World Culture[edit]

The first facility in the Procyon system was a Terran naval refueling station, established just before the First Interstellar War. For decades, the Fenris colony was the first and last line of defense for the Terran Confederation. Over time Fenris developed a martial culture with a unique institution of Lodges, each of which functions as recreation, mutual-support club, secret society, political party, and citizen militia all rolled into one. Fenris was an ardent supporter of the Solomani Movement, and after Imperial forces captured the world the Lodge system provided a highly resilient means to promote Solomani sympathies.
