“We are a storm, Lord Meketanor, a storm that the galaxy requires. We are the enlightened beings, willing to make the decisions necessary to extinguish our foes, be it the contagious body politic of the Republic or the resurgent Light. We will wash away the useless, the complacent and remake the galaxy as we see fit. The future may be transient, but if we grasp at the proper moment, it will all proceed as planned—the ruination of the Republic, the final expunging of the Light and the continuation of our rule into perpetuity.”
Tyrómairon, known as the Vector of Order and later, the Vector of Darkness, is a preeminently powerful Oikoumene, feared across the cosmos as the enigmatic Galactic Emperor of the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus, while maintaining a more secret identity as the manipulative Dark Lord of the Mornûnendur. The details of how this dark figure came into existence remains unknown, however he was revered and even feared among his fellow Oikoumene, with the knowledge that he was the most powerful member of the Tribe being well known. His might was unrivalled and his intellect was matched only by his wife, Libraé. As the supreme leader of the Oikoumene's military, he commanded the military forces of entire galaxies, the most elite of which were the so called "Warriors of the Revelation", which eventually became known as the feared Mornûnendur. Leading this frightening force, he put down countless alien rebellions against the Oikoumene during the early part of the Apotheosis Era in the Oikoumene's history.
When the rest of the Tribe mysteriously vanished, Tyrómairon had his subordinates sealed on planets scattered across the universe, before finally locking himself away on an unknown world, all the while forming an intricate and dark plan. When he finally awakened during the Intergalactic War, he set this plan into motion, being instrumental in various key events throughout the Gigaquadrant in the pursuit of his lofty goals. A machiavellian figure to the very core, Tyrómairon manipulated an entire galactic conflict in order to bring about the fall of the two reigning super powers and replace them with a single Oikoumene-led Empire.
As the Emperor of the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus, Tyrómairon became known and feared across the Gigaquadrant for his leadership of the new Gigaquadrantic hyperpower, extending his influence throughout the known galaxies of the universe, bringing order, peace but high levels of suspicion wherever he directed his ultraterrestrial gaze. Despite existing in such a high position of power, Tyrómairon's origins and identity as an Oikoumene are unknown to all but a select few, but most others incorrectly identifying him as Miluiel. Nevertheless, behind this exterior lies Tyrómairon's true motives; the domination of all sentient species under Oikoumene, or more specifically his, rule.
“You provide all the more reasons for us not to falter in our loyalty to the beliefs that have kept the Oikoumene strong since the beginning. We must teach these primitives to stand with us, not against us. We must maintain order in the mother galaxy. If they refuse to cooperate peacefully, we must consider an act of occupation until they come to their senses.”
- - Tyrómairon on the ongoing rebellions during the Apotheosis Era
The details about the origins of the Oikoumene, including Tyrómairon himself, is unknown. It can be assumed however, that he is billions upon billions of years old and spent most of these countless years as the supreme leader of the military of the Oikoumene. Under his watch, the Oikoumene's military became the mightiest fighting force of it's time, harnessing the power of countless galaxies. His personal army was soon established, known as the Warriors of Revelation, though they soon became known as the Mornûnendur.
In these early days, he was known as the fair, but terrible Tyrro'maironis and was considered by most to be the most powerful member of his race. He strongly believed in the supremacy of the Oikoumene over the lesser life that it protects. Despite this, he took his obligations to protect them very seriously. During this time, Tyrro'maironis met and fell in love with Libraé, a beautiful fellow Oikoumene, whose intelligence rivalled his own.
“Our lives are devoted to the greater good husband. But my life is still meaningless without your love. Promise me you will keep in contact."
"I promise you.”
- - Libraé and Tyrro'maironis on their devotion to both the "greater good" and each other.
