There were 6.800 Allied prisoners of war, including some Marines. Moreover there were over 175 thousands of collaborative prisoners on Hades. Most of them were members of the dozens of armed forces or resistance movements of states annexed by the People's Republic of Haven. Only a minor part of which was transported on Styx and employed there or at the Elysian Space Navy. Known armed forces, that members of were incarcerated in Hades were:

  • Lieutenant Dessouix' two assistant tailors,
  • The 'flax' provider, revealed as Havenite spy, left at Inferno.

Inmates from other camps Edit

Notable non-Inferno prisoners were:

There were also group of prisoners of uncertain origin, not mentioned in connection with Camp Inferno and very likely not a member of the Manticoran Alliance armed forces (assigned to Charon Control mainly), like:

  • Commander Alyson Inch, assigned to ENS Farnese as chief engineer,
  • Commander Ushakovna, assigned to Charon Control,
  • Lieutenant Commander Dumfries, assigned to Charon Control,
  • Major Chezno, assigned to ENS Farnese, (HH9)
  • Petty Officer Alwyn, assigned to Charon Control.

Inmates freed from PNS Krashnark Edit

The POWs being delivered by PNS Krashnark were captured during Operation Icarus. They served in the Zanzibar System Defence and the Alizon System Defence. It was at least 36 people[6], including:

  • members of the Royal Manticoran Navy, eg. Commander Victor Ainspan, Commanding Officer of light cruiser HMS Adonai, senior Alliance officer on PNS Krashnark and the only warship commander there,
  • 20 to 30 members of the Grayson Space Navy,
  • 15 members of the Zanzibaran Navy,
  • members of the Alizon Navy,
  • a handful of crews from the Erewhon Navy.

Employed personnel Edit

Senior officers Edit

Admiral Harrington didn't established her regular staff. However she organized common meetings with all officers in charge with crucial branches and their deputies. The senior officers in the Cerberus System were:

  • Captain (SG) Alistair McKeon - de facto Executive Officer, charged with naval duties later,
  • Rear Admiral Harold Styles - Commanding Officer of the personnel branch, later arrested for insubordination when PNS Krashnark was seized,
  • Commander Cynthia Gonsalves - second in command in the personnel branch, joined when the military tribunal was disbanded, later - Commanding Officer of the personnel branch, Commanding Officer of the first evacuation flight and skipper on ENS Sabine,
  • Commodore Jesus Ramirez - Commanding Officer of the Camp Charon, charged with naval duties later,
  • Captain Harriet Benson - Executive Officer of the Camp Charon, charged with naval duties later,
  • Commodore Gaston Simmons - Commanding Officer on Hades - he replaced Commodore Ramirez and Rear Admiral Styles,
  • Commander Solomon Marchant - responsible for security flights, member of computer attack team, charged with naval duties later,
  • Commander Warner Caslet - Admiral Harrington's assistant, in charge with Havenite communications procedure, employed on ENS Farnese later.

Camp Charon Edit

After successful assault on Camp Charon Infernoites took direct command there and for short time they staffed all branches there. Known and possible positions were:

  • Commanding Officer - Commodore Jesus Ramirez,
  • Executive Officer - Captain Harriet Benson,
  • officers responsible for low level recon flights - Commander Marchant and Lieutenant Commander Metcalf.

The exact number of anti-Havenite personnel employed in Camp Charon is not certain. There were c.a. 1500 StateSec personnel stationed earlier.

Security detail Edit

There were some Royal Manticoran Marine Corps members incarcerated on Hades[7] as well as some junior officers of the Gaston Marines.

Probably the first Commanding Officer of a security detail became Lieutenant Henri Dessouix.[8] Marine or ground forces officers, senior to major rank, were not mentioned.[9]

Before the Elysian Space Navy was created PNS Krashnark and PNS Bacchante were boarded by at least a platoon of armoured troops from Hades.[10]

Computer attack team Edit

Just after seizing Camp Charon a team responsible for retrieving data from StateSec databases was organized, including:

  • Commander Solomon Marchant,
  • Lieutenant Commander Prescot Tremaine,
  • Lieutenant Commander Anson Lethridge,
  • Lieutenant (SG) Jasper Mayhew,
  • Master Chief Gianna Ascher,
  • Senior Chief Horace Harkness.

Charon Control Edit

Until the Elysian Space Navy was finally developed Charon Control was crewed by allied and non-allied personnel together. In October 1913 PD it was very likely the majority were non-allied volunteers. It seems it was a good place of quasi-naval employment for outdated non-allied naval personnel. The number of Charon Control's personnel is unknown. Charon Control was also supported by:

  • Senior Chief Gunner's Mate Horace Harkness, as Chief Cybernetist in Hades, supported by two electronics technicians as well,
  • Commander Warner Caslet, who possessed the best experience with Havenite communications procedures.

Medical branch Edit

Head - Surgeon Commander Fritz Montoya.

Food production Edit

There were circa four hundred of agriculture laborers on Styx.[11]

Personnel branch Edit

Naval branch Edit

There were 6,800 Allied personnel assigned to the Elysian Space Navy and over two thousand of non-Allied personnel there.

See: Personnel of the Elysian Space Navy

Military tribunal Edit

Members of the Military Tribunal on Hades were Captain McKeon and three other non-allied officers, assigned later to other tasks. The tribunal required some bureaucratic support also.

Harrington Guard Edit

Before the ESN was created some marines were chosen by Major Andrew LaFollet to assist him with Steadholder Harrington's personal protection - they were members of the Royal Manticoran Marine Corps very likely.[12]

    The maximum number of that POWs was limited by Mars-class unit space capability and three shuttles capability (lowered due to POWs transportation purposes, minus place for at least 45-50 armored troopers of boarding party and unknown number of prize crew). While number of allied personnel increased from 3.200 before Krashnark's arrival, to 6.800 finally, very likely Krashnark transported hundreds of POWs, rather than tens.
