OFFICIAL HUMAN CHARACTERS
Marcus Fenix: Few have given more and lost as much as Marcus Fenix. A promising soldier during the Pendulum Wars, Marcus saw everything change during Emegence Day. Marcus bravely fought the Locust for ten years, then, during an intense battle, Marcus abandoned his post to rescue his father, Professor Adam Fenix. But he arrived too late. Marcus was tried dereliction of duty and was sentenced for 40 years in Jacinto Maximum Security Prison. Incarcerated for 4 years before being released to fight the Locust again, Marcus was later promoted to Sergeant.
Along with the rest of Delta squad, he won a battle for humanity by detonating the Lightmass bomb and destroying much of the Locust Hollow. With his reputation restored, Marcus now focuses on finishing the war against the Locust, and helping his friend Dom on his own personal mission.
Marcus and Delta squad were sent to Landown to drill into the Hollow, where they found out Locust were sinking cities with a giant worm. After being swallowed by the worm, Delta Squad sawed it's arteries and killed it. Marcus and Delta Squad went to the New Hope facility were they found out about the Sires, after which they went under Mount Kadar. Soon enough they found Nexus, and seen the Queen, then they did battle with Skorge. After defeating Skorge, Delta squad returned to jacinto where they completed their plan of flooding the Hollow by using a Lambent Brumak. Delta is unaware that some Locust are still alive...
Dominic Santiago: A seasoned fighter who's positive in even the darkest of hours, Dominic Santiago freed his friend Marcus Fenix from Jacinto Maximum Security Prison and recruited him into Delta Squad. His battlefield intensity is matched only by his loyalty to Marcus.
Dom's friendly and outgoing nature lets him form relationships with other factions of Sera, including the Stranded. He's always quick with a joke, but Dom's amiability masks an inner conflict, a conflict that makes the war against the Locust Horde, for him, far more serious - and far more personal, the Locust had captured his wife and killed his children. When Dom found his wife outside Nexus, he was shattered to see her in such bad shape and killed her out of pity. Dom now has little to no hope...
Augustus Cole: Private Augustus "Cole Train" Cole was once a successful Thrashball player known for his hard hitting and flamboyant style. After Emergence Day, Cole joined the military and brought that same grit and intensity to the battlefield. Cole has spent most of his military career alongside his friend Damon Baird, as the two begin a new chapter in their military careers, one thing stands true: Nothing stops the "Cole train," baby!
Damon Baird: Private damon Baird is a dedicated tech-head and professional skeptic. In Baird's head, if something can go wrong, it probably already has. His sarcasm can keep people at a distance, which is why he prefers the company of machines. He believes in the Coalition's cause, but he's often frustrated with command decisions, and he took offense when Hoffman promoted Marcus to leader of Delta Squad instead of him. Baird longs to one day command a squad of his own and sees his recent reassignment as a step in the right direction.
Anya Stroud: As Delta's control contact, Anya Stroud guides Delta Squad through their mission to destroy the Locust. Thanks to recent updates, the JACK bot now has a foldout screen which Anya can project herself on, so her connection to the team, and a certain Sargeant, can grow stronger.
Colonel Victor Hoffman: A military man to the core, Hoffman demands disipline and sacrifice from those under his command. Hoffman's strict adherance to these rules has caused him to cross swords with Marcus Fenix. It was Hoffman's testimony that convicted Marcus for Derliction of duty, although Hoffman later promoted him to Sargeant out of necessity. Now as the war continues, Hoffman must put aside his doubt, and trust Delta Squad again.
Minh Young Kim: A firm, honourable soldier, with a "by-the-book" leadership style, Kim led the mission to rescue Marcus Fenix, although he thought of Marcus as a deserter. Kim paid the ultimate price when General RAAM killed him.
Dizzy Wallin: A former Stranded turned reluctant soldier, Dizzy is torn between his distrust for the Coalition and doing whats right for his family. Dizzy feared for his family, so he signed onto Operation Lifeboat, he joined the COG in exchange for the safety of his family. Dizzy is now an Assault Derrick driver. Dizzy was last seen battling Skorge with Tai.
