the largest cluster habitat ever formed. It is still growing. Locus is located in Cassandra’s Reach one of the denser regions in the L5 Trojans outside of Jupiter. It was founded by a joint anarchist-argonaut venture, and was the first major stronghold for the autonomist factions. It runs on a pure reputation economy. Security, maintenance, expansion, and defense of the habitat are all performed by volunteers.
It is eleven kilometers in diameter and somewhat irregular in shape, as growth along some spars is faster than others. A quarter of its total volume is cut out in a roughly conical shape all the way to the Amoeba, an immense, softly glowing sculpture at the center of the habitat.
