Covenant (formerly)


Gol 'Rham was an elderly Sangheili miller on the colony world of Rahnelo.[1]


Gol 'Rham once served in the Covenant military, earning the "-ee" suffix to his surname in accordance to custom. By the end of the Human-Covenant War, 'Rham was near his ninth decade and working on Rahnelo as a miller, grinding mustard-colored grain and transporting it by du'nak-drawn sledge. In 2553, Rahnelo was attacked by the Zanar-pattern light cruiser Spear of Light, under the command of San'Shyuum Prelate Tem'Bhetek. After destroying Rahnelo's spaceport and military bastions, the cruiser deployed Jiralhanae infantry to the planet's surface to engage the Sangheili residents. When Gol 'Rham came under assault by two armored Jiralhanae, he tangled his du'nak and used his sledge as cover for a last stand. As both Jiralhanae came around the sledge from the same side, 'Rham used his old energy sword to behead one of the Jiralhanae. Despite having been hit multiple times in the chest by Okarda'phaa-pattern plasma rifle fire, Gol 'Rham did not fall until the other attacker was also killed. Only then did Gol 'Rham die in the snow, buried beneath the fallen Jiralhanae he had just slayed.[2] Three days after the attack, his corpse was found by Shipmaster Rtas 'Vadum and Blademaster Vul 'Soran, who arrived on the planet in response to Rahnelo's distress call. His corpse was then recovered by Kaidon 'Juran and his sister Tul 'Juran, who brought the bodies of dead Sangheili back to their keep to give them a funeral pyre.[3]
