Owing to its location at the nexus of several well-traveled
slipstream routes, Acheron was for centuries the site
of a major High Guard Lancer base and logistics center.
Seized by the Nietzscheans at the start of their insurrection,
the planet has been held by them ever since and used
by the Drago-Kazov Pride to control access to important
sections of the Andromeda Galaxy. Any travelers passing
through Cestus Martialis must pay tribute to Drago-Kazov
or face the wrath of the powerful missile batteries
seeded throughout the system. The planet's small population
(Drago-Kazov Nietzscheans and their human servants)
exists mainly to collect revenue and enforce the blockade.
