Andúnilquen (Breezewood) Manor




Early Life

Kahlina Elenelirandúnë (Starbreeze), Duchess of Kormel, was born on October 12, 2358, at Breezewood Manor, into the esteemed family of L’mirin, Duke of Kormel, and Gwenna Starbreeze. As the youngest of six siblings, Kahlina enjoyed the privileges of her noble upbringing, but her early life was marked by a sense of responsibility and a deep compassion for others.

Advocate for Equality

The Starbreeze family was known for its outspoken abolitionist stance against the mistreatment of the Gorvan people, a reptilian species that had suffered centuries of subjugation since their conquest by the Narlin Empire. Kahlina’s father, in particular, was a vocal proponent of Gorvan rights, which greatly influenced her own perspective on justice and equality.

Academic Pursuits

Kahlina’s education at Laneerik Academy, the capital’s esteemed institution, showcased her dedication and commitment. While not at the top of her class, she earned respectable marks, demonstrating a well-rounded approach to learning that blended her academic pursuits with her growing awareness of societal issues.

The Onset of Civil War

At the age of thirteen, in 2371, Kahlina witnessed the initial sparks of a significant upheaval—the Gorvan slave revolt. Initially ignored by many, these uprisings escalated into a full-scale rebellion, with Gorvan slaves seeking their freedom across the Empire. The infamous Astor Massacre, a brutal response to the rebellion, marked a turning point. The massacre deepened Kahlina’s resolve to take a stand, and she left Laneerik Academy to join the Narlin Defense Forces as an infantry officer in the 4th Legion.

Frontline Struggles

Kahlina’s service in the 4th Legion immersed her in the heart of the conflict. The battles were fierce, and her determination shone through. The Battle of Ev’tel was a defining moment, where she led her unit in counterattacks against Gorvan forces. Despite her efforts, the harsh realities of war took their toll, leaving her gravely wounded.

Months of recovery and rehabilitation followed her injury. Although she had suffered physical setbacks, her indomitable spirit remained unbroken. Transferred to naval operations as a midshipman, Kahlina continued to dedicate herself to the cause.

A Heart Divided

Amid the turmoil of war, Kahlina found an unexpected connection. Her romantic involvement with Dahlan Stormrage, Duke of Tamerale, kindled a relationship built on shared ideals of equality and justice. Dahlan’s executive role on their ship allowed them to nurture their relationship while also contributing to the ongoing conflict.

Betrayal and Defection

Tragedy struck when Dahlan’s sympathies with the rebel cause took him down a different path. His defection to the Gorvan Confederacy shattered the relationship and left Kahlina torn between her love for him and her unwavering commitment to the Empire. His betrayal left her with a profound sense of loss and confusion, yet her resolute dedication to her people remained steadfast.

The War’s Culmination

After nearly two decades of bitter fighting, the Narlin Civil War reached an impasse. Kahlina’s rise through the ranks was emblematic of her dedication and leadership, culminating in her command of the HRS Narla’s Embrace, the Empire’s flagship. On the opposing side, Dahlan Stormrage had ascended to a position of leadership within the Gorvan Confederacy.

As both sides grappled with the question of how to end the conflict, Kahlina and Dahlan found themselves on opposing sides of history, embodying the complexities and contradictions of a world torn apart by strife and inequality.

Kahlina Starbreeze’s journey through tumultuous times encapsulates the resilience of a leader who faced adversity with unwavering determination. Her story is one of sacrifice, personal growth, and the enduring pursuit of justice in a world marked by division.

Fleeing Famine and Destruction

The year 2395 marked a turning point in Kahlina Starbreeze’s life—a moment when she faced a decision that would reshape her destiny. The Narlin Civil War had taken a devastating toll on the Empire, leaving a wake of famine and destruction that gripped her home in its relentless hold. The very land that had once been the backdrop to her noble upbringing was now scarred by conflict, famine, and the specter of despair.

Amidst the desolation, a glimmer of hope emerged: the opportunity for a fresh start beyond the confines of her homeland. Starfleet, the renowned interstellar exploration and defense organization, extended an open invitation to those seeking to embark on a new chapter of their lives among the stars. For Kahlina, this represented a chance to escape the legacy of war and find purpose in a realm far removed from the devastation she had witnessed.

Joining Starfleet

In 2395, Kahlina Starbreeze made the momentous decision to leave behind the remnants of her life on Talaria and join Starfleet. The allure of exploration, discovery, and the prospect of contributing to a greater cause beckoned to her. With the memories of the Narlin Civil War still fresh in her mind and the pain of her past weighing heavy on her heart, Kahlina set her sights on a journey that would take her beyond the boundaries of her homeworld and into the unknown expanse of the galaxy.

Stepping onto a Starfleet vessel marked a new beginning for Kahlina. The uniform she now wore symbolized not only her commitment to service but also her resilience in the face of adversity. As she embraced the rigorous training and discipline of Starfleet, she found herself surrounded by a diverse group of individuals united by their shared pursuit of discovery and the betterment of the galaxy.

Narlin Culture and Society

The Narlins, a humanoid species native to the planet Talaria, have a rich and diverse culture that encompasses spiritual beliefs, social structure, and history. Their society is deeply rooted in spirituality and tradition, and they hold a special reverence for Narla, the Moon Goddess.

Origins and History

The Narlins trace their origins back to the planet Talaria, specifically its fouth planet, Talara IV, also known as Talaria. Their history stretches back approximately 600,000 years, and their development parallels that of Earth’s human civilizations in many ways. Initially, Narlin society was divided along class lines, with monarchs, lords, warriors, executives, merchants, peasants, and outcasts forming the societal hierarchy. This class structure endured for millennia, even after it was officially abolished.

