In Response To: I accidentally hit post. More in here... (Grizzlei)

: White Horse (Halo: Combat Evolved) - Then I saw when the Lamb broke one
: of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as
: with a voice of thunder, “Come.” I looked, and behold, a white horse, and
: he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out
: conquering and to conquer. Could the bow and crown represent John's
: pistol and new armor, respectively?

: Red Horse (Halo 2) - When He broke the second seal, I heard the second
: living creature saying, “Come.” And another, a red horse, went out; and to
: him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that
: men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him. The
: analysis on the article notes that Red Horse " is often pictured
: holding a sword upwards as like ready for battle " just as John holds
: up his dual SMG's. " In some translations, the color is specifically
: a "fiery" red. This color, as well as the rider's possession of
: a great sword, suggests blood that is to be spilled." may be
: connected to the original cover art of Halo 2 where John, with his guns
: up, is set forward of a "fiery red" background of a burning
: Mombasa. " The second horseman may represent civil war as opposed to
: the war of conquest that the first horseman is sometimes said to bring.
: Other commentators have suggested it might also represent persecution of
: Christians " Awful lot of civil war and religious persecution in Halo
: 2. All caused by John.

: Black Horse (Halo 3) - When He broke the third seal, I heard the third
: living creature saying, “Come.” I looked, and behold, a black horse; and
: he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard something
: like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, “A quart
: of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do
: not damage the oil and the wine.” The Black Horse brings famine and much
: of Halo 3 could be relatable to that, attempting to starve the Flood of
: all sentient life, whether merely by accident or through religious
: interference.

: Pale Horse (Halo 4) - When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the
: voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come.” I looked, and behold,
: an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was
: following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the
: earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the
: wild beasts of the earth. . " Unlike the other three, he is not
: described carrying a weapon or other object, instead he is followed by
: Hades (the resting place of the dead). However, illustrations commonly
: depict him carrying a scythe (like the Grim Reaper), sword, or other
: implement. " He's handling an assault rifle on the Halo 4 and Hades,
: "the resting place of the dead", could be likened to Requiem,
: "a Mass for the repose of the souls of the dead."

: Of course, this is just a stretch. But was kinda interesting. I hope I didn't
: just waste all that time on what could have simply been a cool file name.
: :P

Stretch or not, very cool an fun to speculate. I have loved Halos ties to different mythologies and references to biblical source etc.
