Timeline

100,000 B.C.E. to 2553 C.E.

Origins is one of the seven short films comprising the anime adaptation of the Halo universe, Halo Legends [2][3]. Origins is an expansive history of the 100,000 year long franchise timeline, comprised of two parts. The story is told through the eyes of Cortana[4]and the episode begins after the events of Halo 3.

Summary

Part 1

As Cortana watches over John-117, currently in cryo hibernation, she begins to experience the effects of rampancy, unable to key together who she is with the massive input of information in her databanks. She then begins recounting the history of the galaxy.

Over 100,000 years ago, there was once a great civilization called the Forerunners. However, their empire was invaded by a parasite called the Flood. Initially, the Forerunners treated the Flood as an infestation, until it was too late. The more Forerunners assimilated by the Flood, the more intelligent the Flood became. Soon, open war was on the rise. The Forerunners were confident that their valor and technology would stop the Flood. Unfortunately, the parasite had spread too far across their empire. On the verge of defeat, the Forerunners made one last ditch attempt to eradicate the Flood from the galaxy. They constructed the seven Halo rings and used the Ark to send the rings to different parts in the galaxy. The seven rings would destroy all sentient life and Flood biomass. Once the rings were in place, the effects of the rings cleansed the galaxy of all life, including Flood, in an instant.

With their enemy defeated, the Forerunners then began to repopulate the galaxy with various alien lifeforms that had been indexed, storing DNA samples, embryos and live specimens. These lifeforms were then returned to their home planets.

Part 2

The humans, still fresh from their encounter with the Forerunners, continue on with their civilizations. Inevitably though, much to Cortana's dismay, they fight amongst themselves. Various moments in Humanity's history, such as the invention of penicilin, the bombing of Hiroshima, and the launch of Sputnik and the International Space Station are are shown briefly.

Things are all changed when Dr. Wallace Fukijiwa and Dr. Tobias Fleming Shaw invent the Shaw-Fujikawa Translight Engine, allowing Humanity to move across star systems. Colony ships, such as those of the Phoenix-class, are sent throughout the Orion arm of the milky way, settling on suitable planets. Even after finding new worlds to satisfy their greed with however, Insurrection ensues, forcing mankind to once more fight among themselves.

In 2525 though, Humanity is unified against a single threat, for the first time in their history. The Covenant stumble upon UNSC controlled space, and proceed to lay waste to it.

Trivia

  • Origins is the first event in the Halo franchise to depict the Forerunner species figure, though they were wearing Combat Skin and their true features were never shown.
  • Origins is the first event to depict life on the home planets of the Unggoy, Jiralhanae, and Kig-yar.
  • At one point in the animation, during the section showing the Flood being wiped out by the Halo effect, a large Flood form is shown, on the Forerunner planet, attached to the top of the unused tiered structure design for New Mombasa first shown in the Halo 2 E3 Demo.
  • When the Halos enter the Portal created by the Ark it shows three of them materializing nearby the Jackal, Brute and Elite homeworlds, this cannot be the case as in the events of Halo: Combat Evolved Installation 04 is the first Halo discovered by the Covenant, if there were three Halos so close to the homeworlds of three Covenant races the Covenant would have discovered them a great deal of time before they even encountered the human race. It is possible that the Forerunners released the Jackals, Brutes and Elites onto planets different to those shown when the races first spot the Rings in order to ensure the Halos safety and secrecy, or else the Halo rings were moved elsewhere to their current locations.
