When the Khaukeairl clan first settled Teakhiru (2539) in -1080 they overlooked the native Droyne population. They couldn't see them. The Droyne of Teakhiru live in extensive caverns beneath the mountains. The initial survey of the world did not reveal their presence. The Khaukeairl claimed the world and established a colony. Several years later, a geological survey team looking for precious metals discovered a cavern with a vault door several meters inside. A couple weeks worth of attempts to open the door failed but it did get the attention of the Droyne. The Droyne told the Khaukeairl that they had no claims on the surface world and that it was all theirs. This pleased the Khaukeairl and they left the strange hermits alone.
When Virus hit Teakhiru, the Droyne underworld was spared. Separated for millenia from the surface, the Droyne were not a target. The Aslan, however, were a target. A few survived and managed to make their way into the subterranean Droyne city. Since the Droyne are once again the "dominant" population, the name of the world has reverted back to Loblitmyus.
Although initially destroyed by Virus, Oisyasais (2933) is now a base for the AQS operations. The starport is submersible and is capable of self-relocation to thwart location by Vampire ships.
Wahtoikoeakh (2936) was an overcrowded filthy industrial world before the Collapse. The Fteweyeakh clan (though Tlaukhu members themselves, they're allied to the Eakhtiyho), known for their heavy investments in the Reaches, did nothing to stop the ever increasing pollution and crime. "Even normally unthinkable rukhta, crimes of honor, were committed on a regular basis." (TD19)
Along came Virus. A TL14 industrial world at the base of the Riftspan Route was just exactly what it needed to launch attacks at the Aslan across the Rift. Billions of Aslan died from Virus' initial attack and subsequent conquest of the manufacturing facilities. Billions more died in the aftermath from the lack of food, clean water, and clean air. Attack robots scoured the countryside executing all that they could find. Too proud to surrender, Aslan captives only fought until they were slain.
Having already crossed the line into dishonor, the Fteweyeakh thought nothing of using guerilla warfare to survive. When Aslan from the Khei liberated the world in 1196, a blind eye was turned to past Fteweyeakh behavior. It could be said that they'd suffered enough.
Wahtoikoeakh is a ruined world. Several decades worth of Viral rule were no better than its Aslan predecessors. Many life forms have died off. Acid rain actually causes skin burns upon prolonged exposure. "Death clouds," toxic air masses from broken storage tanks, have been known to asphyxiate hapless victims downwind from the source. Life expectancies for Wahtoikoeakh's inhabitants are expected to continue to be short as the noxious environmental conditions will take a long time to fade.
The Hlyueawi clan have fought bitterly to regain control of Iyw (3038). Although valiantly struggling on their own, they weren't achieving much more than a stalemate. This stalemate was acheived through the use of such dishonorable tactics as "ambush" and "terrorism." When help arrived from the Aslan across the Rift, the Hlyueawi were finally able to defeat Virus.
