Suban and Qikost orbiting Sanghelios

Suban is one of the two massive natural satellites of Sanghelios, along with Qikost.[1] Both moons are gray in color.[2] The large size of both Suban and Qikost have great effects of the tides on Sanghelios.[3] The crystalline, raw material blamite, used in the ammunition of the Type-33 Needler and the Type-31 needle rifle, is mined from Suban.[4] Veins of blamite are found throughout the moon's interior. Suban is the only known location of the material.[5]

Suban is home to large Sangheili population centers, major industrial sites, and many significant armories. After the beginning of the Blooding Years, a large portion of Sanghelios' population fled to Suban, Qikost, and other Sangheili colonies for refuge.[6]
