The Poku Saeruo Degonjo, or Hidden Sun Clan, is a player faction created by Nashoba. It is one of the Star Army universe's most developed factions, with an incredibly detailed culture.
Around 750 years ago during the myriad struggles for dominance, a race of felinoids chose to find a place where they could live their lives by their own warrior code. So they packed up all that they owned, and left in their fleet of ships. They gathered resources along their journey with lasted about 50 years. Eventually they chose to settle in the large nebula about 80 light years south of Yamatai. They were lead to it by the super nova that coalesced into the nebula. The inner core of the star remains a dim remnant from which they called their new home the Hidden Sun nebula, and themselves the Hidden Sun Clan.
In their language Hidden Sun Clan is Poku Saeruo Degonjo or Clan of the Hidden Sun.
The name for the dominant species in their language is Qaktoro khăk-tō-rō (sing.) and Qaktoroi khăk-tō-rōē (plur.)
“In the great dark time, there was much turmoil in the void. Worlds burned like the bright suns, and people fell dead where they stood. From this crucible, Kotoz Mui, greatest of the war lords said, If we are to survive as a people we must leave before the great fires consume us. So the word went out among the people. They gathered all of the people who were fit for the great journey. They loaded all that they could carry onto the great void arks. Then when no more could be loaded, they left the orb of their birth. For many years the people traveled through the void. From time to time when supplies grew low they would hunt, and then clan would continue on. It is said that one night while on the ark Prowler; Kotoz Mui beheld the light of a star that appeared from nowhere. He took this as a great portent, and turned his ark and the others towards the light. They came upon a great mist in the void, and many feared to enter. Kotoz chided them and called their warrior status cheap. He did shame them when the Prowler entered the mist and so they followed. Deep within the great mist they did find a dark star, the one that had led them here. Here with the mist of the star to hide them from the others, the clan would build a new home, a place from which they could hunt and prosper.” Clan Story Keeper Vespe
754 CY (YE 35) was a major period of change for the Poku Saeruo Degonjo. After centuries of keeping to themselves, they have made contact with one of the factions in the sector. With the YE 35 HSC - YSE Treaty they moved out of the shadows and into the light.
Poku Degonjo Saeruo in the past used a variety of methods to gather resources to support the clan. This has made them consummate salvagers.
However, now the clan is embarking on the fulfillment of the great pledge, the colonizing of a world and making it their home. To this end they will need pacify the planet and then supply the fledgling colony with resources until it reaches solvency.
The Poku Degonjo Saeruo protected the location of the Sotâka Ruomâqi (World Station) to the death. The HS-ST3-1a Fuâmy'a Ruomâqi (Watcher Stations) still serve as the protectors for the clan's home world. Since their location is no longer a secret they have assembled the Wotanu Abokatinka Poku (Clan Defense Fleet) to patrol their territorial borders.
