Panel 1: Interior of a Covenant Warship. The scene is one of having just previously been hit by weapons fire. A Sangheili Shipmaster (Elite Ship Captain) – KAHS ‘YAMAKEE – is holding onto a control panel for balance as he ‘stands’ on his knees, having just been previously knocked off his feet from the explosion that rocked his ship.
KAHS: <What just happened?!>*
TEXT BOX: *(Translated to English)
Panel 2: A Sangheili Ultra – NOST ‘KAHMEE – picks himself up nearby and gives KAHS a reply.
NOST: <It’s the Unanimous Verdict, Sir! They’ve fired on us!>
KAHS: <What heresy do you speak of?!>
Panel 3: Upper body of NOST as he attempts to report, only to be shot in the back before he can finish.
NOST: <It’s…It’s the Unggoy, Sir! They are report->
SFX: (From impact of weapons fire hitting NOST’s back) ptCHHH!
Panel 4: An array of UNGGOY (Grunts) are rushing through the main entrance to the room, firing an assortment of weapons at anyone they see, killing a surprising number of Sangheili before they can respond.
LEAD UNGGOY (1): <For Balaho!>
LEAD UNGGOY (2): <For the Unggoy!>
LEAD UNGGOY (3): <For JUSTICE!>
SFX: ZzU! ZzU! ZzU! ZzU! ZzU!
Panel 5: KAHS activates a light sword and prepares to charge at the Unggoy with it. He has a look of angry determination on his face.
KAHS: <Not on my ship.>
SFX: (From activation of Light Sword) Ka-cSHHH!
(I’ve had a soft spot for the grunts since Halo 1, so needless to say I was highly amused by a reference to “The Great Grunt Rebellion” in Halo 2. Since no one else has ever written much about it except the basic details, I decided that I would try to do so myself.)
