PostSubject: Nathan Hale   Fri May 14, 2010 7:13 pm


Nathan Hale

The game starts in the year 1951, with the protagonist, Sgt. Nathan Hale, on his way with a United States task force to retrieve a secret weapon that the British claim can be used against the Chimera. However, the force is quickly wiped out by a Chimeran spire attack, which infects all of the soldiers with the Chimeran virus, soon after landing in York. Hale, the only survivor, appears to be infected with the virus despite not having gone into a coma. He possesses increased strength, limited regeneration, and his irises have become gold/yellow, somewhat like the Chimera.

Hale continues on his mission, meeting and rescuing Captain Rachel Parker while escaping from a Chimeran conversion center in Grimsby. Parker then assists Hale over the radio for the rest of his mission.[3] Hale and the British forces eventually manage to recover the secret weapon in Manchester and deliver it to one of the resistance's headquarters in Cheshire, only to find it under attack by Chimeran forces. It is revealed that the secret weapon is actually an Angel, a Chimeran creature that British Intelligence was able to capture. The Angels are the most powerful form of Chimeran creature, thought to control the rest of the Chimera forces through some form of telepathy. The Angel attempts to enter into Hale's mind, but he manages to resist and shoots the creature in the head with his assault rifle, killing it.

Hale continues with the war effort, assisted by Lieutenant Stephen Cartwright, a British Royal Marines Commando. The two of them eventually discover that the Chimera have established a series of metallic towers throughout Britain, all inter-connected by a series of underground power conduits. Evidence indicates that the towers were excavated, not constructed, adding more mystery as to the origin of the Chimera. After helping the resistance evacuate their last major stronghold in Bristol as the Chimera wipe it out, Hale enters the underground Chimeran tunnels and discovers that the Chimera's main tower in Britain is located in London. Hale decides that destroying the central tower will somehow result in the total defeat of the Chimera in Britain.

The British and American forces launch one final attack against the main Chimeran tower in London. Hale manages to reach the top of the tower and destroy its central nuclear fission reactor, resulting in a massive explosion that obliterates the tower. This sets off a chain reaction along the Chimera conduit network, destroying all the towers in Britain and killing all of the Angels inside. With the Angels dead, the remaining Chimeran forces quickly die off within minutes. Britain is saved from the Chimeran invasion.

As for Hale, he is presumed to have been killed in the explosion of the main tower, and the Americans list him as killed in action. Parker is not convinced, though, and believes that Hale may have managed to survive somehow. The game's final cutscene shows Hale alive, walking through the snow, armed with only a single grenade. Suddenly, he is intercepted by a squad of soldiers wearing unusual insignia, appearing to be some form of special forces. Hale briefly contemplates killing them as well as himself with the grenade, but ultimately decides against it. He drops the grenade and allows himself to be taken by the soldiers, flying away in a transport helicopter.

After destroying the Central Chimera Tower in London in 1951, Nathan Hale is extracted by SRPA (Special Research Projects Administration) soldiers in a VTOL aircraft, and is sedated. When they arrive at the Special Research Projects Administration (SRPA) "Igloo" Base in Iceland, they find it under attack by Chimera forces. Their VTOL is shot down by a Chimera Goliath and only Hale and Major Richard Blake of the SRPA survive. As the two make their way to safety, they encounter and unknowingly unleash Daedalus, an incredibly powerful Chimeran creature that is apparently controlling the Chimera, but it escapes before they can stop it. Hale and Blake find the Russian scientist Fyodor Malikov who has been working with the SRPA investigating the Chimeran virus, and are able to safely extract him to America after Hale uses a missile launcher to destroy a Goliath, just before the Chimera overrun the base. Hale is introduced to the Sentinels, others like Hale who have been exposed to the Chimeran virus, giving them superhuman strength and regenerative abilities, but take regular injections of an inhibitor to prevent them from fully succumbing to its effects. Over the next two years, Hale is promoted to Lieutenant and becomes a part of the Sentinel force in charge of Echo Squad in the place of the KIA Lt. Hank Leavitt (Revealed in Intel during the Cooperative campaign) - comprising Sergeant Ben Warner, Specialist Aaron Hawthorne and Corporal Joseph Capelli - and put on the same regimen of inhibitors to prevent the virus from changing him further.

