*** Which is ironic as the Insurrectionists are literally fascists left over from the formation of the United Earth Government at the end of the Rainforest Wars. They disapproved of the unification of Earth and their goal is to conquer humanity even if doing so dooms the species.



* YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters: The Outer Colonies mainly think this of the Insurrection, though considering that things like Charybdis apparently happen on a regular basis you can't really blame them.

** Except you can because Charybdis was the fault of the Insurrection ratting out human worlds to the Covenant. And the little detail that it is the UNSC who is defending the Outer Colonies from the Covenant...while the Insurrection is attacking those same defenses and helping the Covenant find Outer Colony worlds to glass. If the Outer Colonists are truly so stupid, then their deaths are vital for the continued survival of humanity as they are clearly [[TooDumbToLive Too Dumb to Live]].

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority[=/=]AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Sangheili/Elite society is meritocratic, meaning that those who perform great deeds (re: military success) advance in society. Kaidons (feudal lords) accept assassination attempts as tests of their ability to lead, for "a kaidon who cannot defend himself is incapable of leadership". [[spoiler: Also, Keyes' actions in the Battle of the Rubble convince Admiral Cole that he's too good to lose, and skip promotes Keyes from Lieutenant to full Commander]].

* DrivenToSuicide: Jora, a Zealot, is crippled in a fight, so he decides to kill himself rather than live with the shame. Perfectly justified within Sangheili culture , as living would compel his keep to kill his nephews to prevent the "genetic proclivities of failure" from spreading to future generations. He's also too wounded to do it himself, so someone else has to.

News of this unlikely treaty has spread to the warring sides. Luckily for the UNSC, this uneasy alliance is in the path of the SPARTAN Gray Team, a three man renegade squad whose simple task is to wreak havoc from behind enemy lines in any way they see fit. But the Prophets have also sent their best, most ambitious and ruthless Elite, whose quest for nobility and rank is matched only by his brutality... and who will do anything to secure his Ascendancy and walk the Path.
