This system is located about 10 light years east of SX-01 “Vale”, it was explored by the Scientific Studies Service (SSS) in YE 31. It was the second to be explored by an expedition led by the YSS Kotoba YX-C1-0005 as part of Project Kyasshu. When the Yamatai Star Empire pulled out of the system in YE 41, the New Dusk Conclave moved into the system.
