According to an apocryphal source,[43] the planet Toffen is situated at the innermost end of the system's life zone, and has a rather warm climate accordingly. Lacking mineral resources it had initially been ignored for colonisation, and was only terraformed when Terran Hegemony enterprises went looking for new projects close to Terra in the later Star League era. Even by 3054 it remains a largely agrarian world with little industry.

In accordance with the world's nature, its meagre population is largely made up of isolationist loners living on scattered farms. In an attempt to strengthen the economy, Clan Ghost Bear imported workers and new machinery and tried to implement new farming methods. They also aimed to turn the planet into a large supply depot by virtue of its proximity to the Tukayyid truce line. This caused an uprising in 3053 that had to be quelled with force of arms.

Planetary History[edit]

Star League Era[edit]

At some point in or around 2765 Toffen III was raided by the Sixth Lyran Guards, with the Sixth detonating a nuclear weapon in the planet's upper atmosphere. The Sixth's use of a nuclear weapon was subsequently investigated by the Star League to determine if it was a violation of the rules of warfare.[44]

Clan Invasion[edit]

During the Clan Invasion, Toffen was attacked by Clan Ghost Bear in March 3052. The 332nd Assault Cluster deployed the 469th Assault Trinary to destroy the defending 3rd and 8th Toffen Guards, garrison forces amounting to two 'Mech companies and an infantry regiment. Gambling on the idea that the Clans would not risk damaging the cities they had come to conquer, the green Toffen Guards made their stand at the Dell Reservoir, which stood above the planet's major metropolitan centers. However, when confronted by only a single Trinary, the defenders grew confident and advanced to engage them...with predictable consequences. After easily routing the Toffen Guards, the 469th then chased them to the abandoned Longueil power plant three kilometers away, where the infantry took cover among the abundant, large metal cylinders and secretly planted explosives. Frustrated by the enemy's continued resistance, the Ghost Bears took to opening every old generator in their search for the enemy while Toffen soldiers slipped away a few at a time out of the main building. Suspicious of a trap, Star Captain Pinter Hall ordered the Trinary out of the plant just before it exploded. While the angry Ghost Bear warriors hunted down the remaining defenders, many escaped and went to ground. Since then, occasional flare-ups of violence from the survivors have caused trouble for the Clan garrison forces.[45]
