Chi Rho was a UEG colony world in the Ectanus 45 system.

HistoryEdit

In 2535, during the Human-Covenant war, following the loss of most of the Outer Colonies, refugees had started flooding the planet and all available space was being used for victory gardens and refugee camps.[1] Vice Admiral Jean Mawikizi resolved to make a stand against the Covenant on Chi Rho, digging in deep within the planet's crust to survive a glassing attack, forcing the Covenant to come down and flush them out man-to-man.[2] Eventually the planet did come under attack.[3]

Physical AspectsEdit

TopographyEdit

Chi Rho had conditions very similar to Earth.[4] It is unknown if this is due to terraforming or if it Chi Rho naturally had these conditions.

AstronomyEdit

Chi Rho has at least one moon, Eiro. It's tidally locked to Chi Rho.[5]

TriviaEdit

  • The name "Chi Rho" could be another biblical reference in Halo. The Catholic symbol of the letter X and letter P written as a single letter is called chi-rho. The symbol stands for the first two letters of Christ in Greek. It's also the reason Christmas can be abbreviated as Xmas.
