Among the barren worlds and planetesimals of the metal-rich Dhjarlapanor system's five suns, scattered colonies of Vacules survived the fall of the Empire of Humanity and developed a unique culture. Using low thrust, unpressurized craft, they plied the complex gravitational gradients between the suns, burrowing and mining to support themselves, establishing outposts on the system's flotsam of rock and metal. After recontact with a Merchant Guild expedition in 6155CE, the Dhjarlapanor system soon became a refuge for Risen mechanical sentients fleeing persecution in the Star Kingdoms.
