Summary

Once described by Sergeant Major Avery Johnson as “a pair of squids kissing”, the Unyielding Hierophant’s role in the Covenant military was as important as its design was unique. Smaller, but similar in nature to the architecture of High Charity, the Unyielding Hierophant consisted of a pair of elongated, tear-drop structures with a narrow port and docks extending from each end. The interior of the massive space station was constructed to resemble a terrestrial setting, complete with animals, foliage, and slender corridors for internal transportation. At over 11 miles (18 kilometers) in length, it could field more than 500 Covenant ships, hundreds of thousands of troops, and enough firepower to destroy any ship within the UNSC.

DESTRUCTION

Led by Master Chief, a team of Spartan-II supersoldiers infiltrated the Unyielding Hierophant using a Covenant dropship. Once on the station, Spartan Blue Team soon learned that the Covenant intended to not only invade Earth, but to use this fleet to do so. Using a ruse to draw the outlying Covenant vessels toward the center of the station, the Spartans overloaded Unyielding Hierophant’s reactor, resulting in the destruction of the station and nearly all 500 surrounding ships.
