The Far Tower was a tower in the Covenant holy city of High Charity. Its Covenant name is unknown; "Far Tower" is a UNSC colloquialism used in order to name it.[1][2]

Description[edit]

The tower featured some holo-pedestals, a gravity lift and three landing pads for Phantoms and other craft. The tower was connected to the Mausoleum of the Arbiter by a solitary bridge. This is where the High Prophet of Truth boarded a Phantom to reach the Forerunner Dreadnought with his captives, Miranda Keyes and Sgt. Johnson.[2]

The tower is also where the High Prophet of Mercy was attacked and killed by a Pod infector, then was abandoned by Truth and his Brute guards. Shortly afterward, a Pelican crashed onto the tower platform and Flood combat forms emerged from the wreckage, followed by Jiralhanae from a door to combat the newly arrived Flood.[2]

It is certain that the Far Tower was destroyed along with the rest of High Charity at the end of the Human-Covenant War.[3]
