Kittery Prefecture was established in 3072 by Devlin Stone and other warriors after they liberated its worlds from the Word of Blake.


In 3071, Devlin Stone escaped from a Word of Blake reeducation camp on Kittery – RBMU 105 – in the company of Professor David Lear. Together, they organized a local resistance against Word of Blake forces that was finally able to destroy the Blakist organization on Kittery by the end of that year. By 3072, Stone led a force that liberated a number of nearby worlds from the grip of the Jihad. These worlds eventually joined to form Kittery Prefecture.[1]

When word started spreading about this group of planets that were being liberated from the control of the Blakists, Victor Steiner-Davion believed that this idea of a prefecture was the work of a bandit-king looking to create their own power within the Inner Sphere. In October of 3073, Victor and Stone met on of Tukayyid, where Devlin told him what he was doing and how he was going to do it. Victor had to decide whether he was going to stop Stone or get out of his way. Victor decided to get out of his way, to let Stone restructure the Inner Sphere to allow for peace. Victor knew that society was going to collapse because of the Word of Blake attacks, and restructuring the way society had worked for hundreds of years was the only way to bring peace to the Inner Sphere.[2] Kittery Prefecture became a model for the government structures that Stone implemented when he formed the Republic of the Sphere as part of the Republic Formation Treaty.[1]
