The Fianna system was home to at least habitable world and as at 3145 was located in the Wolf Empire.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Fianna system is located near the Rahne and Sarpsborg systems.[1][2]

System History[edit]

The Fianna system was colonised during the First Exodus from Terra[3] and was a member of the Federation of Skye prior to the formation of the Lyran Commonwealth.[4]

Planetary History[edit]

Fianna Massacre[edit]

In 3017, the planet was contested between the Lyran Commonwealth and the Free Worlds League, with a standoff in place. A battalion of the Oberon Guards commanded by Redjack Ryan was hired to garrison Lysidas. Faced with civil protesters, the mostly inexperienced MechWarriors eventually opened fire on the protesters. This led to a vicious circle of escalation, with reprisals causing more unrest and leading to more acts of sabotage and terrorism against the garrison force. Ryan's forces burned entire cities and damaged a large fusion reactor but eventually had to retreat into an old Star League bunker that held chemical weapons. They threatened to use those weapons against the planet if the government would not provide them with a JumpShip to leave the system. The government gave in, but as they were about to leave the planet with the last Leopard DropShip the last elements of Ryan's unit were overrun by an angry mob and the chemical weapons were set free. This, possibly exacerbated by the damaged reactor, poisoned the atmosphere of half the planet and killed millions.[16]
