Affiliation:

 

The Unggoy Imperial is a class of Unggoy combatants serving in the Covenant and its remnant factions, prominently Jul 'Mdama's Covenant.[2]

Overview[edit]

Imperials in Mdama's Covenant are veterans of the Human-Covenant War, having served under the Covenant military in the hegemony's prime. As befits of their history of service, they are given slightly higher rank privileges and more durable armor from their Sangheili superiors.[2] As Jul's Covenant faction gained permanence, it is not known if Imperials will keep their status or will be assimilated into the larger Unggoy population.[1]

Organisation[edit]

  • Unggoy Imperial Scouts: These Unggoy are known to augment standard patrols.[1]

Equipment[edit]

Armor[edit]

The harness used by Imperials was also issued to some troops during the Human-Covenant War,[5] and is more resilient than the Unggoy Storm version. The helmet is a heavy armor faceplate which protects the whole face. The methane tank resembles a Balahoan octopoda.[1] A similar configuration of harness was issued by Banished Unggoy Assaults, albeit more comparable to a more resilient version of the normal standard combat harness similar to those used during the Human-Covenant War, which was as well as used by Banished Unggoy Conscripts.[6]

The harnesses have been seen in orange, red, green, blue, and silver, implying Imperial-class Unggoys may have their own internal ranking structure.[3]

Weaponry[edit]

During the Battle of Requiem and the Requiem Campaign, Unggoy Imperials of Jul 'Mdama's Covenant commonly fielded Type-25 plasma pistols and Type-33 Needlers.[3] During the Covenant's final days in October 2558, Unggoy Imperials began to make heavy use of the Type-54D plasma pistol and Type-56D needler.[7]
