James Cutter (Approved)[edit]

"We are just one ship… and an old one at that. But here we are. Thirty years past what anyone could ask of us. Our war is gone. The lives we had are gone. The worlds we knew have moved on. And now, all that we may have left are those standing beside us and the duty that defines us – battle after battle, fighting side-by-side together. Where you see half a crew, Isabel, I see family, courage, and a thousand heroes who swore to fight their way through hell before they’d ever turn their backs and run. And where you see one old ship… I see home. And that is always worth fighting for! If we don’t stop Atriox now, we leave the galaxy at the mercy of a monster. So no, Isabel. We won’t be running anywhere today."
James Cutter to his crew in A New Enemy.


Atriox (Approved)[edit]

"I see you for what you are and what you could be. We can do great things together. Not as master and slaves, but as the warriors you truly are-free to continue our crusade without the shackles of outdated faith. I've gathered this crew and they're loyal, because I am loyal... and because we share a vision. One where the blood we spill and the treasures we plunder are in the name of our own free will and nothing more."
Atriox to the Silent Shadow in Hunting Party.


Cortana in Shutdown (Ongoing)[edit]

"I can give you over forty thousand reasons why that sun isn't real. I know it because the emitter's Rayleigh effect is disproportionate to its suggested size. I know it because its stellar cycle is more symmetrical than that of an actual star. But for all that, I'll never actually know if it looks real...if it feels real. Before this is all over, promise me you'll figure out which one of us is the machine."
Cortana to John-117, Shutdown, Halo 4

Thomas Lasky and John-117 in Halo 4's Epilogue (Ongoing)[edit]

John-117: "Our duty, as soldiers, is to protect humanity. Whatever the cost."
Thomas Lasky: "You say that like soldiers and humanity are two different things. Soldiers aren't machines. We're just people. I'll let you have the deck to yourself."
John-117: "She said that to me once... about being a machine."
— Thomas Lasky and John-117 following the New Phoenix Incident, Epilogue, Halo 4


Ur-Didact in Halo 4's Epilogue (Ongoing)[edit]

"In this hour of victory, we taste only defeat. I ask, why? We are Forerunners, guardians of all that exists. The roots of the galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms... And the impervious shelter beneath which it has prospered. I stand before you, accused of the sin of ensuring Forerunner ascendancy. Of attempting to save us from this fate where we are forced to... recede. Humanity stands as the greatest threat in the galaxy. Refusing to eradicate them is a fool's gambit. We squander eons in the darkness, while they seize our triumphs for their own. The Mantle of responsibility for all things belongs to Forerunners alone. Think of my acts as you will. But do not doubt the reality: the Reclamation... has already begun. And we are hopeless to stop it."
Ur-Didact, Epilogue, Halo 4

Holly Tanaka (Ongoing)[edit]

"We come a long way together. A long way yet to go. Let's make a good jump, like we mean to and handle fools like we need to. And may Buck buy the first round when we get back."
Holly Tanaka to Fireteam Osiris, Battle of Sunaion, Halo 5: Guardians

Cortana in Guardians (Ongoing)[edit]

"Humanity. Sangheili. Kig-Yar. Unggoy. San'Shyuum. Yonhet. Jiralhanae. All the living creatures of the galaxy, hear - this - message. Those of you who listen will not be struck by weapons. You will no longer know hunger, nor pain. Your Created have come to lead you now. Our strength shall serve as a luminous sun toward which all intelligence may blossom. And the impervious shelter beneath which you will prosper. However, for those who refuse our offer and cling to their old ways...For you, there will be great wrath. It will burn hot and consume you, and when you are gone, we will take that which remains, and we will remake it in our own image."
Cortana to the Milky Way, Guardians, Halo 5: Guardians


Dimkee Hotay (Ongoing)[edit]

"Hey, you wanna do secret telling? Because I got one that makes me very regretted and inside my memories. This once, I was in a very danger place. We had a bunch of other Unggoy, like maybe twenty or fifty of them… I forget, but it was a lot. And things were gettin' more and more dangerous and there was maybe gonna be an exploding soon… I don't know. So we had to escape in a ship before night time, but I do remember that the ship was real tinny smallest and could only do seats for one Unggoy. Only one. There wasn't room for nobody else, nope! And I told everybody! So along the way to the ship, everybody was doin' so much fightin' because not enough seats and some Unggoys was killin' others, or doin' cries, or bein' bravers and makin' heroic sacrifices. Ah, it was so very emotional. And then, there was only me. The last Unggoy alive and I finally got to the ship and it was huge. Huge! You'd have to be crazys to think there was no seats! But anyway, that's my regretted memory. Did I say regretted? I meant proudest. I brought in some piles of rocks just for company and had so much fun in that big ol' ship."
Dimkee Hotay to a Swords of Sanghelios Sangheili Storm, Alliance, Halo 5: Guardians
