He was an extreme hypochondriac and was tricked once by fellow soldier Ricardo Vega into taking pills which induced vomiting. As a result Golden and his friends gave Vega the nickname "Puke". While Vega loathed it he later took to it to remember Golden. Golden was killed in action by the Scrin.
Golden appears only in the Tiberium Wars novel.
