The Battle of Charybdis IX was a battle fought between the United Nations Space Command and the Covenant in 2535.[1]

Battle

The Covenant fleet arrived at Charybdis IX overwhelming the three UNSC Destroyers in orbit. The UNSC Midsummer Night, a Light Frigate, was nearby as well, but did not take part in the combat. Two of the UNSC Destroyers were almost immediately eliminated, but the UNSC Do You Feel Lucky? was disabled.

Thel 'Vadamee proceeded to board the Do You Feel Lucky?, in search of the already wiped navigation data. The Covenant boarders consisted of a group of Grunts and 'Vadamee's handpicked team of Zealots, including Jora 'Konaree, Zhar, Saal, and Veer. The humans onboard were unable to hold the Covenant back, and the Covenant boarders sustained only light casualties (although 'Konaree was wounded). The Covenant proceeded to glass the planet as the Insurrectionists on the planet vainly attempted to resist.

Aftermath

Charybdis IX was glassed, and its entire population killed. The Midsummer Night was able to retreat from the battle without arousing any Covenant suspicion.

Following the battle, the High Prophet of Regret dispatched Thel 'Vadamee to 23 Librae to find and eliminate the source of Covenant Weaponry modified for Human use.
