Carant Federation of Aylathia
Cenadean Interstellar Union
Before Sedrua (Prior to 236,100 BCE)
Mostly undocumented, the history of the Aylothn region of space is very sparse prior to the rise of Sedrua. A very minute amount of relics and artifacts which do not originate from Sedrua have been detected. The most notable intergalactic events at this time seem to be the merging of galaxies, and the rising and falling of precursor empires. The application of these galaxies would form what is known as the Aylothn Sphere, and it exists today from these primordial events. With these events, life would spring forth and come together, sculpting the modern landscape of the Aylothn area.
As seen by a historic lack of life in several periods, it as known that many major civilizations have come to exist fruitfully in the domains of the Aylothn Galaxy. The names or origins of these empires are largely unknown, considering that any archives have been destroyed, lost, or kept in very low quality condition. Furthermore, the rampant rise and crumbling fall of Sedrua has removed much-needed evidence for any activity prior to 300,000 BCE. As such, many have been left to speculate. Officials from the nation of Sedrua have also given meager amounts of information relating to the political landscape of the Aylothn Galaxy of their time.
However, one known major civilization inhabited Commonwealth space long before the rise of the empire of Sedrua. This nation, referred to as the United Provinces, initially rose in the 500,000s BCE, prior to the creation of Sedrua and its expansion. The United Provinces civilization would later go on to influence much of the Aylothn Galaxy, and it is considered to be one of the most documented precursor empires of the area. Comparable to the size of the Commonwealth today, the United Provinces ruled over the Aylothn Galaxy with a gentle hand - until Sedrua began to gain foothold in the galaxy.
Sedruan Influence (236,100 BCE - 28,372 BCE)
A nation with a predisposition of major influence, Sedrua first formed in the Suvaren Field, long after the creation of the first of The Architects. Mother Sydiah created The Architects in order to project her power, and fulfill a set of prophecies. Believing that she was destined for true unity of the universe, Sydiah would begin to mass-produce The Architects, especially after the formation of Sedrua. In time, The Architects banded together and managed to form the Chosen of Sydiah, (Formerly known as the Creed of Sydiah) electing Mother Sydiah as the leader, with Vurilia Jiutopati as the co-leader. Soon after, the Creed would aid with the first major claims of Sedrua. Mother Sydiah would later assign many Architects to create even more, which would speed up the colonization process of the nation.
Soon after the full control of the Suvaren Field, Mother Sydiah had sights on the Aylothn Galaxy, seeing it as the next and most natural point of Sedruan progress. She soon sent the bulk of The Architects to the galaxy, leaving the rest to manage affairs in the Suvaren Field. As species would rise and remain cultivated under the guide of Sedrua, The Architects would arrive on many worlds, using their power to subdue sapient species, create numerous megastructures, and let Sedrua rise in a blistering speed yet peaceful manner.
This was, until the United Provinces civilization found out about Sedrua, who arrived directly by their borders. There would exist a short period of co-existence, which soon turned into an open rivalry after only a few centuries. The prospect of full-blown war was not necessarily an option by either Sedrua or the United Provinces though, and they existed in a very sour relationship for many millennia. Diplomacy was ineffective and Sydiah's mindset of domination was enough for Sedrua to eventually show their force.
By the time of the 226,000s BCE, Sedrua was ready to start conflict with the largest force in the Aylothn Galaxy. The Architects managed to subdue numerous species and micro nations under the foot of Sedrua. The United Provinces, seeing the encroaching nature of Sedrua, began a set of limited proxy warfare, attempting to create a set of their own Magi before they thought Sedrua would attack. Only a few decades later, on the year of 225,967 BCE, Sedrua would unleash a massive assault of armed Magi, Architects, and the subjugated forces of several species. This conflict, named the Aylathia's Siege, was the first major documented war in the history of the Aylothn Galaxy. Both nations would embark on one of the most damaging wars in history.
Through the development of the Aylathia's Siege, the United Provinces would lose countless systems at a rapid pace, thanks to the dexterity and efficiency of The Architects. The United Provinces attempted to launch their own program of Magi as well, though it was ineffective and powerless against the growing might of Sedrua. After only eight hundred years, the United Provinces crumbled from within, allowing Sedrua to take the space of the fallen empire. Rebellion was common at this time, though further subjugation and small-scale warfare would dampen and soon extinguish any hope for the United Provinces. At this time, was known to uplift and integrate many species, especially the Arkhos, which was the U.Ps most prominent species. Other would be found outside its borders, such as Timporians, Zythyns, Viphians, and the Carants.
By now, Sedrua was the most prominent nation in the Aylothn Galaxy. Their expansion was only beginning as well, with Mother Sydiah and her mercenaries relishing the fruits of war. Their empire would go on to rapidly fill the void of the United Provinces. Sedrua's might would not waver after many millennia, and over the course of 40,000 years, Sedrua would take control over most of the Aylothn Galaxy. They would later expand into the Via Sagittaria Galaxy under the direct watch of Mother Sydiah, who would create numerous Architects in order to enforce distant claims. The Eyes of Sedrua would also be utilized heavily as it was set up all across many galaxies.