Tai Kaliso: A boulder of a man, Tai's muscular appearence stands in contrast to his meditative, quiet personality. Tai is very spiritual, which gets odd glances from soldiers who otherwise respect him. Tai has been friend of Marcus sice the Pendulum Wars. Tai was captured by Skorge, and was put on a Torture Barge. Delta Squad found him in horrible condition, Marcus gave him a shotgun to fight with, which he instead used to blow his own head off.
Chairman Prescott: Chairman Prescott is the current leader of the COG forces. Chairman Prescott is an excellent speaker who promises humanity will win the war, his rally cry rings throughout Jacinto.
Jack: Jack is Delta's robot companion. When Delta needs a door opened or a computer hacked, they turn to Jack. Jack allows Delta to communicate directly with Anya or Hoffman.
Anthony Carmine: Anthony was the second youngest of the 4 Carmine brothers. Anthony had utmost respect for veterans like Dom and Marcus. Anthony used a standard COG helmet which restricted his view, this caused his death when his gun jammed, and he was shot in the head by a Sniper.
Benjamin Carmine: Benjamin was the youngest of the 4 Carmine's. Just like his brother, Carmine was full of energy, and was afraid, of the Locust tatics. Carmine was killed when the Riftworm swallowed Delta's chopper, and he was killed by a Riftworm parasite.
Jace Stratton: Jace had a tough early life being brought up in an orphanage in Jacinto; it is not clear how his parents died. After leaving the orphanage he enlisted to join the Coalition of Ordered Governments Armed Forces as a Gear; he completed basic training with his childhood friend Gil Gonzalez.
As a private in Delta Squad Jace served alongside Marcus Fenix, Dominic Santiago, Michael Barrick and Gil Gonzalez. During a mission to recover ammunition and search for lost Gears. Delta Squad was ambushed. Gil gets hit in the ambush and dies in Jace's arms, this reminds Jace of how his brother died in his arms when he was a young boy. When they return to Jacinto Delta Squad receives a weeks' leave.
Jace then visits the orphanage he grew up in reliving old memories. After their leave Delta Squad is charged with investigating seismic activity between Jacinto and Montevado. They get attacked en-route by Nemacyst with the Raven pilot being killed by them, Jace then takes the control of the stricken chopper. Later Jace leads a squad Alpha-7 into the Hollow landing shortly after Delta squad. The ultimate fate of Jace and Alpha-7 is unknown.
Gil Gonzalez: Gil Gonzalez was a fairly new Gear in Delta Squad two months after the Lightmass Bomb went off. He had been in basic with Jace Stratton, and found it weird serving with a war hero such as Marcus Fenix. He was shot by Drones when the team investigated an old distress beacon and was ambushed. He was the only human casualty of the battle, bleeding to death in Jace's arms just as the last of the Boomers were finished off.
Bernadette(bernie) Mataki: Sergeant Bernadette "Bernie" Mataki was born in the South Islands in the 34th year of the Pendulum War. She joined the Coalition of Organized Governments at 18 years old. She was a hardened veteran who trained commandos for the COG. She had Dom and other trainees kill chickens with their bare hands and skin them with knives to teach them how to eat when out in the field (also had the effect of reinforcing training on how to kill other humans). Sergeant Mataki was an expert sniper, but also accomplished at close range fighting and hand-to-hand combat. She had taught Dominic Santiago and Georg Timiou a valuable lesson on how to humanely kill a chicken. She fought in the Battle of Aspho Fields and watched Dom's older brother Carlos take his own life to save C Company and Marcus. It transpired that Bernie was willing to shoot Carlos to end his suffering, but he managed to pull the grenade pin before Bernie could fire her sniper rifle. During the late stages of the war, she was wounded and sent back home to recuperate. When E-Day happened, she commandeered a boat and fought single-handedly to protect COG zones. She was trapped many thousands of miles away from Jacinto after E-Day, but travelled for 14 years to finally reach the last bastion of human civilisation, where she encountered the Stranded and many Grubs along the way. She had to sleep with a gun in her hand to fend off any attack that came her way.
Major Helena Stroud: Major Helena Stroud is the mother of Anya Stroud and instructor of Marcus Fenix and Carlos Santiago in which she trains them for their amphibious assault on the northern side of Aspho Point. Anya Stroud had just transferred from a local academy and met Marcus and Carlos for the first time before they were to be sent off to fight at Aspho Fields. She was killed after throwing grenades into an enemy tank and was post-humorously awarded the Embry Star for her actions. It is unknown who fathered her daughter, Anya.
