A highly improbable system

If it hadn't been for the fact this system has a White Luminous Supergiant in it, I'd have never found it.

It has a black hole and a red giant orbiting each other, which isn't that terribly odd. However, they're in a paired orbit with something that seems highly improbable: a black hole, in a binary orbit with a pair of black holes!

Code
Place    "Four black holes!"
{
  Body    "Wezen "
  Parent    ""
  Pos  (-0.001124635860694758, -0.0002556501464931647, 0.0001469320543607451)
  Rot  (0.1261619731053781, -0.6106746059723108, -0.252760800327665, 0.739778115370034)

The star appears to actually exist, but I did not find any mention of it being in a system with four black holes... bug, possibly?

It's the procedural star bifurcation sometimes making catalog stars into binaries. Rigel gets a double black hole added to it too. It's silliness like this that made me turn off that setting: for me Wezen is a singular white giant.
