Characters[modifier]

Jorge-052[modifier]

«

Chief Warrant Officer Jorge-052 was part of the SPARTAN-II project and eventually served as the heavy weapons specialist on Noble Team.

»

Jorge-052
Chief Warrant Officer

Service Number: S-052
Affiliation: UNSC Army (S-II)
Species: Human
Homeworld: Reach

Height: 7ft 4in (223.5cm)
Weight: 320lbs (145.2kg)
Born: March 5, 2511
Died: August 14, 2552

Summary
Though naturally strong and driven, Jorge was not selected for the SPARTAN-II program based on his physical strength and tenacity alone. Indeed, where others failed Jorge often had a plan, and he preferred to overcome obstacles with subtlety and minimum expenditure of lives and resources. While brave and exceptionally lucky, Jorge was something of a fatalist toward the end of his career, believing that he had long outlived the span of time allotted to a Spartan warrior. For this reason, he would often take risks he deemed worthwhile for the good of his unit and the UNSC. Despite having only lived there as a civilian for a meager six years, he was also oddly sentimental about Reach and held the planet and her people close to his heart well into his career as a Spartan.

Jorge was a native of Reach and was born in the small city of Pálháza. After his abduction for the SPARTAN-II program at the age of six, Jorge was trained to be an augmented soldier of unequaled value and formidability. He fought against the Covenant and humans rebels for decades, later finding placement on the Special Warfare fireteam called Noble, which was primarily composed of younger, less-experienced Spartan-III super-soldiers. As Noble Five, this career soldier served in numerous military campaigns, providing invaluable support for the team from his seasoned combat history, ultimately culminating in a return to his home planet of Reach. On August 14, 2552, Jorge died in defense of his homeworld, manually triggering a slipspace event near the Covenant supercarrier Long Night of Solace in an effort to stem the enemy’s implacable naval strength.

Kat-B320[modifier]

«

Kat-B320 was a Spartan-III super-soldier and second-in-command of Noble Team. She was killed in action during the closing days of the fall of Reach.

»

Kat-B320
Lieutenant Commander

Service Number: B-320
Affiliation: UNSC Army (S-III)
Species: Human
Homeworld: New Harmony

Height: 6ft 9in (205.7cm)
Weight: 244.9lbs (111.1kg)
Born: January 30, 2530
Died: August 23, 2552

Summary
An inspired tactician and brilliant warrior, Kat-B320 was hand-picked to serve outside the standard SPARTAN-III deployment plans as a result of her exceptional abilities and potential. Withdrawn from combat shortly before Operation: TORPEDO, which resulted in the deaths of nearly all of Beta Company, Kat was eventually placed on Noble Team, under the command of Carter-A259, where she excelled in battlenet management, tactical planning, and intelligence synthesis.

Kat-B320 was born in the city of Monastir, one of the three "jewel cities" on the colony of New Harmony. Though her father had already been killed in action on Harvest and her mother died of cancer in 2536, the fact that her living grandmother was a retired Army General meant her conscription into the SPARTAN-III program would arouse too many political issues. However, when Kat's grandmother was killed during the fall of New Harmony, ONI seized the chance to induct Kat. Brilliant, athletic, and beholden to the UNSC even before her indoctrination began, Kat was marked for special assignment shortly after her augmentations were completed. She and Carter-A259 formed the core of Noble Team, a unit found within a special tasks division of the SPARTAN-III program assigned to SPECWARCOM.

During the battle for the colony of Fumirole in April of 2552, Kat lost her arm while attempting to infiltrate a Covenant cruiser positioned just above the capital city. Although she quickly recovered, the mission claimed teammate Thom-293 and continued to haunt Kat sometime after. In late August of 2552, Kat was preparing to evacuate New Alexandria with the rest of Noble Team when she was shot down by a Sangheili sniper, though her contributions to the team proved invaluable in the completion of their mission on Reach.

Carter-A259[modifier]

«

Commander Carter-A259 was a Spartan-III super-soldier who led Fireteam Noble. He was killed in action during the fall of Reach.

