Gears of War - Original Creatures - Onyx ProtectorName: Onyx ProtectorGears of War - Original Creatures - Onyx Protector by Soundwave04
Description: Almost identical to the standard COG protector, but coated the typical black paint of the Onyx Guard. Rather that the Kabuto like helmet and balaclava worn by standard Protectors, Onyx variants have more typical Stalhelm like helmets with a long, vertical mask that covers their faces. The mask has two, piercing blue optics with a long blue stripe going down the right side.
Onyx Protectors often decorate portions of their armour with markings, usually their unit number or the amount of enemies they have killed.
Some Onyx Protectors even decorate their visors, usually by painting some sort of grinning skull on the front.
Weapons: Grenade Launcher, Gnasher Shotgun
Bio: For when you absolutely, positively need to guard the most important member of the COG or protect a key COG installation AND utterly obliterate your enemy until nothing of them remains, you go to the Onyx Protectors.
Just like normal Protectors, these Onyx Varian

After escaping from the squad of human commandos, Krall moved through the desolate, ruined, empty hallways of the information centre. His mind raced as he didn’t dare look back. Those humans were like nothing he’d encountered before. Who were they? Some kind of Commando squad?
Krall didn’t want to dwell on it too much, he was just glad to have gotten out of there, and had at least bought down one of them.
Sensing pains in his body, Krall decided to duck down and hide somewhere, just so he could catch a breath a recover. He spotted what appeared to be a restroom. Not exactly the most ideal place, but he didn’t have time to be picky. Krall pushed through the door and entered the room.
Sure enough, the walls were cracked, the floor was broken, what was once mirrors were now pieces of wood where the glass had been destroyed and the toilets themselves had been removed, leaving just traces of metal and holes in the floor.
Gears of War - Original Creatures - Cyron MarinesName: Cyron MarineGears of War - Original Creatures - Cyron Marines by Soundwave04
Description: Roughly the same size as a Cyron Enforcer, clad in black armour with dark grey patches on the elbows and knees. Marines have oxygen tanks on their backs, with various wires and tubes snaking around the back of the arms and shoulders, which connect to the helmet.
Marine Helmet resemble your typical diver’s helmet, but instead of a “window”, there appears to be a metal frame with small holes going across from top to bottom.
Marines also appear to have some sort of jet propulsion system of their backs, underneath the oxygen tanks, which allow them to leap out of the water at great speed.
Weapons: MKII “Typhoon” Multi-purpose assault Rifle, Knives
Bio: “Glory to the deep!” There are no depths to deep for these specially trained Cyron Troopers. The Marines are specialists that are deployed to deal with any kind of mission that involves water, from simple rivers to the deepest depths of the

“Operation Crater was a good idea in theory. I mean, make Opulent C into a mini fortress, fend off all Savage Locust and Lambent, escort the weapons to the Lambent E-Hole and blow it up. Done! We go home heroes!
Simple right? It should have been, but we didn’t count on the Glowies having… evolved. Thought Adam Fenix’s ICM weapon only weakened the Lambent, we thought they’d still be a push over.
They were weak, but they grew strong again, and with more abominations to boot as well! We didn’t anticipate that.
You’d think this war would have prepared us for all kinds of eventualities, even the most unlikely.”
Anonymous Onyx Guard regarding Operation Crater
Cobra could only watch as the Lambent Drone charged straight for him, passing by the debris of the streets and scraping the Butcher Cleaver along the ground. The Beast snarled as it made a beeline straight for him, but instead, went face first int
