The Consolidation of Turin is a Solomani Confederation affiliation of 10 Christian-dominated worlds within Denebola, Ziusudra and Veracruz subsectors in Alpha Crucis Sector.

Goals[edit]

The majority of their citizens follow the Turin rite churches, which include the Turin Church, the Solomani Catholic Church, and the Church of the First Cross.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Consolidation began with a group of religious emigres who fled Terra during the Interstellar Wars. Bearing many relics and cultural icons with them, the Turin settlers never wavered in their piety.

  • During the Long Night, the organization held together an influential pocket empire. In -364 the Declaration of the Consolidation of Turin united several worlds near Turin under the banner of the Church of the First Cross.
  • In 411 the Consolidation launched the brutal Santa Maria Crusade against heretics in Veracruz subsector, which was halted by Imperial diplomacy in 415.
  • In 520 the Consolidation joined the Imperium. Noble titles were granted to leading citizens, with the Archbishop of Turin invested as the Duke of Denobola.

Government & Politics (Leadership)[edit]

The Consolidation consists of the secular heads of state and the religious leaders – archbishops and bishops – of member worlds. The Consolidation is a forum for religious, social, economic and political discussion, and these worlds are close trading partners and also tend to vote together within the Secretariat.

Military & Intelligence (Force Projection)[edit]

The Consolidation has long been the home of the Brotherhood of SenWenclus, an ancient religious order, and the elite fighting force called the Knights of St. George. The Brotherhood and the Knights work hand in hand in spreading their faith across human space. The Brotherhood's priests have often called on the Knights to help "convert" worlds unresponsive to the message. Absolutely committed to their cause, the Knights undergo at least five years of rigorous religious and military schooling.

The worlds of the Consolidation were zealous backers of the Confederation during the Solomani Rim War. During the War, the Knights of St. George stood among the Solomani's fiercest fighters. Even today the inhabitants of the Consolidation tend toward the Purist faction of the Solomani Party, concerned with maintaining the racial purity of Solomani worlds and ensuring the ethnic Solomani retain their dominance over other Human or alien races.

Worlds & Sectors (Astrography)[edit]

The Consolidation is based on Turin in Denebola.
