Fleetmaster,[3] occasionally rendered as fleet master, is a title given to individuals in command of fleets within the Covenant military.[2] On the eve of the Great Schism, the High Prophet of Truth granted the title to several Jiralhanae.[1]

Rank[edit]

One of the varying degrees of command titles within the Covenant fleet, the title of fleetmaster was given to the officer in command of a fleet. The title was originally only assigned to Sangheili officers within the Covenant fleet, though towards the end of the Human-Covenant War, the High Prophet of Truth promoted several Jiralhanae to the title of fleetmaster in preparation for his plans to remove the Sangheili from the Covenant.[1] Following the empire's collapse during the Great Schism, some Sangheili still held the title of fleetmaster.[4][5]

Wearing golden combat harnesses to signify their command position,[6] fleetmasters normally utilize a large warship as their flagship, such as a CAS-class assault carrier or ORS-class heavy cruiser.[7] Following the fall of the Covenant, some fleetmasters have found that ancient Carrack merchant cruisers are surprisingly capable and resilient troop and materiel transports in modern conflicts.[5] When Voro 'Mantakree was promoted from major to a fleetmaster, Imperial Admiral Xytan 'Jar Wattinree bestowed a middle name upon him, making his name Voro Nar 'Mantakree.[2] However, a middle name is not given to all fleetmasters. Fleetmasters can order tweaks on starships for their fleet during the ship's construction.[8]

Fleetmasters personally appointed by the Hierarchs to lead major expeditions were promoted to the title of Supreme Commander.[9]
