Height: 208cm
Weight: 116kg
Hair: Brown
Eye: Brown
Homeworld: Jericho VII
Birth: March 15, 2529
Jameson Locke currently serves as the leader of Fireteam Osiris. Intelligent and quick to solve complicated political and tactical situations, Locke was recruited into the Spartan-IV program in 2556 to lead dangerous and sensitive missions in the former Outer Colonies.

Often tasked with dangerous missions beyond the reach of UNSC support, Locke has garnered an impressive string of successes in the field.

Notable Operations

Edward Buck[edit]

Spartan Buck (92458-37017-EB)
Buck, Edward
Rank: Spartan
Height: 206cm
Weight: 113kg
Hair: Brown
Eye: Blue
Homeworld: Draco III
Birth: August 22, 2510
Edward Buck has long displayed strong leadership skills and perseverance despite participating in some of the Covenant War's most vicious and desperate battles. Having turned down and intentionally sabotaged multiple promotions in order to remain a small-unit leader, Buck maintains contacts with former subordinates who are now highly placed in both colonial and UEG organizations.

As a former ODST, Buck has considerable combat experience, but his most valuable to Fireteam Osiris is as a joint-forces liaison and advisor. Given the sensitive nature of Osiris' missions his current assignment is engineered to to groom him for a greater role within the Spartan branch.

Notable Operations
As of August 2558, Spartan Buck completed 188 military operations [49 full campaigns] in his combined ODST and Spartan career. Since Buck's recruitment into the Spartan branch in 2524 he led Fireteam Alpha-Nine, and later served as temporary Spartan Commander aboard the UNSC Meriwether Lewis, until his transfer to Infinity and Fireteam Osiris.

Holly Tanaka[edit]

Spartan Tanaka (93312-28001-HT)
Tanaka, Holly
Rank: Spartan
Height: 201cm
Weight: 108kg
Hair: Brown
Eye: Brown
Homeworld: Minab
Birth: July 9, 2530
Quiet, self-reliant, and unfazeable, Holly Tanaka has no close friends, and rarely fraternizes with her fellow Spartans. She is a founding member of Fireteam Osiris together with Spartan Locke, though even he does not know her too well. This reticence to connect with others is a result of her traumatic experience as a survivor of Minab's glassing in 2550.

Tanaka serves as the engineering and electronics expert of Fireteam Osiris. Her keen mind and broad experience allow her to discern the function and operation of human, Covenant, and Forerunner devices and traps without the assistance of Smart AI analysts.

Notable Operations
As of August 2558, Spartan Tanaka completed 23 military operations [14 full campaigns] in her combined Army Corps of Engineers and Spartan career. Her first deployment as a Spartan was with Fireteam Domino during Infinity's mission to Requiem in February 2558.

Olympia Vale[edit]

Spartan Vale (44482-91201-OV)
Vale, Olympia
Rank: Spartan
Height: 206cm
Weight: 102kg
Hair: Brown
Eye: Brown
Homeworld: Luyten
Birth: January 10, 2536
Olympia Vale serves as the field anthropologist and Sangheili cultural expert of Fireteam Osiris. Curious and composed, Vale is fascinated by the contradictions and complexities of Sangheili culture, and finds their psychology and rituals a truly challenging puzzle that can be unlocked through dedication and study.

An unusually gifted Sangheili linguist, Vale was ONI Special Liaison to the emerging Swords of Sanghelios coalition let by the Arbiter before her recruitment into the Spartan branch. However, Vale was selected for augmentation and training as much for her demonstrated talent for combat as for her fluency in Sangheili language and knowledge of their society.

Notable Operations
As of August 2558, Olympia Vale has completed 7 military operations [2 full campaigns]. Her prior service as an ONI Special Liaison encompassed an number of operations in noncombatant roles. Of particular note is her participation and exemplary performance in inter-service War Games competitions before her recruitment into Spartan branch.

Blue Team dossiers[edit]


John-117 (Spartan-117)
Rank: Master Chief Petty Officer
Height: 218cm
Weight: 130kg
Hair: Brown
Eye: Blue
Homeworld: Eridanus II
Birth: March 7, 2511
John-117 is currently serving as leader on Spartan Blue Team. Throughout his extensive military career, John-117 had displayed characteristics and behaviours that are nothing short of extraordinary. Generally a man of few words, John-117 prefers action to discourse, and is often described as impassive, stoic, and focused.

