Alright, so I've decided to take an Elite NPC from Halo 3 and make him a full-fledged OC.
Of course, you're probably asking why I'm giving some NPC a name and character status.
While playing the level "The Covenant" on Halo 3, I gave some poor Elite Minor a plasma pistol to take his carbine after arriving at the third tower. Later, while inside the third tower, I was fighting hunters. They had me low on health, and I killed the first one but figured I was about to die. The second one charged me.
Then, I hear this Elite shout "SUCH A FEAT STRENGTHENS THE BLOOD!" and watch as my plasma-pistol carrying friend punches a hole straight through the second Hunter's midsection. The thing died then and there, and this Elite turns to go fight some Drones.
This elite then downed a patrol of Brutes with little help from me, and then took out half the flood after the tower was deactivated. I even shot a flood infection form off him before he was assimilated, and he just went straight back to tearing through enemy ranks. He then got on a Mongoose, which I decided to drive. I love using Mongooses on this level, especially to board the scarabs XD.
On that mongoose, that elite and I decimated one prowler. Then, after using the natural ramps in the canyon where they appeared, murdered the crews of two Scarabs before blowing them to pieces. And yes, he had that plasma pistol the whole stinking time. I even watched as he gunned down a fuel-rod cannon toting Brute Chieftain with it.
At the end of the battle, I gave him my battle rifle. He deserved it. Hell, if I had it, I would have just given him Alpha Halo's activation index.
This Elite dared to be badass. And dang, did he succeed. Therefore, I think he's worthy of name and personality.
Anyway, here's his name: Xiphos 'Kakolomee, derived from the Greek words for 'Sword' and 'Badass'.
