Bullets don’t really have your name on them. They just say ‘To Whom It May Concern.’

Mendoza is one of the hunters in the game Crucible.

Background[edit | edit source]

Captain Roland Bolivar Mendoza has the questionable honor of being the oldest captain in the Unity, a veteran of countless frontier clashes—and clashes with his superior officers. He rose through the ranks to captain multiple times, only to get demoted for insubordination, including one incident where he punched another officer. Did he deserve it? Mendoza hasn’t paid for drinks at the cantina since. After decades in the Corps, Mendoza’s seen everything the frontier has to offer, so Unity top brass assigned him to Crucible after the Colony Zero disaster. Everyone thinks of him as “just another grunt from the Unity,” and Mendoza is content to let others attract the attention for a change. Much of Mendoza’s military record is either classified or sealed by court martial, but if you catch him in a wistful mood late at night, he might reminisce about the security.

Personnel file[edit | edit source]

"Captain Mendoza has a knack for doing things the hard way, and that can be both blessing and curse. On Crucible it’s proving useful so far, and Mendoza has kept his insubordination to a tolerable level.

Ideals like “liberty” and “peace” still motivate Mendoza, even if they’re buried under layers of world-weary cynicism.

Let’s put it this way: Mendoza won’t disobey a direct order, but sometimes his conscience pulls rank."

- Lawrence Tibolt, Commander, Crucible Orbital Station
