Role in PlotEdit
Biff was a high school friend of Temple's and grew a relationship with a classmate named Georgina. After high school, Biff enlisted into the UNSC alongside Temple, though still kept in contact with Georgina as their relationship grew more serious. Unfortunately, Biff and Temple were split between the Red and Blue simulation trooper armies of Project Freelancer and were stationed on opposite sides of a desert canyon on Armada 8, with Biff on the Red Team and Temple on the Blue Team. Despite this, the two remained friends and kept in contact.
During a shore-leave, Biff went AWOL and snuck back to Earth to see Georgina. Upon returning, Biff and Temple conspired to have him shot in the pinkie finger in front of witnesses so he could be medically discharged and go home, in hopes to be with Georgina for good. While reluctant, Temple agrees to help him.
