- "You believe we should stay. I say, it is time for change. And you, unfortunately, would stop this change. So, I am afraid you can't be a part of it."
- —Koug 'Masteree to Thel 'Vadamee
Koug 'Masteree (also called Leader of the Rebels) was the mastermind and creator of the Elite Rebels.
Koug 'Masteree was born in the year, 2558, five years after the end of the Human-Covenant War. The majority of his family was dead by then, which allowed him to nurse together a deep hatred for humans, for destroying the only family he had. He grew up with others, being adopted by friends of his parents.
He then joined military school, and because of his excellent performance, was accepted into the exclusive and secret group of Ascetics.
He was one of the 1000 Elites selected for augmentation, which was codenamed HONOR. However, due to complications and misunderstandings, he and Elten 'Sithinee were the only survivors.
One thing that worried others, was his disgust of humans, which also caused concern for Thel 'Vadamee, their leader.
After his augmentation, 'Masteree was assigned to crack down on Elites who were desperate to break away from humans.
- "I'll tell you what they did. They made orphans of me, and many others. They cut me off from those I loved! And now, we are to live peacefully with them? I say, we should repay what they did to us, blood for blood!"
- —Koug 'Masteree
After years of fighting his own brethren, 'Masteree finally cracked, and split away from the Loyalists, and formed the Rebels. With thousands of Elites at his beck and call, he ambushed Thel 'Vadamee, imprisoned him, and launched an attack on Humanity.
Little did he know, that deep inside his forces, another rebellion was in planning...
Battle of Mastus SadaferEdit
- Main article: Ascension Chapter 1: Uprising
A week after he first attacked humanity, Koug 'Masteree and his forces attacked the planet, Mastus Sadafer. However, unlike before, the humans were ready, and shot down most of his cruisers before they could attack. 'Masteree's forces still managed to land an invasion party.
A force of ODSTs were sent to the ground to repel and evacuate the civilians. They had sent the civilians into the planet's HQ, where they were to be picked up by dropships. However, the dropship was delayed, and cost the humans at least half of their forces.
'Masteree and his forces escaped to their cruisers, though with heavy casualties.
Not long afterward, 'Sithinee's ship, the Glorious Crusader, appeared and attacked 'Masteree's ships. Not wanting to risk himself, and expecting his ships to easily defeat the Loyalist, he escaped, while his cruisers were easily outmaneuvered. He had also hatched a plan with an Ice Bear, planning for him to arrive with a fleet in three days to decimate the humans' home world.
Afterward, he and nine other ships set out to seek revenge against the Loyalists.
'Masteree, before his betrayal, was known to have been very kind to others, the opposite of Elten, who he thought of as a brother. Because of this, his personality allowed him to feel sympathetic to the Elites against humanity, and joined him.
After his rebellion, 'Masteree transformed into a monster, utterly bent on killing anyone who were allied with the humans. He still pertained a part of his original personality, being kind to those who were with him. However, whenever his life was on the line, he would use others' lives to save himself.
'Masteree is the height of the average Elite, being able to blend into any crowd with ease. What set him apart from others was the Ascetic armor he wore. It was an electric blue, with the helmet sealed tight, and twin blades jutting out at the jawpiece.
His eyes are a bright orange, and he has brownish-gray skin.
After his augmentations, Koug 'Masteree was extraordinarily swift and strong, despite his size. He was also extremely intelligent and talented with the Energy Sword, being able to beat both Thel 'Vadamee and Elten 'Sithinee in duels.
'Masteree was a talented tactician, as he could naturally command fleets of ships, as if he were teaching others about it.
'Masteree also managed to augment his already impressive abilities yet again, turning him into the ultimate warrior, and giving him the following abilities:
- Run at speeds of up to 87 kilometers an hour.
- Lift at least 10 tons.
'Masteree improved the shields on his armor as well, allowing them to stand a point blank rocket and hold. He also discovered that by implanting a weapon (such as a flamethrower or laser) into your arm, you could allow it to function as a weapon, and thus, turned his left arm into a prototype arm flamethrower.
