The Devin system was home to at least one habitable world and as at 3145 was located in the Clan Jade Falcon Occupation Zone.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Devin system was located close to the Apolakkia and Baker 3 systems.[1][2]

System History[edit]

The Devin system was settled by the Lyran Commonwealth during the Star League era at some point after the end of the Reunification War.[3][4]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Star League Era[edit]

During the Amaris Civil War, Rim Worlds Republic naval units clashed with SLDF Battleships in the Devin system. A Texas-class Warship was lost in this battle and crashed into the surface of Devin. The hulk broke up in Devin's atmosphere and left series of large craters and a large mountain of metal debris on the surface. The wreckage became a huge planetary salvage yard, known as the Boneyard.[23]

Clan Invasion Era[edit]

In 3050, Clan Jade Falcon arrived in orbit above Devin and challenged its defenders to a Trial of Possession for the planet. Devin's defenders consisted of two battalions of combat vehicles, the First and Second Devin Armored Battalions, who chose to fight the Falcons in the debris fields of the Boneyard. The metal debris of the Boneyard Slowed the progress of the Jade Falcon First Falcon Striker Cluster, with their MAD rendered useless. The Devin Armored Battalions were destroyed after forcing the elite Clan MechWarriors into point-blank range, but not before destroying two Stars-worth of OmniMechs themselves.[24][25]
