Thorn was originally the fourth member of Osiris

Instead of Buck.

343 made a good decision.

Yeah. Now when Locke dies in H5 Thorne will join FT Osiris and Buck will lead.

I second this, he is already a proven leader.

Damn. now that’s a bold statement. That would be an interesting plot twist. I just can’t imagine they would invest so much into this character just to kill him off in Halo 5 Guardians.

It wouldn’t have made sense for thorne to be in osiris, wasn’t he the leader of majestic? They all seem to be alive and somewhat functional.

The real question is where is Crimson?

You never know. Any character could die and be replaced with a different spartan at any point in the game. I hope know one dies, next game sure but not in their first game.

That isn’t happening. You don’t introduce a new character ( a playable character at that) and kill him off in the very game you introduced him. Everyone on Osiris should be safe, but the one that’s certainly safe is Locke.

I am glad we got Buck instead.

Buck was the leader of Alpha-9. Majestic could have been disbanded just like Alpha-9 was in New Blood.

Even in the cinematic it looked as though they were displaying the differences in leadership styles.
Buck is all about camaraderie and paling around while Locke is all about respecting the chain of command and withholding any fraternizing from his subordinates so they’ll work for his affections and follow orders to the letter. Locke’s leadership style of not getting too close makes sense knowing what happened in Nightfall, and is quite the contrast to Buck’s “friends first, soldiers second” style. The whole “beer” exchange in the condor really highlighted this.

Well, if 343 is cooking up a surprise plot twist by killing off Chief’s antagonist that would make you the perfect mark.

Killing Locke off in the very same game he was introduced isn’t a plot twist. It’s simply flat out stupid. Halo isn’t Game of Thrones. You don’t kill off critical characters seconds after bringing him/her into the universe, especially after all the build up for them.

I see Locke as Ahab, Chief his white whale. When it comes time to finish the job the rest of FTO will mutiny and Locke’s obsession will end up costing him his life. Just my theory.
And I don’t think it’s odd to kill off a character in the game that introduces him (especially when that character is the antagonist). I think it’s more odd to introduce an antagonist but instead of defeating him in the game our hero defeats him in a comic book that comes out after the game.

I don’t think that Locke is the antagonist.

  1. Locke has no obsession. He simply follows orders and does his job. And yes, his team is going to mutiny in a game that centers around a 4 player squad based gameplay system. Sigh
  2. Locke isn’t an antagnoist. 343 has flat out stated that.

Was the Arbiter killed in his first game? No, and the Arbiter WAS an antagnoist. Locke certainly won’t be either. I’m 100% sure about that. You don’t kill off main characters you’ve spent who knows how long creating and building up in just one game.

Maybe not, but who is? Jul? Halsey?

Maybe the Warden Eternal or the Didactic.

The Guardians? The Didact? Mendicant Bias? There’s a number of possibilities. I’m pretty certain it’s not Locke though nor would it make any sense for it to be him. He’s not out to kill Chief and Blue Team. He’s sent after them to bring them home.

Huh.
