The Diboll system was home to at least one habitable world[1][2] and as at 3145 was located in the Raven Alliance.[3][4]

System Description[edit]

The Diboll system is located near the Broaddus and Pajarito systems.[3][4]

System History[edit]

The Diboll system was settled at some point during or shortly prior to the Age of War and had been incorporated into the Outworlds Alliance by the time the Star League was founded.[5][6][7]

Planetary History[edit]

Reunification War[edit]

In the late twenty-sixth century as the Star League war against the Taurian Concordat escalated and the Star League began a campaign against the Magistracy of Canopus, Grigori Avellar, President of the Outworlds Alliance, and Alexander Davion, First Prince of the Federated Suns, concluded a secret agreement named the Tancredi Accord that was signed on New Avalon on the 5th of June 2581. This agreement saw the Alliance pledge twelve under-developed but water-rich Alliance worlds to the Federated suns in exchange for covert military aid - including supplying the Pitcairn Legion - and a pledge to support a fair peace solution for the Alliance within the Star League Council.[1]

One of the worlds due to be ceded to the Federated Suns was Diboll, which at the time was a world on the border between the Outworlds Alliance and the Federated Suns. The Star League invaded the Alliance in 2581, with the invasion force - named the Outworlds Alliance Task Force - consisting of two corps of Star League Defense Force troops supported by forces from the Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery, all under the command of General Amos Forlough. By 2582, Forlough's plan for a quick resolution to the war had been frustrated several times by Alliance forces, including the Pitcairn Legion, and the SLDF and Combine troops had begun an escalating series of war crimes against the civilian population of worlds occupied or contested by the task force. In addition to this, Forlough's plan to conquer the Alliance had changed, and appeared to be reducing the shared border between the Federated Suns and the Alliance.[2]

Alexander Davion responded by mobilizing AFFS forces in the Draconis March and dispatching his youngest son, Lawrence Davion, to meet with Ambassador Considine of the Outworlds Alliance on Hazelhurst. Lawrence Davion had already spent months or years negotiating between both states in the lead up to the Tancredi Accord, and the two negotiators came to an agreement allowing AFFS forces to garrison a number of Alliance worlds just a single day before forces from the Star League reached the first of these worlds. AFFS troops took up positions occupying Diboll along with Bastrop, Hazelhurst, Inner End and Pajarito between March and May 2582, and the First Prince declared all five worlds to be Federated Suns protectorates. This outraged Forlough, who protested violently to Ian Cameron alongside other Star League generals, but the First Lord ruled the matter closed.[2]

On the 1st of August 2585 Diboll was formally ceded to the Federated Suns along with 8 other worlds as a part of the terms laid out within the Treaty of Cerberus.[9]
