Service Tag - JUGS
Weapon of choice - Gravity Hammer and Plasma Grenades
Brief Background Description - ever since he was little Jax had always preferred to be alone. Was never anything personal, he just liked the quiet. He found his trusty grav hammer off of his first dead brute chieftain and it had always been one of his favorite weapons. As such he had started to excel in hand to hand combat. And he had always kept a supply of plasma grenades since he always had the best aim out of any other Spartan with them. Now with the war with the covies over, he is just looking for the next big fight.

Spartan Name: Mikau "Wolf" Laruto

Eye Color: Gray
Hair: Black; IONI requirement of hair length
Height: Shorter than the average Spartan
Other Details: Each canine tooth has been filed to appear sharp; Tattoo of a running fox on his arm (the emblem of his old unit)

Armor: OCEANIC armor with the RAIDER helmet

Service Tag: WOLF

Weapon of Choice: Assault Rifle customized with HAZOP modifications in order to withstand harsh environments (i.e. underwater, freezing temperatures, melting temperatures, mud, etc.)


Born on the planet Terceira on the outer rim of the galaxy in BLUE controlled space, Mikau Laruto was a pacifist who refused to have anything do with the war. Growing up on a colony town on the entirely ocean planet, Laruto planned to live his life as a medical practitioner saving lives instead of taking them like the other bloodthirsty recruits planned to do that signed up to the Brotherhood or Empire. As much as he strayed away from anything that had to do with the war, Laruto did not expect that it would be brought to his front door step.

Brotherhood ships came to the colony and immediately seized control of the government and established an occupation. The Brotherhood found "strategic interests" in the ocean planet, Terceira, for they believed in it's inscrutable depths lied an ancient, artificial element made by the mythical Forerunners. Forcing the denizens into internment camps and slave labor, many of the natives suffered from extreme physical labor and starvation. Laruto lived long enough to watch his family die of exhaustion. The only thing driving him to live was his duty in providing the other captured natives medical care. Months later, only the stronger men had survived the labor from the past months and were being kept in cages like animals.

It was then that fire fell from the sky and gunshots rang out throughout the colony. The Empire had sent an attachment of Orbital Drop Shock Troopers to liberate the colony from Brotherhood forces. An ODST opened Laruto's cage and found him barely alive next to the rotting corpses. The ODST extended his hand and helped Laruto out of his cage. That was the day Laruto met Gunnery Sergeant Ryan Webber, an ODST of the Royal Enforcement Deployment Division. Grateful to his liberators, Laruto offered to help the Empire in anyway he could. Laruto started native militias across his homeworld in order to free the other colonies and aid the Empire. Being one of the "Fox Legion" troopers, Laruto and his comrades were deployed to infiltration and sabotage strike on BLUE underwater mining and attack vessels. After about two years of naval warfare, the BLUE were repelled from the planet but on the final strike against the Brotherhood, most of the Fox Legion were killed leaving Laruto one of the sole survivors with critical injuries.

His body was transported to an Imperial research facility codenamed "Lockout" where he spent most of his days in a specimen tank. It was there that IONI (Imperial Office of Naval Intelligence) had begun the process in turning Laruto into a Spartan III. After completing the required physical and mental requirements he was outfitted for his set of OCEANIC armor. One day, while he was completing tests in his new armor, Wolf (as Laruto was now being referred to since he started the spartan transformation) spotted a familiar face on a stretcher. It was Sergeant Webber, the ODST that had freed him more than 2 years ago. He appeared stable but his arm had been amputated from a wound he had taken from a brotherhood sangheilli ambush where he was attacked by an sangheilli with an energy sword. Wolf felt he owed his life to Webber so without hesitation he helped the scientists at Lockout speed up his recovery and install a prosthetic arm with heightened reflexes and strength. During his sleep one night, Wolf was transferred to an IONI cruiser somewhere far off in space. It was there that they sped up his training and outfitted him for the RAIDER helmet (a helmet with all the components of his old OCEANIC helmet but with updated communication modules and sensory range for land combat). Unbeknownst to him, he was a lab rat for a top secret project IONI had started and he "belonged to IONI now".

The Empire was not prepared for the assault on Reach. Desperate times called for desperate measures and REDD was forced to sent any asset they could, even IONI's "classified project". Wolf was immediately enlisted in the initial roster for IONI's project, REDWATCH, as the team's designated field medic. Forced to fight along other spartans he had never met (except for Webber who had been promoted and handpicked by IONI to lead REDWATCH), Wolf fought countless battles with his new comrades and eventually wiped the rebels from the planet.

Peace is often an unstable truth, so Wolf had learned.

Soon REDWATCH would be deployed once more to fight the Brotherhood...

Other Significant Details (What makes your character unique?): Wolf doesn't like killing (even though he is well trained in the act thanks to IONI). In fact, he tries to subdue enemies into making them surrender to the best of his ability and will only kill when it is absolutely necessary. Wolf plays more of a support role as the caretaker of the squad, gladly healing troops than killing them. He also does not hold a grudge against the Brotherhood for their atrocities back on his home planet (as holding hate contradicts his religion). He sees his role in the war as "a fate" or duty that he can only accept.
