Stb: 2549 - 2555
Seth walks out the door to go to school on his first day of his senior year. His father Major General Paul Parkin yells at him.
Paul: Seth where the hell you think your going? You haven't saluted me out nor did I give your permission to leave until you salute is that understood. Look at me when I talk to you.
Seth: Sorry sir, I forgot, won't happen again.
Paul: Your damn right it won't happen again, or that will be thousand push ups am I clear.
Seth: Yes sir.
Seth was trained from birth by his father to become one day a graduate of the UNSC Military Acedemy and his father was hard on him about it. It was a family tradition that if you were a parkin you had to go to the Military Acedemy. A tradition that has lasted for 200 years.
Seth salutes out to his father and turns away.
Paul: Did I tell you at ease? Look at me boy?
Seth: Sorry sir.
Paul: At ease your free to go.
Seth: Sir, I missed my ride to school.
Paul: That sounds like a personal problem to me boy. Now you better not be late.
Seth: Sir, the school is 15 miles away and school starts in 15 minutes sir.
Paul: I'll give you a ride, and then I'm being deployed.
Seth: Your being deployed? Sir.
Paul: Yes I am.
As the Pelican dropship that was going to take Major General Parkin to the loading ramp of a the Pillar of Autumn a UNSC Halycon class, he orders the pilot to take him to his son's school first.
Pilot: Sir? I'm not authorized to allow civilians onboard sir, I have weapons onboard and I don't think the UNSCMC will be happy.
Paul: I ordered you to take him to school or this will go into your evaluation and dissertation. Is that understood.
Pilot: Yes sir.
The Pelican code name "Stingray" arrives at the school a couple of ODST unload to allow Seth to get off.
Seth: Dad, please come home, I don't want to not have a father, please?
Paul: I can't make you any promises son, even though I'm hard on you, I do it because I love you, I do promise you that you will be a better man than I ever was.
Seth took those words to heart and hid those away as if those where his fathers last words. Something he would never forget.
//////Five months later\\\\\\
Seth runs to the door and sees an officer take his helmet off.
Officer: Seth? I presume
Seth: Yes sir. Seth Salutes him.
Officer: I'm sorry to tell you this, Its the worst job in the entire UNSC is doing this. Your father didn't make it. He was onboard a pelican when a Spirit-class dropship opened fire on the open pelican, they didn't have time to unload and get your father off.
Seth: No, thats a lie. He's coming home.
Officer: He isn't, we never were able to recover your father's body as there is nothing left. Your father is warhero.
Seth: Who's gonna raise me? I'm still in high school.
Officer: Well your father was Major General in the UNSC Marine Corps and he put in his will that in the event he died in combat that a Officer will raise his son till he's able to get into the acedemy.
Officer: And I do know that your grades are good enough. And that the Military Acedemy wants you to join them ASAP.
Seth: I'm going to the Acedemy? Why?
Officer: Your father is friends with the Quartermaster of the Military Acedemy I believe thats why.
////1 Week later\\\\
Seth arrives to the UNSC Military Acedemy to start his military career. He went to the office and request to join the Marine Corps.
Secretary: I don't believe you join the UNSC Marines just yet.
Seth: My father told me that the Marines had their own Acedemy here is that true?
Secretary: Your just a teenager I don't believe you can handle it.
Seth: My father Major General Parkin trained me. I can handle it and much more.
Secretary: If you wish welcome to the UNSCMC. Good luck.
Seth walks to the fields and is quickly berated by a drill sergeant.
Drill Sergeant: You think you can waltz in here late? Huh answer me or I'll snap you like a twig.
Seth: Sir no Sir, Won't happen again Drill Sergeant
Drill Sergeant: You get in that formation and stay there till I answer you. Now Recruit what is your name?
Seth: Seth Parkin sir.
Drill Sergeant: Oh so you think just cause your father is a war hero means we going to be easy on you? Well Alpha Platoon you can thank Seth for 1500 pushups you will be doing and you get to eat till you all are finished. Now drop in position... 1. 2. you call that a push up you pussy you think that you can get away with that Melvins? drop 1. 2 you keep doing this the whole platoon will be redoing it.
