NOTE TO HALO FANS!: Yes He is a Forerunner! Please DEAL WITH IT! I designed them by using the concept art that the developers of Halo Wars used when they made Forerunners. Why they did I don't know I think they tried to put Forerunners in the game but scrapped it. In the concept they INDEED WERE Human. In Appearance and anatomy. Just because Halo 4 is almost out and leaks of Forerunners are seen everywhere doesn't mean I'm going to change MY DESIGNS for your cannon. I tried keeping it cannon but I gave up because it keeps freaking changing. And I really don't think a forerunner looks like an ugly hairless looking brute. Sorry. I'm not giving them ugly ogre faces. If you have a problem then that is your problem not mine. I already decided their appearance for my project WAY before Halo 4 was being made.
doesn't he look like a Brute? That's what I thought he was haha XD
And I didn't either, I looked up and researched on Forerunners after Halo 3 and came a crossed the developers of Halo Wars' concept art of Forerunners. They look exactly human in their concept except their hair was abnormal colors along with their eyes. So that's what I have been using for my forerunners.
In response to Sniperwolf, no there are not human. They have profuse fur on their extremities which humans don't have. They never said they looked exactly like humans, they just resembled them to a /degree/. Warrior servants and Prometheans like the Didact were always giants and looking like brutes is not out of the concept as they are supposed to be heavily muscled, 4 meter tall juggernauts that can easily crush a human skull with their hand. They did confront the humans of that era which were eventually degenerated back to the Stone Age because of alleged punishment for assaulted a Forerunner world when in reality they attempted to flee from the Flood.
I respect Ace's interpretation of the Forerunner, and I'm not gonna bug her for it as it was originally just a concept prior to Halo 4's info leaks, but I just figured I should point it out to the conversation at hand.
Thank you for not trying to make me go to cannon. I am disappointed with Halo 4's idea of a forerunner though. I wasn't expecting an ugly ape looking...thing. I thought it was a brute XD But I'm sticking with my designs I already have down. I love forerunners and the history I just don't like they're design after I had used the Halo War's forerunner concept art.
If you read any of the books that have to do with forerunners they are human there too, just with armor that keeps them alive and sleepless forever. This would be the way they looked but ive only seen the Halo Legends and Halo Anniversary terminal versions so this armors new to me
