Angel II is the second planet in the Angell system and is home to a number of industrial facilities belonging to companies such as Irian BattleMechs Unlimited.[2]

Planetary History[edit]

Settled in the 23rd century by explorers from the Marik Commonwealth to access radium and cesium,[2] Angel II is a world with a stark social structure. The water supplies on Angell II are tainted with a chemical called citrium, which is poisonous in large doses. As a result the population has always been reliant on technology, iceships, and fresh water shipments. This is reflected in the society: Those who own water purification technology are on top, while those who are dependent on it are at the bottom. The Succession Wars opened the gap even more as technology was destroyed. This gap was illustrated in 3019 when House Steiner launched a raid and the lower classes fought with the invaders against the planetary government.[1]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Geography[edit]

Angel II has three continents named Gabriel, Michael and Peter.[2]
