Algernon was once a beautiful world of prosperity and a rich history. It was founded by King Arthur and granted to his son, Mordred and his heirs. The world was, however, destroyed by a gigantic ship with a world-shattering weapon. Kiron Nightstrider, a citizen of Algernon, saw the destruction of his world in a Dreamviewer and in that dream he saw The Hopeful destroy the planet, though its captain, Clear, claims the ship was orbiting Mars at the time. Princess Aurora Briarose is the last of the planet's royal family and wields Excalibur as a symbol of her birthright. She, however, has ALS and may well be the last of her line. She, as were her parents, is a prominent member of the Rebel Alliance and many believe the planet was destroyed by The Galactic Empire of the Milky Way as retribution.
The planet sided with the rebellion against the Galactic Empire of the Milky Way despite originally being independent from both. They are obsessive over royalty and royal gossip and are excited to see exotic queens[Tales 1].
Clear and the Hopeless
Main article: Clear and the Hopeless (Story Arc)
The King and Queen of Algernon were prominent members of the Rebel Alliance and many believed that the king would be elected as the next leader of the alliance. The planet was then, however, destroyed. Nothing but an asteroid field remains. The last remaining survivor of the royal family is Princess Aurora Briarose who has Excalibur, a symbol of her birthright[CatH 1].
"As a great deal of the first Story Arc in CatH deals with Star Wars[Ext 1] references, Algernon is an analogue for Alderaan[Ext 2], which is blown up in the original Star Wars[Ext 3] movie. Unlike the movies, Algernon remains a significant plot device in CatH long after its destruction and ties together both NeS history and CatH." - Britt the Writer
