Qikost is one of the two massive natural satellites of Sanghelios, along with Suban.[1] Qikost is silver in color.[citation needed] The large size of both Qikost and Suban had great effects of the tides on Sanghelios.[3]

Overview[edit]

Topography and ecology[edit]

Qikost is home to large Sangheili population centers, major industrial sites, and many significant armories.[4] The vast wilderness of Qikost is home to several Sangheili hunting preserves. Sangheili frontiersmen once used early prototypes of the Type-48 Revenant to traverse these preserves.[5]

History[edit]

Covenant era[edit]

Early in the Covenant's history, Qikost produced Sangheili swords of the highest quality, including burnblades.[6] Partly functioning Forerunner ancillas were also brought to several armories on Qikost for studying purposes.[7]

Human-Covenant war[edit]

Throughout the Human-Covenant War, a group of Sangheili merchants lived on Qikost and engineered weapons for the Covenant arsenal, and continued to do so for post-war factions.[8]

Post-war[edit]

When Sanghelios became embroiled in a civil war, a significant portion of the planet's population fled to Qikost, Suban, and other Sangheili colonies.[2]
