Project HERACLES, also known as SPARTAN-II Class IV, was a Naval Special Warfare project in the latter days of the Human-Covenant War. Running parallel to Gamma Company the group was the last class of the legendary SPARTAN-II’s though they were usually regarded as SII’s in name only. On the heels of it's predecessor HERACLES was formed largely out of desperation by Section III in an effort to churn out more SPARTAN-grade soldiers. Throughout the project's existence it was plagued by massive cuts in budget, a poor candidate pool, drastically reduced training time due to planetary invasion, rushed augmentation, and the misuse of the elements in the field, leading to the death of nearly all of the program’s members before they reached age 12. It was due to this the unit was dubbed "The Children’s Crusade" by many within ONI. The program was managed by Codename: HANGING TREE, an ONI Officer assigned to the detail as punishment, alongside Codename: PRINCE OF TIDES who served as head DI, and Dr. Johan Hansson who served as chief scientist after being reassigned from augmentation research and development.

Training

Shortly after the project's conception at the hands of an enigmatic Section III admiral in 2544, agents were dispatched to conduct various interviews and eventually abductions. Utilizing intercepted transmissions from agents sent to recruit conscripts for Gamma Company, HERACLES agents one more than one occasion would make their way to the orphanage prior to the arrival of the other agents and recruit the children before they could be acquired for the SPARTAN-III company. In addition, HERACLES also kidnapped several candidates from their homes and replaced them with flash clones as previous classes of SPARTAN-II's had, while also abducting candidates who had refused the offer to join Gamma Company.

Despite their multiple avenues of recruitment, HERACLES was forced to only conscript 75 trainees due to a cut in funding after several reserves of money used for the project were lost to Covenant glassings as well as 28 potential conscripts. In the end the class rounded out to 50 conscripts after an additional trainee was inducted into the program after he infiltrated a secure site attempting to rescue a candidate he witnessed being abducted. This thoroughly impressed both PRINCE OF TIDES and HANGING TREE, who conscripted him too as a result.

Brought to the relatively remote colony of New Scotland, the trainees of Class IV would arrive at Camp Preston Cole in the remote mountain ranges of the colony's smallest continent Anglesey. There, PRINCE OF TIDES and Alexander-A011, an extremely welcome last minute addition to their staff, would train the children to become Spartans.

With Alexander and PRINCE basing HERACLES training regimen around records of previous programs as well as A011's personal experience, on paper the fourth class of SPARTAN-II's would undergo the most extensive training of any Spartan group to date. In reality however, they would receive a good deal less.

From the beginning funding seemed to be at a steady decline, transportation and maintenance became exceedingly hard to come by. Effects were seen when training equipment began to break it was simply thrown away thanks to a lack of funds to repair or replace it. Despite the setbacks though, TIDES and Alexander pushed the children as hard as they could in both physical and intellectual fields, and much to their surprise the children responded by rising to the challenge, even those far off from the intended genetic markers.

Among the teams the children were divided into, Coral Team seemed to rise above the rest in training, with teams such as Khaki, Carnelian, and Slate battling it out for the position of second highest performing team, but always falling short of Coral who seemed to have a grasp on asymmetrical warfare despite a lack of training in the area at that point. Some speculate that Jordan-A111, another Alpha Company Spartan who served as an additional DI for several months in 2548, had something to do with it. A111 took a particular interest in the young team, and on several occasions provided them with additional training.

Due to budget constraints and a lack of resources, the equipment HERACLES's soldiers would be supplied with suffered the most. Originally hoping to secure suits from HAYABUSA Powered Assault Armor and Project HOPLITE, any chance of such n acquisition was lost within the first two years. As time continued on, much to the distress of the program staff, this situation only worsened, eventually leading it to be determined that only the top team would receive Semi-Powered Infiltration Armor Mark II, the runner up would receive Mark I, and the remaining teams would only receive ODST BDUs.

The slight payoff for this loss was that instead of the original, and highly dangerous SPARTAN-II Class I augmentations they were originally going to have to make do with, a modified version which posed significantly less danger due to improvements in the field of augmentation was acquired. While not as stable as the augmentations used by SPARTAN-III, this modified strain at the very least gave the children a significantly better chance at survival.

ODSTS

The standard BDU would be all that most of the Spartans would receive.

That time would never come to pass though, as in May of 2550 the Covenant discovered and invaded New Scotland. Despite the insistence of all those involved with the project, PRINCE OF TIDES, HANGING TREE, and Alexander especially, the program's mysterious command hidden within Section III ordered the immediate augmentation and deployment of all HERACLES assets. As a result of rushing the already dangerous augmentation procedure, 43.75% of the candidates either perished or were horrendously injured by the procedure, with two teams failing as a whole. Due to this staggering loss, and perhaps intimidation, HANGING TREE was able to convince HERACLES command to let him evacuate the children rather than hurl them into battle before they had recuperated.

In the chaos of the evacuation, several trainees were killed after attempting to protect their comrades. Shortly thereafter, despite having little to no training outside of basic warfare, the teams of HERACLES were split up and deployed on high risk operations. As predicted, only two teams received the limited sets of SPI made available to the program, and were selected on the basis they were the only four-man teams to survive augmentation without a casualty. As such Carnelian, and the ever successful Coral, took the Mark I and Mark II sets respectively.

Project GORGON

Hellspartan

Although their characteristic armour would not be seen until 2552, these 'Hellspartans' were nevertheless an incredible force to be reckoned with.

