“This existence is imperfect but vast. Hence, change for better or worse is impossible and only leads to suffering. To be rid of this suffering, one must realize they are nothing and ultimately can change nothing . With this realization, they can be rid of all attachments in/to this existence and be truly at peace. In life, one who adheres to this path will be in subsumed harmony with the Void rather than forcefully consumed by it, while in death they will become one with it, free of resurrection.”

The Void Eye Empire is a relatively new, yet advanced empire that can use a strange form of essence known as the Void Energy. They are an intelligent and mysterious race that currently inhabits the Andromeda and Mirus Galaxy.
Once located in Umbra region of the Andromeda galaxy between the New Tadpole Empire and the New Tertamian Alliance, the Void Eyes used the Gate to the Abyss to move their entire space to the Reaper's Grasp of the Mirus Galaxy. They have recently reached 10'000 systems there and found a good and safe place for them and their alliance to stay under the radar of their enemies.
Usually, they are neutral to nearly all races. They can tolerate insults and unfriendliness better than most races do as they understand that other races only hate them because they fear the Void Energy. But if somebody is friendly to them, then they are friendly in return. They also nearly never attack first, just if there is no other choice left for them.
After they found the core of the Gate to the Abyss on their homeworld, it has bound them into one religion, one belief, one web. It has given them the power to speak telepathically. They seem to worship no deity, but instead the Void itself. They are also part of the Orism, the most ancient and peaceful branch of Voidism.
Currently, just 3 military types of ships are used, Great Eye-ships, Void Eye-ships, Watcher Eyes. Their current military consists of 100 Great Eye-ships, 1000 Void Eye-ships and 10000 Watcher Eyes. All Void Eyes can use tier 1 Void Techniques and their military is able to use tier 2 Void Techniques. Though they prefer their space fleet over infantry.
When the Void Eye Empire was formed by the current 2 leaders 30 years ago, at the moment of becoming space-faring, the Void Eyes didn't know anything about the Void and were just a normal technocracy. The science prospered in those days, many new technologies were invented and the empire bloomed. That is when they detected strange black fog coming from below the ground on their homeworld. A group of Void Eyes along with the two leaders were sent to the origin of the fog.
It was coming from a giant crack in the ground, when they investigated, they found an ancient Void relic, the core of the Gate to the Abyss. Then, Overmind proceeded to find a way to open it, but when he finally did it, the relic released a small wave of draining nothingness that instantly consumed the whole crew, but Overmind and Overlord, who jumped into the only safe field where Overmind stood opening the Gate and survived. The two saw the Gate opening, when suddenly, a large completely black orb formed itself inside and emitted such an energy wave that not only reached over the whole planet, but also converted every Void Eye there into a Void Zealot that could use tier 1 Void techniques. The religion was created afterwards based on the ancient Nyarqueshian writings on the Gate to the Abyss.
In the following years the Void Eyes mastered the usage of black holes using the Void Energy. But their newly received power did not come without cost, all the nearby Zealot empires declared a holy war against the Void Eyes in the name of Spode. So they fought, many lives were lost during that war and the Zealots were winning, so Overmind decided that there is no other solution to it than using the Gate itself against the self-proclaimed servants of Spode. Nothing remained of those Zealots other than the Void itself after that. When the war was over and the empire recovered from it, they finally went in contact with the whole Gigaquadrant.

The Scientific Relic Search Competition: The Void Eyes are searching the Void relics.
Clouds over Null: Their first major war against the Volver Empire and its allies.
After they found the core of the Gate to the Abyss on their homeworld, they began to develop their own technology based on the Void. They possess much knowledge on black holes, wormholes and gravity. Their study on the black holes has given them the power to extract energy out of the rotating black holes and to create smaller black holes. The energy extraction from the black holes is very efficient because there are many of them in the Umbra region.
The Gate to the Abyss
Only a few things are known about The Gate to the Abyss, it seems to be a gigantic artifact from which the Void is coming from. It was created long ago, in the time of Nyarqueshu. In its current form, it is very condensed and limited in power, but should it be reassembled, it would become capable of immense power.
Currently the Void Eyes are in possession of four other Void relics, which form the second layer of the Gate to the Abyss.

