"Step away from that cash machine, or I'm going to blow your pretty head off!"
—Crone, to Sadie.

The Crone was a resident of New Mombasa during the Covenant invasion of Earth. In Sadie's Story, she took the title character hostage at a casino in Manyimbo.[1]

Biography[edit]

Needing to find a cash machine with a video phone, Sadie Endesha entered a casino. The casino was being vandalized by the Crone and other looters. Vergil generated fake police sirens in an attempt to scare off the looters; the Crone, however, recognized the noise as a "neat little trick" and continued to loot the building.

The Crone took Sadie at gunpoint while prying open a cash machine. When a Covenant Phantom landed outside, Sadie took cover, but the Crone continued to loot the machine. A Brute attacked, ripping the machine off the wall and pinning the Crone beneath it. Believing that the Brutes were after "her" money, the Crone attempted to defend it; she failed to fend off the attackers, and one of them executed her with a Mauler.

The Crone was evidently a compulsive gambler who felt she was owed the money she lost by the casinos and that this justified her actions. She also called Sadie a "slut" despite apparently having never met her before, most probably because she was spouting inappropriate drivel in her maddened state.
