If there's a force difficult to quantify as a faction, or organization, it's 'The Siege'. Led by Tiamat, even the very name 'The Siege' was coined by a human reporter commenting on how the entire human race had been laid siege by the dragon. The description stuck, and humanity came to call the war against Tiamat a war against 'The Siege'.

But Tiamat represented a force like no other the world had ever faced. The dragon was very much an army of one, and it made this perfectly clear in it's declaration of war. It's first act; to kill every single man, woman, and child in north, central, and south America in a hail of soul seeking homing beams. The dragon would go on to personally erase Great Britain from the globe entirely, before finally being confronted by The Divine Golems high above the ancient underwater civilization of OZ. This mighty clash led to over 90% of the world's life vanishing.

Tiamat was forced to withdraw from The Earth, unfortunately for the remnants of humanity, the dragon had discovered a derelict trans-dimensional weapons system known as 'Arsenal' in the short time the dragon drifted between life and death, before making it's evolution into Tiamat. Arsenal was designed by an ancient alien civiliazation to oppose the aliens who masterminded Tiamat's very creation, so ironic it is then, that it would ultimately fall into the dragon's ranks.

Following the fight against The Divine Golems, Tiamat had Arsenal deploy it's Girtarion kill bots to The Earth's surface to hunt down the remnants of humanity. Mankind would have gone extinct then and there, if not for a treaty Tiamat had made with the child like people of Luna. The Lunarians lived on the moon in perfect peace for centuries prior to the coming of Tiamat, and had developed a level of technological advancement far above what the people of Earth had. Not wanting the Lunarians to potentially intervene in it's quest, Tiamat made a treaty with them. In exchange for Luna's neutrality, Tiamat provided them with Phoenix, an immortal flame that would serve as Luna's ambassador to 'The Siege'.

Phoenix took pity upon the remnants of mankind, and declared Bastion off limits to Arsenal's Girtarion kill bots. Phoenix also created Dreya, to watch over the people of Bastion. As for Tiamat, the dragon converted the last of The Global Security Network's orbital staions into it's den. It renamed the station 'Avalon' and outfitted it with a Lunarian built cloaking device. The few humans who remained on the station were altered by the dragon into 'dragonkin', humanoid reptillian creatures loyal to their creator. Here, Tiamat has remained for 250,000 years, allowing it's wounds, and the wounds of the Earth to heal. Now that the Earth's vitality has been restored, The Return of the dragon is at hand.

The Emblem of The Salvatican Royal Guard is a badge of absolute authority in Salvatica, their power and influence second only to the royal family. And the symbol of that power is the splitting image of Lady Vixal. She served as the first Captain of The Guard, but going further back, she has less than illustrious origins. She was created artifically by Felonian geneticists looking to explore the Sagely properties of the Felonian species known as the multi-tails. The multi-tails is a new species originating on the Felonian continent that shows signs of great intelligence, but is incapable of speech, and walks on all fours. But the most fascinating aspect of the species is that they all show signs of Sagedom. The Tax Federation paid researchers handsome salaries to unlock the secrets of this species, and Lady Vixal was the result of one such expirement. She's a hybrid, crossing Vulpine and Multine genes in an atempt to create an ultimate sage to serve as a weapon against The Oniwaban. She spen the first five years of her life in an isolation tank, and was deemed a failure, as she showed no signs of being anything other than a normal vulpine. As a result, she spent the next ten years in a monitoring bubble. But the lab where she resided was high on Exeter's list of targets during the revolution. His rebel forces managed to put an end to the research facility, and Vixal was freed. But she was weak, barely able to walk on her own, and terrified of the outside world. Exeter's men suggested a mercy killing, but Exeter himself took great pity on her, and said she would be his burden to handle. Though she was never allowed out of her isolation tank, or monitoring bubble, Vixal was given a formal education, and she kept Exeter, who had been a mere field slave, dazzled with her stories of Felonian science. She quickly overcame her inability, and joined Exeter's forces on the battlefield. She finally showed her sagely power, and was constantly growing more and more powerful. And as her strength grew, so did her number of tails. By the end of the conflict, there wasn't a single weapon in The Felonian arsenal that could withstand her power, and she had grown a collection of nine tails. It's no small exaggeration to say it was her power that played not only a major role in Exeter's surviving the war, but also in it's ultimate outcome. And by the end of the war, Exeter and Vixal were madly in love. But the people of Salvatica feared Vixal's power and saw her as little more than an odd Felonian creation. Though Exeter was loved by all of Salvatica, he was the only one in Salvatica who loved Vixal, and the two were gradually forced apart by the growing powers in the country who sought to place themselves behind the throne of Exeter The Monarch. Devastated at the loss of the only person of any importance in her life, Vixal accepted the title of Lady, and vanished into the shadows of The Royal Guards court, never to see or be seen by Exeter again. Though she was The Captain of The Royal Guard, it was largely in name only. The Sages under her command were little more than jailers, present to ensure that she doesn't leave her eleborate confinement. Much to her dismay, Vixal never showed any signs of aging, and outlived not only Exeter, but Devon, and Cornwall as well. The Royal Guard stated that Lady Vixal was finally killed in The Felonian nuclear attack on the country, but how they managed to survive something that could kill her has never been mentioned. With the age of Vixal over, a new day came in The Royal Guard, and with the help of Parmelia; Queen Matriarch, they gained great power in the country. Power that hasn't been threatened until Advisor Noric and his Sage Corps appears in the country.
