Forerunners

I was wondering does anybody think that we will actually see what the Forerunners look like in Halo 4?

Yes, we've already seen the Prometheans and we know a Forerunner will return as well. Can't wait.

Not sure why, maybe i interpreted the past games in an unusual way, but for some reason i always thought the forerunners would be like humans. Not saying they would be the exact same but similar.

on all the halo-themed forums I've ever been on, they always bitch that stuff in Legends was semi-canon so they might not actually look like.
once I saw that sequence (when Cortana is recalling the history of the Forerunners) the image kind of stuck.

From Halo: Cryptum and Primordium we get a few details on their Physical Characteristics.

They are generally very similar to Humans. Although the Biggest thing that has always stuck out to me is that Forerunners evidently have a lot of Body Hair, more like some kind of Fur. And on the Didact/Bornstellar its purplish I think?

Are the Prometheans Forerunners? Or are they the creations of the
Forerunners?

The Prometheans are the best of the best in the warrior part of a ranking system. Halo 4-wise, Frankie seemed to be hinting that these particular prometheans were modified pretty heavily to an almost trans-forerunner state.

In the Forerunner civilization (at least in the Forerunner trilogy) the ranking seems to go Builders > Warriors > Miners

I'm more interested in if we'll ever see a Precursor.

I believe we did see one in Halo 2. Remember Gravemind?

The Gravemind isn't actually a Precursor. If my theory is correct, GM (and all Flood forms) are a step down from the Precursor and eventually with enough sustained biomass the Precursors could be reborn. From what Cryptum and Primordium have revealed, Precursor are supposed to be large Bi-pedal creatures with 4 arms and a sort of spike-club tail that runs down their back from the top of the spine. From what's been mentioned, they suggest it was loosely modeled after a Sea Scorpion.

Also, Forerunner as seen in the Halo Anniversary Terminals. Seems pretty similar to their appearance in Halo: Legends. Not sure if this is part of their warrior caste though. If I'm not mistaken, this scene involved the Librarian, so I would assume the Forerunner are a bit more extreme looking for combat-related intimidation purposes.
