The Jedi have been wiped from the galaxy.
Yet like a foul bacteria they will not fade easily and will once again spread their heretical and rebellious teachings unless they are hunted down and destroyed.
The galaxy is under Imperial rule and it is their right, their purpose to ensure that the people never again have to bare witness to the fearful control of the Jedi or their puppets.
This is the era of the Imperial.
This is mission of the United Imperial Inquisition.
Welcome to THE ODACAI.
For thousands of years, since the arrival of the Wan'anteen in a date beyond the memory of every archive, database and library in the galaxy, Ra'Katha has been plagued by conflict. Petty skirmishes, resource wars, and power grabs made by despots, would-be chieftains and rulers hungry for dominion have kept Ra'Katha in the past while the galaxy has surged ahead without it.
But for no longer.
The powers of Ra'Katha have united, driven together by a common purpose. Ra'Katha has been revitalized, her economy reestablished and her place in the galaxy there for the taking. Fate is fluid, and the Republic of Ra'Katha is determined to mold fate to her own likening.
Religious Fanaticism has kept the Galaxy in a Technological Pit. Progress is slow, Knowledge is hoarded by Dogmatic Groups proclaiming themselves as Saviours and the people of the Galaxy have Suffered. Since the dawn of Hyperpsace Travel, the same routine between the same warring groups has been perpetuated millennia after millennia. It is time for Change.
The Emergence Empire is the Imperial Extension of the Cassum Cabal. Governed by the Four Superiex, it aims to purge the Galaxy of Jedi and Sith alike. Ideologies that deify the Force and by extension quell Technological Advancement, hoarding Knowledge only for themselves are the Enemies of the People, of Science and of the Natural Order.
A private mercenary and security contractor, Jinata Security was recently reestablished by Lannis Morcus, an influential member of the Core Imperial Confederation, to serve as both another financial enterprise to add to his many operations, but also as a private military purposely equipped and funded to serve his own interests when required.
Funded and equipped by a number of wealthy financial backers, and reportedly elements of the Core Imperial Confederation, Jinata Security has amassed a considerable amount of troops, military surplus and even a notable fleet to ensure the company is capable of handling any situation it's contracted to face.
Once an evil government that controlled the Galaxy, the Eternal Empire had shrunk considerably over time. Though it still maintains power in it's capital of Zakuul, they had focused less on ruling the Galaxy and moreso on their mandate of eternal survival. With the fall of much of the First Order's influence in the area, the Eternal Empire now has the opportunity to rise in power again.
Neither Dark nor Light, they abide by their own laws and do what they must to ensure survival. The Scions have foreseen a brighter future, heralding an Eternal Empress that will empower them once more, bring about the return of the Eternal Fleet, as well as the Knights of Zakuul. And with that bring stability from Chaos to the region.
WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
Constant War, plain and simple.
The Alpha Protectorate is comprised of three powerful organisations: The Jast Shipwright Company, Private Mercenary Comapny's and Interstellar Mining Corporations. These groups both with questionable ties to the Imperialist of the Galaxy, have banded together in order to maximise their ability to drain the resources from numerous worlds within the sector. The Protectorate is the largest non-Major Faction operating within core space. Equipped with thousands of armed troops and hardware, the Protectorate strictly enforces its myriad territorial operations.
In the end they are a rogue Paramilitary force, operating with ruthless resolve to further their own ends, and the ends of their shareholders.
Collections of Admirals, with their Naval Vessels, Marine Battalions, and other services attached are the core force organization of the Protectorate. Sitting at three currently, with the potential for more, this force structure affords each Admiral their own troops, Ships, and Intelligence Assets to use as they wish
THE MILITARY TRIBUNE
A collection of Admirals and Generals, whom form a council that for now rules the affairs of the Protectorate. Admittance into the Council is easy to obtain, and each Commander within has proven their mettle in battle against the Commonwealths enemies. (NPC for now)
SPECIAL FLEET SERVICES
The shadows of war require special operators. A mix of Agent, Pilot and Commando, SFS move unseen in the background. Their primary duties bring them to quell rebellions, assassinate enemies, pilot, infiltrate, sabotage and be the unseen arm of the Protectorate. Their secondary directives are to counter and neutralize all foreign Intel services.
