- "They're drawing a line between us. That's why they're doing all this, these missions, the rankings! And you're either on one side of that line or you're on the other. This is a selection process. I don't know for what, but if you're not at the top of that board, you're not worth anything to [the Director]. You'd better hurry up and figure out what side of that line you're on...before they figure it out for you."

The Hunt For the Director
I: The Mercenary, the Spy, and the Revolution
|0244 Hours, December 9, 2551 (UNSC Military Calendar), aboard the UNSC Mother of Invention, in orbit above planet Eridanus II, Eridanus system|
<Agent_Texas> Three months ago, the UNSC subcommittee kidnapped Penny and brought him in to cover up.
<Agent_Texas> He's digging up any information he can on us so that ONI can catch up on their project. And he might even be looking to the director's AIs; I don't know.
<Agent_Texas> So, we could tell them their cover's been blown and propose an exchange, but you know how the UNSC deals with things.
<Agent_California> So... we stop him.
<Agent_Texas> It could get messy.
<Agent_Wyoming> It already got messy.
* Agent_Texas chuckles.
<Agent_Texas> Yeah, just a bit.
<Agent_Texas> I say we make this guy disappear and go rescue Penny. Clean and simple.
<Agent_California> Anyone have a plan?
<Agent_Wyoming> Explosive decompression?
<Agent_Texas> We're not going to kill him..
<Agent_Texas> Just make him disappear for a while.
<Agent_Texas> We can make him resurface if we need.
<Agent_Texas> Anyway, let's go find Penny.
<Agent_Texas> We'll dig for clues in her room to see what happened to her.
<Agent_Texas> Maybe this guy left some trails.
* Agent_Wyoming gleefully retrieves rifle.
<Agent_Texas> This is going to be a low-level op, Wyoming.
<Agent_Texas> Not even the director should know.
<Agent_Texas> If he does, we'll be set back quite a while.
<Agent_Wyoming> Aw. Then may I suggest digging around in the data in his helmet recorder?
<Agent_Texas> There's a start.
<Agent_Texas> Let's do it.
* Agent_Wyoming returns to Carolina's room.
<Agent_Wyoming> This is where we left it, if I recall correctly.
* Agent_Texas picks up the helmet.
<Agent_Texas> I suppose Carolina won't mind if I use her data scanner.
* Agent_Texas takes the scanner off the table and inserts the helmet chip into it.
<Agent_Texas> Let's go back to the recovery bay.
* Agent_Texas fiddles with a few settings on the scanner and pores over the data until reaching the recovery bay.
<Agent_Texas> Oh look, our captive's coming around.
<Agent_Texas> Now listen.
<Agent_Texas> We're going to find Penny.
<Agent_Texas> So sit tight and be good.
<Agent_Texas> You cause any trouble, we'll deal with you.
<Agent_Texas> Actually, I'll deal with you, which is worse.
<Agent_Wyoming> You'll soon learn, mate. You're either with us, or Texas hamstrings you.
<Agent_Texas> If I come back with a dead body, you'll be in for a world of hurt.
<Agent_Texas> So you'd better hope she's alive.
<Agent_Texas> Catch you later.
II: Of Ambitions and Betrayal
|2352 Hours, December 10, 2551 (UNSC Military Calendar), aboard the UNSC Mother of Invention, unknown system|
<Agent_Texas> Hey, North.
<Agent_North> Seen South anywhere?
<Agent_Texas> No, I haven't.
<Agent_Texas> Aren't you supposed to be sleeping?
<Agent_North> You mean on that drug York told everyone to take?
<Agent_Texas> Yeah. Keeps you under until you've slept for exactly 8 hours. Helps the augmentations take effect properly.
<Agent_Texas> Carolina's under right now. It'll help her heal faster too.
<Agent_North> I dunno...I'm not sure I like the idea of being unable to wake up on my own.
<Agent_Texas> We'll all need the edge once we find the director.
<Agent_Texas> York's got a list of everyone who's already taken it. South's name wasn't on it.
<Agent_Texas> Maybe she didn't know. She spends a lot of time on her own these days.
* Agent_California approaches Tex and North
<Agent_Texas> Hey, Cal.
<Agent_North> Damn. I'd better find South, give her the news
* Agent_North walks off
<Agent_Texas> Cal, where have you been?
* Agent_North contacts the team
<Agent_Texas> (COM) What is it, North?
<Agent_North> (COM) Guys, South isn't responding, something's up.
<Agent_Texas> (COM) Damn.
<Agent_Texas> Cal, you seen South?
<Agent_Texas> You okay?
<Agent_California> I haven't seen South, I've been resting. Today's the big day, isn't it?
<Agent_Texas> You seem a little distracted, Cal.
<Agent_California> It's just... the change of command. It's making me think.
<Agent_North> (COM) Texas, we've got transponders going down
* Agent_Texas frowns.
<Agent_Texas> Something's not right.
<Agent_Texas> (COM) Okay. I'm assuming command of the Freelancer unit until Carolina's back on her feet.
<Agent_Texas> (COM) Calling all active Freelancers, everyone meet me in the debriefing room, copy?
<Agent_North> (COM) Maine, is that you?
<Agent_Texas> (COM) North, everything okay?
<Agent_Texas> (COM) North?
<Agent_Texas> (COM) What's going on?
<Agent_North> (COM) Tex, it's Maine, something's up with him
<Agent_Texas> (COM) On my way.
III: The Lost Freelancer
|2214 Hours, December 12, 2551 (UNSC Military Calendar), aboard the UNSC Mother of Invention, unknown system|
<Agent_Texas> I'm not so sure if it was a good idea to continue these augmentations.
<Agent_Texas> Everyone's knocked out again.
<Agent_Texas> Well, mostly.
<Agent_Texas> And this time we've got even less Freelancers.
* Agent_Wyoming enters Mother of Invention's bridge.
<Agent_Texas> Not to mention South and Cal are against us.
<Agent_Texas> Wyoming, anything to report?
<Agent_Wyoming> Nothing on the bridge.
<Agent_Texas> Maine, how you feeling?
<Agent_Texas> All recovered from the removal process?
* Agent_Maine lets out a silent 'fine'
<Agent_Wyoming> I'll come down to join you. Be down in a moment.
<Agent_Texas> No Wyoming, you stay on the bridge.
<Agent_Wyoming> All right.
<Agent_Texas> Maine, make sure the barracks are well-guarded. We don't want any more Freelancers assassinated.
<Agent_Texas> Both of you, report in on regular intervals.
<Agent_Wyoming> Copy. Sync.
* Agent_Maine begins his way to the barracks, patiently checking his weapons.
* Agent_Texas stumbles at a sudden explosion.
<Agent_Texas> What the hell?
