[3132] A somewhat cold world, colonists were drawn to Komephoros by the promise of abundant natural
resources trapped beneath its partially frozen surface. Unfortunately, the first settlers sent to this world vanished
without a trace, their fate unknown until a second colony ship was launched to the world nearly a decade later.
Finding no sign of the original expedition's JumpShip, the second expedition assumed its predecessor had simply
misjumped until, after setting up a settlement on the temperate shores of the equatorial Marksenia continent, a
scouting party dispatched to the southern continent of Calvinar picked up a very weak, automated distress signal,
originating from what appeared to be a frozen lake. Further investigation eventually uncovered the grisly remains
of the first colonial expedition, which was apparently washed out in a freakish disaster caused when a rogue
asteroid struck the nearby ocean with sufficient force to generate a wave that flooded the valley their settlement
had been established in. When the planet then entered its three-year-long winter cycle, the newly formed lake
froze over, and subsequent snowfall eventually buried even the colonists' DropShip from satellite scans. To this
day, local legends say the lake, dubbed Luega del Condenado (Lake of the Damned), is haunted by the spirits of
the lost colonists, and no modern settlements have been established within 300 kilometers of the site.

Over the centuries after the fall of the Star League, Komephoros traded hands a few times between Houses
Steiner and Kurita, with many of its mining and ore-processing facilities damaged during each shift in control.
Bypassed during the Jihad, however, the planet's industrial infrastructure was in excellent shape when the world
was ceded to Devlin Stone's newborn Republic. The capital city of Komephoros is located on Marksenia's east
coast, and is also home to the planet's primary spaceport. Bristalle, largest city on the northern continent of
Jasonri, boasts a secondary spaceport and the corporate headquarters of Kamlarr Enterprises, a subsidiary of
Bannson Universal Unlimited, which runs several specialized mining rigs located throughout the north polar region.

Komephoros was originally part of the Draconis Combine until the creation of The Republic.  Komephoros
became part of Prefecture IX 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] Komephoros was released from the control of The Republic.

After being released from The Republic, Komephoros joined the Lyons Skye Territory.
