Tedra Grant (service number 95984-78393-TG)[1] is a SPARTAN-IV supersoldier who served with Fireteam Majestic on the UNSC Infinity during the hostilities on the Forerunner shield world Requiem in early 2558.[2]

Biography[edit]

Early life[edit]

Grant was born November 4, 2533 on Arcadia, which had been first invaded by the Covenant only two years earlier. She joined the UNSC Navy at a young age and was later accepted into the SPARTAN-IV Program after its inception. Her athletic and combat skills would put her in a role of testing early versions of MJOLNIR GEN2 before being given an active role as a Spartan. Shortly after joining the ranks of the Spartans, she was assigned to Fireteam Majestic.[1]

Sometime before February 8, 2558, Grant and the rest of Fireteam Majestic, minus Gabriel Thorne, were deployed to Rio de Janeiro.

Second Battle of Requiem[edit]

Main article: Second Battle of Requiem

In 2558 Fireteam Majestic was assigned to the UNSC Infinity.[3] After Infinity arrived at Requiem, Fireteams Crimson and Majestic were sent north of the UNSC's area of operations on Requiem in order to shut down Forerunner power generators. Upon reaching their location, both Crimson and Majestic had their long-range communications jammed by Forerunner jamming devices. After deactivating the jammers, their mission continued. Initiated by Palmer, the mission turned into a competition for the fireteams as to who could complete their mission objectives first. Majestic temporarily took the lead at first, but were eventually beaten.[4]

Sometime later, Fireteam Majestic was being engaged by Promethean Crawlers; they were eventually victorious. Madsen started to complain about their ability to "pop up" anywhere, when a Promethean Knight teleported into the area and shot him in the shoulder. Hoya then broke cover to fight the Knight and was injured, needing to be brought back aboard Infinity.. [5] Later, during Crimson and Majestic's pursuit of Jul 'Mdama, Grant figured out that Covenant forces had been able to escape using portals, allowing Crimson to pursue 'Mdama through a portal.[6]

Majestic then was deployed to Galileo Base to retrieve the "Didact's Gift" from the area after Crimson had defended it from a Covenant assault force. Though attacked by Banshees and Phantoms, Thorne managed to hijack a Banshee and destroy a Phantom, giving Majestic an opening to leave.[7]

When Thorne went missing, the rest of Majestic set out to find him. They eventually found Thorne in the nick of time, with DeMarco shooting Gek 'Lhar right before the Elite was about to execute him.[8]

A short while later, Majestic was attacked by Covenant forces.[9] DeMarco radioed in for reinforcements and Crimson and Fireteam Kodiak were sent to destroy Covenant artiilery firing on Majestic. When the Pelican arrived for evac, Majestic was met by a life-size hologram of Captain Thomas Lasky, he asked them to rescue Dr. Halsey from Jul 'Mdama. When they arrived at Halsey's location Grant, Hoya, and Madsen took a position above the entrance and waited for Thorne to signal to attack. When he did Grant yelled to the Elites to distract them, Majestic quickly opened fire multiple Elites. Grant and the rest of Majestic showed up to help Thorne just as Promethean knights translocated into the area and engaged them. Jul 'Mdama managed to escape with Halsey, just as Thorne and Palmer closed in on him. Palmer questioned why Majestic was there, DeMarco said Captain Lasky wanted them to rescue Halsey.[10]

Sometime later, along with Commander Palmer, Majestic was ordered to deactivate one of the two translocation artifacts still on Requiem, while Crimson deactivated the other. Before they left they witnessed the departure of the Covenant remnant fleet. When Requiem began to move towards the local star Palmer hurried them toward the artifact.[11] Majestic faced significant Covenant resistance in deactivating their device. While making their way to the artifact Grant tossed a grenade that killed at least one Elite. Shortly after Crimson deactivated their artifact, Majestic eliminated the last of the Elites defending the third artifact and deactivated it. While evacuating Grant co-piloted the Pelican with Commander Palmer, pointing out Crimson's Pelican that was just ahead of them, they arrived aboard Infinity at the same time as Crimson, allowing Infinity to escape just in time.[12]

Freighter rescue[edit]

On March 11, six days after DeMarco's death on Ealen IV, Infinty arrived in the Artesia-702 system having received a distress signal from the damaged freighter Pilgrims Pride. When an ambush was sprung, Fireteam Majestic was deployed along Fireteams Colossus and Fenrir to repel attack and prevent the freighter from self-destructing on the Infinity. Leading the fireteams, Thorne ordered teams Colossus and Fenrir to secure the ship while Majestic made their way to the core. As the Spartans advance through the freighter, they encountered automated defense turrets but Madsen was able to swiftly destroy them with his rifle. With the enemy going into retreat, the freighter was tugged out into space, where Grant ejected the ship's core before it exploded. The Spartans survived the detonation and requested pickup.[13]

Equipment[edit]

Grant wears the Pathfinder variant of the MJOLNIR GEN2 armor, and carries an M395 DMR.

Production notes[edit]

Grant is voiced by Ellie Newlands.
