- "I've lost Jon. Shit, shit, shit."
- — A Gear soldier after losing contact with Jon
Battle of GerranhaltEdit
Following the collapse of the Coalition of Ordered Governments and the evacuation of Vectes, Jon was part of a detachment of Gears that protected the COG refugee settlement at Gerrenhalt. When the town came under attack by Lambent stalks and Polyps, Jon was part of a squad of Gears sent to guard the civilians while the rest of the garrison defended the road leading into town from a wave of Polyps. However, Jon and the other Gears came under attack from more Polyps, and died holding them off as the civilians fled into a warehouse.
