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