As you can probably tell, my alias is Sev40. I've been a big halo fan since the first game came out more than a decade ago. Being the rebel I am, I stole the game out of my parents room and did a gaming marathon where I tried (and failed) to complete the game on Normal in a single night. Nevertheless, I was blown away by the visuals, the AI, the levels - everything about the game led me to become a halo fanatic.
Of course, it wasn't until much, much later that I started to get deeply involved with the universe that surrounded it, and I began to read the books and Halopedia. Eventually, as I waited for the next Halo game to come out, I began to write books and play around with ship ideas that might exist in the Halo Universe, and even cross-overs with other universes. Of course, these were all done before I ever found Halo Fanon, and now I'm glad I'm here.
"I'm broken. I think we all are, us Spartans. We're trained to fight, raised to live on the battlefield and nowhere else. I know a thousand ways to patch up a human body and three thousand ways to destroy it. It's so much easier to take a life than it is to save one. But I can do both. That's who I am. It's what they made me. It's the cross I have to bear, and I carry it willingly. All I can do is pray that in the end I save more lives than I take."
Cassandra-G006 was a SPARTAN-III commando from Gamma Company who was raised and augmented as a child supersoldier during the final years of the Human-Covenant War. Although she was noted for having poor combat scores during training, she was made remarkable by her innate talent as a field medic and was considered the best practitioner of combat medicine ever produced by the Spartan program. Despite her skills, her first squad was wiped out by the Covenant and she was transferred to Team Jian. Later, she would become an unwilling deserter when she was caught up in the traitor Simon-G294's efforts to elude UNSC forces. Instead of continuing the fight with her former teammate, Cassandra instead chose to use the opportunity presented by Simon's rebellion to strike out and find a life outside of the military system she had been raised in. More self-aware than many of her fellow Spartans, Cassandra clearly recognizes what has been done to her and her friends by the UNSC's indoctrination and training; she hopes to one day reconcile her existence as a Spartan with her desire to live at peace rather than war.
Jonathan Watts was an Insurrectionist pilot, son of the famous UNSC turncoat Colonel Robert Watts. Born to Robert and his wife Jane in 2517 on Eridanus Secundus, Jonathan grew up completely loyal to the Insurrection, knowing no other life. While his father was abducted in a raid by Blue Team when he was eight, his family and friends told him he was merely helping the Insurrection elsewhere, until in 2531 the rebels intercepted an intelligence report confirming Watts had been executed. When he learned the truth, he demanded to know who was responsible and was shown surveillance footage of the SPARTANs. Soon after, he volunteered to train with the asteroid's rebels, becoming a talented D77 Pelican pilot. When the URF began a full-scale rebellion on Mamore in 2536, Jonathan was one of many trained rebels sent to support Mamore's militias and became known on both sides for his daring and skill as a pilot.
"They took everything I had in life, moulded me into a living weapon. That's why I want to be the best in the business; It's all I know."
In the Post-War galaxy, mercenaries, pirates and assassins are in high demand. Winston Zhou is regarded as one of the most sought-after for his indifference to morality, class, creed, or species. He rose to infamy for being an instrument of destruction in the criminal underworld, both lauded and despised for his actions. Zhou was known for his loyalty only to the money.