»

Carter-A259
Commander

Service Number: S-A259
Affiliation: UNSC Army (S-III)
Species: Human
Homeworld: Biko

Height: 6ft 10in (208.3cm)
Weight: 250lbs (113.4kg)
Born: August 27, 2520
Died: August 30, 2552

Summary
Commander Carter was a thinker and a leader--valuable qualities for anyone put in charge of young Spartan commandos expected to face impossible odds in every mission they undertake. Though he had been in command of Noble Team for years, only he and Kat remain of the original members. The rest had long since been killed in action or crippled during the many holding actions and desperate evacuations that typified the Covenant War. Though Spartans had come and gone from Noble, Carter was a master of building strong, tight-knit teams and was given considerable latitude in selecting replacement personnel by his superiors in both NAVSPECWAR and SPECWARCOM. Thus, it came as a surprise when Colonel Urban Holland personally selected a replacement for Thom (Noble Six) shortly after he was killed in action on Fumirole.

Carter was born in the city of Durban on the colony of Biko. Both of his parents died during the Covenant assault on the world. Before he could join the rest of the planet's refugee program his biometric profile and psychological screening alerted ONI monitors of his suitability for the SPARTAN-III program. Though older than many of the other orphaned children used in SPARTAN-III, he quickly proved to be an exceptional leader and warrior. He impressed both Kurt-051 and Mendez during the training of Alpha Company on Onyx, which fast-tracked him for command of a special fireteam when he graduated in 2536. Groups such as Carter's were both deemed too valuable to expend in suicidal operations and extremely useful as bargaining chips by ONI's Beta-5. To this end, Carter and his team were transferred to UNICOM operational control in an arrangement to secure Army support for SPARTAN-III within the UNSC High Command.

In July of 2552, Carter's team was sent to investigate a possible rebel attack at a remote communications array, unaware that the true threat was the Covenant. During the planet’s fall, Carter bravely led Noble even after the planet's doom became inevitable. Eventually, he sacrificed his life so that Noble Six could complete the team's objective--delivering a fragment of Cortana to the UNSC Pillar of Autumn before it departed.

Emile-A239[modifier]

«

Warrant Officer Emile-A239 was a Spartan-III super-soldier serving with Noble Team. He was killed in action during the closing days of the fall of Reach.

»

Emile-A239
Warrant Officer

Service Number: S-A239
Affiliation: UNSC Army (S-III)
Species: Human
Homeworld: Eridanus II

Height: 6ft 10in (208.4cm)
Weight: 234.7lbs (106.5kg)
Born: March 11, 2523
Died: August 30, 2552

Summary
Emile believed that clinging to one’s humanity during a conflict, where loss equals extinction, is about as rational as drowning in a pool of your own blood--they cannot co-exist, so he decided early on in his career to never let them.

Emile was loud and flashy in combat, which inevitably drew attention to his actions during combat. He wanted to prove to everyone (as well as himself) that he was not afraid of the enemy nor was he afraid of doing whatever was necessary to win this war. It was for this reason that Emile was often guilty of overkill, but his apparent sadism was in actuality an affectation-- he did what he did because he knew that it could potentially break the enemy’s will to fight, not necessarily because he enjoyed it. The one personal action Emile took to signify his victories were the scratches he made on his visor--each of the hundreds of marks that make up its skull-visage in order to threaten the Covenant opposition at first sight.

Emile was born on Eridanus II. Although his parents had been killed during Insurrection activity when he was very young, his older brother took care of him on Luxor. During the fall of the planet, his brother sacrificed himself so that Emile could escape. This had a profound impact on the previously exuberant and rebellious youth. Subsequently, he was taken along with hundreds of other orphans to fill out the SPARTAN-III program. Emile quickly adapted and excelled in his training after discovering that he could fill the hole in his heart with the corpses of the Covenant. Emile graduated from the program at the age of 13, though his aptitude was such that he was removed from the general population of Alpha Company to be used for tasks that required a more skillful hand.

Jun-A266[modifier]

«

Jun-A266 is a Spartan-III super-soldier and the last surviving member of Noble Team. He is currently the acting Chief of Staff and head recruiter of the Spartan service branch.

