Oya Manda! I am a big fan of all things Mando'ade. My hobbies include reading (I have 104 Star Wars books, 5 Halo books, all 4 of the out-of-print Star of the Guardians books, and the entire series of Claymore manga), riding my bike, Haidong Gumdo (currently Provisional Black belt rank) and playing video games and mods of said games. Favorite completed mod (two-way tie) -- Star Trek Armada III for Sins of a Solar Empire; Rise of the Mandalorians for Star Wars: Empire at War: Forces of Corruption. Favorite in-progress mod -- Yuuzhan Vong at War for Star Wars: Empire at War: Forces of Corruption. Characters Remaining -- 367
Although I have never played Halo 4, I watched a playthrough on Youtube. I came close to crying at the end. So, here's my tribute to Cortana. Some assumptions as to when she entered rampancy have been made, but the rest of the information is essentially correct. I just wish I had specific dates for "birth" and "death."
