History of The Empire
The Empire of the Hand was formed from the fourth reincarnation of The Chiss Ascendancy, during a troubled time for the Chiss people. The once strong community had split into two distinct philosophies. The Progressive Chiss who favored a more liberal and free society and greater cooperation with other racial groups and the Traditionalist Chiss who wished to culturally isolate the Chiss from other races and maintain the strict society of the past Chiss.
It was the Progressive Chiss who suggested that the concept of a "Chiss Ascendancy" be dropped as the name had become associated too much with the xenophobia and racism of some (but not all) Traditionalists. It was then that a prominent Chiss historian approached the Command of The Fourth Chiss Ascendancy with his findings on Chiss history. He had discovered artifacts of an ancient Chiss Empire.
The Ascendancy Commanders made a unanimous decision to reincarnate this Empire as a bastion for those Chiss who chose to follow the Progressive philosophy. The Chiss historian also identified the Imperial family name of the Ancient Empire, Ascendancy Command went in search of any descendant of the last Emperor within the galaxy.
There was however only one living descendant that could be found, The Last descendant of the Emperor was by rights the last Emperor of The Empire. He was however gravely ill and died before the Empire was ready to be officially formed. Disappointed but resolved Ascendancy Command reformed into The Council of Four and began the process of reforming The Ascendancy into a New Empire. On Day 156 of Year 13 The Empire of the Hand was born.
