Aslan Border Wars ( -1118 to 380)
Series of conflicts between various Aslan
as the Aslan expanded toward already settled human territory. The Aslan
jump drive late (-1999) and proceeded to expand into the available
in their region of space. Contacts along their trailing border necessarily
resulted in friction
with the human systems in that region.
Because the Long Night was already
under way by the time the Aslan encountered humans, there was no
human government to resist Aslan attacks. Since there was no united
authority either, the sides were fairly matched, and numerous small wars erupted between Aslan clans and human
states, with alliances among the various powers constantly forming and
The border between human and Aslan space remained relatively constant,
a few systems changing hands after each war. At this time some clans
launched raids into the interior of the former Imperial domains, where they conquered and settled
as much as 40 parsecs beyond the border.
Once the Third Imperium expanded
the region (circa 200), its superior organization and technology
put an end to the Aslan threat. The final treaties, known as the Peace of Ftahalr, were negotiated
all the major clans. They established a buffer zone about 30 parsecs
between the Imperial border and the region of Aslan control. There has
no war since then (380), although the Solomani
have violated portions of the zone and incorporated it into their
