- "German, she is, how you say? Native language. English secondary. What? Ach, ja, das Unit name... Ich-- Apologies. I am a large soccer fanatic. Die weltweit beliebteste Spiel, ja? The boys, they think this funny, so they name Unit "Hooligans" after me. I like it, tatsächlich."
- ―Captain Reiko Hansek, remarking about the 20th's callsign.
The 20th Shock Trooper Special Operations Company "Charlie" of the 10th Shock Troops Battalion was originally formed at the beginning of the its parent unit's existence, in 2521. It went through several incarnations, along with its other two sister companies before reaching its current state in 2570. Its operational history includes some of the most remarkable engagements of Human history, such as the Defense of Manheim, the First Battle for Earth, the Defense of Kanna, and the containment of the Liberty Rebellion with SPARTAN-091. After surviving the Human-Covenant War with only a 45% casualty rate, the 20th ShoTSOC received new recruits before the onset of the Remnant-Monolith conflict. On one op in that campaign, Charlie's new members were thrown into the jaws of the Brute forces, where they took significant casualties. After that conflict, they operated with their parent unit, the 10th on further deployments throughout the Orion Arm. As of 2570, they are still active, despite having the significantly increased personnel attrition rate of 30 percent.
