Spatran-117 (his real name is John, but you know him as the Master Chief) is so memorable
because of his courageousness, intelligence, and attitude. He was one of many chosen to be
a part of the Spartan-11 project in the year 2517. The project was to make an elite army

an alien infested base, or having 20 guns pointed at his head, he never panics. From
completing simple salvage missions to wiping out an army Spartan-117 will do it without a
single drop of sweat.

The Master Chief influences me in many ways because his bravery is an inspiration to me.
