“Do you enjoy the slaughter?”
— Prophet of Regret
“I feel the joy of doing what I was born to. I have no regrets… save that I will not die fighting.”
— Ripa 'Moramee
Ripa 'Moramee[2] was a Sangheili Commander of the Covenant Army during the Harvest Campaign and other Outer Colony campaigns until his demise in 2531. After being punished for leading a coup against his clan leadership and failing on Decided Heart, he was given the rank of Arbiter by the Hierarchs, mainly at the urging of the Prophet of Regret.

In his new role, he led the Covenant attack on Harvest and the excavations of a Forerunner artifact on the planet's surface. Shortly afterward, he assisted the Prophet of Regret in an attempt to reactivate a dormant Forerunner fleet on Shield 0459, for which purpose he kidnapped the human scientist Ellen Anders on Arcadia. This led to a series of violent engagements against forces led by Captain Cutter of the UNSC Spirit of Fire, and the eventual death of 'Moramee at the hands of Sergeant Forge during the Covenant assault on SPARTAN Red Team, who were attempting to destroy the artificial planet with the Spirit of Fire's removed FTL Reactor.[2]

Biography
Early career
“I live only to serve the Holy One. What task awaits your Arbiter?”
— Ripa 'Moramee to the Prophet of Regret
Ripa 'Moramee's first known military action was the suppression of the Sixteenth Unggoy Disobedience and ending the heretical reign of a Kig-Yar Pirate Prince. Later, he attempted a coup within his clan on Decided Heart; the coup failed, and he was imprisoned in the Weeping Shadows of Sorrow penitentiary, for both his insubordination and failure. 'Moramee would have died in the prison had it not been for the intervention of the Hierarchs - specifically the Prophet of Regret - who appointed him as the Arbiter, and tasked him with conducting the war of extermination against humanity and uncovering Forerunner artifacts. It was a decision that led to concerned mumblings amongst the Prophets' Honor Guards, who had no prior knowledge of this plan.[2] He was not selected just for his combat record alone; the Covenant leaders believed that he, as the new Arbiter, would not ask politically inconvenient questions (an important factor given the secret status of humanity as Forerunner-designated Reclaimers).[3] The creation of a new Arbiter caused a split in the Covenant: an ever-growing faction of Sangheili, who were opposed to the new Prophets, seized control of several Forerunner relics, including one that supposedly contained a "key" of some sort. The Arbiter was sent by the Hierarchs to end this rebellion, resulting in a vicious battle that raged for days which ended with the destruction of many heretics. The mysterious key, however, was never found.[4]

Harvest
Ripa 'Moramee and Re'gish Wamik uncover the Forerunner structure on Harvest.
“I care not for your little life! Open the relic!”
— Ripa 'Moramee overruling Field Master Re'gish Wamik's objections to entering the Forerunner artifact on Harvest.
'Moramee was present at the Harvest Campaign in 2531. The UNSC was aware of his presence but was unable to gather more than cursory intelligence on him.[5] Ripa 'Moramee oversaw the excavation of a Forerunner site in the planet's northern polar region.[3] The installation's entrance was uncovered by Field Master Re'gish Wamik, and the area was quickly investigated by Covenant forces.

Despite concerns by Field Master Wamik that the humans would "defile" the installation, 'Moramee pressed on due to the impatience and pressure of the Hierarchs. With the UNSC closing in, the Prophet of Regret ordered him to destroy the installation and return to the Covenant with the information he had gathered. Ripa 'Moramee was reluctant to destroy the Forerunner construction but complied nonetheless upon the continued insistence of the Prophet.[6] The attempt to destroy the relic failed when the demolition teams were thwarted by UNSC ground forces deployed from the orbiting Spirit of Fire.

The Shield World
The Arbiter discusses plans with the Prophet of Regret on Shield 0459.
“The Ancients have granted us the power to doom your race. Let the deconstruction of our great gifts begin! The majesty of our new fleet will be unparalleled!”
— Ripa 'Moramee, to Professor Ellen Anders, upon the activation of the dormant Forerunner fleet on the Shield World
The information from the Forerunner structure on Harvest led the Covenant to Arcadia, where a collection of Forerunner ruins was discovered. These ruins, in turn, revealed the location of a Forerunner Shield World, which 'Moramee and the Prophet of Regret immediately travelled to.

Ripa 'Moramee was involved in a Covenant attempt to activate a dormant fleet of Forerunner Dreadnought|Forerunner ships from the Shield World. However, 'Moramee was concerned about why he was not fulfilling his task of destroying humanity, when he should command all their forces for a frontal assault; Regret stated that they need the Forerunner ships to increase the size of their fleets, so that the Covenant won't have to dedicate all their forces for the war effort and thus leave themselves defenseless. After Covenant attempts to interface with the Forerunner technology failed, 'Moramee was sent on a mission to capture Ellen Anders after the First Battle of Arcadia by the Prophet of Regret, as it was believed she would have information and knowledge of how to interface with Forerunner structures that the Covenant did not. The Arbiter successfully captured her despite Sergeant John Forge's intervention and escaped in a Spirit to an awaiting ship.

Name: Jessica Banes
Siblings: Mikaela Banes 
Age: 17
Gender: Female
Likes: Racing, writing, gambling, drawing, and fixing cars
Dislikes: losing, not getting what she wants, and owing money
Personality: Blunt, bold, funny, sarcastic, caring, and smart
Bio: she is the younger sister to the one and only Mikaela Banes. When her father was stealing cars, she and Mikaela had little choice but to go with it. And it started when she was around 14. When her father was arrested, she and Mikaela started working in an mechanic ship, just until one of them had enough money to switch jobs. When Jessica had enough of working there, she became a taxi driver part time. But when she got into a serious car accident, killing one of her passengers, she went on to street racing. At first, Mikaela came with her, but soon, she was in it alone. By 17, she was one of the best racers there. She could beat most guys there. No challenge was passed up. She owed money to people, people she shouldn't mess with. But still. She was run off the road on a race, and after her car flipped, she went to visit Mikaela. The time she did, though, happened to be the day they met Bumblebee. An awesome car, a fast one. Eventually, she became attached. And despite all the danger, her and Bee still raced, and she even fixed him when she needed to. 
Friends: Sam, Joey (me), Mikaela (aslo me), and Miles
Guardian: Bumblebee
