Meet Reach’s Noble Team Members
So who is this Noble Team? They are the Spartan soldiers who were introduced to the Halo Universe with the first official Halo Reach Trailer in mid December 2009.
The Noble team were first featured with the release of the Halo Reach Logo (see top of this page for an example) Spartans where silouetted against the yellow / orange planet (Reach). With the release of the trailer, Bungie have update the image to include more detailed spartans, including a bit of colour to help identify the team.
The Halo Noble Team features spartans:
- Grenadier- Emile 239
- Unidentified Lieutenant (Lone Wolf)
- Sniper -Jun 266
Carter 259 and Kat 320 are the only members of their original squad, the rest are obviously replacements.
Halo Fans who are way more onto it than me, have reasoned that Noble Team is one of the first Halo canon appearances, along with Yasmine Zaman, of the SPARTAN-II Program’s Class-II, or perhaps of the SPARTAN-III Program.
The Lieutenant is fast becoming known as the Lone Wolf, because in the trailer for the VGA awards, the Commander Carter tells him that he doesn’t want any lone wolf business. Indeed, in the trailer, a Spartan says “Didn’t think anyone survived Pegasi, sir.”
He says this after noticing “Lone-Wolf”. Commander Carter-259 seems to confirm this by telling Jorge-052, “Spartans never die, Jorge. They’re just missing in action.”
Either way, in the weeks coming before the release of Halo Reach we are sure to learn more about the Spartans of the Noble Team!
As I’ve noted elsewhere in this blog, the fact were are being shown these particular Spartans strongly hints that the Spartans featured in the novel The Fall of Reach are not going to be the heroes of the Reach game and that Noble Team will be. Update: Correct according to the leak
As for game play, many fans are talking/speculating about a ‘classed based’ style approach to the Campaign of the Reach game. E.g. You can play as the Snpier or Jorge etc… I’m wondering if you play as the Lone Wolf while the others run around as part of the AI ala Arbiter in Halo 3. I’m also picking you get separated from Team Noble as well…..
Who’s your favourite Noble team member so far? I’m picking Emile, it’s him right?
