Plaza for the Tyran Dead

The Plaza right before the battle against Karn.

"Did their duty. Perished with honor. The body dies. The deed endures. They found honor in war here a defender of the COG at last rests. Steel true. Blade straight. Departed from the dwelling of those gone before. They died so that we might live. In death. Finally, Peace."
— The engraving on the main tombs

The Plaza for the Tyran Dead was a memorial in Halvo Bay for Tyran Gears who were killed during the Pendulum Wars. The plaza had onyx slabs bearing the names of Gears who had died in famous battles, including the Siege of Anvil Gate and the Battle of Aspho Fields. During the Destruction of Halvo Bay, the Plaza was the sight of a battle between Locust and Coalition of Ordered Governments, with Col.Ezra Loomis and Kilo Squad killing General Karn. The battle caused heavy damage to the plaza, with several memorial slabs being destroyed and many more damaged.

Behind the ScenesEdit

GOWJ CourthouseVista

Concept art of the Plaza for the Tyran Dead.

  • Some character names were left out of the memorials such as Samuel K. Byrne because they would have required additional research for legal reasons, which also meant that a good number of names were swapped out.[1]
