Though Hawking was settled in 2191 by the American Union, the planet itself has long since belonged to its native population, the Grawla. Since as far back recorded Grawla history, powerful alien forces have tried to conquer the planet. They have used force of arms, killer robots, even planet wide nuclear bombardment to do so. Though sometimes this occupation has lasted several lifetimes, the Grawla have always prevailed… eventually.
By 2190, the Grawla society had developed a mash-up of technologies, cultures, and societies from the leftovers of their previous invaders. When humanity arrived, they mostly kept to their colony on the west, and sought peaceful, diplomatic, relations with the Grawla. While this has resulting in Grawla society mostly leaving humanity alone there is still a large amount of conflict between humanity and more hardline Grawla.