Soon, the couple married and travelled the universe, all the while doing deeds for the greater good. However, in the beginning of the Apotheosis Era, countless smaller civilisations began to rise up against the Oikoumene. As supreme leader of the military, Tyrro'maironis was forced to spend long periods away from his wife while concentrating on the war effort. However, during the construction of Amemoriam, he once again met his wife during a meeting of the Oikoumene Council where the two argued over the uprising of the primitives. Eventually, Tyrro'maironis won the support of the Council and the current Primercer by suggesting that those primitives that stand against the Oikoumene in a violent capacity should be immediately occupied. Though Libraé was annoyed that her own husband overruled her, she didn't hold it against him.
After the Council meeting, Tyrómaironás returned to the battlefield, while Libraé embarked on an adventure to discover the meaning of a higher power's plan for them. As the months after the meeting dragged on, Tyrro'maironis led his people against the rebellious races of the universe, becoming known as the "Protector of the Oikoumene". However, his new found power drew the attention of the Primercer, the leader of the Oikoumene Council, who grew jealous of Tyrro'maironis' power. When he became aware of this treasonous activity, Tyrro'maironis pledged that he would end the Primercer's rule, ultimately confronting him in a fierce battle in the Oikoumene Capital. However, before the battle began, Tyrómaironás used his considerable influence to convince the Oikoumene Council to dethrone the Primercer, ultimately electing Libraé as the Primercer's successor. After the battle, Tyrro'maironis oversaw the exile of the Primercer. As the Apotheosis Era drew to a close, the Oikoumene mysteriously vanished, however, Tyrómairon and his warriors did not.
Contemplating some dark master plan, he sealed his warriors away until a time when they were needed, before finally going into hibernation on an unknown world in the Unknown Regions of Cyrannus, where he would remain for countless years. Despite this, many remnants of his Mornûnendur remained, in the form of Artificial Intelligences and technologies that strived to bring about a return of what they saw as their god. The most notable case occurred millions of years after Tyrómairon "disappeared", when an unknown essence loyal to Tyrómairon took control over the leader of the Trucinex, igniting the Trucinex War. This essence was stopped when Willelmus Cretacea of the Capricorn Sector Alliance killed the Nex Prophet at the end of the conflict.
“And so it begins.”
- - Tyrómairon
Millions of years after he began his long hibernation, Tyrómairon awoke during the Intergalactic War in a much more different world. It is unknown why Tyrómairon choose to awake at this time in history, but some believe he was brought out of hibernation by the meddling of crashed Republic troopers. Nevertheless, he quickly began to gather any and all information about the current timeline, eventually forming the intricate stages of his Grand Plan around the current political atmosphere. Wasting no time, he began to reassert his dominance, with many powerful acolytes quickly joining him, believing that he was a god. Tyrómairon also began to reawaken some of his chief Mornûnenduran lieutenants during this time.
In the aftermath of the Revolution of the Warlords that haunted the Delpha Coalition of Planets, the fallen warlord Tricarrion heard about Tyrómairon through many whispers heard through descension energies, and came looking for aid on how to defeat Bo Ramik. As the Xhodocto were seemingly destroyed in the March of the Apocalypse, he came looking for another possible ally, and found Tyrómairon. Though Tyrómairon agreed to help, Tricarrion was defeated. Tyrómairon's quest for knowledge led him to the newborn Kezoreg Breek, the son of Diplomat Lezia and Tyraz and spawn of the demon king, Angazhar. Tyrómairon saw that Kezoreg had great power and went to meet him in person. Impressed, Tyrómairon decided to wait until the boy was older before manipulating him into joining him.
Consolidation of Power Edit
“This war will ensure our ascendancy and will mark the beginning of a new era. From chaos, order will arise under my careful tending.”
- - Tyrómairon
In the following years, Tyrómairon began to amass more and more power and followers, even managing to will a new powerful servant into existence, Agonânghâsh. Far more notable however, were the first steps he took to achieve his Grand Plan. In utter secret, Tyrómairon began to plot a war that would destabilise Cyrannus' political environment, thus paving the way for a new era under his command. Tyrómairon organised two terrorist attacks on Orbispira, capital of the United Republic of Cyrannus and Carindes, capital of the newly formed secessionist faction the Confederacy of Allied Systems respectively.
