Chronological and political information



Hocus was a Pelican dropship pilot in the UNSC Navy during the Battle of Earth.



Stationed at the UNSC Crow's Nest base, until the facility came under heavy Covenant attack; she was instrumental in evacuating the rest of the survivors of the attack to the Human frigate UNSC Forward Unto Dawn. Hocus was the pilot of Pelican dropship Kilo 023. When flying from Crow's Nest, she assisted in extracting the Master Chief and Sergeant Major Avery Johnson, along with a squad of liberated Marines, from the jungle near Mount Kilimanjaro. Hocus participated in numerous ground insertions during the Battle of Installation 00, including a mission to deactivate the shield barriers surrounding the Ark's Control Room.

It is unknown if Hocus made it through the conflict alive, since the game does not mention her after the level The Covenant. It is most likely that she survived, and has returned to Earth, along with the rest of the remaining Humans and Covenant Separatists stationed over Installation 00.


  • "Imminent, Sergeant. Find some cover. Gotta clear a path." - By COM, to Avery Johnson in the level Sierra 117.
  • "I see 'em! Standby. Going loud. Everyone down!" - To Avery Johnson, when a Covenant Loyalist Phantom appeared, level Sierra 117.
  • "Scratch one Phantom!" - After the first Phantom is destroyed.
  • "Scratch two!" - (Same as above, second one destroyed)
  • "Sierra 117 onboard. Request priority clearance. Over." - Near the end of the level Sierra 117.
  • "What should I do, ma'am?" - To Miranda Keyes in the level Crow's Nest.
  • "Ma'am, I've got movement. Above and below. Brutes. They got jump-packs." - To Miranda Keyes.
  • "She's a little cooked, Sergeant Major. But she'll hold." - To Avery Johnson in the beginning of the level The Ark.
  • "Charlie Foxtrot! Tower One approach has active Triple-A!" - In the beginning of the level The Covenant
  • "Commander, this is Kilo 23. Lost my wingman and our only Hog. Over." - To Miranda Keyes in the level The Covenant.
  • "I got a flock of birds that need an escort. Take a Hornet; get those Pelicans safely to the Third Tower."


  • Hocus has a very similar role of Foe Hammer, a Pelican pilot in Halo: Combat Evolved. Her voice acting is almost identical to the original drop ship pilot's, possibly an indirect reference to the character by Bungie.
  • Using the IWHBYD skull on the level Halo on Halo 3 will cause Johnson to sometimes yell, "I did this for Hocus!" when he gets infected via a glitch on the level, Halo.
  • On the level Crow's Nest, you can see Hocus' face when she picks up the Marines after the Jump Pack Brutes are killed, by jumping on the front of the Pelican. However, she tends to have a different face from time to time, so it is unknown what she really looks like.
  • The character is voiced by Debra Wilson, of MadTV fame.[citation needed]
