Dossiers[edit]

01: Inka 'Saham[edit]

Inka 'Saham
HINF InkaTarget.png
Inka 'Saham grew in notoriety during the Covenant War as Shipmaster of the DAS-class storm cutter Heresy's Sorrow, which repeatedly harassed UNSC supply lines and UEG trade routes. After the collapse of the Covenant, 'Saham struck an alliance with the War Chief Escharum, and dedicated the service of his ship and crew to the Banished. In 2559, a Spartan-IV headhunter was dispatched to assassinate 'Saham, but the mission failed: according to reports, our operative was held and tortured as a prisoner of war, not to obtain UNSC intel, but simply for 'Saham's enjoyment. Since then, 'Saham has been induced into the Bloodstars, a Banished spec-ops group repurposed to train warriors in the art of eliminating Spartans.

02: Thav 'Sebarim[edit]

Thav 'Sebarim
HINF ThavTarget.png
Kaidon Thav 'Sebarim was one of the leading Covenant commanders in their final strikes against Earth and it's colonies on Reach and Luna. He abandoned his station after the Prophets betraying the Elites, and fled back to his homeworld of Suban to be reunited with their kin at the Keep of Malaston. As the Sangheili people descended into a vicious cycle of civil war, the kaidon joined forces with Atriox, as the Banished did not discriminate against Sangheili warriors, so long as they were skilled. 'Sebarim has become infamous for his actions in the Battle of Harrow, where his siege of the city of Adruvon resulted in the deaths of over 700,000 human civilians.

03: Okro 'Vagaduun[edit]

Okro 'Vagaduun
HINF OkroTarget.png
For the last decade of the war, Okro ‘Vagaduun was considered one of the most lethal infantrv assets in the Covenant, and was granted the title Blademaster by the Minister of Resolution for his remarkable combat ability. ‘Vagaduun hailed from a long line of swordfighters and repeatedly defied odds, surviving even when vastly outnumbered. When the Covenant fell into dismav at the hands of the Prophets, he returned to Suban, the blood-moon of Sanghelios and his birthworld, where he was approached by Atriox with an offer to join the Banished. Only after a year of watching his own people fall to civil war, he agreed. Since then ‘Vagaduun has fought exclusively for the Banished as part of the Bloodbrave, a sect of highly esteemed warriors from his homeworld.

04: Bipbap[edit]

Bipbap
HINF BipbapTarget.png
The mercenary Bipbap is among the most dangerous Unggoys known to the UNSC. Once a bodyguard for high-ranking Covenant officials, Bipbap earned his reputation for ruthlessness in service of the chieftain Tartarus slaying scores of his own people for siding with the Elites in the Great War. Following the collapse of the Covenant, Bipbap returned to his homeworld of Balaho to refashion himself as an assassin for hire, and was so successful that he was granted the title of "Vanquisher" by his clan. Bipbap is notorious for numerous acts of widespread destruction on the colony of Venezia, where his relentless and ruthless pursuit of his targets – and the collateral damage caused along the way – resulted in over 830 human casualties.

05: Briglard[edit]

Briglard
HINF BriglardTarget.png
One of the more disturbing reports from recent encounters with the Banished concerns the Unggoy known as Briglard. The grunt gained notoriety near the end of the Covenant War in the Great Schism where his vicious and often sadistic behavior on the battlefield earned him a high-priority target designation by Arbiter 'Vadam’s allied forces. Briglard joined the Banished after the war’s conclusion, where his macabre infatuation with violence - and his affinity for the Jiralhanae, whose ruthlessness inspired his own - has earned him great respect among his peers. He has been known to not just kill UNSC personnel at rates far outstripping other Unggoy, but to do so in horrific and disturbing ways.

06: Barroth[edit]

Barroth
HINF BarrothTarget.png
Having earned the title of Khordat for his exceptional prowess behind a scope, the Ruuhtian marksman Barroth garnered a reputation among Kig-Yar treasurehawks and raiding krewes for his virtually unblemished accuracy record. That reputation earned interest from the Banished and eventual initiation into their Bloodstar ranks with the aim of producing a lethal Spartan Killer. To date, our best intel attributes at least 271 UNSC deaths directly Barroth. If given the opportunity, we must engage carefully, but with extreme prejudice.

07: Zeretus[edit]

Zeretus
Zeretus, as seen in his target profile.
One of the most senior officers in the Banished, Zeretus - known to his peers as "the scourgemaker" - was among the first to join the faction after Atriox made his stand against the Covenant. Since then, he's been a critical component of Banished exploration efforts, leading numerous operations to scour Forerunner relic sites in search of critical assets - and destroying anything that stands in his way. In one such operation on the ocean-moon Lagolim, Zeretus ordered the sinking of a UEG research colony in pursuit of an ancient Forerunner site beneath the seas. Of the 1,244 scientists and analysts stationed there, none survived.

08: Balkarus[edit]

Balkarus
Balkarus' HVT profile
Captain Balkarus is a veteran Jiralhanae officer of the Banished who once served directly under Atriox's command accompanying his war chief on several critical missions. In recent years, he’s attempted to leverage this trusted standing to earn a place in the Bloodstars spec-ops group - a former Covenant combat team, appropriated by Atriox as an elite unit trained for the singular purpose of killing Spartans. Though he has yet to achieve this goal, Balkarus has distinguished himself among his fellow officers for his ferociousness in battle, and has been known to kill his own soldiers for the slightest demonstrations of hesitancy on the battlefield.

