Eridanus II is a planet in the 82 Eridanus System, located within the outer colonies. It was a hotbed of United Rebel Front activity, becoming notorious when its Colonial Government was overthrown by a group of insurrectionists that called themselves the People's Occupation Government. The insurrectionist activity would end in the 2530s when the planet was glassed by the Covenant.
It was most notable for being the birthplace of SPARTAN-117, the "savior of humanity."
