I think we should set this about a year after the IC chapter 1.
A lone figure watched from the shadows as a UNSC parade took place.
As it ended, the soldiers and the crowd all saluted one man that was standing on a podium, in the center of it all.
Their salute was familiar.
The figure remembered something about it having been used by a group of people in the 20th century, just over 600 years ago. The same group had tried conquering the world, and committed a genocide of massive proportions.
He'd learnt that when he'd been taught Blitzkrieg tactics to quickly overcome the enemy with an inferior force through sheer speed.
Something he excelled at.
When an opportunity he'd been waiting for arose, he stepped out of the shadows, revealing his Mk. 11 recon configuration, and his 9 feet tall frame.
-004 quickly aimed his sniper rifle and fired, hitting his mark with insane precision.
The crowd scattered and he left, the man on the podium lying in a pool of blood.
The 7 other Warriors waited in a pelican as -004 came back from his assassination.
-011 was reading information on a holo-table with a concentrated frown, whilst Angel sat perpendicularly against him on the bench, watching some news on a holo-pad.
Edgy was chatting casually with -001, cheerfully nicknamed Cold, a female who was around the size of Angel.
-005, Lucky, was attempting to intercept UNSC and ONI transmissions in the cockpit, next to -003, Mischief, who was half-dozing, half looking at the radar.
-006, the foreboding "Beast" was quietly staring straight ahead, hardly blinking, in what could only be called an unnerving stare, as he sat across from -011.
-011 spoke up.
"Let's get a quick summary of the political landscape of our enemy..."
Everyone stopped what they were doing and crowded into the rear cabin.
Lucky chimed in, "From my sources, a coup happened some time last year."
Cold was next.
"It was orchestrated by Ultra-Nationalists..."
"... Who were backed by the Dark Devils."
"They've installed a dictatorship and a segregational system so far-"
Angel interrupted him to add, "And democracy is completely gone. Propaganda is everywhere, they've gotten the popular opinion against the Red Eagles. We're losing."
-008 stepped in.
"The Red Eagles are the last remains of a Democracy that exist. They're vastly outnumbered and out gunned, but their cause is just."
-011 let all of it sink in, then he answered.
"The Eagles have us on their side. The UEG has Dr. Arcadia, amongst a host of other doctors that created us. They're going to make more of us to use against us. It's guaranteed at this point.
We wait for Joker, then we leave a to show the Eagles all of the fruits of our reconnaissance."
They all nodded in approval.
Minutes later, -004 glided in, being pulled by Lucky.
Mischief input the jump calculations and then they left.
