Major or not-so-commonly known as; Major Susan Wayland, appears and is a playable character in Quake 3 Arena. She is an enemy warrior in Tier 6 in the singleplayer mode of Quake 3 Arena.

She's one of the most dangerous and challenging gladiators; she's simply dreadful at high difficulties. She can use Rocket Launcher and Machine Gun very effectively, has above average Railgun accuracy and jumping characteristics.

If she's using Machine Gun from afar, you better take cover or do sharp turns and fight back to make her lose your sight. When she's newly respawned she can hunt anyone down on an open area from very far distances with sheer accuracy. Like an awoken tiger she wrecks everything on her path until she gets her hands on another weapon.

If not the best, her second best weapon is Rocket Launcher, no doubt; she can land air rockets pretty often if you dare to face her in the mid-air.

At lower difficulties she's slow and even have crouching characteristics more than jumping. When player takes on her at the highest difficulty things take a rapid turn. She has one of the fastest reaction times in game, let alone the swift turning speed. When these coupled with her accuracy at high difficulties, Major herself alone stands as a quite challenge to the player.

At the chat lines she generally get mentioned as "Boss Lady", "Cyclops", "Ms.Major, Sir", "Major Witch" and "Iron-Thighs". They're all well-earned nicknames, Major has a great awareness and prediction to hunt down her prey from afar with grace and that is a respected skill in the Arena Eternal.

Quake III biographyEdit

A veteran of the Stroggos campaign, Major Wayland is haunted by the memories of her fallen troops and the parasites that killed them. It may be that she believes she's still fighting that long-concluded war.

Crisp, authoritative and professional. She is a near-humorless, no-nonsense military officer. Wearing battle scars that ravage her face like the medals of conflict she once coveted, she adamantly refuses any and all implants. Although fully human, she hides her emotions better than many machines.[1]

TriviaEdit

Imprisoned and parasite infected Prisoners who begged Bitterman to "end this" in events of Quake II, possibly did their duty in her squad.

She is apparently the most difficult bot to confront in Quake 3 Arena 1-on-1, beating Xaero at second. Which is not surprising because "Boss Lady" nick should be enough of a warning by itself. Her combat traits only shared with Anarki, who is an arena leader on Tier4.

At Quake Live she got a sister bot called Demona, who uses Major-Red model.
