"Where you see half a crew, Isabel, I see family, courage. And a thousand heroes who swore to fight their way through hell before they'd ever... EVER turn their backs and run. And where you see one old ship, I see home. And that is always worth fighting for!"
— Captain Cutter to Isabel and the bridge crew of the Spirit of Fire.[4]

Captain James "Jim" Gregory Cutter (service number 01730-58392-JC)[3] is a senior officer in the UNSC Navy who served during the Insurrection and the early years of the Human-Covenant War.[5] He captains the UNSC Spirit of Fire, a refitted Phoenix-class support vessel that was attached to Vice Admiral Preston Cole's Third Fleet in 2531.[2][6] Cutter had a wife, Mary, with whom he had a daughter on Reach;[7] he also had a mistress on Tribute, with whom he had a son, Daniel Clayton.[8] Cutter and the Spirit of Fire went missing in 2531 due to circumstances that required the sacrifice of the ship's Shaw-Fujikawa translight engine in order to deny a fleet of Forerunner Sojourner-class dreadnoughts to the Covenant. Cutter and the rest of the crew entered cryostasis and slept for years, awakening in 2559 only after being mysteriously pulled through a portal to the extragalactic Installation 00. There Cutter led the crew of the Spirit of Fire against the Banished, a power-hungry faction of ex-Covenant that were occupying it.
