New Alexandria was a metropolitan city located at Eposz on the human colony world of Reach.[2]

HistoryEdit

Human-Covenant WarEdit

During the Raid on New Alexandria, it became the target of a Covenant attack during the Fall of Reach in 2552, and was defended by Noble Team[3]and the UNSC Army.

During the Evacuation of New Alexandria, The units 4 Charlie 27, 7 Delta 19 along with another unit were tasked with destroying Covenant Communications Jammers throuout the city. After Noble Six's assistance, civilian transports successfully evacuated the city.

Most of the city was ultimately glassed by the Covenant.

Post-War EraEdit

In 2610, the city had been resettled to a degree and a memorial to Noble Team was built in Hősök tere.[4]

ArchitectureEdit

The general terrain of New Alexandria really decides how it's architecture is. It forces the general design to be focused more on flowing structures. Many lower storied buildings face's slant upwards along the hill that it is usually built onto. Many plazas are built onto buildings that have many benches and planters and trees. Some roofs had entire greenspaces on them.[5] Skyscrapers soar up and around the city creating a large skyline. The most common two colours applied most buildings in the city are grayish/white and blackish/blue. Blackish/blue applies to the glass that appears on almost all of the buildings in the city. The grayish/white applies to the metal and concrete used for the construction of the buildings

GovernmentEdit

The main body of governance is the New Alexandria City Council.[6] Not much is known about their specific powers as council.

TransitEdit

The main form of transit in New Alexandria is walking as there are huge amounts of pedestrian infrastructure built for it, such as the Concourses. As well there is a MagLev system that wraps around the city.[5] So far, no roads have been seen so far in the city. There does appear to be some sort of boat transport from the city (at least for goods) as there are docks at the base of the Traxus Tower.[5] Three space elevators were located near the city.[7]

TriviaEdit

  • The city of New Alexandria is most likely named after the Egyptian city of Alexandria which was the location of a very large library.
  • The city of New Alexandria is featured in the levels Exodus and New Alexandria in Halo: Reach.
  • The metropolitan area of New Alexandria spans about 15 km x 6 km, making it a total of about 90 km2, albeit most of this is not exploratory due to game restrictions.
  • The packaging of the Halo: Reach Legendary Edition states that the statue enclosed inside is a replica of the war memorial in New Alexandria, indicating the city being rebuilt during recolonization. This is also supported by the fact that many of its inhabitants left the city before the glassing and may have returned to rebuild it.
  • The city is never confirmed to have been completely glassed, as the area around the playable portion of the level is still intact even with the most recent bombardment at the end of the level, because several cruisers left mid-level it is likely that the Covenant were finishing their involvement with the city.
