The Sons of Darius are a break-away faction of the Old Persian Empire, established in 1023BC. They are the second most powerful ally of the Xanjin Technologist Imperium and are in a tense relationship with the New Greek Empire. Their capital is Ulamunba and their current leader is king Naviarac. The Militia was first formed in response to the aggressive actions of New Greece against the Old Persians. When this empire fell, they sought refuge with the Xanji and eventually became independent upon the confirmation of the Indepex di Darutu Milita document, by Xanj Emperor Shanumenavesir, the Formidable and then-leader Xalukino, the Young.
