Red Poppy was a female opium dealer who operated out of North Korea during the 1950s. Following the cease fire at the end of the Korean War, she continued to supply guerrilla forces in South Korea with opium in order to influence the South Koreans into supporting the Northern cause. The poppy fields were discovered by Combat Casey and Penny Pennington while on a routine patrol.
Red Poppy and her minions captured Combat and Penny and forced them to assist in smuggling her opium supplies past an American checkpoint in a hay wagon. Combat and Penny followed along until they were taken to the guerrilla base, and then lit the hay wagon on fire and went racing through their opium supplies setting them ablaze.
In the aftermath, Red Poppy tried to convince Combat and Penny to join the communist cause in North Korea, but was taken prisoner instead. Her subsequent fate is unknown.
Red Poppy carried a pistol.
