The Sun Eaters
The Rahnian Sphere
Empress Avra rules this vast empire. The base of which is a giant sphere enclosing a galaxy. Stars are thrown into the galactic Black hole and the inside of the sphere captures the energy and uses it to make life habitable on the outside of the sphere. It has about one lightyear of actual atmosphere. Floating worlds hover above the surface of the sphere and both ships and flying creatures are used to traverse the sky. Also, a network of gates makes traveling between worlds fast and cheap.
Avra rules with the help and support of Jessica, Her royal consort. Having overthrown her Father Rahn the Remorseless a generation ago with the help of Kal, his wife Honor and their team of freedom fighters including Mariko (Kal’s mother), Gruua, and Mauz.