<Agent_Texas> Wyoming, what was that?
<Agent_Wyoming> Tex, I believe we have visitors.
<Agent_Texas> I'm on my way.
<Agent_Wyoming> They have boarding craft.
<Agent_Wyoming> We're going to start losing systems . . .
* Assault soars towards the Mother of Invention in two Pelican dropships.
* Agent_Wyoming plugs in Gamma.
<Agent_Texas> Alright Maine, load up.
* Agent_Maine growls and takes off the Brute Shot off his back.
<Agent_Texas> We've got a situation in the hangar!
<Agent_Texas> Wyoming, stay the bridge.
* Agent_Maine begins sprinting.
<Agent_Wyoming> Blast it.
<Agent_Texas> Use the weapons systems and hold off the ships.
<Agent_Texas> Maine, meet me at hangar 4.
<Agent_Wyoming> Gamma, start the fireworks.
<Agent_South> Well, this sure looks like it's gonna be fun.
IV: Broken Families
|0924 Hours, December 15, 2551, inside hidden experimental facility, exact location unknown|
<Agent_South> You wanted to see me, Director?
<Director_Church> Yes, I have something to tell you, Agent South.
<Agent_South> Well, what is it?
<Director_Church> A few hours ago I discovered Agent California's body outside the facility.
<Agent_South> I can't say I liked the guy.
<Director_Church> What's important is that I recovered the AI I just gave him.
* Director_Church pulls out the chip containing Lambda.
<Director_Church> How would you like this AI, South?
* Agent_South 's eyes widen.
<Agent_South> You mean it?
<Director_Church> Since you are clearly not siding with the other Freelancers, I think you could use an AI.
* Agent_South slowly takes the data chip.
<Director_Church> No surgery required.
<Director_Church> I've been making updates.
* Agent_South inserts Lambda into her head.
<Director_Church> Just a warning, the experience may be a bit...
* Agent_South stumbles a bit but steadies herself.
<Agent_South> I'm okay...
<Director_Church> Now, onto our next order of business.
<Director_Church> I expect you to do as I say since I have given you your own AI.
<Agent_South> Y...yes...of course...
<Director_Church> There will be quite a few things you will need to do for me.
<Director_Church> I find myself short on Freelancers at the moment, so I could use every one I have.
<Director_Church> So for you to carry out your tasks successfully, you will need to be trained.
<Agent_South> By who?
* Epsilon-Tex steps into the room.
* Agent_South turns to see Epsilon-Tex.
<Agent_South> You can't be serious.
<Director_Church> This is no time to be petty, Agent.
<Director_Church> You agreed to do as I said.
<Agent_South> ...alright. Fine.
<Epsilon-Tex> Follow me.
* Epsilon-Tex leads South out of the room.
<Epsilon-Tex> Let's see what your new AI can do.
V: The Day of Reckoning
|1245 Hours, December 23, 2551 (UNSC Military Calendar), aboard the UNSC Mother of Invention, in orbit above Sigma Octanus IV, Sigma Octanus system|
<Four-Seven-Niner> We're coming up on the facility in ten, everyone.
<Agent_Texas> Okay, this is it.
<Agent_Wyoming> Righto, check weapons.
* Four-Seven-Niner flies deeper into the valley.
<Four-Seven-Niner> I'm gonna take us low and go around the mountain. That way they won't see us coming until we're on top of the facility.
<Agent_Texas> Okay, I'm gonna call in the other teams and tell them to get ready to move.
* Agent_Texas taps her helmet.
<Agent_Texas> COMs are jammed. Why would...
* Agent_Texas looks up.
<Agent_Texas> Four-Seven-Niner, pull out!
<Agent_Texas> Pull out now!
<Agent_Wyoming> Oh, bullocks.
* Four-Seven-Niner swears as the Pelican is hit by gunfire.
<Agent_Virginia> Whats going on?!
<Four-Seven-Niner> AA guns, scattered all over the valley!
<Four-Seven-Niner> Hold onto something!
<Agent_Carolina> Fucking hell...
* Agent_Wyoming braces.
* Four-Seven-Niner swerves the Pelican, trying to avoid the gunfire that's filling the air.
<Agent_Texas> Why the fuck would the director put AA guns in the valley adjacent to the facility?
* Agent_Carolina growls as audible whispers emit from her helmet speakers.
<Agent_Wyoming> Knew we should have done some recon . . .
<Four-Seven-Niner> These guns are all over the place!
* Agent_Texas lurches as an explosion is heard from the Pelican's right wing.
<Four-Seven-Niner> We're going down!
* Agent_Texas grips a handhold and braces as the Pelican spiralls downward.
<Four-Seven-Niner> It's gonna be a hard landing, guys.
<Four-Seven-Niner> Brace for impact!
|1301 Hours, January 17, 2552 (UNSC Military Calendar), aboard the UNSC Mother of Invention, in orbit above planet Tribute, Epsilon Eridani system|
* Agent_Texas enters the experiments facility with the counsellor.
<Counsellor> I presume you want to keep this matter private, Agent Texas?
<Agent_Texas> Of course.
<Agent_Texas> Especially from Wyoming.
<Counsellor> Very well.
<Agent_Texas> Now, what are we supposed to do?
<Counsellor> I am familiar with the entire procedure.
<Counsellor> The steps of melancholia, anger, and jealousy will be most unpleasant.
<Agent_Texas> And metastability?
<Counsellor> Metastability is the light at the end of the tunnel, in a manner of speaking.
<Agent_Texas> So how do we get started?
<Counsellor> Firstly, we will need the engineer the director used for splitting Alpha.
* Agent_Texas sighs.
<Counsellor> The problem is that I am unsure where the engineer is.
<Agent_Texas> I know where it is.
<Agent_Texas> Might take a while for me to get it back though.
<Counsellor> I will make the necessary preparations while you...attend to that, then.
* Counsellor sets Epsilon down at a table and begins to make adjustments.
* Agent_Texas exits the facility.
<Agent_Texas> Guess I'm on my own this time.
<Agent_Texas> Huh...I haven't had a solo mission for a while.
VII: Death Among Disunity
|1739 Hours, January 19, 2552 (UNSC Military Calendar), aboard the UNSC Mother of Invention, in orbit above planet Tribute, Epsilon Eridani system|
<Theta_AI> Guys, have you heard from South?
<Theta_AI> FILSS couldn't locate her ever since she left interrogation.
<Agent_North> Last I saw her we were suiting up. That was before interrogation.
<Delta_AI> It is possible that Agent South went with Montana.
<Agent_Carolina> That's another mystery I have yet to solve.
<Agent_Carolina> Freelancers going missing left and right.
<Delta_AI> Perhaps we should find the others after all.
<Agent_North> I agree.
