Topic: On the Master Builder in Halo

Dear Greg,

I'd like to start off by saying that I am a huge fan of your Forerunner Saga books in the Halo universe. I greatly enjoyed Cryptum, absolutely loved Primordium, and am looking forward to Silentium with high hopes and expectations! :)

However, I have one question that I simply cannot wait until next year to know the answer to. The character of Master Builder Faber is obviously a pivotal figure in the events of Cryptum and Primordium, and as an extension, the Halo universe in general. As you know, as of Primordium he is assumed dead on Installation 07. With the majority of marketing for upcoming Halo material seeming to focus on the Didact(s), I was wondering:

Is the Master Builder really dead? Or if that is too much of a spoiler, will we at least see him again in Silentium or other future Halo material?

No great character ever really dies, Steven! More is coming in SILENTIUM. Let me know what you think in March!
