The Wazan system was home to at least one habitable world or construct and as at 3145 was located in the Sarna Commonality of the Capellan Confederation.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Wazan system is located near the Old Kentucky and Phact systems.[3]

System History[edit]

The Wazan system was settled during or shortly after the First Exodus from Terra and was a member of the Sarna Supremacy prior to the foundation of the Capellan Confederation in the mid-twenty-fourth century.[4]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

First Succession War[edit]

Having secured a number of worlds from the remains of the Terran Hegemony, Captain-General Kenyon Marik deployed ten regiments from the Marik Militia brigade to launch an invasion of the Capellan Confederation; their goal was to "clear a route ten parsecs wide to Sarna." Both Corey and Wazan fell quickly to the Marik Militia forces, with few of the Capellan garrisons offering much resistance.[12]

Chancellor Barbara Liao was unwilling to cede control of the worlds easily, however; she launched a counterattack against the world of New Delos, which was a Free Worlds League Military staging area, and put blockades in place over both the Corey and Wazan systems, as well as ordering an attack on Calloway VI in 2780. These efforts were despite Kenyon Marik ordering his forces to conduct attacks that saw the worlds of Hall, Ingersoll, New Canton and Outreach firebombed in retaliation for the New Delos attack and in an effort to disrupt the Capellan Confederation Armed Forces efforts to send reinforcements to Corey and Wazan.[12]

The Capellan siege of both Corey and Wazan ended when FWLM forces in the Calloway system detected and ambushed the Capellan forces attempting to launch their attack, leading to several years where the war went almost completely in favour of House Marik.[12]
