The Ghost of Redemption was a CAS-class assault carrier in the Covenant Navy and the capital ship of the Fleet of Steadfast Guard. It was commanded by Fleet Master Tolo 'Zhekamee.


Discovering DaegoEdit

On December 12, 2550, a human civilian freighter which contained the location of the UEG colony world Daego was brought aboard the Ghost of Redemption. Immediately, Tolo 'Zhekamee took the carrier and the Fleet of Steadfast Guard to the planet.

Fall of DaegoEdit

The Ghost of Redemption arrived at Daego several minutes after most of the fleet. As a result, when it exited slipspace, a CCS-class battlecruiser had already been destroyed by the Daego Defense Fleet. The carrier then proceeded to ram Fleet Admiral Mark Ridley's Marathon-class cruiser, the UNSC Last Sunrise, and, with the assistance of the other Covenant ships, destroy the rest of the Daego Defense Fleet.

Not long after the Fleet of Steadfast Guard deployed troops to Daego, the UNSC initiated the Cole Protocol, and all vital data on the planet was destroyed. Enraged, the Covenant forces started bombarding and glassing the surface, killing all the human forces.

Once the glassing was complete, most of the fleet returned to High Charity, while a portion of it and the Ghost of Redemption held position over the planet.

Daego InsertionsEdit

The humans soon returned to Daego to search for a Forerunner weapon known as the Casket. During this search, the Ghost of Redemption and the other ships failed to intercept the UNSC Sword of Giants which slipped through their lines and deployed troops to the planet to locate the Casket. However, the humans' mission was unsuccessful, and the frigate was forced to retreat.

The Ghost of Redemption and the portion of the Fleet of Steadfast Guard remained in position over Daego until further reinforcements arrived, forming a thick defence around the planet, and preventing humanity from ever recapturing it.
