create a character of the halo universe, and I'll try and turn it into a fanfic, the more the merrier. the only rule I have is don't get too ridiculous and try and make a name that would sound canon. halo.wikia.com will give you how covenant names are pronounced.
my character and example:
Name: Suon Mactamee
Race: Sangheili (elite)
Birthplace: Sangheilios, Mactam Kaidon
Rank: Honor Guard
description: Born in Mactam Kaidon of Sangheili, Suon was raised like any other Sangheili, seperated from immediate family to determine rank not on family, but on acheivements. Suon himself scored moderately high and was given rank as soon as he came of age. Suon served in many battles in the Human Covenant War (earning the rank of atleast major) before being asked by the councilers to serve in the Honor Guard, which Suon readily accepted. No notible achievements came from Suon until the changing of the guard in 2552. When approached by Jiralhanae, Suon stood his ground, not taking off his headpiece or relinquishing his stave. When One attempted to take the stave from him, he drew his sword and cut him down, forcing the others to take action. Suon killed seven Brutes before being killed himself from a Brute Shot grenade. His corpse was left in the slums of High Charity and His honor was revoked. it wasn't until after the Great Schism that Suon was honored as one of the first Sangheili to stand against the Brutes Tyranny.

Russian 6th Guard
Name: Afanasi Vasiliev
Birthplace: Smolensk, Russia
Rank: Lt. Colonel
description: Afanasi was born in Smolensk, Russia in 2510. When he was 15 years old, he heard about an alien attack on Harvest. The majority of his family had lived their and now he had only his parents left. From that moment on, he swore an oath to protect Earth at all costs. When he was 18, he enlisted into the United Nations Colonial Militia and rose up in the ranks quickly. He became a Staff Sergeant after his actions in the Moscow Riots of 2533. He then left the United Nations Colonial Militia to attend Officer Candidate School. After graduating from Quantico, Virginia, he was commissioned as a 2nd. Lieutenant and was immediately shipped to partake in the Battle of Leonis Minoris. His quick thinking saved over 300 civilians on Colony-2 before it was glassed. He was awarded the Colonial Cross and Gold Star for his actions. He was also given a promotion to Lieutenant Colonel and transfered to Head of UNSC Colonial Militia. He saw less action other than several Rebel incidents and some riots. During the 1st Battle of Earth, he organized a defense of Smolensk that took the full blow from a Covenant Carrier's attack. They fought it back, but not before half the city was gone, and 3/4th's of the Militia in all of Russia gone. Heeding the call that the Covenant were interested in the area, he called for some reinforcements from neighboring nations and the force grew to 130,000 strong, with some UNSC Marines and Army personal helping. The set-up defenses during the interlude between the 1st and 2nd Battle of Earth. When the 2nd Batte came around, he was faced with a decision that haunted him. In order to save the area, he had to destroy the area. He later wrote a memoir of his life and experiences.

Oh yeah, 5 planets were discovered made ENTIRELY out of this metal, so we used the gravitational forces of a supermassive black hole to break up these planets into small manageable pieces, then hauled the pieces to ship factories and churned out ships. Even with them broken into pieces, the smallest chunk was one and a half times the size of Earth's moon, so we made a new class of ship, the Devastator-class. [The other classes of ships are still in service, however.]
Each Devastator commands it's own fleet of ships, designated a Devastator battlegroup.
For high priority missions, a Devastator fleet is assembled. This is usually 3 Devastator battlegroups in one.
Only once was a Devastator armada assembled. A Devastator armada is 10 Devastator FLEETS in one. That was to travel to the Flood home galaxy and raze the parasite. [Mission accomplished. Flood are extinct.]
Name: William Maverick
Birthplace: Alberta, Canada
Lifespan: 2512-2583 (Sorry if his age doesn't match the timeline, I've only read one Halo book)
Description: One of the newer generations of Spartans and separated at the age of 6 like all Spartans, he was one of the unrecognized during the main part of the war. Little was it known that he was supposed to be kept discreet as he was part of a special ops team that did secret work on Covenant forces. During Reach he was posted in a military base in charge of a squadron of over 500 marines as a Commander. After the Covenant began to advance, they were forced to retreat to where he thought there was reinforcements. Instead of finding the help and supplies that he desperately needed for his troops, they found dead marine and elite bodies littering the ground. The Covenant was still advancing and there was little time to spare. He spotted 3 abandoned phantoms lying on their sides and Warthogs and other vehicles that were barely functional. Realizing that they wouldn't have enough time for all of them to board the different vehicles, he forced them to retreat and prepared to distract the Covenant long enough for his men to escape. While looking through the large weapon choice available due to the catastrophe that he found, he gathered up a Spartan laser with half charge, a sniper, and dual energy swords. As the Covenant got closer, he used the Spartan laser to shoot down the incoming phantoms, which dropped onto the advancing troops. The laser ran out of energy as he shot the last phantom, so he switched to his sniper. Being a Spartan he was one of the best trained all around military personnel and this included his knowledge of weaponry. He tore down the enemy forces with a trained eye. And he shot down 80 elites before the clip ran out. He didn't have time to find more bullets as by then the rest of the army had reached him. Taking out both energy swords he charged and began a mad assault, tearing down any enemies near him. The Covenants were firing desperately to try to take down this demon-like foe but to no avail. He killed more then half of their forces before exhaustion overtook him. He fell to the ground panting, and they swarmed him...when a bright light shone through the mob. The squadron he had saved had gotten help! The mob turned to see incoming tanks and hornets. Realizing they had no chance they fled. Will or Spartan-102 was bedridden for days. After feeling well enough to walk again, he went to the ceremony in his honor, and received his new title of Brigadier-General. He continued to provide strategical and physical help, and continued to serve until he was killed during an assault on the main UNSC headquarters on Earth. He once again sacrificed himself to save others.
Name: Gray Reid
Birthplace: New Harmony
Rank: Spartan III headhunter
Bio: mostly followed his orders but never fully grasped how desperate humanity was in its fight for survival. Arrogant, and thought the covanent were just a bunch of stupid bugs that couldn't hit for sh*t. A pivotal moment in his life was the covanent attacked a human colony, Gray and his fellow headhunter were sent behind the enemy lines on the planet to stall so the UNSC could evacuate the colonists, before Gray's evac arrived he witnessed the planet begining to get glassed. in that moment he realised how low humanity's chance was. his next mission involved him and fellow headhunter on an island where the covanent began a mining facility and to cause chaos and ultimately dissable the faucility. in the end of that mission his fellow headhunter died in the destruction of the island and Gray barely makes it out alive. he never gets used to the replacement
