I saw the trailer.

Adam Baldwin is DEFINITELY voicing Dutch. I'd recognize his voice anywhere.

Should I change it to say something like "Adam Baldwin is voicing Dutch."?

If your certain then go for it i guess. It wouldn't hurt, and if worse comes to worse someone will just edit it. --Fjboy93 19:51, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Career service vitae[edit]

who keeps deleting the career service vitae and why. its perfectly good information taken from the bungie website itself and someone keeps deleting it. do i have to drop a reference or something? cuz if i do then tell me. Ace99 02:34, 18 August 2009 Yeah someone keeps deleting my edit in facts about how Dutch's wife is named Gretchen nad she used to fight with him as a fellow ODST... I got this directly from bungie.

Firefly References in Quotes[edit]

In the Firefly episode Safe Jayne says "Dear diary: Today I was pompous and my sister was crazy. Today we were kidnapped by hill folk, never to be seen again. It was the best day ever." while reading Simon's diary. Does anyone think Dutch's "Dear Diary" rant is a reference to this? Also, when he does his long "they told us to hurt you, but they weren't specific how" seems to be a reference to when he is interrogating the mole in the first episode. 98.247.26.100 20:50, October 27, 2009 (UTC)

¿Is Dutch the same ODST from Babysitter?[edit]

He sounds a lot awfully like him, he looks like him and shares his name ¿but do we have any confirmation that this Dutch from Legends is the same from ODST? (190.12.153.187 13:54, November 7, 2009 (UTC))

I don't really see a resemblence. The voice sounds a little like his but The Babysitter Dutch has blond and ODST Dutch has brown hair and I doubt he dyed it.SPARTAN-177 14:02, November 7, 2009 (UTC)

I would think its the same guy. Tall, knocked down the Chieftan as he did so in ODST, and I checked the Helljumper comics, his hair is blondish in it. I'd imagine Baby sitter takes place years before 2552/ODST. So by the time we play as him his hair has dulled out from age.--Halofighter92 16:23, November 7, 2009 (UTC)

That, and the character character sketch identifies him as "Dutch".

And on top of that, Legends take "a few" artistic freedoms. 80.222.44.24 15:53, March 13, 2010 (UTC)

Artistic freedom means that they can draw them how they like, not name people how they like.-- Forerunner 11:52, July 8, 2010 (UTC)
I have to say that the Dutch from the Babysitter and Halo Legends in general should just be counted non canon because of how much it doesn't seem to be like Halo, for example a marine who was going to be a Spartan but didn't become one because he didn't want to be one.RvBrocks1 06:12, July 8, 2010 (UTC)
It's canon, and its canonicity won't change simply because you hate anime.-- Forerunner 11:52, July 8, 2010 (UTC)
I didn't say I hated anime. I said the show strays from the the storyline of Halo. You can't say that a marine has that kind of choice and that female spartan Daisy she's 5"4" and she went through surgery to become a spartan and that's nothing like the "Birth of a Spartan" trailer shows, if she went through that much surgery if she's even a real spartan how'd she die from those needles from a needler their armor's stronger than that. And the fuel rod guns are used like there plasma rifles.RvBrocks1 00:57, July 12, 2010 (UTC)

Summarising History Section[edit]

Could someone please summarise the whole section, keeping it concise and up to the point. If I were to do it, I would do it negligently as I don't have any copy of Halo: Helljumpers. This also applies to all characters, stories from Halo: Evolutions and all future materials.- 5əb'7aŋk(7alk) 14:11, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

I agree. It doesn't need to have a detailed description of how they killed each single enemy and such. I've been meaning to summarize these for a while, but it takes a lot of work to rewrite entire sections. And yeah, this is the problem with most ODST or otherwise new character articles. Also, what is it with people writing biographies in the present tense?--Jugus (Talk | Contribs) 14:26, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

Height[edit]

I've decided to add in Template:Convert to Halopedia because of an apparent lack of ability in conversion by my peers. Just replace his height in the height field with {{Convert|190|cm|ft}} (convert 190cm to feet). It'll take a while for me to finnish off the templates :p.

190 centimetres (6.2 ft)

Dutch- Sparten lazer

Micky- Rocket lancher

Rookie-SMG

Dare-Pistol

Romeo-Snipa

Number 7[edit]

Just spotted this, the latter part of his service number add up to 7. Dutch's service number is 21175-12121-TM. 80.222.44.24 16:00, March 13, 2010 (UTC)

Height?[edit]

The Encyclopedia states that Dutch is 184cm tall and the visual guide states that he is 190cm tall. Since the Visual Guide is newer and considering how effed up the Encyclopedia was, I say we use the Visual Guide's height.--ハローファン (H1234-NET) 00:52, 27 August 2011 (EDT)

Blood type[edit]

Okay, I'm going to admit I didn't look very hard, as all did was put "B+", "B Positive" and "blood" through the CTRL+F search thing. Anyways, is it worth mentioning that his blood type is B+, or is that something the wiki doesn't really pay attention to? --Aspari (talk) 17:31, 2 January 2014 (EST)

I don't think it's really notable to mention his blood type, especially when few characters within the Halo universe have even had their blood type mentioned.--Spartacus TalkContribs 23:50, 2 January 2014 (EST)
It's not my call, but my opinion would be why not add it? It's a piece of canonical information about this character. It's not a supposition or guess or feeling, it's a hard fact. Having it cited here in the article would help prevent incorrect info on that to appear. For instance, Jorge's blood type is what canonically? It's A+ according to his dog tags and B+ according to the signage on his armor. Which is correct? I don't actually know but I'd assume the one more clearly seen is probably it. Still, it's a discrepancy. -ScaleMaster117 (talk) 08:57, 3 January 2014 (EST)
Well, if we're gonna be voting on it, I'm for it, like he said, why not. --Aspari (talk) 13:25, 3 January 2014 (EST)
This information would be better off covered in Blood than in this article, especially since Scalemaster pointed out an inconsistency issue.— subtank 16:25, 3 January 2014 (EST)
Oh good lord, there's a Halopedia entry on blood. Um, I guess though, in the case where a canonical fact is known, why is it not a part of this character's entry? I noticed that if a character's height is known it is included. Blood type is simply another factor of a person not unlike height. In fact, as a person grows, their height changes unlike their blood type. Long story short, why not include it in character traits like height, mass, gender, etc. when known? Why not include a verifiable fact about a Halo character? In the case of Jorge, the Trivia section can note the discrepancy. -ScaleMaster117 (talk) 19:27, 3 January 2014 (EST)
Perhaps the Blood page could be the one to host the info about blood types. All the characters with known blood types can have it listed there. Tuckerscreator(stalk) 22:13, 3 January 2014 (EST)
That's not a bad idea, but I see no reason not to list them on the character pages as well. Not many people even have any idea a "blood" article exists - besides, having the info in this article is not exactly a big deal either, just a few extra words of trivia. A fact's a fact. --Jugus (Talk | Contribs) 03:57, 4 January 2014 (EST)
Agreed, with the trivia linking back to Blood article. — subtank 09:28, 11 January 2014 (EST)
Agreed as well. I will go ahead and add the info.--Spartacus TalkContribs 11:44, 11 January 2014 (EST)
I'm guessing the source for his blood type comes from this right? Just want to be sure...--Spartacus TalkContribs 11:52, 11 January 2014 (EST)
I thought all ODST game character blood types were on the Medical Reference label on their shoulders. -ScaleMaster117 (talk) 12:52, 11 January 2014 (EST)
