Helios
System information
X:Y Coordinates -368.23 : -411.40[e]

The Helios system is an independent system in the rimward and anti-spinward region of the Periphery.[1]

System Description[edit]

The Helios system is located near the Islington and Thraxa systems and lies in the unclaimed territory between the Magistracy of Canopus and Marian Hegemony.[1]

System History[edit]

The Helios system was either settled at some point during the FedCom Civil War,[2][3][4] or was an already-inhabited system that became significant enough during this period for Inner Sphere nations to begin recording its location on maps. Helios vanished from maps during the Dark Age,[1][5] indicating that the system had either been abandoned, depopulated, or rendered too insignificant to merit further recording.

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

In mid-3060s, the Manei Domini made their first alleged appearance on Helios.[22]

Notes[edit]

Helios was added to Battletech universe after the world name was first used by FASA Interactive game, MechAssault.[23]
