"Alright everybody, It looks like Humanity is in the shit again. It's time to finish what our grandparents did and put an end to these apes and their little playmates too."
—Nuke to 17th Delta; December 2634
Gunnery Sergeant James C. "Nuke" Spellman is a non-commisioned officer of the 17th Shock Trooper Battalion in the UGA Orion Guard and leader of 17th Delta Squad.
A soldier with quiet anger, Nuke has been through battles that would drive average men insane. His younger brother was carried off by Yanme'e Drones and was found dead soon after. James used it as motivation to make it through the war and kill as many Imperial troops as he could. He leads a squad with great care for their lives, often putting himself in danger so that they survive. His weapon of choice is the MA5D.
Early Life and Military Career
Nuke was born in 2607 on Mars. He was a star athlete for a short time until a leg injury ended his career. He later became a miner but felt unfulfilled by the job. He enlisted on November 3rd, 2625 alongside his younger brother and eventually rose to the rank of Staff Sergeant. Soon after reaching the rank, he was sent to deal with Kig-Yar raiders in the outer rim during the Scattered Uprisings. His brother was shipped out with him too. James saved his brother from a pack of ravenous Kig-Yar and rallied to push the enemy back. This would be his last time protecting his brother as months later, he received news that his brother was killed by Yanme'e raiders on another colony. This forever scarred Nuke and would motivate him to avenge his brothers death. He later rose to the rank of Gunnery Sergeant and would lead a squad of capable marines. In his squad, he has grown attached to Alex Edwards because he is similar to his brother.
