The Katar Sector is an astrographical region within the Scutum-Centaurus Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy, though its boundaries are vaguely defined and rarely agreed upon by its inhabitants.

--Katar Discussion Board--

Etymology Edit

The name "Katar" comes from the Drodoian word meaning "Nest." Though it has many names and boundaries among the species inhabiting it, the Drodoian denomination is by far the most common. This is commonly attributed to their role as the eldest power in the region.

Astrography Edit

Located halfway up the Norma Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy, the Katar Sector stretches from the edges of the Delcath and Hagkrazon subsectors over roughly three thousand five hundred lightyears to far side of the Watchta Subsector. Most estimates place the sector's star count at 3,636,880.

The sector itself is divided into a number of smaller sectors of varying size and composition. The borders of these are generally established by the subsector's inhabitants.

Wormholes Edit

Within the Katar Sector, there are a number of wormholes that facilitate travel to other parts of the universe. Some are naturally-occurring and have spawned from random fluctuations in space-time, while others were artificially generated by advanced civilizations. There are currently three wormholes in Katar:

  • Charal-Katar Wormhole: This wormhole was constructed in 2791 by the Drakodominatus Tyranny to bridge their territories in the Milky Way to those in Charal, Andromeda. It was attacked and subsequently taken over by the United Free Peoples Coalition at the Battle for the Katar Wormhole, paving the way for further Coalition conquests in the sector. After the collapse of the Coalition control was transferred to the French Andromedan Colonies.
  • Tyris-Varapha Wormhole: This wormhole was constructed by the Violaven Union at the behest of the Waptoria Alliance of Species in their mapping of the Katar sector just prior to the Grea Deciever conflict. It was unconnected to the Waptorian heartlands in the Mirus Galaxy and instead led to the Waptorian-controlled Kindleflame Nebula in Tyris Major, the hub for Waptorian exploration and efforts. During most of the The Great Deceiver, it was blockaded by the Galactic Protection Agency which fought on behest of the the Hegemony, forcing the Waptoria to rely on local allies. In the aftermath of the forced Waptorian retreat from the sector at the conflict's end, they had the Violaven collapse the wormhole so that neither the Drakodominatus Tyranny nor the Katar Sector Alliance could make use of it.
  • Katar-Cyrannus Wormhole: Located just outside the Katar Sector, this naturally-occuring wormhole to the Cyrannus Galaxy was initially discovered by the Troodontids during the events of the The Great Deceiver. Abandoned prior to the events of Attero Dominatus, the wormhole was rediscovered and claimed by the Farengeto Republic in 2796, who would use it to mount expeditions and colonization of the Cyrandia cluster, establishing the Farengeto Quadrant Colonies and Farengeto Cyrannian Administration. Fearing potential threats from the Delpha Coalition of Planets and the Cyrannus Galaxy, a joint operation between the Katar Sector Alliance and the Orion League built Frontier 1 to defend the wormhole. Frontier 1 would later become the seat of Farengeto Cyrannian Administration after the establishment of colonies on both sides of the wormhole by the Farengeto Trade Coalition.
  • Farengeto GITO Wormhole: The Farengeto GITO Wormhole was constructed in 2799 after the Katar Sector alliance was admitted into the Gigaquadrantic Intergalactic Trade Organization. After debate by the Alliance, the planet of Farengeto was selected as the economic capital of Katar and the location of the new wormhole, reflecting the world's increasing economic role both in Katar and on the intergalactic scale. The wormhole links Farengeto to the GITO wormhole network.
  • Katar Anomality Rift: A tear in space stretching from the Aeoneonatrix Anomality Zone to the Eagula Nebula, the Anomality Rift currently divides the Katar Sector in two, both politically and geographically. The Rift shields the Farengeto Republic, Ezlang Republic and Drodo Empire against outside intrusion. It also also the site where the Library is said to be most widely encountered.
    • Aeoneonatrix Anomaly Region: Erputing first over the territories of the Aeoneonatrix Empire folloing their leave from Katar, this Anomality Region has since moved south to Farengeto territory following the outbreak of the Anomality Zone.
    • Torcen Anomality Region: An Anomality Region created by the Torcen incursion, located at the other end of the Katar Anomality Rift.

