The Forerunner first-aid monitor is a form of Sentinel-like machine encountered inside Shield World 006 in Onyx.

History[edit]

Numerous monitors followed and inspected the human survivors of the Onyx Conflict in November 2552, notably pricking Halsey in the right thigh with a needle-like protrusion and testing her blood. Linda-058 destroys the monitor before it can leave believing it had attacked Halsey. Halsey suggests that it could detect exhaled ketones and was simply monitoring her because she was hungry.[1] The Spartan-III Lucy-B091 later encountered the Huragok Prone to Drift which utilised a monitor to inspect her. [3]

Description[edit]

The monitors are described to be a matte-gray cylinder no larger than a wine bottle[2], and are capable of similar anti-gravity propulsion like Sentinels. Kelly-087, when holding a monitor, remarks that it "feels like it's not here. It doesn't weigh anything".[4] They contain a spongy material which can be saturated by substance samples for analysis.[1] It supposedly has numerous illuminated symbols on its underside - Halsey, upon inspection, notes two blinking blue, and one green-white.
