The Mobian Empire

Symbol/Flag: (Pending. The current flag is of currently WH40K's Aquila of the Imperium of Man. Should have this changed to something more original.)

History of Mobius
Mobius was one of the first planets ever colonized by humans. On the planet, they discovered the race of animals exactly like that of Earth's except evolved into a cilvilized society. Their technology was advanced, though they haven't extended their reach into the stars yet. The humans formed their own government with its capital of Station Square and established its GUN military force. While interstellar travel was possible, interstellar communication was still years away from completion, and contact was never re-established with the homeworld.

At first, the two races coexisted, but several wars for supremacy eventually broke out between both sides. During the last war between the Mobians and the Humans, one human outcast fled to the Mobians, after explaining GUN's latest plans, the outcast was promoted by the ruling king as Warlord. His name was Ivo Robotnik. Robotnik led the Mobian Army against GUN and soon it became apparent that victory was assured. Robotnik however, had other plans. As the Mobians celebrated their victory, Robotnik lead a brutal coup de'tat against the king. While the Mobians were overwhelmed, the humans still managed to hold their ground against Robotnik's invasions.

Years of tyrannical rule against Robotnik sparked action. The legendary Freedom Fighters, lead by the equally legendary Sonic the Hedgehog harassed Robotnik time and time again. Eventually, Sonic finally managed to dispose of Robotnik for good. With Robotnik finally disposed, and the ruling family restored, it seemed peace was to return again. They were wrong. A race of Aliens, known as the Black Arm attacked Mobius with the intention of total destruction. It was this time that a former GUN project, Shadow the Hedgehog made his appearance. The Mobians were again unprepared for the onslaught, though the assistance of Sonic prevented total defeat. The human GUN military was also unable to defend against eh onslaught. The battle raged for days, and the forces of Mobius managed to claim victory, though it wasn't Sonic that was the victor, it was Shadow. Shadow soon disappeared after the battle was over…

Mobius began again to recover from the destruction. Both humans and Mobians became increasingly paranoid with each other. Though the humans wanted war, the ruling Queen did not want war. The Queen tried to calm the humans down through diplomacy, though this caused resent with much of the population. One secret project being developed by a splinter Mobian group involved a cloning project using Shadow’s DNA recovered from the ancient ARK colony. With it, they cloned what would be the hammer and anvil of the new regime to come. A second coup de’tat was launched against the queen, except this time it wasn’t robots that were attacking, it was Shadow, or thousands of Shadow clones. A Mobian claiming that the current regime was setting up for ruin proclaimed himself the Emperor of Mobius and proceeded to turn the capital city to ruin. The humans, seeing an opportunity to finally assume total control over the planet, unleashed GUNs full fury at the Mobians.

Sonic and his famous crew soon found themselves overwhelmed against both aggressors. Sonic knew that Mobius was done for, and yet he would have the last laugh. A Mobian archaeological expedition found the original colony ship of the humans, which somehow was still functional. Sonic managed to assemble the loyalists to the colony ship and prepped it for take off. Both sides caught wind to the escape plan. Both sought to destroy it, though Sonic again became the hero. He leaked to both sides the ‘location’ of the potential launch site. Both armies converged to destroy the colony ship, but instead found each other. A massive battle took place, thus giving the loyalists enough time to launch the colony ship. The ancient hyperdrive installed on the ship was still functional, as well as the location of the homeworld of the humans. Both Sonic and the former Queen believed that humans and Mobians could co-exist. They hoped that the nations of Earth would accept them. Fortunately they were proved right. Though Mobian society soon established on Earth, Sonic and his crew, namely Tails and Knuckles disappeared without a trace…

The Rise of the Empire
The War on Mobius raged for 2 years. Seeing as how the Queen has fled, the remaining Mobians had no where else to turn to but the new Emperor. The Emperor ordered conscriptions to begin, though many had already signed up out of their own free will. The sheer numbers of the conscripts and the power of the new Shadow clones soon proved to be too much for GUN to handle. When it was clear defeat was inevitable, the president of the humans pushed for surrender. The Emperor refused. Within hours of the denied surrender, Station Square was taken, and the humans were rounded up and executed, the president being the first to die. No humans were said to have survived, though few still remain on the planet, ever hunted down by the Emperor’s agents.

With the destruction of the humans came the discovery of their technology for space travel. While the colony ship may have evaded their grasp, the Mobians soon acquired hyperdrive technology. With this came their own colonization project. The Mobians spread their influence to nearby habitable systems. Soon the current Empire began to take form. The Mobians also learned the location of the human’s homeworld. Many of the Emperor’s attendants pushed for continued war with the humans. Unfortunately, they discovered that the old Mobian loyalists had moved there, and along with that, knowledge of the atrocities the Empire had committed. Along with that, the Humans have already expanded as well, even beyond that of the Empire. The Emperor concluded that though they would be distrusting of the humans, there would be no further warfare with them, though he decreed that no non-Mobian would step foot on Mobius.

