Is Master Chief a human or some sort of robot/alien?



  • In the Halo trilogy, Master Chiefs face is never shown. I think he's human at least but I'm not quite sure.

    I have searched online but nothing really answered my question. Does anyone know what he looks like or if he's even human? Or is he an elite/robot/cyborg? I know Dr.Halsey created or trained him as revealed at the end of the first season of spartan ops.

    Master Chief, Spartan 117, is human. His name is John (no last name is ever given). He was a citizen of the colonies that was kidnapped at age 6, and taken to train for the military (in secret). In his teen years, he received a series of injections that augmented his physical capabilities to above and beyond what any normal human would ever be able to do. Yet he, and all the other Spartans, remain human.

    So why not show his face? Well, that actually stems from how Bungie wanted to approach the character. Master Chief was always meant to be someone you could imagine yourself being. They never intended to reveal who Master Chief was, or show his face, because they felt it betrayed their fans ability to place themselves into the character. Now that 343 has taken over, though, we'll have to see where they go with things, and what they decide to do in the future.
