Noble Six is dead, kid. Is, was, and will be. That cutting out before the final blow? That’s called Gory Discretion Shot. That speech Halsey made at the end? Makes no sense if he did survive. Look at the developer commentary here, 8:32 or so. Look at how much emphasis they place on establishing “this is the very first time you legitimately die in a Halo game.”, or adding the cracks in the helmet, or ensuring there was no way to win. Not showing the exact blow doesn’t prove anything about it, lots of films like “No Country for Old Men” have had characters killed at the drop of a hat and yet never show the body, the killing, or even any mention of them afterward at all and instead rely on the audience to affirm inside themselves “yes, they are dead.” Noble Six is not intended to have survived by Bungie, the evidence is definitely clear about that.

Or, you can be like Ajax and say "screw this, let's have Six get that deadly blow and then somebody makes an awesome rescue, resuscitating him/her for active service." Of course, they did technically do that with Kelly (or was it Linda?) in First Strike

That was Linda, but she was extracted by the Chief and given emergency medical attention immediately after being wounded and then placed in cryo sleep. It's fairly clear in Lone Wolf that the Covenant is in complete control of the area you are fighting in and have already begun to glass it. It's beyond improbable that anyone would be able to swoop in to save a mortally wounded Spartan from a bunch of high-ranking Elites and their swarms of minions and then have the time, equipment, and facilities to provide the extensive medical treatment that would be needed.



I actually never watched the dev. commentary, so I didn't know about that. I was using the excuse of Bungie not actually showing the killing blow as an excuse for survival, until I could figure out a more believable reason for survival. If I slap an AU template on it, will it be alright? Two-Six-NinerCross-ComCSV

Theoretically... yes, but some differentation and a better reason for survival would be preferred. AU articles can still be tagged for unrealism, so, see k4's article for a clearer idea of a AU Noble Six.

The thing about Halo: Reach is that Bungie wanted their last Halo game project to be very symbolic. In other words, Noble Team was created to die in valiant sacrifice, so finding loopholes to keep them alive (*cough*) would be considered improper and more than a little insulting.

Of course, it's your choice if you want to make this an alternate universe. Just take note that alternative universes aren't held in very high regard on Halo Fanon, and that your character doesn't have to be alive to make it a good article.

Minor correction Sona, only well-written alternative universes are held in high regards



Well, I'm not much of a community person, so it not being held in high regard is fine. Two-Six-NinerCross-ComCSV

AUs can still be tagged for unrealism, though, so I would suggest finding a better reason for survival. If you want Six to survive, try cutting out all the injuries to begin with, there’s no way he could have survived those.

More important than any of the unrelated crap above me...how in the hell did she go from a Lieutenant at Reach to getting a promotion to Corporal after the invasion?

Supposedly she went back to civilian life simply I guess to take advantage of the UNSC listing her as MIA. Doesn’t explain why Jun, who rescued her, didn’t just report back to ONI that he saw her, or just deliver her to them in the first place. As for why a Spartan assassin on the caliber of John suddenly returned to civilian life mid-war, or why Kurt himself didn’t recognize his own sister enlisted in Beta Company too, that’s also what I’d ask.

I believe that in the U.S. Armed Forces, if you retire and later decide to renlist or "re-up" your officer's commission, and after training specific to your career field, you will be given your last rank prior to discharge.

@Tucker, I don't think she was Kurt's sister. It says that her dad was Kurt's older brother, making him her uncle.

NCF per this.

Keep in mind the Alternate template is not for changing minor canon facts. It's for working in major deviations from canon outside of an EU.
