Quote1 He's not a werewolf, okay? He's a weasel! He's harmless... I mean, he's not harmless, he's killed twenty-seven children, but, y'know, we got him to... I think he's agreed to do this. Quote2

The Weasel is an idiotic, animalistic, weasel-like creature that was a member of the Suicide Squad. He was part of the team sent to destroy Project Starfish on the island of Corto Maltese, where he now resides.

Origins

It is unknown how exactly the Weasel came to be, but the weasel-like humanoid went around causing havoc, which included the deaths of twenty-seven children, until he was finally caught and detained in the Belle Reve Correctional Center in Louisiana. Given how stupid he now was, Weasel was easily drafted into Task Force X, better known as the Suicide Squad, by Amanda Waller.[1]

Waller's distraction

In 2021, Weasel was sent on a mission to Corto Maltese to destroy evidence of the U.S. government's involvement in Project Starfish. His team was lead by Colonel Rick Flag, and consisted of Harley Quinn, Savant, and more. Unbeknownst to the team, however, they were merely Waller's distraction for the Maltese Army so that a second strike team could invade without hindrance and complete the mission unobstructed.

Savant saves Weasel

The Squad was flown over to Corto Maltese in a helicopter and dropped into the sea when they were close enough to the island to swim over. Unfortunately, the Weasel was unable to swim and was dropped into the ocean unprepared, where he thrashed around before inhaling much water and passing out. Savant picked up Weasel and dragged him to shore, where he incorrectly assumed he had died. Weasel was left alone as all his teammates, save Harley and Flag who escaped to complete the mission, were horribly slaughtered by the Maltese forces in a brutal ambush.

Weasel awakens in his new home

Several hours later, when the Maltese soldiers were all gone and the Suicide Squad all dead, Weasel's system forced the water from his lungs, waking him up. Unsure of where he was or what had happened, the confused creature stood up and ran away into the Maltese jungle, where he presumably now lives, although he has not been seen since.[1]
