Halo Cryptum ??

Not sure if this is the right fourm but…

"What the diadict couldnt understand- at the time of my mentoring- was why the libriarin choosen this moment to gather speicmen from the san shuyman…I Found the answer in the council records… 300 years before, the flood had returned to some forerunners planets being resettled after the fore runner human war in unexpected forms an places.

Not exactly word for word its on page 275 hardcover… To me, this doesn’t explain why the librian choose that time to return for the speicemns.

it is late an i ammm extermly tried but could someone shed some light on me…

The Flood were coming back at that time so she was pressed for time to get their specimen samples. If she waited, the San 'Shyuum could be lost to the Flood.