Although it only began to show results in the last two years of the Human-Covenant War, Project GORGON was actually started decades earlier in 2531. Founded alongside a new wave of bioaugmented units, GORGON was intended to expand on the successes of the original SPARTAN-II augmentations, specifically by spreading their effectiveness towards a wider demographic. While it would somewhat succeeded in this role, allowing later classes to have a much higher survival rate, a change in leadership would see its staff focusing towards boosting the capabilities of existing SPARTAN-IIs. This encouraged ONI to slowly strip the project of its funding thanks to the lack of results. To stay afloat, GORGON traded with fellow ONI units, lending its minds to others in exchange for a large sum of credits, or trading the few advancements it made for crucial pieces of technology. As they had few facilities capable of fabrication, select corporations were called in to assist with the manufacturing of their equipment.

By the time Project HERACLES was finishing up training for its candidates, GORGON's efforts had advanced to a point they were ready to test their theories. In exchange for some vital components and funding, the project was given a small detachment of eight SPARTAN-IIs for their purposes; they would only receive five of the supersoldiers thanks to casualties sustained when their base at New Scotland was attacked. Shipped to GORGON's main facility on Minister, they would immediately undergo invasive procedures involving gene therapy and cybernetic implants, boosting their strength, reflexes, endurance and recovery speed almost to the point where they could fight their MJOLNIR-clad peers on equal terms. Training was limited to psychological warfare and adapting to their new bodies, as GORGON did not have the manpower for further skill development. They were then paired with the GORGON variant of the MJOLNIR Mark IV, an offshoot of the EVA-class Mjolnir with a distinctive color-scheme and advanced materials. Unfortunately, the strain it left on the young candidates was unacceptable: three of the Spartans were killed during the second month of in-suit training, while the survivors were hospitalized for the rest of the month. As a result of these issues, the two Spartans were issued with a temporary ODST battle dress uniform before being sent into combat. Although they would not get their replacement suits until September 2552, they would earn the moniker of "Hellspartan" among marines, thanks to their aggression and gung-ho attitude towards combat.

EVALUATION: ONE OF OUR YOUNGEST CANDIDATES, BUT YOU’D NEVER BE ABLE TO TELL IT. THROUGH SOME MIRACLE [S-406] IS A 100% MATCH TO HALSEY’S ORIGINAL GENETIC PARAMETERS, AND IT SHOWS. DESPITE BEING RECKLESS, ARROGANT, AND GENERALLY DISLIKED BY THOSE OUTSIDE OF CARNELIAN ([S-483] NON-WITHSTANDING), HE HAS THE SKILL AND INTELLIGENCE TO BACK IT UP. EVEN THOUGH WE WERE UNABLE TO TRAIN THEM IN SPECIAL OPERATIONS BECAUSE OF YOU [EXPLITAVE STATEMENT REMOVED], HE SEEMED TO HAVE A GRASP ON THE TACTICS ALREADY. IN COMBAT HE IS BY DEFAULT A RIFLEMAN, BUT ALSO SERVES AS A MARKSMAN TO GREAT EFFECT.

POST-OP REPORT: DURING THE BATTLE OF GREGORIOS IN SEPTEMBER OF 2551, CARNELIAN, BEIGE, AND GARNET WERE DEPLOYED AS A PART OF OPERATION: WITCHES BREW AND TASKED WITH INITIATING COLE PROTOCOL AT SIX SEPARATE SITES AS WELL AS THE ELIMINATION OF A COVENANT HEIRARCH. AS CARNELIAN MOVED TO ELIMINATE THE HEIRARCH WITHIN THE PRE-HUMAN SITE IN THE PLANET’S ARCTIC NORTH, THEY WERE AMBUSHED BY THE HEIRARCH’S PERSONAL SPECIAL OPERATIONS DETACHMENT. DUE TO A MALFUNCTION IN THE SPI MARK I’S AGING HARDWARE [S-406]’S PHOTOREACTIVE PANELS SHORTED OUT AND ALLOWED ON OF THE COVENANT FORCES TO LOCATE AND KILL HIM WITH A BARRAGE OF PLASMA.

  • BIRTH DATE: 03/11/2539

EVALUATION: THE ODD MAN OUT AMONG SAGE’S MEMBERS TO SURVIVE AUGMENTATION, [S-407] IS NOTABLY COOL-HEADED AND OFTEN TO VOICE OF REASON TO HIS MORE TRIGGER HAPPY COMRADES. IN ADDITION TO EASILY BEING MARKSMAN QUALIFIED, [S-407] IS AMONG THE MOST INTELLECTUAL GIFTED OF THE PROJECT’S CANDIDATES, THAT SAID HE IS PRONE TO BOUTS OF DEPRESSION THAT WOULD’VE BEEN DISQUALIFYING IF TIMES WERE NOT SO DESPERATE. THE LOSS OF [S-422] IN AUGMENTATION IN PARTICULAR HAS HAD A GREAT EFFECT ON HIM, PSYCH TREATMENT HAS BEEN INCREASED AND [S-426] HAS TAKEN TO SEEING TO THE MATTER PERSONALLY, I CAN ONLY HOPE IT WILL BE ENOUGH.

POST-OP REPORT: DURING OPERATION: DYNAMO, SAGE WOULD BOARD A COVENANT CORVETTE AND JUST AS FEUDAL AND VICTOR-FOUR, COVENANT SPECIAL FORCES WERE ABOARD TO ATTEMPT AN AMBUSH. DESPITE SURVIVING THE INITIAL ENGAGEMENT, A SURVIVOR AMONG THE ENEMY FORCES ARMED A PAIR OF TYPE-1 PLASMA GRENADES AND ATTEMPTED TO CHARGE INTO SAGE [S-459]’S POSITION, [S-407] INSTANTLY TACKLED THE ELITE TO PROTECT [S-459], AND WAS KILLED BY INJURIES SUSTAINED IN THE FOLLOWING BLAST.

