[45] When Halo 2 begins, Admiral Hood presents the Master Chief, Sergeant Johnson, and Miranda Keyes with medals aboard the Cairo Station. The Prelate sacrifices himself to stop Preparation, leaving 'Vadum with a new outlook following the encounter. Right what my kind has turned wrong." Within, she explained to them that Cortana was the important data's custodian and had been the one to choose them as her couriers. [306] Her skills as an artist, as demonstrated by the plethora of drawings in her journal, have also been noted. [96] By April 15 Halsey had viewed reconnaissance videos which showed Naraka was encircled by a ring of orbital support stations connected by a transit tube enclosed within what she called a trussing armature. Jul eventually escaped using one of the shield world's slipspace portals and traveled to the Sangheili colony world of Hesduros which had been cut off from the goings-on in the galaxy since before the Covenant civil war. [11] In interviews, Halo's voice actors stated that they had no idea that the games would become such a critical and commercial success. The potential application of this breakthrough for ORION-II was obvious, and Halsey was of the mind that stealing children away and replacing them with clones would mean there would be no going back. She confessed to being unable to wait any longer to be alone with him and made sure to press her flank against his as she pulled him through the other door into her little galley area. [191], In March 2553, she was released from Ivanoff Station and was stationed aboard the UNSC Infinity, working on incorporating the newly discovered Forerunner technology to the ship,[192] including a working Forerunner slipspace drive discovered by the REAP-X department. First Appearance Halo: Combat Evolved Serial Number CTN 0452-9 Began Service November 7, 2549 Race A.I. [170] She left things with him there, however, and just offered that they'd be speaking soon. The chief went on to relay further details about parts torn free of the fighter which had landed elsewhere, but despite there being no sign of Soren among them either, he thought it unlikely the boy could have survived. seed, but the doctor was at a loss concerning this rogue element's origin. The mission's third phase was to involve taking the captured ship to the Covenant "home world", and its fourth would see one of its leaders captured and brought to UNSC space. When her interviewer asked what she thought the solution to stopping her was, Catherine ignored the question since she doubted coming up with that would be part of a Spartan's directive and was convinced she'd been locked away for that purpose. [77][81][82], It was at 1750 hours on November 27 that the Commonwealth finally emerged in real space in the Chi Ceti system. As Halsey and 'Mdama prepared to enter the portal, they learned of rumors of the Spartans attacking personnel of Breath of Annihilation. The trainers were armed with 30mm miniguns loaded with stun rounds, but when one almost landed shots on John at point-plank range the doctor briefly panicked, for even stun rounds could kill at that distance. [42] Overall, the clones' longevity had outpaced what laboratory experiments had predicted and Halsey wondered if this could have been owed to the efforts of parents to nurture them back to health. The Covenant's return to the planet following its first repulsion led her to conclude it must have wanted something on it, so she resolved to follow up on this line of inquiry. She offered what might have been a small comfort in sharing that the data module delivered by Kat had unlocked the secrets of her nearby excavation. In Halo: The Fall of Reach, the Master Chief meets Kelly and fellow trainee Sam on their very first day of Spartan training. The physical augmentation they undergo to turn them into super soldiers is lengthy, expensive, and strenuous, with not all of them surviving the process. [106] By the end of October that year, Halsey had recently purchased upgrades for her Spartans' microfusion plants. Nyeto also spoke in John's defense, but in doing so let on that he may be younger than the age currently being claimed for him. [1], By July 21, 2517, Halsey had been provided with her own team, to which she delegated much of the responsibly for screening Outer Colonies candidates for SPARTAN-II. seed inside it. While she initially raised her daughter on Reach for several years, Halsey's work impeded her from being able to care for Miranda, and Jacob ended up raising her instead. [279], Halsey's projects and the results they yielded gained her widespread acclaim and sympathies among many high-ranking members of the UNSC military, such as Admiral Stanforth, her most powerful ally within ONI, and Fleet Admiral Hood, who deeply respected Halsey and her Spartans who had saved his own life twice, to the extent that he verbally rebuked Colonel Ackerson for detracting the Spartan-IIs. Calling himself "the Didact's Hand," Jul's faction initially seeks the Forerunner warrior Didact as an ally against humanity. Not even Bhuj's vendors, she'd claimed, remembered him. of the Minority predicted that a successful repeat of what she'd done could lead to immortality for its kind. It was Keyes, however, who first identified their subject, a six-year-old boy named John, after Halsey showed an image to him. Dr Halsey is going to 75 locations to evaluate children for the Spartan II project. She explained that RED FLAG was to be executed in four phases. It was only then that she realized she had already made a note of this "hiccup" closer to the time it had occurred but could not recall doing so. His first chronological appearance is in The Fall of Reach, where, as a young Lieutenant, he accompanies Dr. Catherine Halsey on her mission to screen possible SPARTAN-II Project subjects. Captain Wallace gave orders to ready another round at that, but Halsey argued against this, instead imploring him to initiate evasive maneuvers. [158], By 1126 hours on July 26 SWORD Base had come under attack by an SDV-class heavy corvette and Covenant ground forces from the Fleet of Valiant Prudence. were planned to