Planet HistoryEdit

Since the late Third Succession War the world of Kaesong was part of Duke Hassid Ricol's duchy.[1]

Clan InvasionEdit

The planet was conquered by Clan Ghost Bear in December 3051, part of the fifth wave of the renewed Clan Invasion. Prior to the Ghost Bear's attack the Blue Lightning mercenary company was in-system but their JumpShip experienced technical difficulties, stranding them on the planet; when the planetary government pleaded with them to come to their aid, the mercenaries had little choice. This caused more harm than good though as, knowing they faced dezgra mercenaries, Star Colonel Dane Jorgensson skipped the bidding process entirely and sent in the elite Trinary Command of his 14th Battle Cluster to hunt the enemy down. They pursued Blue Lighting to the streets of Vedsan and destroyed the mercenaries utterly.[2]

Owner HistoryEdit


The later published German edition of Decision at Thunder Rift translates Chekaar with Kaesong. Therefore the name Chekaar is likely related to this system.[1]
