Well, the Insurrectionists wanted to be free from the UNSC's government, so in the effort to do that, they built many hidden bases, some even inside astroids. So, even if they cared, they would expect the UNSC to let them have a few planets all their own. And since the Spartan II's actions against them increased both sides hatred of each other. Besides, what would you do if you had a fleet of makeshift combat ships, and the only way to get supplies is from the black market or spies; would you fight or hide?
P.S. For those who don't know, the Spartan II's were made to combat the Insurrectionists.
I know all of that, but it just seems that once the Covenant War starts, hindering the UNSC just hurts humanity's chances of survival. I remember in The Cole Protocol where the Covenant actually used the Insurrection's black market to locate and destroy two human planets and very nearly found Earth.
The Insurrectionists harbor no care for the UNSC (save for the one time in Halo: First Strike, where they helped repair their ship). However, they would fight the Covenant if they need to, because the survival instinct kicks in. But, the Insurrectionists don't want to fight the UNSC's war with the Covenant. Besides, the war would have NEVER happened had the Covenant gave a chance for the humans to join, or at least form a truce, but Truth, learning of the Humans being the true decendants of the Forerunners, declared war on humanity to save his covenant.
But some Insurrectionist groups dissolved once the Covenant entered the fray. Especially since the UNSC was the most well equipped to fight them. Espionage was a weapon of choice for the Innies against the UNSC. Espionage is useless against the Covenant, since virtually all Covenant would kill any human on site, or torture them.
The issue isn't their love for the UNSC, but rather their love for the human race. Obviously, the UNSC is the only force that stands any chance at all at holding back the Covenant, yet the Innies continue to disrupt their efforts. It seems that they've put their political cause over the survival of the species.
No, there's nothing wrong with Slayer, far from it. What I'm saying is that in any given goal-oriented game, there are people that don't try to help meet that goal and instead just run around trying to kill random enemies AS IF they were playing Slayer.
Its a problem of scale, yes, to compare it to the Insurrectionists, but both groups are putting their own interests (points/freedom or whatever) ahead of the needs of the group (the team/the race)
I usually would have shuddered after reading the last paragraph of her Incarceration, especially with the questionable context of the term "Interrogation." But after seeing what she did to Fort Overlook, I couldn't hide my smile.
Nicely done. I like seeing even secondary characters being given their due with a solid background.
Many of these details were always in my head as I wrote/drew the comic, but sometimes there just wasn't space in the pacing to go into this stuff, or simply a character who could relate the information. This adjunct section gives me a chance to do all that. Glad there's a few who are digging it.
Half of me still wants to understand them rebels and see what is it about the UNSc that gets them so angry. The other, darker half wants to see the look on their faces when the Covenant arrives. Great job with the biography's detail!
