Hey Guys this is Grox again.
I was looking on halo nation and I got wondering what Requim means
I looked it up and it seems it means "Gathering of Souls"
This is absolutely shocking as it tells us several things.
1 the planet is either named after the remnants of the Forerunner empire and contains their legacy (highly unlikely)
2 the planet is a cryptum and contains DNA strands of Forerunners or contains cyro sleeping Forerunner prometheans.
The second is far more likely considering the aggressiveness of the planet's gravity wells.
The gravity wells could be used for several functions.
They could be used to capture enemy ships, allowing for learning of their weaknesses and identifying the species' weapons and technology and hopefully navigation data to allow detection of habitable worlds from it.
My guess is that the shield worlds actually worked and this is a shield world where the Forerunner prometheans are slowly multiplying and hope to take back their old empire to its former glory. The fact that the sentinels on requim are far more versatile and aggressive than the halo array or even the lesser ark.
Chances are that The Didact is also on the planet, as in the "return of the forerunners" video a massively tall promethean with very large shoulders is seen. This is most likely Didact.
I know I have a bad reputation on the site for being a hater or short sighted, but please hear me out and think about what I say
