In Response To: Re: Will Marathon/PiD mysteries ever be revealed? (Doomguy)

: Ya i have seen that page before.

: Other questions i have is the Jjaro species still alive? After all they
: appeared a few years after the events of PiD to beam the Dreaming God out.

This post suggests they may not be; specifically the part about "an unnamed individual". So does this one, given Hamish's chummyness with Bungie back in those days, although that's more circumstantial.

Another thing: We don't actually know that Jjaro came to Earth. Ryu'Toth said they would, but he may not even have known at the time that his people/masters/creators were extinct.

: So why our they supposedly extinct during the Marathon games? I have heard
: the US government classified the PiD mission. So Durendal does not know
: about it.

Durandal knew about what the UESC found on the Moon, but as for the events of PID, no idea. The Jjaro are supposed extinct because nobody's ever found them in spite of all the relics they've left behind.

: I heard that Jjaro technology was used to create the Battleroids so where did
: the humans get that advanced technology?

Possibly from Earth's moon, as noted above.

: Also our the Security Officer memories about his earlier life and being born
: on Mars Fake? Was he really born on Mars?

Almost certainly (since he doesn't remember dying or becoming a battleroid) and it doesn't really matter, respectively.

: Also another question is why does the Security Officer have a sense of Deja
: Vu when entering the Marathon (Oddly, this is familiar to you, as if it
: were from an old dream, but you can't exactly remember... )? It seems
: Bungie was going to expand upon this subject maybe but they never did. Im
: sure it is all shrouded in the Security Officers mysterious past.

I see it as just one of the various hints that he's not who he thinks he is; building up to the final confirmation in M2's final screen. It might have been a more satisfying resolution if it were done in a terminal or a cutscene - maybe something like "Don't feel too bad. You never really belonged with them. / After all, you're not human." - but what's done is done.

: PS: Sorry for asking these questions. Just curious.
