As the War of Beginnings raged on for decades, the technological superiority of the San'Shyuum's Dreadnought spurred the Sangheili race to utilize Forerunner technology to defend their worlds. As a result of the Sangheili's augmented defenses, the conflict reached a point of stalemate and eventually left both sides open to compromise. In 852 BCE, Breaking Shadow brokered a "tentative truce" with the Sangheili leader Pelahsar the Strident. Both leaders forgave the past crimes of their species and began working to form a harmonious alliance, one that would soon be established by the Writ of Union and become known as the Covenant.
