At the beginning of Halo 4, Cortana awakens Master Chief from cryo-sleep in the midst of the wreckage of Forward Unto Dawn, the UNSC space vessel that was torn apart at the end of Halo 3. The relationship between Cortana and Master Chief has been highlighted by reviewers as one of the most important parts of the Halo games' story. She's as important to him as Blue Team and Halsey.

[36][37] According to C. J. Cowan, Bungie's director of cinematics, the studio used the character here to give story clues without actually revealing the story. Twenty flash cloned brains were created, but only two survived; one of the two survivors was used to create Cortana. I don't think it's ever been verbalized exactly, either by the narrator or the Chief. The character was the inspiration for Microsoft's intelligent personal assistant of the same name. Granted an infinite life span by the Domain, Cortana believes that she and other AI (the "Created") should enforce peace through the galaxy.

[30], For years after the first game was released Taylor remained distanced from the character. Cortana activates a distress beacon, but she knows that years could pass before rescue comes. [45] IGN noted that Cortana toys are lacking among Halo's merchandising. Cortana was the first real non-Spartan he formed an emotional attachment with, through their shared experience on Halo, defending Earth, fighting on Delta Halo and then him rescuing her from High Charity. As others have explained they were friends. [18] Cortana's name is a variant of Curtana, the sword used by the legendary Ogier the Dane, just as the titular AI character of Bungie's previous game Marathon 2: Durandal is named after the legendary sword Durendal. That's a big bond in which friendships can be forged. Cortana, Chief and human forces travel to another Halo ring, Delta Halo, where Master Chief and Cortana encounter the Flood intelligence Gravemind. And in a large sense, Cortana is an extension of him, I believe. [12] She is also a main character in "Human Weakness", a short story written by Karen Traviss for the Halo Evolutions anthology that details Cortana's time in the clutches of the Gravemind. As for how he acted. If they sent someone else after them he'd go anyway and would either try to reason with them (like he did Cortana) or deal with them because they're his family.

So, in your spare time you can actually talk to Cortana and below I am sharing 350+ funny Cortana questions and commands to make your conversation with this Windows Virtual Personal Assistant more interesting. In Halo: The Fall of Reach, Cortana is described as slender, with close-cropped hair and a skin hue that varies from navy blue to lavender, depending on her mood. During their first training course, she helped the Master Chief slap a missile out of the air after helping him make his way through a group of Marines, an anti-tank minefield, and a bunch of other deadly obstacles to test their combat effectiveness. 343 Industries decided to explain her established appearance as a reflection of her personality; "So one of the reasons she [appears as she does] is to attract and demand attention. She has relationships with a few characters in the series. Cortana has been recognized for her believability and character depth as well as her sex appeal. ...if he was just going to risk his life saving her later?

The short version is, she was with him through a lot of shit, and in a very intimate way. There are a couple of items on this list that describe how Cortana, as well … I think John became close with Cortana as she is an AI clone of Halsey, who he sees as his mother.

Afterward, she plants incriminating evidence in the files of Colonel Ackerson, the operative who nearly killed both of them, as revenge.