History Edit

Prior to the rise of the Drodo Empire, the Katar Sector was a quiet place devoid of anything of interest, a backwater. There were the squabbling few spacefaring nations, but none of these would grow to have a dominant presence in the region. Extragalctic exploration of teh sector was commenced by the Eraninian Collective, soon followed by the Mag'heli Dominion, and the Drakodominatus Tyranny. These powers would briefly fight a resource war alongside the native United Federation of Species, though peace returned soon after.

In the following years, extragalctic presence in the sector would only incease. The Hegemony of Exterioris, Imperium of War, Khilai Empire and Waptoria Alliance of Species, amongst others, would all established colonies through one way or another. The Waptoria even saw to the nurturing of a native state, the Scientific Combine of Nakeimato, shielding them from threats like the Mardor and Gargator Empires.

Great Tyranny War Edit

The Great Deceiver Edit

Main page: The Great Deceiver

In 2791, the Drakodominatus Tyranny once again turned its attention to the Katar Sector. However, an ongoing war with the Delpha Coalition of Planets had exhausted its resources. To avoid having to fight a war on two fronts, Grand Admiral Dialztreanvitz Raeditzkraft decided upon a much subtler method of conquest. Using replicated Drodo technology, he managed to convince the Hegemony of Exterioris that the Drodo were preparing to attack them.

The Hegemony launched a pre-emptive strike against the Drodo, thereby plunging the two powers into a long and costly war. The United Federation of Species, a neighbour and ally of the Drodo, almost immediately sided with their allies, while the Hegemony established a footfold in the Watcha subsector. As they lacked local allies in the sector, the Hegemony exploited a ongoing diplomatic struggle between the Drodo and the Miperiors Empire over the sale of a Miperiors invention, dubbed the "Creature Controller" to allign the interests of the Miperiors and their allies, the Aeoneonatrix and the Amphibibot Collective, with their own. The Waptoria, Nakeimato, and a new arrival, the Troodontid Empire, all sided with the Drodo and UFS over the Hegemony and Miperiors. The United Knights Alliance and Grand Republic of Tyris Major also responded to Waptorian calls for aid. As this had the potential to end the war quickly in favor of the Drodo, the Galactic Protection Agency, comprised of the Duthidanian Empire, Cathonian Collective and Skarling Allied Systems, was called in on false charges by the Tyranny to blockade all three and successfully limit their involvement to a level thought acceptable by the Drakodominatus. The Tyranny also spread its influence to the Mardor and Grand Tarkan Empires, using these states alongside the Khilai and Imperium of War to attack any who might get the upper hand, and thus keep the conflicts going.

Once the Drodo, Hegemony, and the allies of both had sufficiently exhausted themselves, the Tyranny attacked. The Bova, Velund, Horpel, and Catharas subsectors quickly fell to their onslaught, and soon the various sates of Katar found themselves fighting tooth and nail repel the Dominatus. The war ended in a stalemate as various extragalactic powers left the sector and the Drodo gained a tenacious foothold where the Imperium of War and the Khilai Empire had once been. Concurrently, the Tyranny swept like wildfire across the galaxies, gaining territories in Andromeda, Cyrannus, Borealis, among others. It stomped out and enslaved many civilizations too weak to resist their new Mark 2 expansion fleets. The various extragalctic powers, bled dry by the war or forced to defend against the Tyranny at home, all left the sector, with the exceptions of the Hegemony and Waptoria.

Attero Dominatus Edit

Main page: Attero Dominatus

To Drodo strategists, it seemed for the longest time that the war with the Tyranny would be lost. The massive behemoth had managed to acquire a million systems within the First Gigaquadrent in a few months and it seemed like there was nothing to stop it. However, on December 21, 2791, the Tyranny's main AI malfunctioned after having been damaged by the DCP. The error caused a cascading failure of all of the Tyranny's slave control chips, spawning a massive Tyranny-wide slave revolt that even it was unprepared to deal with.