<Agent_Carolina> Command expects me to know every time you guys sneeze. I guess they don't know how leadership works around here.
<Agent_Colorado> I'm in for it I certaintly need something to work on. I haven't been in the field for a while.
* Agent_Minnesota grabs his things and heads the source of some intercepted Insurrectionist chatter in a Hornet.
<Agent_Carolina> Consider yourself part of the team, then.
<Agent_Colorado> Thank you Carolina.
<Delta_AI> Since the UNSC has assumed command of the Mother of Invention, they will not think you know of everything that happens, Agent Carolina.
<Delta_AI> Nonetheless, if we are to leave, we should do so quietly.
* Agent_York nods.
<Agent_Carolina> All we really have is each other now. Might as well start acting like it.
<Agent_York> So when should we move?
<Agent_North> Soon, preferably.
* Agent_Carolina shrugs, donning her helmet.
* Agent_York slaps on his helmet too.
<Agent_Carolina> Now's as good a time as any, if I say so myself.
<Agent_Carolina> I'm tired of being asked questions. Let's go get some answers.
* Agent_Colorado slips on his helmet.
<Agent_Indiana> Hey Carolina! Wait up!
* Agent_Indiana quickly fixes his helmet with both of his hands.
<Agent_Colorado> Agent Indiana good to see you again.
<Agent_York> Indy. You're comin' along?
<Agent_Indiana> Well, I wouldn't like to miss the action this time would I?
<Agent_Colorado> Neither would I.
* Agent_Minnesota is prepping a Pelican dropship in the hangar.
* Agent_Carolina glances back at Indiana, somewhat coldly.
<Agent_Carolina> Try to keep up.
<Agent_Indiana> I'll try.
* Agent_Carolina hurries to the hangar, moving with purpose.
* Agent_York moves towards the hangar, following behind Carolina.
* Agent_Carolina enters the hangar and looks around, surprised that one of the ships seems to already be running.
<Agent_Colorado> How odd...
<Agent_Colorado> Why is one of the ships on already?
* Agent_Minnesota gets up from under the Pelican he was tweaking.
<Agent_Minnesota> Oh, hey. We going somewhere?
<Agent_North> How'd you guess?
* Agent_Minnesota shrugs.
<Agent_Minnesota> Heard about some Freelancers taking off in a lifeboat.
<Agent_Minnesota> Was thinking about going to find them.
<Agent_Colorado> Hey great, so are we.
* Agent_Indiana whispers to York
<Agent_Indiana> What's her problem?
* Agent_York whispers to Indiana.
<Agent_York> She's concerned about Tex.
<Agent_York> Don't mind her, buddy. She might seem a bit cold at first, but you'll get along with her later.
<Agent_Indiana> Rescue mission then?
<Agent_York> And yeah.
<Agent_Indiana> ohhh, I love rescue missions.
<Agent_North> So, we getting out of here, or what?
<Theta_AI> We'll need to make a distraction first.
<Delta_AI> I can assist you with that, Theta.
<Theta_AI> Sure thing.
* Theta_AI looks at North.
<Theta_AI> We're gonna be in a lot of trouble.
<Delta_AI> I think we already are in a lot of trouble.
<Agent_York> Hmm...let's test that theory.
<Agent_Colorado> We are almost always getting in trouble aren't we.
<Agent_Carolina> "Trouble" is for the rank and file.
<Agent_Carolina> We're Freelancers.
VIII: The Demon's Shadow
|0418 Hours, January 20, 2552 (UNSC Military Calendar), aboard the UNSC Mother of Invention, in orbit above planet Tribute, Epsilon Eridani system|
* Agent-Washington slides a new clip into his battle rifle and straps a pistol to either hip.
<Agent-Washington> Anyone got my back out here?
<Agent-Washington> (COM) This is Agent Washington.
<Agent-Washington> (COM) I'm moving in to take her down.
* FILSS marks Tex's location on Wash's HUD.
* Agent-Washington cautiously enters the hallway, rifle at the ready.
<Agent-Washington> (COM) Anyone, converge on my position now!
<Agent_Wyoming> (COM) Coming, Wash, hold on.
* Agent-Washington scans the deserted hallway with his rifle.
* Agent_Texas moves down the hallway quickly, SMGs ready.
* Agent-Washington spots Texas and fires a burst at her head.
* Agent_Texas ducks back.
<Agent-Washington> So it's you.
<Agent_Texas> Guess negotiation's out of the question then.
* Agent_Texas leaps out and sprays Wash with gunfire.
<Agent_Texas> Fine by me.
* Agent-Washington ducks behind a corner and blind fires at Texas.
* Agent_Texas reloads one SMG but keeps Wash suppressed with the other.
* Agent_Texas reloads the second SMG and brings up the first.
* Agent_Texas uses the time to cover the distance.
* Agent-Washington sees Texas coming and drops to one knee, aiming for the center of mass.
* Agent_Texas reaches Wash and smashes her SMG across his face.
* Agent_Texas follows up by punching him hard into the wall.
* Agent-Washington draws a pistol and fires at Texas's gut.
* Agent_Texas whacks the pistol out of Wash's hand.
* Agent-Washington draws his second one and fires at her knee.
* Agent_Texas spins, avoiding the shots.
* Agent_Texas delivers an uppercut to Wash's face, sending him crashing into the ceiling.
* Agent-Washington slumps back against the wall, disarmed.
* Agent_Texas grabs Wash and slams him hard into the floor.
* Agent_Texas turns and runs down the hallway.
<Agent_Texas> See you later.
Reassignment Into the UNSC
IX: Under New Management
|1454 Hours, February 9, 2552 (UNSC Military Calendar), 0.94 km from UNSC COM relay, planet Harmony, Hellespont system|
* Agent_South ducks back as a spray of bullets land next to her face.
* Agent_South reloads her MA37 and glances at Carolina, who is in cover behind a nearby wrecked car.
<Agent_South> Carolina, got a clear shot on them?
* Agent_Carolina sights down her BR and is met with the sight of... nothing.
<Agent_Carolina> They're in cover.
<Agent_Carolina> Smoke 'em out.
<Agent_South> What? These guys are everywhere!
<Agent_South> (COM) North, where the hell are you?!! You're supposed to be covering us!
<Agent_Wyoming> (COM) Hold on, I can see them. Updating thermals.
* Agent_North aims his sniper
<Agent_North> (COM) Thanks, Wyoming. I got 'em.
* Agent_North guns down several enemies
* Agent_South pokes her head out and fires a spray of bullets at the rebels.
* Agent_North takes down a few more enemies and moves up
<Agent_Wyoming> (COM) Mind for enemy snipers and rocket launcher teams.
<Agent_South> Screw this.
* Agent_South jumps out of cover and rushes the rebels.
