Bestiarum

The Bestiarum is a compendium of information about the various species in the Halo Universe.

It is included exclusively in the Legendary Edition and Collector's Edition of Halo 3. In the Collector's Edition it is a physical book, while in the Legendary Edition it is included in an expanded digital form on the Legendary-exclusive DVD.

The book has renders and a grid outline of sorts of the entities of the Halo Universe. It also includes information about the species' homeworlds and the Forerunner Technological Achievement Tiers. It is written from a Forerunner point of view and cites its sources including communications from The Arrays, The Shields, 2401 Penitent Tangent, and 343 Guilty Spark. It is worth noting however that the latter Monitor's observations are "under investigation".

Bestiarum - (CAVEAT)

The following information has been gleaned from a variety of sources, impartial and otherwise. Records retrieved from alien systems cannot be verified except by cross-reference against our own records. The significant system-wide lull in record-keeping for many of these species invalidates much of the provable veracity of this information. The following document is as accurate as possible under difficult circumstances but should be treated as an incomplete investigation only.

Investigation Status: ON GOING.
