Unknown intelligence

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

This unknown intelligence is a Forerunner archival catalog that created the Bestiarum, a document detailing the state of the galaxy after the Great Schism.[1][2][3]


The intelligence recorded information into a document sometime after the Great Schism, including information about several species' homeworlds and the Forerunners' Technological Achievement Tiers. Sources for the information included the Halo Array, Shield Worlds, 2401 Penitent Tangent, and 343 Guilty Spark, with the latter Monitor's observations "under investigation".

The intelligence showed a little sadness when it theorized the San'Shyuum population to be less than 1,000 after the Flood invasion of High Charity, and it was happy to see at least one of the Builders' "most humble creations", the Huragok, had survived the firing of the Array.

  3. ^ Twitter, Franklez - "The Bestiarum changes context if read in the scope of the Greg Bear novels AND if you think about what a Forerunner archival catalog might consider a genuine or worthwhile human, and from where and whom it might gather that information. Funny, this number came up again recently."
