The planet Daehre is the home world of the Daehremmah species. Seventy-five years ago, an absurdly pacifist movement prompted the residents of Daehre to severely reduce their military forces. Within fifteen years, the pacifists were forced to turn to mercenaries to put down a provincial rebellion.

To this end the Daehrem people turned to Colonel Drake Pranger, formerly of the Daehrem military. With the assistance of his mercenary company, Pranger's Bangers, he swiftly put down the rebellion. Unfortunately for the Daehrem government, he also secretly led a bloodless coup that successfully placed more militant officials firmly in control of the planet.
