- This character is from the Halo franchise.
Cortana, UNSC Artificial intelligence (SN: CTN 0452-9), is a smart artificial intelligence construct. She was one of the most important figures in the Human-Covenant war, and was also John-117's partner in various combat missions as well as serving as the A.I. for the Halcyon-class light cruiser - UNSC Pillar of Autumn, Orbital Defense Platform - Cairo Station, and Charon-class light frigate - UNSC Forward Unto Dawn.
Cortana was created using a flash cloned copy of Dr. Catherine Halsey's brain. Twenty flash cloned brains were created, but only two survived; one of the two survivors was used to create Cortana. The neural pathways of the cloned brain were scanned and copied through a process called Cognitive Impression Modeling. Her first words were "When the game is over, the king and pawn go into the same box" in Italian. She was one of at least two A.I.s that were created from Dr. Halsey's brain, the other being her predecessor, Kalmiya, who was a similarly smart A.I..
