Legba is a C-type asteroid formerly owned by Fa Jing. Mined out before the Fall, Nine Lives chose it for its central location in the Belt and deposits of water ice. Roland Nazon oversaw the takeover of the asteroid in AF 2. When news of the squatters reached Fa Jing, they officially divested themselves of the now-useless asteroid. The hypercorp saw no ROI in trying to reclaim Legba and wanted to avoid legal liability or PR fallout from letting the system’s most hated criminals squat in their facilities. Ships go missing near Legba frequently. Travel advisories keep most shipping away. Only the ultimates brave the adjacent volume. Images of Legba taken by their ships don’t prove very helpful. The tin-can
modules and repurposed hulls tacked to the asteroid blend into its dark surface, obscuring details, while the unpredictable field of discarded ship components surrounding Legba discourages closer investigation. Images of the interior show a hellish labyrinth of haphazard beehive caverns and poorly maintained corridors. Bloody stacks are anchored to shrines, and the walls are covered in veves (religious symbols). The inhabitants often wear the trappings of their leader’s cult religion, Lapriyè. Adherence to Nazon’s pseudovodun in décor and dress is largely affectation—born more out of fear than actual belief in the leader’s professed magical powers. However, some members have said Nazon’s divinity is a pointless debate; if he was not born a demon, he has made himself one now.
