Halo Legends Exosuit Lore / Franchise Information:
Halo Legends is a collection of 7 short films set in the Halo science fiction universe. Financed by the franchise’s overseer 343 Industries, the stories were created by six Japanese anime production houses: Bee Train, Bones, Casio Entertainment, Production I.G., Studio 4°C, and Toei Animation. Shinji Aramaki, creator and director of Appleseed and Appleseed Ex Machina, serves as the project’s creative advisor. Warner Bros. released Legends on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on February 16, 2010.
The idea for an anime compilation existed for years before there was momentum for the project. 343 creative director Frank O’Connor produced story outlines or finished scripts that the production houses animated in a variety of styles.
Powered exoskeletons are designed to assist and protect the wearer. They may be designed, for example, to assist and protect soldiers and construction workers, or to aid the survival of people in other dangerous environments. A wide medical market exists in the future as prosthetics to provide mobility assistance for aged and infirm people. Other possibilities include rescue work, such as in collapsed buildings, in which the device might allow a rescue worker to lift heavy debris, while simultaneously protecting him from falling rubble.
While the most successful UNSC powered armor project, Mjolnir is by no means the only such effort to physically augment soldiers in combat. After the failures of the Mark I, II and III Mjolnir suits, the UNSC Marine Corps began development of its own powered armor, the Cyclops, originally developed for shock infantry, then repurposed as heavy lifting equipment, then repurposed again as field technicians and demolitions units. RKD, an Earth think-tank, created the HAYABUSA project concurrently with Mjolnir and while the two were developed separately, they share many characteristics, and are interchangeable to a degree. Even the Covenant make use of powered armor, especially the Jiralhanae powered armor and the Sangheili Combat Harness, though their need for extra augmentation is lessened somewhat by the two species’ natural physical prowess. Even the Forerunners developed Combat Skins, using a class system based on numbers, on which the Mjolnir Mark V would rate as a class two.
