Locke was born on March 15, 2529, on Jericho VII. When he was six years old, Jericho VII fell to the Covenant Empire and Locke was evacuated. His parents were killed during the assault. He later joined the UNSC after time as a freelance mercenary and in 2550 he was sent to Crystal to investigate reports of a Forerunner artefact. He was then assigned to Task Force Bravo and was the ONI liaison for the duration of Operation: EUREKA, the Fall of Reach, the events on Installation 04, the Battle of Earth, the Battle of the Ark, and the Mission to Himmelen V.
In September 2552, Locke compiled a target profile report regarding Supreme Commander Thel 'Vadamee's personal history during the war.

Locke shows proficiency in operating several weapons, especially the SRS99 series of sniper rifles, being able to "kneecap an Elite from two kilometers". He shows experience in knife fighting and hand-to-hand combat, successfully engaging Jiralhanae and Sangheili in combat.
Locke is a competent soldier who approaches combat situations with caution and logic and inspires loyalty in those under his command. However, he is troubled by some aspects of the organization he serves under. Additionally, he can sometimes be irrational, and at other times coldly logical, depending on the situation.
