Tyris Major is an average sized spiral galaxy within the Ikawa Eropisii Group of galaxies within the First gigaquadrant. Tyris Major is the largest galaxy within the Tyris Cluster. It is orbited by a few smaller irregular dwarf galaxies, the largest of which is known as Tyris Minor. The cluster is gravitationally bound to the much larger Mirus Galaxy in much the same manner as the Quadrant Galaxies are bound to the Cyrannus Galaxy, orbiting Tyris Major rather tightly which in turn orbits Mirus in a wide arc. Due to this, Tyris Major is not expected to collide with Mirus, except perhaps when perturbed by another passing galaxy.
Tyris Major appears to be the only galaxy within the cluster that sports well developed galactic alliances and empires, while it's satellite galaxies are either mostly uninhibited or never develop life intelligent enough to spread further than a few star systems. The Galaxy itself has been host to various empires, alliances, cultures, religions, species and various conflicts.
The primary language used by the inhabitants of Tyris Major is called Tyris Basic, which believed to be a sort of amalgamation of the languages used by long established species of the galactic community. There is no official galactic religion, though many species share the same beliefs.
Galactic Powers Edit
This is a list of alliances that are made up of multiple empires that qualify as the superpowers on the galactic stage.
The Grand Republic of Tyris Major Edit
- Main Article: Grand Republic of Tyris Major
The Grand Republic of Tyris Major (GRTM), also known as The Grand Republic or simply "The Republic", is the oldest alliance of galactic powers in the galaxy. They typically do not involve themselves in the conflicts of the Gigaquadrant, though they are known to fight if the need is great enough. They have a rather formidable military and the best trade network in the Tyris Cluster. Their goal is to bring Tyris Major together via diplomacy and eradicate the Infectant Horde in the process.
The Lavatuft Republic is one of the oldest galactic powers in the galaxy. They are the military backbone of the Grand Republic and are considered to be one of the most formidable military forces in the galaxy on their own. They have an intense and deep hatred for the Infectant Horde and have developed technologies that are suited for killing Infectants. They have a navy of moderate strength, but their ground forces are unmatched when it comes to heavy infantry.
The S'actha Republic is considered to be the most religious of the galactic powers in Tyris Major. Their society is structured around religious worship and diplomacy, which aids in negotiations with other factions when representing the Grand Republic. The S'actha are rather poor fighters due to their more pacifist nature, though their diplomatic skills did earn them the protection of the Lavatuft Republic, so they are more than safe from would be attackers. They provide the Lavatuft Republic with much needed trade networks and use their diplomatic prowess to quell internal conflicts before they start.
The Violaven Union, while younger and smaller than their allies, are extremely valuable assets to the Grand Republic. The Violaven Union has a massive trade network that spans the entire Tyris Cluster, allowing the Grand Republic to amass large amounts of wealth. Violaven as a species are also incredibly smart and cunning, and are the lead scientists, spies, scouts, and light infantry for the Grand Republic. They are the most technologically advanced out of the races within the Grand Republic, and use their advancements to support the causes of their allies.
The United Knights Alliance Edit
- Main Article: United Knights Alliance
The United Knights Alliance (UKA), also known simply as "The Alliance", started primarily as a military defense between the dominant warrior cultures in Tyris Major. It later developed into a true alliance focused on military might. Because of this, the UKA is considered to be the most powerful military superpower in the cluster. They have developed very advanced military technologies and have amassed a massive standing military force for the defense of the galaxy and expeditions into other galaxies. While they may seem threatening at first glance, the UKA are almost never the aggressors and mostly provide protection for many of the fledgling empires within the cluster. After fighting in many battles across the Gigaquadrant, the UKA has gained a reputation as a valuable ally to have in any war.
