- — Tebbit, trying to reassure Hoffman that Pad would return to Jacinto City
Guarding the Timgad BridgeEdit
Thirteen years after Emergence Day, Tebbit was guarding a checkpoint at the Timgad Bridge when Col.Victor Hoffman arrived. Tebbit asked him about the Locust air attack on the CIC earlier that day, and Hoffman told him that two civilians were killed and a few buildings were damaged, and that he believed the Locust were just preparing for another winter push. Tebbit agreed with him, and asked what brought him out to the checkpoint. Hoffman told him that he was waiting for Pvt.Padrick Salton, who operated as a long range scout and did not return to Jacinto City often. Tebbit remarked that he sometimes thought that Pad would forget where the city was. Hoffman waited at the checkpoint until nearly midnight for Pad, but he never arrived. Tebbit reassured him that Pad would make it back sometime soon, but Hoffman did not think he would be, since he never usually broke his promises to return at a certain time.