  • LOCATION: CLASSIFIED
  • STATUS: KIA
  • GENDER: M
  • BIRTHPLACE: LAS VEGAS, EARTH
  • BIRTH DATE: 08/21/2537

EVALUATION: HEADSTRONG, TENACIOUS, AND UNRELENTING, FOR AN EARTH-BORN, [S-426] HAS AN IRE TOWARDS TO COVENANT RIVALING THAT OF HIS ORPHANED SQUAD MATES, WHETHER OR NOT HE ADOPTED THIS AS A WAY TO BETTER RELATE TO HIS SUBORDINATES IS UNKNOWN, BUT IS CONSISTENT WITH HIS USUAL BEHAVIOR. THAT SAID ASIDE FROM HIS XENOPHOBIA, HE IS NEAR IMPOSSIBLE TO READ EMOTIONALLY. DESPITE BEING BELOVED BY THE REST OF SAGE AND ONE OF THE MOST COMPETENT LEADERS OF THE CLASS, HE IS THE SUBJECT OF DISTASTE AMONG THE REST OF THE CLASS FOR HIS UNFLINCHING BRUTALITY, EVEN WITH FELLOW TRAINEES. IN COMBAT, PREFERS CLOSE QUARTERS, BUT STAYS FLEXIBLE FOR THE SAKE OF HIS TEAM.

POST-OP REPORT: DURING OPERATION: DYNAMO, SAGE WAS TASKED WITH SEIZING A COVENANT CORVETTE IN CONJUNCTION WITH FEUDAL TEAM AND VICTOR-FOUR, AND THEN TO PROCEED TO A COVENANT SUPPLY STATION AND DESTROY IT. BY THE TIME THE SIERRAS REACHED THE STATION, SAGE HAD ALREADY LOST [S-407], AND SOON AFTER [S-459] WOULD BE KILLED AS WELL, AND [S-426] SEVERELY INJURED. VOLUNTEERING TO STAY BEHIND TO MANUALLY DETONATE THE HAVOK NUCLEAR DEVICE, [S-426] WAS KILLED INSTANTLY ON DETONATION.

  • LOCATION: CLASSIFIED
  • STATUS: KIA
  • GENDER: M
  • BIRTHPLACE: RASPER HILLS, CAMBER
  • BIRTH DATE: 12/08/2537

EVALUATION: [S-430] WAS ONE OF THE CANDIDATES ‘ACQUIRED’ FOLLOWING THEIR REFUSAL TO JOIN GAMMA COMPANY, THE REASON BEING HE WISHED TO STAY WITH HIS YOUNGER SISTER. WHILE INITIALLY VERY COMBATIVE FOLLOWING HIS CONSCRIPTION, [S-430] EVENTUALLY CONFORMED AND TOOK TO PROJECTING HIS BROTHERLY INSTINCTS ONTO HIS TEAMMATES. A SKILLED RIFLEMAN AND TACTICIAN, [S-430]’S ONLY DOWNFALL IS HIS ARROGANCE WHICH MORE THAN ONCE HAS BEEN HIS UNDOING, WITH [S-434] ONLY FUELING THESE TENDENCIES. HOWEVER, [S-501] DOES AN EXCEPTIONAL JOB KEEPING THIS IN CHECK. ALSO OF NOTE, [S-430] HAS SHOWN A GREAT DEAL OF UNDERSTANDING FOR POWER ARMOR SYSTEMS, AND AS SUCH HE IS TOP PICK FOR BEING ISSUED MJOLNIR IN SPITE OF HIS GENETIC MAKEUP, I CAN SAY WITH CONFIDENCE HE WOULD MAKE THE BEST USE OF IT.

POST-OP REPORT: DURING OPERATION: BORRADO ON EARTH, [S-430] AND KHAKI UNDER THE COMMAND OF [S-B042] AND WERE TASKED WITH WIPING ONI SHADOW BASE BEFORE THE COVENANT COULD ACCESS ANY CLASSIFIED MATERIALS OR INFORMATION. SHORTLY AFTER ARRIVAL A COVENANT LANCE SPEARHEADED BY A ZEALOT STRIKE TEAM ASSAULTED AND BREACHED THE BASE, KILLING MOST PERSONNEL. [S-B042] ORDERED KHAKI TO PROCEED WITH THE OBJECTIVE AND FACED THE STRIKE TEAM ALONE. AFTER WIPING THE DATABANKS, KHAKI DEFIED ORDERS AND [S-430] DONNED A STORED SUIT OF MJOLNIR MARK IV AND RESCUED [S-B042]. IN DOING SO, [S-430] ENGAGED DIRECTLY WITH THE ZEALOT LEADER (SEE ATTACHED FILE: CODENAME: XERXES) IN ORDER TO BUY [S-501] AND [S-434] TIME TO ESCAPE WITH THE HEAVILY INJURED [S-B042]. AFTER BEING MORTALLY WOUNDED [S-430] DIED BY ACTIVATING THE MJOLNIR’S FAIL-SAFE DETONATION IN A FAILED ATTEMPT TO KILL THE ZEALOT LEADER.

