Ted Brown is a UNSC Marine and a member of Hacksaw Squad. During the UNSC's campaign to retake the shield world Requiem, Brown and the rest of Hacksaw Squad were deployed to a location on Requiem known as "Fortress." They soon came under heavy attack from hostile Covenant forces. In response, the UNSC Infinity sent Spartan Fireteam Crimson to assist the besieged marines.
