The Carrow Conflict was a conflict that erupted on the former Outer Colony of Carrow that was part-Sangheili civil war part-invasion by the Jiralhanae Chieftain Hekabe who was seeking the Sharquoi hive beneath the human city of Suraka.
During his rebellion against his cousin Rojka 'Kasaan on Carrow, Thars 'Sarov made a deal with the Jiralhanae Chieftain Hekabe for his help in the Carrow Conflict. However, this proved to be a grave mistake as Hekabe's real plan was to gain access to the Sharquoi hive beneath the city of Suraka and use the hundreds of thousands of creatures held there to destroy his enemies. During the beginning of the Great Schism, Hekabe had used the power the Jiralhanae had been granted by the High Prophets to find the vertex on Installation 00 during the battle there, the vertex being the device that would allow him to control the Sharquoi. During the battle, Hekabe's fleet was destroyed by the Surakan Militia Volunteers, including his flagship the ORS-class heavy cruiser Foebane, but Hekabe was undaunted. With the help of SPARTAN-II Gray Team, Thars was killed by Rojka while Hekabe's plot was defeated. Hekabe was killed by Sharquoi under the control of human governor Ellis Gass who then destroyed the Sharquoi hive and all of the Sharquoi on Carrow with a HAVOK tactical nuclear weapon.
