Important Notice about Canon Material
Material from the television program Caprica is NOT automatically considered canon, although players may adopt individual bits and pieces from what's depicted on Caprica into the regional cultural background of their character(s). When in doubt, please ask.

To avoid contradictions in established RP, a policy of "localization" has been adopted. Apart from the Staff-written Overview and items firmly established in the main BSG series, there should be no all-encompassing tidbits for any of the Twelve Colonies. Players are wholeheartedly encouraged to create regional write-ups. Those seeking to deviate from the general "flavor" of the Overview should first consult with Staff.


This temperate, blue-green gem of a world is commonly depicted as the middle planet of the Trojan orbit, for indeed, Caprica truly is the center of the Colonies: the focal point of commerce, politics, law, culture, and faith. Its capital, Caprica City, houses the three branches of the Colonial government in addition to a veritable horde of corporate headquarters, merchant banks, and institutions of higher learning. Delphi is more religious in nature: not only is it home to painstaking recreations of Kobol's Pantheon, Forum, and Opera House, it possesses the Colonies' largest collection of artifacts from the lost homeworld. The Caprican people are a diverse lot, but on the whole they're perceived as urbane and cosmopolitan, spoiled by the privileges of luxury and wealth. They have relatively little representation in the ranks of the enlisted but are disproportionately represented in the higher ranks of the officer corps — the traditional proving ground for the sons and daughters of elite Caprican families.


Players are encouraged to add their own write-ups. If you'd like to add to something already listed, please speak with the player who created the region.

Caprica City

Caprica City was a major metropolitan area, and the capital city of both the planet Caprica and The Twelve Colonies of Kobol.


Located between the Caprican Bay and a range of hills, covering a wide expanse of land, and divided by a number of waterways, the greater Caprica City metro area was once home to countless suburban neighborhoods. Among these is the region approximately 5 km to the southeast of Caprica City known as Eleusis. A fairly good modern analogy would be Weston, Massachusetts. It's a place known for large homes on comfortably green lots, many constructed within the century leading up to The Fall. Old growth shade trees and sidewalk-side wrought iron fences are not uncommon in Eleusis.

Serving primarily as a bedroom community for Caprica City's countless working professionals, Eleusis had easy accessibility to C-City via MagLev rail system and road; the city's D line served the suburbs of Eleusis and others southeast of the city.

South of Caprica City and bordering the region known as Eleusis was the city of Eleuthia within the Amnisos Valley. The valley itself is flanked and surrounded by a pair of mountains: Mount Pinot to the northwest and the stretch of the Arcadian Mountains to the east. Eleuthia was warm in the summer and cool in the winter, an area of perpetually temperate weather.

Being a strong viticultural area made Eleuthia famous for many a generation and made the city thrive under northern Caprica City's shadow. Surrounding the city and along the valley floor were hundreds of wineries and strictly preserved agricultural areas. For those not native to the area, it was a popular seasonal vacation spot for Caprica's denizens.

A decent analogy of Eleuthia would be Napa Valley, California.
