— Pierre referring to Snake's offer to join Philanthropy's cause
Pierre grew up under the tutelage of his grandparents and parents who, the latter became famous for helping end World War II alongside the Cobra Unit, which Pierre resented for most of his life, despite his appreciation for his inherited talents with a sniper rifle. He spent most of his early years operating as a mercenary working for various PMCs, and during this time he became a gaming enthusiast, as shown his attachment to his Nintendo DS.
In 2007, Pierre was contacted by Bishop, a member of Philanthropy who offered him a job to work with Solid Snake to a mission to Georgia, to which Pierre accepted. Upon getting to the rendezvous point, realized he arrived early and passed the time playing his Nintendo DS, but was caught unaware by Snake, who took an immediate disliking to him, thinking Pierre was unfit for the mission.
Pierre, in hopes to get on the legendary mercenary's good side offered to find the contact for Snake while he looked for Disgrace due to Pierre knowing the city better than Snake, to which Pierre found the contact staring at a wall in a hypnotic state. Pierre later met up with Snake and Disgrace and settled down at camp, where Pierre asked Snake what he thought of Disgrace, to which Snake told him her history of accidents on the field.
Later a mysterious being knocked out the group's communications with a loud screech and forced them to stay awake through the night in case of an attack. The following morning they made a trek to where Senator Bishop was being held by ArmsTech, and their local contact was shot in the head when he seemed to start having a seizure. Snake ordered Pierre and Disgrace to provide cover in case he needed it upon getting the Senator out, but he was stopped by a Metal Gear and approaching rebels, which forced the trio to meet up inside and rescue the Senator themselves.
Once inside the compound, Pierre experienced bloodshed for the first time close up, which caused him to drop his carefree attitude and hardened him to the point that he offered to sacrifice himself so Snake and Disgrace could get the Senator out in the firefight, and showed off his prowess with a sniper rifle, taking out six rebels and ArmsTech soldiers single handed.
After Snake took out one of the rebel's Metal Gears, Pierre accompanied Snake and the Senator to the "decimated zone."
