Has anyone else besides me seen it this way? Cortana is generally seen as the main protagonist in my eyes. Sure she doesn't accomplish what Master Chief did (she's an AI, how could she?), but she compensates as Master Chief's "brains", whereas he compensates as her "brawn" or "bodyguard". Along with that, Master Chief never confronts or battles the main antagonist, the Gravemind, directly, whereas he is Cortana's direct polar opposite it seems, always prodding her for information, interrogating her, torturing her. I definitely found myself more emotionally attached to the situation of Cortana than the Chief. To me Master Chief was a walking gun in Halo 3, whereas Cortana was most of the emotional trauma. Master Chief and the Arbiter seemed to me to be the dueteragonists of the trilogy. The "action" and the "explosives", with Johnson supplying the comic relief and 'human' element, and the various other UNSC characters (Hood, Keyes, Stacker, etc). TL;DR: After replaying Halo: Reach, it definitely emphasizes and emblazons Cortana as being "Humanity's last hope", with her notable couriers being Master Chief and Noble Six(...you). What are your thoughts on this theory?
