Chronological and political information

James Dominic Fenix, often called "JD" by his squadmates, was a former Gear soldier and the son of the legendary Marcus Fenix and Anya Stroud. He met Delmont Walker in boarding school in one of the restored Coalition of Ordered Governments' walled city-states during the post-Locust War era, and together they joined the COG militia. A classified incident caused JD and Del to go AWOL and seek refuge among the Outsiders; he later befriended Outsider Kait Diaz.[2]


JD was the son of war heroes Marcus Fenix and Anya Stroud. He was born after the end of the Locust War, growing up in the walled city states of the restored Coalition. He met his childhood friend Delmont Walker in a boarding school. Later, JD and Del would join the militia.[2]

A young JD Fenix grew up on his father's homestead where he watched him plant a tree with his initials onto it.[3] He grew up with his best friend Delmont Walker who was an orphan. JD would grow up into an idealistic young man who would later run away from home, much to Marcus' displeasure, and join the restored COG's militia,[2] eventually reaching the rank of Lieutenant.[1]

COG militia Edit

JD, along with his best friend Del, would join the COG's militia but on a classified mission they would both go AWOL.

AWOL and OutsiderEdit

After the "incident", JD and Del would join up with an Outsiders community and befriend Kait Diaz.

Personality and TraitsEdit

Unlike his father, JD Fenix was an idealist who wanted to live his life with a purpose.[4]
