"After the collapse of the Covenant, the Sangheili found themselves weakened and embroiled in another fierce civil war - this time with their own kind."
— Description from the Monster Energy promotion[1]

Sangheili Mercenaries, or Elite Mercenaries,[2][1] are the standard low ranking Sangheili mercenaries working for the Banished. While the Banished Sangheili are mercenaries in general, higher ranking individuals can hold titles such as Ultra,[3] or Shipmaster as Let 'Volir did.

Description[edit]

While many Sangheili continued to genocidally hunt down and slaughter the Jiralhanae,[4][5] a few were persuaded by Atriox to work for the Banished, as he claimed to have no complicity with Tartarus and the other Jiralhanae who had betrayed and massacred their kind.[6] As such, a small minority of Sangheili have joined the Banished as mercenaries, some of which used their earnings of military resources to fight out disputes with other Sangheili kin on their homeworlds.[7][1] Joining the Banished was frowned upon in Sangheili culture, Let 'Volir's name was notably forever tarnished for working under a Jiralhanae.[8]

Operational history[edit]

Several standard Sangheili Mercenaries were hired by the Banished and fought against the Master Chief during the Installation 07 conflict.[9]

Production notes[edit]

The design of the Sangheili Mercenaries bear an almost-identical design to that of some Sangheili Minor concept art created by Isaac Hannaford for Halo: Reach (shown below).
