Terminal (Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary)/Nine
From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
Campaign level: Keyes (video-guide)
Fade in to Jacob Keyes' eyes. They are shut, with a pained expression.
A bright sun rises amidst a cloudy sky.
Keyes' name patch and medals are shown.
Fade to black, then to Keyes' closed eyes.
Keyes imagines himself standing at attention in uniform, saluting.
Keyes' memories take him back to the Flood containment facility, as his contingent of Marines battle the Flood. All hell breaks loose in slow-motion; every sound is distorted as though underwater.
The Marines open fire at a charging combat form, to little effect. A Marine runs away from a horde of Flood as another is overwhelmed behind him. Keyes is shown, screaming.
Keyes' eyes have opened. He is now part of the Proto-Gravemind.
Keyes imagines himself standing at attention again.
The Keyes standing at attention screams as his arm mutates to that of a Flood combat form. Blood pours out of his stomach.
A partially-infected Keyes is shown firing an assault rifle.
Human teeth flash for a moment.
Keyes' eyes look around in terror. A human combat form flashes by, as Keyes screams again.
Jacob imagines his daughter Miranda, as an adult and in her uniform.
Fade to another shot of Miranda, who vacantly nods her head.
Miranda slowly fades to black, as Keyes' memories of her are taken from him. Keyes strains in effort.
Cut to a swinging ceiling fan, then to a young Catherine Halsey in a nightgown.
A human Flood combat form darts around with inhuman speed.
Cut to the Proto-Gravemind.
Keyes is standing in uniform, then shaking hands with Halsey.
Flashes of memory. Keyes is standing in a starship's bridge, taking a walk with Halsey, holding a slip of paper, two Marines in battle dress. Cut to black.
Keyes has now lost all trace of fear, showing only determination.
Keyes' voice grows more and more distorted, matching the Gravemind's.
Cut to black.
