It is followed by both the Sangheili and many San'Shyuum in diversities of Covenant Ages and by notable individuals, including one of the former-Minister of Fortitudes clerics.

In the Multiplayer armor-customization mode in Halo 3, one of the Sangheili Armor Permutation sets is known as "Ascetic Harness."
