Halo 4 possible new "boss" (like gravemind)

The Didact

Biography
The Didact was a full-rate Promethean of the Warrior-Servant class in the Forerunner class system. He earned his fame in the Human-Forerunner War. After the War, the Forerunners began to research ways of stopping the flood. This lead to the invention of the Halos. The Didact was opposed to their use and was forced into exile by the Master Builder to a Cryptum. His Cryptum was placed on Earth by his wife, the Librarian. It is opened 1000 years later by a young Forerunner of the Builder class named Bornstellar Makes Eternal Lasting .
The Didact passes on his memories to Bornstellar and is later killed by the Master Builder on the San’Shyuum home world. Because of the transfer of memories, Bornstellar becomes the Didact. This revelation is made to him by the Librarian when he meets her on the Ark. From this point, the Didact begins to lead the Forerunner’s fleet against the flood.

During the Forerunner-Flood war, he was constantly trying to convince the Librarian to give up on her mission to save other sentient life from the Halos and return to him “Where it is safe”. His pleas, however, were unsuccessful, and the Librarian ended up destroying her own fleet, stranding herself on Earth to live out the rest of her days in a place she referred to as “Eden”.

Fate
The Didact’s eventual fate is unclear, whether or not he survived the activation or perished, as his location is not specified, be it on the Ark, Requiem , or one of the Halo Rings.
While the Server’s first episode seems to state that the Didact perished, Terminal 7 seems to contradict this, as the Didact describes going on the Forerunner’s “Great Journey” without the Librarian, carrying the “bitter record” of the Forerunner’s failure. Whether this describes an actual physical event and his survival, or a more ideological/religious concept involving the Forerunner’s concept of death and the afterlife that he is describing, is unclear.

Evidence
The Didact’s glyph appears at the end of the Halo 4 Trailer.

Does this mean no Warthog run at the end of Halo 4?

prob no warthog run :’(

The Didact was a good guy. All Mantle and stuff.

Yeah, he just draw his line. And say “Sorry, if you’re in the other side, you’re alone with the flood, good luck.”

Yes, a very good guy…

He almost put in jeopardy the Halo plan just because of his love for the Librarian.

And, like the Librarian said, with the Mantle he, unconsciously leave all the galaxy’s habitants helpless agains any enemy that could had pop in, like with the Flood.

Why in the flying heck would anyone want ANOTHER warthog run? Lets get some creativity.

How about a Hornet/Falcon run?

The symbol from the trailer is not the Didact’s, it connects to the outer ring, it’d most likely the Master Builder’s symbol.

Trollololololololollololololol

Is the thing the Didact feared was unleashed in Cryptum the gravemind?

> The symbol from the trailer is not the Didact’s, it connects to the outer ring, it’d most likely the Master Builder’s symbol.

no. it’s the didact’s. in it’s “unbound form” (quote frank o’conner). but he’s not the ancient evil.

> Is the thing the Didact feared was unleashed in Cryptum the gravemind?

there is no “the gravemind”, there’s graveminds. what escaped from the prison on Charum Hakor, was the Timeless One/Primordial, another type of flood (what exactly has yet to be revealed, but again: frank o’conner confirmed it is not a gravemind).
