"We will eradicate the authority of the Earth! Our world is just beginning... theirs is dying. It is not enough to break free. We will break them!"
— Salen Kotch in the story trailer.

Admiral Salen Kotch is the main antagonist in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. He is the leader of the Settlement Defense Front, and the commander of the starship Olympus Mons.

His reign is ended when a Nick Reyes hacked a worker drone on his bridge, first killed off his small human security details, then proceeded to break his gun arm, slammed his face repeatedly onto the command console before self destructs, mortally wounded him with shrapnel into his chest. He is then confronted by Nick Reyes, who could either lets him bled out after mouthing out more hatefilled last words, or stab him in the head with a combat knife, killing him.
