Circumstance is a human Inner Colony planet in the Epsilon Eridani system, famous for its universities and courts of justice.[1] One of the universities on the planet was Koletre-Browning University, which Doctor Catherine Halsey attended.[2] Kurt Trevelyan was born in the city of Mira on Circumstance in 2511, eventually growing up in Kuiper, before being abducted to the SPARTAN-II program as Kurt-051.[3] The planet was likely glassed by the Covenant during the invasion of Epsilon Eridani in the summer of 2552.[4]


In the Halo: Reach live-action short Spaceport, Circumstance is a destination listed at the Manassas Spaceport.
