Sergeant Marcus Fenix was a Gear soldier in the Coalition of Ordered Governments army. A legendary war hero, Marcus served with distinction in the Pendulum Wars which earned him the Embry Star, the COG’s highest military award, for his actions during the Battle of Aspho Fields. Like the rest of humankind, he saw everything change on Emergence Day. Marcus bravely fought the Locust for ten years until the Battle of Ephyra, where he abandoned his post to rescue his father, Professor Adam Fenix, but could not reach him in time.
A professional soldier, Marcus Fenix is generally gruff and aggressive. He is a natural leader; being promoted to corporal not long after he joined the army, and was promoted to sergeant after the death of Lt. Kim.

Corporal Dominic “Dom” Santiago was a Gear soldier in the Coalition of Ordered Governments army. Dom was the younger brother of Carlos Santiago and son of Eduardo Santiago and Eva Santiago. Born in a Pre E-Day Sera, he grew up listening to his father’s war stories and going to school with Carlos and best friend Marcus Fenix. When the COG collapsed, Dom joined the rest of Delta aboard the CNV Sovereign, serving as a member of a rapid response force that defended former COG communities.
Dominic Santiago was known for his out right loyalty to his friend and some fear in the COG high command that his loyalty conflicts with loyalty to the COG.

Private Augustus Cole or Gus was once a successful Thrashball player known for his hard-hitting and flamboyant style. After Emergence Day, Cole joined the military as a Gear soldier, and brought that same “grit and intensity” to the battlefield, which saved his life more than once. Cole has spent most of his military career alongside his friend and foil, Damon Baird. Throughout his career as a Gear, he has rejected every military promotion that has been offered under the grounds that having rank is not going to affect how many Locust he can kill.
When it comes to killing Locust, he considers himself the best of the best. While his natural energy and exuberance are for real, he exaggerates it around his squad mates to instill confidence and raise morale.
Damon S. Baird
Voiced by Fred Tatasciore
Corporal Damon Baird was a Gear soldier who was an expert in several technical and mechanical fields. He joined the Coalition of Ordered Governments army on Emergence Day, and soon after met Augustus Cole, who became his only friend. When the COG collapsed, Baird joined the rest of Delta aboard the CNV Sovereign as part of the rapid response force that would assist several settlements the remnants of the COG had set up on the mainland.
Baird is a rather negative and sarcastic person, and is usually unkind. He speaks his mind freely, a trait that often annoys (even hurts) others, and most often gets him into trouble.

Private Samantha “Sam” Byrne, also called “duchashka” or “lovely duchess” by the Gorasni, was a female Gear soldier that fought in Delta-One during the Stranded Insurgency and the Lambent Invasion. When the Coalition of Ordered Governments collapsed and was forced to abandon Vectes, Sam chose to go on the CNV Sovereign as part of the rapid response force that could assist several different settlements the COG remnants had set up. Sam was of the daughter of a Kashkuri liaison to the COG army and a Tyran Gear.
Sam feels she has to prove she is willing to take more risk than the male Gears, something that Col.Victor Hoffman thought of as a liability unless Sam had a good commander.

Clayton “Clay” Carmine was one of the four Carmine brothers. As the oldest brother in the Carmine family, he is an experienced and veteran Gear; unfortunately, he is also one of only two surviving members of the Carmine Family. A soldier during the Locust War, he continued fighting in the Lambent Invasion alongside Delta-One.
Clayton has a tattoo of his two brothers, Anthony and Benjamin, on his right arm and a Lancer Assault Rifle with the words “Born 2 Saw”. On his armor the words “GRUB KILLER”, “KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN”, “PRACTICE RELOADING”, and “DESTROY LOCUST” are inscribed and he appears more intimidating and has a greater blood lust than his brothers.
Victor S. Hoffman
Voiced by Jamie Alcroft
Colonel Victor S. Hoffman was a Gear officer and the Chief of Defense Staff of the Coalition of Ordered Governments during the Locust War and former director of special forces, answering only to Chairman Richard Prescott. Hoffman hated being promoted so high, preferring to remain a frontline Gear. He is a battlefield commander, and has fought alongside his fellow Gears in the Pendulum Wars, the Locust War, and the Lambent Invasion.
A military man to the core, Hoffman demands discipline and sacrifice from those under his command. Hoffman is a by-the-book soldier known to lead his men into combat.

