"I don't know how to quit and that's what it takes to be a Spartan."
― Nicoline commenting on her Spartan-level resolve.
Nicoline Folasade, known to her friends as Nicole, is a former SPARTAN-IIIDelta Company prospect, a UNSC Navy officer cadet, and a SPARTAN-IV applicant. An unfulfilled childhood promise of Spartanhood has motivated her career and life decisions ever since.
Orphaned by the glassing of New Jerusalem, Nicoline was approached by recruiters for the SPARTAN-III Program but was ultimately not acquired. Falling back on her dead parents' military background, she worked to enroll in Patuxent River Academy of Military Science. At PRAMS, she displayed an unmatched determination to excel that led to recruitment into her school's marksmanship team and an accelerated officer track.
A chance encounter with Zachariah-D111 opened her back up to the world of the SPARTAN-IIIs and developed into a mutual though restricted infatuation due to their vastly different career paths. Now with a potential door into the exclusive Spartan community, Nicoline may get to become the Spartan she was destined to become in the near future. But she must survive the Created Crisis first.
