The Elissa system was home to at least one habitable world, Elissa IX,[1] and as at 3145 was located in the Periphery region known as The Barrens.[2][3]

System Description[edit]

The Elissa system is located near the Ferris and Nyserta systems[2][3] and consists of a class F1V primary orbited by at least nine worlds.[1]

System History[edit]

The Elissa system was colonised at some point during or prior to the Star League era, and by the height of the Star League was a member of the Apollo Province of the Rim Worlds Republic.[4][5]

Elissa IX - more commonly known simply as Elissa - is the ninth planet in the system and has a single moon named Miranda.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

Originally settled by people looking to escape from technology, Elissa was subsequently conquered by the Oberon Confederation during the Succession Wars. Allegedly part of the nature preserve that formed the Elysian Fields the Confederation actually strip mined the world for the few resources it offered and brutalized the population. As a result, when Clan Wolf arrived and took the world the population heaved a sign of relief and went back to their own lives.[1]

The Wolves didn't garrison the world once they had captured it. The only thing the world really offered was its position, but even this was better handled through other locations. In 3052 it became the baseworld and repair depot for the Thirty-first Wolf Solahma Cluster as they pursued bandits and pirates through the Periphery. In late 3055 the inhabitants noted that traffic to an abandoned mining facility in the mountains increased dramatically, but didn't alert anyone because they didn't want the Clan leadership to interfere with their lives. Though persistent rumors claimed the Red Corsair was on the world, it wasn't until the Kell Hounds arrived that anyone believed them.[1] October 25, 3055Nelson Geist led the Kell Hounds to the base of the Corsairs. The Kell Hounds and Wolf Khan are surprised to learn that the Thirty-first Wolf Solahma Cluster is in league with the Corsairs.Kell Hounds31st Wolf Solahma Cluster, The CorsairsKell Hound victory, the Red Corsair is killed by Nelson Geist though he dies in the attack.

The world was taken by Clan Hell's Horses sometime during the Jihad. They remained in power through 3085, but by 3086 they had left Elissa completely. In 3087 Elissa joined the Ferris Collective, a group of several systems that had been abandoned by the Horses.[6]
