Bellatrix Oy was founded by Yan Hoek to manage his companies and leaving him free to work. Bellatrix is the 3rd brightest star in the constellation of Orion, also known as Gamma Orionis. It was set up while he was still resident in Finland, (hence the 'Oy' suffix - it is Finnish for Ltd).

Its logo shows three stars Bellatrix (blue), Algol B (orange) and our own Sun (yellow).

Bellatrix Oy never created its own companies, preferring instead to find bargains on the company markets. The result of this was a portfolio that was worldwide.

The organisation had no home region, and was constantly on the move to find the best prices for raw materials. It had been resident in, at one time or another, over half of all the nations of the New World.

On day 1147 Yan moved all remaining companies owned by Bellatrix Oy to his direct control. This effectively ended Bellatrix Oy's usefulness as a holding company. After that move, the organization served its purpose by buying foreign produced manufactured goods for Yan's personal use.

The guiding ethos of the organisation was to foster good relations with its employees and help them develop - even if that came at a cost of profits.

Brief history of companies owned

Arcturus Grain

Arcturus Grain was the first company managed by Bellatrix Oy. Situated in Eastern Finland, Finland it was unsuccessful due to high wage costs and competition. Eastern Finland was a medium region so was unable to compete against foreign companies producing at lower costs. Fellow Finnish grain companies were also suffering from the same problems and a cartel was formed, chiefly to stop wages spiralling out of control and set a fair price that would not be constantly undercut. Due to lack of funds, Yan was unable to upgrade the company to help improve its prospects. It would eventually be sold - at a loss.

Baltic Homes

Using the funds from the sale of Arcturus Grain, Yan bought the second and one of the most profitable of his companies: Baltic Homes, on day 633. It was situated in Pohja-Eesti, Estonia. To find raw materials to fuel house construction Bellatrix Oy began the constant movement around the globe that has characterised much of its later history. Yan decided early on that Baltic Homes would remain a Q1 company, eschewing long-term profit for continual sales. In this respect he sought to expand the geographical scope of the company buying licenses for Norway, Lithuania and finally Latvia hoping to harness the booming populations of the Baltic States.

Baltic Homes had to be shut down construction several times in its history, usually due to overproduction and lack of sales, and currently due to high wage and Wood costs driven by a change in the rule governing Hospitals and the subsequent boom in house ownership that led many more Estonian companies to enter the housing market.

Algehenny Forest Co

Situated in Pennsylvania, USA Yan bought this company on behalf of his friend Worf201 during the occupation of the USA's Eastern Seaboard by Portugal. Together they hoped the subsequent retaking of Pennsylvania by the USA would raise the price. No employees were ever hired and the company remained dormant until being sold for a small profit.

Aurora Airlines

From the growing profits of Baltic Homes Yan bought this moving ticket company in Saarland, Germany. It operated for a few weeks during the Autumn of 2009 before being sold to help shore up the growing losses associated with Baltic Homes. One of Yan's regrets is that he did not keep hold of this small but profitable company.

Polaris Rifles

Similarly to Aurora Airlines, Polaris Rifles in Smaland, Sweden was bought and sold due to the changing fortunes of Baltic Homes.

Aurora Gifts/Aurora Airforce Industries

The first Q2 company Yan has owned, Aurora Gifts in Vestlandet, Norway, was bought with the proceeds of Baltic Homes' sales during its second shutdown. Its early period was shaky due to the marginal value of gifts but when the Hospital rules changed so did the company's fortunes. During V1 it was most successful gift company in Norway.

Aurora Airforce Industries.jpg

After the launch of V2 Aurora switched to building helicopters but due to the shaky economy and sheer amount of titanium required it never really became fully operational. On 9th August 2010, Yan took the decision to disband the company to use funds elsewhere.

Aurora Gems (later Aurora Titanium)

Bought cheaply, Aurora Gems in Veneto, Italy was bought in the hope that diamonds would be converted into a new raw material with the onset of V2 and so negate the fact that Veneto is not a high or medium region for diamonds. When it was announced however that diamonds would change to Titanium and keep their existing high/medium region spread, the company was effectively worthless and was sold at the earliest opportunity at a knock-down price.

Aurora Grain

Using funds from Baltic Homes' booming sales and the proceeds of Aurora Gems, Yan bought this grain company in Lower Austria, Austria. Yan had been searching for a decent raw material company for some time and has high hopes for its future. He has invested extensively in the company, raising it to Q2, and purchasing licenses for Austria (the company was created during the Croatian occupation), Slovenia, Slovakia, Hungary and Italy as the region shifts between occupying forces. Later, as all raw material companies were downgraded to Q1, Yan used the regained money to buy a license for Sweden.

Aurora Food

When Norway was reduced to a single region (Svalbard & Jan Mayen) following the events of August it posed a problem: Svalbard had no active companies. This meant that those Norwegians moving to the region would not be able to get a job and all products now on sale were subject to import tax. In response, several companies were created by members of the government, including this one. Yan received a 40 Gold donation from Glost to help start the company and used his own funds to raise it to Q2 on its first day. He considers the company to be majority owned by the government but has raised his stake in the company by adding funds to buy licenses for Estonia, Finland, Japan and Belarus.

eNamibia Exporters

On day 909 Yan set up a subsidiary of Bellatrix Oy, eNamibia Exporters. Designed to be permanently stationed in the Southern Hemisphere, it acted as a diamond purchaser for Aurora Gifts and a grain purchaser for Aurora Food.

Aurora Australis Grain

Following the changes to food and health rules grain, previously a slightly marginalised resource, suddenly became a dynamic and more importantly very profitable industry. Using funds from Aurora Grain Yan bought a grain company in the newly established country of New Zealand. It was named Aurora Australis Grain to complement its sister company in the Northern hemisphere. However, as the New Zealand economy and job markets were in flux at the time no workers were ever hired. It would be sold for a small profit.

Corona Grain

Using the proceeds of Aurora Australis Grain's sale, Yan bought Corona Grain in Bosnia and Herzegovina. He added a Bosnian license to the existing Bulgarian one and a Serbian license when Bosnia was conquered soon after.

After the changes to the raw materials and production bonuses, Yan decided to sell the company to concentrate his funds elsewhere. Selling Corona Grain effectively shut down eNamibia Exporters.
