Algolis was a human colony in the Algol binary system. The planet possessed a single moon. Algolis housed a relatively small civilian population and was home to some of the Office of Naval Intelligence's research and development projects for prototype weapons, including the HRUNTING/YGGDRASIL Mark I ADS.[1]

History[edit]

The Office of Naval Intelligence's Section Three had facilities on the planet, to which several SPARTAN-II augmentation chemical precursors were sent without Dr. Catherine Halsey's consent, likely in order to be researched for Project CHRYSANTHEMUM.[2]

The colony was attacked by the Covenant at some time between 2548 and 2552,[3] During the battle, the planet's civilians were evacuated while Marines from the UNSC Marine Corps of Engineers made a last stand against Covenant forces. The UNSC destroyer UNSC Heart of Midlothian was en route to the planet to secure the prototypical HRUNTING/YGGDRASIL powered armor from Weapons Research Facility T12A before the facility was attacked. All Covenant forces seemingly perished in the attack when a Marine sergeant known as "Ghost" detonated the powered armor's nuclear self-destruct device.[4][5]
