Leygall began rallying SOS forces, he amassed a large group of warriors still fit for combat, 30 Sangheili, 20 Ungoy, and 12 Kig-Yar. many of the sangheili were minors, along with some of the Ungoy, the Kig-Yar however were more experienced. The Sangheili among the group, including Leygall had equipped Kig-Yar defense gauntlets, some from crates, others scavenged from the dead Kig-Yar normally Sangheili felt like doing so was a cowardly and shameful act however, in this instance they swallowed their pride and regrouped. Leygall being one of the highest ranked among the group, and the one who lead the rally stepped up and lead this small force. this is exactly what I wanted to avoid during our war with the humans... well it is time to bite the bullet Nos. he thought to himself.
He lead the group throughout the Darkstar III. Ungoy were in the front, equipped with plasma pistols, rifles, two fuel rod cannons, and a few needlers. behind them were the Kig-Yar with Carbines and Needle rifles, one of them instead had an energy cutlass. Finally behind them were the Sangheili equipped with plasma rifles, carbines, needlers, and storm rifles. In the far back was Leygall and two other swordsman.
The group stormed through the halls, slaying any LR personnel on sight. Marines dropped like flies as their armor was melted through after only a single shot, a group of them ran from Leygall's force and lured them into a much larger group of marines and spartans. the two sides fought tirelessly, marines continued to die with ease, the Ungoy melted large numbers of the group with their fuel rod cannons, the spartans soon after dispatched the attacking Ungoy with ease. The Kig-Yar and Sangheili's defense gauntlets allowed them to push forward, an effective shield wall forcing it's way down the halls, the marines retreated while the remaining three spartans stood their ground, one threw a grenade at the group which a Kig-Yar was able to shoot out of the air as it left their hand, blowing the spartan's hand off and disabling his shields, he quickly exploded as he became a pin cushion of blamite crystals. The other two spartans were able to kill a few of the Kig-Yar before being brought to their own deaths. Leygall continued to lead his force through the Darkstar deck by deck.
They entered a large hangar which was full of more LR forces, many marines and 5 spartans held their ground in this room, Leygall's forces pushed their way through, three spartans charged forward, energy swords in their hands, when they got close the Kig-Yar and Sangheili all crouched simultaneously, Leygall and the two other swordsman stepped on the backs of the sangheili in front of them and leaped off of them, quickly decapitating the three spartans before they could even swing once, this lowered the moral in the marines and some began to retreat while others continued to fight vigorously. The two other spartans managed to kill 4 of the Kig-Yar before falling themselves, the rest of the marines who tried to retreat were nearly melted into puddles of flesh under the concentrated fire of the group. Afterwards they pushed through the tunnel into the next deck where they found a pair of Mgalekgolo melting a group spartans. "Bond brothers! join us to kill this treacherous slime!" Leygall said, the two let out an affirmative rumble. they were put into the back of the group, they were larger than anything else in the group and the Kig-Yar and Sangheili served as an effective wall for them while they were able to shoot over the group and decimate any humans in front of them. The group marched through the halls wreaking havoc wherever they went. Massacring large numbers of humans while losing small numbers of their own, it was as though it were the human covenant war all over again, when the covenant were at full strength.
"are you ready to go human?" Zoka asked Glasgow