- Main Article - Volver Empire
- Main Species - Volver
- Vassals - Helmore Galactic Conglomerate, Doopy High Chiefdom
- Homeworld - Ascon
The Volver Empire is arguably the core empire and leaders of the UKA. It was the Volver who proposed the alliance after the War of Tyris Major. The Volver Empire has an impressive naval fleet, a large amount of advanced military technology, and an unyielding military force that is unlike any other in the galaxy. The Volver people are known to be extremely honorable and honest, valuing loyalty and kin-ship more than any other aspect of their lives. Despite this they are also known to be quite distrusting of non-Volver due to their past with the Biskin Empire.
The Volver Empire also has two vassal empires that they protect, trade with, and recieve tribute from known as the Helmore Galactic Conglomerate and the Doopy High Chiefdom. The Helmore Galactic Conglomerate acts as the primary trading network for the Volver Empire, while the Doopy High Chiefdom provides strong heavy infantry and shock troops to accompany the Volver's own infantry units in land battles.
The Soldarian Empire is the largest empire within the UKA and is only second in size to the Biskin Empire on the galactic scale. The Soldarian Empire sports the largest and arguably the most powerful naval fleet in the galaxy with an impressive infantry force to back it up. The Soldarians themselves are strong and industrious and have spearheaded many wars and technological advances over the course of galactic history. Though, whether their technological advances are ethical is another story.
The Soldarian Empire exports metals and minerals across the galaxy due to their affinity of colonizing ore rich worlds, though the the best stuff they dig up gets fed into the Soldarian Military Industrial Complex. The Soldarians know war, and they do it well.
The Hyperon Grand Khanate was forged in fire and war over many generations. As a result, the Nataak people and their empire are not only very tenacious, they are also extremely centered around war and battle, moreso than their allies within the UKA. In fact, the Hyperon Grand Khanate actually fought wars against both the Volver Empire and the Soldarian Empire long ago.
The Hyperon Grand Khanate lacks a powerful navy like their allies, but they do bring an experienced and unrelenting infantry force. They Nataak are not very good diplomats or traders, so they leave that to their allies as well. Some other empires even refer to the Hyperon Grand Khanate as "the dumb muscle of the UKA". While this is meant to be an insult, the Nataak pride themselves in being an invaluable member of the UKA.
The Antroth Empire, while initially a member of the now defunct Galactic Triad, is considered to be the most industrious of the four major members of the UKA. Efficiently bureaucratic with a shamanistic culture, the Antroths as a people value utility, loyalty, and respect. Due to their homeworld and colonies having fertile soil and healthy livestock, they a major exporter of foodstuffs throughout the UKA and even the Tyris Cluster as a whole. The Antroth Empire also has a unique military force that utilizes the Antroth Mystic Arts in both their light and heavy infantry units.
The Antroth Empire is also one of a kind, being the only major galactic power to be what they call a "Utilitarian Matriarchy". Each Antroth believes that they are born to serve the empire, and they all have an instinctual desire to serve their queen and help the empire prosper.
Major Powers Edit
The Biskin Empire Edit
- Main Article: Biskin Empire
The Biskin Empire is the largest singular empire in modern-day Tyris Major. This Biskin Empire has a long history of conquering, enslaving, and even exterminating weaker empires within Tyris Major. They are also responsible for a few of the galaxies most horrible atrocities. They have even allied with the Infectant Horde in the past, which was seen as a near impossible thing to do. The Biskin Empire boasts a medium-sized but efficient navy with as similar sized infantry to boot. This is backed up by the fact that the Biskin Empire are arguably the most technologically advanced empire in Tyris Major in regards to military, industrial, and recreational technologies.
After taking serious losses during the War of Tyris Major, the Biskin Empire began to shift from being an antagonistic great galactic power into a more neutral party in galactic affairs. Then, after participating in an event known as The Return (Void War), the Biskin Empire showed signs of truly trying to change their appearance to gain support from the rest of the Gigaquadrant. As of now, the Biskin Empire is using their advanced technology to help other empires throughout the cluster and Gigaquadrant. Despite this, there are still tensions between the Biskin Empire and the United Knights Alliance.
