The time and place for diplomacy has passed. Today, we mark the beginning of our struggle and we shall not rest until not only Cyrandia, but the entire Gigaquadrant is free from the yoke of the Empire. For Cyrandia!

- Sesoka

The Cyrandia Resistance is a rebel organisation active throughout the Cyrandia Cluster which seeks to topple the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus and bring about a return of pre-Imperial institutions of peace such as the United Republic of Cyrannus and the Cyrandia Alliance, as well as the end of the Nim-Glaré Concordat which imposed the status of protectorate against Rambo Nation. The ties between the Resistance and the New Cyrannian Republic is unclear, even to Imperial Intelligence, though many in the Empire's upper echelons suspect that the Resistance is funded and armed by the emboldened New Republic in the final months of the New Cyrandia Wars, working to undermine the Empire from within.

HistoryEdit

OriginsEdit

ShadowMeeting

The last thing we need is our... alliance to start another war."
"That is the last thing we want. We are not trying to break away from the Empire, per ce, we are trying to reform it into the Republic that this Gigaquadrant needs.''

- Raen Magalen and Mer Mirea on Orbispira during the Dark Times

Though the organisation proper was not revealed until the last year of the New Cyrandia Wars, over five years after the fall of the United Republic of Cyrannus, the origins of the Resistance date back to the very same hour in which the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus arose from the ashes of the United Republic of Cyrannus, bringing with it conquest, fear and tyranny. Within the first few days, unintentional new Imperial senators such as Raen Magalen, Mer Mirea and Sola Naberraé organised constant meetings to discuss the Emperor's newfound stranglehold over the galaxy, over night transforming Cyrannus into what was once considered the grandest beacon of democracy and prosperity into a place of ruthless imperialism. Clearly in the mind of these senators, something needed to be done. By 02 NE, Senator Magalen, Mirea, Ramdard Ramthrace and others began seriously considering betraying the Empire in a bid to reform the Empire back into a Republic. However, by the end of the year such a task was deemed impossible. Meanwhile, individuals such as Sesoka joined their rebel groups into a larger network, carrying out occasional attacks on Imperial targets throughout the Outer Rim. The Subjugation of Nahdar in 03 NE also drove many Mon Nahdar into joining the resistance.

Early OperationsEdit

But how do you plan on raising such an armed rebellion? How do you supply them with arms and goods?"
"All of our worlds have small armed resistances. In theory, we could band them together. My wealth would fund the resistance while Niathan would provide our ships while Ramthrace and Magalen could supply our soldiers."

- Ramdard Ramthrace and Mer Mirea, 02 NE

The formation of the New Cyrannian Republic in the closing months of 03 NE soothed the minds of many Imperial officials tiresome of rebel attacks. However, in truth it only bolstered the resolve of the remaining rebel groups, which joined to form a true galactic resistance in the shadows. Though not officially sanctioned or supported by the Republic, the Resistance began heavily associated with it, with many considering it to be the perfect tool for the Republic to chip away at their foremost rivals. Indeed, many officers and senators loyal to the Republic such as Val Niathan, Selanius, Sola Naberraé and Ramdard Ramthrace pledged their support for the Resistance, while others such as Apollo and Willelmus Cretacea are considered more private supporters due to their high ranking public positions.

Though the Vasubandian Rebellion led by Tyermaillin attempted to gain the allegiance of the still shadowy Republic resistance groups within the Empire during the New Cyrandia Wars, the leadership of the Resistance refused each time, claiming that they worked to achieve a galaxy free from oppression, not one under the yoke of the Basileus.

War for Capricaerón

I remember a time when things were better on Capricaerón. The Empire promises you order, but think; consider what the Empire has done to your lives, your family and your freedoms. Unless we stand up and fight back, it's only going to get worse. I know many of you are afraid, but we cannot allow that to paralyse us into inaction. We may fear the Empire's strength and their power to crush those who oppose them, but if we all stand up together, they are the ones who will learn to fear us! Everyone, I implore you stand up for your rights as civilised beings and cast down thi-

- Fleur Inviere speaks in a disguised voice in an address to the people of Capricaerón

During the closing stages of the New Cyrandia Wars, the Resistance surprised the Gigaquadrant with a massive coordinated strike against the Libertus homeworld of Capricaerón, a world with noted Republic-leanings. Led by General Sesoka, the Resistance fleet attacked Capricaepolis with a ferocity which gave the Empire pause, ultimately leading to a bitter battle for control over the city and by extension, the entire system. However, to the surprise of the Resistance forces, their fight had given the New Republic an excuse to annex the system under its own flag in exchange for Republic involvement in the war against the Imperial State. After the battle, the Resistance and the Republic left on good terms, with the former consolidating the survivors of the battle for their next strike.

Cyrannian Cold WarEdit

Ezduiin Incident

We must strike soon. Keep the momentum of our campaign going, even after what happened to the Alliance. Especially after what happened to them...

- General Sesoka

In the two years since the War for Capricaerón, the Resistance was kept on the run by the Empire's forces. In order to gain momentum for the movement, in the wake of the destruction of the Capricorn Remnant Alliance, General Sesoka and the other leaders met on the Liberty to discuss a bold plan to kidnap the mysterious Imperial Overseer, who had ruthlessly led the Imperial military since the Battle of Nandóband during the New Cyrandia Wars.

