Sarah-A293 is a Spartan-III who was part of the Navy Special Warfare Command. She was also part of the Office of Naval Intelligence.
Sarah was a smarter than your average Spartan-III. She has a rather high IQ.She is also talkative and informative Spartan. She remained in the dark, however, when it came to classified information or her personal life.
Not much was known about Sarah. She was raised on a farm on August 4th, 2523. Her parents were killed by a rebel uprising. She was later taken to an orphanage and was then later conscripted into the Spartan-III program.
During her career, Sarah met many Spartans. Among them, was Rook-A291, her future teamate. Sarah got along well with Rook and later developed a friendship. Sarah was the top of the shooting range, scoring a 99.4% on her tests. Having read her file, she was sent to ONI and served with them. She was then later sent to work with Fireteam X-Ray.
During Operation: DARKHORSE, Sarah was heading to an evac pelican with Rook. Before she could make it, a Jiralhanae Cheiftian hit her with his Gravity Hammer. Having multiple broken bones including cracked ribs, she managed to finish the brute off and board the pelican. Trying to save his teammate, he gave her some morphine. Refusing the morphine, Sarah told Rook everything she thought about him. She also told him to finish the mission by delivering the A.I to ONI. She was confirmed KIA on August 9th, 2552.
Fall of ReachEdit
Shortly after the battle began, Sarah was stationed at ONIs Sword Base, being debriefed about covenant ships. When the Covenant Corvette appeared over the horizon, Sarah and a security team, escorted high ranking officials to a secret ONI facility in Azöd. She was then sent with Fireteam X-Ray to an operation known as, DARKHORSE.
