Personal details





Political and military information





Yey 'Mootasee was a Sangheili officer formerly in the service of the armed forces of the Covenant. During the Human-Covenant War, he served as a shipmaster in the Fleet of Inexorable Obedience under Fleetmaster Nizat 'Kvarosee, before joining 'Kvarosee's cadre of mutineers in the Flotilla of Unsung Piety following 'Kvarosee's "reassignment" for his failures at the Battle of Zhoist.[1] 'Mootasee would later take command as shipmaster of the intrusion corvette Divine Whisper, and was presumably killed in the space combat of the Battle of Netherop.[2]


Yey 'Mootasee served as one of the loyal shipmasters serving under Fleetmaster Nizat 'Kvarosee in the Fleet of Inexorable Obedience during Nizat's conquest of humanity in the first year of the Human-Covenant War. Following the fleet's failure to defend Zhoist from the United Nations Space Command, 'Kvarosee was summoned back to High Charity for reprimand by the Hierarchs. To attend the meeting, 'Kvarosee was escorted by his steward Tam 'Lakosee and eight shipmasters of the fleet - one of whom was 'Mootasee. The nine warriors served as a bodyguard for 'Kvarosee against potential Silent Shadow assassins and carried Okarda'phaa-pattern plasma rifles and energy swords to make up for the unarmed nature of the fleetmaster, while also carrying a number of boxes containing shards of glass taken from the glassed worlds of Nizat's conquest to add to the Shard Chamber of High Charity.[1]

Following Nizat's failed meeting with the Hierarchs, Nizat was ordered to return his Luminal Beacon to the Beacon Keeper before returning to Pious Rampage for "reassignment". Unwilling to accept a mere assassination, 'Kvarosee instead killed the Honor Guardsmen guarding the Beacon Keeper's Vault and then requested his escort to trust him and his judgement. The ten entered the vault and were able to rouse the Beacon Keeper from his sleep, getting him to hand over the remaining Luminal Beacon (and the beacons' receiver units) before tying him up and putting him in one of the storage lockers as not to sound the alarm. At this point, Yey 'Mootasee pointed out that the Beacon Keeper could have hidden mechanisms in place to sound the alarm even while tied up, and felt that they should silence the San'Shyuum as to prevent their escape from being hindered. Nizat agreed, and all ten warriors plunged their energy swords into the Beacon Keeper's chest to confirm their devotion to Nizat and his newly-founded Flotilla of Unsung Piety.[1]

Yey took command of the intrusion corvette Divine Whisper, and would later report the detection of a D75-TC/r Pelican in orbit over Netherop with no apparent mothership to speak of. This led Nizat to correctly assume the presence of the prowler UNSC Night Watch, and the start of his mission to destroy the Office of Naval Intelligence.[1]

By the end of the Battle of Netherop, the Helios Ultra dispatched to hunt down Nizat reported that all of the corvettes of the flotilla had been destroyed with the exception of Quiet Faith and Silent Truth. As such, 'Mootasee was presumably killed aboard Divine Whisper.[2]