The Tyranny's slave-dependent industry quickly ground to a halt, stranding entire fleets without hope for resupply or reinforcements. The Drodo, taking advantage of the chaos, quickly lashed out. They swept into Tyranny space and aided former slaves to free themselves from their Dominatus overlords. They only managed to get so far and eventually encountered the Dominatus pacifying legions headed in the other direction. With neither force willing to take risks or move any further, a stalemate ensued. Both sides dug in, and for the greater part of the beginning of 2792, the lines remained somewhat stationary with a few planets occasionally changing hands.

After having fought alongside one another for several months, the Drodo Empire and the United Free Peoples Coalition prepared in December of 2792 to sign a formal alliance that would bind together in solidarity the powers of the Katar Sector against the Drakodominatus Tyranny. Knowing it would spell doom for the Dominatus forces in Katar, Dominatus commander Mortrig Malevon enacted a daring plan to prevent the alliance, leading to the Tasan Crisis. Malevon used his shapeshifting spies to manipulate dissent within the People's Liberation Army Expeditionary Force, with the resulting uprising nearly killing the Katarian leaders. Concurrently, the Mardor Empire and Grand Tarkan Empire launched an invasion of Delcath, leading to defeat of the Mardor and the Tarkan conquest of the Miperiors and the Amphibibots. Despite this on December 31st, 2792 the nations of Katar gathered to form the Katar Sector Alliance. Neither the Hegemony nor the Waptoria Alliance of Species had been invited, despite both hoping to help their allies in the coming war. Beset by the Drakodominatus in their home galaxies, both subsequentely left the sector.

After Etzan V'klor killed his father and claimed the Tarkan throne, the Empire proposed a truce to defeat the Tyranny. With the Dominatus becoming increasingly dedicated to their fight against the Delpha Coalition of Planets and their Delcath front undefended, Katarian forces overran the undefened Dominatus worlds in lower Katar. After pushing the Dominatus out of the sector the Katar Sector Alliance declared victory on December 31st 2793. The former Dominatus teritories were partitioned between the victors.

Lightning War Edit

Main page: Lightning War The truce between the Katar Sector Alliance and the Grand Tarkan Empire was never meant to be a final settlement, and almost immediately afterwards both sides geared up for war. In particular, the Aeoneonatrix Empire pushed for the liberation of the Tarkan puppet Kingdom of Miperiors to occur as soon as possible, and even threated to unilaterally invade once to put pressure on the rest of the Katar Sector Alliance. It was eventually decided upon that the Drodo Empire would lead the initial attack upon the Amphibibots alongside the Scientific Combine of Nakeimato, the United Federation of Species while the Aeoneonatrix Empire would would attack from their Occupation Zone with support of the United Free Peoples Coalition and the Federation of Ezlanei. They were to punch through and liberate the Miperiors from the rear. The remainer of the Katar Sector Alliance forces, including the Farengeto Republic, Sindar Dominion and Vixaian Nation would attack the Tarkan heartland from the Farengeto Occupation Zone.

Almost immediately after the war satrted in the last days of 2794, things went awry for the Katar Sector Alliance. The Aeoneonatrix Empire had stationed virtually their entire navy in their Occupation Zone to fulfill their objective of liberating Miperiors as quicly as possible. Once the Lightning War had begun, they moved ahead as past as possible, allowing the Tarkans to fragment the southeastern battlegroup and push them back. The southeastern battlegroup usd weapons of mass destruction upon the Tarkans leading to a internal revolt, the surrended of the Farengeto navy present there, and the fighting retreat of much of the battlegroup. Following their victories, the Grand Tarkan navy followed up with an invasion of the Aeoneonatrix heartland in the Delcath subsector, which due to Aeoneonatrix naval placements was largely undefended. This would have resulted in the quick occupation of the Aeoneonatrix Empire, were it not for the intervention of their diety, the Cleanser, who removed the Aeoneoantrix Empire from the Katar Sector wholesale to prevent their fall. The only success came in the actual liberation of the Kingdom of Miperios, which was in large part due to the ingenious exploitation of Tarkan technology by Miperian resistence engineers and the efficiency of Amphibibot programming, allowing for a simultaneous uprising all across the Kingdom, liberating it from the ground up.

