The Ice Giant Hyoutan and the moons that make up it's planetary system were discovered by the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet of the Star Army of Yamatai in YE 29. The moons in this system are icy and rocky and for the most part, are uninhabitable without the protection of a dome. Like most worlds in the region, Hyoutan spent a short amount of time as part of the United Outer Colonies from YE 30 to YE 33 and then the Lorath Matriarchy from YE 33 until YE 39. Both factions attempted large scale terraforming projects on the moons of Hyoutan, however, it was determined that the average temperature of these icy worlds and the layout of the solar system made terraforming unfeasible. In YE 42, when the system was reviewed by the First Expeditionary Fleet and the Yugumo Corporation those failed terraforming projects were halted and plans for future dome colonies were put into place.

The seventy-three moons of Hyoutan are diverse in size, they are geologically active terrestrial bodies covered in water or methane ice. For the most part, they have not been mapped or fully explored. The largest of which is called Hyousetsu which was the focus on the terraforming projects in the system that have since been shut down.
Hyoutan and its moons have some interesting locations.
The Lorath Matriarchy had many terraforming facilities on the moons of Hyousetsu, all of which were abandoned in YE 39. These facilities are in unknown condition and have not been explored or salvaged as of YE 42.