  • LOCATION: CLASSIFIED
  • STATUS: KIA
  • GENDER: F
  • BIRTHPLACE: B.O.B
  • BIRTH DATE: 09/15/2537

EVALUATION: [S-434] IS WITHOUT A DOUBT CHARLIE FOUR’S RESIDENT LOUDMOUTH; SHE IS VERBOSE, COCKY, AND DESPITE MULTIPLE DISCIPLINARY INCIDENTS HAS NO ISSUE TALKING BACK TO SUPERIORS. WERE SHE NOT SUCH AN EXCELLENT COMBATANT, AND WERE [S-430] NOT THE ONLY ONE TO BE THE EXCEPTION TO HER ATTITUDE, SHE MAY WELL HAVE BEEN WASHED OUT. HOWEVER, [S-434] IS ONE OF THE BEST CLOSE QUARTERS FIGHTERS OF THE CLASS, AND LISTENS TO [S-430] WITHOUT QUESTION, WHILE THE TWO BOTH INFLATE THE OTHER’S EGO. SHOWED A HIGH LEVEL OF ATTACHMENT TO [S-417], AND WAS HEAVILY IMPACTED BY HER DEATH IN AUGMENTATION, THOUGH PSYCH EVALS INDICATE [S-434] IS COPING ADEQUATELY THANKS IN LARGE PART TO [S-501]’S EFFORTS.

POST-OP REPORT: DURING OPERATION: SWEET LULLABY, [S-434] AND [S-501] WERE DEPLOYED ON DELTA SITE TO SCOUT OF POSSIBLE SAFE ZONES FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF AN OBSERVATION POST, AND POTENTIALLY A STAGING GROUND FOR QUARANTINE OPERATIONS. THE TWO WERE SUBSEQUENTLY ATTACKED BY A COVENANT REMNANT GROUP SEEKING TO ACTIVATE THE RING. AFTER NEARLY DEFEATING THEIR ATTACKERS, DELTA SITE’S AUTOMATED DEFENSES ENGAGED, ELIMINATING THE REMAINING COVENANT FORCES. [S-501] AND [S-434] CALLED FOR EVAC AND WHILST BOARDING THE PELICAN SENT TO PULL THEM OUT [S-434] WAS INCINERATED BY THE WEAPON OF AN AGGRESSOR SENTINEL.

  • LOCATION: CLASSIFIED
  • STATUS: KIA
  • GENDER: M
  • BIRTHPLACE: MASTERSON STATION, IO
  • BIRTH DATE: 11/11/2537

EVALUATION: LEVEL-HEADED, CHARISMATIC, AND A SKILLED COMBATANT, [S-440] IS A BORN LEADER AND PERHAPS THE ONLY MEMBER OF THE PROJECT WHO COULD WRANGLE THE LIKES OF CARNELIAN INTO AN EFFECTIVE FIGHTING FORCE. EARLY ON HE SET HIMSELF APART FROM THE OTHERS, NOT JUST BECAUSE HE ACTUALLY FIT THE GENETIC CRITERIA BY A SAFE MARGIN BUT ALSO BECAUSE HE QUICKLY RALLIED A FORCE OF OTHER TRAINEES AND ATTEMPTED ESCAPE. SCORING HIGH MARKS IN COMBAT TRAINING AS WELL AS IN THE CLASSROOM, [S-440] HAS BECOME ONE OF HERACLES’ TOP SPARTANS AND IN DOING SO BROUGHT HIS TEAM TO ONE OF THE TOP POSITIONS IN THE CLASS, GRANTING THEM ACCESS TO SPI MARK I ARMOR AS OPPOSED TO THE ODST ARMOR UTILIZED BY THE MAJORITY OF THE CLASS. [S-440]’S GREAT FLAW IS A TENDENCY TOWARDS RATIONAL ACTION AFTER SUFFERING LOSSES [NOTE: HAD THEY BEEN GIVEN THE TWO ADDITIONAL YEARS OF TRAINING THEY NEEDED THIS COULD HAVE BEEN CORRECTED], WHICH HAS LED TO SEVERAL INCIDENTS OF CARNELIAN LOSING ENGAGEMENTS THEY EASILY SHOULD’VE PREVAILED IN. IN COMBAT [S-440] PREFERS TO FIGHT IN CLOSE TO MID-RANGE MUCH LIKE THE REST OF HIS TEAM, AND AFTER-ACTION REPORTS INDICATE THAT HIS NATURAL AGILITY HAS SERVED HIM ESPECIALLY WELL IN THE FORMER.

POST-OP REPORT: DURING THE BATTLE OF GREGORIOS IN SEPTEMBER OF 2551, CARNELIAN, BEIGE, AND GARNET WERE DEPLOYED AS A PART OF OPERATION: WITCHES BREW AND TASKED WITH INITIATING COLE PROTOCOL AT SIX SEPARATE SITES AS WELL AS THE ELIMINATION OF A COVENANT HEIRARCH. AS CARNELIAN MOVED TO ELIMINATE THE HEIRARCH WITHIN THE PRE-HUMAN SITE IN THE PLANET’S ARCTIC NORTH, THEY WERE AMBUSHED BY THE HEIRARCH’S PERSONAL SPECIAL OPERATIONS DETACHMENT. DURING THE FIGHTING [S-440] BROKE FORMATION AFTER [S-406] WAS KILLED BY PLASMA FIRE AND SUBSEQUENTLY WAS KILLED IN A SIMILAR FASHION.

EVALUATION: [S-452] IS NOTHING SHORT OF REMARKABLE. LOYAL, AN EFFECTIVE COMBATANT, BRAVE THOUGH A BIT BOOKISH, AND RIVALED ONLY BY [S-489] IN TERMS OF SHEER INTELLIGENCE. WHERE [S-477] LEAD, AND [S-470] SCOUTED, [S-452] WAS THE MUSCLE BEHIND PALE TEAM. A BRILLIANT CLOSE QUARTERS FIGHTER, HIGH SCORING MARKSMAN, AND WELL VERSED WITH ALL MANNER OF WEAPON HUMAN AND ALIEN ALIKE.[S-452] PREFERS DIRECT ASSAULT NOT ONLY DUE TO HIS TALENT AT WARFIGHTING, BUT ALSO TO DIVERT ATTENTION FROM HIS COMRADES IN ORDER TO SECURE THEIR SAFETY.

