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.
The Celestia-class Assault Ship, also known as the Celestia-class Cruiser, was a warship class in service with The Royal Allegiance Navy, and later the UCG Navy during the Swarm War. Despite being heavily outdated and centuries old, massive attrition rates of newer warships prompted the pressing into service of the Celestia-class, where it was initially used solely as a support and assault vessel for ground troops. However, further losses saw the vessel forced into ship-to-ship combat acting as a unique cruiser/carrier hybrid vessel. By the time of its formal, final decommissioning in 2894, the Celestia-class had witnessed and fought in every major armed conflict of a period spanning over four centuries.
Baal Defense Solutions, or BDS, is a private military corporation operating in the aftermath of the Human-Covenant War. Having been founded before the war, the company only truly came to power in the turbulent period of peace after the end of the Human-Covenant War as power on the Frontier and lawless space rapidly shifted over to private institutions. Operating mainly as a security provider for other corporate interests or vulnerable government facilities in the frontier, BDS has grown rapidly, being able to afford vast quantities of military grade equipment and even design and manufacture their own. As with many corporate groups following the war there are numerous rumors surrounding BDS, ranging from Human Rights violations and war crimes to the use of privatized supersoldiers, though none of these claims have been verified.
