The Dark Star Empire
The Empire, dating back thousands of years was founded primarily by different groups of bloodthirsty, savage aliens, as well as olden Saiyans (Who had made their way into the galaxy over the course of hundreds of years). They own a large chunk of their home galaxy, and though being (somewhat) aware of some things in the north galaxy, they've been largely disconnected from them.
Saiyans from this galaxy are generally more "rough" and "wild" looking in appearance compared to their North Galaxy counterparts- On top of also acting much more aggressively. They have a more active bloodlust than North Galaxy Saiyans, and are largely unchanged from the days of old when they'd launch their young out to go and conquer planets. Naturally, due to the lack of a certain Namekian influence, they are also much more violent.
Aliens born in the empire generally tend to be as violent and aggressive as Saiyans, if not even more so. Aliens don't HAVE to be violent, however, as the empire has absorbed many alien races, including those with much more "supportive" roles and docile personalities. Keep in mind though, that this IS an *evil* faction
It wouldn't make much sense if Saiyans were the only ones to cross the barrier between galaxies, so if you WANT, you could be something apart from a Saiyan or Alien. Keep in mind though, that the species you choose will likely be very different from the ones in the North Galaxy, For example- red or purple skin instead of green for Namekians, Taller, more robust Arcosian base forms, Maybe less advanced androids.
Ultimately though, the way you make your character is up to you- You don't even need to be from the Empire to join. Jicamo, for example, is a Saiyan from the North Galaxy.
The empire rewards those that serve it dutifully and faithfully with RANKS. These ranks serve as honorable symbols of a soldiers status within the ranks of the empires.
Starting off- the most important position in the Empire, The Emperor. The only way to achieve this position is by defeating the current emperor, thereby ensuring that the strongest individual is always at the head of the empire. The only exception to this rule is the death of the Emperor, be it due to war or because of old age (in which case a relative would assume the title). The emperor bears a white star as a symbol of their position.
A Dark Devil is an elite soldier under the direct command of the Emperor. They are among the strongest in the empire and are ranked even greater than a Warlord. All soldiers aspire to join their ranks! They bear a black star enveloped by a larger purple one as their symbol. These are handpicked by the Emperor, and typically act like generals when they're not on missions.
The Warlord is a skilled fighter, generally having been through many intense bouts, who has been given "command" of a battalion of soldiers. They have free reign over what they can do with these troops (unless ordered otherwise). They are chosen by both Dark Devils and the Emperor alike. They bear a purple star as their symbol.
An Elite is a soldier who has proven themselves time and time again and has been trusted with the command of a small group of soldiers. These can be chosen by anyone of higher rank, but are generally only chosen by Warlords. They bear a red star as their symbol.
Those without ranks are regarded as grunts, soldiers who have not been deemed worthy of being more than just that, a soldier.
