Iesha has an oceanic geography of a liquid other than water such as ammonia, methane, hydrocarbons, or other exotic liquids. The system supports a population in the hundreds of millions. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Khandi Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Iesha, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and the fiefdom of a viscount. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world contains an Imperial Scout Base, capable of handling Scout Service starships and personnel. This is the homeworld of the Eliyoh, a Minor Race. During the Long Night this world was named Inbe.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Iesha is a member of the Rusadaa Trace.

Iesha is almost identical in it physical characteristics with Cruachan (Dagudashaag 1813). The differences are gradually widening, as Cruachan is in orbit around a pair of stars one of which is a warmer main-sequence M-class star. The rate of divergence indicates that the planets were identical a little over a quarter of a million years ago.

Native Sophont: Eliyoh[edit]

The Eliyoh are a non-human Minor Race who joined the Imperium in 247. To that race the symbology of the Imperial starburst was unimpressive. The Eliyoh vision centered in the far infrared, which resulted in distinction between the official colors of black and yellow being impossible. So the Empress Porfiria declared that the symbol would have no official color.

History and background[edit]

Iesha now supports a large population, all involved to some degree with the mineral extraction from the seas and atmosphere.

Point of Interest: Ancients Site[edit]

In the early 600s a small number of Ancients artifacts were found, examined at the local IISS base, then shipped to the research center on Medurma (Dagudashaag 2124).
