Biography[edit]

Battle of Harvest[edit]

Main article: First Battle of Harvest

Calid was a part of Maccabeus' pack and served on the Covenant cruiser Rapid Conversion. After recovering the Deacon Dadab and Huragok Lighter Than Some, the crew of the Rapid Conversion discovered the human agricultural colony of Harvest in the Epsilon Indi system. Maccabeus assessment of the planet with the ships Luminary showed thousands of relics, but the devout Chieftain was soon shocked to learn that Dadab believed that there was an oracle located on the planet. After a violent encounter with the Kig-Yar, the humans on Harvest sent the ship's crew a message, detailing that humans wanted peace and wished to give the aliens a peace offering.[2]

After the hostilities between the humans and the Covenant began, Calid arrived to pick up Dadab in a Spirit dropship from the Unggoy outpost on the Tiara and deliver him to Maccabeus in the cruiser, as the Deacon claimed he had important news for the Chieftain. Calid, however, had to wait to return to the cruiser's hangar bay because the Yanme'e were attacking Lighter Than Some.[1] Later, Calid had to return both Dadab and the Huragok back to the Tiara.[3]

He was most likely killed during the engagement on the Tiara by a member of the Harvest militia group.
