Tethys had a large ship building facility where the Pirate Clans began using rebuilt ships to raid shipping freighters operating in the outer planet territories. The Pirate Clans began a long history of hit-and-run raids on Terran interplanetary commerce. Eventually they became well organized, armed and equipped from years of raiding and pillaging, obtaining more and more resources.
From decades of life confined to the outer planets, the pirates had discovered Chaos. The planet is composed of Dark Matter which makes it almost invisible to detect, giving the Clans the technology to have Cloaking capabilities equipped on their ships.
