To avoid capture by the Star League, a group of patriots from the Taurian Concordat fled into deep space. In 2691, under the leadership of Angelina Logan they settled on the planet Lothario, which was later discovered to be rich in metals. Over time the League expanded deeper into the Periphery to form a seven-member confederation. With the Logan family at its head it slowly grew into a small Periphery state.
