1[[foldercontrol]]²²[[folder:Marshall John Dalton]]²[[quoteright:320:]]²[[caption-width-right:320:One wonders if all the TCA spacesuits are that square...]]²--> ''"He was in the Marines once before. They threw him out. Because he thought for himself. They called it "departing from established mission parameters." One time, this colonel ordered him to leave a wounded civilian behind. [[RageAgainstTheMentor He told the colonel to shove it]] and dragged her out anyway. So he was court-martialled. Cashiered. Kicked out. He went on cop duty, patrolling the ass-end of space with the rest of us rejects. You can tell he hasn't changed, though. Pisses the hell out of Aida, but he still wades in with both fists and does what he thinks is right."''²-->-- '''Isaak'''²²-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/MichaelMack²²A former Marine sacked out because of "departing from established mission parameters", he was reassigned to the Terran Colonial Authority Marshall Patrol force, which he [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits shares]] with [[LittleMissSnarker Aida]], [[MrFixit Isaak]] and [[StarfishAliens Ne'Ban]]. All of them follow orders from [[DrillSergeantNasty Sector Commander Hawkins]].²²In ''Unreal II'', he's offered his reinstatement into the Marines corps by following a risky mission where he must [[GottaCatchEmAll collect several pieces]] [[MacGuffinDeliveryService of an unknown artifact]].²[[hardline]]²Tropes related to him:²²* TheCaptain: Commands his own crew.²* DeadpanSnarker: Several instances. It's his own way to cope out with the problems he faces.²** After swimming through a bloodpool in a sewer during the Sanctuary mission:²--> '''Dalton''': ''You know how they say that blood is thicker than water? Its true.''²** Exploring the laboratories in a frozen research center on a moon called "Hell":²-->'''Aida:''' ''...go to hell, Dalton.''²-->'''Dalton:''' ''Already there, toots!''²** On the same level, when Aida tells him that the spider creatures he faces on the planet aren't native to the planet.²--> '''Dalton:''' ''Great. I'm fighting giant, killer ''Mutant'' spiders.''²** After [[InsufferableGenius Dr. Meyer]] remarks they should have sent in marines during the Janus mission:²--> '''Dalton:''' ''They're few! They're proud! '''AND THEY AIN'T HERE!'''''²--> '''Scientist:''' ''...stupid Jarhead...''²--> '''Dalton:''' ''I heard that. And it's MARSHAL Stupid jarhead TO YOU!!''²* IdiotBall: [[spoiler:If he had listened to Aida, he would have prevented the Tosc from evolving into {{Eldritch Abomination}}s and also saved his own crew]].²* PoweredArmor: The XA/F armor allows Dalton to breathe underwater without risk of drowning, has rechargeable shields, and can scan for important objects or people.²* TragicKeepsake: [[spoiler:Keeps Aida's "Grace" pistol with him, and even uses it to execute Hawkins when all's said and done]].²* VitriolicBestBuds: As Isaak mentions, he gets into several exchanges with Aida, but they do care about each other. [[spoiler:Which makes the moment of the TCA Atlantis' blast and obliteration of his crew a very painful moment for him]].²* YesMan: Subverted. If he thinks someone is in need of help, he will even defy orders in order to save them. It's how he got kicked from the marine corps. In the game proper, he refuses to execute a scientist that [[HeKnowsTooMuch knows too much about the artifacts]], instead leading him to safety in exchange for the artifacts.²[[/folder]]²²!! Dalton's crew²[[folder:Aida]]²[[quoteright:300:]]²[[caption-width-right:300:Hot damn...]]²²-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/JacquelineUnderwood²²-> ''"Aida was a child prodigy, a strategic genius. An international 3D-chess-master by the age of ten, and drafted by the Terran Military before she was out of braces. About ten years ago, at the height of the Strider Wars, things were going badly for us. We were outnumbered and outgunned. It seemed only a matter of time before we'd be wiped out. Aida turned it all around. On an out-of-the-way planet called Taiko, she created a sort of electronic Potemkin village -- a massive underground complex of transmitters and antennas. She made it seem as if the Terran military had concentrated their headquarters and most of their forces there. The Striders went for it. They landed in full force, right above the transmitters. Our ships had been hiding behind Taiko's moon. They came out and nuked the planet into oblivion. But it had a price. Taiko had hundreds of Terran colonists - innocents who couldn't be warned of Aida's plan. When she activated the transmitters, she signed their death warrant. But because they died, millions lived. She knows that. She made the choice, but she's never forgiven herself. As she grew older, she rebelled. She thinks the military made her a monster, and now she doesn't trust 'em -- or anyone else."''²-->-- '''John Dalton'''²²[[hardline]]²Tropes related to her:²* ActionGirl: Averted. She was one, before the events of the game. She's on MissionControl now, aboard the TCA Atlantis.