"Greek mythology tells us that the Gods invented woman as a punishment after man got a hold of some stolen goods. Obviously, this was just the mythological explanation given by the primitive early men to explain the real origin of women, which was this: THEY CAME DOWN IN SPACESHIPS. Yes, all women are space aliens who have come from a far-off galaxy to enslave mankind."
―Ben, explaining in detail to his comrades why he can't get a date.
Ben "Yahtzee" Crenshaw was an ODST non-commissioned officer in the 18th ShoTSOC of the 10th Shock Troops Battalion. Though he is significantly older than most of his superiors, his low-ranking position is immediately explained by his biting sense of sarcastic humor and anti-authority streak. He often gets on the nerves of many of his mates who have low tolerance for this sort of thing. He always has his Trilby hat with him, either in his pack when his helmet is on, or on his head when his helmet is off.
