Urgent news from Homroon, as Blood Raider attacks Holder family
Late afternoon on the 9th, a small Blood Raider squadron entered the upper atmosphere of Neda V, while a larger fleet main fleet started to bombard key targets on Neda III. Following reports of landing parties making planetfall on both planets, distress calls have been broadcast throughout the Khanid Kingdom but, given Neda’s remote location, no responses have yet been sent at the time of writing.
News of this attack comes three weeks after the capsuleer Maira Sorn Blackfire and her former warclone sister Azlina Sorn Blackfire were taken into custody by the matriarch of the Sorn family, Corellia Sorn, during a personal visit to Khanid Prime. The tension between the two sisters and the Sorn family ignited earlier this year after Lady Corellia Sorn condemned both as Sani Sabik. This allegation followed an attack on Sorn family holdings on Khanid Prime in which the sisters appear to have been involved but able to evade capture due to CONCORD regulation of infomorphs.
There have been further reports of heavy ground fighting on Neda III, as Blood Raiders’ blood harvesters met heavy resistance. A combined force of House Sorn and LUMEN personnel clashed with the harvesters head-on in order to protect the slave workers on House Sorn’s agricultural plantations. While heavy outgunned, House Sorn and LUMEN forces have the advantage of an entrenched position and local slaves have also reportedly taken up arms against the invading Blood Raiders.
Reports form Neda V, seem to indicate a smaller but more highly trained group of Blood Raider forces landing closer to the capital of the planet, Anahita, where LUMEN special forces are currently protecting the city’s population. News from the Holder family itself has gone dark after the Raiders’ initial first strike saw orbital bombardment hitting the Sorn estate grounds. Although satellite scans show the estate has sustained heavy damage, personal guards appear to be keeping the Blood Raiders at a distance, for now.
Khanid Public News Network tried to reach out to local Royal Khanid Navy stationed in the Youledian Constellation, KPNN only managed to get one comment from a Captain Andre of the Silver Lance.
“They knew the risks of settling that close to Delve, it takes time and resources. Resources that are hard to come by. Our priorities are simply elsewhere at this time. A small fleet is being scrambled as quickly as possible but may not, despite our best efforts, be ready to respond before it is already too late.”
In other news, the corporation and business Sorn Interstellar industries owned by Capsuleer Maira Sorn Blackfire, have been spotted near the border of the Kingdom, but due to ship cloaking they whereabouts is currently unknown.
