History and Background[edit]

An isolated rich world in the Yashodhan Subsector, Enola was originally settled as a research facility in the early years of the Third Imperium. Early on, the administration of the original research facility controlled the original colony as well. The practice, though changed somewhat over the years, still remains today, as the Administration of Enola makes decisions for the world's population of twenty million human and Vargr. The current Lord Administrator, Baron Ferreli von Lazarus, has been an eager supporter of Majestic Lines, in the hopes that enhanced contact with the Third Imperium will promote growth for his people.

While Enola was as isolated as Bravo (Empty Quarter 1520), it’s path from Imperial rule to independence was quite different. Within the first century of the Imperial Era, there were only a few attempts to settle the abandoned and empty worlds in Imperial Space. The most notable of these, the Enola Venture, was a research/colony project funded by interests in Fornast Sector. The starships of the Enola Venture made a remarkable crossing of six void parsecs in 50 Imperial. The names of the five major colonial vessels - The Wanderer, Over the Top, Vapour Drawings, Cafayate, and Sagres - is recited across the Imperial Empty Quarter even today.

However, the difficulty in maintaining regular contact (in a TL 12/jump3 era of poor knowledge of proper Void navigation procedures) caused the Imperium to renounce Imperial authority over Enola in 70 Imperial. This is among the few times the Imperium has ever done so willingly, especially in a time and place of rapid territorial expansion. In the end, however, the vague and uncertain benefits were outweighed by the hard, irrefutable cost in replacing lost ships and crewmen trying to reach or return from that system.

There are certain similarities between this world and Chimalis (Empty Quarter 3224), being both worlds split between American Indians and Suedzuk Vargr.