commence in around three hours. She did note to him, however, that he had become stronger than anyone had imagined the Spartans could be. Halsey then stopped him before he could start smoking right there in her office and asked if there was anything else to discuss. Carver's model predicted a breakdown of social order in the Outer Colonies within twenty years unless strict governmental control was established, reinforced by an immediate and permanent military presence. He believed they were, so she let him know something unexpected had happened and that the Admiralty wanted them deployed as a first test. A fully functional Covenant vessel could give the UNSC the knowledge needed to develop effective countermeasures. How this symbol might relate to the symbol, she was still unsure. She estimated that there is a billion to one shot that they could have replicated Johnson's condition, but conversely ONI would do it to save humanity from a greater foe. [298] Her appearance also reminded Halsey a little bit of Miranda. She was unsure why Spartans would have been committed there, seeing as the planet was in all probability about to be glassed at the time, but even Kalmiya was unable to break the section's encryption. She remarked that John whether John was lucky or just extraordinarily fast, he had made the cut. With about twenty minutes until the Infinity was due to arrive Buck broke out a pack of playing cards and asked if anyone was up for Hearts but Halsey ignored him, as she was working on a tablet she'd scrounged up. she almost was but wished for her to summon Chief Petty Officer Franklin Mendez, the drill instructor who would be overseeing the trainees' physical training and hand-to-hand combat, to join her first. Halsey implored Stanforth to make FLEETCOM understand this, but ultimately backed down and admitted that she had been making assumptions about the aliens' strategy that were unjustified with what little they knew about them. Halsey in Halo: The Fall of Reach - The Animated Series. [30] In total, one hundred and fifty subjects were to be considered. [95] She was seated between Captain Ascot and Colonel Crowther; also present were Captain Nelly Hamm, Sergeant Johnson, Lieutenant Commander Nyeto, and John-117, who the debriefing principally concerned. [107] The details of her success were published as part of the work of another researcher, Doctor Hardy, who had been studying the gauntlet. [93] At 0558 hours she led John-117 into the ship's tactical planning center for a meeting with the aforementioned men, Captain Halima Ascot, and Colonel Marmon Crowther, commander of the 21st Space Assault Battalion of orbital drop shock troopers. It was at that moment that Osiris attacked Jul and his guards, killing them all. Soon after, a Covenant fleet launches an attack on Earth, and Keyes takes control of the UNSC ship In Amber Clad and assists in the defense of New Mombasa, Kenya. [249] Halsey is an atheist, lacking belief in the existence of any god. Halsey wondered why ONI didn't just say the location was a dumpsite for toxins and other radiologicals, but she noted that this leak gave her more insight into how Section Two thought—bolstering her knowledge of what to watch for in the future. [74] Unbeknownst to them, they were actually being recalled there so the doctor could use them as couriers for the fragment of Cortana which would need to be reunited with the rest of her before the Pillar of Autumn departed. Intrepid Eye destroys Fred's AI Wendell and nearly escapes using Fred's armor, but Veta Lopis, a Gao investigator who was investigating a series of murders committed by Intrepid Eye, disables Fred's suit with an explosive she had earlier planted and the rogue AI is captured. [164] At some point during the seventeen days following her meeting with NOBLE Team Catherine got to talk with Sára Sorvad about her father. She asked Déjà how certain the A.I. [37] Halsey felt he was beginning to suspect there was more to their incursions than mere field observations so she requested that he be reassigned to the Magellan with a commission to full lieutenant both for his own protection and the protection of the program. She explained the role Blue Team was to play in the defense of Jamshid, the planet's largest city, but then left the remainder of the briefing to Halsey. As Osiris and the Swords of Sanghelios prepared to follow it Halsey made sure Locke knew Cortana had been built from a matrix of her own mind, cautioning him that like her, she would take drastic measures if she thought they served the greater good. By then, she figured, they would be willing to try anything to recover, as she couldn't imagine them to survive the vigorous indoctrination and training they had to only become passive spectators. The two did not see each other again until August 12, 2552, a moment that Halsey had both hoped for but dreaded. Halsey insisted on personally searching the crash-site, but 'Mdama decided to scourge the crash-site himself, and he ordered Halsey to remain aboard his carrier. In Halo: Primordium, 343 Guilty Spark, once the human Chakas, claims to know where to find the Librarian, suggesting that she has survived. [98] There have also been several series of licensed action figures produced, with the Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2 collectibles being produced by Joyride Studios in several series. Halsey disputed Admiral Cole's characterization of the mission as a failure, seeing as the Lucky Break seemed to have always been a trap—one perhaps meant to capture Spartans—that had not borne fruit for the Covenant. [49][50] Since she had always lacked the time or interest to spend the money earned, these contracts had always benefited her little. She has formal degrees as a medical doctor and computer scientist,[8][19] and she has demonstrated remarkable skill in AI development, quantum theory and slipspace-related phenomena, the engineering of military equipment such as power armor and related technologies, as well as xenoarchaeological research into Forerunner technology and the translation of Forerunner symbols. Unbeknownst to her, these