Monarch and Class Structure

The Narlin society was historically structured into various classes, each with distinct roles and responsibilities. At the top of the hierarchy was the monarch, either a king or queen, whose authority was often considered divine. The ruling monarch selected their successor, and the crown could be passed to a child or a close relative. Lords, who belonged to the nobility, played governmental roles, owned land, and led armies into battle. The warrior class consisted of skilled fighters chosen by the lords, and they were revered as national heroes.

The executive class encompassed professionals such as lawyers, religious authorities, teachers, and more. This class could only be born into and maintained their status by marrying within their class. The merchant class consisted of those who owned shops and businesses, and the peasant class formed the backbone of Narlin society, working in various fields and mines.

Outcasts were a marginalized group, comprising banished individuals, criminals, and the mentally ill. Despite the abolishment of the class structure, many Narlins continued to voluntarily adhere to it.

Narlin Empire and Unity

In the year 56 of Narla (equivalent to 005 BC), King Youlan of Kormel initiated a campaign to unify Talaria under the banner of Narla, the Moon Goddess. This unification, known as the Narlin War, led to the rise of the Narlin Empire. After decades of conflict, the last remaining nation fell to Queen Lehona of Tamerale. Lehona would eventually succeed King Youlan. Under their rule, the empire flourished, and a period of relative peace and prosperity followed.

Modern Era and Contact with Other Species

In 1880 (equivalent to 1931 AD), the Narlin Empire underwent significant societal changes, granting equal status to the executive class. The empire transitioned to a democratic rule.

In 2238 the Empire dipped its toes into space encountering  various interstellar civilizations, including the Drakari Coalition and the Federation. The Narlin/Drakari War, a four-year conflict, tested Narlin defenses and ultimately led to their victory with the development of a computer virus weapon.

The Narlins also formed an alliance with the Gorvan, a nomadic species, which brought mutual benefits to both civilizations. This alliance helped the Narlin Empire expand and prosper, leading to the establishment of colonies and shared resources.

Narlin Civil War

The Narlin Civil War, spanning from 2358 to 2388, was a devastating conflict that engulfed the Narlin Empire and brought its society to the brink of collapse. This internal strife was fueled by racial tensions, unequal civil rights, and a struggle for autonomy, primarily led by the Gorvan population. The war left an indelible mark on the empire’s history, reshaping its political landscape and forcing societal transformation.

Background and Causes

The roots of the Narlin Civil War can be traced back to deep-seated racial tensions within the Narlin Empire. While the empire had officially abolished slavery, the Gorvan population still suffered from limited civil rights and unequal treatment. This inequality was a source of growing discontent, especially among the Gorvans who fought alongside Narlins during the Cardassian War and felt that their sacrifices had not been adequately recognized.

The catalyst for the conflict was the secession of Gorvan Prime, a key industrial and military hub, from the Narlin Empire on October 15, 2358. This declaration of independence marked the beginning of a protracted and brutal struggle for autonomy.

Key Figures

Lady Audren Swiftblade, Countess of Varona, emerged as a central figure during the Narlin Civil War. Her efforts to promote Gorvan civil rights and push for equality marked her as a sympathizer to the Gorvan cause, leading to assassination attempts and threats against her life. Audren’s leadership and military experience made her a prominent commander within the Narlin forces, particularly among the Gorvan units.

S’lissik, a prominent Gorvan figure, played a critical role in the early stages of the conflict. His frustration with the slow progress of Gorvan civil rights led him to advocate for a more radical approach, culminating in the secession of Gorvan Prime and the declaration of the Gorvan Confederacy.

The Conflict

The Narlin Civil War was characterized by its extreme brutality and high casualty rates. Gorvan defectors played a significant role in weakening the Narlin military’s effectiveness, often defecting with entire ships and crews. The warfare during this period was marked by desperate battles, close-quarters combat, and sabotage, as both sides fought fiercely for control over key territories and resources.

Battle after battle, both Narlins and Gorvans suffered heavy losses, and entire planets were devastated by the conflict. The Battle of Glen Arvy stands out as a particularly brutal engagement, showcasing the grim reality of the war’s toll on both sides.

Consequences and Resolution

The Narlin Civil War finally came to an end in 2388, after nearly three decades of relentless fighting. The war left scars that would take generations to heal. Countless lives were lost, cities lay in ruins, and the fabric of Narlin society was forever changed.

As the dust settled, negotiations began to rebuild the shattered empire. The signing of the Treaty of Reconciliation in 2390 marked the official end of the conflict and the recognition of the Gorvan Confederacy as a sovereign entity. The treaty also established a framework for shared governance and cooperation between the Narlin Empire and the Gorvan Confederacy, seeking to ensure that such a devastating conflict would never arise again.

The Narlin Civil War’s legacy is one of tragedy, resilience, and transformation. It remains a cautionary tale of the dangers of inequality, unchecked prejudice, and the consequences of failing to address grievances within a diverse society. The scars of the war continue to shape Narlin culture and politics, serving as a reminder of the importance of unity and equality among all citizens.

Spirituality and Deities

Central to Narlin society is their spiritual belief system, with Narla, the Moon Goddess, being the primary deity. Narla is associated with both the sun and the moon and is considered the mother of all creation. Narlins worship Narla through rituals and ceremonies, with the first temple to Narla constructed 5,000 years ago along the shores of Lake Narla.

Other deities within Narlin mythology include Traios, Cyanous, