Adam Shields is a character featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Lockdown. He appears in the mission Operation Ricochet on consoles and University on PC. He is the acting Minister of Defense for the United Kingdom.


Adam Shields is the acting Minister of Defense for the United Kingdom. On June 10, 2009, Shields was one of the many government officials that were conducting a special session at Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, Scotland. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss ways to conduct counterterrorism in the European Union as well as efforts to stop illegal weapon smuggling.

During the session, however, Parliament was attacked by the Global Liberation Front and Adam Shields was one of the many individuals taken hostage. Before Rainbow could arrive to rescue the hostages, Adam and US Deputy Director of Homeland Security George Burdell were removed from Parliament and relocated to a building at Scotland University. Domingo Chavez successfully infiltrated the facility and was able to rescue Shields and Burdell.


  • While Shields and Burdell appear on both console and PC, they are not directly named in the PC version of the game.
  • In the PC version of the game, Shields and Burdell were taken hostage by the Revolutionary Brotherhood terrorist organization instead of the GLF.
