They nurture its bourgeoning humanoids and accelerate their evolution. When the Natives are ready, Canopus imposes a "Lock" on Rohanda that links it via "astral currents" [2] to the harmony and strength of the Canopean Empire. In addition to Canopus, two other empires also establish a presence on the planet: their ally, Sirius from the star of the same name , and their mutual enemy, Puttiora. For many millennia the Natives of Rohanda prosper in a Canopean induced climate of peaceful coexistence and accelerated development.
