Theodore Pierce a.k.a. Agent X20991N is a Terran Dominion ghost who formerly worked for the Terran Confederacy (where he was known as Agent 25732). He has a psi index of 6, and scores high in both resocialization and compliance. Pierce possesses telepathic and psychometric abilities. Because of his proficiency in the latter, the Dominion recommended that all sensitive material be removed prior to briefings.[1]


Early ServiceEdit

Pierce graduated from the Confederate Ghost Academy in 2491, and spent nine years running special operations missions. His records of Confederate service were lost after the fall of the Confederacy.

In 2500, he underwent neural resocialization to serve in the newly formed Terran Dominion, and he entered active service later that year. Ghost Academy staff noted he displayed no allegiance to the former state. In spite of his advancing age, Pierce's physical and mental aptitude tests placed him in the 90th percentile.

Covert OpsEdit

Years after the End War, Pierce was listed as part of an operation to infiltrate a Defenders of Man base and gather intelligence along with Nova Terra, Stone and Delta Emblock. The squad went missing shortly afterward. His profile was found in a secure Defenders of Man database.[1]

Months later, after Nova broke out of a Defenders of Man base in Sharpsburg, she rescued Pierce, who expressed confusion that the soldiers holding them weren't Dominion. The group broke out of the base on vultures, with Pierce and Emblock splitting from Nova and Stone to better their chances of escape. Nova escaped the planet, but did not receive contact from the rest of her squad.[2]

Pierce, Stone and Emblock did not report back to the Dominion after Nova's escape.[3]

Pierce was later discovered alongside Emblock in a holding pen when Nova infiltrated Carolina Davis's compound on Vardona, having had his memories replaced. Reigel stated that he would send an extraction team for the two of them.[4]

List of OperationsEdit


It's possible for Pierce to be killed during the escape from the Defenders of Man facility. If so, Nova's dialogue would be different once she reaches Stone.