»

Jun-A266

Service Number: S-A266
Affiliation: Spartan Branch (S-III)
Species: Human
Homeworld: New Harmony

Height: 6ft 11in (211.6cm)
Weight: 244lbs (111.1kg)
Born: February 28, 2524

Summary
Jun-A266 is a Spartan-III super-soldier and the last surviving member of Noble Team. He is currently the acting Chief of Staff and head recruiter of the Spartan service branch, serving under Admiral Musa. Though technically retired from the UNSC Army and a civilian, he remains a deadly combatant more than capable of holding his own, even alongside the current generation of Spartans.

Jun was born in the city of Tyumen on the colony of New Harmony just prior to the Covenant War. One of the youngest orphans to be abducted for the SPARTAN-III project, Jun grew to be an expert marksman and seasoned scout, though complications with his augmentations nearly crippled him. Following graduation at the age of 12, he became one of Alpha Company’s best Spartan-III assets, where his skill as a sniper soon had him leading a headhunter team conducting missions directly for ONI. While he rarely speaks of this period, it can be surmised that he was responsible for tracking down and killing a number of rebel leaders who broke the tentative ceasefire between the UNSC and hostile militia groups after the attack on Harvest. Nevertheless, his performance was exemplary, leading to his selection as a member of the Special Warfare group’s elite Noble Team.

In July 2552, the Spartan fireteam was called to Reach to investigate a downed relay. Here Jun, as Noble Three, played an important part in discovering and assessing a Covenant invasion force. During the battle which followed, Jun bravely defended the planet until he and what was left of his team were ordered to the classified Sword Base. It was there, deep below the classified ONI facility, where he learned of Doctor Catherine Halsey’s research on the alien race known as the Forerunners. He was then ordered to split off from Noble and escort Halsey to the relative safety of Castle Base. Jun eventually escaped Reach and was later selected to lead the development of SPARTAN-IV alongside Admiral Musa.

Post-War
Somewhat of a loner by nature, Jun only competes with himself and has little time for trivial personality conflicts that impede efficiency. Though he is vocal and not afraid to speak his mind, Jun is always tightly focused on the mission at hand. Some mistake this for a deep philosophy, but in truth, it is more pragmatic than mystical. As a Spartan-III he was no stranger to loss and witnessed some of the best and brightest of humanity's youth be sacrificed--sometimes pointlessly--for temporary gain. He views the Spartan-IV program and the Spartan branch as a necessary compromise between the creation of child-janissaries and the need for super-soldiers in an extremely dangerous galaxy. To this end, he takes his duties as recruiter and training overseer with deadly seriousness, and is uncompromising in his review process of potential Spartan inductees. Although he has personally recruited Spartans that have eventually gone rogue or failed the training process, to those on the outside he often seems unconcerned. Only Musa is aware that Jun secretly takes even those events as evidence of the success of the Spartan-IV project, as those men and women had a choice as to what they would eventually become.

Though now he rarely has the opportunity to use his skills in the field, Jun is widely recognized as one the most talented snipers alive, though he is loath to boast such. His ability to maintain situational awareness and predict enemy behavior is particularly notable, as is his attention to detail while conducting overwatch. Even as a civilian his keen eye and ability to discern motivations from seemingly casual contact is almost preternatural. Jun often downplays this ability, describing it as a combination of simple deduction and great skill at being able to lip-read (or mandible-read, in the case of Sangheili).

Alice-130[modifier]

«

Alice-130 was part of the legendary SPARTAN-II project and member of the Red Team detachment associated with UNSC Spirit of Fire.

»

Alice-130
Alice Treske

Rank: Senior Chief Petty Officer
Species: Human
Homeworld: Passage
Service Number: S-130

Affiliation: UNSC Navy (S-II)
Height: 6ft 11in (211.6cm)
Weight: 282lbs (127.9kg)
Born: July 17, 2511

Summary
In 2511, Alice Treske was born on the sparsely populated colony world of Passage. She was eventually targeted by ONI as a candidate for the SPARTAN-II project. Abducted shortly after turning six, she was trained and augmented into an extraordinary super-soldier, dubbed Alice-130. As a Spartan, she was attached to Red Team early on during the Covenant War, effectively working alongside Douglas-042 and team leader Jerome-092. As the war took its toll on the UNSC's Outer Colonies, Alice-130 and Red Team were deployed to Arcadia. There they were tasked with defending the city of Pirth.

