- "Show me where the Brutes settle.. and get out of my way!"
- ―Dalsorta 'Merthandee
Once a member of the Ēna Kātiņas and a Swordsman-in-training under the Mastery of Makdan 'Talek, 'Merthand turned himself in to Sangheili Spec-Ops Elites, and betrayed the Kātiņas. He served his time in prison, and was enlisted into the Covenant Separatists. After a Brute attack on a UNSC Planet, 'Merthand and the rest of his Lance met up with two Spartans, and took part in an Assault of a Loyalist ship. During the assault, 'Merthand saved the life of one of the Spartans, and has been close to them ever since.
