Biography[edit]

Battle of Mombasa[edit]

Main article: Battle of Mombasa

During the Battle of Mombasa, Fones belonged to "Second Squad", serving aboard the UNSC In Amber Clad. He was deployed to the Battle of Mombasa on October 2552, under the command of Gunnery Sergeant Marcus Stacker.[1]

Fones and his squad were aboard a D77-TC Pelican dropship when it was shot down by a Type-47A Scarab walker on approach to an area in New Mombasa, Kenya. After their Pelican made a rough landing outside of an abandoned beachside hotel in Old Mombasa, Fones reported that O'Brien was killed on impact. He, along with his squad quickly moved out to get better cover, and headed toward Hotel Zanzibar. During a skirmish with camouflaged Sangheili, a plasma grenade had landed on Fones's helmet. Using quick reflexes, the ODST was able to remove his headgear and hurl it toward the camouflaged Sangheili's position on higher ground. There, Sergeant Stacker and his team saw the charging soldier, only after it had held Walpole as a prisoner. Butkus opened fire with an overcharged plasma pistol at the Sangheili, as Stacker shot the Sangheili in the head with his BR55 battle rifle.[1]

Production notes[edit]

  • Fones, though unnamed throughout the cinematic, is named after Jeremy Fones, one of the animators in Bungie and worked on Another Day at the Beach.[2]
  • In the original Halo 2 cinematic by Bungie, Fones and Stacker shared the same facial model, but Stacker was distinguished by the blood on his left cheek. In the remastered cinematic by Blur Studio, Fones' appearance was given a unique facial model which featured a blonde mohawk.
  • In the original Halo 2 cinematic by Bungie, it was Fones who said, "Cook the bastard" to Butkus, and shot the Sangheili with his battle rifle. In the remastered cinematic by Blur Studio, the role was given to Stacker.
