The Miraban Association is a sparse OB association on the edge of Florathel, which in recent times has become an important area relating to the Forever War. It is named after Miraban, currently its brightest and most massive member. This association has been the scene for many important events in the war, such as the Battle of Thomsen's Star, the Sterilisation of Chrujin, among others.
Major bodies and areas
The Miraban Association is quite a complex area, with many nebulae, star clusters, and massive stars. Due to the major conflicts in the area, there are quite a few strange objects in the area, such as Joru-Kenas, which is the result of an event not unlike Kormin's Golden Star.
There are quite a few massive stars in the area, and the concentration of massive stars in this area is slightly greater than the surrounding areas. Both the Union of Narenna and Kormin Empire exert control over several high-mass stars in the area.

There are several distinct areas in the association.
|Chrujin Nebula||Starforming nebula, H II region||Chrujin is a dim H II region located on the outskirts of the association. Originally, it was occupied by the Union of Narenna, but as the Forever War progressed, the Kormin Empire decided to enter the association, and its first decision was to invade this nebula, in an event known as the Sterilisation of Chrujin, in 97147 CE.||Kormin Empire|
|Miraban Graveyard||Star cloud||This star cloud is the result of centuries of war between the Union of Narenna and Kormin Empire. It is littered with rogue superweapons, small black holes and star systems with deserted and destroyed planets.||N/A|
|Gevirin Complex||Emission/Reflection nebula, H II region||The Gevirin complex is a complex of nebulae surrounds the blue supergiant Gevirin, currently under control of the Kormin Empire.||Kormin Empire|
