Information on the Xai AscendancyEdit

The Xai Ascendancy spans the entirety of the Ianthina Galaxy, better known to humanity as the Triangulum Galaxy, with an estimated 35 million worlds under its control. Countless trillions of Xai and subjected alien species all reside within the boundaries of the Ascendancy, all answering to the Patriarch of the Xai, Malakai Madora, and his near god-like court of aristocrats hailing from ancient families who have ruled the Xai for some five million years. With the power, resources, and manpower of an entire galaxy behind it, the Xai Ascendancy is easily one of the most powerful empires in the known universe to exist.

Government of the AscendancyEdit

Leading individualsEdit

  • High Sovereign: The High Sovereign is the supreme authoritive figure of the Xai Ascendancy, passing laws, proclamations, and acts of war and peace at his leisure. The most powerful Xai in all of existance, politically and psionically, the High Sovereign is the eldest of all the Xai, and thus regarded with great respect. The father of his people in all respects, the entirety of the Ascendancy willingly slaves for his sake. It should be noted that the High Sovereign treats his children with love and kindness, though his current political apparatus, however needed, has often caused him much strife.
  • Grand Justicar: The Grand Justicar of Xyon is the most feared Xai in the Ascendancy, for she represents the harsh law of the vast interstellar empire of the Xai. Imfamous for their uncomprimising, black and white views of law and justice, the Grand Justicar is often the most hated political and judicial figure of the Xai, often causing more harm to her own people than good. The current Grand Justicar of the Xai is regarded to be the worst yet, her actions having killed countless hundreds of thousands of Xai for minor infractions.
  • Supreme Warmaster: The Supreme Warmaster is the leader of the Obsidian Guard, the collection of various military forces protecting the Xai Ascendancy. Physically and mentally imposing, the Supreme Warmaster is the most dangerous Xai in all of existance in terms of raw strength. Whereas the High Sovereign fights politically and the Grand Justicar behind the scenes, the Warmaster is a warrior first and politician second, and thus well-versed in all known and secret arts of combat.

Political bodiesEdit

  • Grand Assembly of Houses: The Grand Assembly of Houses is the legislative body of the Xai Ascendancy, consisting of the major and minor houses of the Xai, as well as representatives from the allied or subjugated species within the Ascendancy. Consisting of two and a half thousand members, two thousand from the Xai (two representatives per sector) and five hundred from the non-Xai species (one per race or group of races), the Grand Assembly plays a vital role in the Ascendancy, presenting the High Sovereign and his government with the woes and needs of his people, as well as serving as an intermediary between the worlds of Xyon and their leaders.

  • Fornication and adultery are grave sins. They destroy the trust and bond of the wedded couple. Purge the adulterers from your midst.
  • Xanus understands the needs of the woman which he created. Let her excercise her needs with her fellow woman if she must, for this is natural.

  • Let him rule with power, for Xanus wills it.
  • Let him establish a line to last to time indefinite, that shall never be brought to an end.
  • Should the Chosen of Xanus have no son but a girl, she shall not rule in his steed upon his passing. Instead, let the title of Chosen pass to another man with a household through trial of war.
  • Should the Chosen of Xanus abdicate, let his eldest brother or fellow Archon take his steed.
  • Should the Chosen of Xanus not be of age, let the Council of Archons reign in his steed upon such a time he may rule as a man.

  • This sea of stars must be yours to time indefinite.
  • Let a great many households be established to aid the Divine Herald reign, for the realm of Xanus shall be great and mighty.
  • May governorships and titles be distributed to them.
  • May the great houses obey the House of Xanus, for this is life for them and their households.

To the Ninth Truth (All the nations be yours to control.)
