Succession WarsEdit

During the Succession Wars the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns used the caves on Hobbs as a giant warehouse for supplies and materiel, used to support units throughout the Capellan March. The native animals known as the Takooma viewed this as an intrusion into their habitat, and waged a guerilla war against the human intruders.[1]
