Because his file is heavily redacted by the Office of Naval Intelligence, much of this Spartan's early history is unknown.
Nadie Castellano, otherwise known as SPARTAN-B318, is one of the 418 candidates claimed in 2537 by ONI’s Beta-5 Division
for training in the SPARTAN-III program, and proved to be one of Beta Company’s most effective Spartan-III assets; his achievements in OPERATION: CARTWHEEL
were noted by both Lieutenant Kurt Ambrose and Senior Chief Petty Officer Franklin Mendez as, “instinctive and smooth.” He was pulled from Beta Company shortly after CARTWHEEL, and assigned to a separate Special Forces Unit: the Headhunters.
Eventually pulled from the Headhunters in 2548, Nadie was re-purposed as a counter-terrorist operator for the Office of Naval Intelligence. In July of 2552, he was transferred to Special Warfare Group THREE
and participated in the Fall of Reach
. During the Siege of New Alexandria, his Spartan team backed an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper unit, callsign Anvil One
, with civilian evacuations, where he reunited with his younger brother, Lieutenant Ezra Castellano. When Reach fell to the Covenant, Nadie was the sole survivor of his Spartan team and officially listed as Missing in Action by his superiors. He then escaped the planet with Anvil One.
For the duration of the Human-Covenant War, Nadie continued to operate with Anvil One whilst under the operational command of ONI Operative "Delta," who was under the direct supervision of ONI themselves. After the war, the Spartan-III was given the opportunity to join the newly formed Spartan Operations, training future SPARTAN-IV Headhunters and later led numerous Spartan Fireteams prior to being assigned to lead Fireteam Crimson in December of 2557, which was now comprised of previous members belonging to Anvil One (personally handpicked for his convenience).
