Political and military information




Itho 'Hesiikee[2] was a Sangheili in service to the Covenant who was tasked with executing the renegade Jiralhanae warrior, Atriox.[3]


During the Human-Covenant War, the Sangheili warrior known as Itho 'Hesiikee was given command of a contingent of Jiralhanae on Algolis during the siege on the planet. Following Atriox's return from another suicide mission, Itho expressed his concerns to the High Prophet of Truth about Atriox becoming an unpredictable threat, given his continued survival and rising influence among his peers. Hoping that he could still be of some use to the Covenant, Truth asked the Sangheili to find out if Atriox was still loyal and faithful. After learning that Atriox was becoming aggressively resentful of the Covenant's orders, Truth tasked the Itho to dispose of Atriox without turning him into a martyr. 'Hesiikee then arranged for a loyal Jiralhanae pawn to tail Atriox in order to capture him in an act of open dissidence. During an assault on a human fortification, 'Hesiikee observed Atriox closely from an eye's surveillance. The loyal Jiralhanae soon confronted Atriox when he made a blasphemous remark. In the ensuing confrontation, both Jiralhanae warriors attacked each other, and their fight ended when Atriox murdered the fellow soldier. Upon Atriox's return, Itho met and encircled him with a group of other Sangheili. Realizing what was intended, Atriox surrendered his gravity hammer and dropped to his knees. 'Hesiikee pronounced him a heretic for slaying his own comrade and sentenced Atriox to death for his betrayal. As the Itho thrust his red-bladed energy sword toward Atriox, Atriox caught the blade with his right hand and then killed the Executioner with his own weapon. Other Jiralhanae then followed Atriox's example and attacked the remaining Sangheili.[4]
