Halo Nightfall: Species 

What better way to finish 2016 then to round off a series of posts.

Halo Nightfall gave us a glimpse at a wider range of alien races than seen in the games.



Yonhet are a humanoid race who existed as part of the Covenant fringe. Their population and skills were not significant enough to make them part of the Covenant military, but their skills in uncovering items of interest meant they could act with some autonomy within the structure of their hierarchy.


In their desperation to destroy the Flood the Forerunners developed many plans, including adapting primitive Lekgolo worms to fight the parasite. The plan failed but the creatures were incredibly resilient, with a colony surviving the destruction of Alpha Halo, where they were housed. The colony could combine to imitate the form of it’s victims, including animals and humans.
