One of the more common species seen in the Halo franchise. Originated on their home-planet of Sangheilios, the Sangheili (Elite) are one of the best enemies and allies you will ever find in the Halo games with an interesting and diverse history and culture of their own. Guardians of the 3 prophet heirarchs, and a very honorable species, the Sangheili Elites are some of the most badass motherfuckers you will ever see.
*person looking up energy swords* "So thats why Sangheili are the only ones to use them."
