By 2544, 26 years into her service, Vasquez had made it to the rank of Colonel and was assigned to Sirona as Brigadier General Gaume's executive officer. However, the Siege of Sirona broke out this year and, once Gaume was killed late into the war, Vasquez took over for Gaume, earning a promotion to Brigadier General at the same time.

Biography
Jake Mason came from an extensive line of naval officers, with the family tree stretching back at least as far as the Interplanetary Wars. As such, it came as no surprise when he managed to work his way into Corbulo Academy in 2518. However, once he graduated, he served a rather lackluster career until 2525, when the Human-Covenant war broke out. It was during the early years of the conflict that he was able to make a name for himself, quickly making up for his former lack of promotions by earning three within five years, forgoing typically standard time-in-grade requirements due to extensive exemplary performances and the need for manpower during the war. By the end of the war in 2552, he had made it to the rank of Rear Admiral and served extensively throughout the human colonies. It wasn't until early 2558, when Vice Admiral Logan was removed from the position, that he received a promotion and permanent posting to a single world, taking over for the disgraced Admiral as the commanding officer of the Groombridge Defense Fleet.

Private Jennifer Hess

Era Human-Covenant War
Biography
Jennifer Hess was born to John and Alexandra Hess on the Inner Colony world of Sirona in the city of Maponos. Nine years after her birth, however, Alexandra was killed when a bar fight involving UNSC servicemembers got out of hand. This led to John having a dislike for the UNSC Armed Forces, especially when compounded with the fact that the world was yet untouched by the fighting of the Human-Covenant War and the full scope of the conflict was kept under wraps, preventing him from realizing just how much they were sacrificing for him. While Jen had a good relationship with her father, with him raising her pretty much on his own for the early part of her teenage years, things started changing when the war finally reached Maponos in 2544 with the Siege of Sirona. While he did take his daughter to the Optican building during the Siege and accepted the help of the UNSC Armed Forces once evacuation was rendered impossible, he refused to pick up arms and train to assist in the defense, remaining instead with the civilians in the central courtyard, and discouraged his daughter from doing the same, fearing for their safety and believing the better course of action to be remaining in the relative protection of the inner courtyard. Around this time, he also began dating Sarah Greene, another civilian survivor who mirrored his discouragement towards Jen wanting to pitch in.

This new situation, along with the religious side that Jen had picked up from her mother but that John and Sarah lacked, put a lot of strain on Jen's relationship with her father and Sarah, serving to drive her further from them rather than keep her close to their protection. She grew angry at the pair of adults, seeing them as cowards for refusing to help and just letting others die for them. With her father refusing to endorse her enlistment, she was forced to wait another three years, until 2547, to enlist and join with what little training program the UNSC had left in Maponos, growing even more distraught during this time. While she maintained the belief that she wanted to fight for her own survival and the survival of others, she began to grow conflicted, culminating in a discussion with Chief Petty Officer Alaska-013 about her fears for the future. Finding some bit of solace in the SPARTAN's encouraging words and in her own religion, she found her passion to fight redoubled and, the following month, enlisted the moment she turned eighteen. She went through the makeshift training program the city's defenders had set up and became inducted as a Marine Corps Private later that year, beginning to go on patrols of the inner city to help protect the Optican building and the refugees inside from the Covenant advance. However, in June 2547, when assisting a group of survivors led by Alaska-013 fight back a Covenant attack, Jen was stabbed from behind with an energy sword from an active camouflaged Special Operations Elite, dying in the arms of the SPARTAN she had found a role-model in months prior. Alaska-013 avenged her death and assisted in returning her body to the Optican building, where her father oversaw her cremation as per her religious beliefs.

Biography
Kate Guillou was born on the colony world Sirona at the start of the 26th century. Growing up in a military family, Guillou learned to use a variety of weapons from a young age, as well as picking up several martial arts for self-defense at the urging of her parents. Upon reaching high school age, her parents managed to get her into PRAMS, where she excelled in the infantry officer track at the school. However, upon her graduation, she was approached by an ONI agent who had been monitoring her progress and recruited her into the intelligence organization. After about of year of further training in counter-insurgency operations, Guillou, at the age of 20, was placed as a mole within Dmitri Zaytsev's insurrectionist cell on Biko, using her age to validate her cover story that she was a young woman who had lost faith in the UEG. Over the next six years, Kate managed to make her way up to a personal bodyguard position for Zaytsev himself, even briefly dating the Colonel and bearing him a son before, during the Battle of Biko in early 2526, she killed him in the chaos of the Covenant invasion before making her way off-world and reporting back to ONI. With the start of the war, however, Guillou, a Lieutenant by this point, was pulled from further field assignments and began a career as a liaison to Navy Special Weapons, turning her son over to the care of ONI, earning a degree in computer engineering, and returning to serve in her current role until her promotion to Commander. At this rank, she was assigned as a primary Aide to an Admiral overseeing many of Section Three's black projects, being groomed to helm some herself in the future. She got her chance with a promotion to Captain in late 2550, being assigned as an ONI supervisor to the Lethbridge testing grounds on Concord for the development of the VENATOR-class Mjolnir variant. As such, she was present for the Defense of Concord in 2551, managing to, with the help of two SPARTAN-II's and a team of Army Rangers, download the data stored in the complex's computers before burning it to the ground and evacuating the world, which the UNSC managed to hold due to the inexperience of the Sangheili Fleet Master in charge of the assault. After recovering from her injuries and the end of the war, she stepped down from her project lead position in ONI and took up an instructor position back at PRAMS, though still worked for the intelligence community on less intensive projects. After a few years as a professor, Guillou was posted as Commandant of the school.

Biography
Anna Masson was the youngest Civilian Governor of Sirona (taking the office at the age of 25), serving throughout the Human-Covenant War and into the Post-War Era. Little more than a puppet for much of the war itself, she was elected to replace the previous governor five years into the war, and she kept getting reelected due to the UNSC supporting her, as she was quite deferential to the military control. Additionally, she was popular among the general populace for the prosperity the world experienced, and, as such, had no difficulty staying in "power", however little she actually had. However, after the war, she had a chance to flex the experience she had gained by largely watching throughout the war and led her planet through the rough reconstruction period, this time earning her reelection for herself. As of 2558, she was still in power, though has mentioned plans to retire.

Biography
A UNSC "Smart" AI developed in 2549 by a lead UNSC Scientist on the Covenant, Axel was designed to combat the Covenant, translate their languages, and even work their technology. As a 5th generation of the AI, he was more stable than previous "Smart" AIs and managed to survive past the 7 years expected lifespan of AI, but had started showing signs of rampancy into his 9th year of life. However, by this point, Cortana had accessed the Domain. As such, Axel betrayed the UNSC and joined Cortana, hoping to extend his lifespan. Axel's hologram takes the appearance of a vaguely human shaped entity, made of swirling blue light, the numbers, dots, and symbols that cover many other AIs not just covering him, but being part of the 'cloud' of holography that creates his form.
