History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

In the Zhodani Consulate this world was named Zhdienshdo.

This world is a base for a large contingent of the elite Consular Guard and its position is somewhat unique as a result. The CG units based are not apart 12th Fleet's command structure and answer directly to the Subsector Council on Cronor. This arrangement indicates that this force was intended, during the long Imperial-Zhodani conflict, to prevent "cultural infection" of colonial governments and the local military structure by outside Imperial influences. Despite the relaxation of tensions with the Imperials, this garrison remains in place and has been increasingly vital in the face of the Zhodani Exodus.
