1.) That's a lot of hunters....
2.) I bet Cortana's going to make a cameo appearance.
Overall...epic. Thanks for posting it.
1) I counted FIVE...and a Scarab...OH. HOLY. S***.
2) That was Halsey, indeed...but Cortana was still with MC by this time. I wonder who Auntie Dot (AI) is, though...?
I'll go back and check in the novel...but I think in The Fall of Reach when the Master Chief is busy clearing stuff in space and saving Johnson (for the first of many times) Cortana's somewhere inbetween locations on Reach, the Pillar of Autumn, and the rest of the UNSC battlecore. She was multi-tasking like crazy. Besides, Halsey is referencing Cortana's line "I know how to pick them" and she was looking at the display...I bet she was looking at Cortana, and it just got cut off before they showed us.
Remember, it's always Cortana's quotes refering to Halsey, not the other way around.
And that wierd "glowing blue chain-link fence" symbol that pops up is that of Auntie Dot
Hmmm...second Halsey-based AI, maybe...? O.o
Yes, yes, yes. Canonically Cortana quotes Halsey because she's made from a flash-clone of Halsey's brain. What I meant is that Cortana said the line a few years ago in Halo 3.
...didn't Halsey already have a second AI based off of her? I really need to go back and re-read all of the novels. I feel like, yes, she did. And if I remember correctly, she destroyed the AI as she abandoned Castle Base with an over-ride code or something like that.
you are right it was cortanas older sister and 1st AI flash clone of halseys brain.
That AI helped create cortana. But Halsey created 90% of the AI flash clones, since she put a self destruct code into each AI that had major importance. So its going to be a different AI more than likely Auntie Dot
Aloysius:If you think about it, Galactus is a giant purple alien who eats planets. Kind of like the Covenant.
It's official, straight from the mouth of an employee who works on Halo.
The Covenant eat planets.
