Even during cut scenes, the character generally speaks sparingly. Bungie's Frank O'Connor has described the Chief as "so quiet and so invisible, literally, that the player gets to pretend they're the Chief. The player gets to inhabit those shoes [and] apply their own personality.
He does his job, walks off, doesn't even get the girl, he's that cool he doesn't need her. The Fall of Reach deviates significantly from the treatment found in the games and other media.

During a briefing scene in Halo: The Flood, the Chief is described as tall with short hair, serious eyes, and strong features. His skin is "too white", a consequence of spending most of his time in his armor.