The Gravemind sends Chief and Cortana to the Covenant city-ship of High Charity to stop the Covenant from activating Halo; Cortana infiltrates High Charity's computer systems to assist Chief, ultimately staying behind to destroy the city and Halo should Master Chief fail in his mission to stop the Covenant leadership. Inserted into Halo's Control Room, Cortana looks for a way to use Halo as a weapon against the Covenant, but realizes that the ring serves as a prison for the parasitic Flood; activating Halo would mean destroying all sentient life in the galaxy to prevent the Flood's spread. FUN FACT: Cortana is also the name of a video game character in Microsoft’s popular Halo gaming franchise. [71] Complex's review praised the use of motion capture for Cortana, as they were given "new life" and new depth from the technology and performance. "And I've sort of fallen for Cortana as far as characters go. Cortana is said to resemble Halsey, with a similar attitude "unchecked by military and social protocol". When the Covenant attack and overwhelm the human planet Reach, Cortana plots a course for the human ship Pillar of Autumn derived on coordinates found in an ancient alien artifact. IGN called Halo 4 "really Cortana's story", as saving the galaxy is of lesser importance to the Master Chief than saving Cortana, and Cortana's humanity is ultimately the game's focus. Cortana was created using a flash cloned copy of Dr. Catherine Halsey's brain. Cortana begins using ancient Forerunner constructs known as Guardians to enforce the Created's will throughout the galaxy. Cortana sends a message to the Master Chief on Earth through a Flood-infected ship, revealing that she has a solution to the Flood threat. It's only natural that they would start forming a very close bond with each other all through those challenging ordeals that tested them, physically, emotionally, and mentally. The strategic use of cryptic messages in a publicity campaign was repeated in I Love Bees, a promotion for Halo 2. John and Cortana bonded over the test of AI integration with Mark V armor. The accent was dropped, but British colloquialisms remained in the character's dialogue. Cortana defends the ship from the Covenant until she is given to the supersoldier Master C… [60] Feminist critic Anita Sarkeesian argues that Cortana had gotten "more and more sexualized in every new installment";[61] 1UP.com noted that as Cortana's sanity waned in the video games, her clothing appeared to decrease as well. [64], Mike Rougeau of Complex noted that Halo 3 balanced a large conflict with a more personal one—that while the galaxy was imperiled by aliens, "more important to fans was the rescue of Cortana. [11], In Halo 3, Cortana appears to the player in broken transmissions. Master Chief reunites with “Good” Cortana and, with the help of Mendicant, rebels, and UNSC forces, they take out the Gravemind. Furthermore, Mendicant may or may not know of a cure for the Flood. [46] Deborah Harrison, one of Cortana's 'personality designers', met with 343 Industries and added more confidence to the personality. I also understand that they've been together for a lot of Chief's career but I don't see why he'd react the ways he did. After it was done Master Chief stepped in and became a … Cortana explains she survived the destruction of the Didact's ship and her own rampancy by entering the Domain, an ancient repository of knowledge. For more Easter eggs, ask Cortana to tell you about various elements of … What Cortana is talking about in Halo 3 is the scene in The Fall of Reach where she is selecting "her" Spartan for Operation: RED FLAG, which she was made for, the Pillar of Autumn retrofitted for (and being stationed at Reach for), and why the Master Chief was on the Autumn for (you think they just keep spartans around for nothin'? But it was a powerful relationship that left its impact on him. That's bound to drive people (or supersoldiers and human-like machines) together. I think Chief sees Cortana as not just a close friend and battle partner, but in a sense, a mother figure. [19] Franchise development coordinator Frank O'Connor commented that Cortana is not nude, as a digital representation has no clothes or privates. [30][31] Taylor was a college acquaintance of Joseph Staten, and he recommended her as a possible voice for Cortana to audio director Martin O'Donnell. As Master Chief prepares to go into cryonic sleep to await rescue, Cortana confides to him that she will miss him. He didn't have the same closeness with Johnson, who he still respected, and Miranda was a superior officer. By using our Services or clicking I agree, you agree to our use of cookies. On the Forerunner installation known as the Ark, the Master Chief travels through the ruins of High Charity to rescue Cortana from the Gravemind's clutches. Dr. Halsey allows Cortana to choose which SPARTAN-II soldier to accompany on an upcoming mission; Cortana picks the Master Chief, whom she believes is her best match. [68][69][70] Justin Clouse wrote that the interactions between Chief and Cortana as the latter loses her hold on sanity were "perhaps the best it's ever been". She was told by Halsey to choose a partner out of the Spartan IIs and chose the Master Chief. DISCOVERED: A tiny Master Chief in your Xbox One S (Image: IFIXIT) This strange Cortana news also comes after it was discovered last week that the new Xbox One S is hiding a small Master Chief logo INSIDE the new Xbox consoles. Turn Off Your Wireless. But in … I get that Cortana is basically part of Dr. Halsey, and that Halsey was directly responsible for how Chief ended up, but I figured that Chief would be more reactive to losing Halsey at any point rather than Cortana. She'd be very regal, very “powerful high queen." Halo 5 was one of the few Halo games