The Mercuris Federation (short for the Allied Federal Monarchy of the United Mercuris Galaxies) is a large organization of empires united under the rule of an Emperor. All of the species originate in the Milky Way, but they have expanded to many galaxies across the First Gigaquadrant intent on domination of their enemies.
After hundreds of years of advancement, they have disbanded the concept of an economy, and since have increased greatly in size.
Most of Kkrotids expansion revolves around war. In the year 2 DKS, the main Perseus Sector superpowers were the Quabart Empire and the Distronom Imperium. Being two years after the Kkrotids' expansion into space, they had only about twenty colonies. But that gave them an advantage. The superpowers underestimated them after the open declaration of war. This became known as the "War of Opression" (2 DKS-3 DKS). The Kkrotids planted false information to both sides and began a conspiracy to turned them against each other. The two superpowers quickly destroyed most of the each other's colonies, and the Kkrotids finished off the rest of the remaining enemy planets. This increased the Kkrotids' colony number from twenty to over two-hundred. They were then one of the dominant superpowers of the Perseus Scetor. But, the demise of the Quabart and Distronom allowed for other races to expand.
In the year 4 DKS, the Kkrotids found a tribal planet called Nortom. On it was a tribe of creatures called Kkintorans. Further Kkrotids study show that they have almost the same genetic makeup. Being before the creation of monoliths, the Kkrotids fleet perpetually guarded the planet. They allowed no foreign ship within a parsec of the system. But, the restriction of trade on the local empires in the area caused them to become angry at the Kkrotids. One of the most powerful empires in the area, the Tefutyrins Republic, became isolated from most outside trade. Them and their allies began to colonize areas around Nortom. When the Kkrotids attempted to halt this development, the Tefutyrins Republic learned of the location of another planet thatvthe Kkrotids were ask guarding. After a solid year of cold war, the Tefutyrins and their allies launched a full miltary strike on both planets simultaneously. This was known as the "Guardian War" (8 DKS-21 DKS) Though their attack was mighty, they were crushed shortly, and the Kkrotids launched a counterstrike on the Tefutyrins home world, Nageriai. Some Tefutyrins surrenderes, and were allowed to live freely on Nortom with the Kkintoran in freedom, and the rest were wiped out.
The Ilegans, one of the former Tefutyrins allies, had been plotting their revenge on the Kkrotids for eleven years. They made a quick and decisive attack on the Kkrotids capital, Skuther (Beginning of 32 DKS). They nearly succeeded, but the Kkrotids responded with a huge frontal assault on every planet in the Ilegan Empire at the same time. Unlike in the previous wars, the Kkrotids did not permanently destroy the Ilegan Empire. Instead, they decided to place them on an enormous craft and cast it out of the galaxy. The Ilegans, however, did not die. What happened to them, is another story entirely.
Many years later the Kkintoran and the other species, who named themselves Skutherans, reached space and joined the Kkrotids. This formed, the Mercuris Federation in the year 35 DKS.
The Kkrotids (Ornitovenatorus therium) are the founding species of the Mercuris Federation. They have formed an immensely powerful organization that leads the Mercuris Federation. They control most of the Mercuris Federation colonies and are one of the most influential members. Their leader, Emperor Mercuris lead the whole of the Federation and they are the most powerful members of the Triumbrate.
