The Storm Edit

Saunders is first mentioned by Roux. She states that she has a strong relationship with someone called Kirk Bancroft.

Defense Edit

Later, Roux plays a record of a call between Saunders and Jonathan Taylor, in which Taylor asks for "the money" and makes a new appointment on a construction site in Tokyo. Phoenix snipes Jonathan Taylor.

Death Edit

Warning: spoiler below. Move cursor to read the text.
In the last mission Saunders, Saunders pilots an Apache, chasing down Caydan Phoenix and Isaac Tukura, who both are headed towards extraction on the rooftop of Gilman Security Headquarters. As the pilot of the plane about to extract Phoenix and Tukura scares Saunders away, they head for the helipad. Saunders swoops back, and with a couple of air-to-air missiles he takes down the helicopter preparing to extract Phoenix and Tukura, killing the pilot of the plane trying to extract Phoenix. As Saunders passes for another shot, Phoenix shoots his Hawk-13, striking the windshield. Saunders' helicopter crashes onto the helipad, bursting into flames. Saunders climbs out of the burning wreck, still alive and conscious. Saunders pulls out a pistol, ready to shoot Phoenix, but Phoenix shoves it out of his hands. After Saunders pulls out his knife and attempts to stab Phoenix, Phoenix stabs Saunders in the neck, killing him with his own knife.
