The Magistracy of Canopus is a large Periphery state, located rimward and anti-spinward of Terra, just beyond the Free Worlds League. Founded explicitly as a matriarchy, the Magistracy is ruled by a Magestrix, a position open only to women, and usually held by a member of the founding Centrella family. Independent since the fall of the Star League, the Magistracy has remained mostly untouched by the Succession Wars, except by the overall collapse of trade and travel. The Magistracy is famed for its social and cultural freedom, with no consensual behavior forbidden by law or custom. The current ruler of the Magistracy is the Magestrix Emma Centrella.


Raventhir's Iron Hand

Raventhir's Iron Hand

Raventhir's Iron Hand

Unit Rating: Elite

Raventhir's Iron Hand was originally known as the Magistracy Royal Guard for their role in defending Canopus IV during the Reunification War in 2584. Though officially disbanded in 2588, they were reconstituted in 2786 and have served the Magistracy ever since. Today, Raventhir's Iron Hand (named for their commander during the First Succession War) is the premier regiment of the Magistracy of Canopus and even guards the Magestrix herself on Canopus.

2nd Canopian Fusiliers

Unit Rating: Regular

Known for their virulent hatred of the Star League (which has extended to the newly formed Second Star League), the 2nd Canopian Fusiliers have a distinguished record dating back to the Amaris Civil War, where they savaged the Star League's divisions that came to put down the rebellious Periphery. Today, they are known for their excellent combat rating and their hate of the Second Star League, though they were passed over for joining the St. Ives-Capellan War.

Magistracy Cavaliers

Magistracy Cavaliers

Unit Rating: Garrison

The Magistracy Cavaliers have their origins deep in Canopian history, with Cassandra's Volunteers, the original national guard of the early Magistracy. Later, after being stationed on the planet Thraxa for decades, the third battalion of the Volunteers, Clayborne's Commandos, effectively detached from the MAF at large to serve Thraxan interests instead. In 3057, the MAF noticed this and brokered a deal to reabsorb the Commandos with the caveat that at least one battalion of them would remain on planet at all times and so the Cavaliers were born from that deal.
