The Al Na'ir system is home to at least one inhabited world, Al Na'ir V, as well as asteroid belts exploited by manufacturing concerns.[2] As at 3145 Al Na'ir was the Prefecture capital of the Al Na'ir Prefecture within the Dieron Military District of the Draconis Combine.[3][4]

System Description[edit]

The Al Na'ir system consists of five planets orbiting a single class A9II primary star.[1] The system also has more than one asteroid belt, and at least one defense manufacturer - Yori 'Mech Works - was operating production facilities and lines within the asteroid belts at one point.[2] During the thirty-first century the Al Na'ir had a working recharge station located at the zenith jump point within the system.[1]

System History[edit]

The Al Na'ir system was settled at some point during the twenty-fifth century.[5]

Al Nair V - commonly referred to simply as Al Na'ir - is the fifth planet in the Al Na'ir system and has at various times in history served as the local Prefecture capital world for both the Draconis Combine and the Republic of the Sphere. Al Na'ir has been home to a number of major industrial facilities, some of which included facilities located on asteroid belts within the system. Al Na'ir has a single moon named Taliswan.[1][2]

Planetary History[edit]

Age of War[edit]

Al Na'ir V was originally settled by the Azami in the twenty-fifth century[5] to gain access to the rich resources available on the planet.[2]

First Succession War[edit]

When the Dragon took control of Al Na'ir and integrated the Arkab Legions into the Arm of the Dragon, the Combine created the School for Cultural Investigation on Al Na'ir's surface. This school was popular with many members of the Combine nobility and higher-educational system as it was one of the few places that the Combine approved of "foreigners".[2]

Clan Invasion Era[edit]

The vast mineral wealth and relatively open nature of the system made it a key strategic asset for the Dragon by the 3050's. Though raided many times by the Federated Suns and later the Federated Commonwealth, the Dragon retained control of the system and the population had suffered relatively few attacks.

Jihad[edit]

During the Jihad, however, that changed forever. The Word of Blake sent large numbers of AeroSpace Fighter-carrying DropShips and Pocket WarShips to the system. These Blakist units scoured the asteroid belts, destroying the Yori MechWorks assembly lines and inflicting severe losses on the population by destroying their domed cities.[2] By mid-March 3069 Al Na'ir had been conquered by the Blakists and incorporated into the Word of Blake Protectorate.[7]

Having been occupied by the Word of Blake, Al Na'ir was targeted for liberation by the allied coalition assembled by Devlin Stone; coalition forces assaulted Al Na'ir on the 1st of July 3076 as one of four planetary assaults on Protectorate worlds that took place simultaneously, with the other strikes targeting the Rio, Rochelle and Van Diemen IV systems.[8][9]

Dark Age[edit]

After the Jihad Al Na'ir was made the capital world of Prefecture II within the Republic of the Sphere. The Prefecture's capital city was built on Cedar Rock (the largest continent) and named Phoenix. The planet's traditional capital city, Homai-Zaki, was also rebuilt by the Republic and is also located on Cedar Rock.[2]
