Legionmasters or Master of Clans[3] are Jiralhanae Chieftains in charge of differing Banished legions with considerable degrees of autonomy. They are commanded by a War Chief.

Banished legions were typically disorganized Jiralhanae pack conglomerates sizable enough to earn the title, and often raced each other to the plunder.[4]

List of appearances[edit]


  1. ^ In Halo Infinite, the TACMAP describes En'Geddon as the leader of the Ravaged Tusks, while his Target profile describes him as the leader of the Bulwark of Bone. This could be an error subject to change at a later date.


  1. ^ Halo Infinite, TACMAP: "Like other Banished leaders, En'Geddon led a distinctive subset of warriors, the Ravaged Tusk, gathering its own followers before coming to service of Atriox's campaign."
  2. ^ Halo: Shadows of Reach, chapter 7
  3. ^ Halo: Divine Wind, chapter 17
  4. ^ Halo: Shadows of Reach, chapter 2: "He knew from UNSC intel that the Banished tended to be more unpredictable and random in their approach, since they were led by a mob of chieftains competing to win the favor of a fierce Jiralhanae warlord named Atriox. The Keepers were more organized and rigid in their structure, with a strict chain of command and a religious doctrine dedicated to joining the ancient Forerunners in divine transcendence- akin to what drove the Covenant during the war."
