The Banished are a Covenant splinter faction and mercenary organization serving as the antagonists of Halo Wars 2 and Halo Infinite.

They are led by named Atriox and most of their leadership appears to be comprised of Jiralhanae. They also have several Sangheili mercenary groups working for them, and an army comprised of Unggoy, a few Mgalekgolo, and a few Humans.[1][2] They are extremely dangerous since not even the Covenent at the peak of their power was able to exterminate The Banished while their Covenant Forces nearly destroyed humanity in the past.


In the year 2559, the Banished set foot on the Forerunner Ark and attempted to take control of it, causing them to come into conflict with the crew of the UNSC Spirit of Fire.






  1. 1.0 1.1 Halo: Official Spartan Field Manual, page 161 - "In theory, all who can aid Atriox's ambition and will bend the knee are welcome, from human to hunter, but their violence and conditions of service limit recruitment opportunities."
  2. 2.0 2.1 Halo: Official Spartan Field Manual, page 156 - "Atriox is reported to have led a fleet of Banished to an unknown destination, but the chieftains he has organized and controlled continue to spread their influence and power throughout Brute colonies and even into human criminal enterprises."
