In Response To: Re: What and huh? (maxthehedgie)
: And the Supreme Commander of the Covenant fleet at Halo (the Fleet of
: Particular Justive, to be exact) is the Sangheili that later becomes our
: beloved Arby. In the first trio of novels, Orna 'Fulsamee IS the fleet's
: supreme commander's name. I don't see why everyone finds it so difficult
: to use logic and thus realize that if the supreme commander (in the
: novels) is named Orna 'Fulsamee, the Arbiter (in Halo 2) is the supreme
: commander of the fleet, and the supreme commander (in the HGN) is wearing
: a very snazzy cape, then they the must all be the same person! He is
: Arbiter Orna 'Fulsamee, legitimate leader of the Sangheili people during
: these troubled times and former Supreme Commander of the Fleet of
: Particular Justice! Gah, what a title. I'd say, just address me as
: Excellency. Fewer words.
: While Arby's name has not been confirmed as such, it's probably because
: Bungie has not seen it necessary to do. It's so obvious that we shouldn't
: be arguing in the first place.
Except that Fulsamee is only a ship commander. It never says anywhere that he commands more than his ship. In the Flood, he orders his crew to fire, revokes the order, and orders for boarders, but never for anyone else.
