and mostly unintelligible. Major Snake's medication made him bloat and vomit often.
For some reason, he wound up in Oblivion, where he became cellmate of Slaz. The two eventually became homosexual lovers. Slaz' brother Sniff had hired Lobo to bust Snake out, but he had the bad luck of doing it on Snake's birthday. Only after agreeing to take Major Snake along did Slaz cooperate. On the way out, Lobo's hog was too heavily loaded, and he killed Snake in order to get away from the guards.
