The Lyran Star Empire is the name of the official state of the Lyran species. Not much is known about it except that it is somewhat feudal with many Lyran Counts serving as rulers on other worlds. This also, unfortunately, has the side effect of resulting in many internal conflicts within the empire.
This has prevented the race from actively stretching their rule to dominating the galaxy. There are approximately 21 counties, each of which are ruled by a Count. Four of those counties are duchies which are led by a single Lyran Duke. Each county pays and supports the Lyran fleet; providing it with necessary maintenance while the local county controls the local border stations.
The duchies are known to make use of starbases. The Lyran Star Empire are an advanced species; making use of warp capable starships, disruptor weaponry and Expanding Sphere Generator technology that aids in their defence.
The Gorn Hegemony developed Gravitation Density Distortion Sphere technology which is said to be a creation of their own which works somewhat similar to the expanding sphere generator.

Translated by Binham, Timothy; Binham, Philip.Lyrans was the name given to them by their patron goddess Lor, but the name tagged to them when they first were found by the Elves was 'wind elves', and to many races that named stuck to them.
Another nick name given to them was Children of the Earth or what the plane they live on. Their are three different kinds of Lyrans, Wild, Street, and Temple.
Their is no physical differences between the three. They tend to be childish and act the part to throw off people, they often hide the fact that they are Lyrans, playing the part of a human or an elf's child, and some times a full grown teen. Each one's personalty differs from each-other, but the two main archetypes are the 'stand out' and the 'fade in' ones. Street Lyrans were owned as a slave or as an adopted child, they ether out lived or ran away from their owner, they set up shops or live as thieves around human or elf cities, using their child like appearance to gain sympathy.
They tend to resent elves for capturing them and selling them in the first place. Unless raised by other Street Lyrans they were taken from their family and sold in to this life before they escaped.
They normally build their houses to sit medium sized people if they own one. Unless they have a pet they tend to be scared of dogs. They tend to form grand underground networks of crime that rival most guilds.
Wild Lyans are tribes that were not captured by the elves.
Lyran (3.5e Race)
They farm and live near rivers to power their mills, they do this so that they can make the flour for their cakes. At first they welcomed all races, but as elves had captured and enslaved some tribes they do not welcome in large groups of people, a small party of eight could come easily come in without warranting too much from the guards.
They normally build their houses to sit small sized people if they own one. They hold no fear in their heart for any normal animals. Despite their size Orc tribes that share a hunting ground near a Wild Lyans tribe often show a respect for them. Temple Lyrans were taken in by temples, Mage schools, or Bard collages.
They pick up the trades by those who take them in and adapt to life as an every day item in the production of it. These tend to be the more sheltered of the three and are normally not taught anything they do not need to know.
Unless raised by other Temple Lyrans they were taken from their family and sold in to this life before they were taken to the temples, schools, or collage. They often go out with adventures to help improve their worldly knowledge. They appear to be normal humans or elves, they age at the same speed until they reach the age of 6, then they reach what is physically adult-hood for them, but they advance as a human would maturity wise. When they train they get just as much out of it as anyone else, but they do not look the same as some one who has, they retrain a softer look that keeps their child-like appeacne.
If they have a child with another race then the child will seem perfectly normal, until it reaches the age of six, at this time they start aging at a decreased rate. Mothers who survive often raise the child up to the age of six. Before the a organization known as God's Hand found the wild tribes of the Lyrans, they had little to do with any outside government.
After God's Hand found some of the wild tribes, they were sold in to slavery, often to elderly couples and to temples. This is how the three fractions were made. Lyrans often get along well with any race that will accept them. A group known as the 'Fireflies' are a gorilla army army that is trying to free all enslaved Lyran.Support sarna. The Lyran Commonwealth is one of the major Successor State of the Inner Spherelocated in the coreward, anti-spinward region of space relative to Terraand traditionally regarded as the wealthiest.
For the majority of its history, the Lyran capital was located at the Triad on the icy world of Tharkad. The Lyran Commonwealth allied with the Federated Suns in the FedCom Accords ; the Federated Commonwealth alliance was percieved as a single entity since the wedding of Melissa Steiner to Hanse Davion and the Fourth Succession War they launched on the eve of their weddingthough technically the two realms remained separate until Victor Steiner-Davion inherited rule over both parts of the Federated Commonwealth in The Lyran Commonwealth is renowned for its strong economy, powerful nobility, and its military policy of promotion based on pedigree as well as talent.
Unfortunately for the Lyran state, the promotion of so-called " Social Generals " has resulted in a military of varied capabilities.
