    Default [Halo] Onyx Wind

    Onyx Wind




    The ship you were sent on was as familiar a home as any place you had ever known. The Dawn Evader was small, sparse in comfort, sleek, fast, and she didn’t need a pilot while outside of atmosphere. She was equipped with what she needed and little else… a lot like your team. She contained a complete arsenal of UNSC and covenant weaponry, jettison pods, and even the capability of hammering down a few MAC rounds. Best of all, she came with a cloaking device that allowed her to run silent of those that might be looking for her out here in the black. And then there was Valkyrie.

    Valkyrie was the Dawn Evader’s AI. She was little, blue, and feisty. She didn’t put up with much of anything from anyone… but she was loyal, quick with compliance and calculations, and… in a strange way… protective. With a temperament like a mother bear, she had dragged your asses out of a tight spot more than once. Valkyrie even referred to you as “her boys” from time to time.

    ---o---o---o---o---o---o---o---o---o---

    You all remember where you were several months ago when you learned of the fall of Reach; in fact, you remember the very moment it was relayed to you from Valkyrie. A slight hesitation between trigger-pulls, a rock dropped into the bottom of your gut, but not tears… not then, at least. There would be time for that later.

    And now that that time had come and passed, a new mission was handed down. Team Onyx Wind was told to board their ship and move out. The only word you caught before take-off was Helion. As usual, you were given no idea of what your mission would be and knew that you would have to wait to find out.

    But Helion is not a completely unfamiliar world to some of you. While you’ve never been there, you have come to find out two things about it. The first is that Helion is the largest source for mining caddamine penzothol in the known universe. Among its other uses, caddamine penzothol is one of the main chemicals utilized in the enhancing experiments done on Spartan soldiers.

    The second bit of information about Helion is that three years ago, a team of Spartans was dispatched to put down an uprising. The conflict ended in a massive explosion of one of the main mining complexes that wiped out both the insurrectionists and the Spartan team. This drew a lot of attention and questions directed at the UNSC’s interests on Helion… leading to the military’s absolution of presence on the world.

    Now, it appears, they were keen on the idea of getting reacquainted.

    You stared out the window of your bunk into the empty blackness of space, contemplating both deeds done and deeds yet to come. Countless stars streaked by as you traveled, and the thought that each one of those stars represented a solar system with its own series of planets revolving around it. Any one of them could be a world to somebody out there… any one of them could have been Reach. You tap the glass with your knuckle.

    Glassed, you think to yourself, burned the land and boiled the sea.

    There were 700 million civilians on Reach, and that isn’t even including the astronomical number of UNSC personnel that was lost. Some of them got off-world before it happened, but those that didn’t… people turned to ash, the metal structures reduced to liquid, the very air turned to fire… all in an instant.

    Chow,” the voice of your Captain rang out over the PA system. You dressed into your “skins”, as they were called - a skintight body suit designed to be worn under your armor. You exited your bunk and headed to Mess, joining up with the other members of Onyx. As you ate, the same thought ran through your head like it always did – Eat up… it very well could be your last. Often times, in fact, this last meal before the mission was referred to, affectionately as “The Last Supper”. Valen was the only member of the team that did not eat this meal, since he had to be getting suited up early. As you finished eating, Onyx 1 entered the room, his green Mjolnir Mark VI armor covered in deep gouges and carbon scoring. He carried his Security-issue helmet tucked under his arm and was already armed, the electro-magnet contacts holding the battle rifle against his back and the SMG against his hip.
    I’m on my way to the bridge for the pre-briefing. You boys’ve got one hour to suit up. Hop to, Onyx Wind.

    With that, your Captain left the room… and left you to your preparations.

    ---o---o---o---o---o---o---o---o---o---

    You headed down the hall into the Ready Room, where there were seven bays, each securing a different suit of armor. The dark gray steel of the room gave off a reluctant reflection of the cool blue-white lighting. The metal flooring was cool beneath your feet except for one spot, in the far corner. The Engine Room was beneath that portion of the floor and it always kept it warmer than the rest of the Ready Room. A slim locker beside each bay indicated your callsigns and held your specifically selected weapons and items within them.

    You took a deep breath, inhaling the mixture of old gun smoke, plasma residue, and grease. The Ready Room always had that smell to it… the smell like something was brewing… like war was on the horizon.

    It was time.