²* TheAtoner: She was responsible for the death of hundreds during the Strider Wars, and thinks the authorities made her a monster. He works with John to atone for this.²* BareYourMidriff: Has a Spycatsuit set with the mid section discovered.²* CompanionCube: Her pistol, Grace. She gives it to John. Even Isaak is surprised she's willing to give it to John.²* FingerlessGloves: Carries one on her right hand.²* ICallItVera: Her pistol is called Grace.²* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Despite having done the impossible by turning a seemingly HopelessWar, she still felt bad for killing hundreds of innocents, and thinks the government made her a monster.²* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Perished alongside Isaak and Ne'Ban while being chased by Hawkins' flagship]].²* {{Stripperiffic}}: She wears a uniform that consists of a black spandex bikini. It's actually a very jarring contrast to her ''actual character'', a bitter cynic with a deep, husky voice that sounds like a younger version of [[TheSimpsons Lunch Lady Doris]].²* SurvivorsGuilt: Isn't exactly proud of what she had to do in order to end the Strider Wars and save the humanity.²* TragicKeepsake: A three-eyed bear doll with one of the eyes ripped off, and the Taiko inscription on it.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Isaak]]²[[quoteright:328:]]²[[caption-width-right:328:[[VideoGame/{{Starcraft}} Greetings, command!]]]]²-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/JeffBaker²²-> ''"Years ago, Isaak and Aida served on a Terran Capital ship together. He was the launch officer. During a fight with the Skaarj, the ship took a series of hits. He was wounded, got trapped in his compartment, and he panicked.\²A fighter crew was getting ready to launch. He opened the airlock too soon and they were sucked into space. After that, he just curled up on the floor. They had to break in to launch the other fighters. Aida calls it dereliction of duty. They beat off the Skaarj, but her friends were dead and Isaak never recovered.\²He got a medical discharge and dived right into a bottle. Now he's back trying to prove himself, and he doesn't know if he has what it takes."''²-->-- John Dalton²²An ex-naval officer in charge of the flight deck on a [[TheBattlestar space-carrier]], Isaak screwed up big time during a major fleet engagement; he panicked and locked up due to fear, depressurizing a portion of the flight deck before the pilots were ready to launch, and sealed himself in the control cabin. He was courtmartialed as a result.²²[[hardline]]²Tropes related to him:²²* TheAlcoholic[=/=]DrowningMySorrows: After accidentally killing three, he became a booze addict in order to cope with the guilt. Aida tries to use this to get John to eject him from the ship.²* TheEngineer: Is in charge of maintaining the TCA Atlantis and John's arsenal.²* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Perished alongside Aida and Ne'Ban while being chased by Hawkins' flagship]].²%%* MrFixit²* OffTheWagon: Averted. He was once deep into the bottle, and manages to hold throughout the series - despite, as the main character points out, having numerous opportunities to smuggle in some booze. ²* SurvivorsGuilt: Feels quite the guilt for accidentally killing three of Aida's best friends.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Ne'Ban]]²[[quoteright:330:]]²[[caption-width-right:330:"I am here, riding your ship."]]²-> ''"When you return to your ship, you'll have a new pilot. He's a Hex-Core alien named Ne'Ban. We got him in an officer exchange program. He's some kind of muckety-muck on his home planet and the brass want him kept away out of harm's way. You've got the quietest patrol, so you're it."''²-->-- '''Sector Commander Hawkins'''²²-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/GrantRoberts²²[[hardline]]²Tropes related to him:²²%%* TheAce²* [[AliensSpeakingEnglish Aliens Speaking]] {{Engrish}}: He can speak english words, but still had to understand contexts and meanings.²* EloquentInMyNativeTongue: Apparently, he mixes up words because he learned over fifty languages.²* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Perished alongside Aida and Isaak while being chased by Hawkins' flagship]].²%%* NonHumanSidekick²* RebelliousPrincess: As he states, he is a member of a very ''large'' royal family. He lied about this for fear of being treated as special, wanting to see the world and do something meaningful with his life.²* StarfishAliens: He's some sort of glowing, jelly-like... thingy that wears a humanoid robotic suit to operate in human environments. WordOfGod states that Ne'ban's species are intelligent parasites that use the glowing, jelly-like thingies as host bodies.²* TokenNonHuman: The only non-human member of Dalton's crew.²[[/folder]]²²!! Terran Colonial Authority²[[folder:Sector Commander Hawkins - SPOILERS]]²[[quoteright:256:]]²[[caption-width-right:256:Don't let that "good man" face fool you.]]