Heretic, Hero by Tekka-Croe Heretic, Hero by Tekka-Croe
Another illustration for the Halo story which :iconthe-crimson-wolf: and I have worked on in the past.

"Human weapons are primitive and barbaric, and they are also ideally suited to comprehensively dismantling Flood forms." -Harran Montorsee

This is one of the main characters, Harran Montorsee (or Harran Montors, having removed the "ee" honorific following the Great Schism), a Special Ops Elite who leads a Flood-containment squad. Crimson Wolf actually came up with this guy's back story a very long time ago: He's one of the SpecOps Elites who accompanied the Arbiter into the Library on Delta Halo in Halo 2. During that mission he had a... bonding experience with a shotgun, and as a result he and his team employ Human weapons such as the shotgun and flamethrower to great effect, regardless of any taboo this may incur.

The beam shield was inspired by a piece of early unused concept art for Halo CE, by Bungie concept artist Shi Kai Wang.

This is the way badasses do it. Get a kig-yar shield and a shotgun maybe a rocket launcher secondary weapon and you've got an invincible foe. It makes you wonder what the war would have been like if they gave hunters energy shields and personal shields too. "Shudders" poor Chief.
