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
As in most Clans of the Brotherhood, the Consul of Taldryan has absolute authority over the Clan's affairs, and the Consul and Proconsul jointly oversee the Clan's day-to-day affairs. Major changes to the Clan's structure and function are sometimes voted on by the Taldryan Conclave, consisting of the Sons and Daughters of Taldryan, the House Summits, Battle-Team Leaders, and occasionally other well-respected members of Taldryan invited by the Clan Summit.
- Main article: Taldryan Auxiliary Divisions
In 37 ABY, then-Proconsul Seraine "Erinyes" Ténama established Taldryan's Auxiliary Divisions: bodies that contributed to Taldryan's development and influence, but fell outside the normal sub-unit structure of Houses and Battle-Teams. Some of these divisions already existed in some form or another within the Clan, while others were created entirely anew. At their inception, there were eight Auxiliary Divisions: Community Outreach, the Force Mystics, the Military Prefecture, the Office of Secret Intelligence, the Sphere of Research and Intelligence, TEAD Technologies, and the Vornskr Battalion (a Taldryan-sponsored private military company), with the Clan's Battle-Teams making up the eighth division in their own right.
Following their arrival in the Caelus System, Taldryan was in the unfamiliar position of not being entirely in control of their home system's government. Following the overthrow of the Caelus Cartel, control of the system passed to the newly-formed Caelus Council. Although the Council was effectively installed by Taldryan, there were no official links between the two. The Caelus Council's independence became a threat to Taldryan in 37 ABY, when Council President Kain Eriston (the second-ranking member of the Caelus Council and a Collective sympathiser) led a vote to suspend Chancellor Ceyra Ky'Lian from her official duties, which nearly resulted in the Collective evicting Taldryan from Caelus.
Society and Culture
- Main article: Sons & Daughters of Taldryan
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.

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.
