Noble Team

Presenting Noble Team from the UNSC Special Warefare Command Group Three.

From left to right: Chief Warrant Officer Jorge-052 (Noble 5); Lieutenant Commander Catherine "Kat" B320 (Noble 2); Commander Carter-A259 (Noble 1); Warrant Officer Emile-A239 (Noble 4); and Lieutenant SPARTAN-B312 (Noble 6).

It took me a while to realize just how "Bio-Man" this image is: You have a leader, a cocky shorter female, a heavy guy, a silent but deadly guy and a "Kid" (Noble 6). The only Spartan from Noble Team I have missing is the survivor, Warrant Officer Jun-A266 (Noble 3) who escorted Dr. Catherine Halsey to safety while the surviving members of Noble Team went to their deaths.

The above arrangement is based upon a very popular promotional art released for the video game Halo Reach as seen here.

What's so iconic about this image is that it also portrays Noble Team in the order of their deaths. 

Noble Team perished in the following order:
  • Jorge-052 Noble 5 was killed saving Operation Uppercut - and pretty much everyone else; 
  • Kat-B320 Noble 2 was killed by a sniper; 
  • Carter-A259 sacrificed himself so that Nobles 4 & 6 could complete their mission; 
  • Emile A239 Emile was killed in a knife fight with the Covenant, and; 
  • Noble 6 - well if you played the game, then you know how you died. 
Hopefully by the end of the year I'll have the missing Spartan.
