Please give the most reasonable explanation of why Pillar of Autumn was on Reach in Halo: Reach when it was supposed to be in space according to The Fall of Reach. I'm still unsure of the whole thing because I didn't read all the data logs.
The data drops appear to be a Retcon of some sort regarding the time. I do recommend reading the data drops as they do a pretty good explanation regarding everything, including why the Autumn has M90 Shotguns while Reach has M45's, the Atmospheric Boosters and a couple of other tidbits. If you read them alongside Halsey's Journal, they do make quite the difference.
Pls answer dis:
How did the majority of Spartan 2's die? Y is chief boss? Y lack of moar bad-arses?
Sarcasm is serious, yo.
These are the ones I can remember;
Sam- Died in 2525 after his suit breached while boarding a Covenant Ship. He stayed behind to detonate a nuke (This was the Spartans' first contact with covenant)
Solomon/ Arthur- Died in Operation: Warm Blanket (Halo Legends, the Package)
Jorge-Died detonating a slipspace bomb aboard the CSO-Class Supercarrier Long Night of Solace
Black Team (All four of them)-Died fighting the Didact on Installation 03 shortly after the events of Halo 4
Randall-Died detonating a HAVOK Tac-nuke on the Alpha Shard. He was a decommissioned Spartan but eh, he was still a II.
Daisy- Died on Harvest (Halo Legends, Homecoming)
Soren-Crippled by the augmentations and defected to the insurrection. Shot down in a pelican while trying to escape reach
Kurt-Formally died early in the war,and became leader if the SIII's. Actually died on Onyx by Covenant hands.
Will- Also died on Onyx
The majority of Spartan II's died on Reach, though.
Here's the ones that are alive;
Musa- Crippled by augmentations and works in ONI (wheelchair-bound) as the pseudo head of the SPARTAN branch.
Douglas, Alice, Jerome- Unknown. Presumed alive
Grey Team- Unknown, presumed alive
Cassandra-Unknown, presumed alive
Maria-Left the Spartans and started a family
A bunch of others that were crippled by augmentations now work in ONI
That spartan that was in the DOA4 halo expansion that I forgot the name of is also a canon character. Even if the events if the DOA stuff aren't.
I'll give the best answer I can; chief has never been stated to be the smartest, strongest, fastest or the most charismatic of the Spartans. He was always average: but he was a leader, and he had luck. The former because he could evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of a team and use them because he had an amazing tactical mind. The latter is due to the Librarians Geas.
See: Spartan-III, Spartan-IV, ODST
That's not a definitive list, that's the majority. There's probably a couple I forgot to mention.
