History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Jael is a gas giant moon located in Arcturus Subsector of the Solomani Rim. The system is a member of the Imperium and contains a Way Station. Jael is the subsector capital.

Jael was only thinly settled during the Rule of Man. During the Long Night Jael was part of the Arcturus Federation.

After the Solomani Rim War, Jael was made subsector capital and a nexus of the Imperial Xboat system. This has brought a great deal of trade and Imperial investment to the planet, but the layers of local bureaucracy have blunted any economic windfall. As a result Jael has suffered from social unrest driven by various individualist and libertarian movements.
