Before anyone asks, too, the Fidel Castro avatar is done in irony. I may be relatively liberal, but I'm not a communist or a totalitarian. Ah, but the look of sadness as he clutches his flag, the way atear almost seems to be trickling down his cheek as he thinks of the long gone glory days of the revolution...

The temporary alliance of the Master Chief and Arbiter with the Flood on The Covenant was brilliantly done.

- "When you speak of your heroes, of your Thermopylae, your Leonidas, your Spartans, where are the brave others? Where are the Phocians and the Locrians, who gave heir lives in the defence of their own towns? What of the Thespians, who stayed knowing of certain death to aid those Spartans? What of Demophilus? What of the thousands of courageous Persians who were slaughtered by the Greeks? Of Abrocomes and Hyperanthes, and Hydarnes, who fell fighting? Do they get no acknowledgement? Do they not deserve some part of the honour and glory that is rightfully theirs?"
