Owner History

Planetary Info

Originally settled by people looking to escape from technology, Elissa was conquered by the Oberon Confederation. Allegedly part of the nature preserve that formed the Elysian Fields the Confederation actually strip mined the world for the few resources it offered and brutalized the population. As a result, when Clan Wolf arrived and took the world the population heaved a sign of relief and went back to their own lives.[1]

The Wolves didn't garrison the world once they had captured it. The only thing the world really offered was its position, but even this was better handled through other locations. In 3052 it became the baseworld and repair depot for the 31st Wolf Solahma Cluster as they pursued bandits and pirates through the Periphery. In late 3055 the inhabitants noted that traffic to an abandoned mining facility in the mountains increased dramatically, but didn't alert anyone because they didn't want the Clan leadership to interfere with their lives. Though persistent rumors claimed the Red Corsair was on the world, it wasn't until the Kell Hounds arrived that anyone believed them.[1] October 25, 3055Nelson Geist led the Kell Hounds to the base of the Corsairs. The Kell Hounds and Wolf Khan are surprised to learn that the 31st Wolf Solahma Cluster is in league with the Corsairs.Kell Hounds31st Wolf Solahma Cluster, The CorsairsKell Hound victory, the Red Corsair is killed by Nelson Geist though he dies in the attack.
