History and Background[edit]

Lakea was settled in 600’s, leading up to the Imperial Civil War. Before her settlement, she was most famous as a refuelling stop for the Majestic Circuit of Emperor Anguistus (arrived day 295, departed day 297, of the year 357 of the Imperial Era). These three days are still celebrated: Emperor Anguistus remains the only Emperor to have extensively toured the Imperial Empty Quarter, and remains the favored Emperor of Emptyheads everywhere.

The system has prospered quite pleasantly since the Civil War, and is a local center of technological goods and large capital equipment, including starships. Unlike the other systems, Lakea is on the X-Boat route, and is the place to get the latest news. A highly sophisticated form of American Indian culture, closely coupled with the rough democratic and frontier ethics of the early United States, makes Lakea the center of American Indian society within the Empty Quarter.

The system was traditionally guarded by one of the mercenary ‘braves societies’ of the American Indians, but recently one of these societies have chosen to swear fealty to the Imperial Baron (and Great Chief) of Lakea. The Eagle Claw comprises of two Broadswords and two Empress Maravas (retooled for mercenary service): two dedicated SDB boats are expected to be commissioned for their use by day 250 of the year 993 Imperial. There were an increased level of pirate activity in the years 990 - 992, but an Eagle Claw strike at their base of operations (such as it was) put an end to it. Current pirate activity is notable for its absence.
