Meeting Ethan Hunt
In 1996, Roderick Quinn, a member of the Syndicats disguised as Phelps, teamed up with Krieger and Phelp's wife, Claire Phelps, to kill three members of the IMF (Jack Harmon, Hannah Williams and Sarah Davies) and frame Phelps' protege, Ethan Hunt. It was where Krieger unoffically joined the Syndicate.
Ethan recruited Luther Stickell and Krieger and they infiltrated CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, steal the real list, and fleed to London.
It was revealed that Krieger had killed the other IMF members on the Prague job, but remains unsure whether Claire was involved.
