Military Information


"Fifth Generation" Smart AI





United Nations Space Command


"Possibly humans can exist without actually having to fight. But, many of you have chosen to fight. For what reason? To protect something? Protect what? Ourselves? The future? If people kill to protect themselves and this future, then what sort of future is it and what will humans have become? There is no future for those who have died. And what of those who did the killing? Is happiness to be found in a future that is grasped with blood stained hands? Is that the truth?"

Cordelia (UNSC Artificial Intelligence serial number: CIA 4165-1) was a supposed fifth generation United Nations Space Command "smart" AI construct brought into operational service just a year before the conclusion of the infamous Human-Covenant War.

It was assigned to the UNSC Dove's Flight, a modified Carolina-class Frigate. Upon request by Vigil-057, Cordelia was later assigned to the SPARTAN-II Commando to serve as his personal AI. Her role was expanded even further when she was assigned to act as Bravo Team's handler.

Against All Odds



Cordelia's Primary Appearance

Cordelia's chosen avatar was the form of a young woman who sported waist-length green hair and striking golden eyes. She appeared in what seemed to be a heavily modified yet stylized white straitjacket adorned with various straps and zippers, and a high collar. One of the most noticeable aspects of Cordelia's appearance were the long sleeves that flared outward. Depending on her mood, Cordelia generally appeared with a green tint around her body, pulsing when at rest. When angered or under stress, green sparks were known to spontaneously appear and explode in a shower of glitter around her, indicating Cordelia's current state of mind.

Cordelia's Numerous Appearances

In an effort to fit the appropriate situation, her mood, or to simply tease those around her, Cordelia was able to assume different outfits and forms almost instantaneously. The appearances most commonly utilized by Cordelia were from different time periods and it ranged from a Victorian noblewoman to a dirty, ragged peasant girl among others. Cordelia's appearances and bodily motions were stated to be incredibly lifelike, and if it weren't for the fact that she was an Artificial Intelligence, Cordelia could be easily mistaken as a real Human. This was further made evident when Cordelia used reverse-engineered hard light projectors to manifest herself to interact with others, most of which found the interaction unsettling at best.

Behind the Scenes

  • Cordelia's name is partially derived from the Latin word, Cordis, which means Heart.
  • Cordelia's name refers to a character of the same name, who was the tragic heroine of Shakespeare's play, King Lear, who by all accounts refused to profess her love to her father and was subsequently banished for it. She stated "Love, and be silent", which was a situation reflected by Cordelia's undying affection for her partner.
  • Cordelia's Character Appearance is based on C.C., the tritagonist of the Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, a Japanese anime series created by Sunrise, the same company responsible for developing many notable brands such as Gundam and Cowboy Bebop among others.
