Thule was a core world orbiting a star several light-years above the galactic plane. Because of its position relative to the rest of the galaxy, the Yaphit Pass leading from Etrusca provided virtually all access to the distant world.

During the run-up to the Amargosan liberation, Thule withdrew its delegates from the Compact Assembly. Thus, they did not vote on the presidential revision and effectively seceded from the Compact legally. To further reinforce this, they collapsed the Yaphit Pass.

By default, any ship entering Thule’s region from the collapsed pass was considered hostile and fired upon. In 432 IE, the Metisian warship Bova entered Thulian space. They fired a warning shot but stopped when Captain Bellona announced they had brought a gravely ill Jayne Best for treatment. The government ordered Suicide and Dr. Bradley to bring her with no other personnel to the surface.

Suri Mongano, the oldest human woman alive in 432, had served many roles on Thule, including founder. In 430, she left her position as delegate to the Compact Security Council, returning home just before the collapse of the Yaphit Pass. In 432, she oversaw the defense of Thule as it fired first on the Bova, then the Anna Khirovsky . With Premier Wadeski, she came up with a plan to launch Suicide onto the Khirovsky.
