Isolda is a world located in the Futel System, located in the Lewis Galaxy and thus in Herschel Space. It is thus placed within the galactic Nephos Arm in the Imperial Nephos Arm subsector, in the Orsuldai Region. Isolda belongs to the nation known as The Empire of Mankind, being a stronghold and one of the main seats of power of the Zykov Family. It is one of the most ancient colonies of humans in the Galaxy and all over the cluster, home to great landmarks, like the Great Temple of the Twelve Emperors, which is the main one ever built by the Empire dedicated to the worship of the first and most glorious emperor personalities.

Isolda is also known by it's high standards of living, being famous for their love of music. Isoldan musicians are reknown all over the Empire and so are most of the theaters plays and operas coming from Isolda. It is home of one of the biggest academies of acting as well as the Royal Conservatory.

Many worlds were colonized with settlers from Isolda, being Okaia, Meldan and Pandora some of the most important ones. This has made both worlds have a very deep cultural connection with Isolda, spreading its beauty and special cultural particularities across herschel space (as well as adding their own cultural particularities to the mix).

Economically, It's very diversified. Most of the planet is based on services with sectors like agriculture, music and entertainment industries, manufacturing of clothing, Gardening, export of fuels and appliances, basic domestic robot manufacturing and others being the key ones in their economy.

Its rulers are Aviena Zykov and her daughter Dardrelle Hosenberg, both sister and niece of Fiona Zykov, the current head of the Zykov Family. Both women rule and live in Isolda, as the planet is one of the traditional seats of this house. However, as tecnically now Aviena Zykov has married into the Hosenberg Family and Dardrelle is actually Hosenberg, once Aviena dies, her place would be taken by the second son or daughter of Fiona (as it is customary) and Dardrelle would have to return to the fieldom of her father's family.

Description

Some say that Isolda is the traditional seat of the Zykov family origins. During the Nobility wars it was made the seat of the Zykovs that were loyal to the Emperor and remained a seat of the House, until it was changed to Okaia (from 33 950 CE to 37 280 CE // from 13 784 ALD to 17 214 ALD). Isolda is currently the oldest of the seats of the Zykovs and thus also their oldest seat even if today, Okaia is their main seat. Traditionally, the lower siblings of the head of the house, and usually a female (but not always) rules the planet. Thus, Fiona Zykov's sister, Aviena Zykov (known by marriage as Aviena Hosenberg) is the current ruler of Isolda. When she dies, the seat of Isolda would be passed to the younger sons of Fiona.

History

Founding

Isolda was colonized in 21,469 CE (1,303 ALD) by settlers of Mitra and Elpida during the early times of colonization. Some later colonist arrived from Rhea and Thetis. All of which have given a distintive culture to the planet. The first ships sent had around 2 million settlers from Mitra and about 1 million from Elpida. This early colonist were later joined by another million of Rheans and Thetisians. This has made the dialect of Isolda particular in the sense that it is heavily marked by common features of Mitra with a distinctive Thetisian and Elpidan sounds.

The early settlers founded some of the big cities of today and quickly rose into becoming a beacon of culture, music production and refinement. For many years, Isoldan music was the most beautiful and acknoledge as a sign of well verse culture.

Republic of Anthropos

The Anthropos Republic favour the colony due to its position within Nephos. It was a key world that joined well the lines conecting the Nephos Arm with the Horos Arm.

First Civil War

During the warm it was attacked several times by oposing forces of to gain control of it.

Second Civil War

During the war, the planet was divided between the fighting parties and the Guardian's loyal armies. Several combats ensued in its surface for years but finally the Guardians supporters made progress by the end of the conflict and conquered Isolda fully executing, capturing and later on enslaving many of the ones that had supported the parties.

The second civil war was heavy on Isolda which saw almost 20% of its population destroyed and about a 10% emigrated to found new colonies. However, the planet recovered fast and was favoured by the Empire to be reconstructed. Isolda soon became a supporter of the Empire.

During this time, the planet was given to the Zykovs for it's protection which soon made Isolda their homeseat increasing the importance of this world. It has become a prestigious seat of the Zykovs every since and soon after the First Relative's War it was the traditionally hold directly by the head of the house until it was moved to Okaia. Then the planet would be held always by the second son or daughter of the head of the house.

Nobility War

In the Nobility War, Isolda became the stronghold of the Zykov Family that suported the emperor as opposed to Okaia who became the seat of the Zykovs that supported the Nobility. Isolda saw a rise of importance during this time as it was well rewarded for its loyalty as oppose to other worlds of the Zykovs. During this conflict massive combats took place in the airspace of the planet but only a few ground battles took hold, sparing Isolda from massive destruction on its surface.

War of the Two Emperors

This war saw the world of Isolda alligned with Larissa and Roldar as oppose to the Zykovs that sided with Kador V. This made Isolda a stronghold of the rebellious forces and althought it made it out unharmed from the war, its importance was broken and Okaia became the seat of the Zykovs taking the old importance that Isolda once had. Isolda however continued to be a center of music, commerce and its strategic importance remain but it's golden age had passed. During this time, the Temple of the Great Twelve Emperors was constructed to reconect the loyalties of Isolda with the Empire.

Imperial-Unionsit War

Heavily bombarded during this period, it saw Unionist forces occupying large areas of the world causing heavy losses in the areas they controlled. However, Imperial brigades liberated the planet soon effectively cutting Unionist supplies between the forces in Miaris and in Drakori.
