Biography

A Covenant Bomberman from Planet HALO.

A single soldier who reports directly to the Hierarchs, chosen from the elite families at times when the Covenant is in danger. As they risk their lives to fulfill their duty, the Covenant regards the position as the pinnacle of worship. Incidentally, Arbiter is a title and not an actual name.

Special Ability

Arbiter Bomber's special ability is Mediate (調停, choutei, "arbitration" or "mediation"). Pressing the button will immediately activate Mediate. During this effect, his movement speed is reduced to roughly one tile per second, and he produces an aura. While activated, any character or enemy character who touches Arbiter Bomber will trigger his ability, causing him to hit them with his Energy Sword and instantly eliminate them. The effect lasts for six seconds and will not end before that time unless he is defeated. There is a six second cooldown period after the effect ends before he can use Mediate again.

Because the effect is instantaneous, it is possible to trigger Mediate while standing in the same square as another character and defeat said character with a press of the special ability button.

Trivia

  • The Arbiter was introduced as a playable protagonist in the video game Halo 2.