Carlos Santiago: Carlos was a key soldier in the Pendulum Wars, participating in the Battle of Aspho Fields and holding off the forces of the enemy. He was wounded trying to stop an APC and gave his life to stop it by blowing up the bridge to Aspho Point and ending his life, knowing he was too badly injured to survive and not wanting Marcus to get himself killed in a rescue attempt. Despite his friend's protests, Marcus had still tried to save him, but Carlos pulled the pin and blew the bridge. In honor of Carlos, Dom named his children after him; His son's first name, Benedicto, which was Carlos' middle name, and his daughter's middle name Carla, which is the feminine form of Carlos.
Padrick: South Islander who is known for being a great sniper. He is red-headed and freckled, he has the Islander attitude to go along with the tribal tattoos. His spotter is Baz who also served with Marcus Fenix and Carlos Santiago on the Maranday-Sarfuth border.
Baz: Was Padrick's spotter at Maranday-Saruth Border.
COG Soldiers: COG soldiers will fight for the survival of humanity. COG's follow the command of Prescott to no ends, they will have themselves killed if it means that thier families, and friends, can survive.
Sgt. John Harper: 9 year veteran (I think), started GoW2 in a hospital recovering from a bad cough. Went to the hollow in a grindlift for Operation Hollow Storm, and was captured soon after. Was held prisoner, but escaped and died while evacuating a girl and her family from Jacinto. How he escaped from the Hollow is unknown.
Pvt. Dillan Murphy: Private Dillan Murphy used to be part of the infantry. He then became pilot of KR-59. It is unknown whether he's dead or not, because only his tags were found. His tags were completely clean, there was no blood.
Sammy: Sammy's rank is unknown, it is assumed he is a private because he was talking to his ma. He was going to Landown (possibly as a part of Operation Hollow Storm) and probably died on the way, as his tags were stained with blood.
Pvt. Hank Bissell: Pvt. Hank Bissell was a soldier who is mad at the cog, referring to them as "fascist bastards". He took part in Operation Lifeboat and possibly Operation Hollow Storm because he was riding in a grindlift into the ass of the enemy. His note shows his anger at the COG, talking about the lies they made to him. He may still be alive, because his COG tags had no blood stains.
Sgt. Devon Jackson: Sgt. Devon Jackson was a gear who helped with evacuation in Jacinto. Again, it is unknown whether he died or not because his tags had no blood.

Chap: Chap was the owner of "Chap's Gas Station", he lent Delta an APC. Chap was later seen in the Hollow with a large group of Stranded.
Dr. Doug Sato: Doug was one of the professors at New Hope. It is assumed that he resigned, because in his note he said he was working on a resignation letter. But the note has blood stains, so he might have died.
Ruth: Ruth was one of the test subjects at New Hope. She is female, and had some of the characteristics of a locust and a sire when she was being examined. There are several theories saying that she is the locust queen.
Dr. Stephanie Zimmer: Stephanie was a professor at New Hope. She probably resigned or ran away from the facility some time after Dr. Doug Sato. She wrote a Journal about her experiences at the facility.
Sven: Dr. Doug Sato mentions Sven in his note. He was mauled by a male sire and probably died.
Jennifer: Jennifer is a stranded. There's no more info on her... Her journal was found in the level "Captivity".
Julia Samson: There is also some conspiracy about Julia because she has the same last name as Niles, the director of the New Hope Medical Facility. She lived in Ilima.
Dr. Nicollette Shannon: A doctor at the Jacinto Hospital thing. She worked with Dr. Merriweather. She believes that Dr. Merriweather's judgement of her patients might be affected by her close ties with the COG. Her patients had paranoia and aggression.
Wayne Mitchell: An ambulance driver that brought in 4 patients that were all coughing up blood. This could quite possibly include the survivors from the crash from act 4 chapter 1 in GoW1, but there's no sure way of knowing.
Stu: Stu was the stranded that Chaps mentioned was traveling with Maria. He compares living in the hollow to camping. Stu was probably caught and killed by the locust. If the locust didn't kill him, the flood probably did.
Russell: Russell is a stranded that came to Jacinto from Montevado. He probably got to Jacinto before the light mass bomb was detonated, because he says the kryll attacked him during the nights when he was coming to Jacinto. He signed up for Lifeboat and became a conscript.
