What Remains is one of several short stories in Halo: Fractures - Extraordinary Tales from the Halo Canon.
- “This story takes place immediately following the mysterious and tragic events that transpired in Halo 5: Guardians on the glassed colony of Meridian - a world that had fallen after a series of unrelenting Covenant attacks that stretched from 2548 to 2551 (Halo 2: Anniversary era), shortly before the end of the war.”
- The opening identifies Evelyn as the woman who says the Halo 5: Guardians line: "Hello? Can anyone hear me? I'm at Meridian Station. Everyone's dead. Governor Sloan isn't here. I... please? Is there anyone left here but me?".
