The Banished have taken to heavily modifying Covenant weapons, vehicles, and other technologies to suit their purposes. Modifications undertaken by the Banished range across the entire arsenal, and mainly tend to be cosmeti, with the installation of bright red lights and sharp angular edges more in line with Brute design philosophy than Covenant.

The Banished have taken to heavily modifying the Covenant weapons, vehicles, and other technologies to suit their purposes. With most, if not all Banished technology possessing bright red lights, possibly some form of enhancement, and sharper edges that are more in line with Brute philosophy than Covenant. This extends from small arms such the Brute Spiker and Brute shot, to Wraith tanks and Scarab Walkers. It is unknown how much these modifications are beyond cosmetic and affect performance.

Additionally, it is currently unstated if the Banished simply have massive stockpiles of these weapons and technologies, or if they are producing them. This is made more difficult as it is unknown whether vehicles such as the Blisterback and Reaver are Banished creations, or are older, obsolete vehicles that have been discarded by the Covenant and brought back into service by the Banished, such as the Shroud. Considering the nature of the Banished as an organization, it is more likely that the hitherto unseen vehicles are older Covenant designs that never saw use in the Human-Covenant War. Or at the very least, no records of their usages ever reached UNSC space.

“
You wish to know about Atriox and his Banished? The Covenant's dirty little secret. The Jiralhanae they could not control.
”
— Unknown Sangheili describing The Banished and Atriox to ONI operatives.[2]

The Banished was a mercenary faction that broke away from the Covenant Empire. This faction was led by Atriox. The logo of The Banished is called the Mark of Atriox.[3]

History

Origins

During the Human-Covenant war, Atriox was sent to fight in 40 man teams. In each battle, Atriox was the only survivor. Tired of seeing his compatriots die, Atriox rebelled against the Covenant. Thus The Banished was created.[4] Now, its own organization separate from the Covenant, The Banished began fighting against the Covenant before the Great Schism.[5]

Expansion

In early 2550, the Office of Naval Intelligence began to take notice of The Banished. Specifically after The Banished's attack and theft from the Carter Guard Armory.[6] For the rest of the year, The Banished turned toward the Covenant primarily, raiding and recruiting only to have ONI notice this trail after Codename: Slow Dive. Desperate to gain any assistance in the Human-Covenant war, one ONI agent proposed making a deal with Atriox.[7]

The largest acquisition by The Banished happened in 2553. The CAS-class assault carrier Enduring Conviction and its crew would fall under control of Atriox.[8]

In the November of 2558,[9] The Banished arrived at Installation 00.[10] However, The Banished maintained some operations in the Orion Arm.[11] After arriving, the Banished assaulted the Henry Lamb Research Outpost and killed most who were in the base.[9]

Battling the Spirit of Fire

Main article: Battle of Installation 00 (2559)

In 2559,[12][13] the crew of the UNSC Spirit of Fire encountered them. Atriox attacked Red Team, and allowed them to escape. James Cutter then declared war upon the Banished.[10][14] During the battle, the Banished lost the Enduring Conviction to a barrage of Sentinels. Though this loss was devastating, The Banished had discovered Installation 09. They immediately attempted to board the new Halo,[15] though a large portion of them failed to get on thanks to the Spirit's forces.[16] The remaining Banished forces on the ring were destroyed in attempts to access the Control Room. However, this failure didn't stop Banished forces still on the Ark proper.[17] Colony attempted to gain control of Forerunner tech, only to be defeated by the Spirit's forces.[18]

Following the conflict with the Halo, forces of the Banished ended up disobeying Atriox's orders about a location on the Ark. What resulted, was a Flood resurgence on Installation 00.[19]

Military

Assets

The Banished have taken to heavily modifying Covenant weapons, vehicles, and other technologies to suit their purposes. Modifications undertaken by the Banished range across the entire arsenal, and mainly tend to be cosmeti, with the installation of bright red lights and sharp angular edges more in line with Brute design philosophy than Covenant. These extensive overhauls may also signify a form of enhancement to damage output and/or resilinace.[citation needed]

Additionally, it is unknown if the Banished simply have accumulated massive stockpiles of these weapons and technologies, or if they are producing them.[citation needed] This is made more difficult, as it is unknown whether vehicles such as the Blisterback and Reaver are Banished creations, or are obsolete vehicles of Covenant origin that have been recommissioned by the Banished, such as the Shroud.[citation needed] Considering the nature of the Banished as an organization, it is more likely that the hitherto unseen vehicles are older Covenant designs that never saw use in the Human-Covenant War.[citation needed]

Armament

Ground Vehicles

The Banished use a variety of ground vehicles. These include the Reaver, the Marauder, the Wraith, the Chopper, the Ghost and Type-47 Scarab. The Banished also use their own variant of the Shade turret.

Air Vehicles

The Banished utilised the Shroud and Blisterback as well as their own variants of the Banshee, Spirit, Phantom and Lich.

Starships

The Banished have control over at least one CAS-class assault carrier, the Enduring Conviction.

Subordinates

The Banished is predominantly composed of Jiralhanae and led by the Jiralhanae Atriox and Decimus.

Unlike most Jiralhanae, Atriox does not care for the Sangheili-Jiralhanae war, viewing the feud as petty.[20] As such, he has welcomed many Sangheili into the Banished as warriors.[21] Because Atriox and the Jiralhanae in the Banished claim to not have been involved in the betrayal and massacre of the Sangheili,[22] many Sangheili have willingly accepted the offer, and joined viewing the Banished as "other".[23] Let 'Volir, his crew, and three Sangheili formerly from Resa 'Azavayl's Silent Shadow squad reluctantly joined the Banished. Despite this coexistence, rivalry between the two species still manifests. The Sangheili under Decimus' command were treated with resentment and often sadistically sent on suicide missions.[24] This is due to Decimus in particular, still holding a grudge against the Sangheili for treating the Jiralhanae as inferior during the time of the Covenant.[25]

The Banished encompass members of several species, including Unggoy, Huragok and Mgalekgolo.
