Asmara was a Unified Earth Government outer colony[note 1] in an unspecified system.[1]


Sometime before 2530,[2] a battle took place on Asmara, which involved Gage Yevgenny's team of Orbital Drop Shock Troopers. Mason was one of ten ODST's who suffered a fatal wound after being attacked by a Sangheili wielding a Energy Sword. The Sanghelli was later killed by the ODST, Gage, by a point-blank shot with a Rocket Launcher.[3] The colony was ultimately glassed.[2]

Known ResidentsEdit
