Invasion of Draco III

Edward Buck

Draco III was the home world of Edward Buck, shown here prior to the Second Battle of Meridian in 2558, who became an ODST and later Spartan-IV.




The Invasion of Draco III was a Covenant attack on the colony world of Draco III in January 2545.  While the result of the battle was a strategic UNSC victory, most civilians were killed, either during the attack, or when the Covenant rounded up survivors to be hunted by the starving Unggoy and Kig-YarSpartan-IIs, including John-117 and Linda-058 were eventually deployed to rescue any remaining survivors, but none were recovered.



These events are referenced in the novel Halo: New Bloodwhich was the subject of a Halo Book Club on April 28th, 2015.
