The Illustrious Pupil was a specialized CSO-class supercarrier designed to transport and deploy experimental weapons systems. It served as the flagship for Covenant forces during the Battle of Roleath in 2529, where it dealt considerable damage to UNSC forces until it was eventually destroyed in when the SPARTAN-II supersoldier James-007 reversed the polarity of a teleportation spire linked to the ship, which the Paris-class heavy frigate UNSC Hell or High Water fired a Shiva nuclear missile into. The missile was teleported into the Pupil, detonating within it and destabilizing its plasma reactor, destroying it.
