When Hanse Davion struck at the Capellan Confederation in 3028 using the combined might and wealth of the
newly announced Federated Commonwealth and began the conflict known as the Forth Succession War, the
planet Hsien, along with several other worlds, was temporarily cut off from its parent realm, the Capellan
Confederation. When Pavel Ridzik, a top commander in the military of the Confederation, turned traitor to his
nation and convinced those separate worlds to join him in forming the Tikonov Free Republic, Davion spared the
fledgling nation his bloody conflict. Shortly after the end of the Forth Succession War, Tikonov voted to join its
fortunes to the might of the FedCom. Hsien remained peaceful after the war and eventually gained a limited
propensity as House Steiner encouraged its lumber and canning industries. The Marik-Liao invasion abruptly
ended the planet's slow economic growth.

The only unit stationed on Hsien at the onset of the invasion was the Second F-C RCT, a unit considered
fanatically loyal to House Davion. Though determined to hold the world against the Liao assault, the Second RCT
quickly fell to the First and Second regiments of McCarron's Armored Cavalry. Marshal Irene Thome led the
Second in a retreat offworld to Elgin, where she hoped to refit and resupply and return to Hsien. Unfortunately
for the Second, the Free Worlds League mercenary unit Swann's Cavaliers, sent to aid the Capellan rebellion on
Elgin, destroyed all of the Second but the command lance.

As soon as the units of McCarron's Armored Cavalry established the rule of Capellan governor Robert Thomay,
they moved on to a new assignment. Their departure gave Baron Luis Montong V, the scion of the only family on
Hsien of noble rank, the courage to reject Hsien's "upstart government" and declare his continuing loyalty to the
Federated Commonwealth.

When Governor Thomay travelled to the island continent of Chone to meet with Baron Montong and enlist that
powerful man's support for the new government, the baron treated the governor with great respect. He pledged
to the governor the loyalty of his people and his personal cooperation, thereby guaranteeing Hsien's complete
subjugation to House Liao. When the Capellan turned to leave, the baron drew his laser pistol and shot Governor
Thomay in the back, then ordered his troops to throw the governor's entourage in prison. Baron Montong then
proclaimed that, regardless of the decision the rest of the planet chose to make, his holdings still belonged to the
Federated Commonwealth and that his loyalty remained with the Archon Prince.

The remaining populace of Hsien quickly severed all connection to Montong and most fully supported the new
Capellan governor elected a short time later, though only one month after Baron Montong's declaration the
province of Dendeez seceded from the Capellan government. All three realms continue to exist, though they
plague each other with daily skirmishes. The time and energy the respective governments devote to devising
outrageous and complex trade compacts have slowed the exchange of goods to a trickle, but the situation is not
yet critical. Though Baron Montong sends repeated pleas to Archon-Prince Steiner-Davion for assistance in his
efforts to smash the two rival realms, Prince Victor has not answered those requests. The balance of power on
Hsien seems likely to remain stable for the foreseeable future.

*[3132]Hsien was one of the first worlds Devlin Stone turned his attention on after the formation of The
Republic.  Its history of constant war fare and strife needed to be ended.  In 3082 Devlin Stone sent his military
might to the world of Hsien.  After a short half year long battle between the Capellan forces and The Republic
military all of the existing governors, councilors and the planetary legate were killed or captured.  The world was
forced to submit to the might and will of The Republic.

Hsien was also one of the first worlds used in Stone's integration policy.  It took over fourty years for the
populace to find peace, but it did.

Eventually an organization calling itself Hisen Republic Guards was formed.  It became the eyes and ears of the
police force, and the military forces on the world.  Through brutal force any one in the populace that was not a
staunch supporter of the Republic was imprisoned, tried, found guilty and executed.  Through the use of the HRG
the world of Hisen became so fully entrenched in the Republic that its senators were given a wide birth and often
seated at the heads of committees.

[3135] The Fortress Republic was created and Hisen was released to its own devices.  The HRG became the
world's police force and the military adopted Republic colors and raised the standard of The Republic.  The
world declared for The Republic and has made it clear that it is a safe haven for anyone finding themselves
stranded in these difficult times.

[3139] The Capellan Confederation claims territorial right to Hisen and sends their troops to invade and
reestablish control over the world.  Planetary Legate Hargrave sends a diplomat to House Liao with orders for
the Capellans to recall their military or it will be seen as an act of aggression towards the Republic.  The
Capellans are also informed that Hisen stands for The Republic and is not part of their conquests.  Any military
aggression will be met with swift retribution and that House Liao will never control the planet.  The ambassador
was sent back with a note to Legate Hargrave, it contained only three words, "We are coming".  

Hargrave, supported by the senate and populace, has declared martial law on the entire planet.  Under this
military law all industrial facilities have turned towards production of war goods and weapons.  The colleges have
been given orders to further military research.

[3140] April 16, Capellan WarShips have arrived and are in orbit above the planet.  Although they are prepared
for a conflict they stand alone, against the might of a House.  Hisen is on the brink of war and its future is
uncertain.  Legate Hargrave dispatched a message to the Wolfs Dragoons for support.  Will they be able to hold
out until assistance arrives? **

Hisen was originally part of the Capellan Confederation until the creation of The Republic. Hisen became part of
Prefecture VI 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] Hisen was released from the control of The Republic.

*After being released from The Republic, Hisen found itself standing alone against an empire that has claimed
territorial rights to the planet.  Hisen stands for The Republic, but stands alone.

[3140] April 16, Capellan WarShips move into Hisen space to retake the planet.  The governemnt, and the
populace of Hisen stand ready for battle.  The Wolfs Dragoons have been called for, will they arrive in time?
