Political and military information




Inka 'Saham was a Sangheili General serving within the Bloodstars of the Banished. During the Human-Covenant War, he served the Covenant as the shipmaster of the Mutan Et-pattern storm cutter Heresy's Sorrow.[2] As part of the Third Lance in the Second Combat Element of the Valorguards of the Chosen,[2] 'Saham would participate in the Installation 07 conflict in 2560, during which time he was killed by John-117.[1]


Shipmaster of the Covenant[edit]

Inka 'Saham grew to notoriety during the Human-Covenant War for harassing UNSC supply lines and UEG trade routes as the shipmaster of the Heresy's Sorrow, a Mutan Et-pattern storm cutter. After the Covenant collapsed in 2552, 'Saham struck a deal with War Chief Escharum, dedicating his ship and his crew to the Banished.[2]

Banished service[edit]

In 2559, a Spartan-IV headhunter was sent on a mission to assassinate Inka 'Saham, but they were unsuccessful. The Spartan was captured and tortured as a prisoner of war simply for 'Saham's enjoyment, rather than for the purpose of obtained intelligence on the UNSC. After this, 'Saham would be inducted into the Bloodstars.[2]

'Saham participated in the Banished occupation of Installation 07 in 2560. During this conflict, the Weapon discovered his location and passed his information on to Spartan-II John-117. The Spartan proceeded to hunt down and kill both 'Saham and the Banished forces accompanying him.[1]


During the Installation 07 conflict, Inka 'Saham carried a Type-1 energy sword and a modified Pulse Carbine called the Rapidfire Pulse Carbine.[1][2]
