Interrogating Axl

Following a chemical terror attack against the independent human colony Sedra by Covenant Zealots, UNSC ONI Agent Jameson Locke walks on on Sedran Militia Colonel Randall Aiken beating up an alien smuggler to get him to talk (without success). After some trading of barbs between Aiken and Locke's team, Locke addresses the prisoner, Axl, in his own language and quickly starts getting him to open up... before casually mentioning he can always hand him back to Aiken if he doesn't keep talking. Axl spills everything he knows in a hurry.