Contacting famed bounty hunter Éaltar Gauisa by use of a disguise, Tyrómairon hired him to conduct the attacks. The plot was ultimately a resounding respect, with the already volatile relations between the Confederacy and the Republic erupting into the Great Cyrannus War, with both sides blaming the other for the initial attack. As the months of the war dragged on and got even more bloody, Tyrómairon watched intently, watching both sides with great interest. By the time the first year of the war was drawing to a close, Tyrómairon began to gain an interest in a certain Mortalitas general.
In secret, Tyrómairon began to gain control over the secretive "Majestic" agency of the United Republic of Cyrannus and gained control over the construction of the "Terminus" project, a massive moon-sized battlestation with enough power to destroy an entire planet. During the Second War of Black Fog, Terminus under the command of President Apollo destroyed the demonic entity known as Okastana, resulting in a counterattack by Arrtkar Crowart. The demon managed to cause damage to Terminus and defeated Meketanor in battle, only to be banished from the galaxy by Tyrómairon, who restored the damage caused to the station and healed those injured.
During the battle of Capricaerón, the Confederacy under the command of the villainous Zillum managed to gain orbital supremacy over the Republic Fleet, at least until Willelmus Cretacea arrived over the planet, along with a great fleet of Star Destroyers. In a direct broadside battle between the two commanders, Zillum's flagship the Benevolent lost structural integrity and violently crashed into the ocean. All hands, including Zillum were killed. However, Tyrómairon, who was impressed with the Mortalitas' prowess in battle decided to intervene. Using his ultimate powers over the art of manipulation, Tyrómairon stole the mighty general's corpse and brought it to a secret location, where he breathed life back into Zillum and translocated him back to Confederate space, blanking his memory in the process, until a time when he would be needed.
As the second year of the war went on, Tyrómairon continued to secretly work his way into galactic society, making many allies on both sides of the war, who were of course unaware of the Dark Lord's true identity. He contacted Éaltar Gauisa on several more occasions, including for a mission to break into the omniscient Library of Apailiana in the hopes of gaining more information. When the third year of the war began, Tyrómairon's long time second in command, Apeligatesa killed the Chancellor of the Confederacy, Dasá and stole his identity, essentially steering the Confederacy into both civil war, and outright destruction.Tyrómairon began to make his presence known among Cyrannus' political circles during the third year of the war, becoming a relatively famous, respected, yet enigmatic figure. Yet his goals from the very beginning remained the same. As Zillum continued his reign of terror, Tyrómairon contacted him and offered him many new abilities by increasing his brain power, thus unlocking many new dangerous powers buried deep in Zillum's brain. Without knowing it, Zillum had become a pawn in Tyrómairon's greater plan.
“General, deploy your fleet. The final act of the war has begun.”
- - Tyrómairon
By the time of the Battle of Orbispira, the final battle of the war, both the Confederacy and the Republic were on the very cusp of destruction, playing perfectly into Tyrómairon's plan to unite Cyrannus. With both fleets smashed over the galactic capital, Tyrómairon finally revealed himself as the leader of an impressive fleet made up of thousands of species that finally helped the Republic forces rout the Confederacy.
Beginning of Reign Edit
“Cyrannus will never again be at the mercy of belligerent primitives. I shall see to it personally.”
- - Tyrómairon
Arriving at Orbispira, Tyrómairon managed to manipulate his way into the Senate Chamber of Corunnia, where he delivered a rousing speech, condemning Apollo and the old ways of the United Republic of Cyrannus. As senators shouted in support, in a single stroke, he created the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus, becoming an Emperor over the new hyperpower.
