Political and military information



Victor Ramos was a human of the UNSC Marine Corps serving as an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper. Born in around 2532 in Casbah City on the Inner Colony of Tribute, Ramos was the heavy weapons and support specialist of Fireteam Raven, an elite team of ODSTs attached to UNSC Pillar of Autumn during the Battle of Installation 04.[2]


Early life[edit]

Victor Ramos was born around 2532 in Casbah City the colony world of Tribute. As a child, Ramos grew up in a neighborhood that still bore the scars of insurrectionist terrorist attacks from nearly a decade before. From the time he was a child however, family fears of another colonist uprising had turned into an existential dread of Covenant invasion. Ramos enlisted in the UNSC the moment he could, determined to give his loved ones – and many others like them – a reason to never be afraid again.[3]

However, as Ramos and his fellow Helljumpers were forced to watch Reach fall in 2552, he was forced to confront the knowledge that the Covenant were also razing his own homeworld at the same time, and there was nothing he could do about it. When the UNSC Pillar of Autumn jumped to Alpha Halo, he was left to ponder the fate of his family back on Tribute, and promised himself he’d make it back as soon as he could.[3]

Battle of Installation 04[edit]

Main article: Battle of Installation 04

By August 2552, Ramos was the heavy weapons specialist of the elite ODST team, Fireteam Raven. Raven were present aboard the Halcyon-class light cruiser UNSC Pillar of Autumn for Operation: RED FLAG and the Fall of Reach, as well as the ship's subsequent escape from the battle on August 30. On September 19, the cruiser arrived in the Soell system at Installation 04 and the crew was brought back online. Raven were among the soldiers ordered by Major Antonio Silva to defend the ship from Covenant boarding actions, and were succesfully able to fend off waves of Sangheili, Kig-Yar and Unggoy before proceeding to perform a spacewalk and man the vessel's M910 Rampart point defense network, at the request of the AI Wellsley.[4]

However, the squad would eventually retreat back to the cruiser's SOEIV drop bays and abandon ship, along with the rest of the ship's crew complement.[4] Ramos and his squad would land on Installation 04 accompanied by a mobile uplink to Wellsley, and begin the journey to reunite with allied forces on the ringworld.[3] Roughly 28 hours later[3], Raven would link up with an armored convoy led by Lieutenant Melissa McKay, and man an M12B Warthog during the Raid on the Pillar of Autumn.[5] Ramos would later return to Alpha Base in time for the Covenant attack there, and join the camp's defense.[6]

During the defense of Alpha Base, Ramos and Raven were recalled to the canyons near the Halo's control room to defend against an emerging threat - the Flood. The team was inserted via Falcon to clear the way for an important mission being undertaken by John-117. Ramos would help fight off numerous waves of Covenant and Flood forces, but eventually extract out of the canyon once the Spartan's mission was complete there. However, the team's Falcon was shot down by a Zurdo-pattern Wraith[7], and crashed elsewhere on the ring near a Forerunner structure. The team would make their way inside the structure for cover from the battling Covenant and Flood while they awaited extraction, and eventually were able to take down several Flood Juggernauts before their D77-TC Pelican was able to pull them out.[8]


With Halo's purpose now clear and the situation deteriorating rapidly, the Master Chief was left with no choice but to destroy the ring. To facilitate the ring's destruction, Ramos and his squad joined a last-ditch UNSC attempt to hold off Covenant forces descending on the crash site of the Pillar of Autumn. The squad were deployed in a Warthog to fight off Covenant and Flood ground forces. The squad would eventually take down a Deutoros-pattern Scarab and masses of Flood and Covenant, but ultimately die along with all other personnel on the ring during the explosion caused by the detonation of the nuclear fusion reactors of the Pillar of Autumn.[9]


Ramos wore a green-painted set of the ODST/HVY armor. This armor bore a squared chest plate and shoulders, with no mounted helmet attachments. Ramos typically wielded an MA5B assault rifle, though additionally carried an ammunition pack full of extra ammunition and a combat knife.[2][10]
