Political and military information



Fireteam Leader[3][4]


Spartan Terry Hedge was a Spartan-IV serving aboard the UNSC Infinity as the leader of Fireteam Lancer.[3] He participated in the campaign against Jul 'Mdama's Covenant and mechanical Promethean constructs within Requiem in early 2558.[3]


Spartan augmentation[edit]

By some point following the Human-Covenant War, Terry Hedge, already a veteran, had gone through a careful screening process and had been enrolled as a Spartan-IV candidate.[5] He soon thereafter underwent a series of biological augmentations which included physical, neurological, muscular, and skeletal enhancements, in addition to gene therapy and an implanted datacluster in his neural interface that could work with Mjolnir armor and artificial intelligences.[6]

Requiem campaign[edit]

After the New Phoenix Incident,[1] Hedge was assigned to lead Fireteam Lancer aboard the UNSC Infinity, and as such he traveled with the ship when it deployed to the Forerunner shield world known as Requiem in early 2558.[3] The Infinity departed from Earth on February 6 and had arrived at the shield world before 0500 hours the next day.[7][8] Relatively near the end of the campaign within the shield world, Fireteam Lancer was tasked with holding a site known as "Apex." The discovery of a Covenant nest in the hills nearby prompted Hedge to report in to the Infinity.[9] Spartan Commander Sarah Palmer acknowledged his report and subsequently ordered Fireteam Crimson to assist Lancer in clearing out the enemy from its position.[3][9] Once Crimson touched down in the area, Hedge and two others from Lancer met up with the team and let it be known that the Covenant forces had hidden shield generators which barred entry into a series of caves with active camouflage. Once Crimson had dealt with the generators, with assistance from Lancer, Palmer ordered Lancer to follow Crimson inside. Together, the two fireteams launched a coordinated attack on the aliens, which were assisted by mechanical Promethean constructs. In one of the caves, the Spartans discovered and freed Fireteam Switchback, which had previously been taken prisoner. All three teams were subsequently evacuated on a single D79-TC Pelican.[3]

Battle for Zeta Halo[edit]

Main article: Battle for Zeta Halo

"No retreat, no surrender, and no quarter. That's what's on the menu for us today, and it's our job to damn well make sure it's the same for them."
— Hedge to other survivors at the House of Reckoning

On December 12, 2559, Spartan Hedge was onboard UNSC Infinity when it was ambushed by Banished forces upon arrival at Installation 07. As the Infinity fell to the Banished assault, Captain Thomas Lasky was evacuated from the ship, and Spartan Hudson Griffin ordered all Spartans to evacuate.[10] At some point during the battle, Hedge was captured by the Banished. He was taken to the House of Reckoning in February 2560, after the Banished's assault on the wreckage of UNSC Mortal Reverie. Hedge, along with Gunnery Sergeant Elena Bobrov, Lance Corporal Singh, and a Sangheili they nicknamed "Doc", were forced to participate in the Trials of Atriox, a ritual devised by War Chief Escharum in which UNSC survivors were to defend a large room from multiple waves of Banished troops. If they survived, they would be fed food and water, only to go through the trial again on the next day.[1] Despise his efforts, Hedge was ultimately killed by the Banished.[2]


Like others on Fireteam Lancer, Spartan Hedge armored himself in RECRUIT-class GEN2 Mjolnir during his time within Requiem.[3]
