Augustine VI—more commonly referred to simply as Augustine, formerly known as planet 2112-8845 A—is the sixth planet in the Augustine system and is a warm, arid world with four moons named Bona, Numidia, Suk Arras and Tagaste.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

Augustine was originally settled by Jesuits as a religious colony. During the Succession Wars nearly two-thirds of the population was killed or driven offworld, and the famous Seminary was destroyed. Though Augustine has retained close ties to the Roman Catholic church, it has also developed a population with a broad variety of religions. A warm, pleasant world, Augustine has seen much of the population loss of the Succession Wars reversed in the thirty-first century as new immigrants arrived.[1]

Kabuko is the northernmost continent and its main industries are based on mining and petrochemicals. The other two continents are devoted to farming and livestock.[1]

The world has been a landhold of the Marik family since the 27th century. The Captain-General's immediate family is often appointed to this world. Alys Roussett-Marik was the world's noble leader before the Jihad forced her off-world. Given the presence of the Marik family and the potential political and religious turmoil it isn't surprising that SAFE had many agents and offices on the world, both overt and discreet.[1]

On the 29th of November 3071 the Marik Commonwealth began a blockade of Augustine.[6][7]
