Utgard was the capital city, as well as the largest city on the planet Harvest.[2]


At some point during 2468, the UNSC Skidbladnir finished up the construction of the infrastructure of Harvest, and Utgard itself, its power supply was given to Utgard to help power the city.[1]

The city was glassed by the Covenant ship Rapid Conversion in 2525.

Emergency ServicesEdit

The city's main police force was the Utgard Constabulary.[3] Part of the police force's job was to guard Governor Nils Thune's office.[4]



  • Utgard, like many of Harvest's cities, rivers, seas, and other locations, comes from Norse Mythology. It literally means "Outyard" and was the abode of the giants, enemy of the Gods.
