I’m not a console gamer, so my knowledge of the Halo saga is sketchy and predominantly of the impression it’s about a manly super-soldier dude and his sexy lady AI sidekick, and that the developers didn’t get around to adding any female spartans until quite late in the franchise.
This is a story about one of them.
“the developers didn’t get around to adding any female spartans until quite late in the franchise”
Ha, no… In The Fall of Reach, the very first piece of Halo media released exactly 12 years ago as of yesterday, there are a large number of female Spartan-IIs who have extremely well defined characters and are total badasses.
Kelly is the fastest Spartan-II, she can run up to 40MPH. Linda hangs upside down in the middle of a Covenant ship, holds a sniper rifle with one hand and kills 7 Banshee pilots through a small hole in their vehicles. Maria tested out the MJOLNIR Mark VI armour before John received it in Halo 2. Sheila went down fighting an army of Covenant to protect Doctor Halsey. Grace was a master of explosives. Adriana is still out there somewhere with the rest of Grey Team. Alice takes on an army of Sangheili Honour Guards with the other two Spartans of Red Team in Halo Wars, same with Black One and the rest of her team.
That’s just the Spartan-IIs. For the IIIs, you’ve got Olivia, Holly, Lucy, Kat, and Jane. There have been plenty of female Spartans ever since the inception of the series, Bungie simply failed to implement them in the games.
Reblogging for the cool informative commentary.
>implying halo universe doesn’t have strong women just because 12 year old boys flood the multiplayer mode and are misogynistic.
LEL. Fun fact: hardly anyone who falls into that group of GO BACK TO THE KITCHEN multiplayers actually plays the campaign.
I get so frustrated with ppl not giving halo a chance cos little boys are dicks. :(
