Sergeant Rhed was a Peacekeeper Special Ops commando and part of Captain Larraq's unit. Along with Larraq and six others, his unit was assigned to track down and capture an intellant virus for study by Peacekeeper scientists.

After a cycle of hunting, and following the loss of four of the squad's members, they managed to capture and subdue the virus' host. On the way to the newly established Gammak Base, however, their Marauder suffered a cesium fuel leak. Fortunately, they encountered what they believed to be a Peacekeeper-controlled Leviathan. Larraq's surviving squad, including Rhed, boarded the Leviathan, Moya, planning to take it over in order to complete their mission. When they found themselves at a disadvantage, they were forced to make a compromise with the Leviathan's "captain".

With the Leviathan on its way to the Gammak Base, Rhed and squadmate Thonn loaded their cargo, the stasis unit with their virus-infected prisoner inside of it, onto the Leviathan. Thinking that whatever was inside the container must be valuable, the Leviathan captain's "servant" Chiana later opened it, unaware of its dangerous contents. When he came upon her, Thonn was inadvertently infected. Rhed arrived and realizing what had happened tried to warn Larraq, but before he could, Thonn shot him dead.


  • (Rhed's last words): "Hey Thonn! The captain's after us! We'd better get down to the ca - (he sees Thonn and the open crate) Holy dren! How did that happen? CAPTAIN! It's Rhed! You'd better get down here-"
