The Banished was a mercenary faction that broke away from the Covenant Empire. This faction was led by the Jiralhanae Chieftain Atriox.


The Banished existed as its own organization separate from the Covenant, fighting against it before the Great Schism.[1]

At some point during or before the The Reclamation, The Banished arrived at Installation 00.[2]

In 2559,[3] the crew of the UNSC Spirit of Fire encountered them.[4][2]


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.[5] As such, he has welcomed many Sangheili into the Banished as warriors.[6] However, the Sangheili under Decimus' command are treated with resentment and often sadistically sent on suicide missions.[7]  Let 'Volir and his crew have joined the Banished, as well as the Sangheili formerly under the leadership of Resa 'Azavayl. The Banished also encompassed members of several species, including Unggoy, Huragok and Mgalekgolo.




Ground VehiclesEdit

The Banished use a variety of ground vehicles. These include the Reaver, the Marauder, the Type-26 Wraith, the Type-25 Chopper, the Type-32 Ghost and Type-47 Scarab.

Air VehiclesEdit

The Banished utilised the Shroud and Blisterback as well as their own variants of the Type-26 Banshee, Type-25 Spirit and Type-56 Lich.

GameSpot - Halo Wars 2: New Character Images and Details Revealed-"Decimus still harbors some resentment against the Elites under Atriox's banner due to how Elites treated the Brutes during the time of the Covenant, and as one of Atriox’s generals Decimus now takes a sadistic joy in ordering those Elites on the most dangerous, even suicidal, missions."
