In Response To: An idea about the "statues" under the citadel (Lion O Cyborg)

: In 6000 Feet Under, there is a S'pht terminal that talks about a virus
: believed to have been the pfhor cordyceps that evolved into the idea for
: the Flood in Halo. Notice that the left "statue" not only has
: what appear to be ribs or other bones of some kind, but it sort of
: resembles putrid, grey flesh with a green growth on the left?

: I may be wrong about this but I wonder if those are not supposed to be
: statues, but samples of butchered pfhor flesh that the S'pht were testing
: the S'ct'lac'tr virus on, and when the zombie pfhor were dropped, Bungie
: kept the virus test sample assets in the game for decoration. (and so they
: wouldn't go to waste)

I highly doubt it - having had a look at the original assets in the Shapes file (the version you're looking at is the updated HD scenery, which I assume is from the XBLA port) the original versions are a bit more geometric in nature and one even appears to have S'pht text on it; it's very faint, to be sure, but it definitely looks like text. The sequence names also refer to them as "Sculpture Block 1", "Sculpture Block 2", and "Sculpture blob".

Vale,
Perseus
