Battle of Metisette

Thel 'Vadam

Thel 'Vadamee, shown here during the Battle of Installation 05 in 2552, was the commander of the Covenant forces sent by the Prophet of Regret to investigate the Kig-Yar activity in the Rubble, c. 2535.




The Battle of Metisette occurred in the immediate aftermath of the Battle of the Rubble in 2535, taking place on Metisette, the nearby moon of the gas giant Hesiod.  The battle was an assault by UNSC and local Rubble forces on the moon's surface to destroy the Covenant stronghold and growing Unggoy presence before they could be used to attack the remaining Rubble forces.
