Works fine :) it kind of puzzles me how such a highly trained Elite can't lob a good grenade, but meh.
Name: Tolomee Merukeah (named after the two characters of my first E roleplay, Ptolomy and Merekida)
Species: A Sangheili (Elite)
Background: Almost all young Sangheili are thrust into the armor of a soldier at a young age. Tolomee was no exception. His basics were covered perfectly, but as training continued, it was clear his skills would be better used in covert/recon. He had never strived for anything incredible in rank. While the black armored stealth teams (You'll noticed I don't have a lot of the picky little details. Question Mark is clearly the new Halo nerd of E ^_^) were highly trained and far above the front line soldiers, he had never ascended the inner ranks very far. He was devout and faithful, and he was content to serve in their glory, the rank unimportant to him.
Of course, The Covenant Schism had been quite a blow to him. His mind in turmoil, he had assisted many Elites with escaping the Brutes genocide, using his covert skills to advantage parties in any way, whether it was sabotage or ambushes. He had to be resourceful, and many Elites owe a debt to him for the tactics that no doubt preserved many lives. He kept very focused, for once they had escaped and had eventually joined with the Arbiter, it was a long, slow time of self reflection for him.
Many of them had believed, had blindly lapped at the lies of The Prophets. But now, with Truth dead on the Ark, killed by the Arbiter himself, many feel as though they can go on, as if Truths blood has somehow washed much of the sin from their hands.
Tolomee has sworn loyalty to whatever may come of the Alliance between his people and the Humans. Now that the Flood has become a very real threat, he sees assisting the humans as his final atonement.
Appearance: Come on... he's an elite... a pretty slim one, with Black armor, but theres not much else that differs >.>
Personality: Resourceful, efficient, and ruthless. He can be dark at times, and can seem reclusive, but he is an honorable Elite. He will work among a team well, and alone well, preferably alone, but hes not stupid enough to be alone when the mission at hand will benefit more from a team.
Quick, silent spy/assassin
A Master of duel wielding Plasma Swords
An excellent shot at long range.
Full frontal combat isn't exactly a strength.
Still exhibits tendencies from before he learned the truth of the Halos. So... still has some blind prejudices that he needs to work out.
Carries a Carbine and Modified Beam Rifle, with selected grenades, two Plasma Swords and a robust, effective Cloak. While he does not carry one, he does favor acquired Shotgun like weapons for close quarters.