Spirit of Fire
It was on Arcadia that Red Team synched up with the ground forces of UNSC Spirit of Fire, which had pursued Covenant ships from the battered world of Harvest. Integrated into Spirit's numbers, Red Team helped repel the Covenant invasion and prevent the enemy from gaining access to a mysterious set of ruins on the far side of the world. Red Team left Arcadia aboard the Spirit of Fire in pursuit of a Covenant vessel to a remote Forerunner shield world. On this strange planet, they assisted in the destruction of ancient Forerunner ships that would have been used against humankind were the Covenant to acquire them. Alice-130 and her team remained stranded aboard the Spirit of Fire when the ship's slipspace drive was sacrificed in order to destroy the shield world. Her current status is unknown.

April Orenski[modifier]

«

April Orenski attended the Corbulo Academy of Military Science and witnessed the Covenant’s brutal assault and destruction of Circinius IV in 2526.

»

April Orenski
Officer Cadet

Species: Human
Homeworld: Harvest
Service Number: 45353-09738-AO
Affiliation: UNSC

Hair Color: Black
Eye Color: Brown
Born: June 18, 2508

Summary
Orenski was born on Harvest to parents Roger and Madelyn Orenski, both of whom served as high-ranking officers in the UNSC. This pedigree destined Orenski for a career of military service, resulting in her enlistment at the Corbulo Academy of Military Science, an elite training school based on Circinius IV. She entered the school in 2523 as part of the graduating class of 2526 -- though the Covenant’s invasion of Circinius IV cut short her time there. Due to the isolation of Circinius IV, as well as the secrecy surrounding the Covenant’s initial assault of Harvest in 2525, Orenski remained unaware if her parents were present during the attack on her homeworld.

Current Status
Orenski’s current status is unknown. Although it is confirmed that she survived the events of 2526, where she completed school, what military branch (if any) she joined, and her current status remains a mystery.

H4-Anthony Madsen (render 01).png

Anthony Madsen
Spartan

Species: Human
Homeworld: New Llanelli
Service Number: 75283-56282-AM
Affiliation: Spartan Branch (S-IV)

Height: 6ft 10in (209cm)
Weight: 278lbs (126.1kg)
Born: October 19, 2530

Summary
Despite being the eldest Spartan on Fireteam Majestic, Anthony Madsen previously led a somewhat undistinguished career in the Marine Corps. His recruitment into the SPARTAN-IV program wasn’t the result of any particular accomplishment, but rather nepotism, as both his father and grandfather were generals in the Marine Corps. Madsen believes his performance as a Spartan will ultimately dictate his legacy and hopefully salvage a rather lackluster military career. Madsen leverages GEN2 RECON-class Mjolnir armor in the field and is most proficient with the sniper rifle.

Axl[modifier]

«

Axl, a member of the Yonhet, possesses a remarkable talent for acquiring a large variety of difficult to find items.

»

Axl
Fringe Smuggler

Species: Yonhet
Homeworld: Yonhe
Affiliation: Covenant Fringe

Occupation: Smuggler/Trader
Languages Spoken: Trade Pidgin, Yonhetian (native)

Summary
Axl is a member of the Yonhet, an alien race native to a small moon called Yonhe, and who appear to be very talented at acquiring a large variety of difficult to find items. When the Yonhet initially came into contact with the Covenant, they were viewed as militarily insignificant, and with such a tiny population, there was little value in considering them as full signatories to the Covenant Empire. However, their talents gave them flexibility and a high degree of tolerance within the Covenant. Moreover, their cynical but devoted adherence to the potential benefits of the Great Journey meant that their loyalty was never in question.

