Death Korps as the ultimate tragic satire of Fascism
But why? Well, that's more or less what I want to answer in this essay/ finkpiece.
Well, let's start off with a brief history. I'll copy-paste the Lexicanum page's summary of Krieg's history here. Lexicanum Page
Krieg was previously a prosperous Hive World of billions located in Segmentum Tempestus, specialising in manufacture and trade and led by a council of Autocrats. However, as time passed, the debauched and decadent Autocrats began to become paranoid that an outside threat would take their power away from them, and thus began to increasingly fortify the world from outside threats. Eventually, the Autocrats also began to resent the influence of the Administratum on a planet that they considered to be their own.
Finally, in 433.M40, the High Autocrat declared himself independent from the Imperium and renounced the Emperor as his divine master. Civil war broke out on Krieg and much of the planet quickly fell to the rebels except for Hive Ferrograd, which was under the command of the now-infamous Colonel Jurten of the Krieg 83rd Imperial Guard regiment. Under strict orders to not let Krieg fall, but in the knowledge that no fleet on the scale needed to relieve them was available, Jurten decided that Krieg would either belong to the Emperor or to no one. On the day of the Feast of the Emperor's Ascension, Jurten unleashed a counter-attack of atomic cleansing in what became known as "the Purging." For days Krieg was engulfed in a sea of nuclear fire, resulting in a total collapse of its ecosystem and subsequent nuclear winter, but the civil war dragged on. The survivors from the Purging would fight on but were forced to exist in underground bunkers or deep in the radioactive chem-wastes, as their descendants do to this day. From the self-annihilation of their homeworld, loyalist troops slowly retook their world inch by inch over the course of 500 years until finally returning to Imperial rule in 949.M40. It would be from this cataclysmic event that the Death Korps of Krieg were born.
Made it through that slog? Good.
That's the history behind Krieg; fanatical, suicidal zeal for the Imperium in the face of overwhelming odds. That lead to the Death Korp's feeling of shame and seeking to assuage that shame in throwing themselves into the toughest battlefields in the Imperium, as many dying as it takes to win, to regain some semblance of personal honor.
Fascists IRL can obviously identify with this; fascist theory quite literally almost requires being outnumbered by hordes of savages, and/or infiltrated by agents of chaos and change. As a result, they can see themselves in the death masks, the facelessness, the wish to martyr themselves for a cause to beat back the mutant, the xenos, and the heretic. And additionally, of course, the Death Korps take many design elements from WW1 soldiers, a decent chunk of which is specifically German-inspired, though there are French elements.
As a result, fascists are drawn to the simple aesthetics of the army willing to do anything it takes to win, in the name of, effectively, an ethnostate. (If I need to explain why the Imperium is an ethnostate to you, go read any lore, because they genocide aliens and other humans constantly). That is a lot of the militant groups' goals, to kill and die to sow terror among the people they want to be afraid, and to try to take over again, like they did with the ascension of the Third Reich.
And also, a minor meta-history note: the Death Korps originated as a conversion of Steel Legion troopers, who are basically just Blitzkrieg in Space, and honestly have even more fascist elements than the Death Korps. I might do another fink-piece on them. However, as others have pointed out, they have a mix of model aesthetic influences in their French blue greatcoats for the official main Regiment painted for promo models, but even official art shows them in a bevy of colors from the French blue to Feldgrau to black. Fanart, which I would also argue is part of the meta-history of Kriegers as part of the 40k IP, almost always put them in Feldgrau-equivalent grey uniforms.
This doesn't mean that the Death Korps aren't overpoweringly fascist-coded in their cultural aesthetics. The eternal shame martyr is overpoweringly fascist.
However, as a Death Korps fan, I also wanted to clear up the memey misconceptions about the Death Korps.
- Shovels were both a tool and a weapon in the 1st World War, and Kriegers do practice siege warfare tactics. However, that does not mean that they exclusively use shovels. Their Lucius No. 98 Lasguns (now isn't that on the nose, knowing what you know now?) are explicitly designed to fire slower but more powerful shots, to help them kill enemies with massed ranks, and assist with maintaining supplies during siege warfare.
- Kriegers are a fanatical death cult, but they are not so suicidal that they willingly throw themselves at the enemy and drown them in bodies, like the memes. Instead, they take calculated risks. If the loss of life can be justified, they will sacrifice as many troops as needed to take an objective.
