A species of squirrels were native to this planet.[3]

The planets forests were home to many insects such as grubs, beetles, and centepedes. They were presumably home to some large predators as well.[3]

Known residents[edit]

History[edit]

Rise of humanity[edit]

An insurrectionist camp was once stationed on the planet, holding prisoners they interrogated for data against the UNSC.[7]

Human-Covenant war[edit]

In 2530,[8] the planet was glassed by the Covenant[4] in the Siege of Dwarka.

Post-war[edit]

After the war, the fetcher Oliver Birch came across a relatively intact and abandoned colony ship among the planet's field of debris, CAA Butterworth. The only survivor aboard the ship was a three-legged dog, Mabel.[9]

Trivia[edit]

The planet is likely named after Dwarka, a city in India.
