Following the recent Blood Raider attacks in the Anath system, LUMEN will be deploying a humanitarian response to the system to aid the victims on Anath II and IV.
Initial teams including SAR personnel, first responders, and a logistical deployment to facilitate the supply of humanitarian relief has already been deployed; with members of LUMEN’s extensive medical staff and aid workers preparing to deploy. While initial reports suggest that affected colonies on Anath II had few survivors, search and rescue efforts are ongoing, and we are preparing for treatment of Deathglow-affected individuals on Anath IV.
We gladly look forward to working with both local authorities and any other parties that with to provide humanitarian aid in a manner consistent with local laws, though we advise that parties whose neutrality may be in question will be subject to extensive scrutiny.
LUMEN has also deployed reconnaissance assets to the area to assist with searches for those responsible and to ensure alertness against any further attacks, however, we do not at this time intend a military deployment unless requested by Imperial authorities.
While not widely known to the public, LUMEN has a personal connection with the Anath system, SFRIM Directrix Lunarisse Daphiti spent her earliest years in a domed colony on the storm planet of Anath V until a Blood Raider attack destroyed the colony, killing her parents. It is an unfortunate reality that the region has long been a striking point for Blood Raiders from Delve, and we mourn that once again, despite the best efforts of the brave men and women of the Imperial Navy, these vile heretics and pirates have left suffering and sorrow in their wake.
As much as we wish we could protect everyone everywhere and at all times, we know that inevitably, as was the case here, we will at some point fail. But if we are not able to universally protect, then at the very least we shall be there for the survivors.
