Qikost is one of the two massive natural satellites of Sanghelios, along with Suban. Qikost is silver in color and slightly larger than Earth's moon.[1] The large size of both Qikost and Suban had great effects of the tides on Sanghelios.[2] Qikost is home to large Sangheili population centers, major industrial sites, and many significant armories.[3] 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.[4]

Early in the Covenant's history, Qikost produced Sangheili swords of the highest quality, including burnblades.[5] Partly functioning Forerunner ancillas were also brought to several armories on Qikost for studying purposes.[6] 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.[7] When Sanghelios became embroiled in a civil war, a significant portion of the planet's population fled to Qikost, Suban, and other Sangheili colonies.[3]
