Purveyor of Virtue is an assault carrier in service with an unspecified Covenant remnant faction.[1]

Operational history[edit]

During the post-war era, the Virtue was deployed to a critical human power and fuel processing station. The carrier was engaged by the UNSC Panama, to little effect. Despite this, the Virtue was unable to deploy its full might against the Panama for fear of destroying the installation it had been sent to capture.[1]


The design of the Purveyor of Virtue was created by artist Jared Harris for the Halo-themed fan mod, Sins of the Prophets, whose work is also officially featured in the 2022 Halo Encyclopedia.[2][3]
