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][3] 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

Inka 'Saham grew to notoriety during the Human-Covenant War for harassing United Nations Space Command supply lines and Unified Earth Government 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

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 extracting 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; he led a number of his troops to fight against the Forerunner Sentinels on the ring.[3] Later on during the 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 Battle for Zeta Halo, Inka 'Saham wore a maroon-colored Sangheili Warlord's harness. He carried a Meluth'qelos-pattern energy sword and a modified pulse carbine called the Rapidfire Pulse Carbine.[1][2][3]

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.
