Historically, SRI served as Taldryan’s intelligence agency, having been founded as the successor to the former Taldryan Intelligence Directorate. Following their reorganisation, SRI’s covert-action function was transferred to other divisions of the Clan, leaving them free to work on technical research and development (leading some to refer to them as Taldryan’s “mad scientist cabal”). SRI maintains some of its intelligence functions, however; their technical expertise made them Taldryan's ''de facto'' signals-intelligence division, and they were responsible for reverse-engineering enemy technology and developing new tools for Taldryan personnel to use in the field.

Fictional Information


In late 37 ABY, Consul Rian Taldrya and Proconsul Seraine "Erinyes" Ténama began reorganizing and expanding Clan Taldryan’s activities, to provide more opportunities for members to contribute in ways that suited their individual skills and interests, as well as extending the influence of the Clan itself. As the divisions solidified, the Clan Summit instructed each of them to send any requests they had for assistance from the Clan’s membership to the Summit, who then distributed the requests to the membership. Members were then free to choose which assignments they would undertake. Taldryanites were encouraged to affiliate themselves with a division within the Clan that reflected their skills and interests, but they were free to accept missions from any division they chose. As they gained experience, members who affiliated themselves with a division could be offered leadership opportunities within their division.

Divisions


Community Outreach


Leadership:


Affiliated Members: TBA

Following their arrival in the Caelus System and the expulsion of the Ky’Lian Cartel, Taldryan worked to build a strong relationship with the people of Caelus. Clan members worked with the local community in a variety of ways, from operating free medical clinics in disadvantaged areas to mediating disputes and assisting Caelus Security with investigating crimes.

Suggested Disciplines: Director, Field Medic, Scoundrel, Seeker

Force Mystics


Leadership:


Affiliated Members: TBA

The Force moves in mysterious ways, it’s often said, and Taldryan’s Force Mystics worked to solve those mysteries in whatever way they ccould. The Mystics served as a combination of seers, sorcerers, and librarians, often working in tandem with the Lorekeeper of Taldryan to recover lost knowledge and relics. Some Mystics also worked with Taldryan’s information network, using their Force visions to guide intelligence-gathering and defend the Clan from threats.

Suggested Disciplines: Arcanist, Seeker, Sorcerer, Techweaver

Information Network


Leadership:


Affiliated Members: TBA

Formed from the merger of Warlord Vodo Biask Taldryan’s personal espionage network and SRI personnel responsible for gathering intelligence, the Information Network (or as Proconsul Ténama called it, “Vodo’s House of Shady Deals”) was Taldryan’s spy agency. Their primary duty was to watch, listen, and report their findings back to the Taldryan Summit, while leaving direct covert action to other Taldryanites.

Suggested Disciplines: Infiltrator, Scoundrel, Seeker, Shadow

Private Military Company


Leadership:

  • Division Head: TBA


Affiliated Members: TBA

Officially, the PMC was an independent group of non-Force-using bounty hunters and mercenaries, and it was just a coincidence that many of their operations targeted entities that Taldryan's leadership considered dangerous or troublesome. Surprisingly, that official story was largely true. The PMC had a strong working relationship with Taldryan’s Clan Summit, to the point that the company considered Taldryan one of its “preferred clients”, and Taldryan did offer the PMC support from time to time (including both personnel and equipment). However, the company didn’t take orders from Taldryan’s Clan Summit unless those orders came with a signed contract and a stack of credits, and they readily accepted work from other clients.

Suggested Disciplines: Ace, Director, Field Medic, Hunter, Weapons Specialist

Sphere of Research and Intelligence (SRI)

Leadership:


Affiliated Members: Bale Andros (design consultant), Nihlus Vexrii (engineer/researcher)

Historically, SRI served as Taldryan’s intelligence agency, having been founded as the successor to the former Taldryan Intelligence Directorate. Following their reorganisation, SRI’s covert-action function was transferred to other divisions of the Clan, leaving them free to work on technical research and development (leading some to refer to them as Taldryan’s “mad scientist cabal”). SRI maintains some of its intelligence functions, however; their technical expertise made them Taldryan's de facto signals-intelligence division, and they were responsible for reverse-engineering enemy technology and developing new tools for Taldryan personnel to use in the field.

Suggested Disciplines: Scavenger, Techweaver

Taldryan Military


Leadership:


Affiliated Members: TBA

Taldryan members who worked with the Clan’s military forces functioned in the same way as the Jedi Generals of the Clone Wars, both leading the troops into battle and increasing their effectiveness. Non-Force-using Clan members fulfilled the same role, rallying the personnel they served with through combat experience and leadership skills instead of the Force. The size of the unit to which the Taldryanite was deployed varied by their rank. Novitiates nearly always accompanied a senior Clan member, but were sometimes assigned to a platoon as part of their training. Journeymen fought alongside company-sized units, Equites typically supported entire battalions, and Elders oversaw regiments.

Suggested Disciplines: Ace, Defender, Director, Juggernaut, Field Medic, Marauder, Weapons Specialist

TEAD Technologies


Leadership:

  • CEO (Division Head): TBA


Affiliated Members: TBA

TEAD Technologies was the "legitimate business" face of Taldryan for decades, and the Clan's move to the Caelus System only gave the corporation more opportunities for expansion. The first additions to their portfolio after their relocation were the Clouzon-36 extraction operations on Perune, and the development of mining operations in the Caelus asteroid belt. TEAD also offered logistical solutions for clients located in high-risk areas, and sometimes used independent contractors to fulfill those needs.

Suggested Disciplines: Ace, Director, Scavenger, Scoundrel, Techweaver

OOC Information


Taldryan's fictional divisions were created to give Clan members more opportunities to interact with their fictional universe. Each of Taldryan's divisions specialises in different fields, providing more depth for activities like fiction competitions, where members will be able to choose between "missions" offered by various divisions—and in some cases, favour certain divisions over another, in ways that will meaningfully affect Taldryan's fictional development. The original divisions system was developed by Erinyes with input from several other DB members (both inside and outside of Taldryan), and implemented by Rian and Erinyes in late 2019.

Member Affiliations

As mentioned in the fiction section, members are encouraged (but not required!) to affiliate themselves with a division. When a member chooses to affiliate with a division, it represents their "day job" within the Clan—the thing they spend most of their time doing, whether or not it's a "job" in the traditional sense. Members may change their affiliation at any time.

Being affiliated with a division will not prevent members from participating in activities that are fictionally sponsored by other divisions. In fact, the Clan Summit encourages members to use the interactions between divisions to tell interesting stories, like a Force Mystic butting heads with an SRI researcher or the Taldryan military having to work with the Clan's private-security arm.

Division Structure and Advancement (WIP)

Each of Taldryan's divisions has its own fictional structure, styled according to its theme: military units for the Taldryan armed forces and PMC, "departments" for SRI and TEAD Technologies, "cells" for the Information Network, and so on. The heads of the fictional divisions will be appointed by the Clan Summit, but members will have the opportunity to take on other leadership positions within the division they're affiliated with, if interested. Initially, the level of leadership a character may take on will depend on the character's Dark Brotherhood rank. As the divisions become more established, other criteria may be added, such as the number of times a character has supported a division during their activities.

Note: The positions and hierarchy listed here are purely unofficial, and to be used for fictional purposes only.
