I Know why Prometheans change color! (Warning May contain SPOILERS)

Recommended Posts

WARNING: PARTS OF THIS ARTICLE CONTAIN REVEALED CAMPAIGN SPOILERS!

 

For quite a while people have been theorizing on why the prometehans are changing color and I have come to a conclusion. Lets start with the theories we have already heard of:

 

1.The Prometheans are orange in daylight, blue at nightime: This theory was brought to the table due the the only situations we see blue knights are in the dark and the orange knights in the light.

 

2. Classification of power: Some people thought that blue prometheans were somehow a stronger varient of the orange one relating to the elites and their colors structure.

 

3.Orange knights are controled be the Didact where the blue knights by cortana: The biggest reasons why this was thought of is that cortana is supposed to go rampant and is convienent on how the knights are blue.

 

There are a few more lesser theories but these three are the most popular at the moment. Now I will explain my theory on how it came to me....(this theory was brought together from Information from Glasslands, Gamtrailers Halo 4, Cryptum, Primordium, and other press realeases in the last week)

Watching the Gametrailers Halo 4 episode that came out last thursday on the 21 of september, Frank O'Conner goes into some detail on Chief meeting Prometheans on Requiem, Their role there, and the New Enemy (not suprising) The Didact. Frankie goes on to talk about how your first interactions are with the knights and the new covenant. They are fighting eachother making it clear that the prometheans do not want this new covenant (Storm) to interfere with what they want.

Frankie has also told us in other interviews that this new faction of covenant, The Storm (or theorized The Servants of Abiding Truth) Is at Requim due to their Religion that see the forerunners as their Gods and have information on a living god on the planet and will do anything to get to him. If this is the case then why would the Prometheans be fighting the Storm? Just wait it will become clear in a second.

Back to our gametrailers interview Frankie goes on, he says that your first encounter with the prometheans seems familiar like a defense AI system with no other real goals or intentions from them. However before he anounces the Didacts involvment within halo he says something very very important. He says that there is a specific moment in the campaign where you can see that shift in the Prometheans to a defensive group to something more. you see the prometheans as if they have organization of a higher archy. This is also when he anounces the didact. We see the prometheans as blue before the didact is awaken because they have been in a defensive state over the didact for 100,000 years. The blue is more of a calmer state in color giving us that same look of any other forerunner structure we've seen in the past halo games. Once we run into the Didact that means he now takes control over the prometheans and gives them drive, purpose and objectives making them alot more of an active construct making them Orange instead of blue. I mean think about it 3rd mission Forerunner(their blue), Infinity mission (their orange)

Over all My theory: The Prometheans are blue Before the Didact hasn't taken control over his prometheans yet, then the Prometheans turns Orange after because he has then taken control of them giving them purpose.

 

Give me your thoughts or flaws with this theory :)

Sounds like a solid theory to me. No way of confirming it until the game comes out or more information is revealed, but with the little snipits we have, it is plausible enough. Good theorising!

Good job bro, but we also saw the covenant working with the prometheans in the forerunner returns vidoc, I think that might have to do with the Didact waking up and the orange color, maybe he likes the fact the storm worships him like a god.

Its likely the Didact will see them as a nusence but see their usefulness in accomplishing his goals. Somewhere in the news releases last week someone talked about the covenant siding with the prometheans so he might be trying to stop the ancient evil awakening.

Good theory! It makes sense. As we saw from the live (Frank O'Connor's) campaign demo, we fight blue prometheans and at the very end, Chief is encountering a Dyson sphere, probably the Didact.

 

FAIL: I confused Cryptum with Dyson sphere O.o

that wasn't a dysn sphere, that was a Cryptum. Requiem is a dysn sphere

Yes and they could be other types of prometheans that come out in the night. But your theory does make a lot of sense to me.

That'd make sense - nice observations. I thought it might be a ranking order as well, but you may have changed my mind!

Well, you don't exactly know why they change colors, you're simply speculating

But it does sound possible

We also have never seen blue promeathens in spartan ops, I have a feeling this is spot on if not close to it

Prometheans change colors because. They transform. Its not part of growth its when a higher ranking officer promotes them. For example didact promoted chakas to a knight.

All info from the newest halo book.

which book are you getting this informayion from, primordium? If so then what you say about Chakas is false. The didact used the composer to infuse chakas and his other conciosness into a monitor,not a knight. And if you referring to silentium its not out yet.

look for a picture of a orange knight during night, and look for a blue knight during day, exactly solved it!

exept in one of the vidocs a couple months ago you see an orange knight assassinate an elite while orange in a dark place

Here is Even more evidence by CyReN from HaloCouncil that my theory is likely to be correct. As i said they're color pertains to purpose. As Blue Prometheans they are a defense AI against all, but in This mission Infinity AFTER Forerunner they are Orange which are now convienently Using the Help from the Storm. Ive also been reading The Thursday War and since its to early to spoil anything ill just say things in this book also back up this theory part about the covenant.
