As a distant outpost, Calyx IX received little attention from the
UFP until said neglect made it one of the most favorable places for
black market business in charted space.  By the time the UFP
established major lawkeeping organizations on the planet, it was too
late, and now it's an even struggle between law enforcement and the
crime bosses.       


Latinum-based.  Large and varied mineral deposits and manufacturing
provide the basis of the economy.  Needless to say, business also
thrives on Calyx IX.  Home planet of the business giant, InterStellar
Shipping, which is headed by Theresa Keyrin.

Tech Level:  Modern.


Calyx IX is a large, well-established colony with an unrivaled history 
of organized crime and thriving piracy in various black markets.  It is
largely urbanized;  people crowd together for safety.  Major crime
organizations present include the Thieves' Guild, Assassins' Guild, and
Mercenaries' Guild, (collectively known as the Trinity) and the Orion
Mafia, known as Prota Canna.

As a result, Calyxi are worldly, wary, distrusting, and generally paranoid.
There are few of them who have remained untouched by the crime culture.


Planet originally created for CSO Aelyria Keyrin of the CHESAPEAKE.  For

 -- that was his addition, since he specializes
in Orion (Shrevashal) culture.