In the early months of his rule, the new found Emperor began to instate his new Imperial order. Loyalty to the ideals of democracy and the old ways of the United Republic of Cyrannus and the Confederacy of Allied Systems were quickly dropped in favour of the promises of the Declaration of the New Empire. Soon afterward, Tyrómairon arrived on Capricaerón, unbeknownst to the general public. The Mornûnendur, Ekrillium located an ancient wormhole device that would grant the Empire a secret backdoor into the Quadrant Galaxies on Capricaerón. Showing his master Tyrómairon the portal, the Dark Lord gave the order to Zillum to enter the portal, and to bring the Quadrants to their knees.
Tyrómairon then returned to Orbispira, where he summoned the fierce Tiranozark, Tyrant to him. Discussing the condition of the galaxy with the Grand Admiral, Tyrómairon gave him a task to hunt down Taros Cassynder, a newly revealed Adlapuspino rebel, who wishes to return the ideals of the Confederacy of Allied Systems. In the aftermath of the massive Battle of the Rambo Capital, Zillum, Nirndal and Garlboz managed to capture Empress Ramashe. Knowing that the Empire had won this round, Ramashe surrendered and was brought before Tyrómairon, who had travelled to the Quadrants. Ramashe was surprised by the awe inspiring Emperor, who managed to destroy the Empress' uncooperativeness by threatening to kill her people.
“I am glad you have decided to surrender. Failure to do so would have tragic consequences.”
- - Tyrómairon, to Ramashe
Ramashe eventually agreed to the Emperor's demand, turning the glorious Rambo Nation into a protectorate of the Empire. Ramashe herself signed the so-called Nim-Glaré Concordat, turning her into a puppet ruler under direct Imperial control from Garlboz. Tyrómairon remained on the Rambo Capital in the aftermath of the signing, preparing to announce the victory to his new subjects. After appearing before the Rambo public and indeed, the entire Cyrandia Cluster, he officially began Rambo Nation's status as a protectorate. After this, he returned to Orbispira.
In the time after he returned to Orbispira, Tyrómairon learned of a rebellion against his rule coordinated by Agnassana, who planned on killing the Mandator of Nex, Nenabie in order to gain more power. The Dark Lord sent his acolyte, Meketanor to kill Agnassana's assassin and Grand Admiral Carandial with an Imperial Fleet to lay siege to Agnassana's capital of Miragna in order to depose the troublesome Mandator. Meanwhile, Tyrómairon surveyed his plans from the past year, confident in the Empire's future in Cyrannus.
Wars and Rumour of Wars Edit
“As my rule continues, so too will Cyrannus' prosperity.”
- - Tyrómairon
Tyrómairon continued to rule with an iron claw during the second year of the Dark Times, despite outwardly appearing as a benevolent emperor. In the end however, he truly believed that what he was doing was right, and in truth, had the support of the overwhelming majority of Imperial subjects. Nevertheless, during the first few months, he ordered many rebel and disobedient planets destroyed in order to crush potential threats. However, he also met with the leaders of the Andromedan Galactic Commonwealth to Orbispira, the first state visit since the Empire's formation. He also grew weary of the Mornûnendur's hostilities toward the Atlantica. Appearing before the Atlantica, Tyrómairon managed to convince them in dropping the war against them, thus ending the Clash of the Gods.
When he returned to the mortal realm, he began watching the Hunt for the Zevian Skull from afar, as the discovery of such a powerful artefact would surely interfere with his rule in the Quadrantia Province. Soon after returning to Orbispira, Tyrómairon summoned Tyraz and his son, Kezoreg, who were visiting the planet. Assuming the persona of a benevolent leader, Tyrómairon managed to place an imprint on the young Kezoreg, where he planned on using him for his own purposes.
During this time, many dissidents began to prepare for a war against the Empire, all under Tyrómairon's watchful gaze. Curiously, Tyrómairon began to gain a strong sense of respect toward the former President of the Republic, Apollo and recalled the Imperial fleet chasing him and his "Republic Remnant", concentrating on the Confederacy of Free Planets and their new Outer Rim War. Despite this, the Empire eventually captured Apollo and brought him to Orbispira, where Tyrómairon agreed to let him go free, having something special planned for him.