Sergeant Bernadette “Bernie” Mataki, or Boomer lady by Cole and Granny by Baird, was a Gear soldier in the Coalition of Ordered Governments armed forces. Bernie was born on the island of Galangi in the South Islands during the 33rd year of the Pendulum Wars. She was the daughter of a farmer, who came from an Northerner family. After joining the COG at eighteen years of age, she became one of the best snipers in the army.
Bernie is proud, and most notably well-trained to survive in the wilderness alone.

Corporal Jayson “Jace” Stratton was a survivor of Emergence Day and a Gear soldier in the Coalition of Ordered Governments army. He served in Delta-One and Midnight Squad, and later became the commander of Alpha-Seven during Operation: Hollow Storm.
A religious man, Jace had doubts about a higher power after fighting in the Locust War and watching his family and best friend Gil die during the war and witnessing the deaths of many innocents, but restored his faith after saving a girl and her mother. Jace is also very smart and analytical, managing to even impress Baird by listening to him and helping him figure out what happened to the Harvest and other vessels.

Lieutenant Anya Stroud was a Gear officer in the Coalition of Ordered Governments army and the daughter of Major Helena Stroud. She joined the COG army to follow in her mother’s footsteps, but unlike her mother, she did not serve as a frontline Gear. Stroud instead became a communications officer and served in her mother’s unit during the Pendulum Wars, it was there that she met Marcus Fenix. She began to train to become a frontline Gear, while still serving as a controller and, when the Lambent emerged, Anya fully embraced being on the frontline, fighting alongside the Delta Squad.
Early in her life, Anya often felt overshadowed and in awe of her mother. Although very beautiful, Anya didn’t seem to know she was considered to be such by others. When her mother was killed, Anya became stronger, firmer and more independent.

Queen Myrrah was the Queen of the Locust Horde during both the Locust Civil War and Locust War simultaneously, and then continued in the Lambent Invasion with the remaining loyal Locust Horde forces. Leading her people hoping to colonize the surface and to destroy the Lambent threat in the Hollow, she leads the genocide of the Human race. Due to her status over her subjects as the Queen, the Locust treat her with the utmost respect, dying for her if necessary. In the Chain of Command in the Locust Horde, Queen Myrrah is the central leader.
Myrrah holds cynical and xenophobic views, which drive her ruthless war tactics.

Professor and retired Major Adam Jonathon Fenix was a former Gear and devoted professor at the Lacroix University, as well as a member of the Defense Research Agency. He was the husband of Doctor Elaine Fenix and father of legendary war hero Marcus Fenix. He fought in the Pendulum Wars, but accepted a position designing weapons to try to end the war faster.
Adam was a caring yet distant father. This pushed his son Marcus further away from him and towards the Santiago family. Adam Fenix also had a great sense of responsibility for the men and women under his command, and he took every death personally and doubted how the Pendulum Wars were being fought.

The Honorable Chairman Richard Prescott was the Chairman of the Coalition of Ordered Governments during the Locust War. The son of David Prescott, a former Chairman during the Pendulum Wars, Prescott served as a Gear but never saw combat due to his political connections.
Due to his dedication to the Coalition, Prescott is known to be available at any time – day or night. Prescott would do anything for the COG, even sacrificing the few for the many. Some of his methods cross both moral and ethical lines. Prescott’s greatest skills however, lay in his ability to give speeches and inspire confidence, but he is also an extremely skilled liar.

Aaron Griffin was a Stranded leader who fought alongside the Gears against the Locust and Lambent during the Lambent Invasion. He was a business man based in Char, where he built an empire based on Imulsion.
Captain Quentin Michaelson was the captain of the Coalition of Ordered Governments navy vessel CNV Pomeroy and commander of D-flotilla during Operation Leveler. During the Locust War, Michaelson was in command of counter piracy for the COG Navy. After the evacuation of Jacinto City, Michaelson was promoted to head of the navy, and assisted in the decision to move the remnants of the COG to the island of Vectes. When the COG eventually collapsed, and Michaelson commanded the remnants of the fleet from the CNV Sovereign, running the rapid response force that helped out the onshore communities established by the former COG.
Victor Hoffman thought of Michaelson as “raffish” with an eye for women. However, when he was wearing armor, he went from “raffish” to “quietly menacing”. He is also considered very charming.
Chairman Tomas Dalyell was the Chairman of the Coalition of Ordered Governments during the final years of the Pendulum Wars.
Colonel Hoffman described Dalyell more of a businessman then a politician. Dalyell was also quite determined and steadfast, ready to do anything to preserve the nation of Tyrus and the COG and all of its ideals.
