* AncientAstronauts: Just about everyone. The Precursors, who may have had a hand in the evolution of both humans and Forerunners, the Forerunners themselves, and the ancient humans who had a spacefaring civilization.

* HigherTechSpecies: The Forerunners.

Added DiffLines:

*** Subverted in Silentium which reveals she was on Earth up until the moment the Halo Array was fired with no way off as she purposely stranded herself meaning she was almost certainly killed by the Halo pulse. This means the Lifeshaper 343 Guilty Spark went looking for at the end of ''Primordium'' is someone else and not the Librarian.


Added DiffLines:

*** The Domain survived after it was repaired by the Isodidact and other Forerunners a century after being damaged by the Array firing. However it appears that all the knowledge it contained has been lost as a result of the Halos' firing.
** Silentium reveals the Precursors are incomprehensible Eldritch Abominations who can asume any form they see fit,(both physical and ''incorporeal'') their current form is the ''Flood'' and our potentially responsible for the creation and evolution of all known life in the universe and potentially ''created the universe'' itself.

* EternalEnglish: Averted (though not with English because none of the species involved speaks it). The Forerunners use many different languages (only two or three are given any detail, however) and many, many more have been lost over their ten million year history.

** What is known is that it occurred over a somewhat long period of time, and the Forerunners made sure it happened ''consciously''. The humans subjected to it [[AndIMustScream could feel themselves losing strength, mass, and intelligence over time]].

The first novel, ''Literature/HaloCryptum'', was released in January 2011, with others to follow. The story is told as a first-person narrative, from the perspective of Bornstellar Makes Eternal Lasting, a rebellious young Forerunner fed up with the social rules of Forerunner society. He is sent to a remote mining colony called [[UsefulNotes/{{Mars}} Edom]] by his father to learn discipline, but instead he gets caught up in an adventure involving AncientConspiracy, SealedEvilInACan and {{Lost Superweapon}}s.

The second novel, ''Literature/HaloPrimordium'', was released in January 2012. It covers the adventures of Chakas, a human introduced in the first novel, as he and a select few others journey across Halo Installation 07, seeking to find a way to escape and survive while also avoiding a malevolent entity's grasp, all the while discovering things about the Flood.

The third and final novel, ''Literature/HaloSilentium'', was released March 2013.

* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: [[spoiler: The humans and San 'Shyuum resisting the Forerunner siege of Charum Hakkor during the Forerunner-human war kill themselves rather than surrender. [[spoiler: This mass suicide could also be seen as the last act of defiance to make sure the secrets to combat the Flood die with them.]]

Anyone familiar with Halo can see their perspective though: who wouldn't chose death over being sent back to the Flood?]]
** [[spoiler:At the time, they'd pushed the Flood back so it was not much a threat to them. What they feared were the inevitable punishments to the defeated foes of the Forerunners. The prospects of watching their once mighty empire dismantled, the children devolved clearly made death vastly preferable.]]

* HumansAreBastards: Pretty much how the Forerunners view the humans by the events of ''Cryptum'', and for a reason. The ancient humans conquered several Forerunner worlds, though this was an act of desperation as the humans were on the run from [[spoiler:the Flood]] that ravaged many of the worlds on the other side of their empire. Many of the Forerunner worlds that humanity destroyed were also [[spoiler:infected by the Flood. Humanity was trying to stop it.]]
