Planetary History[edit]

Star League[edit]

During the final years of the Star League, Mara was the host to a Star League Defense Force garrison.[50]

Third Succession War[edit]

Mara was attacked by the DCMS in 3015 with two regiments of Dieron Regulars and a regiment of the Third Benjamin Regulars. The Benjamin regulars, commanded by the Warlord of Benjamin were instrumental in the capture of the planet from the Federated Suns. When the Dieron Regulars were pinned down on Mara, a battalion of the Benjamin Regulars loaded up on their DropShips while under fire, maneuvering to the other side of the Davion forces and redeploying there. This took the opposing forces off guard, and let them split them apart, saving the Dieron Regulars from further losses and sealing the fate of the planet.[21]

The Dark Age[edit]

On the 13th of December 3132 forces from the Federated Suns launched a raid against Mara.[51] The raiders consisted of elements of the Robinson Rangers, led by Erik Sandoval-Groell, who was attempting to claim the system for the Federated Suns. The planetary militia were commanded by a younger cousin of Erik's, Christine Sandoval, and fought off the Rangers; the militia were themselves contemplating switching loyalties to the Draconis Combine.[52]
