Congregation: "The Second Age! Rivalry and bloodshed!"
First Age of Conflict
- The First Age of Conflict is the name given to the time of the War of Beginnings, from 938 BCE to 852 BCE. During this time, the Sangheili and the San'Shyuum reformists fought over their different religious beliefs regarding the treatment of Forerunner artifacts. The age ended with the ratification of the Writ of Union, a treaty made between the two races that established the Covenant. The First Age of Conflict was preceded by the First Age of Abandonment and proceeded by an Age of Reconciliation.
Second Age of Conflict
- During the Second Age of Conflict, the Sinaris-pattern heavy destroyer was first commissioned for service with the Covenant fleet.
Third Age of Conflict
- The Third Age of Conflict was a time of violent civil wars that so often defined the Covenant's early history, as the empire took shape through conquest, submission, and slaughter. This age occurred within the first centuries of the Covenant's existence.
- The Varric-pattern heavy cruiser was first commissioned and entered service with the Covenant fleet for use in the civil wars of the Third Age of Conflict.
- The Shuul'se-pattern subjugator Kraken,a powerful siege tower and excavator, was first commissioned by the Covenant Hierarchs, during this Age.
