During the augmentation procedures, René was crippled by the surgeries and could not continue his/her military career as a SPARTAN-II supersoldier. Despite René's now defective body, Chief Petty Officer Franklin Mendez noted that he/she and the others who could no longer fight still had keen minds. These "washouts" were reassigned to a non-combat position within the UNSC Navy, specifically planning missions, analyzing data, and troubleshooting operations.
John-117 last saw René in a neutral-buoyancy gel tank, breathing through a respirator alongside Kirk-018, whose skeletal system, due to the carbide ceramic bone ossification, was also disfigured beyond recognition like René's. René and the other injured SPARTANs were taken out of the launch chamber of the UNSC Atlas by a few crewman shortly after their surgical enhancements were completed. René and the other washouts were likely permanently reassigned to Office of Naval Intelligence.
