Requiem Campaign[edit]

In 2558, during the attack on the UNSC Infinity, Lancer was ordered to reinforce Fireteam Avalanche and Fireteam Kodiak at Fore Armory 12-7.[4] After securing the armory, Lancer was sent to Translight Deck 19-7 to reinforce Fireteam Crimson.[5] Later, after Crimson secured "Apex," Lancer was sent in to guard the area.[6]

While protecting the Apex, Lancer discovered a Covenant base in the nearby hills. Commander Sarah Palmer ordered Crimson to assist Lancer in destroying the base.[7] Crimson regrouped with Lancer and together the two fireteams destroyed the shield wall protecting the generator. Lancer and Crimson made their way through the canyon and reached the entrance to the Covenant base. While the two fireteams were attacking the base, Jared Miller picked up a mysterious SOS signal, originating from a nearby cave. Lancer and Crimson made their way into the cave and discovered the captured Fireteam Switchback. Shortly thereafter, the Crimson and Switchback were evacuated.[1]

Zeta Halo[edit]

On December 12, 2559, Firetem Lancer was onboard UNSC Infinity when it was ambushed by Banished forces upon arrival at Installation 07. As the Infinity fell to the Banished assault, Captain Thomas Lasky was evacuated from the ship, and Spartan Hudson Griffin ordered all Spartans to evacuate.[8] At some point during the battle, Lancer's leader, Spartan Hedge, was captured by the Banished. He was taken to the House of Reckoning in February 2560, after the Banished's assault on the wreckage of UNSC Mortal Reverie. Hedge, along with Gunnery Sergeant Elena Bobrov, Lance Corporal Singh, and a Sangheili they nicknamed "Doc", were forced to participate in the Trials of Atriox, a ritual devised by War Chief Escharum in which UNSC survivors were to defend a large room from multiple waves of Banished troops. If they survived, they would be fed food and water, only to go through the trial again on the next day.[9] Given that Escharum told John-117 that no one had survived the Trials of Atriox,[10] Hedge was likely killed by Banished.[3]
