"Feel like I got scorched that color."
— Svensdottir toughing out a near-plasma burn during the Battle of Sargasso[1]

Svensdottir, nicknamed Daughter, was a UNSC Marine Shock Trooper who served during the Battle of Sargasso in 2546 as a member of Edward Buck's squad, Alpha-Nine.[2]


Main article: Battle of Sargasso

Alpha-Nine was to retrieve an important data chip from a Lethbridge Industrial facility in the town of Belisk while another squad provided their distraction. During the mission briefing, Svensdottir expressed disgust at the fact that the UNSC was not aware of their mission.[3]

Near the city limits, Svensdottir hotwired an abandoned Lethbridge truck and hastily drove the team into the shell-shattered town. She was ejected from the driver's seat after a plasma missile impacted the back of the truck, but shook off the pain in time to help the squad clear the facility's foyer. Though the squad fled the town after retrieving the data chip, Buck quickly ordered them back in once he heard a distress call from Gamma Six's sole survivor. Once back in the main plaza, Svensdottir provided cover against several Banshee fighters as the squad helped retrieve Gamma-Six's fallen troopers.[4]

Following the battle, Svensdottir rolled her eyes at Buck's attempt to explain his insubordination to their Office of Naval Intelligence mission handler, Veronica Dare. She was then dismissed from the room with the rest of Alpha-Nine.[5]

Svensdottir would later perish in the war well before it was over.[6]


  • Given her surname, it is likely that she was of Icelandic descent.