2b. On a tactical, in-the-moment scale? If a Krieger squad can keep a group of enemy elite forces (for example, Chaos Marines) pinned in one place, they can and will call artillery on themselves, because the Chaos Marines so far outmatch the Kriegers for sheer killing power that it's worth the loss of that squad. Even then, they're recommended to get to cover if they can. But a duel between one renegade guardsman and a Krieger? that's not only an even match, it's a waste of ammunition.
- Krieg Commissars are an interesting departure from the rest of the setting's Commissars. Their primary job is to be a diplomat between other regiments and the Krieg regiment, because the Kriegers can be notoriously difficult to work with, with the whole fanatical death cult angle.
3b. And no, Commissars are not executed for cowardice by Kriegers. That conception is a twisting of a scene in Dead Men Walking, the iconic "Kriegers are just as soulless as Necrons" book, which has some contention among fans like myself who prefer to have a little bit of character. The scene in question is the Krieg commander executing the Planetary Governor for dereliction of duty, when he doesn't terminate contact with the Necrons inside the besiege Hive, who say they have his daughter.
Part Two of the Timeline I Posted Earlier!
2350 - Commissary-General R'Tanik is exposed to be under the influence of a secretive cult, the Fractured Sun, forcing her to resign. The Great War ends in Victory after 13 years. The 100 year anniversary of the Federation is celebrated across all federal worlds. Slava becomes a mining world, with an economic hierarchy resembling that of the early industrial revolution. Terran fleets from the Othqlak front are redirected to fight against the Praknar. War Plan Maya is enacted, instructing fleets on the existing front to lay low and wait for reinforcements.
2351 - The Federation declares war on the Syndicate to expel its cartels from federation worlds once more. The 2nd Mirovvian War begins. The Syndicate surrenders immediately, intimidated by the military might of the Federation. The newly-renamed 3-Week War ends. The Uqo’Praknar, in an attempt to gain more of an edge on the Union, manufacture various virus-like programs to invade Terran computer systems.
2352 - Human Machines rise up across the Northern Systems and cut off communication between compromised planets, starting the Machine War. The systems acquired during the Great War are spared, but Sol is the only Northern system to remain in the Union's hands, and is immediately put to siege.
2353 - The Union agrees to capitulate to the Uqo’Praknar, allowing them to possess all files related to the Terran research project, titled “Project Thorium”. The Praknar War ends.
2354 - The Battle of Ecumen is won with a single shot from the titan-class ship the USS Nakamura. The Federal Emergency Fleet enters Union space, having been en route for some months. This news brings an immense morale boost to all soldiers fighting the Machines. The Battle of Sirius is won with moderate losses after 3 weeks.
2356 - The liberation of the twin planets of Urania and Poseidia reveals that the machines had built thousands of concentration camps and were committing genocide upon all higher forms of organic life. Only 10 million of Urania's original population of 30 million are able to be saved. The most infamous of the liberated camps was "Organic Containment Site 9I-T0"
2358 - The Vestige declares war on the Federation, seeing them as weak for fighting such a desperate war against machines, beginning the 3rd Fallen War.
2359 - Commissary-General Velituc Zan, a Kekako, commits suicide, believing that he had failed his nation. Hanz Freytag is elected in his place.
2360 - The Machine War ends after the final robotic fleet is destroyed, and the total deaths due to the genocidal programs of the machines is determined to be circa 550,000,000, the most devastating loss of life in human history. All sentient robotics are outlawed within the UTR, with the exception of the AI constructs aboard Terran warships.
2365 - The 3rd Fallen War ends in status quo. A monument to the lives lost in the Machine War is created, featuring a group of 7 faceless statues varying in gender, representing the various species of the Federation, each holding up a pillar with one hand and downward-facing swords in the other. The pillars support a small pool of water filled with 550 pebbles. Each pebble represents one million of the Terran casualties taken. Surrounding the statues, an immense field of poppies grows, symbolizing the war as a whole. The phrase “Only the dead have seen the end of war” is inscribed in the chests of the statues, in both human languages and the languages of all species whose people faced extermination.
2367 - the 3rd Fallen War ends in status quo due to a sudden uprising in Javix space.
2370 - War Plan Precursor is put in place in the event of a fourth Fallen War, detailing an intricate strategy of blitzkrieg, with Terran forces moving as quickly as possible to take the Javix capital of “the Core.”