An Ancient Adversary Returns Edit
“There is no mercy.”
- - Tyrómairon
As the third year of the Empire began, Tyrómairon heard that his acolyte Moranonúngur failed in his task to infiltrate the Cognatus Empire. When Moranonúngur arrived at Tyrómairon's throne room on Orbispira, the Emperor punished his follower with torrents of blindingly hot lightning before finally relenting when Moranonúngur told him that he failed because an Oikoumene AI known as the Licent ousted him. Tyrómairon was incredibly surprised by this revelation and indicated that it was a sign that an ancient enemy was about to emerge. When Moranonúngur left, Tyrómairon began contemplating his next move.
During this time, Tyrómairon learned of a plot concocted by Imperator Tyranus, Mar-Júun and various other Imperial Basileus to overthrow him and bring about Basileus rule over Cyrannus. Tyrómairon watched and waited for the perfect moment to spring his trap. When the conspirators met for the last time, Tyrómairon himself arrived at the meeting. He quickly destroyed the Mandators Rachalia and Santanan and dispatched Mar-Júun by flinging him out a window. Cornering Tyranus, Tyrómairon lifted him into the air and crushed his throat. With this rebellion crushed before it began, Tyrómairon returned to his lair, where he continued to contemplate the possible return of a far more dangerous threat from the past.
Later, Tyrómairon was contacted by Apollo who wanted to ask the Emperor's permission to establish a conference in the hopes of reconciling the hopes and dreams of those who want a return to the Republic and those who wish to continue living under the Emperor. Tyrómairon agreed to let the conference go ahead and was impressed with Apollo's courage and charisma. However, the Dark Lord had more important things on his mind. Snarling, he translocated himself to his lair in Orbispira's core, where he spoke to Ekrillium about the threat from the past and its imminent awakening. As he anticipated, the Primercer eventually rose again thanks to the machinations of the Cognatus Empire, leaving Tyrómairon and his Mornûnenduran kin to plot to fight against their ancient adversary. Determined not to allow the State or the Primercer disrupt the Grand Plan, Tyrómairon began to amend many details of the Plan until he once again became confident that events would play out as he anticipates.
The Vector of Chaos Edit
- State Visit
“And we arrive at your problem, Ekrillium! When I desire you to think, I shall ask you to think!”
- - The Emperor voices his annoyance at Ekrillium's opinions.
As the New Cyrandia Wars raged throughout the Outer Rim, the Emperor continued to lead the Empire to many great victories, wiping out lingering institutions of the Old Republic and replacing them with Imperial organisations loyal to his will alone. Perhaps the most notable example was the creation of the Imperial Inquisition in 04 NE, which gave the Emperor a loyal cadre of agents devoted to his will alone. Several months into the war with the Imperial State, the Emperor decided to visit Rambo Nation in order to show the benefits of the introduction of the Nim-Glaré Concordat.
In a lavish ceremony, the Emperor met with Apollo and Ramashe, before granting the Empress the title of Grand Mandator of the Quadrant Galaxies as well as appointing the deadly Inquisitor Chi Chodecra to the position of Hand of the Monarch. After returning from the highly successful visit, Tyrómairon was informed by Ekrillium that the individual responsible for giving Senator Guolivian the information needed to cast down the Republic during the final year of the Great Cyrannus War was finally discovered.
- Fall of Lanat Prime and the Awakening of Thaurlathron
Some time later, the Emperor was approached by Captain Tector Decimius of the Chimaera, who informed the Emperor of his plans to invade the United Lanat Empire. Though somewhat sceptical that the plan could be realised successfully, Tyrómairon was impressed with the initiative shown and gave the captain his approval. Thus began the Fall of Lanat Prime, which ultimately ended with the Lanat Empire becoming a protectorate of the Empire. The Emperor himself dealt with Emperor Aoblix, snapping the neck of the former dictator as the old order crumbled. However, as the Emperor suspected, the protectorate was not universally accepted and indeed, he considered it inevitable that the central region of Mirus would fragment and so long as the Empire maintained the balance of power, that would be inconsequential.
