The Fatima 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 Fatima system is located near the Al Hillah and Morningside systems.[3]

System History[edit]

The Fatima system was colonised during the First Exodus from Terra and was a member of the Tamar Pact prior to the formation of the Lyran Commonwealth.[4][5][6]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Exodus[edit]

When the Tamar family founded the interstellar state known as the Tamar Pact in 2235, Fatima was one of the worlds that formed a part of the Pact and represented one border of the realm, which stretched as far as Suk II and Nox.[5][34]

Age of War[edit]

In 2414 the Notre Dame Cathedral on Fatima was the setting for the wedding of Archon Katherine Steiner and Duke Deven Reynolds of Fatima.[7] Despite Katherine Steiner's popularity, her decision to pass rule of the Commonwealth on to Alistair Steiner in 2445 caused riots on Fatima when Alistair declared his son, Michael Steiner, to be Archon-Designate, rather than his half-brother Michael Reynolds.[8][35] Duke Reynolds espoused no desire to rule more than Fatima, and Alistair trusted his half-brother completely, leading him to dismiss the riots as a minor incident probably caused by anarchists or agents from the Draconis Combine.[8]

In 2467 Alistair Steiner was assassinated and the initial evidence pointed to Michael Reynolds. Michael Steiner assumed the Archonship but held off on sentencing the Duke, convinced that the Duke was capable of being behind such an act; the lack of action caused civil unrest in a nation already reeling with shock over the assassination. Fortunately for Duke Reynolds, the LIC conducted a special investigation that identified the true perpetrator of the plot as Graf Alfonse DeSimon, a minor nobleman from Fatima. DeSimon had attempted to frame Duke Reynolds out of a desire for revenge; Duke Reynolds had previously responded to DeSimon's abuse of his workers by stripping the Graf of his titles and lands. DeSimon and his accomplices were executed, but their deaths couldn't prevent the Commonwealth from slipping into a period that became known later as the Dark Years because of the sense of uncertainty and loss arising from the assassination and its immediate aftermath.[36]

Third Succession War[edit]

In the last half of 3021 Fatima was raided by Sorenson's Sabres, a company of the 5th Sword of Light. The DCMS unit raided the city of Nuevo Lisbon.[37]
