Ferrus was a Jiralhanae warlord who, after the fragmentation of the Covenant Empire, led a small Covenant holdout on Falkirk.
Originally part of the Fleet of Rapturous Might, after the Siege of Falkirk in 2551, Ferrus and his forces were stationed to remain on the conquered planet and oversee the mining of resources for the Covenant’s armies, which they did for almost three years. When word spread of the Fall of High Charity, the Battle of Installation 00, and the death of the Prophet of Truth, Ferrus chose to cut all ties with the Covenant and became a warlord.
Clinging to the forces under his command, Ferrus turned the system into his own personal fiefdom. In order to further his own power and wealth, Ferrus bartered and sold the resources he stole to other Jiralhanae factions in exchange for ships and weapons. 
It was Ferrus’ hope that in time, he would be able to amass enough ships and followers to establish his own pocket empire independent of all other factions for him to rule. However this would not be the case.
Reclamation of Gaelic
- The Covenant settled Jiralhanae on worlds rich in resources to guard them but the Jiralhanae lacked the capability to mine the resources themselves and were not provided the technologies necessary to do so.
