For the Queen!
— Theron Guard
The Theron Guard represents the elite of the Locust, head-and-shoulders above the lowly Drones in terms of equipment, intelligence, and training. They are elite Locust, assigned to commando-style raids against high-profile targets and high-level defensive missions that require the sort of precision the Therons possess. If the Drones and Boomers represent the Locust military's hammer and anvil, then the Theron Guard is most decidedly its scalpel.

Battle vs. United States Army Rangers (by SPARTAN 119)[]

U.S. Army Rangers: Blue Blue Blue Blue Blue

Theron Guard: Red Red Red Red Red

A squad of five Rangers walk towards the back of building, pausing at the edge of a forest, about 200 meters from the structure. Between the Rangers and the structure is a grassy clearing. The Rangers have been sent to investigate reports of unknown hostiles occupying the building.

A Locust Theron Guard armed with a Longshot Sniper rifle takes aim at a Ranger frome the building and squeezes the trigger. The large caliber round of the Longshot kills the Ranger with a headshot Blue.

"Hostile contact!", The Ranger commander yells.

The Theron reloads his rifle, only to be spotted by the Ranger sniper, who was armed with an M110 SASS. The sniper fires a single round, taking out the Theron with a headshot as he reloads Red

A Theron fire his Torque Bow at the Ranger Sniper. The explosive bolt detonates next to the Ranger sniper, killing him Blue but not injuring any of the other members of the squad. A Theron follows off with a burst of fire from his Hammerburst II, but misses.

The Ranger commander, meanwhile, fires the FN40 Grenade Launcher under the barrel. The grenade impacts the top of the building, killing the Locust with the Torque Bow and another Locust Red Red.

The Ranger commander orders his men to assault the Locust building. The Rangers rush from cover to cover. One of them is cut down by a burst from a Hammerburst II Blue.

The remaining two Rangers stack up by the door of the structure, the commander armed with a SCAR-H and the other armed with a Benelli M1014. The shotgun Ranger kicks down the door and fires his Benelli twice, filling a Theron guarding the door with shot Red.

Unfortunately, the Ranger shotgunner is cut down by a blast from a Gnasher Shotgun wielded by the Locust commander. Blue. The Ranger commander turns to face the Theron commander with his SCAR-H, but the Locust knocks the weapon out the Ranger commander's hand.

With a lightning-fast strike, the Ranger commander knocks the Gnasher shotgun out of the Theron commander's hand with his Tomahawk. The Theron Guard commander goes for his Gorgon Burst Pistol, but the Ranger commander strikes the Theron's holster with his tomahawk, cutting through the holster and denting the barrel of the gun to the point that it was rendered useless.

With a roar of furious rage, the Theron Guard draws his Butcher Cleaver and made a wide horizontal swing at the Ranger Commander. The Ranger's tomahawk only barely blocked the blow, and, in the process, broke the handle of the tomahawk.

The Theron commander laughed, but the Ranger commander drew his Beretta Model 92 pistol as he said, "Joke's on you, asshole!". The Ranger fired five shots into the Theron commander, three to the chest and two to the head. The Theron fell to the floor, dead Red.

The Ranger commander got out a portable camera and photographed the bodies of the fallen Therons for intelligence, before getting out his radio and reporting back to command: "This is Hunter 2-1 Actual, Me and the rest of the chalk have eliminated the unknown hostiles, though they took out the rest of my unit. You're not going to believe this, but they don't appear to be... human... I have already taken photos for intel."


Expert's Opinion []

This was a considerably close battle. The US Army Rangers were quite well trained, but they were put on even grounds by the Theron Gaurds' tough skin. What tipped this battle in the US Army Rangers' favor was their superior arsenal.
