: wait, the covenant know next to nothing about the Flood? they've been
From the Conversations From The Universe pamphlet, a report from one Prophet to another ends with this:
"Humans we know and understand. They are vermin to be trampled. But the Flood was unexpected. Were they placed there as a test of our faith? Are they an enemy to be conquered? Or are they an article of our faith? Nature tells us to strike back when we are ourselves struck, but this event was unprecedented. Are we to rail against the wrath of god?
Our scientists will analyze the scraps and fragments we recovered, and as ever, we will find use for what we have learned. Perhaps this Flood could be, if not an ally, then a weapon. The Forerunners have blessed us with obscure gifts in the past. This Flood hammered the Human forces every bit as hard as our own.
We cannot assume the Flood is gone; after all, it must have sprung from some source.
The Flood, it seems, was imprisoned on Halo, but what if we calculated incorrectly? What if the Flood had sanctuary there?"
From that exchange, it doesn't seem as though the Covenant have known about the flood prior to their releasing it on Installation 04. If the Spec Ops Commander was present then, it would add meaning to his line, "That stench...I've smelled it before..."
