The Good, the Bad, and the Didact
A young woman is stranded alone on Requiem after a devastating Storm Covenant attack on the UNSC Infinity. The Master Chief has vanished ever since he was manipulated into releasing a Forerunner from a Cryptum deep within Requiem's core: a Warrior-servant class Promethean known as the Didact.
The Didact was thought to be the last living Forerunner there was. Having a strong belief in the Mantle of Responsibility, the Didact desires to save all life in the galaxy, but at a cost of humanity. The woman, was looking to get away from her family because of her lack of freedom.
But her new freedom is bittersweet when Prometheans capture her and she is brought onto the Cryptum before the Didact himself. Deciding to spare her, the Didact keeps her prisoner but over time, she begins to learn of his past and believes he can redeem himself.
She refuses to escape his grasp and decides to help him instead; hoping to bring back the good in him and along the while she falls in love with him. But having been previously married to the Librarian and holding a hatred towards humans, the Didact feels nothing for her at first. Can this Forerunner be brought back to the good side, and could he love a human?