There was much dissent within the Empire after the takeover, and not even the powerhouse that was the Imperial propaganda machine could keep the masses in line. The Emperor needed to make the masses believe in him and the Empire. He believed that the galaxy wishes to be rid of him, as Mobians had suffered much over the past decade, but warfare with the humans was out of the question. The answer came with the first Great War.

The First War
The first War exploded with a fury that even shook the Empire itself. The Mobian Alliance, the Earth-based high-tech Human/Mobian military organization, as well as it’s allies soon found itself defending the planet from Robots, Living Snowmen, and other oppressive armies bent on conquest. The Empire sent an expeditionary force to assist the Alliance, led by the famous General Aleksander Sturnn and Imperial Commissar Yarrick. The Imperial troops fought well against the enemies of the Alliance, mainly against the Mecha Army. The arrival of the Corvolt Imperium, however, changed things. The Expeditionary force soon found itself on the losing side against the seemingly numberless enemy. Imperial Warships joined against the Corvolts in the Battle of Earth. In the end, the Alliance, along with the Imperials were forced to retreat. The response on the home front was catastrophic to the Empire, until they found out the Corvolt’s atrocities.

The Second War
The Corvolts and their allies soon formed their own coalition, the Terran Dominion. The year that passed was one of the most brutal in Earth’s history. The population was certainly oppressed, but the even more brutal treatment of the Mobians was the ammunition that the Emperor was hoping for, and without censure, presented it to the whole Empire, saying that Mobius itself would be next if they are not defeated (ironically, that was the Corvolt’s plan). The response was overwhelming, Mobians all across the colonies cried for revenge. The Emperor did not even have to rely on conscription; citizens were flocking to recruiting stations left and right. When Mike Rugar, commander of the Alliance and head of the remaining colonies formed the League of Free Worlds, the Mobian Empire was the first to sign on.

The Second War was fought mainly on the new ‘continent’ of Pangaea. Even in this small area, the fighting was intense as the first war. Once again, General Sturnn led the Imperial Guard on its re-conquest of the Earth. Much of the initial invasion was centered on Malta Island, where both League and Dominion forces were caught in a brutal stalemate. Eventually the deadlock was broken, and the Dominion was forced into the defensive.

The Imperial troops were some of the hardest fighting units in the entire League. The Emperor himself commanded that his legions take no prisoners. The Imperials were the first to lead the siege of City 1. When the Second Battle of Earth began in orbit, Imperial warships sacrificed themselves to ensure that the League’s flagship Macross was able to close with the Corvolt Invasion Carrier.

With the death of Admiral Sun, Mobians everywhere rejoiced…

The Aftermath, and the Third War
The astounding victory against the Dominion cemented the Emperor’s rule over Mobius and its colonies. The Empire grew more powerful than ever, with the Imperial Guard as its protectors. Earth relations fell somewhat after the Second War, as the Emperor denied Empire troops to join the Advanced Police. The Empire left behind secret listening posts, their mission to report any further outbreaks of war on Earth, which the Emperor decreed inevitable, and any war that involved the Earth was deemed priority. The Corvolts were all but annihilated but much of the Dominion’s forces were still on the planet.

As the Emperor had predicted, war began again. The Mecha Army had arisen, and the rest of the Dominion along with them. Not long after the war began one of the Empire’s listening posts transmitted coded transmissions to all nearby Imperial fleets. Coincidently, General Sturnn and Commissar Yarrick were the first to receive the transmission. After transmitting the message to Mobius, Sturnn ordered his battlefleet on course to Earth.

The listening posts kept track of Dominion progress. When Sturnn was informed of Mobian executions committed by the Violet Wolf Army, Sturnn had his target. He struck right into the heart of the VWA in the Ukraine. Commissar Yarrick himself led the charge as he had done previously in the Second War. It turned into a stalemate quickly, and Yarrick found himself on the defensive as VWA troops smashed against the Imperials. The final blow came when JDR’s new Onslaughterer Mobile Suit completely obliterated Imperial forces and captured Commissar Yarrick. For once, Sturnn was scared. The raw power of JDR and the VWA made him believe that this war was not going to be won quickly, and not without cost. He ordered all forces to retreat back to orbit to regroup and wait for reinforcements.

After seeing the power of the reborn Terran Dominion, and the ineptitude of the ADP and its allies, Sturnn wonders if this war could ever be won…
