Campaign level: Gravemind
Fade in on present day High Charity. A Covenant craft flies over the city. The Scribe is onboard.
Cut to the city below, where a pair of Unggoy stare up at the Scribe's craft.
Fade back to the Scribe.
Fade to black.
Fade in on a Covenant fleet approaching the Unggoy world Balaho.
Cut to the surface of Balaho, where a single Unggoy stands in the middle of the rain, watching a Covenant CAS-class assault carrier in the distance. The carrier's gravity lift is activated.
Zoom in on the gravity lift, where dozens of Unggoy prisoners, trotting in two single file lines on opposite sides of the platform, enter the lift, while armed Sangheili stand guard. Cut to black.
Fade in to a close-up of an Unggoy glaring at the purplish light of the gravity lift.
Cut to a mass of Unggoy being herded down the carrier's ramp and into High Charity. Sangheili and Kig-Yar stand guard.
A single Unggoy turns around and stares hatefully at a Kig-Yar, who stares back with just as much animosity.
Fade to black. Fade in on a pair of Kig-Yar sabotaging some equipment.
Fade to black. Fade in on an Unggoy holding the body of a fellow Unggoy in its arms.
An Unggoy joins another Unggoy on a rooftop. It fires a Fuel Rod Gun at some Kig-Yar below.
Cut to a distant shot of the city as explosions erupt throughout. Scene cuts to a street-level view, where a lone Sangheili is pinned down under a heavy torrent of plasma pistol fire from Unggoy insurgents. The Sangheili fires his plasma rifle back at the rebels, but to no avail.
Pan upwards to a Phantom flying overhead. The dropship is hit by a fuel rod blast and explodes.
Cut again to a distant shot of the city in chaos as the fighting intensifies.
Fade to a newly appointed Arbiter being anointed by four Prophets. Scene circles around him as he puts on his helmet.
Fade to Balaho. An assault carrier fires its glassing beam at the surface. The dust cloud from the resulting explosion engulfs an Unggoy village.
Cut to a distant shot of the planet's burning surface as the glassing continues. The camera pulls back and the scene becomes overlaid by a holographic terminal on High Charity. Below, dozens of Unggoy watch the destruction of their world.
Cut to a close up of an Unggoy. A single tear rolls down its face. Its plasma pistol falls to the ground.
Cut to a door opening, revealing the Arbiter, flanked by four other Sangheili.
Cut to a crowd of Unggoy on High Charity.
An Unggoy (now wearing a traditional breathing mask) stands before the Arbiter, who offers it a plasma pistol. The Unggoy accepts the weapon.
Fade to black.
