WHAT IS SANGHELIOS?
The Covenant, a religious and militaristic order determined to wipe out the human race, were the main antagonists of the original Halo trilogy. They had to start somewhere – Sanghelios, legendary home world of the Sangheili race, the origins of the Covenant and the planet we probably associate with peace the least. It was mentioned way back in Halo 3, but Guardians will be the first time we get to visit the planet. Being the first new-gen Halo, which we’re promised will be the biggest yet, we’re expecting a world of incredible scale. But considering his history with its people, we don’t expect the Chief to receive the warmest of welcomes. Further Reading: Sanghelios features heavily in the novel Halo: Glasslands.
