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."

* {{Irony}}: Thel kills Zhar, his best friend, [[spoiler:when he tries to kill the Prophets of Regret and Truth with his sword for looking like they're about to execute them for following orders]]. This action spares Thel's life, and he is left wondering who in their right minds would dare to rebel so against their leaders. Come ''[[VideoGame/Halo3]]'', Thel, now [[HeelFaceTurn the Arbiter]] and leader of the [[DefectorFromDecadence Covenant Separatists]], [[spoiler:kills the Prophet of Truth with his own energy sword, the very same Prophet whose life he saved on that day]].

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