ADDENDUM-001: FOLLOWING THE DEATH OF [S-477] IN OPERATION: PETULANT SWARM, [S-452] HAS BEEN TRANSFERRED TO CODENAME: STORMBORN’S PERSONAL STRIKE UNIT JESTER TEAM.

POST-OP REPORT: I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO WRITE THIS, I CAN HARDLY BEAR TO PUT THIS TO WORDS. JESTER TEAM WAS DISPATCHED ON OPERATION: TRUE LIES BY CODENAME: STORMBORN, THE OBJECTIVE OF WHICH WAS TO TERMINATE [S-501] AND HIS SMALL CELL OF REBELS. THEY PITTED TWO OF MINE AGAINST ONE ANOTHER, SOMETHING THAT WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED HAD CODENAME: SICARIO DEPLOYED [S-501] WITH ANY REGARD FOR MY EXPRESS CONDEMNATION, AND WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED HAD I MYSELF DONE THE JOB. [S-452], AND THE REST OF JESTER TEAM WERE SUCCESSFULLY AMBUSHED BY [S-501], WITH ALL BUT [S-452] BEING KILLED BY A VARIETY OF IED’S AND THE USE OF A W/AV M6 G/GNR. [S-452] WAS ABLE TO DIRECTLY ENGAGE [S-501], HOWEVER [S-501], UTILIZING ARMOR RESTRAINT DEVICE WAS ABLE TO SUBDUE [S-452]. THE TWO ENGAGED IN A HEATED DEBATE, IN WHICH [S-501] REFUSED TO KILL [S-452] AND ATTEMPTED TO LEAVE HIM UNHARMED, HOWEVER [S-452] ATTEMPTED TO CALL IN AN AIR STRIKE ON THEIR POSITION. AS A RESULT, [S-501] KILLED [S-452] IN ORDER TO PROTECT HIS COMRADES

EVALUATION: AS VERBOSE AS SHE IS AGGRESSIVE, [S-459] HEALTHILY COMPLIMENTS [S-426]’S OWN AGGRESSION AND OFTEN IS THE ID TO [S-407]’S EGO. ORIGINALLY AN OUTLIER AMONG THE CHARLIE FOURS AS MOST WERE PUT OFF BY HER SHEER VOLUME, [S-459] FOUND A COMPANION IN [S-426] AND HAS WORKED WITH HIM EVER SINCE.

EVALUATION: [S-470], UNLIKE HIS TWO TEAMMATES WHO SURVIVED AUGMENTATION, IS NOT EXTREMELY REMARKABLE. [S-470] WAS ONE OF SEVERAL CANDIDATES WHO INITIALLY HAD BEEN OFFERED PLACEMENT IN SPARTAN-III GAMMA, BUT REFUSED. WHERE OTHERS TURNED IT DOWN TO PROTECT SIBLINGS, OR FOR HOPE OF FINDING A FAMILY, [S-470] SEEMINGLY WAS SIMPLY AFRAID OF FACING THE COVENANT. HIS INTELLIGENCE AND COMBAT SCORES ARE AVERAGE AT BEST, AND THE ONLY AREA HE TRULY EXCELS IN IS RECONNAISSANCE. A QUIET, AND AS SUGGESTED BY HIS REASONING FOR TURNING DOWN ENROLLMENT IN GAMMA, QUITE FEARFUL BOY. [S-470] SEEMED TO TAKE TO WANDERING AND EXPLORING TO RELIEVE HIS ANXIETIES, SOMETHING [S-477] CAPITALIZED ON AND MOLDED [S-470] INTO AN EFFECTIVE SCOUT, IN THE PROCESS MAKING HIM FAR MORE BOLD AND AN OVERALL ACCEPTABLE SPARTAN. THAT SAID, HE SHOULD BE CLOSELY MONITORED AND SUBJECT TO REGULAR EVALUATION BY AN APPROVED PSYCHIATRIST, JUST TO BE SURE.

ADDENDUM-001: DURING OPERATION: PETULANT SWARM, [S-470] WAS OVERRUN AND INJURED BY A LARGE SWARM OF YANME’E, THE EVENT PUT [S-470] INTO A STATE OF SHOCK FOR SEVERAL DAYS, AND ONLY SURVIVED THANKS TO THE SELF-SACRIFICE OF [S-477]. UPON RETURNING TO A CONSCIOUS STATE HE WAS INFORMED OF [S-477]’S DEATH, AND PROCEEDED TO SUFFER A MENTAL BREAKDOWN. [S-470] SPENT TWO YEARS RECUPERATING, ADDRESSING A NUMBER OF ISSUES IN ADDITION TO A NEAR CRIPPLING FEAR OF YANME’E. ONCE THESE HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED AND HE IS CLEARED FOR RELEASE, HE IS TO BE TRANSFERRED TO THE SECURITY ATTACHE FOR THE CIVILIAN EXPLORATORY OPERATION THE NOSTROMO INITIATIVE. THE BOY PROVED HIMSELF DURING THE WAR, HE FOUGHT BETTER THAN I COULD HAVE EVER IMAGINED, THEN THEY BROKE HIM BY SENDING PALE IN BLIND. THE LEAST I CAN HAVE HIM PUT SOMEWHERE HE’LL THRIVE.

