The Isyan Allegiance is the most militaristic force and the largest single organization of planets in the galaxy. The Isyan Allegiance comprises a diverse list of star systems, all under the indirect rule of the Allegiance government. The Isyan Allegiance has been the long-time driving force of hostility among the neighboring galaxies.
The Isyan Allegiance came about when the labor force of the Surrellians rebelled against their masters. The Surrellians were a technologically advanced species with a concentration in cybernetics and genetics. They took animals native to their home planet and evolved them into a slave race, making most of them upright and with an opposable thumb.
In 1983, Earth Standard Calendar, a series of strong solar flares lashed out from their sun, radiating their home planet’s atmosphere. While the Surrellians retreated below the planet’s crust, safe from the radioactive exposure, many of their cyborg servants were left on the surface. The flares caused a change in their neural circuitry and gave them sentience. One of them, one of the first to become aware, called itself Enerjox and united those left on the surface in a movement against their creators. When the Surrellians finally returned to the surface, Enerjox ordered for their immediate enslavement and promised to bring about the demise of their allies. The planet was renamed from Surrellia to Licentia. Its inhabitants were now called the Isyans and all planets, nations, and organizations affiliated or belonging to them, were considered part of the Isyan Allegiance.
The primary race within the Isyan Allegiance is the Isyan. The Isyans are beings with both organic and biomechatronic body parts, with at least 65% of their body being inorganic. They often appear as the human equivalent of animals, standing upright. They are gender neutral, and not referred to in masculine or feminine terminology.
