Halo: Dystopian Dawn

The Cryo-Pods hissed as they were opened. The occupants had slowly been warmed up the past few days and now they stepped out of the pods facing a man who was waiting patiently.

"Good morning soldiers, and welcome back to the land of the living. I am Lieutenant Commander Arvers and I am here to welcome you aboard the UNSC Valkyrie. You've been asleep for a long time, the year is 2823 and Earth isn't such a pretty place anymore. The United Nations Space Command is crippled and a shadow of what it once was. You are, as far as we know the last remaining SPARTANs alive. We wake you now because we need you. The Covenant are more powerful than they have ever been and we, all of human race in fact, are relying on you. I'm sure you're all quite shocked, hell, I know I would be if I had been frozen for three-hundred years. All will be explained shortly. Follow me up to the bridge to speak with the Captain."

This RP is based on Halo, the game, and while previous knowledge may be helpful, it is not necessary. Depending on interest, I may or may not develop this more, so write below if you're interested.

According to strict canon, the SPARTAN program has been around since ~2180 when bioengineering was developed for war. The program, conceived by Catherine Halsey, a civilian working at ONI.
The program itself was thought of as a solution to the rebellion of certain groups around the galaxy, also known as The Insurrection(ists).

Spartans, themselves are surgically and chemically altered (once they reach physical maturity) humans, kidnapped from their homes at a very young age. Essentially, Spartans are super-soldiers, and proved to be one of the most effective fighting forces, despite the controversy surrounding the program. They are effectively brainwashed as soldiers from the age of six and hence their name.

Spartan candidates were found all over the galaxy and so (I think) some very different biographies are possible.

(^This info is official, and taken from the universe^)
Players will take on their choice of a SPARTAN or an ONI (Office of Naval Intelligence, formally UNSC Military Intelligence Division) agent.
Forming an elite squad, the Spartans and agents will work together, ONI agents assisting from remote locations, as well as intelligence gathering.

As revealed above the plot so far is:
c. 2500: Covenant presumed eradicated. Emergency military government reverted to Unified Earth Government. Spartans put in Cryo-Stasis, ONI - (a rather sore subject of history, actions less than noble) - suspended until further notice.

c. 2500-2800: Relative peace in the galaxy however, internal corruption  unrest and rebellion are still present.

2823 (Present): Dystopian Dawn. A massive surprise attack on Earth by the Covenant (The alien race and adversary of the humans.) ONI reactivated, Spartans awakened.

The humans were lulled into a sense of security. Some have suspicions that for the attack to take place, inside information would have been needed. There is anarchy everywhere and the government if fighting for control. Streets are dangerous, and many outer colonies have been lost to rebels.

Character Sheet:

Name: *Optional*
Codename: First-name appended by -XXX (three random numbers)
Age: *Optional*
Rank: Most will be some sort of petty officer.
Expertise/Speciality: The SPARTANS form a squad, each will have specific skills that contribute differently. eg. Demolitionist, Medic. Feel free to use to your imagination on this one but please be mindful of existing characters - ones submitted before yours. Same for Agents

Miscellaneous Information: *if any*

I'm not giving up on this just yet . Again, I will develop more if there is any interest.

You proposed it late last night when few users are on... and usually the first step to creating a story or RP is to tell us if it is a sory, or to make an OoC (Out of Character) thread so that people can express interest and create their own characters.
Dat COMPH tho. - Me every morning not wanting to leave bed

We have your premise, which is a good start, but not much else at the moment.  What's the goal of the game?  What kind of players are you looking for?  What roles are you looking to fill?  
The giant has awakened
You drink my blood and drown
Wrath and raving I will not stop
You'll never take me down

I'd expect the usual battlefield tactical roles, a little cliche' but necessary.