ADDENDUM-002: [S-470] HAS BEEN WITH FIRETEAM MAGELLAN, THE SECURITY DETAIL FOR THE NOSTROMO INITIATIVE'S EXPLORATORY VESSEL STRANGE HAPPENINGS FOR THREE YEARS AS OF THIS ADDENDUM. PSYCHE REPORTS SUGGEST HE IS DOING EXCEPTIONALLY WELL, WELL ENOUGH THAT THE NEWS OF [S-452]’S LOSS DID NOT BREAK HIM. HE HAS ENTERED A DEPRESSIVE STATE, BUT WITH REGULAR SESSIONS WITH THE HAPPENING’S PSYCHIATRIST, AND REGULAR CHANCES TO GO EXPLORING, RECOVERY IS EXPECTED.

  • STATUS: KIA
  • GENDER: F
  • BIRTHPLACE: CORSCO, ALLUVION
  • BIRTH DATE: 10/21/2536

EVALUATION: [S-477] FROM THE START DISTINGUISHED HERSELF AS A LEADER AMONG HER CONTEMPORARIES, OFTEN CLASHING WITH THE LIKES OF [S-422] AND [S-440] FOR COMMAND PRE-SORTING INTO TEAMS. AMONG PALE, SHE WAS THE OBVIOUS CHOICE FOR LEADERSHIP, AND WAS PARTICULARLY CLOSE WITH [S-476], HER TWIN BROTHER. SMART, DEADLY, COMPASSIONATE, EMPATHETIC, AND EASILY CAPABLE OF UTILIZING HER TEAMMATES TO OPTIMIZE TEAM PERFORMANCE, [S-452] AND [S-470] QUICKLY BECAME ENDEARED TO THEIR TEAM LEADER AS WELL. FOLLOWING [S-476]’S DEATH IN AUGMENTATIONS, [S-477]’S PSYCHE REPORTS HAVE BEGUN TO INCREASINGLY SHOW DISILLUSIONMENT WITH THE UNSC AS A WHOLE. THIS SHOULD BE MONITORED, BUT FOR NOW SHE SEEMS FULLY DEDICATED TO FIGHTING THE COVENANT FOR THE SAKE OF HUMANITY.

POST-OP REPORT: DURING OPERATION: PETULANT SWARM, PALE TEAM WAS DISPATCHED TO ELIMINATE WHAT WAS BELIEVED TO BE A MINOR YANME’E HIVE ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF [REDACTED], URNA. UPON DESCENDING INTO THE HIVE AND ENCOUNTERING FIERCE RESISTANCE, PALE TEAM DISCOVERED IT WAS FAR LARGER THAN ANTICIPATED. [S-477], DISREGARDING HER OWN SAFETY BROKE COVER TO RESCUE [S-470] FROM A YANME’E SWARM AND WAS INJURED. WITH PALE IN DANGER OF BEING OVERRUN, AND HER INJURIES TOO GREAT TO ALLOW HER TO ESCAPE, [S-477] COMMANDED [S-452] TO RETREAT WITH A NEAR CATATONIC [S-470]. RELUCTANTLY COMPLYING, [S-452] ESCAPED WHILE [S-477] DELAYED THE ENEMY AS LONG AS POSSIBLE BEFORE DETONATING THE C-7 EXPLOSIVES MEANT TO DESTROY THE HIVE, DYING INSTANTLY. SHORTLY THEREAFTER INTERNAL INVESTIGATIONS UNIT 419 WAS DEPLOYED TO THE AREA AND SUCCESSFULLY ERADICATED THE HIVE.

PETTY OFFICER SECOND CLASS

  • FULL NAME: DRAKE, JASON
  • SERVICE #: 483
  • UNIT: NAVSPECWAR/HERACLES DETACHMENT/CARNELIAN TEAM
  • ENLISTMENT DATE: CLASSIFIED
  • LOCATION: CLASSIFIED
  • STATUS: KIA
  • GENDER: M
  • BIRTHPLACE: PARKERS REST, ALGOLIS
  • BIRTH DATE: 08/16/2538

EVALUATION: WHERE [S-440] IS CALM BUT SLIGHTLY IMPULSIVE [S-483] IS AGGRESSIVE BUT DISCIPLINED, AND IT’S THROUGH THAT DISCIPLINE HE BALANCES OUT [S-440]. WHILE HE LACKS [S-440]’S AGILITY, [S-483] MAKES UP FOR IT WITH RAW STRENGTH AND UNRELENTING AGGRESSION WHICH ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS HAS LED TO ALTERCATIONS WITH DI’S AND INNUMERABLE OTHERS WITH FELLOW TRAINEES, PARTICULARLY [S-400] AND [S-434]. QUITE FRANKLY IF IT WEREN’T FOR [S-440] BEING THE ONLY PERSON TO ACTUALLY HAVE SOME SORT OF CONTROL OVER HIM (WHICH ONLY OCCURRED ‘’AFTER’’ AN ALTERCATION), WE LIKELY WOULD’VE HAD TO WASH HIM OUT. AMONG CARNELIAN HE’S A BIT OF AN OUTSIDER AND WHILE BEHAVIORAL TENDENCIES WOULD SUGGEST HE AND [S-406] WOULD GET ALONG WELL, THE TWO ARE CONSTANTLY AT ODDS, THOUGH HIS FRIENDSHIP WITH [S-489] IS STABLE AS IS HIS RESPECT FOR [S-440]. WHILE HE LACKS [S-440]’S AGILITY, [S-483] MAKES UP FOR IT WITH SHEER FEROCITY AND BRUTAL EFFICIENCY, AND IS EASILY ONE OF THE PROJECT’S TOP FIGHTERS, IN CQC ESPECIALLY, THOUGH HE’S ALSO QUITE THE MARKSMAN AND LOVES A GOOD EXPLOSION. IN THE FIELD HE’S CARNELIAN’S POINT-MAN, BUT OFTEN PULLS DOUBLE DUTY WITH EXPLOSIVES, IN ADDITION TO KEEPING [S-440]’S EMOTIONS IN CHECK.

