"My Name is Cyrus Temple" is a mission in Saints Row: The Third.

Kia: "Welcome back, sir."
Playa as Cyrus: "Whassup?"
Kia: "I need you to sign off on some prototypes I've been working on."
Playa as Cyrus: "Thanks for the I wanna process these two A-SAP."
Kia and Playa (as Cyrus Temple) talk aboard the Thermopylae.


Playa calls Pierce and informs him that Shaundi has been kidnapped by STAG.[1] Playa quickly creates a plan and tells Pierce to meet him at an Image As Designed. There, they inform Pierce and Viola DeWynter of their scheme to use plastic surgery to look like Cyrus Temple, the commander of STAG, and take the pair to the Thermopylae. There, under disguise as Cyrus, they infiltrate the aircraft carrier and save Shaundi.

Once they reach the Thermopylae, the plan goes awry as a STAG Commando escorts Viola and Pierce to the ships detention center and Playa, as Cyrus, is forced to walk with Kia to approve some prototype designs.Kia receives a message from the real Cyrus Temple and, after a brief scuffle with Playa, she is locked in the room as Playa escapes. Under fire from STAG, Playa reaches the brig and frees their friends before then destroying the ship's Reactor, causing a chain reaction that destroys the aircraft carrier. The four escape on a Condor VTOL and watch as the Thermopylae sinks into the ocean. The gang are satisfied that STAG are no longer a problem, but twelve hours later STAG enforce martial law on Steelport and raise the bridges to and from Downtown.


My Name is Cyrus Temple - Find the Brig.png

Go to Image As Designed

After the phone call with Pierce, head on over to Image As Designed in Rosen Oaks and watch the cutscene.

Find a VTOL

Head inside the N-Forcer waiting outside afterwards and drive on down to Sierra Point and commandeer the vacant Condor VTOL.

Land on the Thermopylae

Once Pierce and Viola are inside, fly towards the Thermopylae for another cutscene.

Follow Kia

After walking alongside Kia as she slowly makes her way to Research and Development, the choice is given to "sign off" on two of three unique "projects", which are unlocked as a reward after completing the mission.

Find the brig

After Playa's disguise is blown, head down to the brig to rescue the three Saints. The brig isn't exceptionally far away but there are a number of STAG along the way, some with Riot Shields.

Free your friends

In the brig, Pierce can be found on the ground floor whilst Viola and Shaundi can be found above.

Find the Reactor

Now go to the Reactor Control Room.

Along the way is an insignificant trap set up by STAG which involves Flashbangs and Riot Shields.

Destroy the console

Destroy the console by shooting it. The Reactor Control Room houses two Specialists with sniper rifles at the end of the area near the console.

Escape the Thermopylae

Once the console has been destroyed with gunfire, there is three minutes to reach the hangar and steal a VTOL to escape. Follow the hallways to escape. The resulting explosions should take care of the majority of STAG soldiers.

Hijack a VTOL

take the Condor VTOL at the back-right (also southeast) of the hangar; the other VTOLs explode when approached.

Choice Reward
Hoverbike, Satchel Charges Specter, Satchel Charge
Satchel Charges, S.T.A.G. Tank v2 Satchel Charge, Crusader
Hoverbike, S.T.A.G. Tank v2 Specter, Crusader
  • The Specter is a hover bike armed with a machine gun. As with other STAG aircraft, it is a VTOL and is stored in a helicopter Garage. STAG never use it and it is never available to steal. There is a Cheat for this.
  • Satchel Charges are triggered explosives. These small remote bombs go in the Explosive weapon category and are unlocked in the Weapons Cache. There is a Cheat for this.
  • The S.T.A.G. Tank v2 is a black Crusader with 50% more firepower. It is the ground equivalent of Cyrus Temple's black F-69 VTOL. It is unlocked in the Garage; STAG continue to use the white Crusader, arguably making it the weakest choice. There is no Cheat for this.



