a supposed Precursor. This picture appears to be of the leg.

The Precursors are the race preceding the Forerunners. They have higher technological abilities than that of the Forerunners, putting them as Tier 0 on the Forerunners Technological Advancement Scale. They are believed to be Transsentient, which means they can accelerate intelligent life.


Precursors are large in size, with an arthropod-shaped head. They have a flat face and slanted, oval eyes. There is a tail coming out of the back of the head with a 2 meter barb coming out of it.


Precursors see the Forerunners as their legacy, such as the Forerunners see humans.

Not much else is known about the Precursors.