Hardy and armored. The Fleet Marines are the backbone of each battle-group, dropping into battle via drop pod and ship. They are the primary Martial might of the Protectorate, and have a background as former Provincial Forces. Almost exclusively they are Mercenaries and Freelance Soldiers fighting for pay.
Special Marines, equipped with power armor and Red Cloaks, the Praetorian Guard operate as the Elite of the Protectorate Military. Trained in every art and artifice of war, battle-hardened and conditioned, they bring a fearsome resolve to the battle field. Some call them fanatics or zealots, as they will stop at no cost to accomplish their mission.

The Galactic Republic
The Galactic Republic, commonly known as the Republic, is a federal parliamentary republic composed of many worlds spread across the galaxy. Led by it's Supreme Chancellor, The Galactic Republic upholds the fight for freedom and equality for all beings of the galaxy. The Republic adheres to it's legislative body, the Galactic Senate with the fight for freedom being controlled from the Republic's capital planet, Coruscant.
For the Republic
Knowledge is Power
The Galaxy is stuck. It is ruled by religious, primitive entities who want nothing but to hoard what they know nothing about and further no goals other than their own. There is no future that does not directly include themselves.
Arrogance, Dogmatism and Ignorance.
The Sith are Arrogant, The Jedi are Ignorant and Dogmatic. Together, these two ruling parties have kept this Galaxy in stagnation. The Cassum Cabal will change that. The Cabal is dedicated to the pursuit of Knowledge. Through Knowledge we gain Power, through Power, we will purge the Galaxy of primitive ideologies and usher in a new age. One of intelligence, of Enlightenment and Science. We will seek out what this Galaxy knows and we will learn. We will seek out those who intend to spread their ignorance, and we will cut them from the roots of life. We are the Founding Fathers of a New Age.
Knowledge is Power
Power is Strength
Strength is Victory
Victory is Dominion
You have received the calling and accepted our embrace.
Yet now you seek the true answers?
I am not here to tell you them, only to guide you to the path of self-discovery.
What I will tell you however will change everything.Sieger was a traitor.
A false prophet that took our teachings and butchered them for his own personal gain.
He was a thief who betrayed his brothers and sisters and created a twisted and false order that had no right to name of Ren.
Do you see them, these thin-blooded, mind-scrubbed children that have been birthed in our absence. These Inheritors of power that was taught by a man who had no right.
Now is our time to remove ourselves from the regions of space un-checked and head inwards, reforge our order and claim back what is ours.From the Shadow we shall be recast.
In Black we shall be reborn.
Brothers and Sisters.
When all others stand alone.
Having been born long Millenia before Dorin joined the republic the Baran Do were the force sensitives of their home planet. At first they were but predictors of disasters through their senses, but their meditation and use of the force began to grow. By the time they joined the republic the Baran Do sages had developed their traditions and powers considerably. They were advisors in use, and peace seekers within. Hence their focus on meditation. Even before they joined the Republic and many of them, and future generations, joined the Jedi, they had already developed considerable telekinesis, and even a form of force lightning. Fortunately or unfortunately, their joining of the Jedi so commonly diminished their numbers considerably to the point that they almost became mere myth. Barely holding on thanks to the little recruitment and families who sent their children to learn from them. During the Empire under Sidious they had gone into hiding out of fear, but ultimately reemerged when they saw that the Jedi had also survived.
However, they would never return to their full numbers they once had. While they had technically returned into the eyes of the universe, they were far from the most public. Perhaps still sticking instinctively to avoiding attention for a long time.
In 845 ABY however a new Master of the order was brought forth, Xos Drikre. While perhaps young to become the master of the order, being 36, the visions Xos so often experienced, along with his deep meditations that brought him from a conflicted naive child to a wiser prophet, advisor, and teacher.
The Master of the Order before Xos had begun to prepare the order for bringing more into it, perhaps he knew how willing the following leader would be to further the order. Whether or not he did, Xos did indeed continue with his actions, and now wishes to bring more into the order. To spread it's teachings, even to those who will not be under the title of Sage. If only to teach peace of mind and heart, and to help the universe in its eternal conflict as advisors, and, should the occasion call for it, protectors.