POST-OP REPORT: DURING THE BATTLE OF GREGORIOS IN SEPTEMBER OF 2551, CARNELIAN, BEIGE, AND GARNET WERE DEPLOYED AS A PART OF OPERATION: WITCHES BREW AND TASKED WITH INITIATING COLE PROTOCOL AT SIX SEPARATE SITES AS WELL AS THE ELIMINATION OF A COVENANT HEIRARCH. AS CARNELIAN MOVED TO ELIMINATE THE HEIRARCH WITHIN THE PRE-HUMAN SITE IN THE PLANET’S ARCTIC NORTH, THEY WERE AMBUSHED BY THE HEIRARCH’S PERSONAL SPECIAL OPERATIONS DETACHMENT. AFTER [S-440] AND [S-406] WERE KILLED, [S-483] TOOK CONTROL OF THE SITUATION TO THE BEST OF HIS ABILITY, MAKING A STAND AGAINST CARNELIAN’S AMBUSHERS AND HOLDING THEM LONG ENOUGH FOR [S-489] TO ESCAPE THE TRAP AND MAKE HIS WAY TO THE TARGET. SHORTLY THEREAFTER [S-483] WAS RUN THROUGH BY AN ENERGY SWORD AND KILLED.

  • LOCATION: CLASSIFIED
  • STATUS: KIA
  • GENDER: M
  • BIRTHPLACE: HOLARRAN, CAMBER
  • BIRTH DATE: 07/19/2539

EVALUATION: INCREDIBLY SMART, PERHAPS THE BRIGHTEST IN THE PROJECT ITSELF (INCLUDING STAFF) [S-489] WAS FOUND SITTING WIDE AWAKE ON HIS ORPHANAGE COT WHEN ACQUISITION AGENTS CAME FOR HIM, HE NOT ONLY WENT WITH THEM WILLINGLY BUT CORRECTLY ASSUMED THEY WERE OFFICE OF NAVAL INTELLIGENCE AND BASED ON RUMORS HE HAD HEARD, DEDUCED THEY WERE TAKING HIM TO MAKE HIM A SPARTAN. THIS WAS THE FIRST OF MANY ASTONISHING FEATS OF INTELLIGENCE IN [S-489]’S RECORD, WHICH HE ACHIEVED WHILE ALSO BECOMING A FIERCE COMBATANT WITH A PENCHANT FOR LONG TO MID-RANGE COMBAT AS WELL AS EXPLOSIVES, IN ADDITION TO THE TOP ELECTRONIC WARFARE OPERATOR IN THE PROJECT HANDS DOWN. WITHIN CARNELIAN [S-489] SERVES AS A NEUTRALIZER TO BOTH [S-483]’S AND [S-406]’S FLARING TEMPERS, AND AS AN ADAMANT SUPPORTER OF [S-440]’S LEADERSHIP. OUT OF THE ENTIRE TEAM DISPLAYS THE MOST LOYALTY TO THE UNSC AND CAN BE COUNTED ON TO KEEP HIS TEAMMATES LOYAL AS WELL.

POST-OP REPORT: DURING THE BATTLE OF GREGORIOS IN SEPTEMBER OF 2551, CARNELIAN, BEIGE, AND GARNET WERE DEPLOYED AS A PART OF OPERATION: WITCHES BREW AND TASKED WITH INITIATING COLE PROTOCOL AT SIX SEPARATE SITES AS WELL AS THE ELIMINATION OF A COVENANT HEIRARCH. AS CARNELIAN MOVED TO ELIMINATE THE HEIRARCH WITHIN THE PRE-HUMAN SITE IN THE PLANET’S ARCTIC NORTH, THEY WERE AMBUSHED BY THE HEIRARCH’S PERSONAL SPECIAL OPERATIONS DETACHMENT.

  • UNIT: NAVSPECWAR/SILVER TEAM
  • ENLISTMENT DATE: CLASSIFIED
  • LOCATION: CLASSIFIED
  • STATUS: KIA
  • GENDER: M
  • BIRTHPLACE: KUIPER, CIRCUMSTANCE
  • BIRTH DATE: 12/22/2538

EVALUATION: EXPLOITATIVE, MANIPULATIVE, SELF-ENTITLED. THOSE ARE THE WORDS WHICH THE INSTRUCTORS HAVE GIVEN TO [S-497]. LOUD-MOUTHED, [S-497] HAS A TENDENCY TO BRAG ABOUT HIS ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND TAUNT HIS ENEMIES, COMING OFF AS ANNOYING TO HIS TEAMMATES. DESPITE THIS, THE SUBJECT HAS EXPERIENCED A KNACK OF GETTING INTO PEOPLE'S HEADS - IT SEEMS HE SPENDS TIME RESEARCHING THE PEOPLE HE WILL BE WORKING WITH, WHICH IS SURPRISING FOR THIS INDIVIDUAL. COWARDLY AT TIMES, ALTHOUGH WILL FOLLOW ALL ORDERS TO THE LETTER << BEING PAIRED WITH [S-458] HAS BROUGHT OUT A WORTHWHILE QUALITY IN HIM. A DECENT FIGHTER, ALTHOUGH YOU WOULDN'T KNOW IT BECAUSE THE SUBJECT IS EXTREMELY CHATTY - COMPLAINS ABOUT THE LOCAL CONDITIONS, THE PEOPLE THAT'S ALONGSIDE HIM, AND HOW SUPERIOR HE IS TO THEM ALL. THIS NEEDS TO GET UNDER CONTROL - WE CAN'T HAVE ANYONE REVEALING CLASSIFIED INFORMATION ABOUT ONI OR HERACLES.

