The Domain 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 Domain system is located near the Rastaban and Suk II systems.[1][2]

System History[edit]

Domain was settled during or shortly before the Age of War, and was a member of the Lyran Commonwealth by the end of that era.[3][4]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Clan Invasion[edit]

Domain was invaded by Clan Wolf in January 3052 as part of Operation Revival's Fifth Wave. At the time the planet was defended by the First Knights of St. Cameron, along with the First and Second Domain Militia Brigades. As devout disciples of House Cameron the Knights were at first unsure whether to fight the Clans or honor these descendants of the SLDF, but in the end they decided to stay true to their contract with the Federated Commonwealth. When the 352nd Assault Cluster made their landing the Knights confronted them on the Cesswarn Plain but, outmaneuvered and outclassed, were forced to retreat towards the Kusson Mountains. Before they could reach safety the Knights were outflanked at the Zazz River, suffering further losses. The unit was finally destroyed in the last battle at the capital city Kusson, but though they had opportunity to do so the survivors did not retreat off-world. Their exact fate is unknown, with one of the more popular theories being that they actually joined Clan Wolf.[32]

Jihad[edit]

Clan Wolf used the attacks on the Lyran Alliance launched by Clan Jade Falcon during the Jihad to launch their own series of planetary conquests, typically shadowing the Jade Falcon advance. A wave of attacks during the first week of October 3069 saw the Wolves capture Domain, along with Jabuka, La Grave, Orkney and Rasalgethi.[37]
