( Bryan grabs the Didact with his powers, and puts his hand over his head) Bryan: (speaking through clenched teeth, with tears in his eyes) I will now bombard you with all the anguish, and suffering you have caused! (Bryan floods the Didact's mind with images of the people he killed in his lifetime) (Bryan starts crushing the Didact's head with his hand) Bryan: (enraged) SEE THEM! SEE THEM! SEE THEM! Didact: AAAAUUUUGGGGHHHH! Bryan: GO BACK TO HELL, YOU GODDAMN BASTARD! (Bryan crushes the Didact's head, with a sickening crack) Master Chief:......... Cortana:......Wow.
You know, the Didact was simply a misguided soul who was unwilling to accept something to be true. He did love his wife, and he did try to save as many people as he could by any means necessary. However, the means that he took were cruel, downright evil some might say. He committed genocide simply to fuel his war machine in the hopeless war against the Flood. But I still can't bring myself to hate the guy knowing his full story.
Despite his power armor, despite his supermodel good looks, and despite being the biggest badass in the Forerunner military, the Didact is just as common a guy as us.
Actually he somewhat hates his wife. lol. Have you seen the terminals yet? It shows that Librarian shot him then locked him in his Cryptum for 100,000 years. Plus, if you read Cryptum and Primordiam, the books, you see that Didact and Librarian had different plans on how to stop the Flood. Oh, and Didact killed some of her protected humans to turn them into Prometheans and she got pissed. xD They both have issues.
You're welcome. ^-^ If you need anymore info on him you can always ask me because my friends call me the 'walking Halo encyclopedia.' xD Good luck on your story by the way, I wonder what he'll think of Dragons! lol
