Master Cheif is a fictional character featured in the video games
Halo: Combat Evolved
and Halo 2, and the novels
Halo: The Fall of Reach, Halo: The Flood, and Halo: First Strike.
The Master Cheif is the only person that
can save earth along with
the help of the last marines
;genetically and cybernetically augmented warrior designed to put down
rebels and insurgents within the United Nations Space Command.
7' tall and weighs approximately 1,000 pounds in full battle armor. He is approximately forty-one years old at the time of the events of Halo: Combat Evolved
(2552). Between Halo: Combat Evolved
and Halo 2, the Chief's armor is upgraded from MJOLNIR Mark V to Mark VI. Both iterations of the armor include
a helmet with
reflective visor so the face of the Chief is never seen: in spite
he is seen removing his helmet once
in each game, the camera
view always conceals the Master Chief's face from the viewers. Master Chief is voiced by Steve Downes in both Halo: Combat Evolved
and Halo 2.
Marine to Master Cheif: "We called
for reinforcments, but we did'nt expect A Spartan!"
