Soon after its inauguration, RAINBOW found itself responding to a series of seemingly unrelated terrorist attacks by the Phoenix Group, a radical eco-terrorist organization. Throughout its investigation, RAINBOW was assisted and advised by John Brightling, chairman of the powerful bio-tech corporation Horizon Inc.
However, RAINBOW eventually discovered that the Phoenix Group is actually a front for Horizon Inc itself. Brightling's company was developing a super-virus, codenamed "Shiva", with the ability to kill every human being on the planet. In order to protect "mother nature," John Brightling's plan was to kill the entire human race, sparing only his chosen few, who would re-emerge and rebuild the planet into a more scientific and environmentally-friendly utopia. To achieve this goal, he was to use the scattered terrorist attacks to create fear of terrorism, which he then exploited in order to secure a security contract for his own private security firm at the Olympic games. His "security personnel" was to unleash the virus at the games, spreading it to all the countries of the world.
RAINBOW succeeded in preventing the release of the virus at the Olympic games, and Brightling and his collaborators retreated to their Horizon Ark facility in the Brazilian jungle, from which they had originally planned to weather out the global holocaust. RAINBOW infiltrated the facility, killing all of Brightling's collaborators and captured Brightling himself.
It is most likely that Domingo Chavez is no longer a member of Rainbow as he becomes part of The Campus
