SERVICE RECORD

Guardian Custodes were deployed as peacekeeping vessels to watch over what Forerunners deemed lesser species. They were widely used prior to the firing of the Halo Array, but went dormant once the Forerunners were wiped out.

The Guardians were mostly undiscovered until they were awoken by Cortana in 2558 when she started the Rise of the Created. The Guardians were applied throughout the galaxy to subdue any and all forces that wouldn’t submit to her rule. Of note was a Guardian’s subduing of Earth, which bore the brunt of Cortana’s attack on the galaxy.
