Manipular was a Forerunner title given to adolescents. They were on average slightly over two meters tall.[note 1] These young members of society typically followed their families' lineage going into their particular rate.[1] As Manipulars had not yet made the mutation to a first-form, they were identified as "Form Zero" in their names.[2] Manipulars formed divisional groups known as Maniples.[3]

Notable Manipulars[edit]


The term "Maniple" is derived from an ancient Roman military unit. "Manipular" is the adjective form of the word.
