Pre Government History
The Ailon culture can trace its roots back more than 13,000 years. With it comes a long tradition of military excellence, for it was first as soldiers that the people of Ailon made themselves famous throughout the galaxy. Ailon warriors trained religiously and considered it not just a job, but rather a way of life. All members of Alion Nova Guard were required to prove themselves worthy in battle to represent the Guard by going through a rite of passage which they took one year into joining the Ailon military.
Prominent in both past and present forms of Ailon military training is unarmed combat, passed down from generation to generation. There are two martial arts in particular which have been popular among Ailon’s warriors: Teras Kasi and the fighting techniques of the Echani.
Ailon soldiers were also highly regarded for the skill with non-projectile weapons. Popular among Ailon military personnel was the Eklot, a short sword treated with a quick-working neuro toxin. Of course, as time went by and technology advanced, the members of Ailon Nova Guard were forced to adapt to more and more advanced blaster technology. None the less, the ancient military traditions remained strong, now more than ever.
The Ailon Nova Guard fought alongside Republican forces during the Clone wars. After the fall of the Republic and the rise of the New Order, Ailon Nova Guard was slowly disbanded due to new regulations imposed upon military forces by the Galactic Empire. Despite these military restrictions, Ailon Nova Guard continued to serve the Empire on several occasions, though eventually its warriors were relegated to less than desirable jobs. It was during this time that many members began to feel the weight of time upon their still proud shoulders, and soon the guard slowly faded out of the limelight. Many years had passed and only a handful of the original members remained. One such young man, whom at the time was 18 standard years of age, was Draith Shadux.
With the guidance of the last remaining members of the Ailon Nova Guard, Draith was trained along with two other men, Seige Delarouge and Izen Ru, in the traditional military fashion of Ailon. The three went their separate ways, but a chance meeting years later resulted in the three friends sharing a new ambition: they wished to see Ailon Nova Guard grow to prominence once again. With roots so strong, and the climate of the Galaxy so favorable, it would not be long before the Guard grew, and indeed flourished.
Draith and his companions needed a capital in order to create Ailon Nova Guard, but in the years that had passed Draith had been able to obtain three factions: The ship production company TransGalMeg, NovaTech Mining, and the droid manufacturing company Baktoid Combat Automata.
Draith, who had eventually come to take charge of rebuilding Ailon Nova Guard, decided to sell Baktoid Combat Automata.This gave him the necessary resources for the creation of Ailon Nova Guard as a security group. Finally, the Guard once again existed as an organization independent from the control of other governments. But Draith was not content to have Ailon exist as a mere security force. He later sold NovaTech Mining so he would have enough resources to make Ailon Nova Guard a government. This gave Ailon Nova Guard a good foothold in the Bormea sector, and soon the population began to rise as the sentients there prospered.
Now the foundations had been laid, but the effort of reviving a culture left Draith exhausted. He retired from his governing duties, passing the responsibility of tending to the growth of Ailon Nova Guard to Teyacapan Quetzalxochitl.
Draith had focused primarily on the old Ailon Nova Guard tradition of military excellence. While this certainly gave the members of Ailon a strong sense of self, it also made the economy nearly unsustainable. Therefore the first change Teyacapan made was to focus more on the economic situation and less on the old traditions. Soon the economic was flourishing, and the Bormea Sector and who inhabited it were enjoying the newly made wealth. The growth of Ailon continued, at rigorous pace.
At that time Ailon Nova Guard was rather neutral in the conflict between the Galactic Empire and the Galactic Alliance, however it was not long before the Galactic Alliance offered to allow Ailon Nova Guard into its ranks. The offer worked out for both sides, for the Galactic Alliance gained a growing economic and military force among its allies, and Ailon Nova Guard was able to expand its military with the alliance’s assistance. Most importantly, Ailon gained access to powerful Mon Calamari warships.
Ailon Nova Guard now ranked as one of the most powerful, rich, and populous governments in the Galaxy. The economy and production capacities were flowering. Yet certain individuals felt that not all was as it should be...
Post Government History
It was at this time that Ailon Nova Guard’s leader Teyacapan Quetzalxochitl did something which took many of the Galaxy’s sentients by complete surprise: she sold the government, including the still present TransGalMeg Industries, to the Galactic Empire. Members of the Galactic Alliance were more than a little angry: not only had they lost an ally, but their sworn enemy had gained control of all of said ally’s territory. Of course, the people of the Galactic Empire were overjoyed. The Galactic Empire claimed that there were celebrations on the streets of Chandrila, the former capitol of the Guard. The Galactic Alliance claimed that the Empire was subjugating former citizens of Ailon Nova Guard to a tyrannical and oppressive rule.
Any and all fixed assets were sold. Anything that could not be picked up and carried was gone. Anything that had to be defended, or that could otherwise be a liability in the foreseeable future, was gone. All that remained was an armada of ships, weapons, equipment, droids, and a confused Ailon citizenry.
In the midst of much criticism, speculation, and propaganda Teyacapan Quetzalxochitl explained her reasoning to the people of Ailon. She sought a return to the traditional culture of military excellence that had once earned Ailon Nova Guard galactic renown. Seen from this perspective, it would appear that in the process of growing to new and immense heights, Ailon had forgotten its roots.
Now Ailon Nova Guard is one of the busiest shipbuilding organizations in the galaxy with dozens of shipyards spread out over several systems. Their impressive military continues to grow every year ensuring that if war should break out ANG will have a say in who wins the galaxy.
