History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

In 1062 Corfu's population was stricken with a virulent pathogen known as the Corfu Claw Virus. While not possessing a high lethality rate, the disease was quite debilitating to its sufferers, and the Scout Service interdicted the world to prevent off-world transmission. [3]

In 1117, researchers at the University of Rhylanor developed a vaccine, and the interdiction was raised to amber in 1119. [2]
