Marabi Patha, House

Interstellar house with a mildly tweaked herditary leadership. Based at Thorne Biosphere, Schilowa World, Mathilde system, near Hyperion (world).

Established an alliance with the hyperturing Hyperion, who guided them to power in Thorne, and eventually to dominance over the entire Mathilde system, and access to potent ultratech. Joined the Solar Dominion during the early Empires period, using the empire as a means to gained further territorial possessions. Still growing in power and prestige, they break with the Dominion in 3414 (the famous The Information-Emotion Schism) and allied themselves with other expansive rimward powers, forming the Hyperion-Charlwood alliance. Their attack on the Geteche system, destroyed the local infrastructure and the governing AI, which led to the explosive destruction of all local wormhole gates and death of almost a billion sentients in the resulting hard radiation blasts. This in turn became an excuse for the Solar Dominion in alliance with the Conver Ambi, to reclaim Hyperion, forcefully pacify its main client worlds, and eliminate the Hyperion ethnic leadership of House Marabi Patha for good measure.

Several descendants of House Marabi Patha still live to this stardate in their hereditary citadel at Marabi Patha City (not far from the ruins of the original Thorne Biosphere), Schilowa. The Citadel has been converted into a hotel, and is a popular stop on the Empires Age Historicophile Tourism Circuit.
