  • "That is why I am sharing it with you now. We are talking about trust, after all." - Locke to 'Vadam after the latter confirmed he did not know Locke was hunting John-117.
  • "May I ask you something? Your people used to call him "Demon." Was that an insult or a compliment?" - Locke asking 'Vadam a question about the Sangheili's opinion of John-117.

Friend or Foe?[edit]

  • "He's gone AWOL and the UNSC want him back. I'm going to bring him home." - Locke after 'Vadam asked if John was his friend or enemy.

Halo 5: Guardians Spartan Locke Ad[edit]

  • "All hail the conquering hero. Let us remember him as a protector and not the one who gave us...This. As our savior, and not our betrayer! Let us see him forever, as you. And not as you.
