Great North

The Great North was an armed group operating within the Draconis Combine during the Star League era.[1]

History[edit]

The Great North was made up of ethnic Rasalhagian individuals who were wanted for committing political and cultural crimes within the Draconis Combine. However, due to the oppressive nature of the Combine, the crimes were as minor as failing to display proper public decorum. But, these small crimes carried extreme penalties so individuals fled rather than face punishment.[2]

Considering that the group was armed, it is suspected that they engaged in operations against the Combine for their actions. Though it is possible, it was merely a group trying to help individuals escape the Combine.

It is unknown how long the group was in operation nor their breadth, but the group had bases in the Outpost, New Bergen and St. John systems during the later years of the Star League. These bases were destroyed by the 47th Royal Mechanized Infantry Division of the Star League Defense Force in 2764. The SLDF troops thought these bases were manned by Periphery separatists. The Division nearly mutinied when they discovered the truth.[3]
