From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

Connectivity is the third poem from the short story collection Halo: Evolutions - Essential Tales of the Halo Universe.

It describes the connection between Cortana and John-117. It was written by Jonathan Goff, while Gabriel "Robogabo" Garza created the artwork.

The Poem[edit]

Theirs is a connection,

deeper than circuitry

Beyond that of man and machine

deeper still; the electric flash of synapse

It is bound in destiny; fortified in trust

deeper than blood
greater than love

Theirs is a union

the "Demon" and the goddess
the warrior and the intellect

Built for destruction Created for war

To deliver peace; through force and fire

Against an enemy from beyond the stars

Advanced and devout
In their wake; only glass
and the echoed screams of the dying

Threatened by oblivion; Tested by the promise of eternity

Yet they remain;
these two as one

Somewhere, out amongst the vast cold of the universe proper

They journey forth, into the unknown

This princess, of light and reason
This weapon, of flesh and bone
