Lambda Serpentis, VII
Jericho VII was a lightly populated human colony world located in the Lambda Serpentis system. The world contained a biosphere suitable for human life, characterized by vast green oceans and rolling plains of palm grass. Natural satellites included four silver-colored moons. Jameson Locke was born on the planet.
In 2525, SPARTAN-IIs were dispatched to Jericho VII to suppress rebel factions on the planet. Around the same time, Orbital Drop Shock Troopers were also sent to put down Insurrection forces and remained on Jericho VII for over 131 days.
During the Human-Covenant War, Jericho VII was found and attacked by the Covenant as early as 2532. The planet was glassed via orbital bombardment in the final stages of the Battle of Jericho VII in 2535. At the end of the battle, John-117 asked Captain De Blanc for permission to watch Jericho VII being glassed. A large number of orphans from this planet enlisted for the SPARTAN-III program.
