Hi everyone, Spartan here with Site Poll 94.
Last week we talked about your favourite Captain/Shipmaster. Many honourable men were mentioned, but the clear favourite was Captain Jacob Keyes, and for good reason. Click here to view the last poll, 93.
Which Spartan-IV do you like most?
Now the truth is, most of us admire the Spartan-IIs and IIIs over the IVs. This is because they have more history, and in most cases a rougher background. Most of them have more experience, because they've been fighting for longer, and that leads most of us to respect them more. Thing is, that last statement about more experience isn't necessarily true. Many Spartan-IVs were previously ODSTs or ONI agents, and also have plenty of experience. The Spartan-IVs aren't respected/appreciated enough, at least this used to be the case a few years back. I was also pretty prejudice against them, mostly because of their lack of discipline compared to the IIs and some IIIs. Thing is, the IIs aren't all that disciplined killing-machines themselves to be honest, John-117 depicts them that way though. They can be talkative (some more than others) and speak casually with each other. They just do this a lot less than the IVs do, due to their background.
I learned to appreciate all of the IVs (apart from a few, Scruggs for example), and they deserve as much respect as the IIs and IIIs. Keep in mind at least one Spartan-II also went turncoat, don't think any IIIs did though. The Spartan-IVs are generally more expressive and slightly less disciplined compared to the IIs and IIIs, for the reasons mentioned above, but they're great soldiers nevertheless. Considering the IIs and IIIs get most attention, which is understandable, I'd like to focus things on the IVs this time. Which Spartan-IV do you like most, and why?
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts,