Though proficient in all aspects of infantry tactics as well as the basics of aerospace combat, John-117's most notable skill is his ability to effectively and efficiently direct operational detachments ranging in size from fireteam to battalions. It has been noted that UNSC personnel at all levels defer to John-117's experience and charisma, giving him authority that far outstrips his notional rank.

Notable Operations
As of August 2558, John-117 has completed 209 military operations [136 full campaigns]; more than any other UNSC personnel on record. Though John-117 has commanded nearly every other Spartan-II at one time or another, the lion's share of his career has been spent as fireteam leader of Blue Team. His actions during the Covenant War have earned John-117 every UNSC combat award, as well as several dozen civilian honors. His complete record is only viewable with explicit UNSC High Command authority.


Kelly-087 (Spartan-087)
Shaddock, Kelly
Rank: Petty Officer First Class
Height: 211cm
Weight: 112kg
Hair: Brown
Eye: Blue
Homeworld: Imber
Birth: September 21, 2510
Though mission oriented and competitive, several Spartan-II trainers suspected Kelly-087 harbored no overt loyalty to the UNSC, and was only prevented from leaving the program due to strong bonds with her companions in Blue Team,

Even among the super-human SPARTAN-II personnel, Kelly-087 was notable for having the quickest of reflexes, and an almost preternatural ability to synchronize with Mjolnir mobility systems. Even without power armor, Kelly-087 is capable of running at speeds in excess of 50kph for extended periods. This impressive ability earned Kelly-087 the nickname of "Rabbit" among her fellow Spartans.

Notable Operations
As of August 2558, Kelly-087 has completed 201 military operations [124 full campaigns]; only a handful of surviving Spartan-II operatives have more experience. Kelly-087 claims to be ignorant of awards she is entitled to, and has shown little interest in the biographies and records of non-Spartans.


Linda-058 (Spartan-058)
Pravdin, Linda
Rank: Petty Officer First Class
Height: 213cm
Weight: 110kg
Hair: Red
Eye: Green
Homeworld: Verent
Birth: March 19, 2511
Linda-058 is stoic and oftentimes eerily calm during combat, a demeanor perceived as adversarial even by other Spartans. Her discourse is generally terse and task-focused outside of combat, which has left little room for cross-team integration and generally kept her moored exclusively to Blue Team.

Linda-058's visual acuity and deft skill with marksman weapons is unparalleled, and she's considered the UNSC's most talented sniper. Her skills have proven invaluable, particularly when operating within her marksman role, where she's often pitted against high-priority targets at extreme ranges or tasked with providing overwatch support for teammates.

Notable Operations
As of August 2558, Linda-058 has completed 189 military operations [174 full campaigns], most of which were during the Covenant war. Though she, like all other Spartan-II's, is heavily decorated, the only awards she is known to value are related to her victories in various post-War shooting competitions.


Frederic-104 (Spartan-104)
Ellsworth, Frederic
Rank: Lieutenant Junior Grade
Height: 216cm
Weight: 132kg
Hair: Black
Eye: Blue-green
Homeworld: Ballast
Birth: April 3, 2511
FHighly intelligent, alert and ibjecitve-focused during operations, Fredeeric-104 always appears solemn and stoic when dealing with UNSC personnel. His stablilizing influence on troop morale is of interest to ONI psychologists.

While there is little foubt as to Frederic-104's prowess in combat his true genius lies in strategy, information management, and the forging of disparate combat elements into a cohesive warfighting force, even when presented with only the barets information on troop dispensation When operating as a member of Blue Team, Frederic-104 defers to John-117 for tactical direction and focuses on close- to mid-range combat.

Notable Operations
As of August 2558, Frederic=104 has completed 197 military operations [139 full campaigns] during the course of the Insurrection and the Covenant War. His post-War experience is equally impressive, though most were unrecorded black ops. Frederic-104 is highly decorated, but refrains from wearing awards.