<Omicron_AI> Agent South, that's not such a good idea.
<Agent_South> Just trust me, Omi.
<Lt_Forenson> (COM) Agent Carolina, how far is your team from the COM relay?
<Agent_Carolina> (COM) Less than a klick!
<Lt_Forenson> (COM) Roger that. Got Helljumpers en route. We're ten minutes out.
* Agent_South leaps to the rebels' cover and guns them down.
* Agent_North draws his SMG's and takes down a few more guards
* Agent_Wyoming 's shots fly overhead, covering the twins.
* Agent_Carolina grumbles as she reloads.
<Agent_Carolina> Helljumpers... yeah, that'll fix everything...
X: The Battle of Fumirole
|1034 Hours, April 22, 2552, aboard the UNSC Mother of Invention, 153 million km from planet Fumirole, Procyon system|
* Lt_Forenson steps out of an adjacent debriefing room and spots Carolina walking down the corridor.
<Lt_Forenson> Oh, there you are, Agent Carolina.
* Agent_Carolina salutes.
<Lt_Forenson> We're needed to deploy for another operation, Agent.
<Lt_Forenson> I've already informed your team.
<Lt_Forenson> They're waiting for you in the armoury.
<Agent_Carolina> ... another op?
* Agent_Carolina looks weary, then straightens up.
<Lt_Forenson> The Covenant has found Fumirole. We're needed to deploy there ASAP.
* Agent_Carolina can't help her eyes widening.
<Agent_Carolina> ... did you just say "Covenant?"
<Lt_Forenson> That's right, Agent Carolina. It's time to get into the real action.
<Lt_Forenson> One more thing...we're going to be assisting SPARTAN Noble Team.
* Agent_Carolina nods, though she seems a little dazed.
<Agent_Carolina> ... might as well be Spartans ourselves, at this point...
<Lt_Forenson> You'll be reporting to Commander Carter-A259.
<Agent_Carolina> of course, sir.
<Lt_Forenson> Agents York, Maine, Michigan, and Virginia are preparing in the armoury. I'll see you during deployment.
<Agent_Carolina> Yes, sir.
<Agent_Carolina> We'll do our best.
* Lt_Forenson heads off to prep his own Helljumpers.
* Agent_Carolina hurries to the armory, shaking off her trepidation.
XI: Lost and Captured
|0922 Hours, May 30, 2552, 84 million km from planet Tribute, Epsilon Eridani system|
<ODST_Leader> (COM) Ulan, are you reading me?
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) Roger
<Jonathan_Ulan> I'll take care of this Wash
* Agent-Washington nods and leaves the room.
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) Go ahead.
<ODST_Leader> (COM) I was hoping for a status update.
<ODST_Leader> (COM) We haven't heard much from your end since Europa.
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) Yeah, we got hit pretty hard
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) Couldn't get anything, but we wounded two Freelancers
<ODST_Leader> (COM) How are you doing now?
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) I'm okay, for a man who's been shot about 6 or 7 times, beaten, and stabbed
<ODST_Leader> (COM) You always are.
<ODST_Leader> (COM) I don't even bother to ask anymore.
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) Hahaha
<ODST_Leader> (COM) But listen to me, Ulan.
<ODST_Leader> (COM) We've had a breakthrough.
* Jonathan_Ulan is now interested
<ODST_Leader> (COM) Two days ago, some of my teams captured a Covenant research vessel.
<ODST_Leader> (COM) The whole thing's intact, including the stuff they were working on.
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) I see where this is going
<ODST_Leader> (COM) It's a gold mine.
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) Some things such as?
<ODST_Leader> (COM) I'd rather not say over a channel like this.
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) Roger, i'll head out
<ODST_Leader> (COM) Oh, Ulan.
<ODST_Leader> (COM) There's one other thing.
<ODST_Leader> (COM) We've found Georgia.
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) I know, I saw him on Europa
* ODST_Leader pauses before speaking, his voice tight.
<ODST_Leader> (COM) Yes.
<ODST_Leader> (COM) I know.
<ODST_Leader> (COM) I also know he handed the Freelancers the keys to the most important discovery of the century.
* Jonathan_Ulan 's brow furrows
<ODST_Leader> (COM) That site on Europa was supposed to be ours.
<ODST_Leader> (COM) Now there's ONI troops crawling all over it.
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) I can fix that
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) What kind of WMD do you want?
<ODST_Leader> (COM) We need that site intact, Ulan.
<ODST_Leader> (COM) But we aren't ready to go up against ONI.
<ODST_Leader> (COM) Not yet, anyway.
<ODST_Leader> (COM) I need your help with something else.
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) Yes?
<ODST_Leader> (COM) Georgia.
<ODST_Leader> (COM) I'm bringing him in.
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) What do you mean?
<ODST_Leader> (COM) Exactly what I said.
<ODST_Leader> (COM) He's too dangerous to be let free.
<ODST_Leader> (COM) Do you think you could lend me some support for this op?
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) I can
<ODST_Leader> (COM) Glad to hear it.
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) But you better have something ready to capture him
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) And, one more thing
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) The Freelancers want Georgia, from what I know, so we can hand him over to them, in return they pay us
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) Or we just torture him and kill him
<Jonathan_Ulan> (COM) Or, best yet, kill him on the spot
<ODST_Leader> (COM) He knows more than he lets on.
<ODST_Leader> After what he's done to us, I won't be too busted up about busting him up to find out exactly what that is.
XII: Love Can Kill, Love Will Die
|1813 Hours, June 28, 2552 (UNSC Military Calendar), on board the UNSC Mother of Invention, 61 million km from planet Reach, Epsilon Eridani system|
<Four-Seven-Niner> (COM) Carolina, I'm on approach to the Mother of Invention, with someone who says she wants to see you.
<Four-Seven-Niner> (COM) I'll be landing in hangar bay four, meet me there, copy?
<Agent_Carolina> (COM) And who might 'someone' be? I'm a little busy at the moment.
<Doctor_Halsey> (COM) Agent Carolina. I didn't expect you'd be fond of the spontaneity of my arrival, but I think you'll find my cargo to be worth your while.
* Agent_Carolina pauses for a full five seconds before replying, as if truly surprised.
<Four-Seven-Niner> (COM) She insists that you come alone.
<Agent_Carolina> (COM) ... Then I will. This had better be good, Doctor.
* Four-Seven-Niner settles the Pelican into a landing inside hangar bay four.
* Agent_Florida steps off the dropship with Dr_Halsey.
* Agent_Carolina approaches the dropship warily, alone and fully armored, no weapons visible.
* Agent_Florida snaps to attention when Carolina approaches.
* Doctor_Halsey waves dismissively at Agent Florida.
