The Eternal Empire is a conquering force that has consumed many worlds. While some have said that its name is presumptuous, those who uttered such words are now among the ranks of the dead. It employs a number of space lords in its ranks. The empire possesses the strength to destroy entire stars.
However, it suffered centuries of rebellion. To quell such dissent, Space Lord Leoric was created/appointed to stamp out betrayal. The Space Lord has brought countless worlds under the empire's thrall. Now, only the Star Princesses of Earth stand in the empire's way. Sensing an opportunity to finally gain the advantage over those meddling princesses, Leoric was dispatched to swiftly bring the Nexus to heel under their command.
