Kuan Yin was originally settled by pre-hyperdrive colonists of Chinese origin who named it after their goddess of mercy. The name proved to be bitterly ironic as the colony was soon endangered by indigenous bacteria that devoured every form of life that had Terran chlorophyll. Entire crops were lost and the colony was facing extinction.
During the 16th Century PD, the interstellar mercenary Gustav Anderman took over the planet, saved the colony and established the Anderman Empire. The natives embraced their Emperor's German culture and even renamed their planet.
