Ethnicity of Tidan

Tidan consists of primarily two races. The dominant today is human, ancient celtic, who make up around 90% of the population and make up the leadership. The other is Arderial who were the original inhabitants of Tidan but today are a small remnant of their former power.



Before Tidan became over 90% human it was entirely Arderial. The Avian humanoids lived on the rocky world of Kharik prefering to live in the peaks and hunt in the lush valleys. They were very isolationist and prefered not to venture far into the galaxy. They had contact with a few neighboring empires like that of The Humankind Abh who visited their world several times during history. They built several large stations and became an important link in the trade routes through their part of the galaxy. In this way they discovered much about the universe around them and the inhabitants of it without leaving their home. After the discovery of the celts and their integration into Tidani society, Tidan suffered a pre-emptive strike from Mirror-Universe Tidan during the time of a large incursion of Mirror Nations centering around Nova Bazalonia. The biological weapon killed most Arderials and embedded itself in Kharik's ecosystems slowly killing the planet. After this holocaust the human faction of Tidan would take over the leadership role of Tidan and the Arderial Survivors have yet to recover.


Earthling Humans. Ancient Celts, taken from Earth during its iron age. They were taken from Earth to be transplanted on a suitable planet on the other side of the galaxy. No one knows who was responsible for the action or what motives they had. For unknown reasons the ship they had travelled in ceased function inside Tidani space. The Arderials rescued the celts from cryosleep and salvaged the ship. The Arderials gave them a home on their planet and have helped the celts advance technologically. Although not overly hostile, the Celts are very militaristic and much of their culture focuses on war.


Tidan's government is ruled by the King. The King accepts the existance of the House of Clans and allows them control over many policies.

The King

The King is the ruler and figurehead of Tidan. In the past the people have prefered to choose Kings from warlords or military heros and rarely come from lines. The current King, Kerain I, is a retired general who is very highly respected.

House of Clans

The House of Clans is a Parliament of all the clans in Tidan. They meet here to find consensus on issues, discuss matters of importance, bring forward the needs of their clans, and bring matters before the King. While they hold no power over the higher concerns of the government, they have been given much authority over civilian and local interests. The King often monitors meetings of the House of Clans and can be requested to attend at any time. To the King the House of Clans is a way of hearing the concerns and needs of the people of Tidan directly and giving the people some feeling of control over their lives while they allow the military to deal with the more important things like galactic relations.

The Navy is responsible for Tidan's sovereignty and defense. This national force falls under the under the authority of the King. The department is divided into four major offices: Naval Command, Future Initiatives Division, Strategic Production Division, and Eclipse.

The Navy is a priority for Tidan and receives the second most funding of all government deparments. They are kept equiped with state-of-the-art equipment and receive galaxy class training. All citizens are required to serve in the Navy for at least two years, in the branch of their choosing. If demand is too uneven the recruits will be spread around. In the event that citizens are unable to serve, they are encouraged to serve in logistics. Manditory service bolsters the Navy's ranks, enstils pride and patriotism, and teaches descipline.

Eclipse is Tidan's Intelligence Agency. Though it is still a military organization under the command of the Navy, the necessary amount of secrecy involved in its working and autonomy given to it eventually resulted in an independent and parallel department. Eclipse falls under the direct command of the King who oversee and coordinate its endeavors and objectives with the rest of the Navy. Other departments, especially the NavCom, resent Eclipse because of the regularity with which agents appear within their ranks. Eclipse's mandate is to keep the political and military leadership informed of everything going on internally and externally, perform clandestined actions of the government, and to keep the government accountable. Fanatical devotion to these goals is instilled in the service, they see themselves and the knowledge they gather as the true power of the people of Tidan.
