When the massive financial engines of the United Worlds collapsed the fringe planets were abandoned almost immediately. The world which would become known as Samaria had never even been officially colonized. Instead it was used as a site for many illegal experiments and working practices or the testing of those discoveries that the mega-corporations wished to keep hidden from their competitors. When the time came it was abandoned without a thought. Only the most important individuals were evacuated before the supplies from off-world were cut off. Of the people left behind those with the greatest will to endure lived, whilst most others died within months. From the survivors arose a new society, one that called itself The Forsaken.
