Hello Karen Traviss!

I have finally gotten around to reading Halo: Mortal Dictata and finishing the Kilo-Five series. I loved the trilogy, especially in the newest book and how you explored the Kig-Yar culture and life on Venezia. I have one question, however. On page 59 of Mortal Dictata, you state that Skirmishers come from T'vao. Regarding T'vao, is it a Kig-Yar colony or perhaps just a continent on Eayn.

If you could shed any light on this question, that would be very appreciated! Thank you for the brilliant additions to the Halo universe and thank you for your time.

Hi NightHammer. Thank you – I'm really glad you enjoyed the trilogy. The Kig-Yar were fun – I'll miss them.

According to the Halo team, T'vao is a Kig-Yar colony on one of the asteroids. When I was looking for a location for Skirmishers, they suggested it.

Hope that helps.

Best KT
