The Ren is a specialized utility shuttle of San'Shyuum origin that was used by the Covenant.[2]

Design[edit]

The Ren shuttle is small and boxy in shape and has two small viewports on the front.[3] The Ren is capable of quick, short-range travel due to its four impulse drives and is nearly as fast and maneuverable as the Type-31 Seraph.[2] Two of these impulse drives are mounted on "wings", much like a Banshee as well as two more at the rear.[3] Although most Rens are not armed, they boast compact slipspace drives which make them valuable vehicles for traders and smugglers.[2]

Operational History[edit]

In 2544, Master Chief John-117 used one while escaping Thel 'Lodamee's assault carrier with Dr. Halsey in Operation: WARM BLANKET.[3]

When a civil war between the Sangheili broke out over Carrow in September 2558, several diplomats of the Unified Earth Government's Diplomatic Corps evacuated the cruiser Unwavering Discipline in a Ren.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit]

In Ancient Egyptian mythology, a person's ren, or name, was a part of their soul that would live on as long as it was spoken.
