Colony 6 is the only other Homs settlement other than Colony 9. Positioned above the leg, the colony rests on the Bionis' Upper Leg. This is the home of both Sharla and Juju, along with many NPC's that were displaced, some of which have yet to be encountered.
 Return to Colony 6
Prior to the Mechon Assault on Colony 9, the Mechon launched an attack on Colony 6. Despite the best efforts of the Colony 6 Defence Force, the Colony was overrun by a Mechon force led by Xord. This drove Sharla and Juju to evacuate the colony along with elderly Homs and others that were unable to join the fighting; the Defence Force covered their escape.
While Shulk and Reyn set out for Colony 6 when they first left Colony 9, and eventually with Sharla in the group, the first visit to Colony 6 is merely a trip into the Ether Mine to confront Xord. The mine is located directly below the colony, and they won't face the brunt of the Mechon forces via the mine.
Exiting the Ether Mine after their rescue of Juju and confronting Xord, Shulk and company are ambushed by Metal Face and a number of Mechon, some of which Faced Mechon resembling Xord. At this point Dickson distracts Metal Face with a well-placed shot at its feet, and signals Dunban to charge, the former usable in your active party for this battle while Dunban joins you permanently.
While the numbers may have seemed to be even, Metal Face and the Mechon forces retreat when unexpectedly attacked by a Telethia. Thanks to a vision of a place they'd never been at the top of the Bionis called Prison Island, the party sets off for Satorl Marsh, with Dickson, Juju and Otharon in tow as guests.
 Post-Mechonis Core
Immediately after fleeing Mechonis Core, the party is attacked by a horde of Telethia twice: once in the air and a second time once returning to Colony 6. The party struggles to repel the attack until Shulk rejoins the group, Monado Replica in hand. Together, with his friends, they repel the Telethia attack and the two attacking members of The Trinity retreat.
While the party returns to Prison Island, the Telethia attack Colony 6 again. However, the Allied Force receives a major assist from the Face Mechon, who are now on the side of the survivors, helping to turn the tide in the favor of the Allied Force.
In both Colony 6 and the Ether Mine, the rank of the crystals that are obtained from the Ether Deposits starts at 2, but will increase as the Nature Level of Colony 6 is increased during Colony 6 Reconstruction.
