Halo Infinite Story & Intel
From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
Story & Intel is a collection of information tied to the several seasons of Halo Infinite.
The Story So FarCortana’s dominion has ended, but the merciless forces of the Banished have rushed in to fill the void, decimating all who stand in their way. Spartan Commander Agryna has enlisted a new generation of Spartans and is preparing them to face the Banished—and perhaps even more dangerous foes. But a few scattered Spartans remain in the field. These Spartans are rugged and resourceful. Hunters in the dark. Lone wolves.
Spartan Academy Commander AgrynaEven before she was approved for recruitment into the Spartan-IV program, Laurette Agryna displayed exemplary leadership and the willingness and capability to make every soldier around her better. For Agryna, every challenge is an opportunity to grow and learn from, so that solutions can be shared to the betterment of her team, the UNSC, and humanity as a whole. Spartan Agryna is currently the acting commander of the Avery J Johnson Academy of Military Science, helping ensure that the next generation of Spartan super-soldiers are ready for any challenge thrown their way.
Spartan Hieu DighHieu Dinh was a field analyst with ONI Section III tasked with capturing and re-purposing Covenant technology before ultimately being recruited into the SPARTAN-IV program. As a new recruit, Dinh’s fireteam was sent to raid a fledgling Yanme’e hive within a derelict Forerunner facility. The operation met a catastrophic end, leaving Dinh seriously wounded and claiming the lives of his team. But while Hieu still bears the scars of this horrific experience, his amiable, resilient personality still lets this fierce warrior flash a smile in the face of impending death—a resilience he will need now more than ever.
Spartan Sigrid EklundEconomical in both word and movement, Sigrid Eklund’s calm and reserved demeanor is evidence of her deeply strategic mind. Before recruitment into SPARTAN-IV, Sigrid's skills were finely honed during countless unconventional warfare operations as a UNSC Army Ranger, operating deep behind enemy lines to support resistance groups and eliminate key targets on Covenant-occupied worlds. This experience serves her well in the current conflict, particularly against the Banished and their rapidly-evolving strategies.
IratusDevious, cunning, and abrasive, Iratus is a Banished artificial intelligence construct—the first of its kind. Though trapped by Spartan Dinh near the shipbreaking yards on Camber, Iratus infiltrated the Spartan’s neural matrix, compromising Dinh’s armor systems and cognitive functions. Spartan Eklund managed to successfully pilot a commandeered Banished Phantom to the Academy to seek emergency assistance from Spartan Commander Agryna, but whether their efforts to save Dinh’s life are successful remains to be seen.
LV106: According to the breach logs, the intrusion package was cycling an internally sourced encryption, but the retrieval signature was Jiralhanae.
LV038: I'm not surprised. Expanding our neural matrix donor pool beyond humanity was always going to draw some attention eventually. Knowing what they took, it makes complete sense.
LV106: That project was a walled garden. No one on the outside should have even known about it.
LV038: Looks like we overestimated the strength of those walls.
LV106: What would the Banished be able to do with our tech? How would they even kno--LV038: I don't know. Nobody does. And that's what scares me the most.
//SND:S.MELVOIN//REC:L.AGRYNA//SUB:BAN SUITAICommander Agryna, we’ve finished the requested process and are ready for selective deployment. It wasn’t easy with the limited resources we have on site, but we managed to isolate a viable instance of the Iratus construct thanks to the recent exploits of your new cohort. This instance is undergoing quarantine and will be prepared for replication and distribution to qualified S-IV operatives to test within the simulation environment. Hopefully by observing these personality shards on the battlefield we’ll be able to learn more about what it’s ultimately capable of. All preliminary readings show that the contained instances should be inert and safe for integration, but we’ll be monitoring each user closely nonetheless.

Jun, I've taken a look at your recent recommendations and feel that Spartan Eklund would be an ideal candidate for this next undertaking we spoke of. Her performance while attached to Fireteam Crimson was nothing short of extraordinary, and while the results of BELLINGHAM and LATE TAXI were certainly group achievements, I’m confident her skill set can produce similar gains in more "isolated" endeavors. We'll sort out the details this week and get them sent over.- Musa
