    MISSION LOG:

    Date: October 24, 2552, 0940 hours

    Location: Essen, Rhine-Ruhr Area, Germany, Europe, Earth

    Operation: GRAVITY

    Status: Third Stage In Progress, Nearing Completion

    Force: Task Forces Bravo, Charlie, Golf, India, and the 700th Armoured Division.

    Primary Objective: Proceed to the ONI base in Essen, secure or neutralise [REDACTED] prototypes.

    Background Information: By neutralising a total of three Anti-Air emplacements around the city of Essen, the group has given the UNSC Sword of Giants access to the city. As it moves in to provide air support for the torch and burn op, most of Task Force Bravo is rallying for the final push, despite the fact that the rest of the Task Forces and the 700th Armoured are pinned down.

    However, Bravo has had an encounter with a splinter group of Covenant Separatists, consisting of the Kig-Yar Kai, Unggoy Taybab, Sangheili leader 'Vlassamee, a Sangheili elite team called the Black Seraphs, and some other miscellaneous Sangheili. While they do not appear to be hostile towards the humans, many members of Task Force Bravo have difficulty trusting the Black Seraphs, particularly the SPARTAN-I DAB-101, who has had a run-in with them before, which resulted in him being a Prisoner of War for almost a year.

    ...

    ALERT: All volunteers, please report to your commanding officers before joining the mission.

    • 2 banshees shoot at Kai, he fires a plasma pistol knocking 1 into the other then jumps and rolls.

      Another banshee shoots at him, he activates his point defense gauntlet and blocks the shots, then it fires a banshee bomb, he jumps away. The 2 other banshees regain them selves, 1 flies at him preparing to open fire, he draws his beam rifle and takes aim, and headshots the banshee pilot. The other banshee dive bombs him and misses, he climbs ontop of the banshee, it flies around trying to figure out where he went.

      another banshee shoots at Kai while he is on the banshee, the banshee not knowing why its own banshee is being shot at shoots back, a 3rd banshee comes at him, he uses his plasma pistol to shoot it down then jumps down and grabs the banshee, the banshee retakes flight, Kai opens the cockpit letting the pilot fall out, then flies to the building and crashes into a window, climbs out and gose into a bathroom locking the door behind him. He feels him self all over to make sure he is still alive. Disbelieving he had just survived all that.

    • DAB considers using the Camoflage module he has, but decides against it. Instead, he molds a tiny stick of C-12, and throws it into the air ahead of the final Banshee. It gets caught and stuck between the wing and cockpit, but the Banshee dives, knocking DAB over and sending the detonator spinning into the middle of the road. Nobody can reach it, because they'll be torn down by the Banshee fire first.

    • One disoriented banshee pilot flies a little too close to a roof top and is pounced upon by Vlassamee who promptly boards it and engages the other banshees in a dogfight. 

      Taybab runs out into the middle of the street and decloaks. He challenges a pilot who begins bearing down on him with the intent to splatter him. 

      (We all know jirlahane are prone to foolish acts of bravado do it is not out of the question.)

      Taybab waits a few seconds, primes a plasma grenade, and at the last possible moment chucks it at banshee and blasts himself too the side and out of harm's way. 

      The grenade adheres solidly to the banshee's cockpit and detonates. The banshee is heavily damaged, but still airborne.

    • Hartley fires his MA5C at the heavily-damaged Banshee, destroying it.

        Loading editor
    • DAB sees that the Banshee he hit with the C-12 is still airborne, but he is too slow and far away from the detonator to blow it up.

      DAB: Kai! Get the detonator!

    • instead Kai simply shoots the c-12 with a beam rifle.

    • Taybab moves with speed not seen in most unggoy and reaches the detonator. He dives for it and grasps it, lifts up the safety cover, and presses the button. The banshee's wing is heavily damaged and the cockpit is blown off revealing an angry, burned brute pilot. Taybab turns around and takes a smattering of plasma fire. With his shields blown out and having sustained painful injuries he runs for cover. 

      Vlassamee loops and corkscrews until he is flying head on at the damaged banshee. He fires his fule rod cannon. The enemy banshee disappears inside a green explosion followed by a blue burning wreckage. 

      Vlassamee lands his captured banshee in the street and runs to Taybab.

      Earlier:

      DAB is getting increasingly annoyed at Locke. He turns his COM device off completely, and walks over to Matt, with whom he quietly begins to talk (so quiet that nobody could possibly have heard him).

      DAB: Sometimes, I just hate his guts. He's very much an ONI spook, thinking he's better than everyone else...

      Matt: I know where you're coming from - remember what he was like back at New Mombasa, to me? But don't be stupid and act on your annoyance. With us fighting the Brutes, the last thing we need is to be fighting each other too.

      DAB: I know, but... Screw it, I'm leaving.

      Matt: DAB, don't...

      DAB walks up to an abandoned MLX, which has miraculously survived unscathed.

      DAB: This ought to do...

      DAB punches a whole in the car's window, then uses it to open the door. He quickly, clearly with espionage experience, hotwires it.

      Matt: Stop, now...

      DAB: You can come, or you can stay with Locke and get yourself sliced in half by an energy sword. Your choice is...?

      Matt: DAB, what about Michaels, Hartley, everyone else? Don't abandon them because Locke pissed you off.

      DAB: I'll take that as a no.

      DAB spots a Brute patrol up ahead, and swerves into its path, killing its leader. His MLX is flaming now, but he doesn't particularly care; the waypoint is only 500m away. Luckily, the Brutes haven't yet realised the value of the ONI base yet, as it appears empty.

      He crashes the MLX into the wall of the facility, gets out his automag and puts 5 rounds into the engine, blowing it up. He strolls into the facility, finding no Covenant at all, but no humans either, unfortunately. Using brute force, he pulls apart two lift doors, and uses the lift's support ropes to slide down to the basement. The room is extremely large and expansive, containing many prototypes.

      Once he gets fully into the room, he makes as if to begin setting his C-12 charges, but then he sees something, tied up in a bundle of cables, and almost drops the first charge.

      DAB: Oh, fuck...

      Taybab without turning around comments, "To me you all seem to be stupid worshiping buildings left behind by an extinct race. If the Forerunners were gods, why did the go extinct? If they were gods then why can their creations be destroyed? If they were gods why did they not completely eradicate the flood?"

      DAB takes off his helmet, and throws it aside

      DAB: Remember how I was WIA, back with the Banshees? (pause) Well they don't let WIA soldiers, particularly not SPARTANs, back into service so quickly. But then, I'm not WIA. I'm KIA. That piece of banshee that got embedded in my leg, it gave off some kind of radiation. I've got this thing called Boren Syndrome now. I've got days, if not hours, left...

      Locke laughs.

      Locke: Boren's Syndrome is bullshit. ONI used it to cover up ORION. Basically, you've been angry over a bullshit disease that they briefed effectively all of the ORION members on-oh. Right. Sorry.
