From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

This article is about the UNSC city on Ganymede. For the ODST that participated in the Battle of Installation 04, see Lister (Marine).


Aigburth, Ganymede

Notable structure(s):

Development and creation of Mark VI MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor/V variant


Lister was a United Nations Space Command city in the country of Aigburth on the moon of Ganymede. The UNSC has an ordnance testing facility in the city, where the MJOLNIR EVA variant was tested.[1][2][3]


  • The city may be named after British surgeon Joseph Lister, the first advocate of sterile surgical environments.
  • Lister may be a reference to the British sci-fi comedy Red Dwarf, in which a human named David Lister comes from Aigburth, which is a real suburb in Liverpool, England. Additionally, one of David's adventures aboard Red Dwarf takes him to a colony on the moon of Ganymede.