As a species, the Biskin value control, scientific advancement, and are considers to be very perfectionist, even though they have a famously short temper when things do not go their way. They are originally from Tyris Minor, but a conflict there drove them into Tyris Major.
The Raptoranean Matriarchy Edit
- Main Article: Raptoranean Matriarchy
Crammed in between the Antroth Empire and the Violaven Union, the Raptoranean Matriarchy never had much room to expand. Instead they have become famous as consumnate explorers who mapped much of Tyris Mayor in the modern era. The Matriarchy is composed of the Raptoraneans and closely related species, and is mostly self-contained to the Kindleflame Nebula and surrounding areas. The Matriarchy has always preferred diplomacy over battle and have a reputation to be almost as good negotiators as the S'acta Republic, though they are notably more fickle. Indeed, before their absorbtion into the Waptoria Alliance of Species, many empires of Tyris Major steered clear from the Matriarchy for that reason, uncertain of their intentions. While the Matriarchy is extremely welcoming towards outsiders and characterised by an egalitarian xenophilia, this serves them just fine as they prefer going to others, rather than let others come to them. The Raptoranean spy network troughout Tyris Major is notably extensive, composed of both Raptoraneans and those infatuated by their pheromones. Truly, little goes on in the galaxy without their knowledge.
The Raptoranean Matriarchy is composed of various semi-independent solar systems who all owe allegiance to one single queen. In the past, this queen was seen as divinely-inspired, and though this is no longer the case today, she still serves as an important chief of state, high diplomat, and leader of the military.
The Matriarchy has traditionally pursued good relations with the Violaven Union, and after a short vassalage, with the Hyperon Grand Khanate. Due to their influence reaching as far as the courts of most other empires within Tyris Major, they have historically had little enemies, with the exceptions of the Antroth Empire and the Infectant Horde. The Antroth use their own set of pheromones to communicate which easily overpower those of the Raptoraneans, while the nature of the Infactants also renders them immune.
The Infectant Horde Edit
- Main Article - The Infectant Horde
The Infectant Horde is a tenacious and deadly galactic menace. As an organized faction, the Infectant Horde is the oldest remaining great galactic power in Tyris Major. While there have been many leaders of the Horde over the centuries, the goal of the Horde has remained the same: infect everything. When the infection is small, they are not much of a threat, but they can reproduce and spread rapidly among the stars, making them a very formidable foe. While they do sometimes ally with other empires, the Infectant Horde typically relies on its own strength. And with this strength they have threatened the likes of The Republic and the UKA. It is unknown where the Infectants themselves came from, but what is known is that they did not originate in Tyris Major, and it is possible that they are not even from this Gigaquadrant.
They are notorious for being one of the main reasons why the powerful Nyarqaeshian Empire and Nebulorian Empires collapsed. The Grand Republic of Tyris Major are the primary enemies of the Infectant Horde, and are extremely vocal about how dangerous is faction can be if left unchecked.
The Galactic Protection Agency Edit
- Main Article: Galactic Protection Agency
Widely believed to be the inspiration for the Enlightenment Collaborative, the Galactic Protection Agency arrived in Tyris Major during the last stages of the War of Pirates and was instrumental in ending it. Once, it rivalled the UKA and Grand Republic in almost every domain, and indeed was capable of holding back the combined military of the UKA and Grand Republic during the Great Deciever Conflict, albeit without the Volver navy, which had slipped trough the cracks of the GPA blockade to go after the Khilai. The subsequent Great Tyranny War would hit it hard though, as the main Drakodominatus force first struck and then overwhelmed the GPA's colonies in Tyris Major. Ever after, the Galactic Protection Agency has been a shell of their former selves and has not involved itself in Tyrisian politics, though still remains respected for their indirect role in founding the Enlightenment Collaborative, even if they aren't members themselves.