2375 - The Federation declares a preemptive war on the Vestige, beginning the 4th Fallen War. Following Precursor, Terran forces quickly reach the Core and begin besieging its moon, Boundary. The First Battle of Boundary begins.
2377 - High General of the Terran Army, Claws of Cyan, falls in combat during the First Battle of Boundary. Torba'Tagga, an Oth’qlak, is promoted to High General, and retreats the Terran army due to massive losses. The First Battle of Boundary ends.
2381 - Emboldened by the arrival of Cezen and Shanzorak reinforcements, the Terran Army invades once more, this time utilizing a tactic formulated by the AI known as Teddy, in which ground forces would make themselves appear weaker than they were in order to invite attack, before deploying their full strength. The Second Battle of Boundary begins. The last stand of the Vestige Army takes place in the Capital city of Boundary, Tal'Kik. The 2nd Battle of Boundary is won, and the Battle of the Core begins.
2382 - The Treaty of Tal'Kik ends the 4th Fallen War following victory at the Battle of the Core. Humanity takes the Core and Boundary, and the Javix Vestige is dissolved as a political power, ending its 200,000 year existence.
2383 - The Federation declares war on the Silencers, viewing their continued existence as a threat to galactic civilization, and supposedly possessing evidence of their research into planet killing weapons. This begins the Silencer War. Construction of a Terran fleet of a size never before seen begins.
2385 - The Union’s Strategic Coordination Center and Colossus planet-killing weapon are completed, and the Granddaughter of Alex Vicks, Alice Vicks, previously Commissary Officer, is appointed as Secondary General, heir to the position of High Commandant.
2386 - The Celestial Solidarity of Spacefarers forms between the Jayss Hegemony, Abdator Stellar League, and Nharr Republic to rival the Federation. The Silencers suffer several devastating defeats at the hands of the UTR.
2388 - The planet of Da'Ramon is cleared of all life by the Terran Colossus, the USS Solemn Hand. The debris is scattered throughout the system, leaving no evidence that the planet had existed, save for prominent gravitational irregularities. This event is highly classified, with the general public being completely unaware of the occurrence.
2389 - First Human subspecies recorded fleeing from the Silencers, named Homo Sapiens Captiosus. Captiosus humans are adept in all things intellectually stimulating. The strategies they formulate are extremely successful, rivaling those of the wartime AI constructs, and research projects they are involved with conclude far quicker, however they also seem to be far less emotionally stimulated, with standard humans observing that conversations with them about non-academic subjects tend to be rather mundane.
2390 - A Venusian super soldier battalion is wiped out to a man during the Battle of Can'iza, the first example of such an event. The subspecies Homo sapiens Illustratum is created, with Illustratum humans being naturally talented artists and creative minds, able to more efficiently design Terran vehicles and other such things. Slava, a major source of raw materials for the UTR, is restored to mining world status following its terraformation during the Machine War. Plume of Aquamarine, a Shanzorak, is elected to his fifth term as Commissary-General.
2398 - The Silencer War ends after 15 years, and the Othqlak Silencers are dissolved as a political entity. Following months of peace and the redirection of research funds, a new method of colonization is discovered, known as Premeditated Industry. Rather than having colonists land and construct settlements from the resources on the planet, a process which could take years, their colonization ships would deconstruct themselves into the materials needed to rapidly industrialize. This discovery, headed by the Kekako Alignment’s top scientists, would begin a new era of peace and discovery known as the “Pax Terra”.
2399 - Premeditated Industry is put to the test with the colonization of Aternum, a recently terraformed planet in the Procyon system. Within 11 months, a bustling metropolis is constructed, simply known as “New Rome”.
2400 - A fleet of science ships of the “Pioneer” class are constructed to explore a previously untouched part of the galaxy, known as the “Omega Sector.” The most publicized of these ships, the USS Lagrange II, is an homage to the original USS Lagrange.
2403 - Dozens of habitable planets are discovered by the Pioneer fleet, as well as a handful of primitive species. The most advanced of these are the Dorians of Dorion V.
2415 - An observation post is constructed above Dorion V, for the purpose of further monitoring the Dorians’ progress. At the same time, many new colonies begin to form, the most notable of which being Apollo and Artemis, twin forest planets in the Olympia system.
