[3132] When first discovered, Saffel was a rather cold world at the onset of a minor ice age. The first colonists
reminiscent of their homelands and planned to build cities on the north polar continent of Dovejin, Saffel’s largest
landmass. This frigid land, half-covered in a glacial ice cap, was considered an ideal location due to the large
metal deposits detected during early surveys. Unfortunately, before these rich veins could be tapped, the so-
called Outer Reaches Rebellion broke out, leading to the eventual collapse of the Terran Alliance’s dominion over
its far-flung worlds. With it went the fledgling settlements’ only means of support. Unable to obtain the equipment
necessary to turn their new home into an economically viable system and poorly equipped to handle their sudden,
unasked-for independence as the harsh Saffel winter set in, many of these first colonists perished. By the time the
Terran Hegemony formed nearly 100 years later, the surviving population had migrated to the warmer equatorial
zones, particularly the continents of Awonera and Sophrati. Eking out an existence in the rugged, thickly wooded
plains of these new lands, the scattered communities didn’t know what to make of the arrival of new settlers from
the Hegemony, especially when these newcomers claimed the early cities that had been abandoned by their
forebears. A brief brushfire conflict broke out between the old and new inhabitants of Saffel before the
Hegemony government managed to negotiate a truce. In the heyday of the Star League, Saffel became known as
an exporter of valuable metals, as well as home to the Saffel Medical Institute. Located in the city of Radjik on
Awonera, the SMI developed a revolutionary instrument, the Eligus Diagnoser, which was capable of rapidly
scanning a patient’s body, identifying any known ailments and rendering a diagnosis. Although it was withheld
briefly to prevent a panic in the medical community, as some suspected the device could put doctors out of work,
the eventual unveiling of the Eligus Diagnoser put Saffel on the map, adding valuable medical equipment to the
planet’s list of exports. After the collapse of the Star League, Davion forces promptly seized Saffel and
established the planet as a gathering point for troops in one of the first major campaigns against House Kurita. In
response, the Combine launched a devastating attack in 2787 but failed to capture the planet. Over the following
centuries, Saffel was raided and invaded several times but remained largely under the Davion sunburst until the
Draconis Combine managed to take the planet after the Fourth Succession War. During the Blakist Jihad, the
planet suffered minimal damage save for the destruction of Farwind, a city on the edge of the Dovejin ice cap,
which barracked the small planetary militia. Saffel today is a peaceful world with a modest metal trade and a
subsistence-level agricultural sector. The capital city of Iwanji, located on the southern coast of Dovejin, also
serves as the largest commercial spaceport.

[3132] Saffel was originally part of the Draconis Combine until the creation of The Republic. Saffel became part
of Prefecture II under the control of The Republic. After the fall of the HPG Network Fortress Republic was
created and many of the worlds under its control were set free.
[3135] Saffel was released from the control of The Republic.

After being released from The Republic, Saffel fell under the influence of the Dieron territory.
