The Covenant High Council was the central Theocratic/Aristocratic and decision-making body of the Covenant Empire. They possessed both legislative and judicial powers within the Covenant society. The council consisted of more than 200 Elites and Prophets, with the heads of the council being the Prophet Hierarchs.
Most of the Elite Councilors were assassinated by the Brutes as ordered by the High Prophet of Truth during his plan to replace the Elites with the Brutes in the Covenant society. When Truth ultimately took over the Covenant Empire, the High Council was scrapped when all councilors were killed or disposed of.
