Shadows of the Alliance
Osiris is the heart of the Alliance’s Judicial branch. Here the High Court hears important cases. Their decisions affect the interpretation of parliamentary law with repercussions throughout the system. The Court is housed in a large pyramid-shaped building (honoring the Egyptian god of the dead for whom the world was named) in Capital City. The most important law firms are also based here, linked to their branch offices on other worlds by the Cortex. The University of Osiris boasts the most prestigious law school in the Core, as well as a fine medical school.
The corporate offices of the Blue Sun corporation can also be found on Osiris. Originally on Sihnon, they were recently moved into a massive structure that is attached to a combined manufacturing plant, distrubution center and spacedock. The Corporation complex is off-limits to everyone except employees. No one enters, even on business, without first undergoing a thorough background check. The very latest in security systems makes this complex nigh impossible to break into.
Landing on Osiris is restricted, though not as heavily as some planets (just as long as you don’t go near Blue Sun) If you claim you need to see your lawyer, you’ll usually be permitted to set down. University students and their parents are always welcome.
