The Wallis system was home to at least one habitable world, Wallis VI, and as at 3145 was located in the Regulan Fiefs.[2][3]

System Description[edit]

The Wallis system is located near the Faleolo and Futuna systems[2][3] and consists of a class M5V primary orbited by at least six planets. During the thirty-first century a recharge station was in place at the zenith jump point.[1]

System History[edit]

The Wallis system was settled during the First Exodus from Terra and was a member of the Principality of Regulus prior to the formation of the Free Worlds League.[4]

Planetary History[edit]

The Jihad[edit]

It was on Wallis on the 22nd of May 3071 that the Second Regulan Hussars were attacked and destroyed by troops originally believed to be from the Free Worlds League Military, but who were later discovered to have been elements of the Forty-ninth Shadow Division in disguise.[6]

Determination at Wallis is set on Wallis and provides a description of Port City, the Bora Valley, and numerous other terrain features.[5]

Wallis VII - more commonly referred to as Vuzar - is the seventh planet in the system.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

It isn't known if Vuzar has a permanent population, but during the thirty-first century wealthy residents of Wallis were known to vacation on Vuzar to escape the high humidity and tropical temperatures of Wallis.[1]

Geography[edit]

Vuzar is a cold world, and is predominantly covered with ice and snow. The equatorial regions of the planet are warmer than the rest of the planet, to the extent that humans can visit the equatorial regions using simple snow suits.[1]
