The Black Claw Empire was an intergalactic empire that spread to the far reaches of many galaxies. The dog-like beings who ran this empire subjugated many other races, including humanity, in their grand expansion of conquest. After many centuries of rule, the enslaved races rose up and overthrew the Black Claw. It is unknown if any survived the backlash of the revolution.
Much information regarding the Black Claw Empire is presently lost, and much of humanity's history has been lost due to chaos and destruction caused by humanity's prolonged conflict with them.
After the revolution, the Black Claw Empire was rebuilt by humans as the Uesureyan Star Empire.