POST-OP REPORT: DURING THE ASSAULT ON NEW BELGRADE, SILVER TEAM WAS DIVIDED INTO THREE UNITS, WITH [S-497'S] UNIT, TEAM BRAVO, ASSIGNED TO HELP THE UNSC FORCES BREAK THROUGH THE REBEL FORTIFICATIONS. PROVIDING FIRE SUPPORT FROM A SECURE LOCATION, [S-497] WAS HIT BY AN ANTI-TANK ROUND THAT MORTALLY WOUNDED HIM. A SECOND SPARTAN WOULD BE KILLED AFTERWARDS WHILST ATTEMPTING TO DETONATE HIS ARMOUR. DESPITE MORALE BECOMING AN ISSUE RESULTING IN INCREASED CASUALTIES, UNSC FORCES MANAGED TO ACQUIRE THE REMAINS BEFORE THE INSURRECTIONISTS COULD ARRIVE.

BashirInnie

PETTY OFFICER SECOND CLASS

  • FULL NAME: BASHIR
  • SERVICE #: 501
  • UNIT: NAVSPECWAR/HERACLES DETACHMENT/KHAKI TEAM
  • ENLISTMENT DATE: CLASSIFIED
  • LOCATION: CLASSIFIED
  • STATUS: AWOL
  • GENDER: M
  • BIRTHPLACE: UNKNOWN, SPECULATED TO BE ALGOLIS
  • BIRTH DATE: UNKNOWN, SPECULATED TO BE LATE 2538 TO EARLY 2539

EVALUATION: [S-501] WAS A FLUKE, WHEN [S-430] WAS BEING TAKEN ON ALGOLIS [S-501] OBSERVED THE ACT AND NOT ONLY SUCCESSFULLY TAILED THE OPERATIVES, BUT WAS ABLE TO BOARD THE ALBATROSS MEANT TO TAKE THEM OFF WORLD BEFORE BEING DISCOVERED. PERSONALLY, I WAS IMPRESSED BY THE DISPLAY OF TALENT, AND AFTER A QUICK SEARCH OF RECORDS REVEALED THE BOY TO BE A LITERAL NO ONE, AND AN INTERVIEW CONFIRMING HE HAD BEEN ORPHANED SINCE BIRTH, I ELECTED TO INDUCT HIM INTO THE PROJECT. [S-501], AS HIS INFILTRATION ON ALGOLIS SUGGESTED, PROVED TO BE THE COMPANY’S TOP INFILTRATOR, AND IS EXCEPTIONALLY SKILLED IN GUERRILLA WARFARE. IN ADDITION HE HAS SHOWN GREAT CONVICTION TO HIS MORALS, AND NOT ONLY KEEPS [S-434] AND [S-430]’S EGOS IN CHECK, BUT KEEPS MORALE FOR CHARLIE FOUR AS A WHOLE HIGH. MY ONLY SUGGESTION IS THAT REGARDLESS OF THE SITUATION, PLACING [S-501] ON BLACK OPS MISSIONS WOULD BE INADVISABLE GIVEN THE SENSE OF MORALITY HARDWIRED INTO HIM THAT PROVED IMPOSSIBLE TO BEND IN THE TIME GIVEN TO TRAIN CHARLIE FOUR.

ADDENDUM-001: DESPITE MY ADVISEMENT, FOLLOWING OPERATION: SWEET LULLABY IN 2553, [S-501] WAS IMMEDIATELY PLUCKED BY CODENAME: SICARIO FOR BLACK OPS. HE WAS TASKED WITH THE ASSASSINATION OF A JOURNALIST PLANNING TO PUBLISH MATERIAL CONCERNING ONE OF THE PROJECT: JAVELINS. ONCE IN THE FIELD [S-501] NOT ONLY FAILED TO COMPLY, BUT INSTEAD ELECTED TO PROTECT THE MAN AND HIS FAMILY. IN THE FOLLOWING DAYS [S-510] NON-LETHALLY DISPATCHED TWO SEPARATE HIT SQUADS AND SUCCESSFULLY FORCED THE JOURNALIST AND HIS FAMILY INTO HIDING. FROM THERE [S-501] HAS VANISHED.

ADDENDUM-002: A YEAR LATER [S-501] VENEZIA AND BEGAN WORKING SECURITY FOR AN ORBITAL BROADCAST STATION PREACHING NON-VIOLENT SECESSIONIST PROPAGANDA. FIRETEAM MAAT WAS FORMED, MYSELF INCLUDED IN ITS COMPOSITION. THE MISSION WAS A SUCCESS.

ADDENDUM-003: LAST YEAR [S-501], HAVING SOMEHOW SURVIVED, AND KILLED THE WHOLE OF GEORGE 8-2 AFTER THE TEAM MISTAKENLY KILLED THE FAMILY THAT APPARENTLY HAD BEEN HARBORING HIM FOR SOME TIME. JESTER TEAM WAS TASKED WITH HIS ELIMINATION, WHICH INCLUDED [S-452], FORMERLY A CLOSE FRIEND OF [S-501], IN ITS COMPOSITION. ALL SPARTANS WERE KILLED AND [S-501] HAS BEGUN TO GROW TO PROMINENCE IN THE INSURRECTIONIST COMMUNITY AS ‘THE VIPER OF VENEZIA’, ADVOCATING FOR A "MORE HONORABLE INSURGENCY" AMONG OTHER THINGS, WHICH HAS GARNERED HIM A FOLLOWING AMONG YOUNG IDEALISTS. HE NEEDS TO BE TAKEN CARE OF, SOON.
