The Attack on Etalan was an engagement early in the Human-Covenant War where the Covenant's Fleet of Inexorable Obedience, led by Fleetmaster Nizat 'Kvarosee, assaulted the human colony of Etalan. It took place in March 2526.[1]

The battle[edit]

When the Fleet of Inexorable Obedience arrived in the Igdras system and set its sights on Etalan, they faced little to no resistance. By March 8, 2526, Fleetmaster Nizat 'Kvarosee was already leading his fleet as they methodically glassed the world, taking care to destroy Etalan's sole spaceport before any civilians could evacuate.[2][1] Due to the fact that Etalan's population was thinly spread between one hundred thousand nomadic villages, the process of cleansing each settlement took a while to complete. Over a week later, only about half of these villages had been glassed.[1]
