Hesiod was a gas giant located in the 23 Librae star system, orbiting farther out than the former UNSC Outer Colony of Madrigal. The planet was orbited by the moon Metisette and trailed by Trojan Asteroids in the L5 position.
Metisette was the home of a Covenant installation called The Redoubt. It was run by a Kig-Yar named Reth as breeding grounds for Unggoy.
The Trojan Asteroids were used by the Insurrectionists as a hide-out, nicknamed The Rubble. In 2528 when Madrigal was attacked by the Covenant, the remaining survivors fled to The Rubble.
