     Call of Duty Classic and United Offensive 

Private Joey Martin

  • Early-Installment Weirdness: Unlike the heroic mimes from most of the other games, we know Martin's thoughts through his journal entries at the beginning of each mission. Oddly enough, this leaves him with more characterization than many future protagonists in the series.
  • Elites Are More Glamorous: Part of the famous 101st Airborne Division.
  • Heroic Mime
  • Player Character: The first in the series!

Sergeant Jack Evans

Sergeant Waters

  • Badass: Under heavy fire, he runs to manually set off a bridge explosion when it fails to go off. You have to cover him with sniper fire.
  • Elites Are More Glamorous: He is the axillary soldier involved with Evans and Price's covert operations. He plays a supporting role while Price and/or Evans goes into the enemy's territory.

Sergeant James Doyle

Sergeant Alexei Ivanovich Voronin

Captain Foley

Sergeant Moody

  • Badass
  • Deadpan Snarker
    Oh yes, sir, you bet! We ride through enemy lines in a French tin can! Want me to paint a bullseye on it, sir?
    • Also:
      Pvt. Elder: I can't believe I volunteered to do this!
      Sgt. Moody: *matter-of-factly* You didn't, remember? You were volunteered.
  • Elites Are More Glamorous
  • Indy Ploy: Oh yes. While driving through a German convoy.
    Pvt. Elder: What the hell are you doing Sarge?!
    Sgt. Moody: *quietly* I don't know, I sure hope it works.
  • Sergeant Rock: The first in a long series of them.
  • Pun: Sgt. Moody is moody.

Private Elder

  • Deadpan Snarker: When Moody gets the car stuck in a dead end and destroys the car, Elder is not amused. Moody doesn't want to hear it.
    Elder: Oh. hey great, good move! Remind me to thank the captain.
    Sgt. Moody: Shut up Elder, and get your ass out! Let's go Martin, move it, move!
  • Elites Are More Glamorous
  • Killed Off for Real: Can be killed in Brecourt Manor.
    • What Happened to the Mouse?: Not mentioned again if he survived. It's possible given his attitude and acoomplishments that he was promoted and transferred to another squad. It's just as likely he was killed or wounded and taken out of combat. Lastly, it's possible that Pvt. Elder was one of the men separated from his squad. Captain Foley describes in a slide show that the 101st formed mixed groups and Elder could have just been pulled along for the ride by Moody.
