The Punished Deeds
The Punished Deeds, also known as the Record of Punished Deeds, is a Covenant historical document. Part of the document was published by a San'Shyuum scribe in November 2552 on High Charity. The document regarded the history of the Covenant, as well as its founding species: the San'Shyuum and Sangheili. It has at least three volumes.
The Punished Deeds, Vol. III
Volume III notes that Ripa 'Moramee "has no fear of death". The Arbiter, before entering any Forerunner relic, would send in a group of Unggoy to check for danger. If there was danger, he would make the Unggoy detonate their methane tanks. It also notes that the Prophet of Regret used manipulation and blackmail against the High Prophet of Restraint to gain his position as a Hierarch.
This volume documents the history of the title of Arbiter and its holders' role in early Sangheili history, spanning from the time before the San'Shyuum-Sangheili War to the era of the Covenant. The Taming of the Lekgolo, and how the Arbiter ended the war and helped incorporate the Lekgolo into the Covenant, is also related. A later entry describes the Unggoy Rebellion, its quelling by an Arbiter, and the Unggoy's acceptance into the Covenant military. Finally, the document records the career of Supreme Commander Thel 'Vadamee and his eventual elevation to Arbiter. The aforementioned scribe included his own opinion that Thel 'Vadamee should not have been given the title of Arbiter due to the threat he poses to the Covenant following the Great Schism.
