"You killed my father. Now I'm going to avenge him."
―Benjamin Nishurd encountering his father's killer, Grono 'Yendam.
Benjamin Nishurd is a Spartan-IV born on the outer colony Carchar. He was born on October 31, 2530 a few years after the Human-Covenant War began. Although classified as an outer colony, Carchar was quite large and made profit off mining it's many resources. Due to this, the Covenant did not find it until 2547, but deployed a Legion to attack the capital. Ben's father Warren, who was in the militia went to battle, but was subsequently killed by the Sangheili Minor Grono 'Yendam. Ben barely escaped Carchar with his mother onboard a rescue frigate, and he vowed to avenge his father.
Ben joined the UNSC, and was eventually given the chance to become a Spartan. He did so, but after his whole fireteam died, he primarily worked as ONI "Muscle". In 2559, Ben was paired with Spartan-III Headhunter Bethany-A204, to hunt down Grono who had recently assassinated an influential UNSC military leader Vice Admiral Vocerif. He is currently working with Bethany.
Benjamin Nishurd was born on the outer colony Carchar in 2530, to parents Warren and Jennifer Nishurd. He lived with his parents in a decent sized house in a small neighborhood. They lived close to many relatives, although they never visited Benjamin's estranged grandfather. Ben had a normal childhood, going to a local elementary school and receiving good grades. His father Warren was a Corporal in the local militia while Jennifer was a federal worker. Benjamin loved learning about the military, and as such, Warren bought him a toy dart gun to play with when he was young.
