Specialist Ahmed Salazar (COG tags CSID 3048HG-N03V5-GF) was a Gear who fought during the Locust War and Lambent Pandemic. Joining in 2 A.E., Salazar quickly proved himself as a gifted marksman, earning the rank of Specialist upon graduation, where he was assigned to Gamma-Eighty Eight. He stayed there until 4 A.E., when most of the squad was killed during the Siege of Oqrarc. After this, he was placed in Hotel-One, whose previous sniper, Saveli Popov, had been reassigned. Save for a brief few months in late 4 A.E., where he had been assigned on a special mission, he served in the squad throughout the rest of the war and the Lambent Pandemic that followed.
