Inquistadorial Monarchy

The Inquistadorial Monarchy is a sizeable space faction that concentrates its power on their massive mother planet of Dios and the surrounding systems on the southernmost frontier of the Brittanian League as well as holds some colonies on desolate parts of the Brikverse that are valuable to its economy. They worship their mother planet and regard it as a god. Inquistadores are a highly hostile faction that hardly have any friendly contact with other space nations and are at odds with many of them. This is because of their highly racist ideology and often overbearing feeling of superiority. Peaches, Brittanians, followers of other religions, atheists and any kind of non-humans are amongst their prime targets. Despite being almost constantly at war with many factions at a time, the Inquistadores only attempt to increase their territory bit by bit when they have amassed enough slaves to colonize it and have thus avoided full-scale, all out warfare a lot, even though there have been several major conflicts with the Brittanian League. Inquistadores are extremely ruthless and are infamous for their outright brutal way of approaching warfare.


Government



The Inquistadorial Monarchy is extremely war-driven. All of the men are raised into the army, administrative functions are mostly handled by women or those men that are too old or incapable to fight. Slaves, captured on the frequent raids Inquistadores hold across the Brikverse, are responsible for the manual labour. Despite being a Monarchy the King holds little actual power even if he is well-respected. It is the noble houses that hold most power, and the most influential houses can each send a representative to the Grand

Council that truly rules over the Monarchy. An Archduke is elected by the Noble houses to lead this council, and this Archduke is typically the most powerful man in the Monarchy. Backstabbing, political intrigue, murders and clandestine warfare are not uncommon in the Monarchy. This ensures only the strong survive, but sometimes makes it a little bit difficult for the Inquistadores to gather behind a common goal. When the nation is threatened however, differences are often set aside for the time being, but an Inquistadore never forgets.


Armies


The Inquistadores' armies are split up into Legions. Typically, each noble house commands a Legion, though various smaller houses may band together for the creation of one, or very powerful houses may even field two or more Legions. In battle, Inquistadorial units are known mostly for their tough armour, versatility and firepower but also for their common lack of mobility, an error they are too proud to fix. The armada is almost entirely made up out of Dragonhead cruisers and the ground forces typically field many tough infantry units with different strengths and uses supported by heavy machinery.

The most important Noble Houses include:
- House Del Montero: an influential House who's main strength is keeping the Inquistadores' military technology up to date. They are essential to fielding the Inquistadorial Legions.
- House Valenza: known for delivering the Archduke for five times in a row now, House Valenza is easily the most powerful House in the Monarchy.

Royalty


The Inquistadorial Monarchy used to be an absolute Monarchy until the King became too dependent on the nobility to fund his war efforts and lead his armies, and they have gradually taken over everything. Now Royalty's true purpose lies mostly on the field of battle and it is there that they have a chance to gain their respect.
The most important members of the Royalty include:
- Prince Vinambre: a well-loved, undefeated commander of royal blood who is the embodiment of all of the Inquistadores' virtues.

Involvement in the Immortal War

At the eve of the Immortal War the Inquistadores joined the Immortal Alliance in G.R. 2011, despite their reservations about siding with 'barbarous', less than desirable factions such as the VoL or their age-old enemies the Brittanians. Self preservation outweigh principles with the Inquistadores and they were certain they would be able to gain the Emperor's favour rather than any of their inferior newfound 'allies'. Looking to lay their hands on the resource-rich planets found there, the Inquistadores quickly offered to attack the Neo-Prussian Empire. Along with the Vol and the Brittanians, house Del Montero formed up the 6th Immortal Legion and departed to strike at the young Empire. This led to the Prussian-Monarchial Conflict.
