Note. Guide still a work in progress. We don’t know yet which other characters will be featured in game. More will be unveiled near game release.
Marcus Fenix is an honorable solider who gave up everything to serve the goodwill. He fought the locust for more than 10 years and knew almost everything of the battle. He had to abandon the war to save his father, Prof. Adam Fenix but when he got to him..he was dead.
This was not supported by his seniors so he was sentenced to 40 years of prison. He was restored to his post and set to fight the locust again due to all the skills he had.
Soon after getting back to his post, Marcus got his honor and respect back. He dedicated himself to fight the locust again and help his friend Dom to achieve his own personal goal.
Dominic was the guy who freed up Marcus from the Jacinto Prison. He then recruited him to the Delta Squad. Dominic is a very positive and a friendly guy. He cracks up random jokes, but for him the war against locust is far more serious.
Augustus was a famous and a stylish thrash ball player. After what happened on the emergence day, he decided to join the Army and serve the man-kind. He teamed up with his friend Damon Baird and both of them started their military careers, one thing is sure that nothing can stop the “Cole Train”
Damon Baird is a tech guy. He believes that if something can cause a problem then he is already one. He doesn’t like to take orders and commands that’s why he is very much into machines which take orders instead.
He also got offended when Marcus Fenix was made the leader of the Delta Squad because he thought it would be him. Damon always wished to have a team of his own which would only work under his commands.
Anya is the information girl. She provides the delta team all the Intel and strategies which are required to overcome and kill the locust. She guides you with her calm and steady voice when you are in the most of trouble. With the help of technology you’re also able to see her live video chat.
Colonel Victor Hoffman
The name explains it all; Colonel Victor wants pure respect, motivation and dedication from all of his soldiers.
He is very strict and sometimes his soldiers don’t like it at all. Hoffman had fought with Marcus due to such reasons but later on he gave him a promotion.
Colonel Victor is totally dependent on Team Delta which can save the humanity and fight against the locusts.
Minh Young Kim
Lt. Kim works under the laws of the book and his leading style is totally dependent on it. He led the mission in whom Marcus Fenix was rescued from the prison. Although he was later on killed by General RAAM!
Dizzy Wallin is greatly confused whether he should stay with his family or serve the mankind. He was also curious about his family because he thought they are in very much of danger without living within the safe gates. He joined the COG military by getting his family a nice and a safe place to spend their lives in.
The wife of Dominic Santiago, she lived a happy life along with her husband and the two children they had. Her life was finished after the emergence day. Both of her children were killed. Dominic was forced to fight against the Locust with more motivation. After sometime Maria went missing with no clue on her present and left Dom to just find her. Dom finds her infected, and had to kill her to get her out of pain. Now, Dom has only one mission!
Taihas a very strong build-up. He is a muscular man who is very spiritual. He fights like a warrior and always considers spiritual ways. His team-mates respect him a lot. Marcus and Tai have saved each other many times. Tai was held hostage by the Locusts and committed suicide to get himself out of the misery.
Prescott – A man who is a born politician. His father and Grandfather were politicians and he had grown up watching them. Now as Prescott was the in charge he had to take some serious decisions to fight the locust which resulted in many controversies against him. The negativity didn’t interfere in Prescott’s behavior and he gave up everything for the survival of the mankind.
Jack is the robot hacker of the delta team. Whenever they need to bypass a computer or a locked door Jack is the one who helps them. Jack is a robot which is also used to grab data from the computers and forward it back to Anya, it’s also used to communicate with her.
Carmine is the youngest and the latest addition to the delta squad. He respects his seniors a lot and wants to become like Marcus and Dom. He believes in honesty and thinks that dying for the team will get him and his family lots of honor like everybody else in the team does. Carmine died in Gears of War 2 under strange circumstances when he fell into the belly of a giant worm. His big brother will replace him in Gears of War 3.