Fringe Benefits
The Yonhet are considered part of the “Covenant fringe”, a collection of species scattered throughout the Orion Arm that both provide various strategic and infrastructure-related advantages as well as posing no real military threat to Covenant Empire. With the war focus shifting, and attentions turned back towards human expansion and rebuilding efforts, ONI and the UNSC are just beginning to gather the first bits of intelligence on the exact nature and size of the Fringe.

Integration
Axl and many others of his species largely remained in hiding until the Human-Covenant War was over. This was both because it was a fight that wasn’t their own, and because the growing scale of the conflict had made exploration and trade much too dangerous and difficult. In the past few years, the Yonhet have begun to emerge in hopes that the coast is clear enough to make a profit from the fleeting peacetime and political uncertainty. In the opinion of more than a few Sangheili, the Yonhet are considered more reliable than even the Kig-Yar. With the chaos and confusion of the Treaty period, fledgling Covenant warlords have begun to turn to the Yonhet more often to take advantage of their natural skill at sniffing out Forerunner relics. The interaction between these new warlords and the fringe species’ varies greatly however. Where some Covenant leaders have seen fit to elevate particular individuals to more trusted roles, others have taken a more oppressive approach. This has led to multiple isolated reports of Yonhet mistreatment and even enslavement by Sangheili warlords desperate for a larger share of the reemerging Covenant power structure.

049 Abject Testament is a Forerunner monitor created to maintain Halo Installation 03 (Gamma Halo).

»

049 Abject Testament
03-049

Species: Monitor
Affiliation: Forerunner

Length: 22.9in (58.2cm)
Width: 19.9in (50.6cm)

Summary
049 Abject Testament is an ancient Forerunner AI construct. His mandate was to maintain Halo Installation 03 (Gamma Halo) and protect it from the Flood, at any cost.

At some point after the firing of the Halo Array, Abject Testament ceased directing the Installation’s functions. It is unclear as to the circumstances, though the ring’s archives show tens of thousands of reports filed by Installation sub-monitors regarding the poor state of quarantine controls and lack of action on outstanding maintenance and research requests dating back at least twenty thousand years, by human reckoning.

In the year 2557, 859 Static Carillon, keeper of the Composer's Forge, noticed a service portal between the monitors' respective installations had been reactivated. Static Carillon made several attempts to contact Abject Testament about the recent reactivation using secure Forerunner links unavailable to humans, without success. This prompted Static Carillon to travel to Installation 03 and investigate the situation. Once on the installation, Carillon discovered another Forerunner presence and the source of the service portal’s reactivation - the Didact.

The current fate and whereabouts of 049 Abject Testament remain a mystery.

Arbiter Thel 'Vadam[modifier]

«

The Arbiter Thel ‘Vadam, once a devoted Covenant warrior, forged a bond with humanity after the discovery that his entire belief system was based on a lie.

»

Thel Vadam[sic]
Arbiter

Former Rank: Supreme Commander of the Fleet of Particular Justice
Species: Sangheili
Homeworld: Sanghelios
Affiliation: Swords of Sanghelios

Height: 7ft 10in (238.6cm)
Weight: 319lbs (144.7kg)
Eye Color: Amber
Born: December, 10, 2485

Summary
Thel ‘Vadam was once a devoted Covenant warrior and the Supreme Commander of the Fleet Of Particular Justice. During the fall of Reach, his pursuit of a human vessel led to the discovery and eventual destruction of Halo. However, his failure to protect the sacred ring placed him at odds with the head of Covenant leadership--the High Prophet of Truth. As punishment, he was appointed Arbiter and sent on a suicidal mission. After the Prophet had betrayed him, ‘Vadam discovered the entirety of the Covenant’s belief system was based on a lie. He then forged a bond with humanity and led a band of rebel Sangheili against the Covenant, helping crush his former allies and bring an end to the war. Returning home, he was installed as a leader, seeking peace between their kind and the humans, though others rose against him and brought Sanghelios into civil war for several years. He currently seeks unity for his people and an end to civil war.

‘Vadam generally wears the traditional armor style worn by the Arbiters who served before him. More recently he dons a ceremonial battledress as both a tribute to the previous Arbiters and as a symbol of transition towards his vision of a united Sanghelios. The Energy Sword is his weapon of choice, and he occasionally uses his personal blade which carries the sobriquet “Prophets’ Bane”.

