Halo 5 concept by LordKomodo Halo 5 concept by LordKomodo
I've always wondered after Halo 4 what would Halo 5 be like? After coming up with my own theory I looked up other ones to find one that was more believable and I found this… When I read this and watched the Halo 5 trailer again and knowing the Halo lore it sounds pretty believable so I made a picture based on this. Now I know in the new graphic novels the Arbiter has this new look based off of the Halo 4 elites. I like the new look but in my eyes I felt the Halo 3 Arbiter looks better ( meaning how he looked as an Elite, not his armor ). From watching the Halo 5 trailer and from Chiefs appearance he looks like he's hiding from someone judging by the large cloak. Also his visor looks damaged so I'm guessing he got into some sort of fight. My guess is that he left The Infinity without permission to do so and was fired upon or he left with Lasky's help and got into a firefight later on.  
So yeah the Arbiters on the left, Chief is in the middle and on the right is my concept of what Medicant Bias would look like in Halo 5.

mendicant bias is a monitor who's personality was split between installations, half of him was on the ark and is presumed destroyed

I like how The Arbiter wears the same Ring on his head as the Prophets used to.

it looks better than halo 5 abiter in the the comics

Agreed, although I find 343's art style for elites cool it makes them look too animalistic. The elites in Halo 2 and 3 were better looking in my opinion. Also, the arbiters armor in the comic series looks too much like his Arbiter armor, he should have a more ceremonial or shipmaster like armor now that he's back in command.

The Halo 3 elites? you mean the gangly ones with the tooth pick wrists? I'm not a big fan of the art direction in 3, I find it pretty dull. I do like that they are keeping the Arbiters old armor design for Halo 5. At least, if the MC collection with Thel & Locke is of any indication.

Well if I was to choose from the Halo series which elites were the best it has to be Halo 2 and to be honest in my opinion Halo 2 also had the best campaign. The way the elites looked and talked in Halo 2 made them less brutish and more sentient like. When Halo 3 came out their armor looked cool but the elites looked more fierce and their teeth looked crazy but I still didn't mind the look. Halo Reach made them act and look more like brutes and 343's art direction was interesting but it too took away from their Halo 2 counterparts. When I saw Halo 2, it set the stage for not only it's story but the characters too. I do like 343's art direction and the new arbiter has a more fierce look but it still matches his voice and character so I'm happy with it.
