The two met on a warzone at the time Sanders was a marine. Since then they share brotherly relationship off duty. On duty Sanders follows orders to the letter unless there is room for interpretation. Unlike the commander he prefers to paint his aircraft in less intimidating colors.
The two are similar enough to dislike each other on that sole merrit. They usually act as drinking buddies at the local bar and vent on how the "Kids" have taken everything over.
Her young nature and additude toward life annoys sanders however her skills are respected.
The two could careless for one another and only tolerate each other on the battle field. John's dislike is fueled by Tomcats lifestyle of chasing woman and his constant defense of a traitor. Things have softened between them after the discovery of Sarah's innocence but only alittle.
A sparing partner and mentor to Sanders. They spend a majority of their time exercising together.
They respect each other but Odst grievous finds it odd he spends so much time on emotions ,and is relatively unaware as to why he is an emotional wreck.
