The Pel Avena Cluster is a group of stars that forms part of the Demon Cluster.

Details / Specifications[edit]

The Pel Avena Cluster is named for the Pel Avena system and its orange giant primary star. It straddles the border between the Demon's Eye and Orret Subsectors in Far Home Sector and lies on the rimward edge of the Demon's Eye Rift. Its worlds are accessible by conventional jump-1 vessels and it links to the Star Lane network through the Pador-Peset Spur. The cluster has been inhabited for millennia and has a rich and complex history and many ancient traditions.
