この派閥は、それでも、コヴナントにとどまっていて、ヘイローを作動させて、大いなる旅立ちにおいて準備できている人々(「[ヘイロー2]」の端現在の)からなります。 コヴナントの内戦の最初以来ずっと、彼らは、エリート(サンへイリ)と彼らのグラント(アンゴイ)とハンター(レクゴロ)担荷体]によって導かれて、コヴナント分離主義者と戦っています。 この戦争の正面は、コヴナントシップが動作する空間のハイチャリティ、デルタヘイロー、アース、および区域を含みます。 これは必ずしもコヴナントの社会の中で最初の国内紛争ではありません； 現在のアービターが彼のオフィスに割り当てられた時に、彼に、アービターがグラントの反乱(コヴナントの間の紛争)間必要で、それが最も低いカースト、グラントであることを慈悲の予言者が思い出させていました。
Origins of the Faction編集
The High Prophet of Regret led a botched mission to Earth and was forced into the Battle of Earth upon discovering what turned out to be the human homeworld. Regret escapes to Delta Halo but he is soon assassinated by the Master Chief, which is considered a significant failure in the Elites mission to protect the leading caste of the Covenant. The remaining Prophets, led by the High Prophet of Truth, used this opportunity to replace the Elites with Brutes as their protectors. However, this move effectively shames and angers the Elites, who have been in such a position since the founding of the Covenant and they threaten to resign from the High Council.
Truth gave command of the Covenant Fleets to the Brutes, a position previously held by the Elites. Once there were enough and an ample amount of Brutes in place, Truth secretly ordered the Brutes to commit genocide of the Elites. With this act disguised and incognito as a Brute insurrection, the Brutes replaced the Elites within the society of the Covenant. The Elites, of course, revolted, enlisting the help of most of the Hunters and Grunts, birthing the Covenant Civil War in High Charity.
Early into the Covenant Civil War, the Elite Councilors are assassinated by the Brutes at the will of the Prophets, mainly Truth. When the Elites learn the truth about the Halos, it changes the war significantly and adds the Humans to the struggle. Instead of a Great Journey, the Gravemind's revelation regarding the super weapon contradicts the Covenant's belief system and is motivating at least the Arbiter in his eventual opposition to the Covenant as they try to activate Delta Halo later in the game.
The Fate of The Loyalists編集
- "I am Truth! The voice of the Covenant!"

- "And so, you must be silenced!"
- —Thel 'Vadam
Though the Prophet of Truth was killed, and most of the Loyalist's known fleet was destroyed by the Sangheili fleet above the Ark, the Covenant Loyalists still exist in some force, though likely in a weakened state, forced to rebuild after the war. Rtas 'Vadum expressed concern that the Sangheili homeworld, Sanghelios, may have still been endangered by the Covenant, and considering the sheer size of the former Covenant it is unlikely that the entirety of the Loyalists were present at Earth. Exactly who or what remains in charge of their political and military leadership is also unknown - the Prophets have been reduced to near extinction, and all of the Hierarchs were killed by the UNSC or Separatists, while the Jiralhanae also suffered the loss of most of their leadership with the deaths of Tartarus on Delta Halo and other high-ranked Chieftains at Earth and the Ark.
