Story: Master chief, known as the Spartan super soldier and the last of his kind. He stands at a height of being 7-foot-tall, wearing outer green titanium alloy armor and to be known to as a legend in the UNSC ‘United Nations Space Command’ and threat to The Covenant that see Master Chief is more than just a soldier, he is a weapon to lead humanity to victory.
Creating: As a big fan of the franchise of the Halo series, Master Chief was a character of the gaming world I knew I had to take a photograph of and find a similar location from one of the games. When posing Master Chief in this preparing stance, I wanted to show theirs two weapons in the photo this being: Master Chief and his MA5B in his hands. With finding all the facts of Master Chief being raised into becoming a super soldier, I saw him more as man becoming a weapon that was capable to take on anything and when holding a weapon, he then becomes more dangerous. When picking the location for the photograph, I wanted to try and adapt one of my favorite missions from Halo 3 by finding a wooded area like in the first mission of the game called Tanzanian. So by using a wooded area to symbolize the level, I then wanted to pose Master Chief in a preparing stance that he looks like he’s waiting for something to happen as he stands in guard and watching for enemy movement.
Facts: Born on March 7th 2511 in the Metropolis of Elysium city Master Chief was first known as John as a child. As John would grow and attend Elysium city primary education facility number 119, at the age of 6 years’ old John was discovered by Dr Catherine Halsey who worked for UNSC of Naval Intelligence. As Dr Halsey introduced herself to John, Halsey wanted to test John on his luck by getting an old coin out Halsey wanted to see if John could predict the landing of the coin and John would get 5 out 5 corrections because his eyes were quick enough to follow the coin before landing and Halsey had now found one of her 150 preliminary candidates for the Spartan 2 programme or known as Orion 2.
. As John would stand out from the other candidates in the program, John and 74 other children were kidnapped and replaced by flash clones which eventually died as John was taken to the planet known as Reach and would find a stitched service tag on his uniform as John-117. Now adapting to his new life on Reach, John would now begin his training to becoming a Spartan and future protector of earth and its colonies by Officer Franklin Mendez. For their first training exercise, John would team up with Kelley 87 and Samuel 34 in a game of ring the bell and John would learn by this exercise the importance of team work and became close friends with Kelley and Samuel. With 8 years of training John would learn the history of military strategy and tactics and given extreme physical training. John was an ideal candidate for his physical and mentally fitness and demonstrate remarkable leadership and problem-solving abilities to become a future Spartan soldier that would use his possessing strength, superior reflexes and aggressive drive to succeed to make a him a great soldier, but for now he was the squad leader. John and the other recruits were forced to undergo biological and cybernetic augmentations which included implant to accelerate their growth, John and 32 candidates walked away as the others died in the procedure or were damaged making John and the others basically superhuman beings and do their first mission. After doing their first mission, the threat known as The Covenant arrived and started the war humanity by destroying the colony on Harvest and wiping out 3 million lives. Now taken to Damascus training facility, John was given his iconic mule armour named the Mark 4 that he would wear in many battle grounds and in 2552 John had been awarded every UNSC medal and was ranked as Master Chief.
