The Magistracy of Canopus is an interstellar nation located in the Periphery. The Magistracy is a matriarchal society led by a Magestrix of the Centrella family. The capital is in the city of Crimson on Canopus.



Magistracy Armed Forces

The Magistracy Armed Forces are designed mostly around the idea of maneuvering to defeat an enemy. Considered light but swift, they make up for their lack of individual firepower by training to act as cohesive units.

The Magistracy Naval Reserve

The Magistracy Naval Reserve is based around the Magestrix destroyer, missile-armed Leopards, fighter-carrying Unions, and the small Sabre AeroSpace Fighter. The massive Thunderbird OmniFighters are used to pin and destroy enemy ships while the Sabres harass the enemy flanks.

The Magistracy Land Forces

The ground forces are composed mostly of medium BattleMechs, primarily the swift Shadow Hawk OmniMech, supported by the equally swift Rommel OmniTank. Lighter designs are primarily used for scouting of harassing, while the heavier Marauders are the hammers of the Magistracy military. The rare Marauder IIs in the Magistracy military, purchased from the Taurian Concordat, are only brought into action rarely, but have stopped more than one Marik or Liao raid in their tracks.
