The Kig-yar (Latin Perosus latrunculus], translated to "Hateful Highwayman") are an avian species which serve the Covenant as mercenaries, and later the Covenant Loyalists. Humans have termed these vicious monsters Jackals, as they are known for their swiftness, viciousness and dexterity, even though they aren't the strongest Covenant race. Jackals will either serve as snipers or scouts within the Covenant due to their excellent sense of sight, smell and hearing. They were the first Covenant species encountered by UNSC forces.
