Mendicant Bias
Welcome to The Archive Installation , a community of Lore Theorist who have a deep love for the space-opera Halo!   The Halo Archive was created in summer 2009 by user Grey101 long known as " Mendicant Bias" as a safe have for those to have in-depth Halo conversations without worry of bans from spoilers,flaming, or mindless spamming.  We had a long run with the Metarchs Offensive Bias, Cognitive Bias,Anton and Mario Persico helping to shape the community with Gob, Adv Jones being figure heads of the community over the last few years with mods helping in kind.

Upon returning as an admin with the creation of our forums we intend remain a known hub of conspiracy and intelligence within the Halo community for another decade to come!

Favorite part of the lore?  The Forerunner saga was such a fantastic series done by Greg Bear possibly closest Halo would ever get to Ian Banks' level of thrill,adventure, and social-political work of " The Culture " series.
Favorite races? Lekgolo, Ancient Humans, Forerunner.
Favorite Characters? Bornstellar, Mendicant Bias, Chakas, Jun
Gamertag: I Mendicantbias


What is your endgame for the Haloverse?  Hopefully there is point where we can explore the galaxy past orion's arm uncovering new races and struggles. I'd be content of that era being similar to Stargate Universe.


What do you like about the Archive? All the skills learned to create and maintain such an expansive community knowing it's directly impacted various people who i'll never meet.

Hobbies: Video Games (of course), Audio, Music


Favorite part of the lore? This is a tough one. The Spartan program is always fascinating, but if I had to go with something else, I'd say the many political factions and twists in Humanity and even The Covenant. 


Favorite Species? Gotta be Brutes. Tons of potential there.

Favorite Characters? This is another hard one. Too many great characters over the years and eras for me to really narrow it down to a handful. 

What do I like about the Archive? Well, I've been a part of The Archive since 2014, in 2015 I became a community manager, and along the way that somehow morphed into me becoming an Admin. I like that I've been able to learn so much along the way, and that I've had the opportunity to help people make this place their home.
