  • Kig-Yar: jackals, chickens
  • Yanme'e: drones, buggers
  • San Shayuum: prophets

  • Aliens in general: Alpha Bravo
  • Charlie Foxtrot: Cluster-YOINK!
  • Spartan: demon
  • Halo: holy ring, hula hoop, super weapon
  • Ventral Plasma Beam: cleansing flame, glassing beam
You can look up general military terms as well for most of the UNSC slang as well
Thanks for the list of stuff. I'm also writing a Halo story as well, and am getting close to the Covenant heavy section. : )
I wish you luck on your story. And send us a link when you are done. I love seeing community creations. 👍
No problem! I also would love to see this when you are done. Same goes for OP
I'll send you the first two chapters. Those are up. I just haven't gotten to the Covenant section yet. I hope you both enjoy it!
Chapter 1: https://www.deviantart.com/noctis-corvus/art/Halo-Chronicles-Cer-Catrova-778859617
Chapter 2: https://www.deviantart.com/noctis-corvus/art/Halo-Chronicles-2-Myths-Even-Among-Legends-778859863
Two things;
First: please refrain from multi-posting. You can edit your posts to add information and respond to more than one person in a single post.
Two: If you want to show off a community creation there is a section for that. This is universe a section for discussing lore.

Sorry. I thought they'd like the link. My bad.

Innie is another name for insurrectionists
Elites also sometimes call Brutes Jira'ul as an insult
I suspect most military jargon from today would carry over too.

I just wanted to point out the hula hoop part because it made me laugh for 10 minutes because I remembered Johnsons first speech in CE
  1. hinge head - elite
  2. chuck head- elite
  3. innie -insurectionest
  4. 'hog- warthog
  5. gorillas or gators- witch species your fighting brute or elite
  6. bugger -drone
  7. helljumper -ODST
Gotta go with either "buggers" from Halo 3 ODST, or "apes" or "gators" from the short headhunters film.