where you see Chief actually showing emotions. Very obviously different than she was," writer Brian Reed recalled. Cortana's role grew from pure gameplay considerations to serving as a way of characterizing and humanizing the Master Chief, and in subsequent games the Chief-Cortana relationship became a focus of characterization. She also briefly appears in the prequel Halo: Reach, as well as in several of the franchise's novels, comics, and merchandise. Cortana is a virtual assistant developed by Microsoft, which uses the Bing search engine to perform tasks such as setting reminders and answering questions for the user.. Cortana is currently available in English, Portuguese, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, and Japanese language editions, depending on the software platform and region in which it is used. I know there's Halsey for that, but Cortana is the one who offers him emotional support when he needs it. Over the course of the game, Cortana begins displaying aberrant glitches and behavior; Cortana reveals that she is suffering from rampancy as she approaches the end of her seven-year lifespan. [31] She felt that portraying Cortana was occasionally challenging because the character lacks a physical form. [10], At the beginning of Halo 4 Cortana wakes the Chief as Forward Unto Dawn drifts towards a Forerunner installation called Requiem. The character's first action figure was a seven-inch (178 mm) miniature released as part of the Halo: Combat Evolved series of action figures. If one of Blue Team had say gone rogue and started killing people I guarantee you Chief would handle it. Cortana's survival is revealed in Halo 5, when she calls Master Chief and his fellow Spartans of Blue Team to the Forerunner world Genesis. When he first received her on Reach he viewed her as "a weapon to destroy the Covenant"...and then John saw Reach (the closest thing the Spartan-IIs have a home) fall, fought his way across a galaxy destroying superweapon against an alien hegemony and horrifying parasite. "[73] Similarly, Patrick Dane of Bleeding Cool defended the game's divisive campaign and Cortana's turn to antagonist as an "inspired choice", driving a wedge between the most important character relationship in the games. [21] Taylor recalled that a key directive from Bungie about the character was that she not come off as nagging, despite her role as the player's guide and aid. Master chief on the other hand did not choose to join the military. I think he will get over his grief of her becoming the villain and know that she needs to be taken down. In the story, she is instrumental in preventing the activation of the Halo installations, which would have destroyed all sentient life in the galaxy. Creative director Josh Holmes noted that Cortana was in ways more human than Master Chief, and the idea that Chief would grapple with his humanity at the same time he was losing Cortana spoke to him. [14][15], Cortana was developed to provide Combat Evolved with a way of guiding players while keeping missions open-ended, and avoiding players feeling they were being herded through the game. "[65] While Cortana's role was greatly expanded in the game, Stuff.co.nz noted that the character "has inexplicably had a sexy makeover". Ask Cortana for Xbox One: Do You Love Master Chief? Chief's actions and reactions to Cortana's rampancy and his personal quest to save her after she finally goes completely nuts really gave Chief's character some new facets that nobody had really seen before. The neural pathways of the cloned brain were scanned and copied through a process called Cognitive Impression Modeling. No redemption, just having to deal with the rabid dog/AI Warlord that she is now. [51][52][53] Tom's Hardware named the character one of the 50 greatest female characters for the character's determination and fearlessness, which meshed perfectly with the game's protagonist. I've … [65], David Their wrote that the choice for Cortana to return in Halo 5 and turn her into an antagonist provided the game "with a well earned sense of drive"[72] and that her appearance in Halo 5 gave players another side of the character to see. [10], In Halo 2, a Covenant fleet arrives above Earth, and Cortana takes control of an orbital coilgun to repel the invaders. Now that's all fine and dandy but she didn't choose Master Chief according to Reach, she chose Noble 6, seeing as how Noble 6 didn't get on Pillar of Autumn and Master Chief just so happened to be there (by sheer coincidence) and Master Chief being the only Spartan on Pillar of Autumn she had no choice but to be his partner AI. Cortana helps direct human survivors scattered across the ring and assists the Master Chief in his missions. After 3 long days straight of killing each other's Army men, it was very fun, but not fun enough. [54] Den of Geek's Megan Crouse called Cortana one of the Halo series' most important characters, and her relationship with her mother figure Halsey a relationship that was under-appreciated in much of the franchise. Cortana defends the ship from the Covenant until she is given to the supersoldier Master Chief to prevent her from falling into enemy hands. Combined with the events the duo survive, that relationship got incredibly strong - moreover their experience was largely unique adding further gravitas to it. The fragment was successfully reunited with Cortana's main self on Pillar of Autumn before the ship escapes the planet, leading to the events of Combat Evolved. John was born in 2511 and lived with his mother and father in Elysium city on the colony world of Eridanus II. She attended only one fan convention in six years after the release of Halo: Combat Evolved,[33] and never saw many of the finished cutscenes with the character until a Halo 3 launch party.

