"Ah who needs the Light when you've got a fine feathered friend by your side!"
— Cayde-6 commenting on Colonel's successful distraction.

Colonel was once an ordinary chicken stationed at The Farm until Cayde found her and named her Colonel. Colonel was vital to Cayde's team as she was able to distract the Cabal long enough for Cayde to sneak up upon them and proceed to assassinate them. Colonel managed to survive the liberation of the Last City and was returned to the Farm. Later during The Dawning 2017, Cayde gave her a cape and a horn to make her more like him and he often visited the Farm during his spare time to talk to, feed, and pet Colonel along with the other chicken residents of the farm until his unfortunate assassination by the hands of Uldren Sov. After this event, Colonel was relocated to the new Tower where Cayde used to be positioned. While repairing the Ace of Spades, The Guardian comes across a message meant for Suraya Hawthorne in the (extremely unlikely) event that she does kill Cayde, she would gain ownership of Colonel.

Trivia[edit]

  • Colonel is paid homage by the emote "Poultry Petting" in Forsaken, where the player creates a red projection of a chicken and pets it in a similar way to how Cayde-6 pets Colonel during the opening cinematic of the campaign mission Chosen.
  • According to Cayde in the Ace in the Hole mission, she eats only sesame seed muesli, and drinks spring water with a sprig of parsley.
  • The chicken's name might be a subtle reference to either the founder and mascot of the restaurant chain KFC, or a certain line from the satirical science fiction film Spaceballs.
