|Second Fleet of Homogeneous Clarity|
Unknown - November 3rd, 2552
Covenant (before Great Schism)
Protection of the Holy City of High Charity
Numbering in the hundreds
The Second Fleet of Homogeneous Clarity was a very large Covenant fleet, and was a part of the High Charity defense fleet during 2552. The fleet numbered in hundreds of warships and had the sole responsibility of protecting the Covenant holy city of High Charity.
In the 9th Age of Reclamation, the Second Fleet of Homogeneous Clarity was the vanguard fleet of the Covenant homeworld High Charity. It traveled with High Charity to Installation 04 and then to Installation 05, where it was caught in the Battle of Installation 05 as well as the Great Schism.

After the beginning of the Battle of Earth, High Charity and the Second Fleet of Homogeneous Clarity moved to Installation 05. The fleet launched wave after wave of Phantoms to assist the Prophet of Regret, however, John-117 was able to kill the Hierarch before reinforcements arrived. This was partly engineered by the Prophet of Truth who withdrew the Phantom reinforcements, thus allowing the Spartan to kill Regret.

As the Prophet of Truth left High Charity aboard the Forerunner Dreadnought, the fleet descended into chaos. Ships moved on random vectors, barely avoiding collisions, while the Jiralhanae and Sangheili-controlled ships began to engage one another over High Charity. At the same time other ships were trying to keep the Flood from escaping Installation 05. Some of the ships became infected by the Flood and many were destroyed, some sacrificing themselves to save the others. At least one, the cruiser Incorruptible, escaped the fight, but was pursued by three Jiralhanae-controlled frigates.
The rest of the fleet continued to fight itself and the Flood, until the Sangheili, under command of Shipmaster Rtas 'Vadumee managed to defeat the Jiralhanae. The Sangheili ships then formed a blockade to prevent the Flood-infested ships from escaping, and glassed the surface of Installation 05 to prevent it the escape of further Flood forces. One ship, however, broke through the Sangheili lines and performed a slipspace jump to Earth. A detachment of Sangheili ships in the area followed it, while the majority of Sangheili-controlled vessels remained quarantining the system.

The word "homogeneous" means of uniform composition and arrangement. This is an ironic name considering the fleet tore itself apart during the Great Schism.
