The Tzanar Union is fighting against the Noctae Republic for control of Genai, but there are other factions with their own agendas.
The Black Talons are an independent mercenary company stationed aboard the battlecruiser “Paladin”.
Veterans of countless wars, the Black Talons roam the galaxy aboard their ship, which allows the company to be extremely mobile and able to rapidly deploy anywhere in the sector.
The Black Talons have been hired to assist the Noctae Republic in repelling an invading army of the Tzanar Union.
The Tzanar Union is a conglomerate of rich states from the industrialized planet Sartana. Before the Gark War, the Tzanar were strong suppliers of military equipment for the United Space Federation. After the war and the decline of the United Space Federation, the Tzanar started selling their hardware to the highest bidder, earning trillions of credits in the process.
The Union’s excessive refining and manufacturing have left their home planet almost dry of resources. The decision to invade a nearby resource rich planet was voted unanimously by all its members.
Planet Genai was the weakest, and was chosen by the Union’s high generals to be annexed. The Union’s military branch is strong, large and heavily armed.
The Noctae Republic was a democratic regime on the planet Genai.
Having good relations with all the nearby planets, Noctae never invested too much on its military, keeping a highly trained small military force – the Noctae Guard - strong enough to garrison the planet.
As a member of the United Space Federation, this was more than enough to ensure the planet’s security. But after the Gark War, the USF lost most of its power and influence, and the stronger and more militarized worlds started preying on the weakest.
When the Tzanar Union arrived in the system, it immediately launched an assault on Line, overwhelming the Noctae Guard and the planet’s paramilitary forces by sheer numbers.
The remaining units of the Noctae Guard are fighting an organized resistance against the Tzanar invaders.
Santos’ Raiders are an ex-USF unit led by Colonel Santos.
Colonel Carth Santos was the leader of the famous 245th Marine Corps stationed on the Epsilon sector. Respected and considered a tactical genius, Santos won countless victories for the United Space Federation.
His extreme and ruthless tactics earned him the nickname “The Beast”, well known among both allies and foes. Ultimately Santos decided to abandon the USF, and led his rogue unit to Uver. The planetary defenses were no match for the Colonel, who appointed himself the new planetary governor. This situation caused some discomfort among the USF, but probably due to the Federation’s weakened state and lack of manpower, no troops were ever sent to bring Santos to justice.
Uver Liberation Army
After the armies of the Uverian warlords fell to Colonel Santos, their remaining army units scattered outside the wastelands of the capital city.
In the following months, the surviving soldiers eventually reorganized under the leadership of General Jonas Zanix, who united the resistance under his banner, in guerrilla attacks against Santos’ occupying army.
The resistance fighters of the Uver Liberation Army are experts at infiltration and sabotage.
Eternal Life Cult
The Eternal Life Cult is a religious sect that believes aliens to be humanity’s true gods. When the first alien contact with the Gark was made public, the cult gained a considerable number of followers, who were convinced that the aliens had arrived to punish humanity for its sins.
The cult is nowadays one of the most powerful organizations in the galaxy, with followers in almost every colonized world. The rapid and aggressive expansion of the cult is very worrying to many who see them as nothing more than religious fanatics. Reports say that the cult doesn’t tolerate any other religions or beliefs, and often resorts to violence to “convince” non-believers to join them.
Revati Global Corporation
The RGC is a corporate government established on Abrios.
Masters of research, technology and cybernetics, the RGC has its own established army, planetary fleet and defense force.
Accused by some of employing brutal tactics and enforcing the implant of cybernetics on their population, the RGC is nonetheless one of the most powerful governments in the regions.
The RGC soldiers – the Tech Guard – employ high-tech military implants, drones and sophisticated equipment.
The Northstar Legion is a conglomerate of pirates, cut-throats and mercenaries currently operating in Oberon.
Their leader is Jason Zentar, a famous mercenary and ex-military who was able to unite all the gangs under his command. The Legion gained notoriety after it was united under Zentar’s command, becoming one of the largest paramilitary forces in the system.
The Northstar members are mostly military veterans and deserters looking for higher profits.
Leonis is the last noble house in Oberon. Decades of spending and decadence have turned Leonis from a once major player to a regional power.
The House’s new leader – Lord Castan – is a ruthless man willing to do anything to regain the power and influence of ancient times.
Although Leonis lost the financial and military might of past days, it still has a loyal army and a now thriving planetary economy.
United Space Federation
The USF was the most powerful faction in the galaxy, a federation of advanced and militarized worlds working for a common goal. After the Gark War, a considerable amount of planets left the federation, decreasing both its influence and its military power.
Nowadays the USF has just a few planets under its control, but still tries to maintain peace throughout the nearby sectors.
The ground forces of the USF – the Federation Marines – are among the finest warriors of the galaxy. Strong, disciplined and heavily armed.
