The Unggoy are a small species of servant warriors in the unified races of the Covenant. Humans have termed such warriors Grunts, due to their size, and because of their speech patterns. They are classified as a Therapsid, or a warm-blooded reptile.

Personality: While not overly intelligent or creative, Unggoy are one of the most cordial and sociable of the Covenant races as they possess a very strong pack mentality, often associating with each other in groups, instigating them to present danger when encountered in large numbers.

Physical Description: Unggoy stand 1.67m tall on average, have grayish-blue, scaly skin and small black, bead-like eyes, although some have reddish-orange eyes.

Homeworld: The Grunt home world of Balaho is a cold, swampy planet with a methane atmosphere and naturally occurring pillars of fire. The cold nature of their planet makes them highly covet any source of warmth and light they can find.

Language: Unggoy

Example Names: Dadab, Yayap, Kwassass

Adventurers: Grunts are followers and not known for their inventiveness. An Unggoy adventurer may be an uncommonly intelligent specimen or have been talked into adventuring by a more charismatic individual.
