From Defiance Wiki
- "...I am a career military man and my sole duty in life is to serve the Earth Republic."
- — Noah Grant - Gut Check
Grant turned down a promotion with the ER Army so he could continue to lead combat missions with the Black Hawks. He was assigned as leader of the Bay Area Expedition escorting Karl Von Bach and a number of Ark Hunters to the Bay Area, despite his reservations about the man. He had to remind Von Bach that the Earth Republic was not a limousine service and that he could not order around the E-Rep troops. Grant survived the crash of the EMS New Freedom and immediately began ordering his troops to find as many survivors as possible. He sent an ark hunter to help him in rescuing the survivors and in return he agreed to help find Von Bach. Grant was also very interested in Cass Ducar and what she knew about the area.

Grant sent the ark hunter to take care of some Mutant snipers attacking the rescue teams, sent the ark hunter to help find some medical supplies, and then with Cass's help reactivate and reconfigure KTAM Radio Station to be used to establish communications with New York. Once communcations were fixed, Grant sent the ark hunter to track lost survivors. Cass located some missing soldiers on Angel Island and went with some ark hunters to find them, Cass leaving to find more help and bringing Grant himself to the island; unknown to Cass and the ark hunters, one of the soldiers was Grant's son. When Cass and the ark hunter located Von Bach, Grant sent them to Jon Coopers place in Madera to keep Von Bach safe.

Grant discovered that the EMS New Freedom had been shot down using a Nova-Strike Orbital Defense System and passed the information on to Cooper. Grant moved his men into San Francisco to help in stopping Nim Shondu and Dark Matter from activating a terra-spire. Grant and his men worked to get ready for an assault on Dark Matter forces and was angered when his men were unable to capture the Downtown area, one of vital strategic importance, so he sent in the ark hunter to take them out, hoping that his view of ark hunter's abilities would once again be proven wrong. Grant organized his troops for the attack, directing his men, the Monolith mech that Rosa Rodriguez had taken control of, the Scrappers that Eren Niden took control of and the ark hunter.
