Production notes[edit]

The short story was not written by Troy Denning, but by the people at 343 Industries. It was written when Troy Denning was revising Halo: Shadows of Reach as 343 Industries saw a chance to expand on a detail in the book to tie-in and prepare for something else.[3]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Since the Covenant Loyalists using plasma rifles were Brutes and they were assigned to the Anodyne Spirit after the Great Schism, it's possible that they were Type-25 Brute plasma rifles instead.
  2. ^ It is possible that the Phantoms used by the Covenant Loyalists were Type-44 Phantoms, but they most likely were Type-52 Phantoms since this model was newer and saw extensive use during the late-war battles in which the Anodyne Spirit was involved.

They saw a chance to expand on a detail in Shadows that would tie-in to and prepare for something else. Maybe a couple of something elses. Don't ask me what, because I'm not sure I know."
