Otherwise known as The Master Chief or by his serial number (SIERRA-117) John-117 is the most exemplary Spartan in the UNSC armed forces. Raised from an early age to be the perfect soldier, John-117 underwent full-scale indoctrination throughout years of UNSC military training and then was subjected to significant biological and cybernetic modification in order to make him into one of their most powerful weapons of war - a SPARTAN-II. With the best wargear available and his powerful MJOLNIR Mk VI powered armor, there are few opponents that can stand against John on a level playing field and survive. Utterly devoted to victory at any cost, John will never back down, he will never surrender, and he will never give up in the defense of humanity. Unfortunately, due to the circumstances of his upbringing, John - like many of the SPARTAN-II candidates - was never properly socialized, leaving him quiet and taciturn. John's only friend is, perhaps, the artificial intelligence Cortana, his constant companion, tactical adviser and guardian. The two of them have defeated the plans of the Covenant and the machinations of the Gravemind on numerous occasions and the two of them would go above and beyond the call of duty for each other. In the end, there are few foes who are as resourceful, as powerful and as dedicated to victory as the Master Chief. John may not be the strongest Spartan, or the smartest, or the most agile but he has one thing the other SPARTAN-II candidates lacked: luck.
LESS THAN HUMAN: John-117 may have begun as a human child but to call him human now could be incorrect. A normal human can't do anything John can do. But, more to the point, the SPARTAN program has turned John into something separate from humanity. Considered 'broken' by certain members of the UNSC, said to harbour 'sociopathic tendencies' and 'difficulties with socialisation'. John is said to lack something akin to 'basic humanity' - perhaps the most tragic outcome of the SPARTAN program. John is not entirely unfeeling, he can be afraid, angry, even sad - but the losses he has seen has only served to heighten his icy status, leaving him with no real way to express it. If anything, John's relationship with Cortana is the one link to his missing humanity.
WAR MACHINE: There is really only one thing John understands: war. He is a war machine who lives on orders, regulations and missions. Without that, he is incomplete. While John possesses substantial critical thinking skills and is hardly an unthinking automaton, he has been indoctrinated from a young age into the life of a soldier and, providing an order seems sound and it seems to come from a legitimate superior, he will almost certainly follow it.DISTRUSTS ALIENS: The Master Chief has spent his entire life being trained to fight and/or actively fighting the enemies of the UNSC - in particular, those enemies took the form of the alien Covenant. Due to this, John-117 doesn't particularly like aliens. While John feels guilt if he is required to kill humans, this does not extend to alien opponents. He still has a professional sense of respect towards his alien opponents or allies, like the Arbiter, but he doesn't view them on the same level as his human comrades. This may extend to some of the more 'alien' members of the multiverse.
