"Sam! Sam! Come on, we gotta get the hell outta' here!"
— A panicked Thom urgently hurries the Chief out of Cryo Two

Technical Chief Thom Shephard was an Engineering Technician for the UNSC aboard the Halcyon-class cruiser UNSC Pillar of Autumn in 2552.[1]

Biography[edit]

Thom, along with Tech Officer Samuel Marcus, unsealed Master Chief John-117 from his cryo-chamber before the Battle of Installation 04. He ran the Chief through several diagnostics and tests for his MJOLNIR Mark V armor. Soon after, Captain Keyes called the Chief to the bridge of the ship as a boarding party of Covenant arrived. A single Sangheili entered the control center of Cryo-B, killing Marcus. Shephard then told the Chief to follow him to the bridge and rushed out the door, where he was killed by a conduit explosion in the wall.[2]

Trivia[edit]

  • In the original Halo: Combat Evolved Shephard's appearance will vary slightly from each play through, appearing as generic crewman models. In Anniversary Shephard has his own unique character model based on Mathieu, a Make-a-Wish kid who wanted to live forever in Halo.[3]
