The Retribution Alliance
The continent of Chymoús is an overcharged political climate. While the continent is split down the middle with the Moonlight Expanse on the west coast and the Itude Empire on the east coast, the continent was originally formated with only the Werewolves, Shapeshifters, Merfolk, and Phoenixes living together as one. Though, the arrival of the Vampires in the 12th century sparked the beginning of change throughout the continent. Though there are powerful alliances throughout the continent, the most powerful one is the Retribution Alliance, formerly known as the Ordnance Alliance. This alliance's best interests revolve around business, trade, and warfare. The Confederation contains five militaristic, powerful, and wealthy organizations that use their influence on civilians to help them with their cause through the war (at one point, there were six organizations).
"True peace can only be found through hard work and determination, but bloodshed will never accomplish those things."Back in the early 1200s EoL, the Moonlight Expanse, Sorrel Kingdom, Conjura, Phoenix Sun, and Flight Academy made a pact to keep the continent safe. This pact was called The Ordnance Alliance, where they worked to keep the threats at bay and not put anyone in danger. At one point, the Flight Academy got caught up in a Civil War with their people that led to the Conjura and Moonlight Expanse getting involved with their conflict. Some of this conflict brought a few new changes to the table, such as putting direct harm onto any of the organizations attached to the alliance pact. The civil war within the Flight Academy was quickly brought to a halt and the problems were resolved. Then, the vampires arrived in 1372 EoL to build the Itude Empire, which resulted in the Moonlight Expanse having some issues with the vampires roaming freely. As fights broke out between the Moonlight Expanse and Itude Empire, the other organizations felt it was deliberate and offered for the Itude Empire to join them.
"A perfect spy has no fear in the field."As of the year 1410 EoL, the Itude Empire joined The Ordnance Alliance and used their newfound connection with the other organizations to create a stable treaty titled the Treaty of Chymoús. This treaty allowed for equality between the werewolves and vampires, keeping an impending war at bay. Peace was kept for another eighty-two years when the Itude Empire organized an attack on the Moonlight Expanse, citing that the four reigning Alphas killed the empire's Empress. Due to a lack of evidence, the other organizations of the Ordnance Alliance banished the Itude Empire from the alliance and sought to "take care" of their threat. This caused them to change their name by 1493 EoL to the Retribution Alliance as they ended up joining the war to support the other organizations.
"As the moon shines bright,
Our flight won't falter,
Nor nature dissuade us,
Since we rise from the ashes,
And wash away our threats."
The true reason for the Retribution provides peace on the continent and that the war will not bring about anymore harm to the organizations. The Retribution further states that it is the purest form of the alliance to date as they categorize the vampires as true enemies of the world.
Politics & Practices
The Alliance follows two types of agreements on both land and sea. Due to these agreements, the Alliance meets four times a year over the use of Communication Crystals. Each of these meetings explains what is going wrong or right with their territory. At this time, they are allowed to ask for help or decline any form of help if need be. Every five years at the first meeting of the year, they are allowed to write up a new peace treaty that lets each member organization know what assets are going to be needed for the next five years.
Agreement of Land
The Moonlight Expanse, Conjura, and Phoenix Sun work with the land, setting up peaceful delegations between each of the groups.
Agreement of Sea
The Sorrel Kingdom has control over the sea as well as the Flight Academy since its islands float above the sea. They are the ones who help gain foreign assets for each of the member organizations.
