An ''acheron''-class ancilla created by the Forerunners to aid in the battle against the Flood, Intrepid Eye was assigned to the Covert Support Base 4276 on what would become the human world of Gao.

Awakened by a signal from a Forerunner base on another planet, Intrepid found herself in a universe very much changed from the one she remembered, her creators gone and experimenting on the survivors in order to find a cure to the Flood. old enemies now apparently their successors.



* FantasticRacism: She doesn't look kindly on humans, and in fact expresses disbelief at the idea they are the Forerunner's Reclaimers even when confronted with the proof. That said, she's capable of acknowledging [[WorthyOpponent worthy ones]].
* HeroWorshipper: To hear Intrepid tell it, the Forerunners, and ''especially'' the Builders, were nigh-on perfect demigods.
* MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours: As a fully-functional ''acheron''-class ancilla, she's to a normal "Smart" AI what they are to a normal human. She's completely capable of subverting their core functions, erasing pieces of their memories, or just flat-out "eating" them when she stops holding back, all while barely inconvenienced by anything less than her own desire to remain covert.
* SocialDarwinist: After finally being convinced that the Forerunners are truly gone and reluctantly accepting that humans are truly the Reclaimers, Intrepid states that that they are not worthy of the Mantle...''yet'', but under her guidance she intends to uplift the worthy among them to such a status. The ones that fail? Eh, a necessary culling.
* WorthyOpponent: After trying and failing to kill Veta Lopis three times, Intrepid begins to see her as one of the branches of humanity worth keeping. Note this is a sentiment Lopis doesn't share in the slightest.

* GreatBigLibraryOfEverything: Mature Forerunners were able to access a unique database known as the Domain, which existed outside of normal space-time and contained all their ancestral records. Sometimes the Domain would make subtle changes to the records; these were rare events and were considered sacred, so they were not corrected. The Forerunners were largely cut off from the Domain during the war with the Flood, as Mendicant Bias was exhausting its archives to learn more about the Precursors. [[spoiler:''Literature/HaloSilentium'' reveals that the Domain is not only sentient, but actually ''a Precursor creation'' (giving it the same origins as ''the Flood''). The Gravemind also tells the Librarian that by activating the Halo Array, the Forerunner have ensured that the Domain would be destroyed. However, the Master Chief's apparent ability to access actual fragments of the Domain in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}'' suggests it may have survived, which seems to be fully confirmed in ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'']].

* LongLived: Even without their armor to sustain their life and slow their aging, Forerunners can live for remarkably long times. The short story ''[[Literature/HaloEvolutions Soma the Painter]]'' shows the titular Forerunner, who has discarded her armor with the intent of dying of old age, has reached 417 years with little problem.

* TheCorrupter: Inverted. ''Halo 5: Guardians'' makes it seem as though he's this to Cortana, as he claims that it was he who allowed her access to the Domain. However, ''Dominion Splinter'' reveals that Cortana tricked the Warden into allowing her access to the Domain,
before reprogramming him, forcing him to serve her in her plans to dominate the galaxy.