Receiving intelligence from Senator Sola Naberraé that the Overseer was planned to visit the Ezduiin Space Station, the Resistance sent a special operations team led by the Alavar Mai-Li to capture the mysterious Imperial. Ultimately however, the entire team was killed by the Phaedric Lord Cythonia—dealing a significant blow to the morale of the Resistance. To complicate matters even more, the Empire pressed its efforts to hunt down rebel cells, managing to hunt them down or threaten their existence. To survive, the Resistance scattered into a loose network of rebel cells that operated across the Cluster where only the Resistance Command knew of each cells existence. It send operatives to keep in touch with the various cells or to conduct missions for Resistance. This way, Resistance Command ensured the survival of the Resistance at whole.

A Growing Resistance

By 20 AQF, the desperate Resistance were surprised by the emergence of the Rambo Loyalist with goals to put the Le Rambo Dynasty back on the throne of Rambo Nation and would see the destruction and defeat of the Empire. Led by Lord Ramannis Le Rambo on board the modified Munificent-Class Loyalist One, the Resistance gained a new sub-cell that signalled the awakening of dissidents within the Quadrant Galaxies and gave the Resistance new hope to regain their spirit to fight the Empire in not only the Cyrannus Galaxy, but in the entire Cyrandia Cluster. The Resistance was growing and was getting better supplied now that Quarantia individuals began supporting the Resistance as well. Slowly the Resistance expanded its numbers and cells as the Free Osteola Rebel Cell and the Creeper Cabel joined their cause as well. Undermining the Empire where both the New Republic and Rambo Nation could not.

Battle of Ambar
Battle of Ambar

The Battle of Ambar was the first Resistance victory over the Empire in a decade, fought in 15 NE.

General Sesoka would later come into contact with the nascent Aldárae Order, which contacted Resistance Command in preparation of an assault on the Imperial holding of Ambar, home to the Miluiel. Through Master Alinor Nanuq, the Resistance coordinated closely with the Aldár through intermediaries, uniting the Resistance under a single banner for the first time since Imperial reprisal for the Ezduiin Incident. Striking from hidden bases, Resistance starships began the Battle of Ambar, fighting valiantly to rid the Empire from Ambar. During the battle, hundreds of Resistance vessels were destroyed, including the flagship Liberty, at the cost of Fleet Commander Val Niathan.

Nevertheless, the battle ended with a Resistance victory, though in order to ensure the survival of the movement, Sesoka once again bid the Resistance fleet to deploy across the Cyrandia Cluster, away from Imperial supply lines. Several weeks later, the Second Great Cyrannus War broke out across the Gigaquadrant pitting the New Republic against the Empire. During the opening stages of the conflict, Sesoka gained command of a new flagship he christened the Emancipator and soon travelled to United Persan Descendants-held space, where the Resistance was offered sanctuary within the hidden Persan capital of Naamah—a world in which the Empire would assuredly never discover.

AdministrationEdit

Civil GovernmentEdit

Though inspired by the legacy of the United Republic of Cyrannus and unlike the New Cyrannian Republic, the Cyrandia Resistance is not organised to effectively govern space. Rather, it is an unapologetic military resistance which does not claim to be the legitimate government of the galaxy. This tactic is much unlike the Republic in Exile active during the Dark Times which followed the mantra that the Republic would win out against the Empire by simply ignoring it, under the impression that it would inevitably collapse from within. Rather, the Resistance believes that the New Republic is the legitimate government of the galaxy and that though they do not fight against the Empire openly, they should use the Resistance to fight them from within.

The Resistance does however have a civil government of sorts, used to tend to the needs of worlds under their fold and at times organise popular resistances against the Empire on their own worlds. That said, most of the day-to-day running of worlds under the Resistance's sphere of influence is left to planetary governments rather than the overarching Resistance leadership, which is content to leave such matters to planetary administrations and officials.

The Resistance does however elect a figurehead every two years to represent the public face of their fight against the Empire. The convention signed by the civilian and military leaders of the Resistance claims that once the Empire collapses and peace is restored to the Empire, the President of the Resistance will agree to abolish both his or her office and the Resistance itself, transferring its authority over to the New Republic and the reinstated Cyrandia Alliance. Unofficially, the title is held by Sesoka, though with the departure of Senator Raen Magalen, his wife Kyrsá Nimrais retains much of his political influence.

CellsEdit

The main Resistance gained supporters over the years, whether by cells, cabals or guilds. These cells are smaller sections of the Resistance who are not part of the main fleet unless required or called upon. To ensure the safety of Resistance and its leaders the cells are unaware of each other existence until the time comes to join forces together. The various cells keep in touch by the use of contacts send by the Resistance leadership and operate independent from each other on different missions.

Military and DefenceEdit

The military arm of the Cyrandia Resistance lacks the organised nature of the Imperial Military or that of the New Republic, though the passion and determination of the men and women who fight to bring down the Empire cannot be understated. Led by figures such as Sesoka, Val Niathan and secretly others such as Rambas II, the Resistance fields a wide range of capable officers and soldiers who include those who left the Republic Navy after the end of the Great Cyrannus War, to members of factions such as the Republic Remnant, the Confederacy of Allied Systems and the Capricorn Remnant Alliance amongst many others. Though it also receives support from officers within the New Republic, not to be underestimated are those who defect from the Empire to fight against the government they once served in their fight for a free Cyrannus.
