The Empire of Ker was born in 2484, formed by its namesake Ker and other allied worlds and colonies. Tired of Federation rule, and still angry over the events of the first Division War, these planets rebelled against the Federation and formed their own nation with Ker as its leader.

The objective of the Empire of Ker is the annihilation of Hemera and its leadership, the destruction of the Upyri Federation's Peacekeeping Forces, and total domination over the Federation and its assets. Thus, converting the Federation into a 'glorious Upyri Empire'.
