After the Battle of Zeruel, the Crimus was in a state of disarray and chaos. Zeruel's destruction and the Conduit closing put the Principality in jeopardy, giving the order for the Emperium to regroup to the remaining territory. The remaining Rau Fleets headed to other planets after a chase from Argos and the SSOID fleet. 17 ships were lost in the process.
2383 marked a downfall with people evacuating. Those who survived from Zeruel traveled in Colony Ships til they arrived in Crimus planets. Those who decided to stay in space were dubbed Generational Ships. Closing of Synergy led to a massive power lost, scarce and only in conversed packs or batteries. The influx of the Renegade Quadrant led to an assault on Crimus worlds by pirates and mercenaries seeking revenge or spoils. Panga was the first planet to fall from the assaults.
Conflict Arising Edit
Come 2459, things for the Crimus have stabilized, but tens of thousands of archives and technologies lost from the incident were never recovered. Mariahlus has overseen the Emperium change and fit to rely on defense.
On 2470, Yscom has noticed the reemergence of the Crimus once more. At first, relations between the two were strained at best but kept distance. But as the atmosphere of the Galaxy shifted to instability, both attempted to one arm each other through their borders. Peace talks were attempted but never succeeded in the initial stage.
Within the Council are individuals who ask the Crimus to all downsize their military presence within the Renegade and allow Yscom fleets to clean up the Quadrant from criminals. The Crimus, with the past incident and emphasis on traditions, refused to allow Yscom to head in their territory.
Conflict of interest rose and word of mouth spread fast. Behind the scenes Mariahlus sought to keep the situation to a minimum as it will eventually reach to a boiling point. A Yscom diplomat was sent to a meeting between both states by a small fleet. Then, in a disaster was the entire fleet engulfed by a massive purple sphere, obliterating the ship. Immediately Yscom citizens cried out for blood and an investigation led to the suspicion of the Crimus harboring weapons of mass destruction. A week later the Yscom declared war against the Crimus.
