|Political and military information|
Lat 'Ravamee was a Sangheili officer serving the Covenant's Ministry of Resolution as shipmaster of the CCS-class battlecruiser Truth and Reconciliation in the Fleet of Particular Justice. Formerly of the Zealot order, 'Ravamee was given command of Truth and Reconciliation by the High Prophet of Regret himself, and would later participate in the Fall of Reach. He later led the initial pursuit of UNSC Pillar of Autumn to Installation 04, where he would perish.
Lat 'Ravamee served the Covenant's Ministry of Fervent Intercession as a warrior in the Zealot order during the Ninth Age of Reclamation. By August 2552, he had been elevated from the Zealot order by the High Prophet of Regret's own hand and given command of the CCS-class battlecruiser Truth and Reconciliation, now serving the Ministry of Resolution. Truth and Reconciliation itself was personally commissioned by Regret in 2531.
Transferred to Supreme Commander Thel 'Vadamee's Fleet of Particular Justice, 'Ravamee partook in the Fall of Reach on August 30, 2552, taking honor in glassing the United Nations Space Command's fortress planet. Under 'Ravamee's command, Truth and Reconciliation was one of the first ships in the fleet to successfully track UNSC Pillar of Autumn as the cruiser attempted to escape Reach. As Pillar of Autumn fled the Epsilon Eridani system, Truth and Reconciliation sent the human cruiser threatening transmissions as the Fleet of Particular Justice pursued the ship into slipstream space, with 'Ravamee leading the pursuit from his cruiser.
Truth and Reconciliation and the Fleet of Particular Justice pursued Pillar of Autumn to the Soell system, where they discovered Installation 04, bringing 'Ravamee and his crew to their knees. The Battle of Installation 04 commenced when Pillar of Autumn arrived in orbit of the installation on September 19, with 'Ravamee giving chase to the human cruiser. However, the Fleet of Particular Justice was unable to promptly destroy Autumn for fear of damaging the Halo. While Truth and Reconciliation and a dozen other battlecruisers fired light armaments at the cruiser, the smart AI Cortana utilized the armaments of Pillar of Autumn to destroy four battlecruisers and heavily damage Truth and Reconciliation, before Autumn was forced to crash-land on the installation.
Once positioned over Installation 04, 'Ravamee was forced to take his ship to the ring's surface over a desert plateau for repairs. There, 'Ravamee prepared Truth and Reconciliation to be the primary staging area for the Covenant forces on Halo. Meanwhile, Captain Jacob Keyes was captured by the Covenant and imprisoned aboard 'Ravamee's ship. In response, John-117 led a force of Marines in a raid on Truth and Reconciliation to rescue Keyes. In the ensuring conflict, the Spartan-II encountered and killed 'Ravamee at his bridge, subsequently rescuing the captain.
Personality and traits
A pious follower of the Covenant's religion, Lat 'Ravamee was a fanatical believer in the Great Journey, more than willing to sacrifice anything or anyone in its pursuit. 'Ravamee reveled in the honor of assisting in glassing the human Inner Colony of Reach. He later found himself nearly overcome with joy upon the discovery of Installation 04, being brought to his knees as his life-long pursuit of the Great Journey absolved in aiding in the discovery of one of the Forerunners' Holy Rings.
As shipmaster of Truth and Reconciliation, 'Ravamee made his bridge his private domain, buried in an armored spur of his ship. The threatening transmissions 'Ravamee's battlecruiser sent to UNSC Pillar of Autumn promised to coldly wipe out humanity and their legacy.