    Tristan walked up to his familiar black and red armor. Even at 7 feet tall and built like a freighter, he was small compared to it. As he stepped into the armor he felt complete again. Without his armor he felt like half a man, with it though....he was a demon in the eyes of the Covenant. As the seals hissed and the small nuclear reactor powered up, his slightly overconfident attitude returned. "Any bets on how were going in this time?" he asked without turning around.

    John stared at his scarred gray armor and smiled. "Either a drop in or Valkyrie is gonna shift her lazy ass and fly us down herself. Course, I could be completely wrong and I'll be going down in just my skin for that last comment." Grinning, he slipped Kaylee into her port, and Mal into his. "All systems are good to go! Hell, we could probably take on a few brutes in this girl."
    "Thank you Kaylee." And with that, John pulled his boots on, starting the laborious process of getting on armor.

    Volsung pulled open his armor locker and started donning his armor. "My bet's on drop in. Seems to protocol since Reach." Still putting his armor on, he jacked The Doctor into the AI slot.
    "You up for some firefights Doc?"Have you ever known me not to be up for putting some holes in meat-bags?
    "Fair Point." And with that, he slipped on his helmet and sealed it.

    Sammael lay in his bunk mind buzzing with hatred; Reach destroyed almost a billion dead. His nightly ritual since the fall of Reach started again, his ear piece droned on as he fell into a light sleep.

    {Reach Aszod city civilian list part 15: Lukács Kazimír Jónás, Román Eduárd Jónás, Sami Janika Jónás, Jóska Jancsi Jónás…}

    The list went on even in his sleep each name dug into his soul fuelling his hatred, he would purge the devils from this world until his own dying breath.

    ….

    He ate in silence, the earpieces still reciting name after name of the seven hundred million casualties on reach, if he lived to eighty he mighty possibility hear each one but in his line of work that was unlikely.

    ….

    Only once he was down in the armoury did he remove it and like the rest of the Spartans, he began the ritual of armourment, soon his fragile form was encased in the blessed armour and soon he would be given the chance once again to end the foes that tormented humanity. Some Spartans choses to keep their helmets off for now, but Sammael equipped his straight away covering his bald scarred head. His display flashed up and quickly his sentinel companion activated the basic AI flashing up a systems check.

    He turned to see his brothers and felt a surge of pride and excitement in his soul. The armoured angels of humanity would once again decent and do what they did best; fore they were angels of death. Tristan the team’s close combat specialist voiced a question on their entry method. Acolyte the AI in the floating sentinel took in the question and turned back to its master. Machine code flowed through the com-link and displayed a message for Sammael’s eyes only.

    Code:
    [Increased] … [Temperature] … [?]
    Sammael grinned and spoke in a slightly raspy voice. “That’s right Acolyte, probably going in hot.”

    He began the ritual of checking his rifle for imperfections it had taken some use in recent times and it soon would again. It would need to be in top working condition to spill the blood to begin to repay the fallen.

    Acolyte floated a few inches higher than the Spartan’s head buzzing and humming in a way which quickly grew irritating.

    John stepped in between the crane arms to put on his knee guards, and turned towards Sammael to say "I swear, if that drone of yours gives away our position again I am going to space it myself. I've always wanted to know if it could survive slip space."

    Tristan laughs and says, "Oh its not that bad. It saved us the trouble of having to find all those split jaws, and it tore apart that squad of Jackels when it flew behind their shields." then he sits down and waits for his turn with the crane.

    Acolyte turned to face John and his threats. The calculations quickly were searched on all known knowledge of slipstream survival capabilities.
    Code:
    [ Chance < 0.01%] ... [Insufficient]… [Armour]
    Sammael Leaned against his locker letting out a small chuckle despite his teams words of jest Acolyte was a liability when trying to be stealthy and usually had to be carried in powdered down mode in such situations. so much of his original forerunner shielding and tech had been replaced to keep it functioning.

    “Everything has a purpose, however I will keep such events from happening… again”


    It felt good to be back in his armour without it his mind wandered and Sammael was quickly lost in repetitive rituals and anything to keep his mind on track. The armour bore no major damage but many signs of use, its dark steel and red colours reflecting the violent nature of the Spartan.

    John grunts, but whether it was in acknowledgement or from the fact that the crane has just attached his chest-plate is anyone's guess. He steps forward and rolls his shoulders forward a few times, then picks up his helmet.

