    I'm just curious as to what his ethnicity might be. From the game, he looks and sounds like he could be Samoan or Tongan. But he has facial ta moko (tattoo) like the Maori.

    I think he's a pacific islander (like cook island maori) as they are both pacific islanders, the jungle looks similar and they have Moko's / facial tattoo's. They are based on Maori's / South Pacific Island ethnicity as in the book they are referred to as "South Islanders"

      The game takes place on Serra, not Earth, so he's not any nationality we know, though he does look samoan-based. One of the Gears books mentions his origins. - Tells you where he's from on Serra.
