"I've smelled that stench before..."
Posted By: Spartan Jag <>Date: 3/21/06 11:05 a.m.

Another thread to add to the pile of HGN Discussion... :)

Yesterday, I went through a brief run of the Halo 2 Campaign, mostly the Arbiter levels. I was just talking about the Halo Graphic Novel, when I hit the cutscene at the end of The Arbiter, when Spec Ops Leader walks in, and says "I've smelled that stench before...". This got me wondering. There hasn't been to much info released about Spec Ops, not even his name. Maybe Bungie will work him in? Where? I'll tell you where: That section about the Flood Infested Covenant ship. (Sorry, forgot the name, and I can't look it up here!). It makes sense to me. They could make it about a random band of Elites and Grunts, but wouldn't it be neater and cooler if it was a mission Half Jaw was on? Maybe it would explain the loss of his mandibles?

Sure, he could've gotten into dozens of fights with The Flood, or it may be someone completely different, but it would be a nice tie-in. So far, the Covenant aren't very well prepared against the Flood, it would seem (Projectile weapons work better then Plasma), maybe this isn't the dozenth/hundreth time. Maybe they don't know a whole lot, because of only a few encounters. Half Jaw could've been the only survivor, and he may have been promoted thus leading up to his current position.

I don't know. No-one knows at this point, but I just thought I'd toss that out there, because Bungie has a reputation for cool things like this, and this would be really cool. :)
