Primary Contacts: The Officers It was not on the streets of Ilium, or out on the open plains of Deradune. It was in a small camp just south of Ellevar that a band of Marauders had gathered. Having spent the last several days raiding Lowborn encampments near Hyrest the band was happily toasting its bounty. They did not notice the shimmers dancing along the firelight of their camp. An aging Highborn sat with them smiling at using these cast offs as a mean to increase his holdings. All had gone according to plan. That ended when the Oghra near him was impaled upon the now decloaked armclaw of a Draken Stalker. Then another, three more appeared around the Marauders as they moved to grab their weapons. Suppression fire erupted from the darkness as the camp was soon littered with broken bodies. A tall white haired woman made her wait toward the man, she had the bearing of a Highborn Cassian, and yet the ferocity of one of those pirates. "What do you?" the man's sentence was ended with a gunshot to the head. He went limp as the woman then turned. "Lord Augustus a former servant of aging Luminai who still lives on Cassus," one of the Stalkers reported as they noted the dead. "Good, we can finish what the Emperor and the High Sentinel started," another voice rang out among the silent squad of attackers. "For Emperor, and Dominion," the woman said as she turned. The rest uttered the words and followed after her. The hit was blamed later on Exiles, but some within the local Legion attachments knew, the Sovereigns had once again taken care of another dirty *cupcake* who needed to go.

Spoiler We are a group of friends and family seeking to foster an adult laid back environment for Roleplay and gaming in general. Many of us are from various gaming backgrounds and are hoping to build an ongoing saga of deep enjoyable story within the WildStar universe. We take inspiration from such stories as Outlaw Star, Farscape (Scorpius!), Sons of Anarchy, the BlackList, Dollhouse, and James Bond. The BrightStar Sovereigns and the greater BSC (BlackSky Community) is a haven where Friends Roleplay and Game Together. For this reason we LGTBT* and Military friendly, as well as all other groups throughout the gaming world. Who are we IC? Spoiler “For Emperor, and Dominion!” The BrightStar Sovereigns Imperial Agency, were once a bloodless corporate entity who has seen themselves transformed in recent years. The BrightStar name once meant duty, honor, and loyalty to ones comrades. Things have changed however, the blind can now see. When Emperor Myrcalus cleansed the corruption from the Vigilant Church, and the Empire, the Sovereigns were among those at the forefront. Seeking retribution, and to remove the tarnish upon the name of the BSIA. Comprised of all races of the Empire, the Sovereigns came to Nexus seeking answers, and to discover the destiny of their order. Sovereigns are soldiers, ICI agents, Vigilants, Huntresses, inventors, and much more. The Sovereigns take their name in response to their desire to enforce the order, and prosperity that comes within the Dominion. Bound to remove Exile schemes, and to unearth their plots to undo the Empire, they are hunted by their nemesis, the terrorist BlackSky Malverines. What we offer: Spoiler 1. Stability and Inclusion The Sovereigns (and BlackSky Community) was founded by a group friends well before launch, and have spent that time building an elaborate open ended story together. Not only does your new character have a chance of direct inclusion from the day you join, we actively include new members in the story to have an option in the spotlight. We do not believe in isolating people, but instead strive to build a long standing band of friends and family. Not only that, but our community is accepting. We maintain a high level of ease and calm through an environment of open communication, and respectful interaction. 2. Immersion of the Lore and World WildStar's lore is incredibly accessible with hidden gems and wonders found across Nexus. For this reason we not only have ongoing story-line events, but simple events ranging from bar nights, to exploration into the bowels of Nexus itself. All of which is recorded in our Setting blog known as the Chronicle for players to enjoy later on! 3. Strong and Evolving Story Our guild plot plot incorporates the Sovereigns and their rival guild from the Exiles, the BlackSky Malverines, who through common interaction will forge an ongoing evolving storyline. This is not the only basis of our story as we plan to use character action as a driving force of the plot. One member hears a conversation one day, could become integral in an event later on. Our story will also be continually changing. One day an enemy another day a friend. Players will have the ability to defect or betray their faction or even more. 4. Be a Unique Character, and Define your Role Not everyone wishes to fight, and not everyone wants to be a healer. Our guild has active businesses in-game ranging from mercenary work, to an active bar or saloon ran by both factions. Players can work for the Sovereigns in general, or as a member of any of our businesses (while still being a full Sovereign). Allow you to experience the Roleplay you want, while still having the chance to expand later on! Wish to fight? Be a fighter, or a soldier!. Not a fighter? Be a scientist, or a barfly! Define your character in the Sovereigns as you see fit! Consider us the Guardians of the Galaxy with some serious backers. We Sovereigns rather die with our friends, than run from our enemies!
