Chief, can you hear me?

When l was born seven years ago,

l already possessed the entire sum

of recorded human knowledge.

lt took me almost two hoursto process

and understand all that information.

But l can't be surewhich memories are

mine or even what'strue, what's real. . .

l've discovered a great deal more information since then.

For an A.l., l've lived a very long time. . .

But now, after seven human years,

l have finally come to understand your role,

your place in the universe

and how you came to be here.

The eons of human evolution,

invention, aspiration, and war.


The oldest, most enduring of human practices.

A great civilization existed in this universe.

Like all great civilizations, they faced

a sudden and dire turn of events.

Athreat to their primacy from outside.

Something they never expected, never prepared for.

A deeply alien threat they called simply, 'The Flood''.

An unstoppable force, an unquenchable thirst.

lt devoured everything it touched.

At first, their technology, their courage

seemed like it might prevail.

But they waited too long to see

the threat, to join the fight.

The Flood had spread too far and too wide.

lt fed on intelligent life and in doing so,

became ever more intelligent itself.

The Flood was unique.

lt used their very strength against them.

They were, the Forerunners.

The Forerunnerswere a wise,

highly intelligent, noble people,

and with a belief in justice, in peace,

they bravely faced the adversary.

They sought to sterilize it.

l can only guess some of this.

Fill in the gaps.

But it was an impossible fight.

Realizing defeat was inevitable,

the Forerunners made a decision to destroy everything.

lronically, they did this in order to preserve life,

to create a future for you, yet unborn,

knowing they themselveswould not survive.

ln a desperate attempt to ensure that

they would be the last victims,

they built a secret weapon of terrifying power.

lt wascalled ''Halo.''

An array of weapons scattered throughout the Galaxy.

lts effect would spread throughout

known space, destroying the Flood

and every thinking creature in the Galaxy.

You see, the Flood fed on sentient speciesto survive.

The devicewould destroy the infection and itsfood supply.

Athousand other planswere tried and failed.

Thiswasthe last resort...


And finally, it was over in an instant.

Every intelligent life form left in

the galaxy was obliterated.

But from the ashes of apparent defeat, a victory.

The Forerunners had catalogued, stored and protected

population samplesfrom the Halo effect.

ONA, embryos, even living specimens.

ln order to repopulate, restore the Galaxy.

Once the Galaxy wascleansed of Flood,

the threat sterilized, they repopulated worlds.

Rebuilt that which they had torn down and reseeded life.

But the Forerunnersthemselveswere gone forever.

This destruction, thisconflagration,

wastheir gift to you and their sacrifice.

They left you to reclaim your world,

to rebuild it with your own hands.

By sacrificing themselves.


lt seemed that life had finally found its peace.

English SOH


Peace settled on the Galaxy.

But it would be a fleeting peace.

For the great sacrificewas in vain.

The end of onewar did not signal an end to all wars.

lt is a great irony, that the nature of war always

revealsthe true nature of thosewho fight.

And from their earliest days humanity began to fight.

War, after war.

lt swarmed over the Earth and therewas no ending in sight.

ln the midst of the desire to shed blood

you accidentally stumbled upon

the seeds of your salvation.

A great hope.

But you found something else aswell;

the seeds of your destruction.

Therewere many sacrifices.

Humankind was mired in horrific conflict,

meaningless bloodshed, leaving the

great Earth eternally scarred.

But finally, you looked up from the blood and

from the dirt and from the dying, to the stars.

You had not given up on the idea of

reaching out, yearning, seeking a new horizon.

And finding a new space to grow and prosper.

For the first time, all of humankind was

united in a shared vision, a common goal.

You realized that this once-great planet,

was now too small for you.

Therewere too many souls in so little a world.

So you sought other worlds.

Worldswhere you could escape

your addiction to destruction.

But theworlds you found were never enough.

Never enough to satisfy the age-old instincts.

Speed and distance did nothing to

separate you from your nature.

Old resentments, ancient squabbles re-emerged.

History began itsterrible repetition.

And once again, man fought man.

Like a virus, war was always lurking inside you.

No matter how hard you tried to suppress it,

it just fought harder to get out.

lt always got out.

Humankind had always looked to the stars,

to the heavensfor answers.

Sometimes you didn't likewhat you found there.

And while the galaxy revealed few answers,

it was more than willing to

confront you with new questions.

But there has always been one truly

unifying force in human history.

Onecall that would always unite you.

The emergence of a common enemy.

That enemy wasthe Covenant.

When this new foe emerged and

declared war against humanity,

you finally united under a single banner.

And theweapons you so carefully constructed

to control your own baser instincts,