Insert your quotes here:
“ANALYSIS: DESIGNATION 'VOID EYE' SHOWN USAGE OF VOID-RELATED ESSENCE PHENOMENA. THREAT LEVEL ELEVATED RO MAXIMUM DUE TO USAGE OF VOID-RELATED ESSENCE PHENOMENA. AVOID CONTACT WHEN POSSIBLE.”
“How distraught one must be, to be bullied and at war with so many of the galaxy because of a type of essence you use. How distraught may a fledgling empire such as the Void Eyes be when they are forced to defend their homeland against galactic powers because they feel "threatened".
The Gigaquadrant has made a huge mistake with the idea of 'crusading the Void'. You have only convinced another civilization to fall down the path of darkness. I applaud you for your stupidity.”
“Fellows of the faith, true of path and broken of chains. May the Void bind us all.”
- - Iloburaas of the Crimson Splinter
“Heretics! Though they might not give worship to the False God That Will Come against whose return we fought, their use of his abominable energies damns them forever in the al-seeing eye of the One God! Lay but a single evil gaze upon our allies and there will be a holy reckoning, this I swear in Its name!”
- - Loda'Gadem of the Mirusian Theocratic Congregation
“Ah come on! First the Crystallines and now this madness! I mean c'm on! The Void!? We were supposed to have dealt with that! Ugh...Nox really can't be sought for in peace, can it? Well, start consuming wildlife or anything natural for that matter and you'll have it coming.”
- - Oji'b of the Waptoria Alliance of Species
“Interesting... Potential allies maybe or maybe not, better stay on their good side. Not even the Legion at their full strength would be able to stand a fighting chance, the only one I can see being able to fight them are "The sons of the traitor" they betrayed us for power so I can see them wanting to fight these in the name of their lord”
“Hmm... This "Void Energy" seems extremely Powerful. I don't think I should use that, lest I end up Destroying our Homeworld...”
- - Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire
“Your choices to use this void energy will eventually lead to your own downfall. Remember this.”
“Channelers of the Null, beseeched by Uninitiated. Righful lords of an energy feared by fools.”

“I despise your kind and everything you believe, the universe is full of suffering yes but equally full of beauty for one cannot exist without the other. The fact that my kind have suffered far worse then yours, manipulated by alien gods, quarantined like a disease, forced from our homeland to wander, enslaved, and discriminated against, and we still choose to believe that this a world worth living in speaks volumes about what you are. Pathetic, you are utterly pathetic, not even worth my hatred only my disgust.”
“Void Energy is an extremely dangerous thing, it puts the user into the void where they become insane. Empires like the Void Eye Empire are beyond saving and their ignorance means they are at very high risk of becoming absorbed into this horrible darkness.”
- - Grand Chief General Sutrect Dill Sonthec of the Lsjanpodos
“We have interacted only once and the Void Eye Empire was curt in their welcome, yet I sense that the others' distrust is justified.”
“So while browsing our Neighbour's Communication Logs, we saw that their Friends were talking about you having Black Spice. That sounds Intriguing! If you are interested, we could trade your Black Spice for our White Spice. What do you think?”
- - Krz'at Kor, Trade Manager of the Chonostonian Republic, Sending a Trade Offer
“I would like to thank you here, from my new Vessel on this Rogue Planet. You really are a great Empire. These other Empires seem to all be way too biased because of this "Void Energy" and think you are evil, when all you are is misunderstood.”
“The Heart of Magic is Nature. The Nature of Hearts is Magic. The Void is just as deserving as the rest.”

“I wonder if Galactic Conflict would be keen on making merchandise of this war...”
- - Tyrolox, wondering if he can increase his action figure collection.
“The Void Eye Empire gave us the Void Tech, and we will be forever grateful for that! It allowed we the JGrox to develop the Void Shamanism, that have the best and avoid the worst of the Voidism! Harmonize the Void is the least we can do to atone for the sins of our ancestors!”
“Another child of the other to seek redemption. I have taken note of you. Worry not, I shall be merciful. I ask only that you accept the truth. ”
