In the Short TV series, Halo: Forward Unto Dawn, the end of last episode shows faces of two cybernetically enhanced soldiers but Master Chief John-117 is shown with his helmet. In the Halo Universe what is the real facial appearance of Master Chief John-117? Is he shown without his helmet in any of the games?
The only official image of Master Chief (John-117) was a post credits scene once the player completes Halo 4 on the Legendary difficulty setting. The scene is Master Chief having his Mjolnir armor removed, with the helmet being last. The image shown is merely his eyes.
However franchise development director Frank O'Connor gave a description of Master Chief's appearance in an interview with GameTrailers: “an older man, almost painfully pale, almost albino white, with pale blue eyes, reddish hair, close cropped to a skin head, and maybe the last remnants of freckles he had when he was a kid.”
