The Cahokia system was home to at least one habitable world, Cahokia IV, and as at 3145 was located in the Markesan Operational Area of the Crucis March within the Federated Suns.[2][3]

System Description[edit]

The Cahokia system is located near the Northfield and Sodus systems.[2][3]

System History[edit]

The Cahokia system was settled during the First Exodus from Terra[4] and by the end of the Age of War Cahokia was a part of the Federated Suns.[5]

Cahokia IV - more commonly known simply as Cahokia - is the fourth planet in the Cahokia system and has a single moon named Sequoia. Cahokia has been home to a manufacturing plant operated by Achernar BattleMechs.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

Early History[edit]

Cahokia was originally settled for the large amount of mineral resources available in the crust. Despite the tainted atmosphere, these minerals were so valuable that mining companies were willing to invest the capital needed to exploit the world.[1]

First Succession War[edit]

Cahokia was invaded during the second half of the major invasion into the Federated Suns launched by the Draconis Combine in May 2791.[6]

The Jihad[edit]

In 3079 most of the mining was handled by remotely operated MiningMechs; a factory operated by Achernar BattleMechs on Cahokia had originally produced MiningMechs, but by the end of the Jihad was expanding its production lines to support the production of military equipment as well.[1]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Geography[edit]

Cahokia has three continents named Albui, Peoria and Tamaroa but is only marginally habitable for humans.[1]

Planetary Locations[edit]

  • Chicago: the location of the Achernar BattleMechs facility on Peoria.[1]
  • Illiniwek: the planetary capital city, located on Peoria.[1]