The Lightning War ended in a stalemate as the empty Aeoneonatrix Occupation Zone, still rich in mineral resources, was handed over to the Grand Tarkan Empire in exchange for Miperiors and Amphibibot freedom. They formed the Miperior-Amphibibot Coalition and aspired to take up the mantle of the Aeoneonatrix, but proved inadequate to the task. The vanished Aeoneonatrix heartlands left the Aeoneonatrix Anomaly Region behind, a phenomenon of much investigation in the following years. The costs of the war furthermore bankrupted the Federation of Ezlanei, forcing them to withdraw from the Katar Sector Alliance. Under these circumstances, the Katar Sector Alliance begun to collapse, and became dominated by the Drodo Empire and the recently-formed Farengeto Trade Coalition until it was eventually absorbed into the Xonexi Allies. The Farengeto Trade Coalition in particular saw a large boom after the Lightning War, absorbing the territories left vacant by the Aeoneonatrix, integragting the collapsing Federation of Ezlanei, imposing their ideology upon the Gargator, and gaining stewardship over the Mandatory Mardor Empire and the Former Mardor Territories. Finally, the Farengeto used their newfound power to take administrative control over the Miperiors Occupation Zone, consolidating much of Lower Katar under their influence.

First Colonial Age Edit

Gigaquadrantic Conflicts Edit

Aftermath Edit

The victory of the Allies in the Battle of Katar during the Great Xonexian Schism resulted in a golden age for the inhabitants of the Katar Sector. Long-standing threats such as the Grand Tarkan Empire were finally pacified, and inter-sector trade boomed. This era however would come to an abrupt end due to political instability within the Drodo Empire. From 2818 to 2822, it experienced a state-wide inter-clan conflict and became a monarchy from that point onwards. In early 2830, The Torcen Hordes arrived in the Eagula subsector from their home dimension. They left behind a tear in space, the Aegula Anomality Region, which quickly began to resonate with the Aeoneonatrix Anomality Region. The latter expanded to envelop the Farengeto Republic and the Ezlang Rpublic. From there, the two rifts followed the Ferengeto-Drodo and Drodo-Sindar hyperlanes to connect in the Drodo subsector, engulfing the territories of the Drodo Empire and expanding into lower Katar. The Katar Anomality Rift, as the complex became known, quickly enveloped the Drodo territories in lower as well, though in doing so lost enough power that it was unable to spread further.

Regardless of how it came to be, the Anomality Rift essentially split the Katar Sector in two from Delcath to the Eagula Subsector, which became the only wide point of crossing, though other smaller passages like the Miperior-Nakeimato gauntlet would also develop. To it's direct south and west, it left the Mardor and Gargator species once more independen. The influence of the Katar Sector Alliance to the north and east of the Anomality Rift was greatly reduced as the Jum'Ari Empire and Szor Empire allied with one another, forming the Louvelon Military Alliance to become regional powerhouses. The next year, the anomalities lifted from the former Aeoneonatrix territories in Delcath, revealing the return of their old colonies and homeworld to their cradle. They reclaimed their Occupation Zone in lower Katar from the Grand Tarkan Empire, and though their presence kept the Mardor and Gargator in line. Almost simultaneously, the Hegemony of Exterioris returned to the Katar Sector in bulk, seeking to re-assert their old dominance and bring the northeast of the Sector under their protection alongside the Purity. The Aeoneonatrix and Hegemony re-astablished their previous local relationships wherever possble, and the Purity copied them, leading to the web of alliances that became informally known as the Cleanserist Bloc. In response to these developments, the Scientific Combine of Nakeimato renewed their alliance with the Waptoria Alliance of Species, who brought the Okyno Expanse with them to counter the Hegemony and formed a buffer to shield the Nakeimato against any Jum'Ari and Szor aggression. This allowed the Scientific Combine of Nakeimato to become a dominant power north of the Anomality Rift alongside the Jum'Ari and Szor Empires, and form the Coalition of Varapha to ensure stability to their own subsector.

