What ARE Watchers and Knights?

When I first saw the Promethean Watcher and Knight, I thought they were robots, and I’m sure I’m not the first one to notice this, but it seems that something is “Piloting” them, like a mech. if you look here, you can see interactive images of the Knight and the Watcher. If you look at them closely, the Knight seems to have (Organic/Biological arms under its main arms, and if you look at the Watcher, it has 2 legs hanging down from its bottom, and it seems that the very top of it is a head.
I don’t know if I’m the only one who finds this weird, but it seems there are creatures controlling the Knights and Watchers. Does this mean anything?

I was under the impression that they were Promethian defense AI’s.

I’m sick of people calling them Prometheans. THEY ARE NOT PROMETHEANS. They are just defense AIs and I’m guessing they are also some importance to the Prometheans being for the fact the they have “Promethean” in their name.

Prometheans are FORUNNERS http://images.wikia.com/halo/images/d/d2/Forerunner23.png

Everyone that picture is just concept art. Not what the forerunners Actually look like.

That was actually in the CEA terminals.

I was simply calling them by what their names are, and I am fully aware they are not the true Prometheans, at least, what we know of. I was pointing out their “biological” parts, because in a Sparkcast, Frankie said crawlers are not organic, and didn’t comment on Knights or Watchers.

They are probably non-organic lifeforms created by the Prometheans (a sub-group of the Forerunners) to defend against the Flood.

Obviously you haven’t seen Halo:Legends.

That there is the only visual of a Forerunner in the Halo franchise so far

the crawlers are defensive AI’s as cortana say’s it when chief came into contact with them but she did say that the promethean knights were not organic from what i know organic means its not a living thing so i’m not sure what the situation is.
