Equipment:

Eco-Warrior Suit (s): this suit seals Daniel off from the outside world. Made from recycled action figures, it offers him +5 protection from toxins in the environment - mainly by preventing them from entering his system. It also has these 'bonus' feature:

* Helmet (s): in addition to providing Daniel +2 protection against head-based physical attacks, this head gear also has a holographic display inside, that lets him see what the chemical analyzer in his sweeper robot says - and even lets him control it by voice command!

* Life Support (s): since his suit is airtight, Daniel has to have some sort of air supply. This comes in the form of an oxygen rebreather, which recycles Daniel's air for a full day at a time (24 hours of breathable air before it needs refreshed, or intensity 2).

the Joe-Com (i): this is a new device given to all Joes since the group's reactivation. This high-tech wristband functions as an audio/video transceiver with various other goodies built in to help a soldier on the go, and is described in greater detail in its own equipment entry.

Laser Pistol (a): his sole armament, this weapon allows Daniel to fight off Cobras in a conventional manner while neutralizing their combat gunk. He can fire this directed energy weapon to inflict his Agility +5 energy damage in a single shot.

Sweeper Robot (i): the main weapon he uses in the fight against Cobra's weaponized Sludge-slingers, this device may be controlled by remote, allowing it to reach oddball places that Daniel can't. It is armed with a chemical analyzer that works with intensity 10 skill.

It is primarily designed to identify Cobra's Sludge, and then a) sucks the material inside itself, and b) neutralizes it, also with intensity 10 ability. It will then spread a Sludge-neutralizing gel onto the surface it recently drained, to limit long-term environmental effects.

The Sweeper can only move at intensity 1 ground speeds - about 5 miles per hour. However, it can traverse many different kinds of terrain thanks to its tank-like treads, and in a pinch Daniel can even hop on top of the thing to avoid a deep dipping into Cobra gunk.

Hindrances:

(none)

Skills:

Boxing (s): a talent he picked up in basic training, this skill showcases Daniel's ability to defend himself while disarmed. In such instances, he may divide his pre-card play action score between two unarmed attacks, the last of which occurs as a contingent action.

Chemistry (i): Daniel is primarily a chemist by trade, and has applied his knowledge to work against Cobra's chemical weaponry. He is allowed a reduced difficulty in actions of this stripe, particularly handy when attempting to undo the damage Cobra's toxic weapons have caused.

Demolitions (a): a talent that showcases both of his other 'trade' abilities, this skill describes Daniel's expertise in explosives and other booby traps. Whether he's attempting to set or disarm an explosive or other trap, Daniel may do so at a reduced difficulty.

Engineering (i): though his main 'gig' is in chemistry, Daniel is also a proven combat engineer. He's highly skilled at building things for his fellow troops - often while under fire - and should receive a +1 reduced difficulty while planning or executing a build.

Marksmanship (a): a vital part of his military training, this skill describes Daniel's ability to fire most standard firearms with ease. Whenever he wields a standard, semi-automatic or fully automatic rifle or pistol, Daniel may do so at a reduced difficulty.

Military / United States (w): Daniel has mastered his many talents thanks to the United States military, which makes this skill an 'origin' of sorts for all his other abilities. He knows the SOP like the back of his hand, and can readily function in a military unit when necessary.

Calling:

Soldier: while his partner Ozone may do his duty due to a need to protect the environment from harm, Daniel does it because it's his job. Not that he's indifferent to the suffering of nature and all that, but he'd fight Cobra in any way the Joes asked him to, really.

Costume:

Daniel's GI Joe uniform is actually his toxin-resistant suit! It is primarily yellow in color, with green accessories here and there, and is further accented with brown gloves and boots, a neon green belt, and a yellow and green helmet with a blue-tinted visor.

Personality:

Daniel enjoys his job, and he's particularly good at it. He's not an environmentalist like Ozone, per se, but he knows that his job is very important. He's more than ready to do it, too, even when most regular Joes fear to tread in the toxic turf he has to wade through daily...

Story:

Not too much is known about the background of the man the GI Joe team calls Clean Sweep. The man has clearly been in the military for awhile, as he's a very good combat engineer, not to mention a chemist by trade. Perhaps it is his mastery of both skills that got him his place on the Joe team.

He's got to be tough and tenacious, or else he'd have never gotten through the entrance exam. He's also very bright, and takes to his job as a series of challenges to be beat. He doesn't rush at them whole hog or anything like that, but the man likes to analyze a problem and beat it down.

Once he made it onto the team, Daniel was given a position on their elite Eco-Warriors team, a very small group dedicated to opposing Cobra's efforts to introduce the world to weaponized Sludge. This chemical weapon would be a disaster in the hands of ordinary terrorists.

So Daniel was more than happy to help the Joes clean up the messes Cobra makes with this Sludge, not to mention working at preventing their further production of the stuff. The problem with that though is that it's made from ordinary pollutants - which are in ready supply.

Combine that with a terrible Sludge cheerleader known as Cesspool, and you've got a team with its hands full. Of course, Daniel and company eventually prevailed against Cesspool and his Sludge-wielding Vipers, and were cycled back into the regular Joe forces.

Though the Joes were disbanded for a time, they were reassembled when Cobra activities spiraled out of control. Daniel was happy to assist the Joes during the second Cobra Island Civil War, not to mention World War III, during which Cobra was finally defeated once and for all.

Mind you, several leaders of that group have so far escaped justice, so Daniel and his fellow Joes are busy hunting them down to this very day...!
