The Lekgolo are an extremophile eel-like race that combine to form large, intelligent assemblages known as Mgalekgolo. These gestalts are fully clad in large lumbering plates of ship hull. The Lekgolo are the third race to join the Covenant Empire, after the events of the “Taming of the Lekgolo” which began after the Covenant found the Lekgolo eating Forerunner artifacts. Mgalekgolo are the least common of Lekgolo forms, but the only one seen in combat. Not much is known of the Lekgolo, only that they are ferocious in combat.
