Didact/Librarian what? (Spoilers)

#11MVNeoPosted 12/7/2012 2:13:34 AM(edited)
I'm not going to say for sure, but it doesn't seem like Bornstellar will be the one who is in Halo 4. It'll be the more elder Didact, the one who wasn't as close to humans, and the one who was left treacherously on a Flood-infested planet. He's the extremist on the outside of Forerunner society now, thought to be dead at first, who is still waging a war on helpless humans in a fruitless fight against The Flood.

Basically the Halo you know and love is gone, replaced with a canon-contradicting storyline that is really pretty lame.

I think that this is really the only part that the Halo 4 story should have elaborated better. If you hadn't read the books, you wouldn't know that there's two diadects, so just going by the story alone that's told by the Halo 3 terminals and Halo 4 leaves you confused as hell.

The Didact in H4s hate for Humanity is the most compelling argument for him being Ur-Didact. Bornstellar was much more compassionate, and the Didact that activates the Array in the H3 terminals has this quality, refusing to use the rings untill the very end.

After watching all terminals and reading the wikis I'm still slightly confused

Didact was the one who fired the Halos right after defeating Mendicant Bias. But then he was imprisoned by the Librarian who should have died after the activation of the halos.

So how did he get imprisoned? And why did he fired the halo when he was against it in the first place?


You're confused because this game's story isn't good nor was it presented in a coherent fashion.

Yeah, the original Didact and his clone. Original (or Ur-) was previously executed in the books, but H4 has retconned it and had him imprisoned on Requiem instead.

Bornstellar, his clone, took his place in Forerunner society and was much less extreme, especially with regards to Humanity. He was the one who activated the Halo Array.


They retconned nothing, Ur-Didact was never killed the Master Builder decided to dump Ur on a Flood infested planet.

I'll go with this. I tried reading the books and they just bugged me. I hated the names, the basic sci fi, and lore they tried to add. It's not for me.

If you enjoy it, hey more power to you. But I'll pass.

Nothing is contradictory. Aside from the Halo: Reach/Fall of Reach but that was before 343i managed to get ahold of Halo. They own and oversee EVERYTHING that has to do with Halo, unlike Bungie who really didn't care that much. They've set the story line up to run as perfectly as it can. Don't blame them because you're ignorant.
