The Charleston system was home to at least one habitable world or construct and as at 3145 was an independent system located in the Periphery close to the borders of the Calderon Protectorate and the June Operational Area of the Periphery March of the Federated Suns.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Charleston system is located near the Cadela and Klenkar systems.[3][4][1][2]

System History[edit]

The Charleston system was either colonised at some point after the Third Succession War or was an already-inhabited system that became significant enough during this period to be noted on maps by Inner Sphere nations.[3][5][6]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

On the 23rd of May 3072 forces from the Calderon Protectorate raided a number of Taurian Concordat worlds, including Charleston.[34][35] The war between the Taurian Concordat and Federated Suns officially ended on the 2nd of July 3080 in the aftermath of Operation MATADOR, but the fortunes of the Concordat continued to decline. Many worlds, lacking confidence in the Concordat's central government, seceded from the Concordat; Tyrrhenia was the first of the Concordat worlds to do so,[36] leaving the Concordat even before the Jihad had begun, along with the world of Hellespont soon after.[18][26] Between mid-3079 and late 3085 six more worlds seceded: Argos, Carthage, Carvajal, Celano, Micros III and Mirfak, and Governor Brenna Sieben of Charleston was debating declaring Charleston independent as well.[36]
