Balaho is the Unggoy homeworld and it is the fifth planet orbiting the star Tala.
Joining the Covenant
Before it was found by the Covenant, Balaho was mostly dominated by Unggoy tribes living in a pre-industrial level of advancement. This allowed the Covenant to easily annex the planet and enslave its people
When the Unggoy Rebellion took place, an Arbiter was ordered to begin glassing the planet as a final warning; the rebels gave up before the orbital bombardment was complete.
Sixteenth Unggoy Disobedience
The planet was also the site of the Sixteenth Unggoy Disobedience. The Unggoy, once again disobeying the Covenant, were put down on Balaho during a battle in which the Covenant, commanded by future Arbiter Ripa 'Moramee, led the Unggoy back to the order of the Covenant.
It is a mostly-frozen planet with temperatures ranging from -33 °C (-27.4 F) to 5 °C (41 °F). Being a terrestrial planet with significant amounts of methane in the atmosphere, Unggoy wear methane tanks while they are on other planets. This gas prevents much of the world from being seen from orbit.
The parts of the surface that are not covered by polar ice caps or fresh water are brackish tidal flats where naturally occurring pillars of fire exist. Most of the Unggoy live in this area where the cold season is not as harmful to them. The world is still recovering from an environmental collapse caused by massive global over-industrialization prior to the activation of the Halo Array.
Flora and Fauna
Balaho is the homeworld of the Unggoy. There are also many other species on the planet including the Shade crab, the Mud wasp, the Zap-jelly, and the Scrub grub.
Balaho has two moons, Buwan and Padpad; the primary and secondary satellites, respectively.
