Each and every one of them are wanted men and can be connected to terrorist acts on oil refineries, dams, air bases and various other key locations all across Europe. Their typical attire is rather basic kevlar armor with AK-47s, M16s, standard sidearms and personel grade explosives with no distinctive insignia or symbol of allegiance. None of them are outstanding or exceptional beyond their misplaced loyalty to the Baroness.

If something needs done she will go do it at whatever cost and leave those behind that need and or desire her presence at the time - possibly leaving her alone at inopportune moments, and leaving her group at their opportune time.
Flaw: Socially Flawed
Crazy? Sadistic? Evil? Manipulative? Yes to all of the above. She has a hard time dealing with other people and lacks emotion on many levels that should be natural to most human beings. This makes it very hard to keep up the ruse of 'everyday jane' that she is sometimes forced to wear. When it comes down to it the Baroness is not a very nice lady and would soon as eat your face as give you a hug.
