The Nevarra Cluster is home to the Nevarran Kingdom and the race known as the Nevarrans. The area is a grouping of several hundred stars within the area of nebulous gases - an in impediment to interstellar sensors and communication which has kept the stars of the cluster mostly isolated from the rest of the the galaxy. The Nevarran space forces have often turned back the more curious travellers intrigued by the region's mystery. The region's high density of stars, nebulae and moons bathes its worlds - especially those at the centre of the cluster such as the capital, Nevarra Prime - in bright light, which has caused the Nevarrans to develop over the centuries with an almost complete lack of night vision.
The cluster is home to a single sentient species - the Nevarrans themselves. Other species may have existed at some point in Nevarran history, but appear to have died out through the natural processes of evolution in a similar way to the neanderthals of Earth, with the Nevarrans becoming the dominant life form throughout the region, having developed rudimentary space travel at an earlier stage of their development than most comparable races due to the sheer proximity of other systems to their own.
Over the course of the centuries the Nevarrans have charted the entire cluster and mapped all the various regions.
Besides the famous stars which are orbited by solar systems, the Nevarran Cluster is home to hundreds of smaller stars as well as a few larger ones without any orbiting planetary bodies. The most obviously visible of which are a cluster of seven red dwarfs caught in each other's gravity wells and essentially forming a system of their own consisting only of these seven stars. Due to their close proximity and their colour, they are easily visible from any location within the Cluster, and in the worlds closer to them are even visible during the day.
The are a number of asteroid fields spread throughout the Cluster, including fields that are not part of any system's standard orbital satellites. The most intriguing of these is the Denmiur Belt; a large cluster of asteroids whose path through the cluster is affected by the gravity wells of multiple stars. The belt is constantly changing direction and follows a path through the cluster that appears to suggest it is constantly moving from the edge of one star's gravitational pull to the next, never being pulled with enough force to permanently enter a single star's orbit.