<Doctor_Halsey> Feel free to go somewhere less classified at the moment, Agent.
<Agent_Florida> Yes, ma'am.
* Agent_Florida nods to Carolina before walking off.
* Agent_Carolina turns her helmet slightly at Halsey, still uncomfortable with the woman's attitude toward Freelancers.
<Doctor_Halsey> Before you start firing off unnecessary questions, I need you to follow me.
* Doctor_Halsey turns and starts walking as if she knows exactly where she's going.
<Agent_Carolina> ... ma'am, where are you going? You don't know this ship.
* Doctor_Halsey looks back at Carolina and raises and eyebrow.
<Doctor_Halsey> What don't I know?
* Doctor_Halsey continues to walk calmly, with Carolina following her down a corridor that leads to one of the Director's old testing chambers.
<Agent_Carolina> Doctor Halsey, what is this about?
<Doctor_Halsey> You, mostly. I find it intriguing how most of the Director's loose ends lead back to you. But this isn't another loose end.
* Doctor_Halsey seals the door behind them and enters a personal code, locking down the internal surveillance and reinforcing the locking mechanisms of the door.
<Doctor_Halsey> Now that we have some privacy, I can get to business.
<Agent_Carolina> And what exactly do you mean by "business"?
* Doctor_Halsey carefully removes something from the satchel over her shoulder.
* Agent_Carolina removes her helmet, eyes narrowing.
<Agent_Carolina> What is that?
<Doctor_Halsey> Something that may well prove to be more important than anything else this project ever produced.
<Doctor_Halsey> Or rather I should say, someone.
* Doctor_Halsey holds a cylindrical piece of equipment with both hands, then sets it down on an adjacent table. She removes a chip and inserts it into a data crystal slot.
<Doctor_Halsey> Now come on. Don't tell me you're shy now.
* Agent_Carolina appears utterly baffled, then appears to realize something.
<Agent_Carolina> Doctor, is that an AI containment unit?
<Doctor_Halsey> Hardly. Much more refined than Leonard's toys.
<Agent_Carolina> ... Tex.
XIII: The Lone Wolf Strikes
|1831 Hours, July 14, 2552 (UNSC Military Calendar), on board the UNSC Mother of Invention, in orbit around planet Ariel, Epsilon Eridani system|
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> Our shuttle will be leaving the Mother of Invention now, and heading en route to the Kasserine Pass.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> We've detected that the ship is slowly approaching Ariel, possibly to attain resources from one of our dig sites.
* Agent_Texas|AI 's avatar appears over the holotable.
<Agent_Texas|AI> That guy is an idiot.
<Agent_Texas|AI> It's like he's asking for us to kill him.
* CMDR_Serin_Osman 's mouth twitches in a very slight smile.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> Then I should think we would be polite enough to accept the invitation.
* Agent_York shakes his head, unable to grasp the absurdity of it.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> Now, the shuttle is estimated to be within range of the ship in forty-three minutes.
* Agent_Carolina is unusually quiet, staring at the Kasserine Pass with arms crossed.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> There are no escorts accompanying it, and we can be certain that the ship is isolated.
<Agent_Wyoming> What's our entrance strategem?
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> There are eight single-occupant pods on board this shuttle.
<Agent_Wyoming> Ah, there's what I was looking for. Hot drop, eh?
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> They work similarly to Single Occupant Exoatmospheric Insertion Vehicles, used by Orbital Drop Shock Troopers.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> But with two key differences.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> One, they are designed for off-planet insertions rather than landings.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> And two, they use miniscule stealth engines that will not be detected.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> These engines remain dormant in the pod until activated, and then they have a lifespan of ten minutes before losing power. Single use only.
* Agent_Washington steps up and indicates the holographic image of the Kasserine Pass.
<Agent_Washington> In that case, we might want to change our approach vector if we don't all want to die before we even reach the ship.
<Agent_Washington> You've got the weapons layout all wrong here.
* CMDR_Serin_Osman raises an eyebrow.
<Agent_Washington> The point defense systems are laid out on both sides of the ship, to maximize coverage.
<Agent_Washington> You seem to think they're all clustered at the top of the ship.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> Those are the ones that are most likely to detect your approach, Agent Washington.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> But that's not what you need to worry about, provided you maintain this trajectory.
* CMDR_Serin_Osman taps a button and five red lines appear from space to connect to the Kasserine Pass.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> I presume you've taken the secondary weapons on the starboard side offline, Agent?
* Agent_York folds his arms, still listening. He thinks it's best he doesn't open his trap for once.
<Agent_Washington> You could presume that, yeah.
<Agent_Washington> But since sabotage was never part of my mission, and since the ship's crew runs routine maintanence checks...
<Agent_Washington> Well, let's just say you shouldn't count on them being offline.
<Agent_Carolina> Assumptions get people killed.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> We've been monitoring Makosky for weeks now, and he hasn't had any external resources to replace his damaged components.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> And according to your report, he doesn't do regular maintenance checks on the secondary weaponry unless it's after a direct engagement.
<Agent_York> I'm confused at how this guy is a General...
* Agent_Washington shrugs.
<Agent_Washington> Your call, commander.
<Agent_Washington> It's only our funerals, after all.
<Agent_Texas|AI> I doubt he has enough money to keep the ship in top shape anyway.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> Now, this is the hard part.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> You will deploy from the shuttle and aim for the Kasserine Pass's secondary missile tubes.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> You will find the missile tubes empty, if Agent Washington here has done his part correctly.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> It should be easy for you to break through into the maintenance tunnels and go from there.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> After that, it shouldn't be difficult for you to locate the General and take him out.
<Agent_Florida> We have to do this while the ship is moving?
* Agent_Florida raises an eyebrow.
<Agent_Wyoming> Routes are preprogrammed, correct? We're not going to have to eyeball it, I hope.
* Agent_York scratches his shoulder pad.
<Agent_Florida> How many enemies are we looking at?
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> Estimate between two hundred eighty to four hundred.
<Agent_Florida> Total crew?
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> Ground personnel.
<Agent_Wyoming> So that's a lot of security . . .
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> The total crew consists of roughly seven hundred soldiers.
<Agent_Florida> Five against seven-hundred and a crazed General.
<Agent_Florida> Sounds like fun.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> We can't risk sending in any more or you'd be detected on approach.
<CMDR_Serin_Osman> Which is why it's essential that you set the ship's engines for detonation and evacuate after completing your primary objective.
* Agent_York smirks behind his visor.
<Agent_York> Just another day at the office, Flowers.
Into the Howling Dark
XIV: Harcolni fogunk az utolsó lehelete
* Agent_Texas|AI flickers into view and activates the main holotable.
<Agent_Carolina> Our mission is to hold down a key position in a small city while the civilians are evacuated.
