Dawkins was an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper stationed on the UNSC Pillar of Autumn during the Battle of Reach, and the Battle of Installation 04 during the space battle. They were a member of First Lieutenant Melissa McKay's B Company. They were killed in action when the Covenant intercepted and boarded the ship.
Escape from Reach
Battle over Installation 04
On September 19, after the Pillar of Autumn left slipspace, the Covenant intercepted and boarded the ship, starting the Battle over Installation 04. The ship's ODST contingent were assigned to defend the ship's experimental powerplant from the invaders, Dawkins alongside Al-Thani, and Suzuki were killed during the skirmishes on the ship, being the only members of B Company to die onboard the ship during the battle. When the platoon's medic Valdez was looking over McKay's injuries, he tried to use humor to get her mind off Dawkins and the others' deaths.
