Historical Data[edit]

Cthonia was one of the earliest Terran Confederation colonies. During the late Rule of Man Cthonia grew to prominence as a trading hub and industrial center and retained this influence even during the Long Night, when it established a protectorate over nearby worlds. The Protectorate of Cthonia was an important pocket empire during this period, and its legacy continues to echo in the contemporary ORDA.

  • Cthonia was an early adherent to the Solomani Movement, sending a large delegation to the first Movement meeting on Terra (Solomani Rim 1827) in 685.
  • In 1014 Cthonia founded ORDA, a mutual defense alliance consisting of 13 Confederation border worlds. Cthonia leads ORDA and has also used this position to gain economic and political advantages over its neighboring worlds. ORDA maintains a large, sophisticated fleet against the Imperial threat, independent of Confederation control. Although legally entitled to such a navy by the Charter, Confederation officials are concerned about the size of the ORDA armada. However, the potential expansion of Cthonian neuro-psychological techniques to other Solomani worlds has so far impelled the Confederation to leave Cthonia in peace.
