This halted Roger’s advance on New Syrtis, where he had hoped to gain massive support from long-time Varney supporters. The Davion ‘Mechs of the Eighth Syrtis Fusiliers caught him in a retreat to the frontier, destroying Varney’s force almost to a man. Though Roger escaped to keep his cause alive in exile amongst the Capellans, his military support was gone. Eventually his political support would wane as well.
When the Federated Suns formally joined the Star League in 2567, Prince Davion insisted that economic sanctions be placed on the Confederation for harboring the Varneys in exile. Under this pressure, Chancellor Ursula Liao compromised her position regarding the exiles. Though she would not surrender them to Alexander, she would no longer grant them any special government protection or treat their whereabouts as a state secret. Without guarantees of Liao protection, the Varneys decided to escape, leaving behind their court-in-exile and fat Capellan pensions.
