Second Lieutenant Dell Morris is a twenty-four-year-old Rhino Squad communications expert and, later, commander from Toronto, Canada.
Dell Morris has been with Rhino squad for more than three years, which makes him second in seniority only to Sergeant Bidwell. Gifted with a quick wit and boundless energy, Morris likes nothing better than to give a running commentary as he mows down Strogg. While his chatter can be a bit trying on his squadmates, Morris is a complete professional in a firefight. The team has come to look to him for guidance when the lieutenant or master sergeant aren't around.
Second Invasion on StroggosEdit
On Stroggos, Morris is left behind with PFC Anderson to establish communications through Strogg jamming. After doing so, he made his way to MSgt. Bidwell's position, getting there at the same time Matthew Kane does. He helps Kane assault the hangar, staying behind after meeting Mahler's team to relay communications. After the hangar is taken, Morris calls Kane back down to the anti-aircraft gun and, when the door to the gun is breached, Morris is ordered by Scott Voss to guard the entrance.
During Operation: Advantage, Morris first opens communications while at the Death convoy staging area. When the convoy arrives at the Tetranode, Morris helps Voss, Bidwell and Kane secure the door controls. He is present with Voss at the detonation position and, while guarding the EMP bomb truck, is attacked by a Harvester but escapes serious injury. When Kane is captured and stroggified, Morris is present in his rescue.
During Operation: Last Hope, Morris is promoted to Second Lieutenant, replacing Voss' stroggification and death. Although he isn't seen for the rest of the operation, he is heard repeatedly giving orders to the other members of Rhino Squad. When Kane succeeds in destroying the Makron and the Nexus core, Morris is seen congratulating him.

- "Holy shit, you're not dead, Strauss wanted to bury dead. Lieutenant order all the squad to hook up with the squad ASAP, If you're injured go to Anderson."
- "What do I miss?"

When Engaging StroggEdit
- "I got a Strogg in my sight!"
- "You picked the wrong marine, Strogg!"
- "Above us!"
- Morris' GameSpot character diary lists him as a Corporal, but he is a Sergeant in-game. Notably, Sledge refers to him as a Corporal when telling Kane about his promotion.
- Morris is an expert in hand-to-hand combat, having black belts in taekwondo, Jeet Kune Do (which doesn't have belt ranks), and aikido.
