THEORY: Is Halsey a Fucking Savage?

Halseyisasavage

Despite the fact that Doctor Catherine Halsey was more or less responsible for the survival of the human race during the Human-Covenant war, many characters in the Halo universe are fully  committed to an indiscriminate circlejerk against her. Whether that’s branding her a “war criminal,” defying direct orders from your captain to shoot her in the shoulder, or being a character from Kilo 5 and having every other line of your dialogue being some scorn against her, there’s a very formidable chance that you are a character with a serious hate boner for Halsey.

However, even though most of the hate against Halsey is a result of ONI propaganda and brainwashing, it may be that Halsey is simply an absolute savage.

The second cutscene in Halo 5: Gourdians, Halsey is observed relentlessly roasting Covenant Supreme Leader Jul ‘Mdama during the final moments before Jul is unceremoniously killed by Fireteam Osiris and written out of the story in the most shitty and insulting way possible. Jul’s ridiculous and poorly-written death aside, the sheer savagery of Halsey’s final conversation with him is not to be overlooked.

Jul: What is the problem?

Halsey: There are several. Would you like to discuss the finer points of casual reconciliation?

Not yet savage, but Halsey is preparing to roast.

Jul: More human sarcasm…

Halsey: So you have learned something from me, Jul.

Oh boy *wipes forehead* Halsey just implied Jul was a fool. The tension is building.

Jul: You claim to be able to access–

Halsey: –And I can. I did not, however, claim to be able to access it instantaneously.

Halsey has the audacity to interrupt Jul? Again, not savage, but the moment of truth is imminent.

Jul: The security situation is not stable. There is no time to dither. You will also accord me the respect befitting of the Didact’s Hand.

Halsey: Mmmm, seems your fingers are in open rebellion, Hand.

DID YOU READ THAT? Here it is again, in italics:

Jul: The security situation is not stable. There is no time to dither. You will also accord me the respect befitting of the Didact’s Hand.

Halsey: Mmmm, seems your fingers are in open rebellion, Hand.

Absolute savage. Halsey straight up roasts Jul, leaving only ashes and salt in her wake. And less than a minute later, Fireteam Osiris attacks and eliminates both Jul and his bodyguards. It’s almost as if Jul was put out of his misery, that his anticlimactic death was a kindness.

Halsey is a savage. That will be all.
