From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
Verent was an Outer Colony planet of the Unified Earth Government. The colony ship Spirit of Fire was deployed to the planet in 2520; this would be the ship's last mission before it was appropriated by the UNSC Navy as a combat support vessel. Verent was glassed during the Human-Covenant War when the Covenant attacked the planet. Only a small portion of Verent's population escaped aboard fleeing transport ships.
Linda Pravdin, a future Spartan-II supersoldier, was born on Verent on March 19, 2511. The planet was also the birthplace of Luther Mann and his family, who narrowly escaped Verent's destruction at the hands of the Covenant and fled to Earth.
