* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Though it's arguable whether or not Parangosky counts as a hero... [[spoiler:As of ''Halo 4'', it's looking like Parangosky and Osman's plan of support dissension among the Elites has blown up in their faces. All the Elite fanatics they hoped to cultivate as a counterweight to the Arbiter are now eager reinforcements for the Didact. Perhaps Halsey and Parangosky are NotSoDifferent when it comes to the morality of their actions, but Halsey seems to have a better track record of her work not turning into disaster. Paragonsky even admits to herself that Halsey wouldn't have dropped the ball as bad as Paragonsky's people did.]]
