Both images have text in the upper left hand corner. The text even appears to be written by the same person. The first is drawing of a level in Halo 2 named "The Arbiter." The text "Gas_Giant_04" refers to the fact that the level takes place on a space station above the gas giant Threshhold. The image is a picture of that station. The number "04" probably means it is the 4th drawing in a series. Underneath that text we see the word "Dervish" (Arbiter). What does the Arbiter have to do with this level? He is the character that you play as on this level
The second image is presumably an image from a level in Halo 3. It is clearly the ark that we see. The description is "Earth_Ark_09." What is really interesting is the text underneath. What do "Chief/Dervish" have to do with this level? Perhaps they are both characters that you can play on this level.
Under the drawing description is a description of which character(s) are playable on that level. Both pics use the same fomula:
This would solve a lot of the Arbiter-haters complaints. You don't want to play as the Arbiter on the Earth Ark level? Well, you can play as Chief if you want.
Now, I would not doubt if some levels are Arby exclusives, but I also wouldn't be surprised if Bungie mixed it up to give Chief more love.
And you can bet your bottom dollar that if I am right, you'll be able to play co-op as chief and your buddy as Arby.
