Meet the Squad
Posted by urk at 6/2/2009 2:51 PM PDT
Before you drop in feet first into Covenant occupied New Mombasa, you should get to know the men and woman you’ll be fighting alongside. They aren’t supersoldiers, but they’re the next best thing. To help you get acquainted, we’ve got each trooper's military dossier on hand.  In turn, the Halo 3: ODST Field Guide has also been updated to include this new intelligence and more.

Eddie Buck is a career Marine that has seen more than his fair share of this war. He has had the dubious honor of participating in many of the wars’ most vicious battles; including both the liberation of Harvest and the fall of Reach. That he has survived through it all speaks volumes. Truly, if he was any better he’d be a Spartan.

Full name: MILES, Taylor H.
Blood type: B+
Height: 190cm

Rating: Corporal (Cpl/E4)
Unit: [classified]

Born: Losantiville, Seven Hills, Mars
Gender: M
Citizen: Martian
Age: 33 –(b. 06/03/2519)
Occupation: Road train driver

Dutch’s former life as a road-train driver on Mars did well to prepare him for the arduous tasks of a heavy weapons specialist and driver in the ODSTs. Behind the death’s head rictus, jolly roger, and layer upon layer of black and gray armor is a man of deep spiritual convictions and respect for those he serves alongside.

Romeo sees his true vocation as a ladies’ man. But just because he’s a lover doesn’t mean he can’t be a fighter—and a damned fine one at that. He keeps his gear clean, his suit looking sharp, and his body lean and strong. He may not be a shining example of the UNSC off the battlefield, but on it he is a consummate combatant.

Full name: CRESPO, Michael
Blood type: A-
Height: 184cm
Weight: 85kg

Rating: Private First Class (PFC/E2)
Unit: [classified]
Service number: 51033-15973-MC

Location: Crisium City, Naniwa, Luna

Born: Crisium City, Naniwa, Luna
Gender: M
Citizen: Lunar
Age: 22 –(b. 10/20/2530)
Occupation: Student

Mickey LOVES being an ODST. More than he did being a pilot. More than he did being a crew chief on a Pelican gunship. He is no stranger to battle and has a fair number of notches in his belt, but he is unique amongst his ODST brothers in that he has never seen absolute ruination visited upon a human colony-world by the Covenant.

This Marine was recently transferred from the 26th MEF, part of a Rapid Offensive Picket that suffered near-annihilation at New Jerusalem, Cygnus. Like most ODSTs, his actions speak louder than words.
