Sangheili harness


The General harness is a series armor designs employed by the Sangheili.



Valiant Prudence harness[edit]

This variant of the General harness was employed by Sangheili Generals serving in the Fleet of Valiant Prudence during the Fall of Reach. It features enhanced energy shielding and a command helmet.[1]

Post-war harness[edit]

Following the collapse of the Covenant empire, a number of post-Covenant warlords chose to don overly complex sets of armor - looking to fill the power gap left by the collapse of the empire or to reclaim a far older sense of honor.[2]

Jul 'Mdama's Covenant variant[edit]

Commonly employed by the Commanders and Generals serving under Jul 'Mdama's Covenant, this harness design bears notable similarities to the Valiant Prudence variant.[3]

In-game information[edit]
