  • Fireteam Osiris - Jameson Locke [Hunter Armour]
  • Fireteam Osiris - Edward Buck [Helljumper Armour]
  • Fireteam Osiris - Holly Tanaka [Technician Armour]

Official records show that the Battle of Circinius IV, which resulted in the glassing of the planet and the annihilation of the entire population save for three cadets of the Corbulo Academy of Military Science, took place in the year 2526. Kelly-087 and Fred-104, along with the rest of the SPARTAN-II candidates, were born in 2511, making them fifteen years old at the time.

Blue Team Opening Cinematic

More important than the equipment, however, John assessed his team.

Sam had recovered from the augmentation faster than any of the other Spartans. He paced impatiently around the crates of grenades. He was the strongest of them all. He stood taller than John by a head. He had grown out his sandy hair to three centimeters. Chief Mendez had warned him that he was going to look like a civilian soon.

Kelly, in contrast, had taken the longest to recover. She stood in the corner with her arms crossed over her chest. John had thought she wasn’t going to make it. She was still gaunt and her hair had yet to grow back. Her face, however, still had its rough, angular beauty. She scared John a little, too. She was fast before…now no one could touch her if she didn’t allow it.

Fred sat cross-legged on the deck, twirling a razor-edged combat knife in glittering arcs. He always came in second in all the contests. John thought he could have come in first, but he just didn’t like the attention. He was neither too short nor too tall. He wasn’t overly muscled or slim. His black hair was shot with streaks of silver - a feature he hadn’t had before the augmentation. If anyone in the group could blend into a crowd, it would be him.

Linda was the quietest member of the group. She was pale, had close-cropped red hair, and green eyes. She was a crack shot, an artist with a sniper rifle.

Hey im a huge halo fan and im extremely excited for guardians ! I want to ask who is blue team ? Are they in the novels or something ? I havent heard of them before, I know I must sound like a total amature here :) be great to hear back #huntthetruth

Hi there, exploding-spartan! Glad that you’re so excited for ‘Halo 5′. And if you’re looking for some information about Spartan-II Blue Team, you’ve come to the right place. :)

They’ve been a part of the Halo Universe since it premiered in 2001, but have only appeared in Extended Universe materials up until now - novels, comics, animated shorts, etc. So if you’ve only ever played the games it’s no surprise that you haven’t heard of them (a lot of people are in the same boat as you too, so don’t feel bad). Make no mistake though, they are very important characters and play a huge role in the Master Chief’s own story. So hopefully this brief primer will help get you up to speed, and possibly encourage you to check out some of the books, videos, and comics that chronicle Blue Team’s past adventures before the next game comes out…

I’m going to assume you know at least a little about the SPARTAN-II Program: in which Dr. Catherine Halsey (with UNSC/ONI approval) orchestrated the abduction of 75 children in the year 2517, and over the next 7 years had them extensively trained and physically augmented to become super-soldiers. Halsey is also the mind behind the development of the Spartans’ signature MJOLNIR Armor. The Spartan-IIs were originally meant to be the soldiers that would help the UNSC quash the human rebellion in the outer colonies, but after the arrival of the Covenant most of them spent the majority of their service fighting the hostile alien forces (though they were still assigned to neutralize rebels from time to time).

Blue Team has had it’s share of Spartans that have come and gone throughout it’s existence - some notable ones being Samuel-034, William-043, and Kurt-051. But as it stands currently the core four members are John-117 (a.k.a. the Master Chief), Kelly-087, Frederic-104, and Linda-058.

  • John-117

The Master Chief has been the leader of Blue Team ever since he was in SPARTAN training, and held the position for the duration of the Human-Covenant War. The Covenant’s eventual assault on the planet Reach in 2552 led to a series of events that resulted in his first lengthy separation from his fellow Spartan-IIs (as seen in Halos 1-4). After the Didact’s attack on Earth in 2557, the Chief was reunited with Kelly-087, Fred-104, and Linda-058 - and the four of them returned to work together in the field. What events led them to go off the grid prior to ‘Halo 5′ are currently unknown. John considers all the Spartans to be his family, and will go to great lengths to protect them from as much harm as possible without compromising their duty as soldiers. He is particularly close to his Blue Team squadmates, and feels most comfortable and confident when leading them into battle.

  • Kelly-087

Kelly-087 has been John-117′s best friend and right-hand on Blue Team since the first days of their SPARTAN training. She has a rather varied skillset, but most of her specialties hinge on her incredible speed (both physically and mentally). Using her ability to literally give their enemies the run-around has been a staple part of Blue Team’s battle strategies from training through the entire Human-Covenant War, and how Kelly earned the moniker of “Rabbit”. She is also unique in her jovial personality and how her mannerisms are often more expressive and open compared to her peers. Kelly has an extremely high tolerance for pain and a knack for surviving devastating injuries - all while staying on her feet and continuing to fight. Her unflappable constitution is what has made her an invaluable support to her team leaders throughout her entire career.