Later, the Emperor was pleased to welcome the return of his loyal Oikoumene friend Thaurlathrón back into his circle. Informing his followers that the final confrontation with the Primercer was near, he assured them that they would be victorious and that a new era of peace and order would be assured.
- Final Battle with the Primercer
“You are not Oikoumene. You are an insect struggling to contemplate the void of space. For too long have you hounded the Grand Plan but that all ends now.”
- - Tyrómairon taunting the Primercer during their encounter.
As the power of the Primercer grew ever closer to threatening the designs of the Grand Plan, Tyrómairon finally deigned to address the threat directly as the closing shots of the New Cyrandia Wars were sounded. Informing his subordinates that he would face the Primercer alone, the Dark Lord travelled to Cognalorilos, where the Empire was engaged in a bloody battle alongside the Unified Order of Cognalorilos against the Cognatus Empire. While on the way to the Primercer's chamber, Tyrómairon was faced by Qulmé, the loyal Lieutenant of the Primercer. Though he attempted to reason with her, the Dark Lord quickly ended her corporeal existence when she defied his offer of surrender.
Making his way into the Primercer's sanctum, the two powerful Oikoumene spoke for several minutes before a colossal battle broke out between them. Evenly matched, it was only through Tyrómairon's intellect and cunning that the Primercer fell. However, while being tortured by the Dark Lord, the Primercer spoke of another whose time was coming. Fully aware of the identity of this threat, Tyrómairon finally all but destroyed his enemy, banishing him forever from existence. After the battle, Tyrómairon returned to his followers, where he told them of the Primercer's demise. However, he did not inform them of the coming threat to their plans.
- Declaration of Victory
“We have been tested but have emerged victorious! Never again will we be divided by petty divisions. Never again will world turn against world and family turn against family! The Empire will restore security, order and peace, an indivisible force unlike any seen before! For the Empire is whole once more, it will grow and strengthen as we march to retake the galaxy!”
- - The Emperor addressing the Empire's citizens at the close of the New Cyrandia Wars.
Several days later, the Emperor received word that the Siege of Vasuband and decided to make a rare public appearance on Orbispira to announce the Empire's victory over the Cyrannian Imperial State. Claiming that the Empire will now march to retake the galaxy from those who challenge Imperial resolve, the Emperor rallied the citizens of the Empire into a patriotic fervour as parties and vast military parades occurred throughout the Empire. When his speech ended, Tyrómairon returned to his lair beneath the city world's surface where he informed his followers of the coming threat - one that would constitute a far greater challenge than the Primercer and the Imperial State did.
The Resurgent Light Edit
- The Final Act begins
“The Dark Lord and his forces will never be content to let us live in peace. He aspires to rule over all. He must be stopped and we must triumph. We must reveal ourselves to the universe, to stand against the darkness as the guardians of the New Republic. As of this day, we declare the Aldárae Order reborn!”
- - Master Ryen
In the aftermath of the New Cyrandia Wars, Tyrómairon orchestrated the outbreak of the Cyrannian Cold War with the New Cyrannian Republic, though retired from the everyday governance of the Empire to deal with the threat posed by the resurgent power of the Light, which increased exponentially as the Primercer predicted. When the Osteolan Master Ryen recruited Aoirtae Valaeris and Kara Inviá, he was particularly troubled when his vision of the mysterious world known as Aldár was clouded from him.
