It’s “Adam Fenix” not “Soldier Adam,” You can get Aaron Griffin through gameplay; “Big Money” medal. You have him listed twice w/different spellings of his last name.

The griffin i got was of facebook, search “get griffin” on facebook and like the page (need to have an account that over 18, if not make a new on)

@Teri: though the character is actually called Adam Fenix, the in-game multiplayer skin is called Soldier Adam. Just think of Commando Dom and Mechanic Baird for similarity.
