(This is a thread to introduce Richard-1337, inspired by Nikolai's story in the comments of his page. Thanks Nik!)
In the Halo Universe, I was sent on a mission against the Covenant Remnant, and ended up being teleported by a Forerunner artifact here. I survived on my own, and integrated into society, adopting two Children.
(No, I figured out its not your fault you can't keep up when people rely on your for characters to be played. Its like trying to go on a walk with a normal person, you have to walk circles around them in order to not leave them behind.)
Chat Officer "Submit! If you don't join the armed forces then you are violating a number of Chat laws and regulations. We will procecute you. You will go to jail or the front lines and your children will become public servants until you have finished your service to your country."
Voice on coms: "Hello, is this planet at a technological level that they can respond to our communication efforts? If not then we will send a diplomatic shuttle to what ever form of leader you have, and maby help you invent the radio, we are looking for a notorious space faring tribe known only as the raptor pirates, any assistance in helping kill or arrest these criminals is not necessary, we only seek to find if any are hear after a failure to find them at yoth."
A siren onboard the flag ship: "Fleet master, what do we do? at this rate we won't find a single raptor pirate in 100 years, that's 1/4rth our average life span, we will forever be esteemed incompetent."
Fleet master: "Its not my fault if humans are dumb stupid animals, so they aren't helpful, we should just learn our lesson and stop asking them directions, we are on our own unless we find someone to ask who cares, mark that planet on the map of out side our jurisdiction, and spread out to search the rest of the star system."
A crewmember: "But what if the rest of the star system is colonized as well, just like the hygeriose system, would we be trespassing hear doing that to."
Fleet commander: "Now, think about how helpful asking humans was at yoth...... ok, good, now ask your self how helpful asking them was 3 minuets ago. (still doing minuet = day) Ok, good, now ask your self, if the whole system is their territory, do you think they are going to tell us? Just start searching, we will sooner find out where else is out side our jurisdiction our selves!"
(What stuff? Ok so let me guess you molested a dog?)
(I don't think you got twd reference.)
Luchesi "Look I've come across your kind before. After this we took in those rebellious types they become leaders in our army. Now you put down that weapon, walk out of that house and you are one of us. We will forgive you of your trespasses and no more people have to die. You can still come back. You can serve your time and then you can have what you want."
Luchesi "I can't promise you anything. Now that I know your kids are the path to your loyalty I wonder what might happen if they are taken by the enemy? What would you do if your children are kidnapped by the terrorists to convince you to join their cause?
The will leave out the rest of their lives in a maximum security prison. For your safety of course. Its the best way for us to keep track of them. After your tenure with the army is up then you will be reunited with them at a home of your chosing."
Luchesi "The resistance no doubt know that. They will try to remove it and that spartan is a lot more dangerous than the dwindling number of Chat personel. Not to mention all the information we will be keeping our of resistance hands."
The resistance members drag Richard out of the back door and into the courtyard.
Resistance member "Just a little more. Damn this guy is heavy and he doesn't even have his armor on."
Luchesi "ONE strafing run. We blow the place up and then we high tail it out of here. We don't have FTL travel on this thing I assume so we will have to land on the other side of the planet and get a civilian frieghter. Wait a sec. Command is on the line."
The Mech suit turns around and goes in for the strafing run. It blows up the facility in a huge fireball just as the resistance members drag Richard away. The Mech makes its way to the other side of the planet but it crahes in a nearby forest due to the hack.
Luchesi "Its just dumb luck. Your bubble saved us from dieing in the crash. Command got shut out in the crash. But they said something about Yoth. I think we should get to the nearest city and check it out."
Soldier "We found you in custody of Chat troops while we were burning their place to the ground. We saved you. We did this because we understand that spartans tend to sympathize with our cause. We want you to join the New Galactic Republic."