Political Divisions Edit

Delcath Edit

A sub-sector of many small, unadvanced empires with a bloody history of war and conquest, Delcath had long been ravaged by the genocidal Mardor and Gargator empires. It was guarded by the "Protectors" and their successors, the Aeoneonatrix, prior to their disappearance during the Lightning War. Along with the defeat of the Mardor during Attero Dominatus and the Gargator in the Transwarp War, Delcath now finally lies in a relative peace.

These conditions paved the way for the rise of the Farengeto Republic, and with the formation of the Farengeto Trade Coalition, Farengeto held a hegemony over most of the subsector. The formation of the anomality rift saw the much of the Trade Coalition in Delcath engulfed, though the Gargator, Mardor and Former Mardor territories were spared this fate. They still pledge allegiance to the distant Farengeto senate -for now- but have the resurgent Miperior-Amphibibot Coalition increasingly worried and yearning about the days of Aeoneonatrix protectorship.

The Aeoneonatrix were a new player on the scene, having risen into space only decades ago. They are only so advanced as they are because they were given technology by a previous empire called the Protectors, who were destroyed by the Mardor. They were the only hope of survival for many empires who would otherwise be quickly destroyed or enslaved by the malevolent forces that infest Delcath. At the onset of the Lightning War, the Aeoneonatrix Empire mysteriously vanished, re-appearing the Andromeda Galaxy twenty years later.

Created in the aftermath of the Lightning War and collapse of Tarkan rule, the formerly occupied Miperiors Empire finally merged with their creations, the likewise liberated Amphibibot Colective. Well within the Faregeto sphere of influence, the Coalition had recently expanded beyond the Katar sector in search of their old allies, the Aeoneonatrix. Upon finding them in the Andromeda Galaxy, their capital mas moved thereforth as the Coalition slowly began to walk it's own path.

The Miperiors are a highly intelligent and very creative race. They can accomplish great feats of engineering and dexterity. Despite their empire's relatively small size, their vast array of technology, agility, and efficiency make them difficult enemies. Their strategic partnership with the Aeoneonatrix allowed them to study Protector technology and thus benefit in research and production. The Amphibibots, meanwhile, are a collective of robots that were initially made to be a companion robot or servant robot, but crashed in a planet while being delivered, only surviving from the built-in AI contained within the ship. They build their own collective before joining the Miperiors in their alliance.

Both sides retain their own government for the moment, though they are increasingly becoming more integrated with one another. However, unlike the Aeoneonatrix and Farengeto before it, the Miperior-Amphibibot Coalition has no design for dominance over Delcath, much preferring to leave this talk to either power while they focus on their experiments.

VaraphaEdit

Owned by: Shared
Created by: Ecoraptor3339

Bordering Delcath to the east and Louvelon to the west, the Varapha subsector is characterised by its unique plasma storms and a small section of Waptorian-engineered fluidic space, home to many unique spaceborn lifeforms. Varapha's borders have always been a matter of some dispute, more so that other subsectors of Katar. In particular, it has often been considered to be but the easternmost expanse of the Delcath Sector, something which the inhabitants of Varapha fiercely deny. Nevertheless, it was grouped as part of Greater Delcath alongside the Louvelon sector by the Katar Sector Alliance.

The Varapha subsector was under the protection of the Waptoria Alliance of Species prior to the end of the Great Deciever Conflict. Following their leave, the Scientific Combine of Nakeimato, who the Waptoria had designated as their inheritors, took control of much of Varapha. They allied themselves with the other active power in the subsector, the Maracai Triumvirate, to preserve the local peace and took great measures to ensure that the isolationistic Maracai were not bullied into the KSA by representing their interests also. Following the collapse of the KSA, the Waptoria would return with a new power in tow, the Okyno Expanse, reclaiming their old territories but letting the Nakeimato continue to represent Varapha in light of their accomplishments. Under the suggestion of the Nakeimato, the powers of the subsector banded together in the Coalition of Varapha, creating an island of stability even as crime became ever more rampant in rest of the northeastern Katar Sector.

