Taldryan is a Clan of the Dark Jedi Brotherhood. The Clan was initially founded from Independent House Ektrosis, at which point House Archanis and House Dinaari joined with them to complete the structure of what would be the most dominant Clan in the Brotherhood's history. For over a decade Taldryan was the first clan of the Brotherhood and winner of five successive Great Jedi Wars. While not the juggernaut it once was the Clan still maintains a proud culture of teamwork, community, and competition.

- Main article: Clan Taldryan history
Clan Taldryan was formed from Independent House Ektrosis in 13 ABY, several years before the great Exodus. It was made into a Clan and joined by House Dinaari and House Ektrosis upon settling in the Kr'Tal System. Taldryan occupied the Kr'Tal System for 15 years before abandoning the system in the wake of Justicar Jac Cotelin's surprise attack upon the Taldryan Dominions in 35 ABY. From Kr'Tal Taldryan set about consolidating its place at the forefront of the Brotherhood and at the top of the Clans by providing several Deputy Grand Masters, Justicars, Tribunes, Dark Councilors, and Combat Masters. Sons and Daughters of Taldryan served as heads of Societies, Orders, and facilitated inter-club gaming opportunities with those organizations allied to the Dark Jedi Brotherhood. After a year spent on the run from the Justicar's minions and Inquisitors Taldryan settled into the Caelus System in 36 ABY.
Government and Politics

Society and Culture
The Taldrya are members of the Clan who have sacrificed much in the name of their Brothers and Sisters. They have taken the Clan's motto and internalized it, living and breathing its meaning. Among the Clans of the Brotherhood no honor is so sought after as the prestigeous recognition of the Sons and Daughters of Taldryan and to bear the name of the Clan itself as their own. Members are considered on their years of contributions, activity, and leadership spent in service of the Clan. New inductees are considered only after recommendation by present Taldrya and internal, secret debates among the whole of the Taldrya. Once it is decided to bestow the honor of the name Taldrya upon a member they are inducted into the secrets and rites which are the sole possession of the Brotherhood's most exclusive club. Taldrya are expected to continue in their service to the Clan and are often called upon by the current Summit to weigh in on matters of importance or to clarify records of the past.
The Sons and Daughters of Taldryan exemplify the virtues and qualities sought after in all members of the Clan. They are drawn from all walks of life be they Gamers, Writers, Roleplayers, or Leaders.
The Taldryanites are the many members that belong to the Clan, positioned in all levels, from new Apprentices, Battle Team Leaders, and those armed forces that have declared allegiance to Taldryan, serving in the Security Service. Members of this class have much more access within Taldryan - more locations in the system than the average person, but still subject to limited access on Fleet vessels, as well as any other stipulations set in place by the Summit.
- Main article: Office of Secret Intelligence
The Office of Secret Intelligence is the Clan's intelligence gathering and counter-intel apparatus charged with providing the Consul the very best up-to-date information. Under the directorship of Vodo Biask Taldrya it was firmly established in 36 ABY in the Caelus System and quickly set to work normalizing realtions between the native population and the Clan.

Allies and Enemies
Taldryan currently holds no official alliances with any of the Clans in the Brotherhood, nor does Taldryan have any future plans for an alliance. To many, the other Clans are seen as inferior next to the might of Taldryan and there would be no benefit for the Clan to ally. None can match our strength in military, nor the dedication found in our membership.
Neither enemy nor ally, Taldryan has a different relationship with neutral Clans. Ever suspicious and distrustful, Taldryan views neutrality as a lack of immediate conflict. As long as they remain non-threatening to Taldryan interests, the Clan chooses not to provoke them.
- Naga Sadow - Pompous and overconfident, Naga Sadow has always nipped at the heels of Taldryan's greatness. The bitter rivalry between the two Clans formed ages ago and reached a climax during the Sixth Great Jedi War. Since that time the Clans formed a brief alliance with the threat of the Yuuzhan Vong being greater their the rivalry. The alliance shortly fail and conflict returns as the Battle of Antei struck. Following the Incursion the Clan has decided to stay on neutral terms with them.
- Plagueis - While Plagueis has been seen as an enemy since their inception, the Summit now takes a neutral position. Many still see Plagueis as the weakest and most pathetic Clan in the Brotherhood.
Taldryan has become one of the most feared and hated Clans of the Brotherhood due to its near-flawless record of victories in major wars. Because of this the enemies of Taldryan are numerous, though most are too cowardly to admit to open hostility. Regardless of this, certain Clans have managed to earn the wrath of Taldryan.
- Arcona - Arcona was long thought of as Taldryan's biggest rivals, but during the reign of Halcyon Taldrya relations between the two Clans took a turn for the better. They have since been through several new leaders and have continued to revert to enemy status.
- Scholae Palatinae - Scholae Palatinae is seen as little more than an annoyance that needs to be ended in the most brutal of fashions. Past and current leaders of the Clan have strengthened Taldryan's belief that they should simply be wiped off the face of the galaxy. In more recent times they have shown signs of growth, daring to even battle Taldryan in conflict. This has served to further Taldryan's desires for their destruction.
- Tarentum - For years Tarentum was considered an enemy Clan, but the two found a common enemy in Scholae Palatinae. It wasn't enough to bring the Clans together as allies, though they did manage to declare dual neutrality. After the blatant assault on Taldryan during the Vong Incursion, the Summit considers Tarentum a hostile entity.
Taldryan carries the motto of the Brotherhood within a Brotherhood. This holds true in all they do, safeguarding the Kr'Tal System and its boundaries from unwanted guests. Normally the Clan's first interest is increasing its many assets, but they spend an equal amount of time securing their current holdings, as well as maintaining a strong sense of Clan unity. When provoked their actions are swift and vicious, always with the entire strength of the Clan behind any action taken.
Taldryan has always had a strong sense of loyalty towards the Dark Brotherhood, more so since they participated in the Exodus that separated them from the tyranny of the Empire's Hammer. While Taldryan would never follow blindly, there is a bond between Clan and Brotherhood due to having had many prominent members serve in various positions on the Dark Council, including the seat of Grand Master. When other Clans rebel, Taldryan is usually the first to stand up for the unity of the Brotherhood - whatever the cost.
