Why the Didact CAN be Composed and WON’T be in Halo Infinite

We last saw the Didact in the The Next 72 Hours arc of Halo: Escalation, which, puzzlingly, concluded with him being Composed – despite stating in one of Halo 4’s Terminals that it would not work on him.

With his future uncertain, I thought it’d be interesting to reconcile this apparent contradiction and find a satisfying answer to why the Didact can be Composed, and why his probable absence in Infinite might be a good thing for fans of the character.

Halo: Battle Born – On Lost Childhood and the Value of YA Literature

This is not a bedtime story, some frightening fairy tale to entertain or scare young children; this is as real to you as the feeling of a book in your hand, a hot dinner to eat, an AI to hack, a concert to visit, a tree to climb, homework to be bored with.

This is what happens on the day the Covenant drops out of the sky to tear down your world.

In the many tellings of this story, never has it been told quite like this before.
