"What do you get when you scratch a Leithian? - A Qreshi ancestor who's embarrassed to be there."
Leith is the nearest moon to Qresh. It was colonized after Westerley to provide homes and resources for those that were not rich enough to live on Qresh, but who wanted a better life than what Westerley could provide. Many of the people who settled on Leith are distant relations of the Nine families that control the Company.
The population of Leith is primarily made up of farmers, merchants, and import/export businesses. Migrant workers from Westerley spend most of the year on Leith, but must return to Westerley before their work visas expire.
The cultural values on Leith differ than those in the rest of the Quad - peace and respectability are the status quo, with more illicit activities like sex work and drugs being totally illegal.
A group of political radicals who are extreme nationalists and believe that only those born on Leith should hold lands on the moon. They oppose the immigration of Westerlyns to Leith under the Seventh Generation Accord. Members are deeply racist, paranoid and mistrustful of the government, are heavily armed and have isolated themselves in survivalist style compounds.