The normally withdrawn Nakeimato are natives to the Varapha subsector and value nature highly. The Nakeimato are notable for their slime creations, known as eerie oozes, and war animals they have created for themselves. They are also noted for their continuing research on planet restoration and healing. Once a protectorate of the Waptoria Alliance of Species, they defend nature and their sanctums fiercely. Of all states in the the Katar Sector Alliance, the Scientific Combine of Nakeimato has one of the largest armies. The Nakeimato fleet, by contrast, is but small and centered mainly around carrier operations. The Scientific Combine of Nakeimato is an elective monarchy were their leader, the High Druid, is chosen from amongst the descendants of Nakeimato's founder, Vio'son.

After the Waptorian exodus, the Scientific Combine of Nakeimato re-alligned themselves with the Farengeto Republic and was given important positions within the Katar Sector Alliance. However, following the Lightning War, the Farengeto would begin to administer Nakeimato territories in Lower Katar while the Nakeimato still lay claim to them, resulting in a souring of relations between the two states as the Combine once again found itself in the Waptorian sphere of influence.

Bordering the Scientistic Combine of Nakeimato, the Waptoria Alliance of Species is, aside from the Hegemony, currently the only active empire in the entire Katar Sector. Ecologists dedicated to the preservation of life anywhere in the universe, no matter how outlandish, the Waptoria is responsible for much of the biodiversity in the subsector, the maintenance of which they later handed over to the Scientific Combine of Nakeimato, whom they saw as worthy successors. The Waptoria shielded the early Combine from harm and stimulated the development of their organic technology, of which the Waptoria themselves are masters, though compared to the Combine the Waptoria generally tend to be less withdrawn and more open to outside sources. The Katarian Nerve, however, is the exception.

Once banished from the sector, de jure so they could have a greater chance to fight the Drakodominatus Tyranny at home but de facto because they refused to move their administrative capital to the Katar Sector and commit the bulk of their forces to fight the Tyranny there, the Waptoria returned after the general collapse of the Katar Sector Alliance. That these colonists returned when the KSA was in shambles no is accident but rather a statement; those who endure the longest will eventually be the last left standing. Restoring their old colonies and collectively renaming them the Reclamation Nerve, the Waptorians in Katar are unlike those in any other Nerves. Their history is one of strife and displacement, first to the Byzan Sector and the to Tyris Major. This installed in these individuals a rather burning desire to reclaim their old colonies in Katar and a somewhat unjustified resentment of the KSA as a whole, though they remain tight allies with the neightbouring Scientific Combime of Nakeimato.

A hyperreligious nation that worships life itself as the Goddess. Close allies with the Waptoria Alliance of Species, they arrived alongside them during the reclaimation of the old Waptorian territories. The Okyno Expanse once called the nearby Byzan Sector their home before their territories there were bought up by the Algolurn Popular Republic. The Waptoria, who had also gifted their Byzan holdings to the APR, decided to give those Okyno who disagreed with the ARP's heavy industrialisation -the majority of their population- a new home in Varapha.

The Okyno Expanse has a theocracy as their government. The Green Church is first, and final, power in the land. The Green Church is always headed by the Greencloy, who is also the head of the federal government of the Expanse. The religion of the Okyno Expanse is fairly straightfoward in that it deems life and evolution to be the only true God that they recognize. In the case of this specific religion, the god is female, and goes by the name of Life. Sometimes called the Life Mother or Mother Life, she is attributed with being the awareness behind evolution, the granter of intelligence, and the guardian of life. There are few taboos within the Green Church, but the biggest of them is genetic re-engineering. Engineering life to be able to survive on a planet is fully accepted as needed in order to start the cycle, but altering life that has already proven it can survive somewhere is deemed a sinful tampering with the powers of the Life Mother.

The Okyno Expanse often look at other civilizations as heretics, though luckily for everyone they are an exceptionally small nation with minimal technological advancement. Though a newcomer in the sector, the Expanse quickly became fond of the Nakeimato, much to the delight of their Waptorian protectors.

