Once a territory of Arcadia, Abaskun was known for its rich farmland.[3]

Human-Covenant War[edit]

During the Battle for Arcadia, Arcadia's main population centres were destroyed in the fighting,[6] including Abaskun.[4] Despite this destruction, the city continued to see human habitation for some time after the battle's end, with Arcadian survivors returning to Abaskun and re-establishing it as a small and rural farming community. Abaskun would continue to serve as an agricultural base for the Inner Colonies[3][2] for the next eighteen years until the Covenant's return to the planet on September 9, 2549.[3]

As the Covenant began glassing the planet, hundreds of civilian transports attempted to flee the destruction,[7] including ones from Abaskun.[5]


Abaskun was a port on the southeastern shore of the Caspian Sea that existed during the Middle Ages.
