The Yanme’e, also referred to by Humans as Drones, are a race of aerial, intelligent, insectoid warriors which make up part of the unified conglomerate races of the Covenant.

Personality: The Drones, much like the Grunts, are a conquered race that was forced into service by the Covenant. They strictly follow the Covenant religion and obey any command without question, yet do not partake in social norms due to communication difficulties with other species. They view the Prophets as ‘Queens’, a remnant of their former hive lifestyle.

Physical Description: Yanme’e are 1.79m tall on average. They have a light chitinous carapace, six limbs (however two are vestigial) and compound eyes.

Homeworld: Palamok is the Drone homeworld. Its atmospheric composition is similar to that of Earth, yet it contains elements making it inhospitable to Humans. The planet has average surface temperatures of 29°C to 42°C (84.2°F to 107.6°F). Its gravity is two times that of Earth, so that would present a challenge on the evolution of the wings of the Yanme’e, but, it gives them excellent flight skills in the gravity of Earth.

Language: The Yanme’e language is a cacophony of high-pitched clicking from the rubbing of their waxy, leaf like wings.

Example Names: <unpronounceable>

Adventurers: Drones are one of the more independent species within the Covenant and individuals may be found in a variety of professions.
