Emile mans a giant gun which one-shots anything, leaving the little guy to fend off all the stuff he misses. Which is a lot. And then two zealots attack Emile, how ironic. His death is kinda cool, he shoots one Elite in the head with his beloved shotgun before being stabbed in the back. He still manages to lodge his combat knife in the throat of his killer, however.
Despite his obvious rivalry with Jorgey, it should be noted that in Emile's final moments he dedicates the destruction of a Covenant Phantom to Jorgey. When Jorgey hears of this, nearly fifty years later, he accepts that Emile really did feel the Pain O' Reach.
