Humans have pushed past their physical peak by creating Spartans. Originally developed in secret through the kidnapping, training, and genetic augmentation of children, the Spartan Program has developed soldiers of immense potential and physical ability, Even with their significantly increased mass, Spartans are fåster and stronger than even Olympic-level humans. *PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Height: 7ft | Weight: 350lbs Four Limb, Bi-Pedal "Until the Spartan-IV Program, candidates were acquired, through clandestine operations. Candidates are - now èvaluated and acquired through a volunteer program and have been.deployed to operations spanning the galaxy. This once clandestine group of soldiers is now operating under their own branch of the UNSC-Spartan Branch. ELITES -SANGHEILI PLANET OF ORIGIN: SANGHELIOS, URS SYSTEM CHARACTERISTICS: Reptilian with a bi-nary circulatory system, quadruple split `mandibles; and tetradactyl digits. Physically, the Sangheili are superior to humans in every way. Their unique facial structure has earned them the nicknames "Split-Lip" and "Squid Head." The Sangheili are incredibly agile, due to their reversed-limb structure in their legs and redundant muscle structure. PHYSIČAL DESCRIPTION: Height: 7ft 4in - 8ft 6in |Weight: 310Olbs-390lbs Reverse Limbs, Split mandibles, reptilian skin änd features The Elites have concentrated solely on military.endeavors for a millennium-even before joining the Covenant. They are some of the mbst formidable combatants in the galaxy and should be approached with caution. The Elites comprised the majority of the Covenant's military and miitary leadership since the beginning. Since the end of Human-Covenant conflicts, the Sangbeilt are tò be considered allies of humanity and the UNSC. - BRUTES JIRALHANAE PLANET OF ORIGIN: DOISAC CHARACTERISTICS: Characteristics: Mammalian, sharing many characteristics with earth's gorilla and bear, and considered to be pseudo-ursine (bear-like).

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Height: 8 ft 6in - 9ft 2in | Weight: 1,100-1,500|lbs Ape-like appendages, Four limbs, Bi-Pedal, three fingered hands, massive bone and muscle structure. If the Elites are the lightning, Brutes are the thunder. These massivè, savàge warriors are the shock troops of the former Covenant. During the final days of the Human-Covenant war, they' served as the-leading warrior caste - replacing the Elites as protectors of the Covenant's leadership: The Brutes prefer action over wisdom, often solving issues-both internal and external-with force. Since the end of hostilities. between Humanity and the Covenant races, the Jiralhanae have reverted to their tribal ways: . GRUNTS - UNGGOY PLANET OF ORIGIN: BALAHO CHARACTERISTICS: The Unggoy are small, bipedal, exoskeleton-bearing race in the former Covenant Empire. Though they have an exoskeleton, they are also vertebrates, making it very difficult to compare them to any Earth-born creatures. The Grunts are the only member of the Covenant Hierarchy who do not breathe oxygen-thus requiring their signature methane masks. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 4 ft 6.5 in - 5 ft | Weight: 248-260lbs Bi-pedal, exoskeleton The lowest the low in the Covenant Hierarchy, the Unggoy are the physical laborforce of the Covenant.

The Grunts are weak leaders and soldiers and are, renowned for their lack of discipline in battle. Should their Elite or Brute leadèrs fall, they will almost certaínly scatter. Since the'end of hostilities between the Covenant and UNSC, the Grunts have found themselves as laborers for the Elites or continuing theirşervice as warriòrs to the Brutes. THE PROPHETS - SAN'SHYUUM PLANET OF ORIGIN: JANJU QOM CHARACTERISTICS: The San'Shyuum are a frail, bipedal species from the low-gravity world, Janjur Qom. While young Prophets are physically capable, the combination of a lack of physical lifestyle and high-gravity environments lead many of the San'Shyuum to become frail and weak. Many of the Prophets who have been recorded by humanity were already very advanced in their ağge, leading to the misconception that all San'Shyuum are frail nearly-helpless beings. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Height: 7ft 3in | Weight: 200lbs Bi-pedal, Long Necks, Humanoid features The Leadership Caste of the Covenant Empire, the Prophets act as the theocratic heads-of-state. Their prestige comes-from their research and interpretation of the Forerunner Artifacts and installations that were discovered across their empire. Their advanced science and technology are responsible for. the rapid advancement of the Covenant Empire, including their initial success against the less-advanced UNSC. JACKALS.- KIG-YAR PLANET OF ORIGIN: EAYN . CHARACTERISTICS: The Kig-Yar are a bi-pedal, avian species that served as scouts and snipers in the Covenant Military.

HUNTERS - LEKGOLO, MGÁLEKGOLO PLANET OF ORIGIN: TE CHARACTERISTICS: Hunters are not actually single beings; they are walking populations of small worm like creatures known as Lekgolo. When they take the Hunter form, the Mgalekgolo is the most physicàlly formidable member of the Covenant military. The small, orange eels that make up the Hunters are unintelligent when in small groups, but through the unique process that forms their communal structure, they become intelligent beings. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Height: 12ft 1.2in-12ft 3in | Weight: 10,500|lbs Bi-pedal. Multiple organisms that form'a single being. Until the Spartan-IV Program, candidates were acquired through clandèstinè operations.

This once clandestine group of soldiers is now operating under their own branch of the UNSC-Spartan Branch. ENGINEERS - HURAGOK PLANET OF ORIGIN: GHIBALB CHARACTÉRISTICS: An artificial life form created to serve the Forerunners, 'Engineers are ačtually, nanomechanical beings comprised of microscopic machines meant to mimic biological structure. They appear as floating biomasses, with long dark heads and four tentacles that can be split into smaller cilia. The Huragok are also bioluminescent and their heads and tentacles can emit a bright blue glow which can reflect their emotional state. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Height: 9ft| Weight: 130lbs Six'appendages, bulbous sections, several eyes The-Forerunners created the Huragok às servant-slavès, meant to be mobile centers for repair and enhancement of their super advanced technology.

Since the end of hostilities, the Engineers have willingly joined the rank of the UNSC in order to continue caring for Forerunner tech. DRONES/BUGGERS - YANME'E PLANET OF CRIGIN: PALAMOK CHARACTERISTICS: Physically similar to beetles on Earth. The planet Palamok has nearly twice the gravity of Earth, which attributes to their physical characteristics. Their hard exoskeleton is comprised of a chitinous substance to shield them from falls. Their wings and physicality allow them to jump and glide. They are comprised of five different body portions, as opposed to the normal three of earth's insects. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Height: 5ft 10in-6ft 9in | Weight: 17Olbs-240|bs Bi-pedal, exoskeleton, flight capable The Yanme'e generally served the Covenant as an aerial maințenance and labor force.

The conflict with the Flood eventually lead to the creàtion of the super weapons known as Halo to the Covenant. The last known Forerunner, Ur-Diadact, wàs killed by one Spartan John-117. THE PARASITE - THE FLOOD PLANET OF ORIGIN: UNKNOWN, POSSIBLY EXTRA-GALACTIC CHARACTERISTICS: Literally living death, the Flood begins as a parasitic life form that spreads via spores.