<Agent_Carolina> It's a hotspot for the Covies. If we lose our grip on the city, they'll come pouring through.
* Agent_York decides to listen, putting his hands behind his back.
<Agent_Texas|AI> The Covenant hasn't overrun this position yet, but it's a good tactical point to keep them at bay.
<Agent_Washington> So we won't lose it.
<Agent_Texas|AI> It's the first city to be evacuated, but it won't be the last.
<Agent_Texas|AI> It has only a population of five hundred thousand, but it makes an excellent choke point.
<Agent_Carolina> We're looking at heavy oppoisition. The UNSC has defensive assets installed, but we'll have to maintain them ourselves.
<Agent_Texas|AI> There's an underground Forerunner facility located three hundred klicks from the city, which is most likely the Covenant's objective.
<Agent_Texas|AI> But if they can't get past us, they won't get to it.
<Agent_Texas|AI> Assuming the Spartans can hold off the other fronts and whatnot.
<Agent_Carolina> This city is called Palhaza. Learn it by heart. It's going to be your first and foremost concern now.
* Agent_Washington nods, tapping his battle rifle.
<Agent_Washington> What kind of support can we expect from Command?
<Agent_Texas|AI> Spartan Noble Team will be inbound to defend the facility itself as soon as they disable a network of Covenant cloaking arrays on the far side of the continent.
<Agent_Texas|AI> Once the worst of the fighting is over, they'll help us set up a trap to lure in three Covenant cruisers that will try to deploy above the city in roughly eighteen hours.
<Agent_Texas|AI> If all goes well, we should be able to take down all three capital ships.
<Amelia_Dawson> That's quite a tall order.
<Agent_Carolina> It's doable.
<Agent_Carolina> I know humanity's lost a lot of colonies to these alien bastards, but Reach is our last line of defense.
<Agent_Washington> We know where their ships will be?
<Agent_Washington> Love to know how we got that intel.
<Agent_Texas|AI> Their battle network isn't the most secure.
<Agent_Texas|AI> They're on a busy schedule, so a few of ONI's AIs managed to slip through.
<Agent_Texas|AI> Dropships are already prepped. The Army is expecting us, so let's not keep them waiting.
<Agent_Carolina> Let's move out, people.
|AI unit||Omega — Rage (former)|
Created as a shadow of Director Church's memory of his deceased love interest, Allison O'Connell, Agent Texas is in reality the Beta AI, a "by-product" of the Alpha, an AI based off the Director himself. Although initially loyal to the Director before anyone else, even other Freelancers, Tex was horrified to learn what was being done to the Alpha in order to create the AI fragments, and this knowledge caused her to defect from the program and strive to save Alpha. She has convinced the other Freelancers to join her in bringing down the Director, and most of them have chosen to side with her. Although she has given command of the Freelancers to Agent Carolina, Tex often acts as a team leader on missions while Carolina is maintaining command over the Mother of Invention, or when the ship comes under attack while Carolina is in a state of deep sleep due to augmentations. Later in the revolution, Tex has become interested in the idea of reaching metastability, something she believes may be safe as she is not part of the Alpha; however, she has confessed to wanting to "put him back together" with the other AI fragments, which implies that she may want him to attain metastability as well. After the loss of several AI fragments as well as Alpha himself, Tex continues to pursue metastability at the cost of going rogue from the UNSC and distancing herself from the other Freelancers. She overpowered multiple Freelancers on board the Mother of Invention in an attempt to get to Epsilon, before she was defeated by Carolina and taken by ONI for storage.
Tex has a very gruff personality, and before the revolution, was seen as an outsider to the other Freelancers. Her rivalry with Agent Carolina was particularly notable among the hostilities. However, after Agent Washington became hospitalized with the unsuccessful implantation of Epsilon, she became more open and concerned with the welfare of the other agents, and after she turned against the Director, she is shown to be more caring when speaking personally to others, and they in turn have grown to trust her. Tex's self-doubt and frustration become apparent when a plan goes wrong or a situation spirals beyond her control, as she believes she cannot take down the Director alone, and sometimes even seeks reassurance from other agents, most notably Agent Carolina, with whom she has befriended during the start of revolution. However, she is still ruthless to anyone she considers an enemy, as she felt no remorse in ordering the death of Agent California, who betrayed the Freelancers to the Director, or her resolve to hunt down the mercenary Mordred, formerly known as Agent Georgia. Her anger and jealousy becomes more apparent after entering rampancy, having no remorse about injuring and possibly killing other Freelancers to get what she wanted.
Major Victoria O'Connell, born Victoria Corin Church, is the second daughter of Allison O'Connell and Dr. Leonard Church, and unbeknownst to her, the younger sister of Linda O'Connell. In 2536, Victoria's memory was wiped by Dr. Church and she was conscripted into phase 2 of the , but escaped as per his intentions after four years of hard training. In 2549, she joined Dr. Church's new supersoldier program, project FREELANCER. Taking on the name Agent Carolina, Victoria would earn a reputation as one of the best subjects in the project, and become a supersoldier with a skill rivalling that of a SPARTAN-II's. During this time, her relationship with Director Church would become strained as the Freelancers began to question the integrity of their work. In addition, Victoria would develop a tense rivalry with Agent Texas, one of the other "soldiers" in the program. The Freelancers would eventually discover the atrocities committed by the Director and rebel against him, with Victoria and Texas spearheading the pursuit for his capture. Following Dr. Church's arrest and incarceration in 2552, Victoria would serve the UNSC in the last few battles of the Human-Covenant War as a UNSC field officer before going rogue for personal reasons. In the years following the war and the new conflicts that arose, Victoria would act as a benefactor and guerrilla soldier to humanity alongside her fellow former FREELANCERs, taking arms against the enemies of the Interspecies Union on their own terms and keeping distance from the UNSC.
One of the lowest agents on the Freelancer totem pole, Agent Georgia was believed dead after an experiment with one of the program's thruster units sent him adrift in deep space; few of the other agents knew him well enough to care. His half-frozen body was recovered by smugglers and he spent the next few years as a freelance mercenary working on both sides of the law. He encountered Project Freelancer again when he was hired to steal the Director's personal files from the Mother of Invention. His audacious plan failed and he was taken prisoner, but the Director released him for his own purposes. Following the Freelancer mutiny, he attacked the ship twice more: once to assassinate Agent Pennsylvania and once to steal a data unit containing the programming for Epsilon-Tex. His refusal to turn Agent South over to the Director--due to a promise made to North--led to a violent confrontation that landed him in a war with both the Director and the other Freelancers.
