“There will be time for talk when I rule in your stead, and declare your shame, Arbiter.”

Haka[1] was a Sangheili of the Covenant Empire that served as a military assistant to the High Prophets during the early years of the alliance. His rank is unknown, but he is assumed to be a swordsman.[2]


Duel with Fal 'ChavameeEdit

After the then-current Arbiter, Fal 'Chavamee, was declared a heretic by the Prophets, Haka sought to supplant Fal and become the head of his clan.

Haka was led by one of Fal's close friends, Roh, to Fal's wife, Han. He forced Roh to kill her, promising that his actions would save the clan from the wrath of the Covenant. After Han's death, Haka killed Roh as well, leaving their bodies as a challenge to Fal to direct combat. Engaging his opponent after the latter had slaughtered an entire Covenant Army unit, Haka mortally wounded Fal, but was in turn stabbed by the Arbiter's energy sword. Both warriors died at each other's hands.


  • Haka's appearance is decidedly Japanese, with his armor resembling that of ancient samurai warriors. Additionally, rather than an energy sword, Haka carries a more conventional metal blade.
