The system was named Akina, by Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko after her wife Shimizu-Motoyoshi Akina (清水本吉明菜).

History and Background

Akina was originally colonized under the control of the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet and protection until YE 29 when the Mishhuvurthyar conquered the Bard Cluster. It was then under the control of the Mishhuvurthyar until their defeat in YE 30, when Akina was released to the Yamatai Star Empire's control as part of the Intergalactic Armistice Agreement of YE 30 (IAA) signed at the International Relations Conference of YE 30.

After the Mishhuvurthyar were driven off the system was once again under the control of the Yamatai Star Empire . The system was under the control of the Fourth Fleet, and it was re-colonized primarily by former Yamatai Star Empire soldiers. There are many sites visible from orbit where the Mishhuvurthyar were conducting massive strip mining, they are slowly being reclaimed by the environment.

In YE 32, the City of Taisho was expanded by an influx of colonists from the outer planets of the Bard Cluster. The Fourth Fleet cannibalizing material and equipment from their damaged ships they created a fort on the planet and stationed soldiers on the planet. The Fourth Fleet assisted the planet's colonists to develop Militias, they equipped them with obsolete/surplus equipment. There was a Frontier Starport established by the fleet for civilian and military traffic.

In YE 33, the Fourth Fleet installed a 4SF Standard "Guriddo" System Deployment to protect the planet from space. There is a Frontier Fort on the planet to defend the surface.

In YE 44, with the Arrival of the Norians in the Kikyo Sector, the refugee towns on Akina III were reopened to accommodate the people of Tsenlan. At the same time, the planet was also selected to become their permanent home and plans for cities like Asarthotar began to take shape. Tetsuya Eitan (Airwin Caeyara) was selected to become the system's Senator to represent the system on the Senate of Yamatai.

In YE 45.8 Cheol Eitan became the Aestaesys of Tsenlan, and won the election for the Senate of Yamatai seat for the Akina System.2)

Presence of the Star Army

The Akina System is patrolled by the Fourth Fleet of the Type 38 Hinomaru Insignia Star Army of Yamatai. In YE 33 a 4SF Standard "Guriddo" System Deployment was deployed to assist in the defense of the system.

Akina I

Akina I is a rocky terrestrial planet with a dense toxic atmosphere with sulfuric acid clouds that are undergoing a constant greenhouse effect. Geological surveys conducted by Fifth Expeditionary Fleet when the system was first explored in YE 28 determined the world would be ideal for an automated mining, and possibly dome-covered colony constructions. No development has been done to date, but in YE 44, the Lo'Ken Institute Lo'ken Institute. has several mining facilities planned.

Akina II

Akina II is another rocky terrestrial planet, it has a thin unbreathable atmosphere of mostly carbon dioxide. Similar to Akina I, it was surveyed by the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet when the system was first discovered in YE 28. The surveys determined the world would be idea for mining as well as possible terraforming. As of YE 44, the Lo'Ken Institute Lo'ken Institute. has several mining facilities and other projects planned.


The planet Akina, or Akina III, is the jewel of this system. It is a Yamatai-Like Planet with a number of different biomes. This planet's atmosphere is nitrogen, oxygen, and trace elements. The polar regions are ice covered, which covers approximately twenty-five percent of the surface. Oceans cover seventy-nine percent of the surface. Land masses account for twenty-one percent of the surface, there are a number of landmasses and numerous chains of islands. Plant life is abundant. Oceans support a variety of marine life forms. A variety of simple animals are present on the land masses. The planet's relatively cool climate made it a perfect choice for the settlement of the Tsenlan Norians following the Arrival of the Norians to the Kikyo Sector in YE 44.

Fort Akina

Fort Akina is a Frontier Fort operated by the Type 38 Hinomaru Insignia Star Army of Yamatai. It was established in YE 32.

City of Taisho

Taisho 3) is located wedged up against a mountain on the temperate peninsular-offshoot of Akina's southern polar continent. It is named after the then-rank of Shimizu-Motoyoshi Akina (清水本吉明菜), the Nekovalkyrja whom the planet is named after. Just to the west, barely outside of city limits and already bordering a lot of new development areas is Akina Starport. On the other side of the mountain is Fort Akina. Because of its unique position on the planet, storms blowing in from the north and the east frequently get “stuck” on the mountain and the nearby range, making Taisho one of the rainiest settlements on the planet.

Development Zone

The planet has a fairly large development zone outside of the City of Taisho. In response to the food shortage caused by the Battle of Yamatai, the government opened a large number of farms here in YE 34. Equilibrium Foods also established its first set of farms and ranches on the planet. There they raise, grow and sell a wide variety of food items, with a large portion of what they produce being donated to needy communities.

City of Asarthotar

Asarthortar 4) is a city planned by Tsenlan to become the capital of Tsenlan's state within the Yamatai Star Empire. It is to be located on the eastern side of the mountain in which Taisho has been constructed and will be constructed using Sanctuary Technology. Construction is set to begin in early YE 45.

Refugee Towns

In YE 34 the Yamatai Star Empire constructed 10,000 Refugee Towns, capable of supporting 184 million people with additional overflow capability in the form of tent cities if necessary. This was done to ensure the welfare of displaced persons from the former Yamataian colonies in the United Outer Colonies. By YE 38 the camps' residents had all moved on to real housing in Taisho or to other planets, and the camps were closed.

In YE 44, after the Arrival of the Norians, these refugee towns were reopened for use by the norians of Tsenlan to use until Asarthortar could be constructed.

SMX Strip Mining Operations

The planet is dotted with abandoned Mishhuvurthyar strip mining operations that have since been reclaimed by nature. These are a remnant of their occupation of the system in YE 29.

The Moons

The moons of Akina are Eiko 5) and Hiroyuki6). The Lo'Ken Institute Lo'ken Institute has a future colony project planned on Hiroyuki.


The following corporations operate in this system:


The population of the Akina System consists of 200 Million Yamataians, 330 Million Norians and, 200,000 Lorath. The totals for the Norians reflect the population expected once the refugee crisis is over. The Lorath present in this world are not connected to the Lorath Matriarchy, they were part of the Arrival of the Norians in YE 44 and have been part of Tsenlan since they were encountered in another universe in YE 42.

Akina is a relatively peaceful and hospitable place with these populations living in cooperation.
