The Chieftain of the Jiralhanae is the central political and military leader within the Jiralhanae contingent of the Covenant,[1] responsible for representing their interests in the Covenant. The position was created by the Prophet of Truth, towards the end of the Human-Covenant war.[2]


A Chieftain of the Jiralhanae has requirements and functions beyond those of regular Chieftains. He represents the Jiralhanae as a populace and operates as a centric emissary on the Covenant's behalf, likely to the Ministry of Concert, and is also the Jiralhanae Commander in Chief of his entire race. The only known Chieftain of the Jiralhanae was trusted enough to be given a task vital to the Great Journey; Tartarus was given the task of recovering the Index from Installation 05 and activating the installation.

Notable Chieftains of the JiralhanaeEdit


  • After the death of Tartarus at the hands of Arbiter Thel 'Vadam, another Chieftain of the Jiralhanae was not immediately instituted, as Cethegus sought to claim the empty position during the Battle of Installation 00.[4]
  • The name is similar to the US army war time rank "General of the Army." Both are supreme military commander ranks.
