Contributory Info: Master Chief
On a website that advertises Halo 3 action figures, I found a biography of Halo’s Master Chief. It reads:
“The Master Chief is among the most apparent symbols from the Halo series and the game world. First fashioned by Marcus Lehto, Rob McLees, and Shi Kai Wang, the character is a lofty and anonymous cybernetically heightened supersoldier; he’s never shown without his green armor or helmet. Downes made his persona of the Chief from a character description that asked for a Clint Eastwood-type character of few words.
“In the storyline, he’s a SPARTAN-II Commando of the UNSC Naval Special Warfare Command who’s got almost thirty years of active duty. Master Chief is among the most decorated soldiers in the United Nations Space Command and has attained every notable medal in the UNSC excluding the Prisoner of War Medallion.”
