Owner History[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Succession Wars[edit]

After the Second Succession War Principia became the seat of the Capellan judicial system after numerous raids on Sian convinced the judiciary to change locations. Present on Principia as a result were special judicial branches to dedicating to handling contractual dealings involving mercenary units in service to the Capellan Confederation.[1]

The warm and temperate climate of Principia was a big draw to members of the Capellan nobility, many of whom also owned holdings on the planet to allow them to maintain a home away from home.[1]

The Jihad[edit]

On the 7th of March 3071 Principia was targeted by raiders from the nearby Duchy of Andurien, although the attack ultimately failed.[10]

During their time stationed on Principia the Kraken Unleashed mercenary unit worked with the local shipwright industry to develop a new infantry capability for themselves: Submersible Mechanized Infantry. The Kraken Unleashed infantry made extensive use of locally-manufactured 20-ton Harpoon 5-man parasubmersibles, which were small enough to be transported aboard other transport vessels and rapidly redeployed anywhere onworld. This gave the Kraken Unleashed a new infantry force capable of repelling even a determined underwater BattleMech attack.[11]