Early Career
The Arbiter, known previously as Thel ‘Vadamee, was placed into Covenant service at a young age. Early in his military career, he received a leadership role, an appointment that grew during the critical Metisette Conflict in 2535, and eventually granted him the mantle of Supreme Commander. In this capacity, ‘Vadamee flourished, conquering and laying waste to numerous human colonies in the name of the Covenant. However during the battle for the planet Reach, his pursuit of a single enemy vessel ultimately led to the destruction of the Covenant.

The Halo Conflict
In chasing the rogue human ship (UNSC Pillar of Autumn), ‘Vadamee’s forces discovered Alpha Halo, one of the Forerunners’ Sacred Rings the Covenant had sought since their founding thousands of years earlier. This represented the culmination of the Covenant’s core goal: the activation of Halo, an event that allegedly offered divinity to all members of the Covenant.

However, due to a political conflict with the Prophet of Stewardship, ‘Vadamee’s efforts to contain both the human threat and the Flood outbreak were subverted. This allowed an enemy known as the Master Chief to destroy the ring. The resulting catastrophe, as well as the capture of his flagship Ascendant Justice, put him at odds with Covenant leadership—specifically the San’Shyuum Hierarch known as the High Prophet of Truth. The Hierarch forced on him the shamed mantle of the Arbiter and the task of locating the Sacred Icon -- an Activation Index. Only with the holy relic could the Hierarchs ignite the newly discovered Delta Halo installation and return ‘Vadamee former glory.

Delta Halo
Upon acquiring the Sacred Icon, the Arbiter was struck down by the Prophets’ Jiralhanae guards. This act revealed the Prophet’s secret betrayal of the Sangheili and initiated the Great Schism—a civil war that tore their longstanding alliance apart. Along with his encounter with a Flood Gravemind, the Arbiter uncovered the disturbing truth of Halo. It wasn’t a sublimation device capable of imbuing divinity on the faithful, as the Prophets had instructed, but rather a devastating weapon which, if activated, would destroy all sentient life in the galaxy. Working with the Master Chief (the very same human who destroyed the first ring), the Arbiter prevented the Covenant from activating Delta Halo. He then followed his newfound allies back to Earth to fight the last vestige of the Covenant.

Breaking the Covenant
Allied with a handful of rebel Sangheili who had survived the Great Schism, the Arbiter and the Master Chief pursued the Covenant to the massive Forerunner installation known as the Ark. It was here that he assassinated the Prophet of Truth, ushering an end to the Covenant and the threat of Halo. Despite this victory, his species remained fragmented in the months that followed. Those allied with him against the Covenant stayed in his service, as did his family state. Others found political and ideological solidarity in him while the Sangheili’s entire religious framework went through the process of redefinition. However, some Sangheili still held to the strictures and theology of the Covenant religion, although they did not deny the San’Shyuum’s deception or the many failings of the original Covenant. Others were indifferent to the Covenant religion and faith as a whole, but remained staunchly belligerent toward any peace with the humans, still holding to their old ways and the hostilities of previous years.

Current Status
Currently, Arbiter Thel ‘Vadam is considered the formal, interim leader of the Sangheili (Elites), and specifically his species’ homeworld called Sanghelios. His role to end their war with the humans created a traumatic dichotomy within the Sangheili. Some support his authority and leadership, gathering under the banner “Swords of Sanghelios”. Others, however, find it heretical on historically-religious grounds, and yet others find cross-species alignment with the humans politically naive. Even further, many Sangheili regard ‘Vadam as a “false Arbiter.” They claim that since he did not ultimately sacrifice himself in battle, he represents the ultimate heresy against both the Great Journey and Sanghelios itself. They view him as a coward that must be extinguished for the Sangheili to truly ascend.