2420 - The monument to the lives lost during the Merciless Day is expanded upon, with the addition of a statue of the only surviving ship of the fleet, ironically named the USS Indomitable. The names of that ship’s crew are removed from the rings and engraved onto various plaques surrounding the statue.
2423 - The government of Zhanghai is officially endorsed by the greater Terran government, with the planet being cited as “as close to a utopia as we can hope to reach” by an anonymous member of the Senate.
2424 - The process of Premeditated Industry is further streamlined by the invention of robotic disassemblers. Previously, the ship had to be deconstructed by the hand of the colonists.
2425 - The Union’s Congress passes a new law that limits the authority of senators over non-congressional matters, a reform had been desperately needed for decades. This law is known as the Senatorial Limitation Act.
2433 - 8-time Commissary-General of the Union, Plume of Aquamarine, dies. His statue joins the other heroes of the Union in the capital city of Berlin.
2434 - A military parade is performed on Earth, in commemoration to the 100 year anniversary of the end of the 2nd Essic War.
2435 - The memorial to Admiral Freytag is commemorated 50 years after his death, with a plaque dedicated to his accomplishments at the feet of a statue of him on his homeworld, Urania. His successor, a human woman by the name of Yamagata Kyoko, a native of Ecumen, is appointed to the position of High Admiral.
2436 - The Ether Drake is killed by Terran Forces, avenging the crew of the USS Lagrange nearly 2 centuries later, and allowing xenobiologists to study its anatomy in great detail.
2437 - The Terran Science Nexus is complete in orbit of Saturn, and officially dubbed the Lagrange Galactic University, in honor of the science crew killed nearly two centuries before by the Ether Drake. The Ether Drake's remains are brought onboard the Galactic University for study. Construction begins on the ultimate habitat of humanity, a ringworld, in Project Elysiosa.
2440 - A major breakthrough in terraforming technology, generating an atmosphere by harvesting rare types of Minerals called "Uranian Motes" and shattering them upon the surface of the planet to be terraformed, releasing chemicals and compounds essential in the formation of life. This process would be refined into usage of "Terraformal Bombardment" by military ships.
2445 - The rank of Grand Admiral of the Union is created, with the power to consolidate all Terran forces into a single fleet. A similar rank is named, having unofficially existed for some time, for ground forces, High Commandant.
2446 - Yamagata Kyoko of the 2nd Task Force is appointed Grand Admiral of the Union following her victory at the Battle of Venesis, a seemingly hopeless battle against the Resurgent Voidborn Crusaders who had amassed a fleet of hundreds of ships.
2448 - General Kul-Ruz is appointed to High Commandant after his valiant leadership and tactical genius are put on full display putting down a rebellion within the Kekako alignment. Admiral Kyoko consolidates all Terran fleets in the Sol system.
2450 - The Federal Cohesion Act is passed in the Senate, giving the president of the federation a handful of executive powers, and increasing the centralization of the Federation.
2452 - The Democratic Cezen Republic secedes from the Federation following repeated attempts to declare war on a Terran Puppet, and a perception of “Terran hostility” toward their government and customs, which admittedly did exist.
2455 - Phase 2 of Project Elysiosa is complete, finishing the frame of the Ring World. Humanity begins researching the potential of weaponizing celestial bodies, including designing enormous prototype HE-11 engines to mobilise them.
2456 - All diplomatic relations with the Cezen Republic collapse after a tense military confrontation at a border system, and war is seemingly imminent.
2460 - Experiments begin with Psionic Energy-based weaponry. Celestial candidates for weaponization are identified. Phase 3 of Project Elysiosa begins, with habitable ring sections beginning construction.
2461 - The Classified Service Agency, a mysterious branch of the military, makes its first public appearance, seen wielding primarily sword-like weapons.
2462 - A mysterious “Subspace Hiccup'' is detected across the entire galaxy, seemingly originating from outside the galaxy. The anomaly seems to cause issues for all artificial intelligences, and a unit of robotic servants suffers a malfunction on Yaldira, causing the deaths of nearly a thousand Terran citizens, and sparking fear of a 2nd Machine War.
2462 - Several synthetics units disappear on the world of Yaldira, seeming to have departed the planet entirely. The CRB is placed on high-security lockdown.
2463 - Following a violent and bloody military coup, led by a Cezen known as Heshtha’Tok, the Cezen Republic is dissolved in favor of a new Cezen Empire, with Tok taking the throne. This empire is free of the caste system of the former hierarchy, but instead focuses on fueling their faith by forcing other nations in the galaxy under their control.
