"The name's Mickey. Mickey Baker."

- Mickey introduces himself to York

Pfc. Mickey Baker is the sniper and second-in-command at the Blood Gulch Red Team. He is a minor character in Up Close and Personal. He, like the other members of Red Team are soldiers designed to train members of Project Freelancer in combat.

Role in the Plot

The Death of Jenkins

In a mission against the Blood Gulch Blue Team members of Red Team under Mutton, Pvt. Bud and Pvt. Jenkins carried explosives to a place in the canyon in order to set a trap for their enemies. Bud misunderstood the explosive power of the demo satchels and ended up accidentally blowing up Jenkins.

The Assassination of Lenny

Under orders of Dr. Leonard Church an agent of Project Freelancer, Agent York arrived to help the Red Team with a mission. York was tasked with assassinating a member of the Blue Team named Pvt. Lenny Cheese. Mutton and Bud were tasked with manning the caves. Mickey and Pvt. Sally manned the ridgeline with a sniper rifle in order to identify the target. The mission was interrupted when a Blue squad passed through the caves and were apprehended by the Reds. One of them, Pvt. Jenkins. Meanwhile York managed to kill Cheese and was taken away. Once the Freelancer had gone a massive fight broke out in which Mutton, the rest of the Reds and some of the Blues ended up dead.


Combat Armor

Baker wears Mark V Maroon Armor customised to single him out in the Red Team soldiers.

Personality and Skills

Baker remains a calm character during his appearance in Up Close and Personal. He is extremely loyal and an excellent sniper. However, this doesn't seem to help as he is reported KIA after his mission with York.


Hank Mutton

Mickey's leader on the Red Team is Gyst. Hank Mutton. Mutton is kind and friendly to Mickey, likely because the two have fought together for a decent amount of time.


Old Sally works with Mickey on the ridgeline as a sniper. While Sally cannot physically help in any way he provides companionship and comfort to the soldier.


  • The name Mickey is possibly a reference to the Halo ODST named Mickey Crespo.
