Throughout the series the number of surviving characters has grown somewhat short with the first level of Road To Hill 30 having many soldiers and the ending scene of Hell's Highway only having a few remaining soldiers.
Cassidy was only seen in Earned In Blood and always sent 2nd squad on different missions to do and didn't play an especially big role even in that game but he had survived as he is in the end of Earned In Blood and is not seen in the other games.
McCreary is a member of 3rd squad. He barely gets any lines in Road To Hill 30 and is only seen briefly in Earned In Blood but in Hell's Highway he plays a bigger role and is especially careful of the germans and is very protective of himself, most likely being the reason he's still one of the surviving characters.
He is never seen in Road To Hill 30 but plays a decent role in Earned In Blood as a big part of 2nd squad and is Paige's only friend. He is good friends with just about everybody in 2nd squad and when he hears Paige has been killed he keeps a low profile and is so unnoticed he is not even seen in Hell's Highway but mentioned in the level Tooth And Nail meaning he has survived Operation Market Garden.
He is never seen or heard in any of the BIA games but he is mentioned a few times and is in command of the allies and is one of the never seen surviving characters.
Paddock is a very tough as nails guy and is never heard or seen in Road To Hill 30 but plays a huge roll in Earned In Blood as Paddock and Doyle are Hartsock's main men in 2nd squad. Then when Doyle is killed and later in Hell's Highway Hartsock is paralyzed Paddock must take over 2nd squad. He has lots of lines in the 2nd and 3rd Brothers In Arms games and is in charge of 2nd squad now.
Jasper is one of the new recruits and joins 3rd squad after Operation Overlord and goes into Holland with them. He only talks when they first meet Nicholaas his other lines are very short except when he talks with Roseli. His best friend is Connor and he survives Hell's Highway.
Gideon is the medic that is first seen sitting against the truck holding Cole's dead body. He is very upset about Robert Cole's death and is even more upset talking to Baker telling him that Hartsock is paralyzed. He was seen in the last cut scene of Hell's Highway and had survived.
Hassay is seen is all three BIA games. He plays a huge roll in Road To Hill 30 as he tells Baker his mission and Baker would order his men around. Hassay is the most talented one there as he's served in D-Day, Op Market Garden and even World War I as a good friend to Baker's father. In Earned In Blood he is only seen in one mission where he is shot and wounded in the chest. In Hell's Highway he is never seen in action just at cut scenes with Baker although he tells a story of how Robert Cole died.
Redwood is the tank commander that the player can take control of every once in awhile in Hell's Highway. At the end of the level Hell's Highway he is the one that blows up all the other tanks and is never wounded once. He has an Irish accent and is part of 30 Corps.
Courtland is the only one that's nice to LaRoche all the time in Hell's Highway and plays a fairly large roll and is always loyal to Baker throughout the game. In Road To Hill 30 he is McCreary's best friend but in Hell's Highway McCreary is always walking around with Zanovich. He is barely seen in Earned In Blood.
He is not seen in RTH30 but is seen alot in Earned In Blood and is good friends with Doyle and Marsh. When Doyle dies with Paige he is as upset as Red is. He does not get that many lines in Hell's Highway and is the only one to see Marsh die. He is extremely upset about that. He dislikes Paddock and the mortar bomb that hurts Baker, paralyzes Hartsock, kills Friar also makes him loose his voice. It is unknown if this is the end of his story or if he will be in the next BIA game.
Roseli is only seen in Hell's Highway as a replacement for Red's 2nd squad. He is merely just one of the soldiers in the squad and only talks when he has a small little chat with Jasper.
Joseph "Red" HartsockEdit
Hartsock is a huge roll in all 3 games in Road To Hill 30 he leads the Fire Team but at the end of the game the entire fire team is killed except for him and Zanovich. He is promoted to 2nd Squad and Zanovich is the only member of the fire Team in hell's highway that fought at D-Day. Hartsock is paralyzed at the end of Hell's Highway and is being sent home but has survived his wounds.
Baker is the main character in the first and 3rd Brothers In Arms games. In Road To Hill 30 he is sad and upset by the deaths of all his men and all the soldiers. At the end he is promoted to Sergeant. In Earned In Blood he only plays a big role in the level Three Patrol Action then in Hell's Highway he is being haunted by the ghosts of his killed men and starts to go a little crazy.
Mike Dawson is the only replacement in Baker's squad that fought in D-Day which is unusual. He is good friends with Nathan Holden and it is said that somewhere in the timeline between Earned In Blood and Road To Hill 30 he talked to Legget and found out what happened to Allen & Garnett.
Although Marshall is never seen in the war just interviewing Hartsock he plays a somewhat big role in Earned In Blood asking Hartsock all about his journey from D-Day, Purple Heart Lane, Hill 30 and more.
Corrion plays a big role in the 1st and 3rd games. He leads Assault Team in RTH30 and is great friends with Baker and is the only one who stands up for Legget when Allen & Garnett are killed. In Hell's Highway he is shot trying to defend people in other jeeps even after Baker turned him down for promotion, so that went ontop of his past anger making him hate Baker although after Baker's speech he wasn't angry with him but still seemed to dislike him for what he'd done. It is unknown if he'll be in BIA4.
Zanovich plays a small role in RTH30 being the only survivor of the original Fire Team (hartsock was promoted) but in Hell's Highway he is McCreary's best friend but in RTH30 McCreary's best friend is in fact Courtland.
he plays a small role in BIA3 as one of the new recruits and only has some lines at the begginning of the game.
