History & Background (Dossier)
Muchison was the touchstone of the Psionics Suppressions. In 818 a mob stormed the then prestigious Murchison School of Mental Excellence, killing several of the students and staff. The failure of the local government and Imperial troops to keep order incited a rebellion from a combined psionics and non-psionic citizens force. What followed was several days of bloody street fighting and months of guerrilla activities which, despite the efforts of Imperial forces, spread throughout the subsector. Most of these events are now forgotten by the local populace.
