This Unnamed Colonel was a Colonel in the UNSC Marine Corps during the Battle of Earth.[1]


Battle of Mombasa[]

Main article: Battle of Mombasa

During the Battle of Mombasa, this Colonel was in command of several platoons in New Mombasa, specifically in the Uplift Nature Reserve.

When the ODST Taylor "Dutch" Miles arrived after the Slipspace event, the Colonel had ordered a Warthog charge on an enemy formation. He was glad to hear an ODST was there to support his troops. ONI was constantly contacting him, which he vocally complained about. When Second platoon was under heavy fire he ordered Dutch and the other Warthogs to move on their position. He was located near a Covenant LZ across a bridge in the Reserve's Section C, close to the city center.

He was killed by a piece of debris when the New Mombasa Orbital Elevator collapsed during the battle. His last orders were for all UNSC forces in the area to withdraw and regroup elsewhere in the city.[1]
