Was it actually stated that the Librarian was female? I thought it was left ambiguous. --Dragonclaws(talk) 21:23, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I was thinking about that. It was never stated whether or not the Librarian was male or female. -- Sgt.johnsonGeneral-gr1 21:41, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
Maybe it was another man, and they had no women or were Homosexual like the Romans. It has to be one of these because the Librarian and Didact were in love. LovemuffinWiki UserpageTalk PageContributionsDancing master chief 01:56, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
Was the Didact given a gender? I thought they were both ambiguous. And homosexuality is more or less acceptable in our society, so I don't know why you'd bring up the Romans specifically. --Dragonclaws(talk) 02:57, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
I thought a large part of Bungie's ideas make historical analogies. In Ancient Rome gender wasn't divided in terms of relationships, comparing to a utopia. Bungie may have wanted this connection. LovemuffinWiki UserpageEdit CountTalk PageContributionsDancing master chief 00:31, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
The Librarian was never referred to by a gender and neither was the Didact. It seems foolish to assume and imply gender based on one being a "defender" and one being a "biologist" (or whatever you desire to call them). The Forerunners may not even have had genders or genders may have been meaningless to them. And in regard to the possibility of a filial relationship: If the Librarian is indeed filial to the Didact, they never speak as anything but equals. I think people are confused by the message displayed upon initial access to Terminal Seven: when a son writes his father and tells him of his courage. It would seem to be nothing more than a random message that found its way into the Terminal. There were already so many errors and anomalies in all the Terminals' memories that an aberrant message is not surprising. Kori126 18:38, 25 August 2008 (UTC)
Does anyone actually have sources saying that the librarian is a female? During last october I went through and changed the "she" into different ways of wording so as not to falsely portray that The Librarian was a female. However several users have changed this back, and I was wondering if anyone can provide sources as to state, or even hint at the Librarian's gender. If no source can be found, then I think that it must be changed back so as not to put such an emphasis on the supposed belief of The librarian's gender being female.

I always thought the Librarian and the Didact were father and son or student and teacher. ShortRoundMcfly 20:10, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

it is also possible that the Librarian was the son (or something) of the Didact, their relationship could be one of father-son love and caring.

The Halo Encyclopedia clearly and repeatedly refers to the Librarian and Didact as lovers, and as female and male respectively. Page 184-185 in particular.--Emblem 1Rusty-112 21:06, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

Hey, I was looking at the symbol and am I the only one who thinks it looks kinda like a 2D version of the hallway used in the iris servers. It makes sense since she (personally I feel a feminine vibe from him/her so i'll just call librarian female for our purposes) seems to have made the entries in the machines in these homes.

Librarian, humans and reclaimers Edit

Think about this, Librarian found humans "special" and this is the main reason the Foreruners designated Humanity as reclaimers, but why? In terminals (citation needed) is stated that there's a discussion about the mantle and the forerunner purpose of protect the life in the galaxy, and how this belief and overprotection causes so many worlds didn't defend themselves and were assimilated by the Flood. Humanity was not discovered and therefore not overprotected and humans were on their own. Librarian believes this is the reason why they are so special and one day, if they survive long enough they can "reclaim" the forerunner tecnology and definitively defeat the flood.

Monitors, a fragment of the Librarian? Edit

In the campaign of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary edition, the level "the Library" had a terminal involving Guilty Spark. Towards the end of the terminal, the monitor replies "but at the end, we are only a fragment of her briliance to us; and at the end, she did not appreciate the nature of my situation here." and also "Frag-frag-fragm-, Fragment yes! Oh dear, here it comes a again." Just a speculation that I wanted to post before abusing the "editing" of the article "Librarian." Please discuss, I am rather curious about the topic at hand.

Male librarian? wut?? Edit

It is clear that The librarian is female, and that the Didact is male, and that they are in love with each other. I don't know why would anyone think otherwise.

Books clearly state who is male and who is female in forerunner society.