The Monarchopod Coagulative Government took the fight to the Tyranny during the final months of the Great Deciever Conflict alongside the likes of the Waptoria and Troodontid Empire. However, as a relatively small state, the war has exhausted the Monarchopods, and they left the sector shortly after the conflict ended.

LouvelonEdit

Owned by: Shared

A subsector where the influence of the Katar Sector Alliance could only ever partially reach, Louvelon is sparcely populated and poorly explored. The Jum'Ari Empire claims vast swathes of Louvelon's nothern reaches, destroying all who enter. The two other notable empires, the Vixaian Nation and the Szor Empire, existed in a constant state of cold war. With the fall of the Vixaian Nation, the Jum'Ari and Szor divided the subsector between themselves, and after the fall of the KSA, entered into a hostile relationship with the Coalition of Varapha. As a result, the Louvelon and Varapha subsectors exist in a state of cold war, though neither has a decisive advantage against the other and open warfare is thus unlikely.

The Szor Empire is the living epitome of the warrior archetype. They kill not for conquest, neither for wealth, nor for pride. War is used as a tool, a tool with widespread uses and end results. This is the wisdom that guides the Szor Empire: most problems can be solved with war, but not all wars have death.
However, they seek others to aid them to further their cause. The Szors understand that alone, weakness ensues, but united, strength grows.

Enemies:


A highly territorial and secluded empire native to the Katar Sector, populated by the Jummoth race and ruled by a powerful alien emperor. The Jum'Ari show open hostility to any outsider trying to enter their territory and are very distrustful of other empires. Because of their distrustful, paranoid and secretive nature, not very many know much about them or their intentions. They are notable for their never-ending quest for expansion, greater power and knowledge about the universe. The Jum'ari have only grown in power since their inception, and are slowly becoming a danger for the Katarian north.

Origin: Extrasectorial
Tier Level: 4

Leader(s): High-Templar Oredak

Allies:

Enemies:


The Sago Kingdom's army is different, compared to most advanced empires. They use technologically advanced forms of old weapons, like bows, arrows, swords, and things of such nature. The Sago do use vehicles, but they are also used for melee combat. Their weaknesses are that they don't fare too well in far away combat, despite heavy armor. Like many empires, they arrived in the Katar Sector during the Great Deciever conflict, and mainly worked alongside the Monarchopod Coagulative Government. Though neutral for most of the war, they gave it them all against the Tyranny during final months of the Great Deciever. When the conflict ended, the Sago Kingdom had exhausted itself, and left the Sector to lick their wounds.

The Troodontid Empire was always strongly driven by technology. Existing to advance the society of it's founders, the Troodontids, it is strongly materialistic in culture. Their experiences in Katar would form a crucible for their kind, driving them from pacifists to isolationist xenophobes, though they remain no more aggressive for it. As the Troodontids breed only slowly, the Troodontid Empire relies on adroids and artificial intelligence for nearly it's entire society, allowing the Troodontids themselves to take up the role of citizen scientists.

Likewise arriving in the Katar Sector during the Great Deciever, the Troodontids quickly allied themselves with the Waptoria and Drodo upon arrival. It was they who discovered that the war between the Drodo Empire and the Hegemony had been set up by the Drakodominatus Tyranny, but for this discovery they gained little credit. After the Great Deciever Conflict had grinded to an end, the Troodontid Empire left without complaint, for they had already given up on the Katar Sector Alliance before it even formed. To deny them any prize though, the Troodontid removed any traces of their colonies and, when it proved impossible to to so in time for their administrative capital in Katar, nuked this planet instead. It is unknown if they have returned since, though it is believed by the Waptoria that the Troodontids did leave behind numerous listening devices in Katar for the purpose of returning in secret.

KoikarianEdit

Owned By: MasterMachine
Sitting in the northwestern corner of the Katar Sector, the Koikarian subsector is dominated by the isolationist Kioskstrum Collective. In days gone, the Kioskstrum stretched all the way to the Byzan Sector, which the Koikarian borders alongside Watcha and Eagula. The Kioskstrum zealously cling to what remains of their influence, meaning that the subsector never fell under KSA control.

