Final Fantasy Adventure
The Archadian Empire began as a collective of small countries that began working together to protect themselves from the large number of daemons that roamed the continent. They formed what was originally called the Archadian Senate from the twelve noble houses of the kingdoms. As time passed, the family in charge of the military, House Dornne grew in power and eventually were able to place one of their own as Senate Chairman near permanently through the use of both underhanded tactics as well as outright threats. Slowly opposing houses were eliminated, leaving only five houses with seats remaining in the senate. After solidifying their grip on the growing nation, House Dornne declared them an empire and placed their first Emperor at the head of the remaining leaders. Emperor Marmus N'oth Dornne still remains in power after two decades and in that time the Archadian Empire has expanded its borders to all edges of the continent and have annexed a majority of the southern part of the north east one.
As of recent, the Archadian Empire has began using trade agreements, treaties and eventually force to expand their nation. This has caused much unrest in the eastern continents due to the sudden occupation by their vast army as they expand seemingly as if looking for something. In the recent decades, the Archadian Empire has been developing and buying large amounts of machina from scavengers all over. They are well known for their research facilities, high levels of magitek and use of materia in powering weapons. Their military is well known across the land, the most feared being the mysterious Dark Knight, elite warriors who clad in heavy ornate armor and lead squadrons of high trained soldiers called the Black Wings.