interruptions were caused by Cortana, who the doctor had wrongly thought she could keep occupied at that moment with checking the systems on the Pillar of Autumn. Based on the failures documented surrounding the genetic augmentation and immunosuppressant administration provided to ORION candidates, Halsey determined that the most suitable candidates for a future generation of augmented warriors would need to be prepubescent and possess more malleable and robust DNA structures and repair enzymes. She had hoped his Special operations background and creativity exhibited at Harvest would lend themselves to the creation of new infiltration tactics for each ship they targeted. On July 15, 2558, Halsey made a personal journal entry on her views of the Forerunners and recent events. [143] It was around this time that Catherine then began to investigate files under the purview of CINCONI Margaret Parangosky without permission, especially those related to the planet Onyx in the Zeta Doradus system. Examining Ackerson's files in CASTLE Base, she had concluded that the colonel had been conducting his own Spartan project which had been kept secret from her. There she showed Keyes the footage she'd recorded of their conversation. At Halsey's direction, a structure that was the focal point for one of the signals was eventually penetrated by the Covenant forces with her. [316] This absent-mindedness eventually backfired on her when she forgot the journal during her escape from SWORD Base. [124][127], When Halsey was finally awakened from cryostasis she found herself facing none other than John-117, who had infiltrated Resplendent Fervor to rescue her. Immensely intelligent, reclusive and somewhat self-centered, Halsey is almost entirely devoted to her work and the pursuit of knowledge to advance humankind. When Soren asked how many of his brothers and sisters remained, she told him almost half had died. And finally, Catherine took care to recognize HCFS, which represented her eyes and ears in the field. He claimed to have a friend who had trained with a bunch of eight-year-olds on Reach seven years prior. She noted that the Mark V armor they'd soon be gifted with was one small operation and a few tests from completion. Halsey simply nodded but was displeased, wondering if Sorvad might actually know what had happened at Farragut Station in the past and the reason for its relocation. Before they went, Halsey shared the last thing Cortana had said to her. From the way Keyes was glancing at her, Halsey could tell he was impressed at her ability to put Toran through his paces so rigorously, so she asked if he had a question for her. She then told them they were to carry her to the ship-breaking yards in Asźod, where they would find the Halcyon-class light cruiser UNSC Pillar of Autumn waiting to spirit her away. [142] Miranda had recently been one of only two people to make it off the Hilbert alive after she'd given the order to sacrifice it to take out a Covenant destroyer threatening three UNSC corvettes. [39] On the fifth day of training, the children were given haircuts. Unfortunately, it was demonstrated that using the protocols in this way accelerated the terminal cross-linkage effect of her A.I.s. In her note on social media, All details on the site celebsbar.com She is one of many "smart" AIs, and is based on the brain of Dr. Halsey; the nature of her programming means that she will eventually "think" herself to death after a lifespan of about seven years. Ultimately, it was determined that further experimentation of the like would need to be actively encouraged. Thankfully, the combined efforts of PRO-49776 and another Seraph commandeered by both Kelly-087 and Frederic-104 kept them from being killed. Halo: Contact Harvest reveals that Tartarus became Chieftain after killing the former Chieftain, his uncle Maccabeus, and seizing the Chieftain's weapon. Upon assuming office, each Hierarch picks a new regnal name from a list of names of former Hierarchs, similar to the practice of some Orthodox Patriarchs. The others on NOBLE Team, of course, were a mystery to her, but seeing them did remind her once more that Mendez was missing. Commander Miranda Keyes is the daughter of Jacob Keyes and Catherine Halsey, whom she lived with in her younger years. Carter informed her that she was to be escorted back to CASTLE Base by Jun-A266. had been provided with the very best Covenant language translation software, Halsey said, so that she could infiltrate their computer and communications systems. Without a second through every Spartan present stood upon hearing this, and Catherine thanked them. Halsey was glad to help him, as she could see that his theories about slipstream anomalies could lead to a number of innovations, such as those which would result in faster ships and more accurate jumps. Both she and John then concluded that using GA-TL1 Longswords to distract the aliens could afford them the safe distance they would need to use nuclear weaponry. [196][196] Among these was the disappearance of Henry Glassman, the Infinity's chief engineer, who had been unwillingly teleported by the artifact to an unknown location. "The ends justify the means" appears to be her ideology, as an interrogator after she was arrested accused her of. Blue Team works alongside the Ferrets who manage to infiltrate a Keeper base, but discover the Admiral's family dead. [91] In order to stop Halo from being fired, Gravemind teleports the Master Chief and Arbiter to separate locations, but also uses them as a distraction; Gravemind infests the human ship In Amber Clad, and uses it to invade the Covenant city of High Charity. Writing in her journal on that November 2533 date, the doctor wondered what other characteristics could emerge from an A.I. [1], On February 23, 2525 Halsey got a chance to have a long chat with John during which, to her surprise, she learned he was convinced the Spartans were to enter a new, more severe phase of training. She also learned how to employ the local translocation grid, allowing the humans to move across the megastructure while evading the Covenant forces that pursued them.
