"It is not I who will be killed, nor I who will apologize. It is that four-jawed kiniji."
— The captain-deacon Krelis disparages blademaster Inslaan 'Gadogai by calling him a kiniji.[1]

A kiniji is a creature known to Sangheili.[1][2] Referring to someone as a kiniji is considered insulting and even Jiralhanae may use the term to denigrate Sangheili.[1][2]
