Gunnery Sergeant (Gyst.) Edward Simon does not make an appearance in Red vs. Blue: The Freelancer Archives, however he is a significant character in Up Close and Personal. He, like other members of Red Team are soldiers designed to train members of Project Freelancer in live-fire training exercises.

Role in the Plot

The Freelancer Coup

Two members of Project Freelancer, Agents Utah and Alaska were assigned to the Red Team in order to help them steal the Blue Team's flag. However, the mission had fallen sideways and Simon had died. Despite Alaska's orders to stay in cover he left and was run over by a warthog. This resulted in a temporary alliance between both the Reds and the Blues in order to kill both of the Freelancers.

Appearance

Red Combat Armor

Simon presumably had fully equipped Red Team Mark V standard Armor.

Personality and Skills

It is heavily implied that Simon was much loved, possibly even by his enemies in the Blue Team. His death united both of the factions in an all-out war against the Freelancers.
