Rtas ‘VadumCalled By:
66Canon: HaloHistory: History
He’ll be taken from 2553 on the way back to Sangheilios.Personality:
'Vadum is quick, smart, decisive and will do what must be done. A strong and tactically minded leader, 'Vadum shows great care for the safety those under his command. As with most Sangheili 'Vadum holds honour in high regards and as such will always try and protect his own if infringed upon and that of his people. He looks well on those who hold honour in a similar regard or act honourably however, he does not suffer fools and those who would go against this lightly.
In most situations ‘Vadum retains a calm air, and a mostly formal manner. He can be slow to anger but those who would earn his ire are likely to keep it for a long while.
When previously he had fought against and held a hatred for humans as most in the Covenant had, after the events and battles of Earth and the Halo installations, their valiant actions and struggles have earned them a manner of respect from him.
In matters relating to the parasitic flood, he will stop at nothing to stop them, having much experience with their danger, having lost his left mandibles in a fight an infected comrade. Having been willing to destroy Earth to stop the flood, though was persuaded otherwise by the Arbiters council.3 Interesting Character Facts:
- Takes training seriously, so much so that while training with his second in command, a swordsman of greater skill than he himself took an energy sword through the side in order to defeat him.
- On board the Infinite Succor
‘Vadum lost his left most mandibles in a duel with his former second in command who had been infected by the flood. This serves as a constant reminder to ‘Vadum as to the threat the Flood posed to all.
- He is one of the founders and leaders of Covenant Separatists alongside the Arbiter Thel Vadam, who came to the aid of the humans and fought alongside their former enemies of so many years. Powers:
His Sangheili physiology as described in detail here
. In short he has far greater strength and agility than a regular human.
‘Vadum’s Combat Harness, like others of its kind incorporates an inbuilt shield generator, able to deflect or absorb in coming projectiles and/or energy. Other than these the armour incorporates a number of other systems such as a motion tracker, communications as well as an active camouflage system.Special Skills:
Vadum is a highly skilled and experienced tactician and commander both in the realms of ground and space based operations, having planned and orchestrated many combat operations as Special Operations commander and fleet battles as fleet commander of the fleet of the Fleet of Retribution.
He is highly trained in the use of all covenant and indeed human weapons and vehicles, his specialty however is in close range combat, particularly through the use of an energy sword or pair of swords. What is your character's comm icon and why? Here
- Two crossed energy swords, his preferred weapons of choice and a nod to them by selecting it as an icon even if he might not have them on hand.Anything else?:
Would it be possible for him to keep his armour, as it’s practically his ‘uniform’ as it were, understandable if not however.
Writing Samples:Action Tag Sample:
[The Sangheili commander regarded the foreign comms device, something that had been given to him somehow in the transition to what ever this place was.
Drawing himself up as he activated the feed, his tone that clearly of one experienced in command. Behind him the reflective purple interior of the Twilight Advance's troop transport bay clear and beyond that the hanger it had been stationed in.
This is the Shipmaster of the Shadow of Intent
on board the Twilight Advance
to any Sangheili or human forces who may be receiving,who may respond.
My vessel has suffered considerable damage and I find myself unable to make contact with the Shadow of Intent
, records indicate that it is beyond this station though I know not where.
[With that he cut the feed and lowered the comm and cast his gaze out into the hanger he had awoken within before turning back to the console within the Twilight Advance, reviewing for the third time all information that had lead up to the situation at hand. The Shadow of Intent was out there and he would find it, but first to find out what had truly happened.
]Third Person Prose Sample:
It had been a few days since his sudden awakening aboard the Twilight Advance
, the Sangheili having ensured that the Phantom was in operational condition before setting to exploring the station that he had found himself onboard. Thinking on what information he had gleaned from communications with the other individuals whom had likewise found themselves stranded aboard this station of unknown origin, although many portions of the station reminded the Sangheili of designs similar to Forerunner origins yet others hinted at other origins.
Having found a view port that gave a considerable view of the station and the planet far below 'Vadum had paused in his explorations. His gaze sweeping out over the exterior of the station before lingering on the planet below. Not a few days ago he had been in slip space on board a vessel with thousands aboard, and yet there was no sign nor response from what readings he had recieved...had all perished in the transition? Been displaced? Questions he sought answers to.
His gaze turning to the space beyond, dead space? Somewhere out there the Shadow of Intent
waited, and he would
