System Information
X:Y Coordinates 452.156 : 102.526[e]

The Crestoblus system was home to at least one habitable world and as at 3145 was located in the Raven Alliance.[1][2]

System Description[edit]

The Crestoblus system is located near the Dormandaine and Kennard systems.[1][2]

System History[edit]

The Crestoblus system was colonised at some point prior to the end of the Age of War and was a member of the Outworlds Alliance by the end of the era.[3]

Political Affiliation[edit]

Planetary History[edit]

Reunification War[edit]

In the late 26th century as the Star League war against the Taurian Concordat escalated and the Star League began a campaign against the Magistracy of Canopus, Grigori Avellar, President of the Outworlds Alliance, and Alexander Davion, First Prince of the Federated Suns, concluded a secret agreement named the Tancredi Accord that was signed on New Avalon on the 5th of June 2581. This agreement saw the Alliance pledge twelve under-developed but water-rich Alliance worlds to the Federated suns in exchange for covert military aid - including supplying the Pitcairn Legion - and a pledge to support a fair peace solution for the Alliance within the Star League Council.[55]

One of the worlds due to be ceded to the Federated Suns was Crestoblus, which at the time was a world on the border between the Outworlds Alliance and the Federated Suns. The Star League invaded the Alliance in 2581, with the invasion force - named the Outworlds Alliance Task Force - consisting of two corps of Star League Defense Force troops supported by forces from the Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery, all under the command of General Amos Forlough. By 2582, Forlough's plan for a quick resolution to the war had been frustrated several times by Alliance forces, including the Pitcairn Legion, and the SLDF and Combine troops had begun an escalating series of war crimes against the civilian population of worlds occupied or contested by the task force. In addition to this, Forlough's plan to conquer the Alliance had changed, and appeared to be reducing the shared border between the Federated Suns and the Alliance.[56]

Alexander Davion had responded by mobilizing AFFS forces in the Draconis March and dispatching his youngest son, Lawrence Davion, to meet with Ambassador Considine of the Outworlds Alliance on Hazelhurst. Lawrence Davion had already spent months or years negotiating between both states in the lead up to the Tancredi Accord, and the two negotiators came to an agreement allowing AFFS forces to garrison a number of Alliance worlds just a single day before forces from the Star League reached the first of these worlds. AFFS troops took up positions occupying Bastrop along with Diboll, Hazelhurst, Inner End and Pajarito between March and May 2582, and the First Prince declared all five worlds to be Federated Suns protectorates. This outraged Forlough, who protested violently to Ian Cameron alongside other Star League generals, but the First Lord ruled the matter closed.[56]

Forlough's campaign ground to a halt in late 2582 after Coordinator Hehiro Kurita withdrew supplies and units intended to support the entire Outworlds Alliance Task Force and instead used them to occupy the Alliance worlds of Kazanka, Nexus Ri and Zlatousi; however, by the end of 2582, it appeared that Forlough would be able to continue his campaign early in the new year. Alexander Davion responded by deploying troops to two more worlds within the Alliance, Crestoblus and Kinkaid II. Crestoblus was another world that was due to be ceded to the Federated Suns under the terms of the Tancredi Accord, and both the militia forces and the planetary chairman willingly accepted the Davion "occupation" as a means for preventing the consequences visited on other Alliance worlds by invading Star League or Combine troops.[7]

Crestoblus would be garrisoned by Federated Suns forces until the end of the war in 2585; unlike the majority of the worlds covered by the Tancredi Accord, Crestoblus wasn't ceded to the Federated Suns under the terms of the peace treaty signed on the 1st of August 2585, and would remain an Outworlds Alliance world throughout the Star League era.[8]