- Main Article - Duthidanian Empire
The founders of the Galactic Protection Agency, the Duthidanians possess a spy network second only to that of the Raptoranean Matriarchy, though unlike them will go for intelligence gathering first, and diplomacy second. The Duthidanians as a species are starkly regionally divided, with place of birth determining the professions available to an individual. Their economy is entirely command-based as each region produces goods needed or desired by the others. The Duthidanian Empire itself is a dictatorial state where a single individual rules for life, though is elected democratically by a shadow council of the highest-ranking intelligence officers. Fascination with the occult abounds in the upper echelons of the Duthidanian Empire, and while no dabbling in the power of the Void has been observed, the Antroth Mystic Arts are very much a topic of great interest.
- Main Article - Cathonian Collective
While the Cathonians possess a nomadic warrior tradition, their Cathonian Collective is a stangely pacifistic and harmonious entity, though highly authoritarian. The head of state also leads the military and serves as the chief shaman in charge of conflict resolution, two nominally clashing roles. The Cathonians however believe balance will come to the individual that holds them both, as the head of state should be equally knowledgable in matters of peace as in matters of war. The Cathonians make up the main army of the Galactc Protection Agency, though vote against going to war unless it is absolutely necessary. This had prevented the Galactic Protection Agency from engaging in vengeful behavior against the likes of the UKA and Grand Republic, and agruably allowed the GPA to remain in Tyris Major after the Great Deciever Conflict.
- Main Article - Skarling Allied Systems
A state from the long-destroyed Wental Galaxy, the Skarling Allied Systems came to be after the destruction of their home galaxy and the death of their ruler. After assuming control, his son overthrew the old order and purged its supporters, turning the Skarling state from determined exterminators to servitors preoccupied with sheltering organic life from the harms of existence. In this capacity, they joined the Galactic Protection Agency and form the main component of its combined navy. The Skarling remain somewhat distrusted due to their past, but are a reliable producer of cybernetics, which are considered by the inhabitants of Tyris Major to be of great quality.
Minor Powers Edit
The Khilai Empire Edit
- Main Article: Khilai Empire
While a minor power compared to the likes of the UKA and the Grand Republic, the Khilai Empire, hailing from the planet Kavous in the Nexous system, is notable for its use of Void Energy. This has made the species a longstanding nuisance to the nearby UKA, especially since the first Void War. Yet the Khilai have never truly been defeated, in part because their empire is located in a dense and well-fortified cluster of stars, and in part because they make for fearsome warriors. A Khilai in full battle plate is nigh-indestructible compared to many other races, capable of surviving an orbital drop and able to fight as fiercely afterwards. Despite this, the defensive seige mentality of the Khilai Empire makes them expand but rarely. As they tend to be only an offensive threat when spurred on by outsiders and all attempts at conquering them have turned into unwinnable wars of attrition, the other empires in Tyris Major are content to leave them be.
While the Khilai Empire is not malicious, their reliance on Void Energy has left them shunned and in poor relations with the rest of the galaxy. As a result, they have consistently been forced to ally themselves with powers such as the Hegemony, the Drakodominatus Tyranny, the Void Eye Empire and even Ada the Empty himself. Individually, the Khilai Empire is as powerful as many of the states which make up the UKA and Grand Republic, but their lack of a wider coalition limits them to be but the most powerful of the minor powers.