On May 15, 1953 the Chimera launch a full-scale invasion of the United States, attacking the country from both the east and west. Hale, Malikov, and most of the other SRPA soldiers escape from the destruction of their base at SRPA 3 in San Francisco after Hale kills a Chimeran sea monster, referred to as a Kraken as the Chimera lay waste to the city. Pursuing a damaged Chimera battleship to Orick, California, they manage to board the battleship and destroy it from the inside via explosive charges. Unfortunately, following their escape, they are shot down and crash near Twin Falls, Idaho which lies on the Liberty Defense Perimeter. Hale and other Sentinels successfully reactivate two defensive towers to repel the Chimera fleet, which was about to breach the perimeter, after Hale knocks a giant leaper-like Chimera known as "The Mother Spinner" off one of the towers, sending it falling to its doom. Hale refuses to return to base for his Inhibitor Treatment, disregarding the fact that he is long overdue, and instead takes a black ops squad to 'Station Genesis' in Bryce Canyon, Utah in order to extract Malikov from the base before a Chimera attack force wipes out SRPA troops there. Hale is able to successfully retrieve Malikov from the base but not before encountering Daedalus again. Malikov explains to Hale that Daedalus used to be a human known as Private Jordan Adam Sheppard who, along with Hale, was part of "Project Abraham", a military program designed to try to create Chimera-human hybrids such as the Cloven. Sheppard was part of Malikov's tests, one of the two (the other being Hale himself) who were injected with pure Chimeran DNA to actually survive. Unlike Hale, who had the DNA go into submission until his re-infection in York re-activated it, Sheppard's injection mutated his body into the barely human form of Daedalus, and gave him knowledge of the Chimera's origins and goals, and the ability to control their armies.

After recovering Malikov, Hale and Echo Squad go to Chicago, against the orders of command, in order to deactivate one of several activated Chimera towers that are slowly powering up, since these towers are key to the Chimera's plans for Earth. After a vicious battle through the city, in which Hale kills a 300 ft tall Chimeran monster, known as the "Leviathan", Malikov is able to deactivate it, only to find the tower reactivated immediately afterwards remotely by Daedalus from Iceland, and the only way to shut them down is to travel there. The Sentinels and the other SRPA soldiers launch an assault against the Iceland Tower (Holar Tower map in multiplayer), but find it to be a trap, with many of the forces being lost. However, Hale and Echo Squad are able to enter the tower, only to find Daedalus waiting for them. During their time in the tower Warner and Hawthorne are killed by Daedalus and Hale is stabbed in the stomach by Daedalus and passes out from his injuries. Corporal Capelli finds his body and saves his life: Hale wakes up from a medically-induced coma in a field camp in Cocodrie, Louisiana and finds that it is six weeks later; the Chimera have overrun the American defenses, killing over 80 million people, and forcing the 3 million remaining survivors to America's last stronghold in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Even worse, Hale also discovers that because he went so long without the inhibitor, his body had succumbed to the virus, and he has only 3 hours, at most, before it fully consumes him; Capelli, the only remaining Sentinel other than Hale asks Hale if he's going to make his last few hours count. (It is revealed that Dr. Malikov killed himself afterwards with a morphine overdose, which is read in his journal, since he had no wish to be judged for his work and failure to stop the Chimera's impending victory). Hale decides to use this time to take part in an attack on the majority of the Chimera fleet currently hovering above the Gulf of Mexico around the Chicxulub Crater on the Yucatan Peninsula, waiting for some unknown purpose. Hale and Capelli are able to recover a nuclear warhead and deliver it onto Daedalus' flagship, but Major Richard Blake and his squad, who are taking the warhead to the ship's central reactor are killed, and it is taken by Chimeran forces and brought to Daedalus. Hale makes his own way to Daedalus and kills him; though upon touching its corpse, Hale is suddenly overwhelmed by strong psychokinetic abilities. After re-activating the bomb, Hale narrowly escapes with Capelli: the resulting explosion destroys the Chimeran fleet and a pulse similar to an electromagnetic pulse forces Hale's ship to crash land.

After Capelli regained consciousness, he notices that Hale is missing. Heading outside he sees that the sky has turned red with a number of destroyed planet-like spheres clearly visible in space with Hale looking in awe at them. Hale recalls Daedalus' words: "Can you hear them? They are calling to us...It's beautiful!" finishing with, "This is just the beginning." Capelli sees that Hale has nearly become fully engulfed by the virus and solemnly, in contrast to his disrespectful attitude previously towards Hale, replies "Forgive me, sir. It was an honor," then shoots Hale at point blank range in the head, seemingly killing him.

The main character in both Resistance games has been Nathan Hale, a soldier originally from Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Before the events of the games, Hale had been involved in an accident during a live fire exercise that led to serious injury to himself. The accident was blamed on faulty munitions. After being rehabilitated both physically and mentally, Hale returned to active duty. His commanding officers often granted him high-risk missions because of his excellence as a soldier, but concerns were constantly raised about his psychological well-being. Hale volunteered along with Jordan Shepard (who later became Daedalus) in a military project, known as Project Abraham. Outwardly the project was supposed to be experiments to find a cure for the European Influenza epidemic, but it was really testing a vaccine against the Chimeran virus. Hale was the only test subject to survive and therefore developed a limited immunity to the virus. During the events of the first Resistance game, Hale is infected with the Chimeran virus, but is not completely transformed by it. He gains certain aspects of the Chimera, such as yellow eyes and increased strength, but still remains in control of his mental state. In the begininng of Resistance 2 Hale is teamed with others who are semi-resistant to the virus and is tasked with helping to lead the fight to save the United States from the Chimera. Throughout Resistance 2 Hale becomes increasingly Chimera-like until the very end of the game where it is implied that he has fully converted. He is shot by Corporal Capelli.