09: En'Geddon[edit]

En'Geddon
En'Geddon's HVT profile
En'Geddon parted ways with the Covenant alongside both Atriox and Decimus, a mere foot soldier of the alien alliance until his service in the Banished unlocked his true potential. Upon returning his clan in Zomar, a major city on the Jiralhanae colony-moon of Teash, En'Geddon rallied those who had remained to join the Banished, forging his identity as their chieftain. And it was here, that this savage leader began to gain his destructive renown. Like other Banished leaders. En'Geddon led a distinctive subset of warriors, the Bulwark of Bone, gathering its own followers before coming to service of Atriox's campaign. In the Banished, the chieftain proceeded to carve a violent path through dozens of human colonies, most notably Seaford and Vuryonos, large-scale raiding operations that left the worlds crippled in their wake.

10: Ik'novus the Devourer[edit]

Ik'novus
Ik'novus' HVT profile
One of the more experienced members of the Banished, Ik'novus was part of the Covenant attack on Jericho VII that decimated several human cities with unyielding force. Serving under the Brute Chieftain known as Thrallslayer, Ik'novus soon became renown [sic] for his violent and bloodthirsty nature, including a particular penchant for eating the severed limbs of his opponents while they watched on in agony. Acquiring the title "Ik'novus the Devourer" throughout his own meteoric rise to Chieftain, the Jiralhanae warrior continued to lay waste to human settlements, even after breaking away from the Covenant. His pack, Warial's Wrath, joined the Banished in 2550 and began to indiscriminately target any species or faction that stood in their way.

11: Arthoc[edit]

Arthoc
Arthoc's HVT profile
The Jiralhanae champion known as Arthoc has wreaked havoc on UNSC operations for the better part of a decade. First serving under Korth the Wrender, part of the Brothers of Unending Ire, Arthoc led nearly four dozen individually documented assaults on colonial sites. The most notable was a vicious ambush on the colony of Terceira that claimed the lives of three full ODST squads. Recent intelligence reports indicate that Arthoc joined the rest of the Brothers of Unending Ire in pledging allegiance to Atriox and the Banished. Their motives are currently unknown, but each member should be considered an extreme threat to any UNSC forces that might be in close proximity.

12: Writh Kul[edit]

Writh Kul
HINF WrithTarget.png
Writh Kul was born in the Tower of Vet'nos on the asteroid of A'zhd, one of the only cities of this colony to remain unaffected by the constant threat of piracy. After the Great Schism, her name rose to prominence in Tartarus' circle, largely due to her intellect and strategic wisdom of space warfare, which earned her the role of naval combat architect. Functioning in this capacity, Writh managed to take down over 185 UNSC capital ships, making her one of the most lethal Covenant assets in space. When the Covenant finally came to an end, however, Writh took her frigate Dagger of Mercy and its crew, and continued ransacking Forerunner relic sites and trading them in the burgeoning post-war, cross-species black market. Although lucrative, she desired to return to warfare and sought out Atriox, for placement in the Banished.

13: Skimmer Patrol[edit]

Skimmer Alpha
Skimmer Alpha as it appears in its target dossier.
It didn't take us long on this ring for the galaxy to throw some pretty significant curveballs at us. One of those new challenges has been the creatures we're currently labeling as Skimmers, which appear to be an as-of-yet unencountered species, at least not as far as my clearance indicates. They're working for - or perhaps with - the local Banished forces, but their armor configurations don't seem to match the normal Banished aesthetic. We've encountered at least one small contingent of the Skimmers that seem to be a more lethally outfitted group. We're not sure of their status in Banished hierarchy, but taking them out and gathering any intel we can - whether biological or strategic - wouldn't hurt if the opportunity presents itself. - Spartan Hudson Griffin

14: Myriad[edit]

Myriad
HINF MyriadTarget.png
Recent reports on the Lekgolo species have revealed some rather interesting - and in some cases unsettling — observations, in particular related to the strain of combat-ready forms known as Mgalekgolo, We’ve noticed a behavioral evolution in scattered instances trending towards a more individualized identity and intelligence, rather than simply an order-following hivemind. We encountered this in recent years with the Swarmlords that served alongside a dangerous independent faction of ex-Covenant evocati led by Ke 'Nzahz, as well as classified reports of a bond-pair known simply as Colony. Our current attentions have turned towards a unified bond-pair called Myriad. Single-handedly responsible for the deaths of two S-IV fireteams, Myriad represents not only an immediate danger to UNSC forces, but also another dangerous precedent in the species’ evolution.

15: Ordo 'Mal[edit]

Ordo 'Mal
HINF OrdoTarget.png
During the Covenant War, Ordo 'Mal was unequalled among Sangheili Wraith pilots, and was responsible for the deaths of at least 654 UNSC personnel. His death toll increased to over 1,200 in the years following, many of those taking place during the Banished raid on the UEG colony of Palghanar. Unlike others, Ordo 'Mal did not join the Banished until well after the Covenant's collapse, in the wake of the Sangheili civil war. Returning to his native keep, he united a network of feudal raid lances under his aggressive and mercenary leadership before being directly approached by Atriox for service in the Banished. In the intervening years, Ordo 'Mal found increasing favor with Escharum, Atriox’s right hand. This ascent earned him the title "Wraithmaster" among the Banished. He remains one of the single most dangerous elements in their combat stratagem.