    Tristan steps up between the cranes and takes his turn at getting suited up. As his bulky armor is strapped on to his body he goes silent and focuses on preparing himself for the coming mission.

    As He watches his comrades change into their armors, his current thoughts are put aside. All He knows, all He will ever know, standing before him. A slight smile runs across his face, momentarily.

    As He turns his head back towards his armor, the sensation is lost, the dark void returns. He picks up his helmet.
    Staring deep into the face of the helmet, his mind is quelled.

    "I still can't believe it."
    But what he was really thinking, was that he didn't want to believe it.

    Ever since Reach, a dark void has grown where his heart used to be, a deep loathing sensation overwhelms him whenever eyes are upon the enemy.

    He closes his eyes, and gears up. He never liked to watch his own transition, but instead feel it.

    As the last few clicks are made, his peace settles, the sound of the armor powering up always made him feel superior to his human body.
    As the last system checks finished, He was no longer his former self, He was now Hindrance.
    Catch wasted no time, she immediately greeted him through a personal comm.
    "So what are we killing this time? Or are we doing another covert?"

    "Not sure yet. If we get into a jam and have to run, make sure you warn me before making me take another suicide jump..."
    snapped Hindrance.

    "But then it wouldn't be fun..." answered Catch, in a sly yet soothing voice.

    Hindrance exhaled, glad to be back in his suit, he curled his hands into fists, admiring the metal he now wore.

    Talking now to the other Spartans he added his thoughts.
    "Dropping in seems to be the popular choice, either way, it's the wait that I enjoy. Seconds of thought, before the action starts."

    Hindrance picks up his DMR with his right hand, hanging down, now looking at the barrel, wondering if he should check it.

    "Take the risk."
    joked Catch, somehow reading his mind.

    Hindrance directed his attention toward the weapon, before turning to Argyle to ask,
    "Remember when we split off into two groups a while back, and we somehow ended up switching DMR's? I forgot to ask, just how did you get blood on the inside of my barrel?"

    John staggers when he leaves the crane area, then curses "笨天生的一堆肉, Kaylee, how many times do I have to tell you when I ask for a suit check, I mean TURN THE 狗操的 THING ON!"
    "Well sorry. You're the one too damn lazy to do a check yourself. And I just do what I'm told, and you told me to check if it was working. I don't have to turn it on to do that."
    John grumbles under his breath and then says through gritted teeth, "Kaywinnit Lee, please turn on the Spartan armor so I can move more than 10 feet."

    Argyle was smilling as he put on is armour. It was more like it being assembled around him really, with the cranes as such. Argyle was only tall due to modification, being just shorter then the rest of Onyx team.

    Well you remember how my group had to split again. We got pinned so I jumped up a boardwalk into a peice of cover, and an Elite had the same idea."

    Argyles armour suddenly emmited it's ow distinct double laugh, from both the AI's laughing. No chippped in first, followed so shortly by Io.

    "The look of surprise on both your faces! I'll have to send you the camera feeds."
    "I have to remind him to jab."

    "And you won't let me forget it. I was going to swap to my spiker, and it has a blade on the end."
    "So he reaches out, and I shock him because what else am I going to do?"
    "Lucky the thing was basically a grunt."
    "And I'm stabbin' forward, thinking to impale him then fill him with lead, and I think 'I need to Sharpen this, wait, is it jammed?'.
    "Even the Elite was looken down, wonderin' how he had been impaled with a blunt stick, and realising he was impaled in a riflle."
    "Yeah. Good times. I can't believe you didn't clean it out properly!"

    As Volsung gets his chest plate locked into place and starts the power-up sequence, he say "That was definitely not one of your better missions Argyle. Took me so long to patch you up after that I wasn't quite sure it was worth it." As he walks out of the crane station, popping his joints back into place, and starts pulling on his knee guards, he remarks "To be fair, that brute could have jumped anyone, but that was one stor rřv hole he put in you"

    Hindrance continues cleaning his weapon, and starts over again to add a nice polish.

    "Oh right, a pack of armored elites... They came in masses, took a while to take down..."

    Catch interrupts his comm, and laughs mockingly as she explains what really happened, "The fool stepped on the exact rock I told him not to, and tumbled down the cliff. Needless to say, we had to make our way back..."

    Hindrance, removing Catch from his suit, regains control of his comms.

    "I should get back to inspecting the rifle..."

