Sonny Quinn, is a Navy SEAL and Special Warfare Operator First Class of Bravo Team, and is referred to as B3, or Bravo 3. He is at his best in firefights and prefers them over a leadership position.


Percival "Sonny" Quinn is the most cliched member of Bravo Team often spouting hackneyed soundbites with the originality of a mass-produced bric. Sonny is a rabid caricature of every redneck Yank ever portrayed on celluloid. This includes his claims to be scared of pretty much everything, including; water, sharks, spiders, jungle, tight spaces - literally anything they come across. Although Sonny is extremely capable in the field, he is not known for his strategic planning and is often not taking seriously in making tactical decisions, seen when fighting with Clay Spenser. Sonny can be seen to get angry very quickly, especially if it includes revenge - however, his heart is always in the right place.

Early Life[]

After his mother died in 1995, when she was 45, and Sonny was approximately 15 years old. He was left to be raised by his very strict father, Emmet Quinn. During this time he began his first serious relationship with his high school sweetheart Hannah Oliver. however not wanting to deal with his home life, this led him to leave Texas and join the Navy when he was 18.

Season 1[]

In Tip of the Spear Sonny is part of the mission that sees Nate Massey die in action. A few months later he joins his friends at Landon Masseys first communion until they're dispatched to a briefing. The Team is tasked with taking down ISL Terrorist Abu Samir Al Masri in Libya where Sonny and Cerberus are called to action. After the threat is eliminated Sonny returns back to the state along with the rest of the crew.

In Other Lives he and the team are joined by Dr. Lucien to prove that the Syrian goverment was working on a deadly nerve-gas. He instructs Lucien on how to jump with a prachute and aids the inexperienced doctor.

They exfiltrate the hostages and bring them to safety.

While celebrating Jason's upcoming return to bravo, he takes Lisa aside and agrees they are better off as friends. The team is sent on a rather public mission to protect a doctor while he collects Ebola samples.
