In Response To: Re: What and huh? (maxthehedgie)
: HOWEVER... if you look at the Halo 2 cutscene where Arby is sentenced to
: death, it seems to imply that his forces where right there (either waiting
: for or directly behind the PoA). If the Supreme Commander came later, he
: couldn't be the Arbiter. The Arbiter was punished because he was right
: there (when Truth asked if he was blinded and he said no and Truth asked
: why he didn't do anything if he could see the PoA right there *gasps for
: air*) when the PoA took to crash-landing on Halo, but couldn't do anything
: to stop it. The Supreme Commander would never have had the chance to even
: SEE the PoA and thus couldn't be the Arbiter. So, like I said, 'Fulsamee
: is the Arbiter. Maybe not the Supreme Commander (as I said in my previous
: post- probably in error), but now he's even MORE powerful (leader of his
: species and whatnot).
The events of Last Voyage of the Infinite Succor take place about sixty hours after the Autumn crashed (about twenty hours before the halo was destroyed). On page two of the LE instruction manual, there is a report on the events of Halo. The elite reporting takes all of the blame for his actions (as well as those of the humans), and states that he awaits the punishment which the council is to decide upon (which is exactly what happens at the start of Halo 2). At the end of this secion it is signed Supreme Commander, Fleet of Particular Justice. The purple robed elite in the HGN is a supreme commander, and is aboard the Flagship of the Fleet of Particular Justice.
