Planetary History[edit]

The Age of War[edit]

In 2427 the Lyran Commonwealth launched another campaign against the Free Worlds League, beginning with landing troops on Bolan. The Lyran forces seized Bolan and dug in, while further attacks captured the League worlds of Dixie and Kamenz, leading the Free Worlds League Parliament to disband the War Powers Act and install Terrence Marik as Captain-General in response. Terrence Marik was an intelligent military leader and launched two counterattacks on Bolan, one in 2427 and one five years later in 2432, but despite destroying a significant number of Lyran units in each assault he was unable to recapture Bolan.[3]

Terrence stepped down in 2441, preferring to let another of the Marik family take the title of Captain-General and with it perhaps see more successes than he had; after a brief internal struggle within the family, his brother Peter Marik II became Captain-General, and successfully recaptured both Bolan and Kamenz that same year.[3]

Succession Wars[edit]

During the First Succession War, Kamenz was the target of a Lyran raid in 2789 in which Carl Marik, eldest son of reigning Captain-General Kenyon Marik, was killed.[27] The planet was invaded by the Lyran Commonwealth in 2796 during the Bolan Thumb campaign and fell in January the following year.[8] [9]

Dark Age and ilClan Era[edit]

After centuries under Lyran rule, Kamenz was taken by the Eighth Free Worlds Guards in March 3146.[28]

On January 4th, 3151 Kamenz suffered a minor intelligence-gathering raid by the First Bolan Jaegers, who briefly clashed with the Eighth Guards before departing.[29]
