Algolis was a human colony planet. 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.[2]

History[edit]

Human-Covenant war[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.[3]

Algolis Invasion[edit]

Main article: Algolis Invasion

The colony was attacked by the Covenant at some time before March 28, 2549.[Note 1] 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 a powered armor before the facility was attacked. The planet's survivors escaped in transport ships to a UNSC frigate in orbit that carried them to safety.[4][1] The battle also resulted in the formation of the Banished as well.[5] Overall, it is unknown what happened to the colony following the battle.[2]
