Spartan Operations


Jason Kidman, callsign Shadow Two,[1][2][Note 1] is a Spartan-IV of Fireteam Shadow in the United Nations Space Command.[3][4]


Battle of Requiem[edit]

Main article: Battle of Requiem

On July 21, 2557, Fireteam Shadow was attached to the UNSC Infinity when the ship was pulled into the shield world Requiem. Following the ship's crash inside the shield world, Fireteam Shadow, presumably including Stone, was deployed to the flight deck to investigate movements detected outside the ship. The Spartans could not see what was causing the reports of movement outside the ship, but reported that they were experiencing technical difficulties.[5] Shortly after, the Infinity was attacked by the combined forces of Jul 'Mdama's Covenant and Ur-Didact's Prometheans.[6]

Requiem Campaign[edit]

Main article: Requiem Campaign

On February 14, 2558, Kidman—operating under the callsign Shadow Four—and the rest of Fireteam Shadow were dispatched to the Requiem shield world to neutralize a Covenant base established two days earlier. After Stone eliminated patrols around the site, Kidman's TQ-8 seeker drones were to create a breach allowing Stone and Horatio Fry to break into the base to shut down production.[3] However, in the midst of the operation, Jared Miller reassigned the team on a priority operation to destroy the Covenant Zanar-pattern light cruiser Panom's Canticle, which was deploying forces to "The Refuge".[4] Being too far from their Pelican, Shadow stole a Phantom from the Summit to get there.[3]

While Fireteam Crimson protected the science team from the Covenant ground forces at "The Refuge", Shadow took advantage of the stolen Phantom to rush into the Panom's Canticle hangar before the crew activated the shields. Shadow made rapid progress through the ship, but encountered heavy resistance as they approached the core. As Fry, Kovan, and Kidman cleared out the last Covenant soldiers in the hallway leading to the main reactor room, Stone had already infiltrated there, armed with her active camouflage. While Stone fought the shipmaster and his Sangheili, Nina Kovan fired her Selene's Lance at the ship's power core, causing the reactor to overload. Kidman located a nearby drop pod bay, and led his squad mates to their means of egress before the cruiser's impending explosion. With the power core overloaded, the cruiser was destroyed, bringing an end to the Covenant's attack. Kidman and the rest of Shadow escaped onboard aGloto'kef-pattern assault carapace.[3][7]

Battle for Zeta Halo[edit]

Main article: Battle for Zeta Halo

On December 12, 2559, Fireteam Shadow was onboard the UNSC Infinity when it was ambushed by Banished forces upon arrival at Installation 07.[8] As the Infinity fell to the Banished assault, Captain Lasky ordered the crew to abandon ship. Jason Kidman and Fry remained with Fireteam Taurus to repel Banished boarders from a hangar bay.[9] Once Lasky was safely evacuated, Spartan Hudson Griffin ordered all Spartans to evacuate.[9][10] The fates of Kidman and Fry following the space battle became unknown to Stone and Kovan.[1]


During the Requiem Campaign, Kidman wore Mjolnir GEN2 OPERATOR-class Mjolnir armor.[3][2]
