Imperial Admiral was the highest non-political rank a Sangheili could obtain.



An Imperial Admiral is of a much higher rank than a Zealot, as Xytan 'Jar Wattinree promoted Voro Nar 'Mantakree to the position of Fleet Master. [1] It is one the highest Covenant Navy ranks, possibly higher than Supreme Commander. Imperial Admirals control large Fleets of warships and operate on a very high-ranking Covenant Flagship in the Covenant Navy such as an Assault Carrier, Supercarrier or other very powerful capital warships within the Covenant Navy. Little else is known about the rank itself. It is unknown how many of these Imperial Admirals there actually were and only Xytan 'Jar Wattinree is named as an Admiral - so it is likely that the rank is very unique and rare.


Imperial Admiral's armor is silver, similar to that of an Spec Ops Elite and a Ultra Elite, and covered with the gold Forerunner glyphs of Sacred Mystery, much like the Arbiter's. Such silver-and-gold Elite armor has been mentioned as being superior in quality to the gold armor of a Zealot.[2] When Xytan 'Jar Wattinree spoke to his Shipmasters, he did so by way of a massive holographic representation of himself, over 30 meters tall. It is not clear if this was a choice peculiar to Xytan or to all Imperial Admirals, if there is ever more than one at a time, have similar holograms.


It is likely that, due to their high ranks, they are allowed to wield Energy Swords, though their positions mean they likely rarely see combat, so nothing can be known. Also, rather than weapon skill, they are requested to be tactically excellent, and to hold a great influence over the troops they command.



  • Since no other rank is higher than his, it is likely that they took orders directly from the Hierarchs themselves before the Great Schism.