2464 - The Federation declares war on the Cezen Empire after a close vote held behind closed doors, hoping to curtail the new threat to the galaxy. This brings an end to the Pax Terra, and begins the Cezen Imperial War.
January 9, 2465 - The Rurius Campaign, the longest of the war, begins.
June 10, 2465 - The Rurius campaign ends in victory after the Battle of Vindacta, and the death of a prominent Cezen General.
2467 - Terran warships advance to Ce Minoris, a system that serves as an excellent staging ground for an invasion.
2468 - A surprise Cezen counterattack forces all Terran forces in the system and all neighboring systems to retreat to the recently-established Arcturus Line.
2469 - The Battle of Arcturus, a long naval battle fought across dozens of systems, is lost by Terran forces. This pushes them back even further, back into the Union proper, and leads to the occupation of The Shanzorak Sovereignty.
2470 - A Cezen army warps deep into Terran space using an illegal method of FTL travel. The army arrives at the almost undefended planet of Nova Constantinople, the location of the HQ of the Classified Service Agency, who had been greatly inhibiting the Cezen war effort, and whose existence was considered an insult to the Cezen religion. What followed was a massacre. Almost every Agent at the HQ was killed and the small army protecting the planet was forced to flee into treacherous mountains to a small town known as Asceiro. They were further assailed until they were extracted by the 1st Task Force, led by Admiral Kyoko directly, as well as dozens of civilian freighters. This would come to be known as the Agency Massacre or, less commonly, as Adkins’ Evacuation. The first part of Phase 3 of Project Elysiosa is complete, with a section of the ring world being made habitable.
2471 - The new front to the galactic north forces the Terran navy to thin out across a larger front. Out of desperation, Case Tumulsiora is enacted, ordering the complete fortification of the current Terran borders, while also taking several opportunistic strikes against assembled forces.
2472 - The Celestial Solidarity of Spacefarers, which by then included the Livis Confederacy, Abdator Stellar League, Nharr Republic, and Jayss Hegemony, joins the war on the side of the Cezen.
2473 - With the assistance of its new allies, the Cezen Empire advances all the way to Sol. The Battles of Earth and Mars begin.
2474 - All remaining Terran fleets reach Earth, and the naval combat in the system escalates to encompass the entire inner solar system. At the same time, ground reinforcements arrive on Earth and Mars, temporarily relieving the tired defenders.
2475 - Under the leadership of Kyoko and Commandant Kul-Ruz, the Cezen-Solidarity coalition’s forces are pushed out of Sol entirely, at the cost of over a thousand Terran ships and millions of Terran soldiers. Kul-Ruz is killed in the final days of the Battle of Mars, and Alice Vicks is allowed to take the rank of High Commandant.
2476 - The Federal Emergency Fleet, located far from Terran space, is recommissioned by the Kekako, Hisnollox, and Essics to liberate Terran and Shanzorak planets.
2477 - The subsequent “Procyon Campaign” is extremely successful, with hundreds of systems being retaken and the Shanzorak being liberated.
2478 - The Cezen Empire proposes an end to the war, on the terms that the Federal Cohesion Act be repealed, that the Terran systems taken during the Ideology War be relinquished back the Cezen hands, including the planet Cubis, and that the federation systems bordering the Empire be demilitarized. This peace deal, the Treaty of Ecumen, is accepted, ending the Cezen Imperial War.
2480 - Terran efforts to recover both their population and military strength begin, with many large terraformation projects beginning on countless uninhabitable worlds. This period of Terran history would be known as The Restoration.
2481 - In the Olympus system, the planets of Hera and Zeus are colonized, with Zeus being an ocean-covered world and Hera being a world of almost heavenly beauty and conditions for life. These two planets quickly become some of the most populated within the Union, and the governments of Apollo, Artemis, Zeus and Hera declare a ceremonial pact of brotherhood, with the Olympia system becoming a hotspot for the ancient Hellenic faith.
2482 - Alice Vicks is elected as Commissary-General, and personally orders the construction of a statue of Kul-Ruz, her mentor and close friend. A Xaplo named Formicur takes her place as High Commandant.
2485 - Dozens more planets are colonized, and the Terran Navy begins to recover its losses. Hundreds of thousands of Terran citizens begin to enlist in the military. Yamagata Kyoko retires with honors.
