Usze 'Taham a character from and a protagonists of The Unsung War. He is a Sangheili Fleet Security Officer of the Fleet of Retribution‘s Special Warfare Group. During the Great Schism, he assisted the Covenant Separatists in eliminating the Covenant Loyalists.
Although Usze 'Taham was born into a respected merchant family in the state of Taham, he was fathered by Toha 'Sumai, one of the prominent swordfighters of this age. Toha mated with Usze's mother, a privilege granted by being a Swordsman, and Usze was raised by his mother and her husband.
Service in the Covenant EmpireEdit
Shortly after receiving his first post within the Covenant Navy, he was offered a place on the San 'Shyuum Honor Guard, but he declined citing "lack of practical experience". In truth, he had no desire to be part of a largely ceremonial unit, and at the end of his third combat tour, Usze 'Taham again refused the post, even though his superiors warned him such behavior could be misinterpreted as apostasy.
Since that time, Usze has evaded countless punitive actions, as well as at least two assassination attempts, and served with distinction for two additional tours before the Great Schism.
