Wrong. It's described as a "pet robot" built by Amuro Ray himself and
later presented to Frau Bow. Tem had nothing to do with that cute
computer ball. (actually, the Rapport book you said only tells that
'It was built by Amuro. And that's not a suprise. After all, he was the
son of Tem Ray.')

No. Amuro built 'the THIRD one' and gave it to Hathaway Noah in CCA. The
fate of Halo 2G appeared in Z/ZZ is still unknown. (Maybe little Shinta
& Kum cherished it after the 1st Neo Zeon War ended) The third Halo looks
more like V-Halo than Halo II, for it lacks the 'chin panel'.

<V Halo>

Its color is also different from its predecessors. I can't find the
proper terms for the color though.

Actually, it pulls out the small baloon first, and then projects the
hologram on it. (Not directly on the thin air, like Casshan's Swanny. ;-)

...and R2-D2 style sub navigator's role for V2-core fighter... :-)

I don't think it is inconsistency. At that point, Halo only said
"Amuro genki, Bright genki blah blah blah" and there were nothing
important in that. Maybe the toy company that mass produced Halo
copied not only the appearance of the original but also the memorized
voice data in its brain, if they study the original before the actual
production... :-)

For your information, in Crossbone Gundam manga series, Vera Ronah's
parrot was named Halo, too...... ;->