The Borlord Republic Edit
- Main Article: Borlord Republic
Located north of the galactic core, the Borlord Republic is considered by many to be an unofficial member state of the Grand Republic. A monarchy which reformed itself into a constitutional republic, the Borlord state was once much closer to the UKA than it was today. It is one of Tyris Major's minor powers, and was involved in the War of Pirates. Though heavily damaged by the Nebulorians in the Nebulorian-Alpha War, the Borlord Republic recovered enough to aid in the containment of the Infectant outbreak during the Infectant War. They joined much of the galaxy in the Enlightenment Collaborative, of which it remains an honored albeit largely inactive member still. Their military, though small, fought bravely against the forces of Ada in the First Void War, and in the aftermath of the Enlightenment war,
A mostly peaceful empire, the Borlord Republic makes use of state-of-the-art clone armies produced by a corporation known as the Micro Cloning Band. Numerous variations of this cloning process are known to exist, from highly aggressive clones produced in a matter of weeks, to more slowly gestating clones that form the bulk of the Borlord army. These clones can be modified in gestation, and as such a small contingent of genetically-engineered Borlord space marines also exist. Generally though, the Borlord Republic prefers diplomacy over violence, and has only gone to war as a last resort.
The Ciniade Coalition of Sentients Edit
- Main Article: Ciniade Coalition of Sentients
Relatively isolated south of the galactic core with hegemony over the Dumbinz Cluster, the Ciniade Coalition of Sentients is a liberal-minded state with a long and chequered history. Founded by the Chrian species, it took part in the War of Pirates alongside the Borlord Republic and United Knights Alliance. Yet the Coalition of Sentients had always harboured suspicion towards the Rapotoraneans that migrated to their space, many of whom turned out to be spies of the Raptoranean Matriarchy. Such tensions persisted even after the Raptoraneans joined the Waptoria Alliance of Species. In a fateful act of revenge, the Coalition of Sentients began to fund the Matriarchy revel group known as the Citadel of Sapients, after which the Matriarchy retaliated by fermenting division with the Coalition itself. As such, the Coalition of Sentients found itself on the side of the Citadel and the Nebulorian Ascendancy during the Nebulorian-Alpha War. In the First Void War though, they joined with the rest of the galaxy against Ada. Despite its past alliances, it holds no resentment against the superpowers of the galaxy and in fact seeks to trade with them. The backing that the rebels from Enlightenment member states recieved from the Ciniade Coalition remains fresh in the memory of many though, resulting in these offers being turned down. Yet in the aftermath of the Claim of Thorns, the Ciniade Coalition has recently allied itself with their old rivals, the Waptoria Alliance of Species.
Though wishing to expand their borders and sphere of influence, the Ciniade Coalition of Sentients is held back by its low recruitment rate. Due to this, its organic component of its military is negligible and it mostly uses synths for combat.
The Separatist Republic of Ciniade Edit
- Main Article: Separatist Republic of Ciniade
A state within a state, the Separatist Republic of Ciniade was an isolationist and xenophobic state inhabited solely by the Chrian species, as aliens were expelled from the Seperatist Republic. Despite its xenophobia, the Separatist Republic was remarkably egalitarian, guaranteeing a high standard of living for all its citizens despite its poor economy and industry. This was done trough the confiscation of alien belongings and the plundering of trade routes leading in and out of the Coalition of Sentients.
Despite its isolationism and xenophobia, the Separatist Republic of Ciniade was mostly backed, ironically, by the highly xenophilic Raptoranean Matriarchy out of retaliation for the Coalition of Sentients' backing of the Matriarchy rebels in the Citadel of Sapients. As such, the Separatist Republic of Ciniade fought against their kin and the Nebulorian invaders in the Nebulorian-Alpha War, but would be reconquered by the Ciniade Coalition of Sentients shortly before the First Void War, marking their end.

In short, only the complete erasement of the Dominatus from history would be a due punishment for the misery they had wrought. The Grand Republic felt differently, asking that the Dominatus newborn and Overseer infants be spared while the Synthetics be reprogrammed. The goal, they stated, should be that the old Drakodominatus Republic might rise once more from the ashes of the once victorious Tyranny - likely hoping they could add this ressurected republic to their own federation. In the end, neither power would get things their way, the Dominatus brought to extinction in their totality, while the Overseers and Synthetics were pardoned but their indoctrination was not undone. As a result, every Overseer and Synthetic seeking refuge in the Tyris Major is hunted down and killed instead of employed, as would become the case in other galaxies.
