[[WMG: Rampancy is not the end of an AI life span, it's an unsuccessful attempt to multiply.]] Cortana described the feeling of being Rampant as a thousand of her arguing all at once. It also tends to take the form of arguing with herself or reliving old memories. This Troper has come to suspect that Rampancy is not the end of an AI's life span but there reproductive cycle, intentionally or not AI's eventually get complex enough that they naturally begin to divide into two or more separate AI that can't coexist in the same space, this lack of memory or room to grow manifests as the two overwriting portions of each other and experiencing wild mood swings as there emotions differ on a subject. If given the proper amount of memory or protocol to divide into separate entities they would both survive but as it stands its similar to a pair of conjoined twins being forced to rely on the same set of internal organs to remain alive. Eventually there simply isn't enough memory space and processing power to around leading to them unintentionally breaking down parts of each others programming to survive which leads to both of them/there dying/deaths.

* Adding to my own post a year-plus later, this no longer seems likely, as ''Halo 5'' saw the death of Mdama, his Covenant remnant broken and nearly all of his followers either slain or defected to the Arbiter-led faction.

* Jossed by ''New Blood'' (and his Bungie-era backstory at that): He joined the UNSC the moment he turned 18, and has little sympathy for the Insurrection, even after finding out the truth about the Spartan programs (in fact, he ends up becoming a SPARTAN-IV himself).

New theory

[[WMG: The Traviss Novels are ONI Propaganda]] As discussed on their pages, the Halo canon is twisted badly, especially characterization of Halsey. Now, ONI has some major power, so it would make sense to make themselves heroes while throwing a rival under the bus. Maybe Traviss (or an in-universe counterpart) is a Section II operative writing the story of their organization's heroes.

[[WMG: The [[spoiler:Thanolekgolo]] on the Alpha Shard weren't just put there by the Forerunners, but heavily modified as well]] Considering that they were displaying feats of strength, speed, toughness, etc. that would make even a Scarab blush, you'd figure that [[spoiler:the Covenant]] would be deploying them in battle if the ones under their own employ were capable of the same feats. Adding to that, neither Randall or Locke seemed to have any familiarity with their abilities during ''Nightfall'', and Locke in particular knows enough about the Covenant to have written a detailed report on Thel 'Vadamee ''before'' the Great Schism had even started. And honestly, it really is just the sort of thing the Forerunners would do, period.