Through more centuries of unending expansion, the nation of Sedrua would soon reach its height, after twenty thousand years of further development. The time frame of the 167,000s was the absolute peak of Sedrua, as their influence was unparalleled in all fields of civilization. However, this would mark the beginning of a guttural decline for the most prominent nation of its time. Mother Sydiah, seeing a slow in Sedrua's influence, believed that it was best to rapidly create more Architects, under her own will and jurisdiction. These new Architects were promised to be the strongest ones of the time, allowing Sedrua to gain quicker levels of influence in distant areas. The general decline and death of other Architects also prompted their production. In the year of 166,930 BCE, Mother Sydiah decided to use her psychokinetic power to its fullest extent, attempting to enforce her dream of domination.
The Wane of Reality and Events Beyond (166,930 - 28,372 BCE)
Upon the use of her wide range of power, Mother Sydiah expected to create an army of new Architects, which would go on to re-enforce stability through sparser regions of Sedrua. However, her actions backfired entirely, which ended up crating a massive fracture in reality. This fracture, which soon opened up to the Aeterna Caligne, took Mother Sydiah and created Sydiah's Hinterlands. The site of Irchec was created in the Suvaren Field, at the spot of her disappearance. Thousands of other dangerous sites began to appear in the vicinity of Sedruan space, reaching as far as Via Sagittaria as evidenced from Heracles. Numerous anomalies, threats, and hazards began to flood their way into space.
Upon the creation of the Hinterlands and the disappearance of Mother Sydiah, the nation of Sedrua was thrown into relative turmoil. Numerous worlds were lost as the military and the combined might of The Architects was unable to stop all areas of danger. The government of Sedrua was also in chaos, and eventually Vurilia Jiutopati by members of the was chosen to be the new leader, chosen for his high level of skill of leadership, diplomacy, strength, as well as his allegiance towards Sedrua. After Vurilia was selected, he began a slow process of stabilizing the various areas of the Aylothn area under his control, and attempted to rebuild lost forces. This would prove to be helpful in the end, as Vurilia's forceful form of leadership coaxed the nation forth. By the year of 163,000 BCE, Sedrua had recovered enough of their former might to continue expanding.
As the years went on, Sedrua's power continued to decline. Eventually, the Chosen of Sydiah became too strong and oppressive to the people of Sedrua, causing distant regions to assume control. Resistance would rise, though many would perish at the hands of The Architects. Even so, several organizations managed to break free, and by the year 127,000 BCE, Sedrua was faced with very high levels of internal strife. In order to bring peace to the nation, a council was formed, made up of many influential individuals from the nation. They also consisted of the Oculus of Truth, a specially designed AI which contained the souls of many deceased Architects. This would be the last attempt to restore the glory of Sedrua, though stagnation would become the norm as Vurilia began to have other plans for the nation.
In its wake, several independent organizations filled the void of Sedrua. No major exterior action would be taken for many millennia, as Vurilia held thoughts of relative isolationism and abandonment of needless space. While Sedrua still existed at a mighty extent, it was evident that there were tendencies of a regional collapse, as some territory in the Via Sagittaria Galaxy began to slip helplessly out of Sedrua's hand. The first glaring signs of this came at the year of 99,871 BCE, when the Triumvirate Civilization was established in the Ventemir Galaxy. Sedrua's influence would be challenged repeatedly then on.
The year of 98,000 BCE marked the beginning of Sedrua's first true decline. Relative abandonment, unrest, and a new isolationist mindset swept the nation, causing territory in Via Sagittaria to quickly dwindle. Satellites of Via Sagittaria, all of Via Lacrimosa, and distant satellites of the Aylothn Galaxy were losing Sedrua's influence by the year. Development on Sedrua's deep territory accelerated however, and its galactic power would stay relatively the same.
By the time of the 90,000s BCE, a new nation named the Septet Alliance of Free Aligned Nations (SAFAN) would form in the Orithyia Spiral. It would rapidly expand, challenging regional Sedruan territory. The expansion of foreign nations further implemented a sense of isolationism, which led to many systems falling into the SAFAN and Triumvirate sphere of control. Sedrua was forced to make use of the Eyes of Sedrua in order to maintain stability, and not much more would happen for many years.
It would be the year of 50,406 BCE before Sedrua finally entered another stage of decline. By then, all territory by the Via Sagittaria Galaxy fell and satellites of the Aylothn Galaxy became harder to control. It was with the death of numerous Architects, as well as the increasing destabilization of the leaders did Sedrua fall again. By the 50,000s, Sedrua removed its assets from the Orithyia Spiral, letting the SAFAN flourish. Further increase of isolationist ideals essentially made it a tradition as well, with Sedrua advancing their homeland and letting go of territory seen as unnecessary.
Only twenty thousand years after however, Sedrua would be challenged by corruption once again. The gradual loss of The Architects made the government tighten its control, hoping to retain the old power and glory which they once held. By the year 31,300 BCE, groups of dissidents would rise against the corrupt leadership of Sedrua. These rebels would eventually gain the support of neighboring territories, and began a campaign of destruction and chaos in the region. Organizations typically focused on Sedrua's regression, inability of action, and general isolationism as a sign of weakness. So, many took it upon themselves to forcefully separate from Sedrua. The Architects were also involved, with many of them thinking that Sedrua grew weak and helpless.
It was only a few thousand years after when Sedrua lost its grip on Peleunsk, leaving it devoid of influence. As a response, Sedrua thought about cancelling its trend of regression. They wanted to re-establish itself in space, but was met with a great deal of resistance. Many were in support of expansion, though others believed that it would cause more turmoil or corruption. This would be fought back and forth with the minds of the people as the nation continued to slowly regress. In Peleunsk however, a new civilization would begin to brew. One which would become known as the Lowzyol Federation. A nation which would challenge Sedrua's authority.
