Planetary History[edit]

Reunification War[edit]

By the end of the Age of War Mahrah was a member of the Timbuktu Province of the Rim Worlds Republic.[1] Civil war erupted in the Rim Worlds Republic in 2575, with the factions polarised around those loyal to First Consul Gregory Amaris and those loyal to the Rift Republican Army and the Rim Provisional Government.[34]

The Star League eventually decided to intervene in the civil war in support of Gregory Amaris, and in 2579 assembled Task Force MAILED FIST to help secure Amaris' control over the Rim Worlds Republic. A multinational force headed by the Star League Defense Force, Task Force MAILED FIST was responsible for executing Operation MAILED FIST, the name given to the military intervention. The first wave of attacks focused on securing significant worlds near Apollo,[35] until a destructive raid on Alarion by the 4th Amaris Fusiliers in retaliation prompted the SLDF to alter its initial strategy for the campaign, the focus shifted to reducing Rim Worlds Army concentrations throughout the Republic and the capture of key worlds.[36]

In late 2584 the SLDF changed tactics again; a number of major RWA units had been destroyed or captured, and the focus for the campaign shifted to capturing worlds of strategic importance, but the campaign was slowed by the greatly increased resistance offered by the RWA and local civilian populations, prompted by atrocities performed by the Draconis Auxiliary Corps when they captured Nightwish in mid-2584.[37]

Duke Narinder Selaj of Battle Group Timbuktu assigned two regiments from the Draconis Auxiliary Corps, the First Arkab Legion and Fourth Proserpina Hussars, to the conquest of Mahrah in 2590. The Star League forces successfully took control of Mahrah, defeating the local militia forces, and remained in place as the local garrison until the Draconis Auxiliary Corps was withdrawn from Task Force MAILED FIST in 2591[38] as the various District Warlords of the Draconis Combine attempted to compensate for the erratic actions of Coordinator Leonard Kurita.[39]

Star League Era[edit]

Mahrah was conquered by the Lyran Commonwealth during the 2773-2775 Republic-Commonwealth war,[11] and vanished from records during the 3rd Succession War.[11][14][15]