    Hindrance stretches around a bit, before finally placing Catch back into his suit.

    Where he manifesting, Argyle would have been sure Iaoch would be smiling, as it waited for Catch to be placed back in his suit.

    "I know the feeling. Argyle has been learning slowly, but he has been falling short on his jump."

    "Oh sush you."

    "Need I remind you of when-."

    "No, thats their jobs."

    Argyle waives one hand lazilly towards his companions, his wrist doing the work as to avoid fouling the machines.

    Tristan let the crane put his helmet on. As his custom visor lit up it showed what he had last been looking at. It was the list of names from the majority of the Spartan II program. All but one of them were listed as MIA, but he knew that only a handful of them were actually missing. The rest were dead. The list had grown greatly ever since Reach.
    "I'm detecting elevated levels of stress, are you alright X-217?" A female voice chimed in his ear."I'm fine Bell, just need to get some stuff off my mind. Play Crystallize. I need some music. he says, his light celtic accent twisting his words.

    Now that hes properlly armored he feels complete. He sits down and says, "I'm still not sure where you got that Ghost, all I know is that my shoulders were sore after smashing in that many skulls."

    "I managed to kick a grunt off of it."

    Hindrance having finished polishing his weapon, places it in its 'holster'.

    Well, now that I think about it, he was sort of under me as I fell...


    Hindrance begins a second set of system checks.

    Tristan laughs, then turns and opens his locker. He pulls out his gravity hammer and checks it over for damage or caked on blood.

    John paused in the middle of pulling his gloves on. "Ghost, thats what its called. Kaylee couldn't leave that thing along. And when I did finally let her check it over she didn't want to leave!" John cracks a smile.

    @doc and @x you guys are using the same color


    Tristan, satisfied that his hammer is in working order, begins running a systems check on his Spartan Laser. Bell used the interface in his gloves to link with the weapon and ensure that it was safe to use. As a stream of data flew over his HUD he looked around at the assembled Spartans. "So.... we've all known each other since we were six. We all know what we're avoiding talking about, so I'm gonna say it..... Reach has fallen. The last true stronghold before Earth just got glassed."

    Argyle shakes his head.

    "There are plenty of strongholds along the way, and the Covenent are no longer steam rolling us. I know it's just propaganda but if the science teams have there heads anywhere but in their b***, they surely have to be near something important. Call me a optimist, but we couldn't be pulling delaying actions much longer."

    "I call you an optimist. But this is what we do. This is all we can do, unless someone has started to try diplomacy."

    "Oh sush No."

    *Sigh*. By the way, No has just found that report you wanted. Shall I plaster it on your hud."
    "Yes please..."

    You could all guess what he was looking at. It would probably be a report of Argyle's sister, the only family he knew of that was still living. Maria was also a Sparten, just a little younger. A barely audible sigh would eventually emanate from the speakers from the rest of the team. It wasn't exactly a good sigh, but it wasn't a bad one either.

    John secures his helmet in place before turning to Tristan. "Reach was the last planetary stronghold. The spartan program, ODST, and UNSC are now the last stronghold before Earth is glassed. And we are sure as hell not going to fail Earth." With that, John chambers a shell in his shotgun and puts it on his back, and slaps his SMG on his waist.

    Does it really matter if were using the same colors? Also, I did not realize at all we were, I was surprised to see we had the same AI color as well.


    Hindrance remained silent, looking for a solution to this crisis.
    "What has Valen said about this? Perhaps he'll know more. Not that he wants to be bothered right now."

    Catch, enthusiastic about another mission, adds to the conversation.
    "It's possible there is an attack of some sort being planned, however against a covenant fleet that large, something under the radar would have to happen simultaneously."

    What date is it?

    Asked Hindrance, an idea coming to him.

    it might get confusing later


    "I don't know the exact date, but its sometime in late 2552." Tristan turns to John and says "So the Spartans and the ODST's are our hope? the ODST's may be better than the average marine, but even they are nothing compared to Spartans!" he pulls the report up that he had been looking at and flashes it onto everyone's HUD. The list of names from the spartan program was depressing. There were only a handful names that were labeled as active. "The only Spartan who made it off Reach was S-117. The only other Spartans that are alive are stationed on far off worlds, or are on some classified mission that even we cant know the details of." he looks down sadly, the venom leaving his voice. "I'm not saying we give up, but i think its time we start planning for what to do if we lose...."