Even though incompetent "social generals" are not the rule, the prevalence of many poor officers has hindered the Lyran state throughout its history. Though the military history of the Commonwealth is filled with missteps, the Lyran state has endured for many hundreds of years based on the capabilities of its industrial base and by the merits of the rare, capable officers produced by the system. The Lyran Commonwealth was formed in as a merger between three mercantile alliances, the Protectorate of DonegalFederation of Skyeand Tamar Pact.
The founding charter called for nine "Archons" to rule to nation, but the impracticality of this system led to a coup by the leader of Donegal, Robert Marsdenwho declared himself Archon Basileus in August An invasion by the Draconis Combine in resulted in the death of then-Archon Alistair Marsdenbrother of Robert, in Rule fell to his wife, Katherine Steinersafely ensconced on the new capital of Tharkad. The reign of House Steiner had begun.
The Lyrans lost territory to their neighbors, but in the tide turned when Operation Prometheus gave House Steiner plans for powerful new war machines, BattleMechs. The Age of War gave way to the golden era of mankind, watched over by the Star Leaguewhich the Steiners pledged to join in The Commonwealth economy prospered during this era, but it did not last.
The 1st and 2nd Wars blasted the Inner Sphere back into the industrial age as total war resulted in the deaths of millions, cities were destroyed, and JumpShips annihilated. The 3rd War lasted generations, but saw a return to the Ares Conventions that limited the collateral damage. The Commonwealth traded worlds with the Free Worlds Leaguebut steadily lost ground to the Combine. Though they all rebuffed her, First Prince Hanse Davion of the Federated Suns was intrigued and the duo began a dialogue that resulted in an alliance the betrothed Hanse to Katrina's daughter and heir, Archon-designate Melissa Steiner.
Coinciding with their marriage ceremony on Terra inthe two nations launched invasions of their neighbors. The Commonwealth used Rasalhagian revolutionaries to their advantage during the Fourth Succession Wartaking many systems away from the Combine. These gains were neutralized when Theodore Kurita recognized their independence inforcing the Lyrans to give up their hard-won planets to the nascent Free Rasalhague Republic.
The abortive War of was intended as a full-scale invasion of the Combine, but the surprising strength of House Kurita caused the allied nations to rethink their intentions, calling off the attack in short order. The two nations merged together more closely after the failed war, resulting in the informal creation of the Federated Commonwealth.
Because of his younger sister's manipulations, he quickly became unpopular among his subjects. Katherine Steiner-Davion seized on the opportunity and invoked war powers to secede the Lyran half of the nation from the alliance, calling it the "Lyran Alliance", and signed a peace treaty with Marik, resulting in the creation of the Chaos March. The powers recognized the need for cooperation to end the Clan threat, resulting in the resurrection of the Star League.
Archon Katherine offered Tharkad to host the Whitting Conferences, though her scheming never resulted in assuming the mantle of First Lord for herself.
Lyran Star Empire
When Victor led a task force to Clan space to ensure the destruction of Clan Smoke JaguarKatherine seized on the opportunity to take over the remaining half of the Federated Commonwealth.

Lyrans generally possess an abiding racial hatred of the Kzintione which is more than amply reciprocated by said race, while also disdaining the methane-breathing Hydrans. Interestingy, DNA evidence exists showing a common ancestry between the Lyrans and the Kzinti, yet neither race take what to their ears is a highly offensive suggestion lightly.
The Lyrans have been allies of the Klingons on numerous occasions, such as during the Four Powers' War and the far more destructive General Warin which they very nearly succeeded in reducing their hated Kzinti foes to subjugation, and the two races have jointly conquered and occupied the territory of the Hydrans on more than one occasion.
This weapon is quite powerful and consmes a lot of energy, but has many uses. Firstly, it can destroy incoming missiles and fighter craft. It can also be used offensively to ram enemy capital ships. This weapon is unique to the Lyrans although Orion pirates may fit stolen versions and is also widely feared by missile ships or carriers. As the name suggests, a sphere of energy is created around the ship. This sphere will be of a certain strength, depending how much energy is diverted to it.
When it hits a missile, shuttle, fighter, or, indeed, other ship, as much energy as possible damages the target until either the target is destroyed or the field runs out of energy to 'attack' with and collapses.
The field will, however, eventually disipate of its own accord anyway. It endures roughly the same amount of time it takes for a phaser or Fusion cannon to cool down after firing. Energy chanelled in does not affect how long the field endures, merely its strength. An interesting curiosity that can be observed is the fact that ships inside the range of the field when it is activated do not take damage.Battletech Lore - What are Warships?
This is because the field is, in essence, hollow. In this way, a ship can become trapped in the field until it falls. Fandom may earn an affiliate commission on sales made from links on this page.
