The Fjaldr system was the location of a Capellan Confederation colony world, and as of 2750 was located in the Sian Commonality of the Confederation. Lost to, or abandoned by, the Confederation in the Succession Wars (though apparently not entirely depopulated) and in what was now considered the Periphery, it was said to be a well-connected hub near the Inner Sphere as of ca. 3025.
The Fjaldr system was colonised at some point during the Star League era after the end of the Reunification War. It was noted that the original Capellan colony was lost over the course of the Succession Wars. After the Confederation gradually abandoned its poorly developed periphery holdings in the region, a new periphery nation–the Aurigan Coalition–formed in 2910 from a pre-existing (if tenuous) trade network. Fjaldr last appeared on a 3022 map that showed it to be part of the Aurigan Coalition, a weak political entity itself teetering on the brink of collapse at the time; the Fjaldr system vanished from maps afterwards,  indicating that the system had been abandoned or depopulated, or otherwise was considered too insignificant or too thinly settled to warrant mention anymore.

Fjaldr is a barren planet enveloped by ice and constantly swept by winds and snowfall. Kilometer-wide crevasses in the ice mantle held the initial Capellan colony, which was primarily built underground. Rich mineral resourced, combined with being considered a hub world, ensured Fjaldr's survival even when the colony as such failed, or at least was abandoned by the Confederation.
According to the apocryphal BattleTech (video game) Fjaldr, as of the early 31st century, has only a token population running mining operations. A pirate band occupied the Fjaldr system in 3019, but was eliminated during a three-month campaign by a combined force of the Arano Royal Guard and the Markham's Marauders mercenary unit.

Distance in light years, closest systems first:
- Fjaldr happens to match the (apocryphal) Capellan mining world of Tibolt so closely that it could actually be construed to be the same world:
Both are described/depicted as harsh ice worlds colonized only for the purpose of mining their valuable ores, and as of ca. 3025 the Capellan Confederation still considered the Tibolt mining operation theirs while acknowledging that the world was actually beyond their borders; further, the Tibolt system was established to be located near both the Capellan and Federated Suns periphery border at the time, which places it within or at least very close to Aurigan Coalition territory.
