Forerunner keyship

The Forerunner dreadnought at the center of High Charity where the Ascension ceremony takes place.

An Ascension is a Covenant grand ceremony in which three San'Shyuum are promoted to Hierarchs and announce their names as the Prophets to the Covenant spectators.[1]


A monumental ceremony, it draws out tens of thousands of spectators due to its rare occurrence. It takes place in High Charity, specifically on the Forerunner dreadnought. Each San'Shyuum ascends one of the three legs of the ship until they reach the place where 032 Mendicant Bias has been chained in order to receive the blessing from their "Oracle." They then address the crowd waiting below and declare their new names.[1]
