Halo: Uprising Issue 2
John-117 is questioned about where the Key of Osanalan is on the Forerunner Dreadnought, while Io Station tries to contact him. The Brute Chieftain interrogates the Chief, asking about the Key of Osanalan and he gives a reply, telling him it meant "to always strip your enemies of weapons before you interrogate him." He promptly sticks a plasma grenade on the Chieftain's groin, blowing him and several Grunts and Jackals nearby away. Some surviving Grunts get together, trying to find the escaped Chief.
The scene cuts to Cleveland, where the humans are gathered together, questioned by a Brute about the Key of Osanalan, Ruwan knows exactly what it was. The Brute, ordering the humans to bring him the key, got his sentence cut off, and is attacked by ODST troops dropping off from Hornets. Everyone flees, and as Myras Tyla escapes with Ruwan, she questions how she had lived her life, and blames it all on her boyfriend, Philip. With twisted fervor, she pushes herself to escape, while thinking of spending a new life with Ruwan. She picks up a fallen plasma pistol.
Everything is chaos; Myras, having found Ruwan, escapes together, riding a Warthog to safety. They head to a section of the city not under attack, Myras killing off three Grunts with an overcharged plasma pistol. They help themselves to some supplies on the Warthog, and set up a little camp for themselves. They chatted a while, and almost kissed. Suddenly, the ground shakes and chunking sounds are heard as a Scarab appears while they run to relative safety.
Back on the Forerunner ship, the Chief kills off some patrolling Grunts. Switching to a Type-51 Carbine, he heads to another section of the ship. When he arrives at Truth's chambers, he holds up his carbine, sights the Prophet of Truth, and fires a round.
