After the conclusion of the first interstellar war, Unity collapsed from a lack of leadership. The entity known as Hastur had taken the Ellium warship and fled the system during the height of the battle for Earth. Damocles units stood side by side with Machina units, all under the control of the Pax Galileo. For the first time in memory, the Earth faced the prospect of global peace. Stripped of their advantage, the Ellium could now be forced to seek compromises as the Pax forces began open communication with the Sons Of Chaos. Alhana rose to a position of leadership as she grew, her ability to enslave any machine intact. If necessary she could force negotiation, but more times than not, it was forthcoming on its own.
