History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Prior to the Third Frontier War, Quar was a Viscounty and part of the County of Jewell.

The world was originally settled by Imperials, but was pronounced independent as a result of the armistice declared after the Third Frontier War. Quar was regained by the Imperium in the Fifth Frontier War. [3]

Although there is no Imperial Subsector Fleet the Quar system is home to an heavily-defended Imperial Naval Base. The base supports a small flotilla of patrol ships that operate in neutral space as well as some intelligence-gathering vessels.

Era: Milieu 1200[edit]

Every other independent world in the League of Spinward States actively petitioned to join. Quar, on the other hand, was actively recruited by the League and only joined after a lengthy courtship, and the League was required to make some concessions to cement the deal. Quar is a very valuable link world connecting the Querion Cluster (and rimward) with the Jewell Covenant (and trailing). It is highly defended, given its extremely exposed position. [4]
