Umbra Aeterna Part 1
Screams in the night. They echoed throughout the city. A lone figure silhouetted against the night sky, perched atop a local hotel. A banner flapping in the wind was the only movement in the still night.
Draxon raised his scarred head as soon as the sound reached him. Standing he looked down over the ledge of the roof, looking in the direction of the sound he dove headfirst from the building.
Waiting until he was a few feet from the concrete he stretched his wings wide and began to soar down the street. Beating his wings he closed in on the location of the screams, he could only hope he would make it in time.
The hulking wolfen creature hunted its prey down the street, leaping from car to car it toyed with its prey, allowing the pathetic furless creature to think it had escaped and then bounding up alongside it baring his glistening fangs. But the thrill of the hunt grew a bore quickly for the beast, leaping in front of the human he raised his snout and released a deafening roar and

He started down the corridor heading back in the direction that he had come from with the difference or taking a side passageway that he was sure would lead towards the hangar.
The end of the corridor split into two passages. Realising that if he poked his head out to check the corridor he would be spotted and, most likely, attacked he decided to go for the less subtle approach.
Here goes nothing, I guess Im going left.
Drawing his sword he sprinted out into the open and veered left, this was followed by cries from marines at the other end of the corridor.
Theres the split jaw scum! Get him!
At least I didnt run into them, he thought smiling grimly.

We need Spartan support! a surviving marine barked into a radio, jerking Azhaq back into reality.
Azhaq sighed, How do I always get into these messes?
He began to sprint down the

Azhaq quietly walked up behind the two human technicians that were on duty. Quickly before they had any chance to raise an alarm he grabbed each by the head and twisted, killing each instantly. Unlike some of the other Sangheili he did not enjoy killing and tried to make it as painless as possible for his unfortunate victims.
He moved the bodies to one side and murmured a short apology, he had always wondered why they were at war with the humans, he could never see the reason that they deserved to die. This led to him being distrusted by his brethren for being too compassionate to his enemies, just because he didnt share their zeal for death.
Pushing these thoughts to one side he walked up to the computer, his fingers moving rapidly he began searching for all files on the humans Demons or Spartans as they known by the humans. It didnt take him long to find the files and he began moving the files to his data storage de

Maybe I can turn this to my advantage, Azhaq thought.
Disabling his shields he took a running jump at the cave wall above the middle tunnel and started to scale the surface until he was right at the point that the wall of the cave met the roof.
He slowed his breathing to make the smallest amount of noise possible and waited for the marines to show themselves. It didn't take long, after a few minutes a squad of six marines entered the chamber from the left tunnel, they seemed to be the humans elite ODST marines as well.
This base must be important, Azhaq pondered, then again I should have guessed that by looking at the front gate.
Azhaq noted the ranks and weaponry of the marines in case of combat. He hoped it wouldn't come to that, he had a feeling he would need all the equipment he had to get through this mission alive.
"Come on! Move on! The room's clear!" The marine wearing a red shoulder pad ordered the squad.

Bullets flew past Azhaq as he ran headlong down the corridor, I dont have time for this!
A quick glance over his shoulder was shortly followed by the azure glow of a plasma grenade.
That should slow them down he muttered. As he turned back to face forwards he realised he had hit a dead end. It dawned on him that there was about to be quite a large explosion behind him and he was completely exposed to the blast.
Franticly he looked for any sort of cover, the only object around was a supply crate which he scrambled to get behind it before the explosion went off.
He got behind it a matter of seconds before the timer hit zero.
KRAK! The crate slammed into Azhaq knocking him a good 10ft down the corridor and into the wall. There was a sharp crack as his shields were disabled from the impact, Thats going to leave a mark, he groaned.
Shaking his head Azhaq started to get back up an
