Ilelish is a high-population, industrial world with a billion or more sophonts in population size.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Ilelish is considered by many to be a former Ancients site and many xeno-archaeologists have been busy at work unearthing ancient Droyne remains and other artifacts of what some conjecture was a battleground for the Final War.

  • While this theory is popular with many, there is still considerable dissent within the academic community.

Historical Data[edit]

Ancients Background: The ancestral Suerrat were transported to Ilelish by the Ancients, and were well adapted to their new homeworld’s lush equatorial forests.

First Empire[edit]

The Suerrat eventually developed sub-light drives to colonize nearby worlds and had established a small interstellar state by the time they were contacted by the Vilani during the Ziru Sirka period. Ilelish was conquered during the Consolidation Wars and the Suerrat became a grudging subject race to the Vilani.

Interstellar Wars[edit]

The Suerrat finally revolted in the late Interstellar Wars period, following the Battle of Three Suns (-2224). Their uprising is often seen as one of the final blows to the First Imperium.

Long Night & Third Imperium[edit]

Following the Long Night Ilelish was swiftly absorbed by the growing Third Imperium and became the sector capital.

  • The Ilelish Revolt (418-435) was a popular independence movement that began on Ilelish, but rapidly spread to other high population worlds. The region affected by the Revolt had been going through an economic depression, and it was felt that the Imperium was more interested in conquering new worlds than in supporting the worlds it already had.
  • Worlds in Ilelish sector petitioned the Emperor to establish an autonomous district, on the model of the League of Antares, but the Emperor refused. Following this, Ilelish and several other worlds seceded. The Imperium defeated the revolt, essentially by encircling it, containing it, and squeezing. To create an example, the Emperor ordered the Imperial Navy to sterilize a large portion of the Ilelish equatorial region, which still bears the scars to this day.
