[3132] With water covering almost all of its surface, and the remainder given over to ten large island masses and
an assortment of smaller chains dominated by volcanoes, Kervil was quickly established as a mining world.
Industries geared toward locating and exploiting the valuable metals churned up by lava flows arose within a
decade of the planet’s colonization. The Ozawa Mercantile Association, a collective of merchants that dominated
the region before the rise of House Kurita and the Draconis Combine, took a liking to Kervil and its vast metal
deposits. Through negotiations with the local government, the Association established its own offices, outposts,
offshore mining rigs and orbital processing centers, maximizing the efficiency of Kervil’s mining operations in
exchange for almost exclusive access to the refined metals.

When the Dragon crushed the Association, these facilities, some damaged by Kuritan attacks, came under
Combine control. At the peak of the Star League, Kervil’s metal industry and orbital refineries became a major
producer of ferro-fibrous armor and endo-steel, used extensively in the manufacture of BattleMechs and other
military vehicles. It was perhaps for this reason that forces sympathetic to the Outworlds Alliance attacked Kervil
during the Reunification War, attempting to demolish the distribution centers on the planet’s surface after crippling
several orbital factories.

A small BattleMech unit stationed on Kervil, part of the SLDF’s 138th BattleMech Division, was all that stood
between the renegade forces and total destruction. The woefully outnumbered SLDF troops put up a brave fight,
first with hit-and-run attacks and later with an assault against one of the renegade DropShips, while waiting for
reinforcements to arrive. Still outnumbered nearly 5 to 1, however, the defenders were forced to fall back to Fort
Steel, their main base near the planetary capital of Iron City.

For three days they held out against a siege by angry renegades; then the enemy troops overwhelmed them and
destroyed the fort and its defenders to the last ’Mech and soldier. This stand, likened to the battle for the Alamo
on Terra, ultimately achieved its goal, as the departing renegades ran full-on into SLDF reinforcement troops on
their way out of the system, losing the entire raiding force to the guns of SLDF WarShips. The brave SLDF
defenders who died at the Battle of Kervil are still remembered today: Fort Steel’s remains are a historic site
open to tourists year-round. This battle, as it happens, was the only major military action seen on Kervil; even the
SLDF liberation from Amaris the Usurper was comparatively bloodless. The planet was virtually ignored
throughout the Succession Wars and the Jihad, save for some minor raids that destroyed the advanced armor
metal plants in orbit and several military-grade metal refineries on the surface.

Today, despite these losses, mining and metallurgy remain Kervil’s greatest industries. Iron City, still the planetary
capital, is located on Greater Domain, Kervil’s largest island continent. Greater Domain and seven other large
island masses—Brahn, Northland, Satella and Lesser Domain in the north and Bellas Major, Bellas Minor and
Karnophia in the south—support the majority of the planet’s population and industries. The north polar continent
of Freiholt and the equatorial continent of Infernus are sparsely settled, due to the extreme cold and lack of
minerals on Freiholt and the chain of active volcanoes on Infernus.

[3132] Junction was originally part of the Draconis Combine. After the creation of The Republic it remained so.
After the fall of the HPG Network Fortress Republic was created and many of the worlds under its control were
set free.
[3135] Junction witnessed the release of many planets from the control of The Republic.

[3135] Junction remained part of the Draconis Combine, House Kurita, after Fortress Republic was created.
