Kemnagii has both an unbreathably thin atmosphere and a lack of surface water making habitation by sophonts difficult. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This world is a satellite of a gas giant or another planet in the system. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Arnakhish Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Kemnagii, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. 20% of the world's population is the Minor Race Chirper. During the Long Night this world was named Kir.

History and background[edit]

Colonized initially by Makhidkarun during the First Imperium, the settlement was deserted for centuries. It was recolonized primarily as a slave depot, transporting thousands of native Chirpers throughout the Vland Sector as personal servants.

With the onslaught of the Long Night the colony was forced to work along side the remaining Chirpers in order to survive. Over the centuries a unique culture developed in which Human children were paired with Chirpers from birth, both then working as a bonded partnership throughout their lives – sharing everything. So deep was this bond that when one dies, the other often committed suicide rather than continue living without their partner.

Then, in 756, Makhidkarun filed for ownership of the planetary resources – a legal battle they won – and returned to strip mine the planet.

By 1115 fewer than a thousand bonded Kemnagii pairs still exist in the outback. Makhidkarun had brought in thousands of offworld workers who treat the natives very badly. Hundreds of complaints have been filed of sophont ill-treatment, but to date nothing has been done. Scientists have estimated if this abuse continues the Kemnagii aborigines and Chirper population with be extinct in less than 20 years.
