One of the various leaders of the secret committee of Generals known as "the Jugglers". The G.I. Joe team was one of the many units that fell under the often-corrupt group's responsibility. Crowther resented the top secret elite teams of the military, believing they were allowed too much freedom to carry out their missions.
During a closed meeting of the committee, Crowther was astounded by Storm Shadow's sudden entrance, crashing through the ceiling above their chambers. He had evaded security to force the Jugglers into giving Snake-Eyes a dangerous mission to break him out of his despair over Scarlett's comatose state. Having stolen the files on the highly classified and covered up "George Strawhacker case," Storm Shadow threatened to expose the fact that Strawhacker was allowed to rot in a Borovian prision for years. Strawhacker had been the fiancee of Snake-Eyes' twin sister before her death years before. But after Snake-Eyes left on the mission to rescue George, General Crowther captured Storm Shadow and Stalker, explaining that he learned the government didn't want Strawhacker rescued, since he had been leaking false information to the Soviets and his rescue would cast doubt on his traitorous behavior. Crowther sent in the former Cobra mercenary Major Bludd to kill Snake-Eyes so that no one would rescue George. After Snake-Eyes freed Strawhacker, the spy was killed by Borovian rebel leader, Metz. The former Soviet nation's new leader's were present when Bludd revealed his mission. Crowther continued to hound Snake-Eyes, Storm Shadow and Stalker until Hawk met with the General and told him that he should lay off the three Joes since the word of Borovia's head of state held more weight than Crowther's. Crowther was enraged by the implied threat, but knew Hawk was right. Crowther's current status is unknown.