5 hours later the entire platoon finishes their pushups while Seth has been done for 2 1/2 hours. Thanks to his fathers training regiment.
Seth graduated 4 years later top of his class. He was a marksmen and was graduated from Marine Corps Marksman school. He gradauted that a few months later in the top 5 of the school. Seth was able to shoot a piece of rope with only one shot by the time he was done. By the time of his graduation UNSC collapsed and Vernette head of ONI takes over the remnants of the UNSC.
As a member of the ONIMC Sniper Platoon Delta he was an elite sniper he already has obtained 12 kills all of them from a mile away.
Platoon Commander Antares: Seth you will be going over to these coordinates X30 by Y30 you will set up shop there and provide some cover for our ground teams. Keep those shots count and if you need to move you know the drill.
Seth: Yes sir.
Seth takes up position at his given coordinates and gets his rifle ready, he takes aim, pulls the trigger
*Bang* a headshot on a Brute tore most of the brutes head off.
*Bang* a headshot
By the end of the battle he earned 5 more headshots in his only second deployment.
Seth goes back to his old home hasn't been home in years and he looks at all the dust that has collected and sees an image of his father. Seth breaks down and cries he wished his father would have seen him graduate and become a decorated marksman. He then remembered what happened and blaims the ONI for it.
//The Beginnings of a monster\\
Seth deserted the ONI and everything he fought for and joined the Trust Syndicate for one reason. To make ONI and the UNSC pay for his father's death.
Seth: I want to join you guys.
Trust recruiter: You think you can handle being one of us? Hunted by ONI?
Seth: I've seen worse. I killed a Hunter and all I had was a sniper rifle.
Trust Recruiter: Ok, well if you want in you better be good. I need my quota for the week. Go to docking bay 31 a Pelican will take you where you need to.
As Seth boards the Pelican he looks on the wall and see's a DMR, his father's favorite weapon was a DMR.
Seth: Can I have this weapon?
Pelican Pilot: Go ahead you want it keep it. Its yours if you can fix it.
Seth straps in and starts to figure what was wrong with the rifle. carefully taking it apart piece by piece. And finds the problem.
Seth: I found your problem a dud round got jammed.
As seth removes the round the pilot comes up behind him and knocks him out.
//Trust Training Camp\\
They uncover seth's head from the garment they put on it, only to find himself chained to a chair.
Trust Agent: Welcome, to my little house of horrors. Before you can progress with your training you need to be well ensured that your good enough for the trust.
Seth: And what happens if I don't pass
Trust Agent: I kill you. If you cannot handle it tell me, that won't mean I'll kill you you have to fail more of my test than just the first.
The trust agent starts to through punches at seth's face for what seemed like an eternity but in reality it was only 2 minutes. Seth's bleeding face wouldn't stop, and yet he never cried out to end the pain.
Agent: Hmm interesting. Most cry out after a minute but you lasted the whole 2 minutes. Second test
The Agent starts to waterboard seth and while doing starts to flog him him with a whip to push seth to his limits. He lasted only 1 minute and 30 seconds.
After all the test were done, Seth passed and was injected with the Trust Serum.
Seth: It burns like mother fucker
Agent: Oh you think this is painful? Try it without you bleeding. It burns more.
Seth later becomes a Trust Assassin and intelligence gatherer. His first mission was to kill the remnants of his old platoon. Sniper Team Delta, by doing this would mean his loyalty was to Koyla and no one else.
//Operation: Delta 2555 (takes place between PT10 and 11\\
Seth's pelican lands and unloads him. He pulls out his DMR with a silencer on it and moves for the kills.
Seth moves to a crows nest and places his weapon on the ground while he gets situated. His breathing slowed
Seth: Gotcha bye bye Sniper Team.
Seth pulls the trigger one by one he killed the team of snipers and his old friend Charlie. He ensured charlie was dead by putting a round into his face causing parts of the head to fall off the body as his body hit the ground.
Seth grabs his weapon and heads back when he found a ONI computer, he grabs his splicing tool and hacks into the mainframe and starts to download all the data on the computer and heads back to the rendouvous point. He gets on the pelican and is sent to the Ulterior Motive.
Seth's STB is complete hope you all liked it, if you see anything that may need corrections let me know.
