The Ryunosian Empire
The ancient and war-like Ryunosian Empire has celebrated a millennia of conquering the stars. Their home planet of Ryunosa was once a melting pot of diversity, where dozens of different Ryunosian sub-species lived in peace. It wasn’t until a massive war changed that, and a genocide was carried out by one of the subspecies – Ryunosia-Alpha. This horrible act brought about a new age of unopposed power and unity to the planet, which found themselves space-bound within a century of this unification.

The Ryunosian Empire moved through the galaxy like wildfire. Each planet they found that was inhabited, they wrought terrible destruction. They demanded fealty, and became vassals of the Empire, which the sole purpose was to serve the Empire in any way they deemed necessary. Most notably, it was pressed into military service, or forced to construct ships for the Imperial Fleet.

The first resistance that the Ryunosian Empire ever encountered throughout their run of the galaxy was when they first encountered the Shavital. It was during a routine invasion of an inhabited system when the Shavital made contact with them, telling them of their mission of peace and unity, and an Intergalactic Council. The Ryunosians aggressively attacked the Shavital exploratory fleet, and made quick work of them – as the Shavital were unprepared for an assault. The Ryunosian routed the Shavital from the system, but only temporarily.

The Shavital returned with their fleet in tow. The Ryunosians were unprepared for the Shavital response so quickly, and were overwhelmed and captured. The Ryunosians had been using advanced jump technology to bounce across the galaxy, and were unfamiliar with the Shavital Gates. Since the Shavital had already deployed a Gate within the system, they were able to regroup quickly and launch a counter attack.

The invasion was being led by a high ranking Admirals in the Ryunosian Navy, and they were summarily interrogated. Through some careful negotiations and political maneuvering, The Ryunosian Empire was persuaded to join the Intergalactic Council, given that they owned a great many systems and would hold a great deal of sway. In addition to this, they also saw the power of the Shavital Gates, and wanted that technology for themselves.
