The Serpent Swarm is a collection of asteroids in the Alpha Centauri system that orbit close to the vicinity of Wunderland. For the denizens of that system the Serpent Swarm holds much the same status as the asteroid belts near Earth does in the Sol system. Like Sol Belters, those who settled in the Swarm developed a culture that was distinct from their planetbound counterparts. The Serpent Swarm was also a good place to hide out when on the run and it developed a reputation as a tough and sometimes lawless place people by smugglers, Kzin pirates and outlaws. [1]