The Kioskstrum Collective is a small empire in star count, but large in volume due to the distance between stars in its region of space. A people led by economic self-interest, they don't get involved in anything, internal or external, unless a healthy profit is to be made from it. Ruled officially by a purposefully weakened democratic government that holds little real world importance, the Collective is fairly well defended. Corporate CEOs and representatives of such can make major trade and relationship agreements, as they are technically independent from the main Collective (paper only). Their actions are also not (in paper) the will or intent of the Collective as a whole. There are 9 member species in the Collective, though the 9th is more of a manufactured race then an independently existing one.

After the conflict, the mag'heli would ally themselves with the Hegemony, who treated them fairly, though would eventually be driven out of the Katar Sector by the Eranians. Their territories would be taken over by the USF shortly afterwards.

Once known as the United Hegemony of Exterioris, the Reformed Hegemony of Exterioris, as it is currently known, still stands strong. One of the two key players in the Great Deciever Conflict, the Hegemony found itself expelled from the Katar Sector with the formation of the KSA. Unlike the Waptoria Alliance of Species, the Hegemony never fully evacuated, keeping some small mistening posts below the radar of the KSA. After undergoing a near-collapse and subsequent revitalisation, the Hegemony claimed their old colonies from the anarchy left befind by the destruction of the New Corporate Krickan Union, once more become the greater power in western Katar after the KSA's general collapse.

When the Hegemony arrived into the Katar sector, they did not simply set up new colonies. Instead, they conquered an emerging nation, the Clifsk Plantary Government, comprised of the Volan, Griash, and Xi'Viah species. When the Hegemony left after the conclusion of the Great Deciever conflict, these three species were not taken with them and inherited the Hegemony's totalitarian structure. The United Hegemony of Clifsk was thus formed, and regarded itself as a continuation of the Hegemony in Katar. They were extremely xenophobic, believing that any outside forces would enslave and exploit them, and saw themselves as the vassal masters of the Aeoneonatrix Empire. When the Aeoneonatrix did not listen to Clifsk commands, the latter invaded, only to be beaten back and occupied.

The Khilai Empire was another of the Tyranny's pawns, joining them willingly after finding themselves at the recieving end of an exploitative deal with the Hegemony. Famed -and feared- for the limited mastery over Void Energy, this reputation was essential to drive many extragalactics twoards the Katar Sector ahead of the Great Deciever, especially from the Mirus and Tyris Major Galaxies. The Khilai betrayed the Hegemony when the time was due and fought at the Tyranny's side openly from that moment on. Ultimately, they fell to the Drodo Empire at the end of the Great Deciever Conflict, giving the latter a beachhead from which to strike at the Drakodominatus Tyranny directly.

A feudalistic imperial monarchy headed by a "Gran Beyvik," the Grand Tarkan Empire is a long-standing military and political power in Lower Katar. Thanks to gains in the Great Deciever conflict and the Lightning War, it has expanded greatly. To cope with their rapid expansion, the Takan bureaucracy has also expanded greatly, which in addition the decentralised workings of the Empire, has stalled their foreseeable growth. While still a potential threat of the sector, it is unlikely that the Grand Tarkan Empire will launch another attack soon.

The Imperium of War was a staunch ally of the Drakodominatus Tyranny, hailing from the Mirus Galaxy much like them. Their role for the Tyranny was much akin to a smokescreen, widely attacking empires seemingly at random during the Great Deciever and destroying evidence of Dominatus interference. With no base in Katar to call their own, the Imperium of War instead reciever space to the direct south of the Grand Tarkan Empire ceded from the latter. This created a strong rivalry between teh two states, despite both being allied to the Tyranny at the time. Eventually, when the entire War-Imperial fleet in Katar was out doing the Tyranny's work, the Tarkans struck - taking back their own territories. The Tyranny, reeling from a slave assault, did nothing, ending War-Imperial presence in the sector.
