Political and military information


UNSC Marine Corps




This unidentified Marine was a member of the UNSC Marine Corps who fought during the Human-Covenant War.


Sometime during the war, she fought under the command of Sergeant "Ghost". She was close to him, and greatly admired his leadership skills. However, she was saddened by Ghost's demeanor -- he was cold, did not display emotion, and even appeared to lack humanity.

After heavy combat on a planet, Ghost's entire platoon was wiped out by the Covenant. The unnamed Marine was mortally wounded. Knowing she was close to death, she asked Ghost to promise her to "...be human." Soon, she became the last fatality in Ghost's squad. Ghost was greatly saddened by her death.

Her last words to Ghost appear to have motivated his actions three years later, during the Battle of Algolis. Ghost was tasked with destroying navigation data and a prototypical powered exoskeleton as per the Cole Protocol. He disobeyed orders, using the armor to hold Covenant forces back while his men evacuated the area. He activated the armor's self-destruct function by speaking the activation code: "Be human." The resulting explosion killed Ghost and the surrounding Covenant forces. His last thoughts were of the promise he made to the dying Marine.[2]


  • The Marine was voiced by Luci Christian, who also voiced Kelly-087 in The Package.[3]
  • It is likely that the Marine suffered from a shrapnel injury due to the fact that no plasma scorching is visible on her armor.




  1. ^ A marksman at the Battle of Algolis used a BR55HB Service Rifle. As this weapon was introduced in 2548, the battle must have taken place during or after this year. This Marine was killed three years prior to the Battle of Algolis, placing her death between 2545 and 2549.
