History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Violante owned by a consortium of wealthy nobles from Deneb Sector, whose ancestors, foreseeing a time when the spinward regions of the Imperium would be heavily populated, decided to invest in an unspoiled paradise.

The world population consists of landowners and their families (about 30% of whom live elsewhere for part of the year), supervisory staff, technicians, and servants. [2] The world was parceled into estates with strict controls on population and land use.[3]

Oberlindes Lines and Imperiallines maintain offices at Violante starport. [4]

Historical Data[edit]

Violante was invaded by Kforuzeng allied forces in 1119, and these were still present when the world was declared fait accompli in 1132. The ruling human nobles cut a deal with the corsairs that created a joint power structure. The conflict caused the abandonment of several estates, and these were sold to human and Vargr refugees fleeing Virus. In recent years, these new immigrants have chafed against the governments tight controls over economic development, and guerrilla fighting has erupted in certain regions, prompting Regency intervention. The divisions on the world are primarily class oriented, with poorer immigrant Vargr and Humans allied against the joint Human/Vargr power structure.
