Hieu Dinh is a SPARTAN-IV supersoldier serving under Commander Laurette Agryna.[3]

Biography[edit]

Human-Covenant War[edit]

Hieu Dinh started his career as a field analyst for Section Three of the Office of Naval Intelligence. During the Human-Covenant War, ONI tasked him with capturing and re-purposing Covenant technology.[1] Early in his career, Dinh and his fireteam were assigned a mission that had them breach and raid a fledgling Yanme'e hive inside a derelict Forerunner structure. The raid was ultimately a disaster; Dinh escaped with severe wounds, but the rest of his team perished.[2]

Spartan-IV service[edit]

Dinh was left scarred by this experience in the Yanme'e hive, though his close call with death left him resilient in similarly-perilous scenarios. As such, he was recruited into the SPARTAN-IV program following the war, working alongside Laurette Agryna as they both earned experience as Spartans.[2][4] During the Created conflict, Dinh fought against the Banished in several close-quarters engagements, including boarding actions. He was later deployed alongside Spartan Sigrid Eklund to a Banished shipbreaking yard on Camber during the Created conflict.[1]

Equipment[edit]

Dinh employs a custom ensemble of equipment, shaped by his experiences against the Banished and surviving for long periods alone in the field in the wake of the rise of the Created. He wears an Artaius helmet taken from a small run of prototypes intended for a new classification of powered exoskeleton.[1]
