Arkad Nar 'Kulul
At some point in mid-2553, the fleet controlled by Arkad Nar 'Kulul was holding position near a planet formerly under the control of the Covenant. Let 'Volir, the shipmaster of the Enduring Conviction, a CAS-class assault carrier, reported capturing Atriox, the Jiralhanae warmaster of the Banished, on its surface. The Brute had since been transported to his ship. Fleetmaster 'Kulul instructed Let 'Volir to maintain orbit and await further commands. Around twelve hours later, 'Kulul personally hailed the Conviction to inquire as to the status of the prisoner. The only response he received was movement of the vessel that had not been authorized. One of his underlings, speaking for him, voiced indignation over this action and asked about Atriox again with an order to reply at once. Hearing nothing, this Sangheili warned that further silence would be interpreted as hostility. True to that threat, it was not long before 'Kulul directed his crew to destroy the assault carrier. It was able to evade the barrage levied against it by making a pinpoint slipspace jump and then it left the system behind entirely. Fleetmaster Arkad Nar 'Kulul assumed that Atriox had somehow taken over the ship and that 'Volir had fallen, but in reality, he and his entire crew had willingly defected to the Banished cause.
