Avu Med 'Telcam, a former-Field Master of the Covenant.

Field Master is a title given to a high-ranking Generals in the Covenant military.[1] The title is one of exclusive Sangheili domain due to the Sangheili command over the Covenant's now-defunct armed forces.[2]



Field Masters consist of select Generals, tasked with taking charge of temporarily-assembled large military groups such as warhosts.[2] They operate at a similar command level to the aforementioned Generals, or Shipmasters.[3] They are typically signified by their golden harnesses.[1]

Covenant remnants[edit]

The title of Field Master was continued by several remnant factions of the defunct empire, including Merg Vol's Covenant and Jul 'Mdama's Covenant. Merg Vol deployed a number of Field Masters during his invasion of Draetheus V in 2555, using the unique magnetic signatures of the planet to hide their location. Ultimately, they were hunted down and assassinated by SPARTAN-IV Sarah Palmer. These Field Masters were outfitted with Nakata'vho-pattern plasma repeaters.[4] The Battle of Installation 03 saw Jul 'Mdama deploy several Field Masters armed with M'tara-pattern focus rifles onto the surface of Gamma Halo.[5][citation needed]
