The Damian system was home to at least one habitable world or construct and as at 3145 was located in the Rasalhague Province of the Rasalhague Dominion.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Damian system is located near the Santander V and Thule systems.[1][2]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

The Damian system was colonised at some point prior to the end of the Reunification War and by the beginning of the Star League era was a member of the Draconis Combine.[7] It later became a member of the Free Rasalhague Republic following the creation of that state.

Clan Invasion[edit]

Damian was conquered in March 3050 by Clan Ghost Bear as part of the First Wave of Operation REVIVAL. At the time the planet was defended by Black Omen, a mercenary company, against whom the attacking 34th Striker Trinary of the 8th Bear Cuirassiers expected an easy victory. After six days of fruitless searching though it was determined the mercenaries had fled rather than face the might of the Ghost Bears and the planet was declared conquered. In truth, recognizing they could not defeat their opponent in open combat, the mercenaries instead chose to hide, waiting for the main force to pass. The small garrison left behind on Damian was easily overrun when the Black Omen reemerged two months later during the Second Wave of the invasion.[39]

In response to this uprising, the Ghost Bear Clan's entire Beta Galaxy, aboard the WarShip Bear's Den, was dispatched to the planet on 17 May. Within seconds of their arrival however a rogue asteroid struck the ship, not only severely damaging it but destroying one of the attached DropShips and wiping out an entire Cluster. The remaining Beta Galaxy warriors abandoned the Bear's Den and proceed on to Damian, where they succeeded in wiping out Black Omen and returning the planet to Ghost Bear control.[40]

The Jihad[edit]

In March 3076 Damian was the fourth of four Ghost Bear Dominion worlds to be raided by Clan Ice Hellion stragglers after the failed Ice Hellion invasion of the Clan Jade Falcon Occupation Zone several years before. It was on Damian that Rasalhague KungsArmé units finally managed to pin down the raiders.[31][32]
