Vedrana "Mako" Makovich, callsign Windfall-One, was a SPARTAN-IV supersoldier of Fireteam Windfall in the United Nations Space Command.

Biography[edit]

Spartan career[edit]

At some point between 2557 and 2558, Vedrana Makovich participated in F-41 Broadsword sorties on Requiem. By December 2559, Makovich has run multiple operations with Fireteam Windfall for years, including Prowler corps maneuvers on a Kig-Yar purse-moon as well as strikes on Jiralhanae raiding parties alongside Swords of Sanghelios.[3]

Installation 07[edit]

On December 12, 2559, Spartan Vedrana Makovich was onboard a spacecraft escorting UNSC Infinity when it was ambushed by Banished forces upon arrival at Installation 07. As the Infinity fell to the Banished assault, Makovich and her teammate Henri Malik engaged Banshees that were attacking the lifeboats launching from the Infinity.[4] By December 13, Makovich has made landfall the surface of the ring, and was fighting Forerunner Sentinels when a giant explosion on the ring caused a fracture on its surface. Maokvich narrowly escaped the ring's fragmentation.[5] On December 15, Makovich came across the wreckage of UNSC Mortal Reverie, and established the crash site as a UNSC base of operations, gathering other UNSC forces at the site.[6] She contacted Spartan Hudson Griffin,[6] and was joined by other Spartans.

On January 23, 2560, Spartan Hudson Griffin, the de facto leader at the crash site, led Spartans Panago, Malik, and Sarkar in an assassination mission on the Banished War Chief Escharum.[7] Makovich voiced her disbelief at the team being chosen by drawing straws,[8] but the mission proceeded at Griffin's command.[7] However, the assassination on Escharum failed. Griffin sent an encrypted message to the Reverie on January 31 before he was captured and handed over to Chak 'Lok for torture. In his message, Griffin warned the Reverie of an impending Banished assault.[9] Under the combined leadership of Bertold Vettel and counsel of Makovich, the UNSC forces at the Reverie braced for the Banished's attack.[3] Despite the preparations, the Banished assault under Chieftain Tremonius forced the UNSC forces to retreat from the Reverie on February 2.[10] The UNSC forces scattered into the valley, but as per Rubicon Protocol, Makovich and Vettel continued to run guerilla ops against the Banished to keep the ring out of their control.[11]

On April 24, after being told of increased Banished activity near the Reverie by Spartan Bonita Stone,[12] Makovich and Spartan Theodore Sorel observed a Banished excavation site south of the Reverie.[13] The two correctly deduced that Escharum was searching for the Monitor of the installation, 117649 Despondent Pyre, and spent the next few weeks stalling the Banished's excavation efforts.[13]

When the Banished's excavation completed on May 15, Makovich and Sorel infiltrated the Conservatory.[14] Inside, the two was ambushed by the Sangheili Jega 'Rdomnai, with Sorel being wounded by 'Rdomnai's surprise attack. Makovich urged Sorel to run ahead to locate the monitor, while she would fend off 'Rdomnai.[1] Makovich died in the following duel against the Sangheili,[2] while Sorel made a last stand deeper inside the facility, being killed by the Jiralhanae brothers Tovarus and Hyperius.[15] Makovich's body remained inside the Conservatory, and was found on May 28 by Master Chief Petty Officer John-117, who collected her drop wall module.[2]

Equipment[edit]

During the Battle for Installation 07, Spartan Makovich wore the MJOLNIR [GEN3] armor, employing the ZVEZDA-class helmet, UA/Agathius shoulder pads, and UA/Type SA knee pads. She carried a drop wall module, which was inherited by John-117.[2]

Production notes[edit]

  • Vedrana Makovich was portrayed by voice actress Zehra Fazal,[16] who also lent her voice to the Spartan Voiceprint 16T3 in the multiplayer component of Halo Infinite.[17] Fazal also voiced the ONI agent in Halo Infinite: Memory Agent.[18]
  • Makovich's Mark VII armor coating, Dogfight Makovich, is available in Halo Infinite multiplayer. The armor coating can be unlocked by accessing the Mjolnir Armory locker southeast of the Conservatory. Its name alludes to Makovich's role as a pilot. A Wasp coating of the same name can be unlocked by accessing the Mjolnir Armory locker south of FOB Lima, at the edge of the ring's spine.