Main article: Newscasts
Jane Valderamma: "Steelport's coastal waters gained a new landmark when the aircraft carrier Thermopylae, operational headquarters for the STAG Initiative, suddenly exploded, scattering wide portions of the wrecked ship over a wide area. Casualties are believed to be surprisingly light. No official cause for the accident has been given, but STAG quickly reassured the city that the ruined nuclear carrier posed no health risk to the city. Commander Temple has shifted his headquarters into Steelport and temporarily restricted the downtown area. All residents are assured that any inconveniences are purely temporary. This is Jane Valderamma with your Military-Approved News."


  • All of Playas voice tell Pierce that someone else picked up Shaundi's phone, and that the voice "sounded military". This happens even if Kia says nothing to Playa during "Stilwater Blues".
  • Playa does not speak when attempting to taunt or compliment while dressed as Cyrus.
  • Provided in this mission is a unique N-Forcer without a gun, but it cannot be obtained.
  • Playa's original head may clip through Cyrus Temple's head if it was created to be large enough.[2]
  • With Female Voice 2, in regards to the Specter, Playa says, "Are the cycles good for forest warfare?" and, "Are they good for avoiding trees?", which is a reference to the similar cycles in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
  • It is possible to walk through the wall behind the staircase leading up to the door inside the Reactor Control Room and fall through the ship, returning to Sunset Park. The VTOLs can't be accessed after this.
  • Playa reverts to their previous clothing, appearance and gender after this mission.
  • As of this mission, Jane Valderamma stops making "Halloween" and "Fall" weather reports and begins making "Winter" weather reports, although the weather conditions don't change.
  • After this mission, all movable bridges leading into the south island of Downtown are raised, and stay that way indefinitely.
    • All raised bridges are Stunt Jumps.
    • The Henry Steel Mills is cut off from Loren Square.
    • STAG are present in the streets at all times, and entering Loren Square or Sunset Park results in a single Notoriety level, entering owned buildings removes Notoriety while inside, but it is reapplied after exiting the building.
    • Steelport Police can assist STAG in taking down the player if needed.
    • The bridges go down immediately after completing the penultimate mission "Three Way", but permanently raise after loading a saved game.
    • All other areas of Steelport are still free to explore safely.
  • The target Condor at the end of the mission can be controlled with the RC Possessor and flown to Playa instead of walking to it.
  • After the mission, a Condor spawns on Saints HQ heliport garage, but is not unlocked in the Garage.
  • All STAG troops that appear in the cutscenes are Commandos. However, in gameplay, only regular STAG soldiers are encountered
  • The filenames at the bottom of the prototype selection screen are based on filenames from Saints Row: The Third and Saints Row 2's source.[3]



Playa: "Pierce, think we got a problem."
Playa: "[Mumbles]"
Pierce: "How so?"
Playa: "Shaundi's been taken."
Playa: "[Snarls]"
Pierce: "Taken? Taken how?"
Playa: "I don't know. Was on the phone with her when I heard the struggle and someone else picked up her phone."
Playa: "[Groans]"
Pierce: "You think Killbane got her?"
Playa: "Sounded military. Sounded like STAG."
Playa: "[Growls]"
Pierce: "So what's the plan?"
Playa: "Head to Image As Designed, I got an idea."
Playa: "[Grunts]"
Pierce: "Is it any good?"
Playa: "Does bold count?"
Playa: "[Groans]"
Pierce: "With you... no."

Cutscene #1[]

Pierce: "This is the worst idea you've ever had."
Viola: "We can't go marching onto STAG'S aircraft carrier."
Playa: "Why not? I'll look just like Cyrus--all I gotta add is a fucked attitude."
Viola: "What happens once you're on board?"
Playa: "I walk in with my prisoners, they take me to the cell block, I grab Shaundi and we leave."
Viola: "I'm sorry -- prisoners?"
Playa: "Yeah, you and Pierce. I'm bringing you in."
Pierce: "Aw hell no!"