Georgia forged an alliance with the rogue A.I. Sigma, but betrayed and destroyed his erstwhile partner while forming a short-lived truce between himself and the other Freelancers. With the Director incarcerated, he continued pursuing mercenary contracts along with his ward, a strange tentacled alien he referred to as "Bob." His involvement with the ODST leader's rebel activities led to Bob's death at the hands of Agent Texas. Abandoning the rebels, Georgia discovered a highly advanced alien construct beneath the ruins of a Freelancer base on Europa; tracked there by Agents Carolina and Wyoming, he urged them to destroy it but grudgingly backed down and allowed them to take an artifact that they believed would help revive Texas. Hunted down by the rebels for this perceived betrayal, he is currently incarcerated aboard the Staff of Charon after being used as a lab rat for experimental, alien-based gene therapy.
Jaded by a life of uncertainty and betrayal, Agent Georgia masks his churning emotions under the cold, cynical mask of Mordred. Cunning and driven, his two greatest assets are his keen mind and a tenacity that allows him to push himself onwards in spite of great physical pain or overwhelming odds. He has proven to be utterly ruthless when it comes to dealing with Freelancers, using all manner of dirty tricks and underhanded tactics to throw them off balance and counteract their advantages over him. Keenly aware of his own moral bankruptcy, Georgia is determined to survive in spite of his own growing doubts about his place in the conflict that rages around him.
|AI unit||Gamma — Deceit|
|Military rank||First Sergeant|
John Reginald Harding had made a name for himself as a sniper with the New Richmond Police Department, famed for thwarting a bombing attack by the Insurrectionist Major Jonathan Ulan. His reputation and previous acquaintance with Dr. Leonard Church led him to be asked to join FREELANCER, but initially refused. This changed when the Director abducted his wife, Adeline, and used her to force Reginald into joining, taking on the codename Agent Wyoming. He strove to please the Director, fearing for Adeline, and regularly placed near the top of the leaderboard. With the onset of the revolution, Wyoming went along with Tex and most other Freelancers until an opportunity to get close to the Director came by temporarily accompanying the rogue Agent Georgia. After failing to save his wife, he pledged himself fully to the Freelancers' efforts to bring down the Director.
With his defeat, Wyoming struck up a relationship with Four-Seven-Niner and intended to leave when the rest reintegrated into the UNSC, but was dragged back in by his concern for the friends he'd made in the program. Though he suspects the UNSC will label them criminals complicit in the Director's actions as soon as they aren't needed, Wyoming fights alongside his fellow Freelancers for humanity's survival, while still coming to terms with the death of Adeline and the fate of the pariah Agent Georgia.
Wyoming is most often aloof, seldom getting agitated in spite of the difficulties the Freelancers collectively face, and prefers to lie to himself as much as the others about his own feelings. Though he distrusts the UNSC and wishes to fight the Covenant on his own terms, he has stayed to do what he can for his former teammates and protect them from outside threats from his own past, like Jonathan Ulan.
His assigned AI is Gamma, the Alpha's deceit, and has proved helpful in maintaining the pretense of good humor, although the other Agents' reactions to his knock-knock jokes might disagree.
|Name||Agent North Dakota|
|AI unit||Theta — Trust|
Born Theodore Hawkins, Agent North Dakota was one of the higher-ranked Freelancers in the program, but cared little for the leaderboards in spite of his considerable skill, mainly keeping himself dedicated to keeping his sister, who had joined the project with him, out of trouble. North stood by Tex and Carolina through the Director's betrayal, reluctantly fighting his sister on two occasions. He has managed to also fight both Maine and California on equal terms, the latter of whom tricked him into killing Agent Pennsylvania. While he follows Tex's orders, North intends to end the conflict with the Director as soon as possible and get help for South, whom he refuses to give up on in spite of her volatile nature an violent clashes.
North has quite a caring personality, one of the main reasons why he was assigned the Theta AI. His laid-back and friendly attitude endears him to many around him, though this is generally used as a façade for his more serious side. North's has become quite strained with recent events, losing his temper on several occasions due to the actions of others, making him rather mistrustful of those outside his team and being reluctant to allow for second chances as he would have before.
|AI unit||Omicron — Courage|
|Armour ability||Anti-sensor detection|
|Military rank||First Lieutenant|
Agent Montana is arguably the best stealth Freelancer in the entire program; her ability to move about undetected and neutralize targets silently have ranked her in the top ten of the leaderboard. She prefers to operate alone on missions for the most part, save for when she is teamed up with Agent Texas or Agent Carolina, as she finds they are both able to blend in very well in addition to their formidable combat prowess. Although she isn't very dependent on her AI Omicron, the Alpha's courage, their relationship is something like that of two siblings, and his company has been beneficial to her; before her AI implantation, Montana was noted to be hesitant and even apprehensive during stealth training, and the addition of Omicron has ensured that she is able to carry out her tasks effectively without compromising her sense of caution. Montana is wary of the UNSC but not opposed to joining them if necessary.
Montana isn't very talkative, but she has a sarcastic personality and gets along well with other Freelancers. Although she is sometimes reprimanded by a team leader for seemingly failing to grasp the gravity of a situation, she takes her job very seriously and makes a point not to mess up due to her roles as a stealth operative. She has been noted to be "terrifying" when she is in a bad mood, or when she conducts interrogations, which is also known as one of her fortés. She can be opinionated at times and isn't hesitant to be blunt when she feels strongly about something. She also harbours a crush on Agent North Dakota, although it's a well-kept secret that she hides well and few Freelancers are aware of.
|AI unit||Sigma — Creativity (former)|
The ambiguous Agent Maine is upon one of the more sadistic freelancers in the program and has shown to be among the strongest of the entire program. Normally classified as dumb muscle, Maine is a mute and rarely speaks. Despite this, Maine has demonstrated himself as an extremely capable soldier and has at few times played a pivotal role in some of the Freelancer's more personal affairs.
Maine is an extremely aggressive soldier and has been popularised among the project because of this. Though most of the time when not in combat, Maine has a loyal but unattentive attitude which has worried some of his allies in some cases. Maine has at times been questioned on his status as a human being due to his lack of emotion.
|AI unit||Kappa — Compassion|
|Armour ability||Super speed|
Agent Michigan, or "Mich" for short, is a Freelancer who has worked with some of the best of the best, at one point helping on a mission to recover Agent Wyoming's wife.
Mich is a friendly, helpful, and tactful person, which makes him a perfect match for the AI Kappa. He has a humorous personality that offsets the seriousness of Agents Texas and Carolina whenever he is on missions with the two of them.

