Was the Halo from Charum Hakkor also used to sterilize the San'Shyuum homeworld? Its hinted a few times within the book, but never verified. I believe Bornstellar assumes so, but the "prodigal" halo , as it arrives at the Capital, is later described as having been missing since Charum Hakkor. Hoping you can clarify, as it makes Mendicant's arrival and interaction with Fabr much more significant.

Good record-keeping, Sean! There are a number of Halos out there, but I'll look up the license plate on this one and see where it's been...
