Colonel Sherman Barclay is a supporting character in Crysis 2. Alcatraz helps him evacuate the citizens of New York City for a short time.

BackgroundEdit

Barclay was born in New York City and sometime in his life joined the United States Marine Corps. In 2020, he was present during the events at the Lingshan Islands, where he witnessed Major Strickland's death at the hands of the Ceph.

Three years later, he participated in leading the United States forces against the Ceph onslaught in New York City. Personally, Barclay knows very well that most conventional attempts to defeat the enemy at Lingshan were futile, and he fears that his presence in New York was likely to prove equally useless. The lesson of Lingshan were clear – those who fell back in good order mostly managed to survive; those who stood and fought, the aliens rolled over and destroyed. Barclay will simply not allow that to happen to his men or the civilian New Yorkers who have fallen into his care.[1]

Crysis 2Edit

Barclay was given authority over the situation in Manhattan by the US Department of Defense after C.E.L.L. was rescinded of its duty over the city, in which Barclay was in charge of the civilian evacuation, using the subway tunnels beneath Grand Central Terminal, which temporarily serves as his headquarters.

In an argument with Nathan Gould, Barclay orders Gould to leave the city because he is a civilian, despite Gould's objections. Alcatraz and Barclay worked together to help the military and remaining civilians escape Grand Central Station after it comes under attack by the Ceph; he later relocates the evacuation to Times Square.

Eventually, Barclay calls for VTOL support and the Marines and civilians are airlifted out of Times Square. Barclay was later contacted by Gould who requests that Alcatraz to get to Roosevelt Island to rescue Jacob Hargreave, and Barclay reluctantly drops him off there.

Later, Barclay makes radio contact with Alcatraz, Gould, Tara Strickland, and Chino, as they begin pushing their way to Central Park. Barclay informed them that the Pentagon plans on nuking the city unless they stop the aliens in 20 minutes. Alcatraz does so, and Barclay presumably survives the battle.

TriviaEdit

  • It can be assumed that he was on Nomad's VTOL during Exodus in Crysis, as he tells Alcatraz during Crysis 2 that he saw Strickland's death.
  • Barclay is voiced by Gil Martin.