²²-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/MichaelKramer²²[[hardline]]²Tropes related to him:²²%%* BaldOfEvil²* BigBad: While the other villainous factions would have probably sought out the artifacts anyway, Hawkins is the one who tricks Dalton into collecting them, creating the entire adventure, and as a result ends up successfully assembling them.²* CutsceneBoss: Dalton executes him in person near the end of the game in a cutscene.²* MakeItLookLikeAnAccident: The first half of the recovered burst transmission reveals that he prepares YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness in time with the Skaarj invasion to make it look like the Skaarj shot down your spaceship along with your crew.²* MissionControl: He directs the team throughout the game.²* OmnicidalManiac: Aside of sending the ship towards the sun in the ending, almost every death and mess can be traced back to him.²* TakingYouWithMe: He directed the ship [[HurlItIntoTheSun to the nearest star]] in hopes to finish "the Tosc menace". He was planning to escape in a lifepod before the ship was actually caught in the star's gravity well, but didn't seem to give much thought as to the rest of the crew.²* TeamDad: Subverted. He comes across as a ReasonableAuthorityFigure for most of the game, but turns out to be a TreacherousQuestGiver.²%%* TreacherousAdvisor²* WalkingSpoiler: He's introduced as a TeamDad, and during most of the game he passes as such. Then come the final missions, where he was the one behind all of the game's events.²* WeCanRuleTogether: Tries to convince Dalton that they can use the Tosc to rule the universe. It doesn't work.²* VillainousUnderdog: Hawkins is basically a Space Coast Guard captain, whose resources are limited to a few dozen soldiers and one command ship. He has to take a long shot gamble and trick Dalton into assembling the artifacts because competing factions like the Mega-Corps, the Skaarj, and the Draak all completely outgun him otherwise.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Raff]]²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Marines]]²* AlwaysMale: There are no female marines.²* UndergroundMonkey: Like most entities in the game, they come in Light, Medium and Heavy subclasses. Light classes have 75 HP and carry the Dispersion Pistol or the Assault Rifle, Medium classes have 110 HP and carry Magnum Pistols (like Grace) or Shotguns, and Heavy classes have 300 HP and carry the Flamethrower or the Rocket Launcher.²[[/folder]]²²!! Axon Research Corporation²[[folder:Dr. Meyer]]²* InsufferableGenius: During the Exterior part of the Janus mission, he pisses the hell off of Dalton.²* {{Jerkass}}²[[/folder]]²²!! Izanagi Corporation²[[folder:Ghost Warriors]]²* AlwaysMale: There are no female ghost warriors in ''Unreal II''. ''VideoGame/UnrealTournamentIII'' introduced the Ronin, which do allow female warriors on their ranks.²* UndergroundMonkey: Like most entities in the game, they come in Light, Medium and Heavy subclasses. Light classes have 75 HP and carry the Dispersion Pistol or the Assault Rifle, Medium classes have 105 HP and carry Magnum Pistols (like Grace) or Shotguns, and Heavy classes have 300 HP and carry the Flamethrower or the Rocket Launcher.²[[/folder]]²²!! Liandri Mining Corporation²[[folder:Danny Miller]]²A young operator which holds the first artifact during the Sanctuary mission. He sent the distress call for someone who wished to help him get to safety.²²* KilledOffForReal: Found his end after falling to the bottom of the generator with the artifact after being threatened by a Heavy Skaarj and his Izarian slave.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Liandri Angels]]²* AlwaysFemale: There are no male angels in ''Unreal II''.²* {{Cyborg}}: Isaak describes them as "genetically enhanced" warriors.²* UndergroundMonkey: Like most entities in the game, they come in Light, Medium and Heavy subclasses. Light classes have 75 HP and carry the Dispersion Pistol, Medium classes have 100 HP and carry Magnum Pistols (like Grace) or Shotguns, and Heavy classes have 300 HP and carry the Flamethrower or the Rocket Launcher.²[[/folder]]²²!! Races²[[folder:Izarians]]²* {{Expy}}: Of the Krall from the first ''Unreal''.²* KillerSpaceMonkey: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in-game:²--> '''Miller''': ''Get away from the camera you space monkey freaks!''²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Skaarj]]²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Araknids]]²* GiantSpider: All of them. Even the smallest ones are bigger than the average spider.²* TouchedByVorlons: The larger spiders aren't a naturally occurring species, but rather mutants created by experiments with the energy produced by the artifacts. This is an early hint as to the true purpose of the artifacts.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Drakk]]²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Other]]²[[/folder]]²----
