Unfair Advantages (Commission)

Commission for :icontomlinkens: of his character Catina-A131 and my ONI Lieutenant Commander Vincent Lafayette II engaged in a friendly (?) fencing match. He's used to his duels going a bit more favorably for him, but then he doesn't usually spar against Spartans. And he doesn't like actual challenges. He probably doesn't even really like fencing; he just does it because it's fancy. Or, well, he did -- until he suffered a tragic case of falling from the upper floors of a mega-skyscraper thanks to a misunderstanding (or, at least, what was very convincingly made to look like one) by other ONI operatives.

Fencing in uniform? Sounds a bit more like a spur of the moment thing when they were passing each other in the hall. The ONI earrings are a nice touch, and as always your details on the face are superb.

As the backstory is that Lieutenant Commander Lafayette was as instrumental in her joining the Spartan III Program,as the Covenant were when they glassed Biko when she was four years old. A Fencing Duel while she is wearing her dress whites. That would rate as friendly competition, when compared to the odd moment that a Jackal, Drone, or a Grunt was at her mercy, and she didn't know the meaning of the word.
Her known sadistic behavior towards covies also applies to a San 'Shyuum she got her hands on during Operation Exiter, which coincided with The Great Schism. But her plans for the little shit were interrupted by a group of vengeful Sangheili who heard him scream.
That moment in detail: A131 had shoved her armored thumb into one of his eyes. Seconds later the angry mob of Sangheili could be heard running towards both of them through a CAS Carrier's hallway, forcing her to stomp on the prophet's foot/ankle, and make a hasty retreat. Leaving the prophet to the Sangheili he just betrayed, particularly The Fleetmaster.
