Hellas is an agricultural world with an ideal environment for producing food from plants, animals, or other forms. The system has a population between 100,000 and 10 million sophonts. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Ushra Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Hellas, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and the fiefdom of a baron. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. Less than 10% of the world's population is the Major Race Aslan. During the Long Night this world was named Sas.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Hellas is a member of the Dagudashaag Main.

The main city on Hellas, Kendricks-Alaal, developed around an atmospheric terraforming tower which was built to remove a sulphur taint from the atmosphere. The Tower was later decommissioned, stripped of the terraforming machinery, and refitted as a residential area. It also serves as an atmospheric and environmental monitoring station, taking readings from the immediate locale and receiving data from a series of remote sensing satellites.

The Aslan make up a small but significant percentage of the total population (about 2%) on Hellas for it is estimated that this 2% hold approximately 22% of the total wealth.

History and background[edit]

Hellas was unpopulated until a survey by the Xenobiology unit of the Free University of Ushra in 677 identified Fillaslopu as a potential valuable food source. The success of the pilot farms ensured the influx of prospective farmers who set about trying to tame the frozen plains of Hellas.