Arris Le
Alerian Smuggler

Species: Human
Homeworld: Aleria

Summary
While most Alerian colonists grew up in the mining trade, Arris recognized from a young age that it would likely amount to nothing more than a dead-end profession. With this in mind, he began to involve himself with several different Alerian "courier guilds", risking the inevitable dangers of a smuggler's existence in hopes that the much larger pay-offs would be sufficient to pay down the debt that plagued his family. When the primary Alerian mining union reached its inevitable collapse, Arris would often find himself in a de facto recruiting role for his various employers, convincing desperate colonists to assist in dangerous - and very often illegal - smuggling missions with the promise of a payoff that would outweigh the risks involved.

Affiliation: UNSC Marine Corps

Height: 6ft 2in (187.2cm)
Weight: 210lbs (95.5kg)
Born: Classified

Summary
Sergeant Major Avery Johnson was a seasoned and battle-hardened veteran of the UNSC Marine Corps, having accumulated decades of combat experience against both human Insurrection forces and the ruthless armies of the Covenant. Though he led many squads into combat, every marine under his command respected Johnson as a consummate boots-on-the-ground, no-nonsense leader; even when he chose to motivate them with harsh language and relentless (though jocular) badgering.

Johnson would ultimately lose his life in a battle against the rampant Forerunner AI 343 Guilty Spark, yet his sacrifice would help protect humanity from the threat of the Flood and the galaxy-spanning destruction of the Halo Array.

Andrew Del Rio
Senator

Service Number: 90302-75627-AD
Affiliation: Unified Earth Government

Height: 5ft 11in (180cm)
Weight: 210lbs (95.3kg)
Born: May 28, 2500

Summary
Andrew Del Rio currently serves as a popular Senator in the Unified Earth Government. Appointed to replace a deceased colleague, Del Rio has proven to be a remarkably able politician and bureaucrat who finds the labyrinthine halls of power in the UEG as comfortable as the halls of a starship.

Captain of the Infinity
Del Rio served as the project manager for UNSC Navy’s secretive superweapon project – the Infinity – during its construction, and as its captain during final fitting and shakedown tour. Though he artfully avoided promotion to Admiral to retain his command at least once, his career was unfortunately ended after Infinity’s fateful discovery of Requiem.

After crashing in the interior of the shield world, Del Rio led the defensive efforts, aided by his executive officer Thomas Lasky and, later, the Master Chief and his AI companion Cortana. Heavily damaged and facing the Didact’s massive Promethean and Covenant army, Del Rio decided to immediately return to Earth and assemble reinforcements. Unfortunately, he did not account for the fact that Lord Hood and most of the other Security Council members would harshly judge his seeming abandonment of the Chief, removing him from command while they began an investigation.

That his initial analysis was proven correct by the failure of the Navy defense fleets to slow or stop the Mantle’s Approach from composing New Phoenix mattered little with the return of Earth’s legendary hero and his victory over the Didact. With no prospect of a new command while the UEG and UNSC investigated the disaster, Del Rio chose to retire, spinning his connections and accumulated favors into a rewarding, if obscure, political posting in the Jovian colonies.

Edward Buck
Buck

Rank: Gunnery Sergeant
Species: Human
Homeworld: Draco III
Service Number: 92458-37017-EB

Affiliation: ODST
Height: 6ft 2in (188cm)
Weight: 196lbs (89kg)
Born: August 22, 2510

Summary
Born on the idyllic colony world of Draco III to working-class parents, Edward Buck displayed strong leadership skills and perseverance, even before his military career began. He enlisted in the UNSC Marine Corps in 2528 and was immediately sent to training facilities on Earth and, later, Reach. His early career in the Marines was laudable, including a harrowing six-month rotation in the ruins of Harvest’s capital city in the 2531 liberation campaign. It was this operation that secured the success of his application to the Orbital Drop Shock Trooper (ODST) course in 2532.

Buck served on the front lines in the war against the Covenant for over two decades, establishing himself as an incredibly dedicated leader and deadly warrior even among the elite ranks of the ODST. Though he told only his closest companions, his only regret during the war was that he was not able to participate in the defense of Draco III when it was invaded in 2545. His desire for revenge may have eventually resulted in his death had he not become romantically involved with the enigmatic Veronica Dare and learned to temper his bloodlust.

