Solid Snake's biological father. Commonly portrayed as a very old man in a suit underneath a khaki trenchcoat, and wearing an eyepatch on his right eye.
Big Boss is deceased really. However, the US government has managed to preserve his incinerated remains, and with this, they can study his genetic code. And by studying his genetic code, they can find out what genes caused Big Boss to be "the greatest soldier of the 20th century"; these genes are called the "soldier genes".
Big Boss's genetic legacies were going to be octuplets, but 6 were intentionally aborted so that Solid Snake and Liquid Snake would grow to be incredibly strong. However, Solidus was the survivor of the abortion, and is thus the third.
Big Boss fought Solid Snake twice, once in the first Metal Gear game (set in Outer Heaven), and the second Metal Gear game (set in Zanzibar Land).
It is highly possible that Solid Snake is Big Boss's greatest genetic legacy, despite their hatred before BB's death. After all, who else could take out an almost-immortal soldier (Liquid Snake that is)?!
It has been suggested that Big Boss is the main character for Metal Gear Solid 3 : Snake Eater. We won't know until the game is released in November of 2004....
"Whoever wins, the battle does not end. The loser is freed from the battlefield, the winner must remain there, and the survivor must live his life as the warrior until he dies."
-Big Boss, Metal Gear 2 : Solid Snake
"This philosophy is why I don't fight.....to me it means that if I got in a fight and managed to win, there will always be people coming after me to try to kill me. No matter how many times I win, there will ALWAYS be people after me. It's a cruel world..."
