Nina Kovan is a SPARTAN-IV supersoldier of the United Nations Space Command.


Installation 07[edit]

On December 12, 2559, Spartan Nina Kovan was onboard UNSC Infinity when it was ambushed by Banished forces upon arrival at Installation 07. As the Infinity fell to the Banished assault, Captain Thomas Lasky was evacuated from the ship, and Spartan Hudson Griffin ordered all Spartans to evacuate.[1] Kovan left the ship on a drop pod, and she entered the ring's stratosphere, she adjusted her drop pod trajectory for a deployment of Banished Phantoms in an attempt to board one.[2] Kovan successfully took control of a Phantom and landed on the ring's surface, where she provided sniper overwatch for members of Fireteam Taurus as they attacked a Banished anti-air artillery.[3] Kovan presumably joined Fireteam Taurus and rendezvoused with other UNSC forces at the wreckage of UNSC Mortal Reverie, which had been found by Spartan Vedrana Makovich and designated as a UNSC base of operations.[4]

On January 20, 2560, Kovan conducted a recon sweep deep inside Banished-occupied territory. She observed that Banished forces were only unified under Escharum, with internal competition among its members. She reported her findings to Griffin, and suggested that an attempt on Banished War Chief Escharum's life may fragment the Banished leadership.[5] On January 23, Spartan Griffin, the de facto leader at the crash site, led Spartans Panago, Malik, and Sarkar in an assassination mission on Escharum.[6] Kovan was among the Spartans that remained to defend the Reverie.[7] However, the assassination on Escharum failed. Griffin sent an encrypted message to the Reverie on January 31 before he was captured and handed over to Chak 'Lok for torture. In his message, Griffin warned the Reverie of an impending Banished assault.[8]

Under the combined leadership of Bertold Vettel and counsel of Makovich, the UNSC forces at the Reverie braced for the Banished's attack.[7] Despite the preparations, the Banished assault under Chieftain Tremonius forced the UNSC forces to retreat from the Reverie on February 2.[9] The UNSC forces scattered into the valley, and Kovan's fate became unknown to Makovich and Vettel.[10]


During the Battle for Installation 07, Spartan Kovan wore the MJOLNIR [GEN3] armor, employing the STORMFALL-class helmet, the UA/Faunus shoulder pads, and UA/Type SA knee pads.[11]