Teachings and commands: Above all else there are two things the Baran Do teach. They learn to obtain peace of mind and heart, for a culture so strong in the force physically, the Sages are among the most peaceful. After all it was only through meditation and the help of others that they became what they are. And secondary, is advising others. They strive to protect those who listen from natural disasters particularly, but have been known to take political positions for the same insight. Foresight and meditation are the only things any Baran Do will ever be expected to practice, and if they can only manage the meditation, then they will still be accepted. While they do limit their members to force sensitives, they do not reject their teachings to others. And openly profess their methods to those who choose to ask. What is expected is that, should they choose to fight, they are just and fair, and will never go farther then necessary. They are not an army or militia, they are more a way of living then anything else.
However, there are those that choose to take the path of combat, and for them there is instruction as well. The Baran Do do not employ lightsaber or blasters, or even bladed weaponry. Rather they practice martial arts and the use of a wooden staff. A simple, easy to employ weapon, and one which can be used by the unpracticed or the masters. They do not look down on those who choose to take this path, however they do expect them to continue their meditation as they can. This is a weapon that has passed from era to era and had millennia to grow, and while there is no necessity to learn it, there is plenty to learn about it.
Baran Do are also known for particular force powers, from their origins to the present. Visions, foresight, and precognition are the easiest to explain, which have come particularly from their meditations which are so ingrained in their society. And just as they began, enhanced senses are a common and easy to teach technique among its members, allowing them far more awareness and chances to guess at future situations, particularly in regards to disasters. This sensory ability is actually so akin to precognition of natural events that they consider them rather interchangeable under most conditions.
There are more powerful methods that they have learned among the Sages and Masters as well, Telekinesis being the most common and most powerful, as it is extremely useful to use against natural disasters and is their most practiced common ability. A sub-trait of it is creating whirlwinds, more common among those who have taken the position of Sages, but not implausible for a master to have. However, for an apprentice to possess this would indeed be unusual. There is one more trait that has continued practice deep from the past into the present, the use of a white force lightning, something that is unusually powerful and common given their peaceful nature and which also shows among both Masters and Sages, though with varying degrees just as whirlwind.
In more recent times, due to Xos's teachings when he was the Senior Combat Instructor, there are two more that have become somewhat more common. Telepathy, while rarely to the same level as Xos, is a little more common among those who are chosen as advisors of unusual situations. As it allows them to more efficiently communicate with others. In addition there is Force Barrier which has grown to be a somewhat more common trait, particularly used in group against bad situations to create a large powerful barrier to prevent anything getting through they don't want to.
There is one more technique, though more rare, called [url=https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Ayna-seff]Ayna-Seff[url] A technique that can be difficult to master, but ultimately quite worth it should one do so and find themselves in a fitting situation. However, used wrong, it can also pose dangers in storms by causing repeated lightning strikes on the user. It relates to suffusing electromagnetic radiation through the body to cause a variety of effects. It did however require two pieces of equipment to preform, a durasteel sphere and charged plate.
Master of the Order: Xos Drikre
Senior Combat Advisor
Senior Meditation advisor
Combat and meditation advisors
Senior Combat and Senior Meditation advisors are considered of the same rank, as are Combat and meditation advisors to each other. One individual can take both positions, however there is only one Senior Combat advisor and one Senior meditation advisor at a time presently. Masters are considered to be having completed any required training to be permanently considered a member, unless expelled, and are allowed to teach others as well. Sages however are considered to have proven that they can do more then help themselves and teach others, and that they can help those outside fo the order. Sages are often permitted to follow their own commands outside of the order, and because of this once one becomes a Sage they are allowed to participate in almost any external affair unless specifically changed by a Senior Advisor or the Master of The order (this has happened, but is rare). Master can participate in outside matters, but usually must do so either in a group, if it's a natural disaster (in which case even apprentices can get involved), or if permitted to by a Senior Advisor or the Master of the Order.
Any member can participate in time they see a moment of need, and while they are usually seen as having the right to make their own choice in moments of need. Should their actions be considered questionable, Investigators will look into it.
Investigators are something that Xos decided was best done. Having seen the secrets of so many, he realized that even though he was not as naive as before, and most weren't either, there was occasionally the necessity for internal analysis, and sometimes that of the outside world. Investigators are taught especially to learn to be able to see the specific history or pieces of something usually through meditation or focus while near the object or individual, allowing them to find things more easily. And are more often taught forms of telepathy. However, while it is their job to discover wrongdoing, they are usually only somewhat more attentive to their combative abilities as it is still not a requirement. Many investigators choose only to take up the job temporarily, or cycle in and out of it.
