Capital of the Conver Ambi up until the Conver War.

A lifeless eogaian world, the reducing atmosphere was terraformed over a period of five centuries by Jovian Ecotech into a very Earth-like planetary biosphere, into which was introduced a plethora of exotic life forms (both natural and gengineered). By the time the Conver Ambi was waxing as a religious-corporate empire Conver Ky grew into one of the richest and most populous systems in existence, larger than Bourgatov and New Earth. During the Conver War, the conflicts within the system led massive use of relativistic kinetic weapons, amat bombs and nanoswarms, wiping out the biosphere.

This forced the survivors to flee into emergency space habitats where they were easy prey for the Orthodox cleansing program. In the final phase of the war singularity weapons were used in the system, destroying most of the remaining habitats. In the end 99.5% of the population had been wiped out, and the system remains dangerous to this day due to drifting singularities and nanoweapon spores.
