Isaac - 021
Isaac saluted the blackness of space as the ship shot out the bodies of his team mates, being laid to eternal rest in their black coffins. He wasn't sure how to feel, he had lost comrades before, but he had grown use to it. He hadn't been with them long enough, they were caught in a Covenant Elite ambush. He remembered watching, he turned to the private just as a plasma bolt ripped through his shield and smashed him in the chest. He dropped the salute but stood at attention, his black dress uniform made him stand out from everyone else as the twenty-one gun salute sounded. He had his team wear black instead of the regulation white, he wanted them to know they were different, he wanted them to accept it.
He was so in focused he didn't see Captain Swafford walk up "It never gets easier does it. I can't begin to know what it's like to be a Spartan but losing a man is never easy." Issac turned to face him, snapping off a perfectly drilled salute "It's what we do sir, but Spartans never die, remember." Swafford chuckled and turned to walk away. Seeing nothing more he could do here, Isaac walked off to meet the other squad meets.
