Halo became the latest video game to receive a live-action adaptation. games like sonic the hedgehog, mortal combatand Detective Pikachu have been translated for the big screen, but Halo became an original series on Paramount+. The series was finally able to take off after many years of development purgatory. He introduced fans to a new take on the Halo universe, taking them back to the days of war between humans and alliances.
Paramount has announced that it has already renewed the series for a second season. the Halo The universe is huge, full of potential and incredible storytelling opportunities. While Paramount Halo The series is set in a separate continuity from the games, they still have over 20 years of video game characters and stories to pull from. As Master Chief says at the end of Halo: Advanced Combat, “We’ve just started.” Here are some of the characters we want to see as the show progresses.
7 Edward Buck
This one is a no-brainer. Gunnery Sergeant Edward Buck was an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper during the Human-Covenant War, eventually leading ODST Squad Alpha-Nine. Appearing in Halo 3: ODST, Halo: scopeafter that Halo 5: Guardiansreintroduced as Spartan-IV, Buck has always been a fan favorite character. His bravery, his heroism, his sense of humor and his charm make him one of the greatest characters in the Halo franchise. the Halo The TV series has already allowed games’ Jen Taylor to reprise her role as Cortana. Nathan Fillion could be the next to follow suit and become part of the franchise’s live-action future. Fillion is a very busy man who works in Hollywood, but nothing obliges him to be a main character of the series.
6 Gabriel Thorn
Those who have played Spartan Ops in Halo 4 will know the Spartan by the name of Gabriel Thorne. He was originally supposed to play a major role in the future of the franchise before scheduling conflicts arose with actor Ethan Peck. As a result, Thorne was replaced by Buck in the follow-up Halo 5: Guardians. Peck is the perfect choice to play Spartan Thorne in live-action, and has already appeared in another big-budget sci-fi series on Paramount+: he played a young Spock on Star Trek: Discovery. from Paramount Halo The series has yet to introduce the Spartan-IV program and the UNSC Infinity, but the series could focus on Thorne before he was a Spartan when he served in the UNSC military.
5 Veronique Dare
from Paramount Halo has already begun to explore shades of gray within ONI. They were never an organization that kept their hands clean, but there were always heroes inside. One of the most important figures in the Office of Naval Intelligence was Captain Veronica Ann Dare. She was an intelligence officer in ONI Section 1 and took command of Team Alpha-Nine in Halo 3: ODST. Dare took her job very seriously, but she also fell in love with Edward Buck and eventually married him. There are plenty of opportunities for Dare to interact with the main characters or someone like Admiral Parangosky. Lately, Halo fans would love to see Dare’s Recon helmet in live-action.
4 343 Guilty Spark
343 Industries from Microsoft, the developer of Halo, was named after the character 343 Guilty Spark. Originally known as Chakas, referred to as “the Oracle” by the Covenant, and referred to simply as “the Monitor” by the UNSC, 343 Guilty Spark was the first Monitor to appear in the franchise. Guilty Spark was a highly intelligent AI tasked with maintaining Installation 04, the first Halo ring the Master Chief and Cortana set foot on. Although initially appearing friendly with UNSC forces, 343 Guilty Spark had its own hidden agenda. This character has too much personality and is too important to the franchise not to appear on the show.
3 Thel’ Vadam
Arbiter was a title held by several Sangheili (elite) throughout the game franchise. But the one most associated with the Arbiter title was Thel ‘Vadam. After being punished for failing to prevent the destruction of a Halo Ring, Thel’ Vadam was tasked with eliminating those who rebelled against the Covenant. The mission placed the Arbiter on a collision course with 343 Guilty Spark and the Master Chief in Halo 2. However, the Arbiter was eventually betrayed by the people he served and was nearly killed. As a result, Thel’ Vadam was forced to question what he believed in and what he stood for. Explore this in the Halo the television series would provide an effective parallel with the Master Chief reflecting on his role within the UNSC.
2 The Gravemind
The Halo Rings were designed by the Forerunners to help stop the threat of the Parasitic Flood. The Covenant were the main antagonists but from the beginning of the franchise, the Floods were the ultimate enemy. They were responsible for building and activating the franchise’s titular super weapon. At the head of the entire Flood species was the Gravemind, a villain who played a leading role in Halo 2, Halo 2: Anniversaryand Halo 3. He represented the shared consciousness of the Flood and sought to consume it all. The Covenant forces failed to stop the Flood from taking over High Charity. The Gravemind has the potential to inject Paramount’s Halo series with welcome horror and raise the stakes considerably.
Master Chief worked alongside Silver Team in the television series. However, in the novels he was a member of another Spartan-II unit called Blue Team. One of the original members of Blue Team was the amazing Kelly-087. She was recognized as the fastest Spartan, maintaining this position even when not using her MJOLNIR armor. Like the Master Chief, Kelly was taken from her parents and conscripted as a child. During her training and service with John-117, she developed a close friendship with the Master Chief. Silver Team has largely replaced the blue team in the TV series, but Blue Team still exists in the show’s “Silver” timeline. Kelly has previously appeared in the live web series, Halo 4: Onward To Dawnand fans would appreciate seeing a new incarnation of the character.
Will Halo be Paramount+’s biggest hit?
