“Command. This is Spartan-326. I am a survivor of Phoenix Outpost 1. Everyone else is... There’s nothing left. If there is anyone out there, please respond.”
*Three months later*
A pair of Spartans searched the wreckage of the outpost. Among them were Grail-221 and Rick-227. They conversed about the warthog that had exploded on Covenant trip mines three days ago, and whether their teammates would be able to salvage it. As they drew closer to the only standing structure of the bunker, they heard a voice call from the roof.
"Heeeyyyy!! Over here!"
Grail looked up and immediately groaned, "ohh.. great... 326," he muttered, "I knew I knew that number."
Rick joined him on the rubble, "What? What's wrong?"
Grail replied under his breath, "It's herrrr..." He then directed his voice toward 326. "uh.. Hiii....!"
326 called back, "Hang on, I'll be down in a second!" She disapeared from view, probably toward some stairs.
Rick inquired, "So? It's a chick. A Spartan chick. I hear our chicks kick ass. What's so bad about that?"
Grail looked at him, "It's Runt."
Rick finally understood. "Oh... Great..."
A little backstory there for you. I drew my female Sparty again. Her armor is an odd mix of Halo: Reach and MJOLNIR Mark IV. Sorry for the lingo, but that's what they are. To be more specific, I took pieces from my two favorite chicks in the Halo series: from Kat (Reach) and Kelly (Legends).
