History & Background (Dossier)
Biter was once a thriving planet with more than 20 million citizens, but a war with Hofud (Spinward Marches 1524) in 419-439 resulted in depopulation and the destruction of its environment. Prior to the Fifth Frontier War Biter was a member of the Sword Worlds Confederation. Despite this alliance the Biter system actually contained an Imperial Scout Base supporting the xboat link to the Five Sisters Subsector.
