Planetary History[edit]

Succession Wars[edit]

Basically a giant rock in space, Le Blanc was settled by miners looking for mineral wealth. Just barely enough atmosphere existed to allow the miners to breathe without a respirator.[1] Lucerne was invaded during the first half of the major invasion into the Federated Suns launched by the Draconis Combine in May 2787.[12]

At the beginning of the Succession Wars, Le Blanc's fate was forever altered when the AFFS High Command relocated the headquarters of the Kentares PDZ to Le Blanc following the Kentares Massacre. The increased military and civilian shipping that arrived as a result of this move also brought an increased number of mercenaries looking for work. Though not as prominent as Galatea, the on-world mercenary trade ended after the Fourth Succession War with the Combine's "Death to Mercenaries" order.[1]

During the Third Succession War Le Blanc was the scene of a complicated incident involving the Black Widow Company, Michael Hasek-Davion, the Bounty Hunter and a family of high-tech skilled individuals ensued.[45]

Agriculture has always been difficult on Le Blanc, with foodstuffs mostly being imported. The world's industry is limited to mining and supporting the equipment that makes mining possible. Educational opportunities are also very limited, mostly appearing on military bases.[1]