", "Microsoft unveils Halo's Cortana as Siri-style Windows Phone digital assistant", "This is Cortana, Microsoft's answer to Siri", "Microsoft unveils Cortana for Windows 10", "Cortana: Now available where and when you need her, no matter what smartphone you choose", "Thanks Buddy! High Charity is assimilated by the Flood, and Cortana is left behind. Describing her previous appearance as soft and "deceptively vulnerable", 343 Industries took the story opportunity provided to change her look to reflect her new role as self-declared ruler of the galaxy. Voiced by Jen Taylor, she appears in Halo: Combat Evolved and its sequels, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 4, and Halo 5: Guardians. [62] Time's Matt Peckham described Cortana's character as a controversial figure, with a tension between being well-rounded character and being trapped as "[an] adolescent male's fantasy notion of a Campbellian hero figure," and that this tension had increased commensurately with the game series' graphical fidelity. And she does it to put people off so that they're on their guard when talking to her and she has the upper hand in those conversations," he explained. I'd say he looked at her as family as much as Blue Team is. Examples include things like his hands shaking, and his actions definitely show that he's extremely affected by her rampancy. Cookies help us deliver our Services. No, really, she does—though I think Master Chief may take issue with Cortana's interpretation of the events. [38], Cortana is featured in a variety of Halo merchandise. Boromir's desire to protect Gondor and Master Chief's desire to protect humanity are not equivalent. They only had a few months together, not counting the time he spent in cryo-sleep. [39] In an interview, McLees noted that the first action figure was supposed to convey an older appearance than was depicted in the games. The time they went through was constant and intimate. Though other final gender-neutral names for the final product were considered, positive developer and fan response to the leaked codename led to it becoming permanent. Chief protects her, Cortana protects him - it's a mutual relationship, one that grew stronger beyond just strict professionalism, and we see all that culminate in Halo 4 (the only game that serves as a real tribute to their relationship). [25] Early in production, concept artists created a variety of "crazy ideas" and explorations for how Cortana might look. Cortana speaks with a smooth female voice, and projects a holographic image of herself as a woman. I also understand that they've been together for a lot of Chief's career but I don't see why he'd react the ways he did. Not long after Arbiter and Chief stopped Chaos Theosis from shutting down the OMN, Cortana appeared along with Greg in a package that was delivered to Jon's house. As with all Spartans, John was regarded by the Covenant as a "Demon". [21] Holmes' mother was diagnosed with dementia during development, and his real-life struggles informed the characterization of Cortana's descent into rampancy and the Chief-Cortana relationship. [13] Cortana also appears in the novelization of Combat Evolved, Halo: The Flood, and the following novels Halo: First Strike and Halo: Ghosts of Onyx, as well as the animated series Halo Legends and live-action television series Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn. Master Chief was the Green Nation, and the Arbiter was the Tan Republic, and Cortana was the Blue French People. [31], Bungie introduced the Halo series publicly in 1999 by sending the Cortana Letters, a series of cryptic email messages, to the maintainer of marathon.bungie.org, a fan site for one of Bungie's previous series, the Marathon Trilogy. They were always having to rely on each other for 6 months straight of pure combat where you need to trust or you die. After receiving those gruelling augmentations, Master Chief spent some of his recovery time on board the UNSC Atlas in… The fragment contains crucial information gleaned from a Forerunner artifact. And she left him with a greater awareness of himself as a human being, someone with emotions and desires that aren't just "defend humanity.". Then went extra-galactic, and fought both factions again. Cortana herself chose Master Chief as her “partner”. "In the first draft of the ending she was going to wear a flowing gown, have long hair, etc. However, John specifically was known as "the Demon", an epithet he earned after the destruction of Installation 04, though allied Sa… [2] She speaks most of the first game's dialogue,[3] and serves as a talkative foil for the quieter Master Chief, as well as a way of relaying information and objectives to the player. [25] The character's motion capture was performed by Mackenzie Mason. Game developer Bungie first introduced Cortana—and Halo—through the Cortana Letters, emails sent during Combat Evolved's production in 1999.