Nevertheless, he prepared for the inevitable day as best he could, though found himself shaken when he finally felt the return of the Lord of Light—Apolithanatár, the only being he knew could challenge him. Simultaneously, Tyrómairon began his final transformation of his Empire, dissolving the Imperial Senate and stamping down on dissent within Imperial space. With Thaurlathrón, Imperials such as Grand Admiral Tector Decimius and Phaedric Lords such as Venatorius and Meketanor, he accelerated his final plan—which would begin with the "Operation".
Tyrómairon is a being of great power and as such, can freely change his appearance to suit his own needs. For example, he appeared as many different influential figures in the opening stages of the Great Cyrannus War in order to manipulate Éaltar Gauisa into doing his bidding. In his most commonly used form, Tyrómairon uses the same general appearance of a typical Oikoumene, though with many other features that clearly distinguish him from other members of his species, including a more massive size, a darker colouration as well as an aura of darkness.
Personality and Traits Edit
“Everything is transpiring according to plan.”
- - Tyrómairon
Tyrómairon is a force of power, unlike any seen in the Cyrandia Cluster. However, he is not often considered to be a force of chaos and destruction, instead he uses charm, manipulation and an incomprehensible degree of intelligence to achieve his goals. Though theories about his origins are the source of gossip across the Gigaquadrant, Tyrómairon is a hyper-powerful Oikoumene, a member of the Ultraterrestrials. To his supporters, he is seen as being a new hope for a chaotic universe, while to his opponents, he is viewed as the embodiment of evil.
Often known as the Dark Lord, this foreboding title is loosely translated from the Oikoumene word "herus", his official name to his followers among the Mornûnendur, the ancient warriors of the Revelation. Tyrómairon commands the use of a highly mysterious energy force, unknown to even his kin in the Oikoumene and indeed, the other factions of Ultraterrestrials. The origins of this power are ultimately unknown, though theories include a technological advantage Tyrómairon invented himself, or that it has origins in a higher power.
As part of his Grand Plan, Tyrómairon united the Cyrannus Galaxy, and indeed a great deal of the Cyrandia Cluster under his dark grasp, outwardly appearing as a benevolent and incredibly intelligent Galactic Emperor of the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus, each day gaining more and more power. Indeed, this serves as a testament to Tyrómairon's cunning, even more interesting considering that the creation of the Empire was merely the first act of a wider play. In regard to lesser beings, Tyrómairon, like many Oikoumene, sees them as being inferior. However, he also sees their purpose and power, as seen in their many victories against vastly more powerful foes. His true intent toward his Imperial subjects is unknown. Though many of those who have come into contact with him as Emperor feel uneasy when around him, only Zillum and Tyrómairon's acolytes know of the Emperor's true form as the Dark Lord of the Mornûnendur and indeed, as an Oikoumene.
While outwardly being considered a devious figure, Tyrómairon has experienced love. His wife, Libraé, a peaceful woman with a great love for all life was considered by many to be the polar opposite of Tyrómairon, and yet they valued their mutual love as much as they valued life itself. After Tyrómairon awoke from his hibernation, it is unknown if their love has any role in his current motives, or if he has forsaken it.
- Unknown - It is unlikely that Tyrómairon views anyone in the present-day as an ally. With the exception of some of his fellow true Mornûnendur.
- Libraé - My equal. (Unknown current status)
- Ekrillium - My advisor.
- Apeligateza - My lieutenant.

- Tyrómairon was originally known as Antediluvian ever since his inception in 2011. However, Cyrannian has long been dissatisfied with this name, a word synonymous with "out-dated", and decided to give him a more original identity in 2014. "Tyrómairon" was chosen from a list of possible names by the community, resulting in Antediluvian's renaming on the 26th of December 2014.
- Tyrómairon's alternate names "Tāi-romai'ronís" and "Tyrro'maironis" were chosen by Xho and TheImperios respectively.
- Despite only becoming a major character on the wiki on June 21st 2011, his earliest origins and concept date all the way back to June 10th, 2010 during a battle in the Intergalactic War.
- The Emperor's Theme from Star Wars serves as his theme.
