I'm in progress building my ODST right now and have been working on a bio during my breaks at work.
Here's what I have so far, let me know what you guys think.

- Served in UNMC for 4 years handling iinsurrectionist forces before being selected to join ODST.
- Selected for ODST in 2544 after escaping capture by insurrectionist forces after a failed attack on a facility in a fringe system. He was able to modify a hardened military system to section off and vent the atmosphere from the rooms surrounding his comrades, earning the nickname "cipher".
- Stationed in orbit of Reach in 2549

- Escaped aboard the frigate Aegis Fate
- Multiple blind jumps made following the Cole Protocol

- During the battle of earth, Cipher-RS was orbital dropped as the first wave of ODSTs to go to ground after the fall of the orbital elevator outside of Voy.
- The drop was botched, leaving Cipher and a handful of ODSTs and tag-long marines to meetup with forces trying to retake the docks.
- Evacced back to the Aegis Fate after the incursion of the Flood and opening of the portal to the Ark.
- Carried aboard the Shadow of Intent to the Ark and sent to ground at Tower three to lower shields.
- Returned to the Aegis Fate following the battle.
- Evacced with the Fleet of Redemption back to Earth before the firing of the Ark.

Still in note form, I will flesh it out into a solid biography once I have a bit more time.

Looks good to me, with one concern. Your time with the unscmc fighting innies is from 2538-2544, but that's well into the covie war. Were we fighting the innies during that time?

FYI, our characters would be on the Aegis Fate together during the mission to the Ark. Hi shipmate!

39155-15051-BA: Brian J. Alden | Pilot/ODST || UNSC Air Force Materiel Command: AMRDEC | Master Sergeant || Tucson, AZ

One-line Bio: Assigned to UNSC Infinity recovering military assets.

Brief Bio: Born on Dwarka in 2526 to loyalist parents, his family moved to New Carthage to support the war effort against the Covenant. Working on weapons and vehicles throughout his childhood, he trained to be a pilot and joined the UNSC Marine Corps at 18. He served aboard the UNSC Midsummer Night from 2545 to 2552, flying Pelicans for the ODSTs. Over that time he trained with the ODSTs, served on the ground with them, and eventually was initiated and transfered to the 105th. He assisted in the evacuation of New Alexandria on Reach, the resistance in New Mombasa [Halo 2], the landing on Delta Halo, and the storming of the Citadel on the Arc. Alden escaped the Arc aboard the UNSC Aegis Fate. After spending the post Covenant War era working for ONI recovering abandoned separatist and Covenant tech from the battlefield aboard the Fate, Sgt. Alden has been reassigned to the UNSC Infinity battlegroup to partake in the recovery of Forerunner tech. (This takes place during Escalation/Spartan Ops.)

Wow I might start my charters bio
hers what I got so far
spartan 055 was Chosen for the spartan 2 project. But was put in a different out fit to the chiefs. In the out fit their were three soldiers spartan 055 (Code name: WD-40 or just WD), DATA CORRUPTED and DATA CORRUPTED . these three Spartans were part of a more advanced one person army training, sadly DATA CORRUPTED die at the battle for reach and DATA CORRUPTED die wean the forward on crash landed.

spartan 055 has fort his way in to lengands, cheating death many times, killing hordes of Covent and even clearing out a hole inseractionest base signal handily. Whever this be true or not if your on his hit list your livening on browed time.

what do guys think? Got any suggestions?

.
I think the war had really quieted down (Human near-extinction tends to do that), but there were still rebels floating around at least from First Strike. (The rebel asteroid base they tracked down to attempt to repair the covenant ship they stole).I can't imagine that all the tensions would go away. Likely the various factions just went underground during the Human-Covenant war.

My concern with your bio would be that what Infinity is doing is pretty much covered in the comic, etc. where they aren't really covering any military assets and Forerunner tech, that's why I'd love to hear more.
Also, there are no ODSTs on Infinity. Spartans-IV have been assigned to Infinity, and this is pretty much the biggest base for them, with the S-Deck //Spartan Town//.
What makes me wonder - how did your character end up working for ONI? ODSTs aren't under ONI and ONI isn't really issuing any ODSTs to command, they have more than enough of their agents.

Thanks!! He was a pilot so I suppose it wouldn't be weird for him to be aboard. I don't remember seeing anything about Spartan IV integration in aircraft to improve handling or ability, so I could only assume normal pilots were still needed, ODST or not.

- Born in 2498 on the Jovian Moon of Callisto
- Attended the Luna OCS Academy in 2516, passed out in 2518 but not with full honours, instead quietly selected for ODST
- Fully joined the ODST in 2520
- Fought the Insurrection for 5 years
- With the Covenant Attacks on Harvest in 2525, Mesh was transferred to the UNSC Spirit of Fire.
- During the Arcadia Event, Mesh was separated from his squad in a Combat Drop, assumed KIA. (SoF leaves the system for the events of Halo Wars 1)
- A week later, Mesh found a UNSC Marine squad that were also separated, and together they called for help.
- Due to the Spirit of Fire leaving the system, and then subsequently being declared 'Lost with All Hands', Mesh was reassigned to various other ships.
- Stationed at the Reach Naval Academy in 2551
- Fought during the Fall of Reach
- Escaped aboard the frigate UNSC Stalwart Dawn
- Multiple blind jumps made following the Cole Protocol
- After apx a week of dodging Covenant patrols and silent running it returned to Earth
- Assigned to the UNSC Say My Name in preparation for the Battle of Earth
- Mesh was part of the ill fated drop that was to assault Regret's flagship, however the Slipspace jump sent Mesh's pod (and a few others) back to 2009, in Britain.
- the British Ministry of Defense immediately questioned the squad, and their validity, before finally accepting and folding them into the British Armed Forces, in a new squad named the 'Queen's 23rd Royal ODST'.

LOL, what can I say... At least Mesh will have a nice retirement... Well, 54 years old and transported back to 2009... Poor old man trying to adjust to all that old-tech stuff.

That with the jump back in time - same story as as S-458 who got magically transported in space and in time back to 21st century in the game Dead or Alive 4? XDDD

My only concern is having gone to the Martian Engineering Academy for 4 years, which I assume is equivalent to a college education/degree, as you started there at 18, would you not have gone for OCS and joined the UNSCMC as an officer? Other than that, I quite like it. Great attention to detail and it seems to fit really well into the Halo timeline.

1. ONI has used ODST squads in the past. Look at Alpha 9 & Palmer's squad in New Blood and Kilo 5 in Glasslands.
2. Technically, my character was part of a task force recovering UNSC, Inny, and Covy assets abandoned during the war. As an experienced pilot, he could fix and fly just about anything they found. You know ONI would have their hands in such an op.
3. During Halo 4: Spartan Ops, Infinity went to Requiem to study (and probably take) Forerunner tech. My character joined them as a continuation of his previous assignment.
4. After Requiem blew up (spoilers), he wasn't reassigned. He stayed on board Infinity through the comics and Halo 5.

Yeah, yeah I see your point. As there are many ONI operatives onboard the Infinity, this ODST might be one of them. ;)
And I remember the infamous Kilo 5 and others. ^^
Thanks for explaining the "forerunner tech" stuff. ;) I was just wondering (hoping) if you meant the Requiem campaign or something else. :D
