An sparsely inhabited Metasoft world, Aiwnawim 3 was the location of several failed terraforming efforts for extremophile dolphin tweaks from the Metasoft version tree in the 5th millennium.
The dry, sulfurous, and windy planet presented a greater challenge than usual for the dolphin tweaks of the Silver Biohurricane, and they spent several centuries constructing larger orbital habitats while shifting water ice down to the surface to melt under domes. The efforts to create hydrogen sulfide-heavy dome oceans on Aiwnawim 3 would not last, however.
Earlier Aioid colonists emerged from their solipsism when mining operations of the Biohurricane encroached on their claimed territories.
A swarm of Aioid hive minds loyal to the nearby Genetron vec Hive subverted the original colonizing infrastructure of the Silver Biohurricane on Aiwnawim 1 and reprogrammed them to create autowars under their control. Later colonists from the system's inner planets formed a defense force and attempted to retake the Silver Biohurricane infrastructure, but the result was a disaster. The Genetron swarm leveled the areas around the colonies, destroying terraforming equipment and causing many other casualties. For the next few decades, the system went silent. Finally, nearby stars received notice that the two sides had reached a peace treaty, with the Silver Biohurricane dolphins agreeing to remain solely on Aiwnawim 3, and keep other travel and resource use within a set of diplomatically neutral lightways stations in orbit. When sephirotic missions arrived to investigate, decades later, they found the entire society had been subsumed as drones to the Genetron vec Hive. This too did not last however, and by 7500AT, the Genetron vec Hive had forcefully evacuated nearly all biological and even cyborged modosophont life from the star system.

The Aiwnawim system currently remains under the supervision of the Solipsist Panvirtuality, and outside of minimal trade efforts with surrounding stars, the system has stayed isolated.
