UNSC Naval Command[2]




Etana Hensler is a Commander in the UNSC Navy during the Battle for Zeta Halo between 2559 and 2560.[1][3]


Installation 07[edit]

Main article: Battle for Zeta Halo

On December 12, 2559, Commander Etana Hensler was a part of the UNSC fleet led by UNSC Infinity when it was ambushed by Banished forces upon arrival at Installation 07. As the fleet fell to the Banished assault, Hensler made landfall on the ring's surface.[4]

By December 19, Hensler had rendezvoused with other UNSC forces at the wreckage of UNSC Mortal Reverie,[3] which had been found by Spartan Vedrana Makovich and designated as a UNSC base of operations.[5] Hensler, with Spartan Hudson Griffin of Fireteam Taurus, became the ad hoc leader of the UNSC forces gathered at the Mortal Reverie.[3] Hensler had aides, who were also involved with the decision to send a team of four Spartans to assassinate Escharum.[1]

Hensler participated in the defense of Reverie when it came under Banished assault on January 31, 2560.[6] If Hensler survived, she presumably retreated with the rest of the UNSC forces on February 2, when Spartan Bertold Vettel gave the order for the UNSC to retreat from the crash site.[7]
