The Obelisk as portrayed in the back cover of The Fall of Hyperion.

The Obelisk is one of the Time Tombs on the planet Hyperion.



The purpose of the Obelisk, even after the opening of the Time Tombs, remains unknown. One popular theory suggests that the Obelisk contains a Shrike army, to be unleashed at some future date. Another suggests something to do with the Templars.[1]