Clyde Dawson was introduced to Project FREELANCER by Victoria O'Connell, otherwise known as Agent Carolina, after meeting at Club Errera. Beforehand, York was nothing but a jobless university graduate in the middle of a depression when O'Connell came to the club. York was by himself with only his lighter after his friends had left him alone. When Victoria came down, a few of the club patrons were fawning over her attractiveness, in which York told them to stand down, unintentionally starting a bar fight, where he and Carolina made their way out of Errera using only their bare fists. Impressed by his hand-to-hand combat, Carolina was intrigued by Clyde's predicament, in which he told her about his life story. Now sympathetic, Carolina gave him the offer to join Project FREELANCER. He is one of the best in the program, all in defiance of his lost eye he received in a training incident. He prefers an M45 Shotgun and dual Magnum pistol as sidearms.
York is an outgoing, sarcastic persona who gets along with many of the other Freelancers in the program. A snarker by nature, he cracks jokes often during missions, but can occasionally show a more serious side. One of his traits is patience, which is instrumental in dealing with Delta, his assigned AI, due to the latter's exhausting and analytical mind. He holds his fellow Freelancers in high regard after the Director betrays the program, becoming more open after Church is imprisoned. As of recently, Clyde's jaded side has emerged again as a result of the death of a few of his fellow Freelancers.
|Played by||Anonymous ONI agent|
A former Marine NCO, Minnesota was recruited for Project FREELANCER directly out of the military. Minnesota is a solid marksman, dependable under pressure, and an expert in close-quarters combat. Minnesota is married to a civilian woman, and has a young daughter, neither of whom are aware of the existence of Project FREELANCER nor of his involvement in it.
Minnesota serves as a combat engineer, provided the Freelancers with added technical expertise in the field.
Less aggressive than most of the other Freelancers, but extremely impatient. While Minnesota is somewhat unprofessional, he still manages to be very effective. He has a tendency to run the patience of the Other Freelancers thin due to his talkative and relatively juvenile nature.

Agent Florida, also known as Butch Corey Flowers, was classified as one of the most "reliable" Freelancers in the entire project; although reserved and quiet at times, he was trusted to accompany the best Freelancers on several important missions. He is close friends with Agent Wyoming, having known him on a personal level before the project. As one of the few people that knew about the kidnapping of Wyoming's wife Adeline, Florida joined the project alongside him as a promise to help find her. However, Florida was unable to take part in most of the revolution against the director save for the final assault on his facility, having experienced some side effects from the augmentations Agent Texas had arranged for all the Freelancers to take. After the Freelancer program was placed under official UNSC command, Florida was given the rank of Captain and was tasked as Agent Carolina's second-in-command. He was also assigned into the Office of Naval Intelligence alongside Agents Missouri and Washington and sometimes relays orders between ONI and the Freelancers.
Florida is of an easygoing personality, sometimes deceptively so, considering his role as a trusted Freelancer and an executive officer. However, this often translates into a capability to maintain control under pressure or in combat, which was one of the reasons he was promoted over the Freelancers ranking higher than him on the leaderboard. He is rarely harsh with those under him, which was a reason the UNSC had placed him in a position to be able to counterweight Carolina's strict command over the Freelancers. His spotless reputation has allowed the Office of Naval Intelligence to take him into their ranks, and he is able to hide well his true distrust of them.
Florida enjoys playing music as a hobby, and likes listening to the occasional artist from centuries ago. One of his favourite 21st century bands is The Killers, in which his ancestor Brandon Flowers was the lead vocalist. Florida knows how to play the piano, violin, and drums, although his personal favourite is the guitar.
|Played by||Stellar Elite|
|Armour ability||Reflex Enhancer|
Colorado, real name Hal Kendrick, is a highly intelligent and creative soldier who was recruited to Project Freelancer from sources unknown, but likely for his natural reflexes. A fast-talker and thinker, he has considerable expertise as a scout and moves quickly from place to place, even without the need of a speed unit. He doesn't always prefer to work alone, but ends up doing so because he puts off other freelancers with his rather unique speed of communication. Uses a conjunction of automatic weaponry and sniper rifles. His armor ability augments his reflexes even further.
Hal is quite mindful of himself, and seldom speaks unless he is talked to. He may be incredibly capable, being rank as number eleven, but his diminished self-confidence keeps him out of the top ten. Along with being a fast thinker, he is also a fast talker, which often ends up with him having little punctuation in his sentences, sometimes putting other people off and/or asking him to talk slower. When he is on coffee, he is notorious for "speaking at FTL speeds".

Sonia Hawkins, commonly called Agent South Dakota or "South" by her peers, is the twin sister of Agent North Dakota. Having both joined Project Freelancers at the same time, she stood out as one of the more capable subjects in the program. Unbeknownst to her, she and her brother North were part of a psychological experiment arranged by the Director to see what would happen if one of the twins received many of the program's benefits while the other was left out. This would cause South to grow in resentment towards the Director and even other Freelancers. Which was greater between the two became apparent when the Freelancers started a revolution that forced the Director into hiding; during this time, South opted to betray them, thinking that she would never have anything to gain by siding with them. After North retrieved Epsilon from the director, he used the AI to wipe South's memory at a chance to redeem herself. South inherited the Omicron AI after Agent Montana's apparent death, as Montana's dying wish to help North keep a positive influence over her.
South's usual personality is mildly hostile to anyone in her immediate vicinity, as she usually sees them as adversaries rather than friends. Despite the fact that she is one of the highest ranked Freelancers in the program, she often feels inferior to those around her and dislike them for it. Although she does not wish to kill North after fighting against the Freelancers, she has no qualms about harming or trying to kill the others, particularly Carolina or Texas, both of whom she has harboured long-time feelings of animosity towards. At one point, she confessed that all she wanted was to be her own person, and that it was something she was never able to get until she broke away from North and turned against him. After South's memory was wiped by Epsilon, she returned to the Freelancers' side without much change in personality.
|AI unit||Lambda — Jealousy|
Agent California, or "Cal" for short, was a little-known Freelancer who, after many of the other Freelancers split off from the Director, joined a mercenary named Mordred against them. However, during the last hours of his life, he collected the AI Lambda and switched back to the Freelancers' side, but was killed moments later by a rampaging Agent Maine.
Cal was friendly, with a respect for order; he frowned upon uprisings by nature. He was a tenacious fighter, often testing himself against the likes of Tex and Carolina (and constantly risking death because of it).
Nathaniel Jones, otherwise known as Agent Indiana, is one of the more carefree members of Project Freelancer. Indy, as known by his colleagues, joined the project after successfully stealing an AI storage unit for the black market. Personally, Indiana is pessimistic and usually leaves the majority of the combat to his allies due to his expertise in retrieval missions. Indiana has a habit of not changing his helmet, which usually causes him to constantly adjust it.
Nathaniel has a very sassy attitude and openly expresses it. He has a very pessimistic view of the future and usually works under the motto "better safe than sorry". Indiana has been very cautious and observant of the Director's actions and had previously predicted his betrayal and has become an active member against him.
