Cassandra was a SPARTAN-II supersoldier that also participated at the Battle of Earth.
In a previous engagement with the Covenant, a Covenant Flagship bombarded her approximate position with a Plasma Turret, mortally wounding her and vaporizing her armor and completely burning her skin. By an odd dice throw of Lady Luck, she was able to marginally survive, and was taken to the M25L medical station in orbit around Earth, where she underwent corticosteroid and marrow stromal stem cell treatment.
On November 3, 2552, massive numbers of Covenant warships invaded Earth in a stage of the Second Battle of Earth, and she was forced to terminate treatment to make room for large numbers of wounded UNSCDF military personnel, and was involved in some of their treatments. Then, the Forerunner Ship damaged the M25L, jarring it from orbit, and before its planetside crash, Cassandra was able to escape with eight Orbital Drop Shock Troopers in a Bumblebee escape craft and land in Nairobi, Earth.
