after fighting off a whole group of Covenant, the squad makes their way out of the city in search of another lost squad member, Justin. they aren't getting any stress signals from him so they think the best way of finding him is going on the New Mombasa highways since Nick, before he met up with Christine, got a stress signal from one of their squad mates on the highway. but as they are about to get on the highway, they run into a Commando elite named Orzo. the elite use to be part of a whole squad of elites but once they were deployed on to New Mombasa, the brutes killed most of them, Orzo bearly escaped.
the elite however, is not certain about this new alliance with the humans. Zonlan talks to him about the Prophets, how they betrayed them, and that they left the Covenant and soon Orzo understands.
