Because his file is heavily redacted by the Office of Naval Intelligence, much of this Spartan's early history is unknown.

Jake Bermudez, 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, as he outshone his teammates —something common among SPARTAN-IIIs, and assigned to a separate Special Forces Unit: the Headhunters.

Eventually pulled from the Headhunters, Jake was repurposed 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 Seige of New Alexandria, his Spartan team backed an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper fireteam — Anvil One — with civilian evacuations, where he was reunited with his younger brother. When Reach fell to the Covenant, Jake 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, Jake 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, he 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.

After the Requiem Campaign, Jake began testing out numerous GEN-2 MJOLNIR Armor variants, such as Watershed's Hunter Armor and Mark VII prototypes [Decimator]. Today, he continues to sport the Decimator Helmet and frequently changes his armor suit to what may best fit his team's current assignment.

Company Lore and Backstory

Fireteam Crimson is an elite team of Spartan super soldiers led by “B-318” – a former Spartan-III Beta Company member. They were assigned to the UNSC Infinity during the Requiem Campaign of February 2558, with four Spartans operating in ground based missions. They are effectively one of the best Spartan Fireteams on the Infinity, and continues to grow as a team ever since Requiem. As of March of 2558, Fireteam Crimson continue to operate in top-secret missions, such as participating in joint operations with Sword of Sangheilios strike teams against Jul ’Mdama’s Covenant.

In May of 2558, the team of Spartans began to participate in numerous counterinsurgency operations across United Earth Government Space. Their most recent assignment was the retrieval of an unnamed Spartan VIP and ONI personnel from the custody of Insurrectionists in Ethiopia. Because of the classified nature of this mission, Fireteam Crimson were backed by a Spec Ops Sangheili team led by Savra Refumee. The mission was a success without any friendly casualties.

Fireteam Crimson is currently onboard the UNSC Infinity.
