Spartans Never Die by SoupyAssassin Spartans Never Die by SoupyAssassin
"Die? Didn't you know? Spartans never die."

So with Halo: Reach right around the corner, I wanted to do a piece that shows the side of Spartans that most people don't get to see. They are trained killers, yes, but they are human beings aswell. They feel pain. They feel regret. They are just as mortal as any person. But what separates a Spartan from the average person is the lack of respite the Spartans have. All they know is war. All they have is war. And when a brother or sister in arms falls, I believe they feel it more than they let on too. Because they have nothing left but the ghosts of their comrades to keep them company.

good point another thing that I think they feel is that they're pretty much invincible so it must hit pretty hard when one of them dies, I mean that ida must be shaken a lot. :iconclapplz::iconepicclapplz::icondwcar1plz::icondwcar2plz::icondwcar3plz:

I'm not sure they think they're invincible.  I mean, they grew up with the fear of death pretty much constantly on them.  More than half of the SII's died in the augementation process.  And even more died on the events leading up the Fall of Reach.

They're not unaccustomed to seeing their buddies die, but at the same time, they're forced to hold themselves above grieving and mourning for the sake of the mission and their fellow soldiers.

While, they're certainly less "mortal" than their average marine, I'm pretty sure they don't think themselves invincible.

eh I guess but you've got to admit being like that human tank that everyone has seen master chief be there must be a certain idea that nearly nothing can touch you. Or at least in the very early stages of the war.

In the early stages, probably.  I mean, they probably thought that they'd seen the hardest shit.  Becoming a spartan probably seemed impossible.  They'd definitely FEEL strong.  Maybe some level of confidence that they're tough and can probably handle most situations.  And they've got a team of guys at their back that have been through just as much of a struggle.

Invincible, I don't think so.  Strong, I sure hope so.