2490 - Alice Vicks is re-elected as Commissary-General. Earth’s industry and population almost completely recover from the devastating war.
2492 - The Essic Republic, long a simple client state to the Federation, is allowed to become an official member, greatly boosting morale across federal space. Their entry also came with a small economic boost for Earth and her colonies.
2495 - The planets of Cerise and New Volna are colonized with remarkable speed in the Imperiocide system. Priam and Port Amazonia are both restored to their former glory.
2497 - The current ruling dynasty within the Jabaran Hierarchy is replaced with the Zic dynasty in a bloody but short revolution. The Zic, who were more friendly to Terran interests than the previous rulers, the Ban, were aided by the Federation.
2498 - A law to replace the Federal Cohesion Act, the Central Economy Act, is passed, which allows the Federation Senate to determine what the member states’ economies would focus towards. With this, the Federation is renamed to the Federation of Undivided Systems.
2500 - The turn of the century is marked by the passing of the Frontier Relief Act, an effort meant to create policies to both end and prevent the struggles of those on frontier colonies, an issue present within the Union for centuries.
2502 - The Cezen Empire betrays its allies in the Solidarity, launching a surprise invasion into the Nharr Republic and Greater Livis Confederacy. Their intent was to bring the alliance into a relationship in which the Cezen would have control over their governance, but the subject nations would be allowed, and encouraged, to fight among themselves. The initial attacks mark the beginning of the Cezen Religious Wars.
2504 - Many Terran military corporations declare their unofficial support for the Celestial Solidarity of Spacefarers, sending supplies of weapons and ammunition.
2505 - The Cezen occupy the Homeworld of the Nharr, but their advance stalls from there.
2506 - The Declaration of Neutrality is passed by the Federation Senate, declaring that the Federation would not involve itself in any conflicts not directly impacting federal interests. Alice Vicks gives a speech to the populace, stating that the declaration was solely in the interest of protecting the Terran people. This declaration helped to quell beliefs that the act was passed out of spiteful unwillingness to assist aliens who had been the Union’s rivals for centuries.
2508 - The Cezen occupy the Livis Confederacy and Nharr Republic in their entirety, moving to continue their advance into the Jayss Hierarchy and Abdator League. Across frontier Terran worlds, a holiday begins to be celebrated known as Founder’s Day, celebrating the end of the Imperial War and the beginning of the third wave of Terran colonization.
2510 - The phrase “From the stars by dust we came, to the stars by triumph we go” is adapted as the official motto of the Union, the original motto having long been lost. The phrase had been discovered in Dalisian ruins centuries ago.
2511 - A monument to commemorate the Battle of Berlin during the Imperial War is constructed, being an Eternal Flame held up by two human soldiers, one male and one female. Behind the column, a massive wall is inscribed with the names every soldier who fell or went missing in the battle. Additionally, the Tomb of an Unknown Soldier is commemorated in front of the wall, complete with an honor guard.
2512 - 15 of the 100 surviving Agents disappear upon the world of Tif. An investigation reveals nothing, except that they had travelled to the planet to seek out an ancient Dalisian relic they believed had been hidden from humanity for millennia. Tif is declared off-limits to all personnel, except a military installation meant to watch for any more strange occurrences.
2513 - The Cezen force peace onto the Solidarity, taking the Nharr and the Livis into their religious sphere of influence. The Nharr Visitorate and Livis Visitorate are established, and are immediately swayed against one another.
2514 - A new CSA HQ is constructed on Earth, and efforts begin to recruit new members for the Agency.
2515 - The remains of the Celestial Solidarity of Spacefarers sign a pact of non-aggression with the Federation, in hopes of mending centuries of bad blood in the face of the new threat.
2520 - The Cezen Empire takes advantage of a second wave of civilizations emerging from their primitive ages in the galactic south, bringing these new races into their sphere. One race, the Brenoilae, refuses to join them, instead desiring the protection of the Federation. The Brenoilae Protectorate is established.
2521 - The various primitive Visitorates of the Cezen Empire are merged to become a single political entity, the V’Lian Visitorate, in an attempt to make the younger races stand a chance against their more advanced brothers. This is known in Cezen history as the First Union.
2522 - the animosity between the Visitorates created by the Cezen erupts into conflict, beginning the Visitorate Wars.
