“I am lonely here, and time stretches to intolerable lengths.”
— The Confirmer to the Didact on board Deep Reverence

The Confirmer was a Forerunner Promethean who commanded the Fortress-class vessel Deep Reverence, in charge of the Quarantine Zone placed over the San'Shyuum homeworld. He is the sole occupant of Deep Reverence, and had not been relieved from his duty for more than twelve centuries.[1]


The Confirmer served alongside the Didact during the Human-Forerunner wars, and provided his brevet mutation. He was the commander of the warship Deep Reverence, and led legions of soldiers into battle. Following the surrender of the San'Shyuum, he was placed in charge of maintaining the quarantine around their homeworld. He spent the next 1,200 years serving aboard the Deep Reverence as it watched over the planet. As time went on, his ship became regarded as a memorial, and as his colleagues died over the centuries their Durances were shipped to Deep Reverence.

Description and personalityEdit

The Confirmer, like all Prometheans, was once a great and respected warrior. However, after 1,200 years of solitary guard duty, his mental and physical abilities had deteriorated considerably. He was quite out-of-shape, and wore armor that appeared to have been taken from several different sets.

He is described to be an old Forerunner that had gone through many more mutations and battles than the Didact, some less successful than others, appearing as a nearly shapeless mass of muscle and scarred skin. His skin was grey and mottled, with veins of unhealthy paleness. Unlike other members of the Warrior-Servant caste, this Promethean had no patches of bluish-white fuzz on his head or his shoulders. His teeth were black like stone, appearing as though they had grown together.
