The Redoubt of Sundering was a Banished-operated Prisoner of war-processing facility established on Zeta Halo during the Battle for Zeta Halo. Recently captured UNSC personnel were brought here for processing before being shipped off to Chak 'Lok's Tower for interrogation. Some prisoners were shipped directly to the House of Reckoning, while others were eaten by the guards rather than processed.[1]

History[edit]

Sangheili Kaidon Thav 'Sebarim commanded the Redoubt of Sundering during the first six months of the Installation 07 conflict, with the help of a Banished human inspector.[2] Numerous human captives, including Lucas Browning were sent here to be inspected and sorted. Prisoners deemed to be too badly injured or of no value were executed, typically by an Unggoy who threw methane canisters into their cells. Those who survived this culling were eventually transported to Chak 'Lok's Tower for interrogation. Dead and dying Spartans were also brought to the Redoubt to have their Mjolnir armor forcibly removed, after which the Banished guards would use their corpses for target practice or some other form of entertainment.[3]

At one point during this period, 'Sebarim sent a message to Chieftain Kalcuno threatening to send him to Chak 'Lok's Tower if the Chieftain continued failing to find the remaining UNSC humans on the Ring.[4] Also at some point during this time, First Lieutenant Floyd contacted Giuseppe M. and proposed staging a rescue op to free the prisoners at the Redoubt, though it is unclear what ultimately became of this plan.[5]

On or after May 28, 2560, Master Chief John-117 stormed the Redoubt of Sundering in order to free the marines held there. Despite facing heavy resistance from the Banished guards, including a trio of heavily armed Jiralhanae Chieftains, the Chief destroyed the three restraint generators holding the marines captive. The Weapon then alerted the Chief to the presence of one remaining captive being held under heavy guard inside a central structure. The Chief and the liberated marines attacked this central structure, killed a Gravity hammer-wielding Chieftain and the other guards, and freed the squad leader imprisoned inside.[1]

With the fall of the Redoubt of Sundering, the Weapon noted that they were now two-for-two on gatecrashing prison camps, as the Chief had earlier stormed the Tower and killed Chak 'Lok.[1]
