Coming soon, a new character is introduced. Also, Squad 403 tests out some new equipment. Emphasis on the new.

Chapter 1: RoomEdit

I sat typing on my laptop, bored in my quarters. As I closed my laptop, Caden burst in.

"Dude, where are you?" He asked me.

"What do you mean?" I asked.

"We're testing out the new equipment in the holo-room! Cmon!" He shouted. I had completely forgot.

I dashed out towards the holo-room.

When I finally made it, I put my hand on the console and passed out. It was an odd feeling, everything going black, and suddenly you are somewhere else. When I opened my eyes, I was in a large room, full of equipment. My squad was running around testing new equipment. A man stood in the middle of the room with a data pad.

"Ah, Spartan-712, glad you could make it, we have a very important piece of technology for you."

I heard a scream and turned around. Hunter was flying right into the wall. He collapsed on the ground.

"The jetpack...needs some tweaks!" he yelled.

The man held up a simple data chip in his hand. It lit up, and suddenly a one foot tall spartan stood in his hand. It was a projection, and it glowed blue.

"Meet Kappa," The man said. The blue spartan looked at me.

He spoke with a british accent at me "This is my assiagnment?"

"Uh, I guess," I said, staring at the spartan.

"I am UNSC AI K-085QZ, you may call me Kappa. "

"He's yours," the man said.

Chapter 2: Foundry (Holo-map simulator)Edit

"What do you mean mine?" I asked.

"This AI has been assigned to you, he will assist you in battle."

"Yes," The AI said, "I only require a link to your armor. Your sword will do."

I held out Pulse tentively, and the man inserted a data chip into it.
