Biography[edit]

Battle for Zeta Halo[edit]

Main article: Battle for Zeta Halo

On December 12, 2559, Robin Dimik was aboard the UNSC Infinity when it was ambushed by Banished forces upon arrival at Installation 07. As the Infinity fell to the Banished assault, Dimik was evacuated onboard the lifeboat Papa Tango Delta Zero Nine piloted by TJ Murphy. During its escape from the flagship, Dimik's lifeboat flew through a destroyed Banished dreadnought, but it lost its back section to weapon fire, and spun out of control as it entered the ring's atmosphere.[3]

Dimik's lifeboat crash-landed on the surface of the ring, and was lodged inside a crevice, leaving its occupants trapped. The crew took turns transmitting a distress call, which was answered by Spartan-IV Tomas Horvath of Fireteam Intrepid.[1] However, after the explosion on the ring and its sudden slipspace jump, they lost contact with Horvath. The event, which fractured the ring, also buried the lifeboat deeper into the crevice, until Spartan Bonita Stone arrived and tore open the lifeboat's hull to pull out each survivor, including Dimik.[4] Over the next six days, Dimik and other lifeboat survivors travelled across the region with Spartan Stone. They eventually rendezvoused with another group of survivors led by Spartan Nina Kovan.[5] The combined group became the "boat crew". Led by Stone and Kovan, they travelled to the UNSC stronghold at the wreckage of the UNSC Mortal Reverie;[2] they arrived on December 19.[6] Dimik was assigned to the weapons and ordinance stockpiles,[7][8] likely due to her understanding in preventing and de-escalating of explosives or fires as a safety specialist.[1]

Dimik participated in the defense of the Reverie when the Banished launched an assault on the wreckage on January 31, 2560. Along with other members of the boat crew, she was stationed at the secondary barricade.[9] On February 2, as the UNSC defenses fell to the Banished assault, Dimik and Isaiah Cameron fought alongside each other as the secondary barricade overran with Banished forces,[10] before fleeing along with other UNSC survivors.[11] Dimik and the rest of the boat crew—minus Lucas Browning, who drew Banished away from the group and was captured—hid in a cave from the Banished; they waited until Kovan returned with supplies, then set off on the morning of February 5.[12]

Over the next month, Dimik and the rest of the boat crew travelled across the region with Kovan; with the enactment of the Rubicon Protocol, the group was resolved to deter the Banished's efforts.[13] Led by Kovan, the boat crew carried out numerous guerilla operations against the Banished.[14] On April 18, they reunited with Spartan Stone.[15] The group noticed the increased air traffic towards the Reverie—now a Banished outpost named after the Chieftain who led the assault on the wreckage—and decided to investigate. Arriving at the area on 22 April, while Kovan and Stone investigated the newly-constructed outpost,[16] Dimik and the rest of the boat crew made a supply run to scavenge from a ledge that caught some of the supplies the Banished had thrown into the chasm below the outpost. They linked up with only Kovan at the camp.[17]

On April 27, Murphy confronted Kovan—questioning why Stone had not rejoined the group at the camp and why Kovan refused to divulge why—and it was revealed that Stone had entered the Forerunner subterranean structure underneath the outpost to investigate the Banished excavation. More importantly, Browning was alive, and the Spartans kept that a secret, knowing the rest of the boat crew would want to launch a rescue. At Murphy's decision, the boat crew followed Kovan back to Outpost Tremonius to track down Stone. They snuck into the outpost and took the Banished elevator into the Forerunner subterranean structure underneath. There, they discovered Stone's lifeless body and recovered a data chip Stone had hidden away from her killer. with the Banished taking the elevator down, the boat crew was forced to escape by venturing deeper into the facility. Hours later, while they were resting, the boat crew was approached by submonitor 091 Adjutant Veridity, who revealed Stone's data chip contained data the Banished had stolen from the ring's Conspectus network, including the ring's galactic coordinates. The boat crew realized they could transmit the data to the UNSC to summon reinforcements, but doing so required the Installation's monitor 117649 Despondent Pyre's support to decrypt the data. Under Veridity's guidance, the boat crew set out to the monitor's facility, the Conservatory, to free Pyre from Cortana's lockdown.[17]

On May 3, while en route to the Conservatory, the boat crew linked up with Spartan Tomas Horvath, who was separated from UNSC forces since the ring fractured nearly six months ago.[18] That evening, Dimik and the rest of the crew caught up with Horvath. They decided to use one of ring's beacon towers as a supraluminal communications array to broadcast the ring's location to UNSC space and summon reinforcements. In order to access the beacon tower, however, they still needed to release Despondent Pyre.[19]

On May 9, the team arrived at the Conservatory's main chamber, Pyre's Cradle. Pyre, along with a number of submonitors, were sequestered by Cortana within an energy barrier. As a human and thus, a Reclaimer, Horvath was able to deactivate the barrier and awaken the monitors. Although Pyre was initially uninterested in offering any assistance, upon hearing news of the Harbinger being released, the monitor granted access to the beacon towers. She also gave the humans a data key that they must insert into the central plinth of a beacon tower in order to transmit the ring's location and data to human-occupied space. However, Pyre ordered Veridity to remain with her to counter the Harbinger, leaving Dimik and the other humans to travel to the beacon tower without Veridity’s presence.[20]

On May 14, the team translocated to the vicinity of a beacon tower near the Conservatory. Dimik and Cameron placed explosives at a wooded ravine leading to the beacon while Horvath provided overwatch. As they detonated the explosives, the beacon tower fired its supraluminal message to UNSC space, and the two raced towards the beacon tower.[21] However, a massive number of Banished reinforcements attacked the beacon tower, led by Jega 'Rdomnai. While Dimik was able to escape her pursuers, Cameron was run down and killed by a Banished Terror Wraith after he was unable to get out of the way in time.[22]

In the ensuing battle, while Horvath dueled with Gorian, a Jiralhanae Bloodstar in the Banished, Dimik snuck closer to left a spike grenade for Horvath. Horvath returned the favor by using his pulse carbine to kill two Kig-Yar approaching Dimik. Horvath used the spike grenade to disable Gorian’s energy shields, then delivered the killing blow with an energy sword given to him earlier by Erik Bender.[22] However, the Spartan was teleported away because his duel with Gorian left him on a translocation pad, which was then destroyed by a Thrasher missile after teleporting the Spartan away.[23] At around the same time, Dimik took a plasma round in the shoulder from Banished forces while she scrambled to rejoin Bender and Kovan.[22] As the Banished surrounded the trio, they were rescued by Veridity, who flew in and fired her focus beam at the Banished, then teleported the survivors to another location before disappearing. The three spent the next four days treating their wounds and repairing equipment; Kovan treated the wound on Dimik's shoulder and a few other superficial wounds with biofoam. As the three rested and contemplated their wins and losses at the beacon tower, they agreed their next step would be rescuing Browning from the Tower.[24]

Personality and traits[edit]

Dimik has short pink-tipped hair. She has tattoos up both her arms.[4]

According to Browning, during the Battle for Zeta Halo, Dimik has taken a liking in Murphy, as he noticed Dimik has, on multiple occasions, stolen subtle glances at Murphy.[25]

As a safety specialist onboard the Infinity, Dimik wore a work overalls and a white tank.[4] Later during the conflict on Installation 07, Dimik developed an expertise and enthusiasm in mixing explosives; she carried an M41D SPNKr on her back,[18] while wearing a vest—as well as carrying a rucksack—filled with ordnance, grenades, and explosives.[21]