After fighting in the doomed defense of New Alexandria during the fall of Reach, Buck returned to Earth. When the Covenant tried to gain footing in the African city of New Mombasa on October 20, 2552, Buck led Alpha-Nine, a hand-picked squad of ODSTs. They dropped into the heart of the besieged city in search of an ONI-designated Tier One asset. Despite the unit being scattered upon entry, Buck located each teammate, secured the asset, and succeeded in his mission.

Post War
Following the close of the Covenant War in 2553, Buck was approached by Spartan Jun-A266, who attempted to recruit the veteran ODST trooper into the growing SPARTAN-IV program. To the Jun’s surprise, Buck declined the offer, wanting to remain with his current team. In 2554, Buck and the rest of Alpha-Nine were sent to Draco III - Buck's homeworld - to help quell a dangerous rebel uprising against the UNSC. Eventually, Alpha-Nine found themselves in a standoff with Captain Ingridson of the insurgency in the New Albany capitol building, which was being used as the rebels' local headquarters. With Captain Ingridson holding the Rookie hostage, Buck was alerted by Spartan Sarah Palmer to encroaching rebel reinforcements surrounding the building. Once his team was in position, Buck signaled for Mickey and Dutch to engage the rebels inside the building while Palmer and her Spartan-IVs engaged forces outside. Though both Buck and Palmer's respective crews would prove successful, it would come at great cost; during the conflict, Captain Ingridson executed the Rookie in cold blood, an event that would forever change the remaining members of Alpha Nine.

SPARTAN-IV
After the Rookie's funeral, Buck spoke once again with Jun-A266, and was told that approval had been handed down to allow the rest of Buck's remaining team into the SPARTAN-IV program as well. With this news, Buck finally relented. With the Rookie KIA and Dutch choosing to finally retire, Buck, Romeo, and Mickey joined the fledgling Spartan ranks. Alpha-Nine's integration into the program would certainly not come without incident, including enduring a terrorist attack during training which claimed the life of Captain O'Day, who served as the recruits' drill instructor.

In 2555, Buck and his squad were assigned to a mission on the outer colony of Talitsa, where they were to rescue and retrieve two high-value assets for ONI that had been captured by insurgents: the Huragok Quick to Adjust, and Sadie Endesha, its human handler. On the way to their intended mission objective, Mickey turned on Buck and Romeo, revealing that he could no longer live supporting the UNSC’s seemingly anti-colonial independence sentiment. As Buck and Romeo were being escorted to the insurgents' base, tensions boiled over and a conflict ensued. Using their newfound Spartan superiority to their advantage, Buck killed the rebel leader and overpowered Mickey, rendering him unconscious. Romeo eliminated the remaining insurgents and proceeded to rescue both Quick to Adjust and Sadie while Buck kept watch over Mickey, waiting for him to regain consciousness. Once the mission was accomplished, Mickey was escorted back to Mars and subsequently incarcerated.

After receiving high commendations for his actions on Talitsa, Buck requested to be placed on a new squad, this time as simply a member rather than a leader. His current status remains classified.

Master Builder
Faber-of-Will-and-Might

Rank: Master Builder
Species: Forerunner

Rate: Builder
Born: 110962 BCE

Summary
In terms of intellect and political clout and, the rate of Builder was widely considered to be the most powerful and influential caste in Forerunner society. Within the Builder rate, the highest attainable rank was called the Master Builder, which served as the head of the Builder rate, and guided the efforts of all constituent guilds.

The final known individual to hold this rank was an incredibly powerful Forerunner named Faber-of-Will-and-Might. Wielding incredible intellect and influence, Faber became as ruthless as he was cunning. Though the Master Builder and the Didact spent much of their early careers as friends, time and circumstance saw them become political arch-rivals and eventually sworn enemies. The cause of this stemmed largely due to the Didact’s adamant opposition to the creation and implementation of the Halo Array, the design and construction of which was commissioned by the Master Builder. After many millennia of increasing conflict, the discord eventually culminated in both the Master Builder’s takeover of the Forerunner Old Council as well as the exile of the Didact.
