The History of Dana

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

The History of Dana was the Sleeping Princess's attempt to explain what happened to Melissa, and later Dana Awbrey. However, at the time, all the English she knew was what had been emailed to her.


  • Queen- The AI part of Melissa
  • Sleeping Princess- The young human part of Melissa
  • Widow- The SPDR, an emergency repair program inside Melissa
  • Pious Flea- The Seeker, a Covenant AI that infected Melissa
