After the end of the Human-Covenant War, the Swords of Sanghelios, led by former Arbiter Thel 'Vadam, fought for control over the Sangheili homeworld Sanghelios. To try and keep vital assets away from the enemy, 'Vadam sent the CAS-class assault carrier Shadow of Intent, commanded by Rtas 'Vadum, on missions outside of contested space. Later in 2553, the Shadow of Intent was sent to investigate attacks on Sangheili colony worlds, only to discover a ploy by a San'shyuum minister to kill everyone on Sanghelios and win the Great Schism.
