Not exactly green; no ODST is. But if I didn't think he could do the job, I wouldn't have him on my six. He doesn't say much, but I don't care. I just need him to listen.
— Edward Buck on the Rookie

Lance Corporal Jonathan Doherty, often simply known as the Rookie, is the protagonist of the video game Halo 3: ODST. He is a human junior enlistedman who served with the UNSC Marine Corps during the Human-Covenant War and the Draco III Rebellion.

Little is known about this Marine other than his initials (J.D.) and that he was born in Crisium City, Naniwa, Luna on February 9, 2525. He enlisted in the Marine Corps on July 7, 2547, and eventually advanced to the rank of Lance Corporal. Some time after, he volunteered and was accepted into the Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODST), despite his initial lack of combat experience. Later, he was chosen by GySgt Edward Buck for a team to aid the Office of Naval Intelligence in New Mombasa, Kenya during the Battle of Earth.

Rookie would continue to serve in the military after the Human-Covenant War and into the Draco III Rebellion. While the ODSTs were storming Draco III's capitol building, they were caught in an ambush in the legislature chambers. Buck ordered the Rookie to flank the rebels while the rest of the team provided cover. Rookie would die at the hands of Captain Ingridson, though the UNSC would subsequently win the battle by the end.

Battle vs. Luger (by 123chaseyoung)[]

It was a windy afternoon in the rocky planet known as Morag. The armored ODST known as the Rookie sat on a rock as he stared at the dark sky, its depressing atmosphere comforting him as he relaxed. Such a planet had proven itself to be dangerous in most times of the year. Lightning would crackle, seas would crash, mountains would crumble. But this is one of a few moments where the planet was at peace; a time where it was most beautiful.

Unknown to him, a cougar stalked around the area where he sat. She stayed behind large rocks and walls, making sure not to make a sound. Her prey was right in the open, sitting like a buffoon, not knowing his imminent death. This was all too easy for Luger, the female marshal and assassin.

The Rookie sensed presence on his HUD, but it was too late to react as someone grabbed unto his back. He tried to shake her off but Luger's grip was like a vice. She struck the Rookie's chest with her knife, making a small pierce, but not enough to actually make damage. Luger then let go and ran for cover as the Rookie took his M76 submachine gun and aimed.

Bullets after bullets silently pound the rock Luger took cover behind. The Rookie slowly got closer and closer as he fired. When the Rookie ran out of bullets and had to reload, Luger took the opportunity to take out her M66 submachine gun. Rookie rolled out of the way as bullets flew above him. He grabbed a large and almost spherical rock that he then threw at Luger.

Luger barely dodged that throw. As the Rookie went back to trying to reload, Luger cooked off a grenade and threw it at him. The Rookie saw the light and heard the beeping of the bomb, managing to dive out of there in time as it exploded. Luger then drew her M4 pistol and went towards the Rookie. The latter, in turn, grabbed his own M6C pistol and charged. Both fired their weapons at each other as they moved forward. When both came face-to-face, a duel of pistols ensued.

Luger would fire and the Rookie would dodge. The latter would kick before aiming his gun. Luger would grab the barrel before Rookie could fire. She would then follow-up by a roundhouse to the temple. Both would wrestle and keep shooting. Both were unrelenting and would never tire.

Eventually, the Rookie smashed his pistol at Luger's face, knocking her helmet off. The Rookie finally got a glimpse of the red-haired goddess; an image he'd been desperately sought after. As she was stunned, the Rookie dropped a fragmentation grenade at Luger's feet before rolling and running away in retreat. Luger would try to run as fast as she could from the grenade, hoping there would still be time.

An explosion sent Luger flying away. Though her armor took some of the force, she was too lightly armored to be considered a tank. She then landed back on the ground, her face blackened and her uniform shredded. She was slightly in pain and she could feel burning warmth invading her body. This was game score for the Rookie.

Epilogue[]

The female assassin rested herself on the ground and wiped the soot off her face. Suddenly, she felt a knee pressed against her stomach. Looking up, she saw the Rookie mounted on top of her, a knife aimed at her neck. There was no face for Luger to see and beg to. Her skin felt coldness and dread. All she could do was to stare at the inevitable, her lips plump and breathing, her eyes staring beautifully at the abyss.

The Rookie took off his helmet and stared back at Luger, finally feeling the tug that was drawing him near. Luger would give a cute smile, and whisper at the Rookie to do what he had to do. Their lips would meet and tongue would greet each other. The Rookie's hands would be playful while Luger's arms wrapped tightly around his ribs.

It wasn't long before they would separate and went back to staring at each other.

"I love you," Luger whispered with her signature cute smile.

The Rookie would say nothing but continue admiring her beauty. They would kiss one more time, savoring such moments that were too few and far in between. Finally, the Rookie helped Luger back up to her feet. They would hold each other's hands and stare at each other one more time with passion, before looking out into the sky, wondering what fate would have in store.

The two would let go and begun their trek back to their ships and back into their respective dimensions. Before going, however, Luger had one final farewell. "When we meet again," she said. "Make it the last time. Please marry me already."

Out of character did the Rookie respond, a smiling beam appearing on his lips. Luger would appreciate that as they finally waved goodbye. Such was inter-dimensional love. Mysterious, full of effort, and a lot of fun.

Expert's Opinion[]

Experts believe that while Luger has a stealth advantage, the Rookie had better weapons, armor, and training that won him this battle.

Expert's Opinion[]

While the Marine had the advantage of raw firepower, The Rookie's armor offered more protection and his gear offered a stealthier approach, allowing him to walk away the victor.
