Originally a cult in India, Kobra had a prophecy that one day someone would lead them to greatness. Finding this someone as one of a set of twins, they selected one at random and took him to be raised by them. This baby, named Jeffrey Burr by his parents, grew to be a formidable warrior and a criminal mastermind. As he took control of the organisation, he was awarded the title "Naga Naga".
Under Burr, Kobra began using cutting-edge science and terrorist tactics to fulfil itís ultimate goal of bringing about the Kali Yuga - the Age of Chaos, in which the imperfect world will be swept away by a divinely-inspired, better version.
Kobra's members are religious fanatics that will fight to the death, and will commit suicide rather than be captured. As a result the organisation has been able to maintain a veil of secrecy for decades - possibly centuries.
