During the Halo Universe Panel you've mentioned that "The Master Chief and the Spartans are two unmixed strains of DNA somewhere embedded in one of my human characters in Halo Cryptum." I was slightly confused since you said both the Master Chief and the Spartans have the unmixed strains of DNA.
What exactly does having embedded strains of DNA mean for the Master Chief? Can he possibly have a Geas within him?

I don't recall using that wording, but I may have meant that the humans in CRYPTUM are ancestral to all later humans. I'm not sure what an unmixed strain might be. After the Librarian gets done with us, there are few surprises left in anthropology!
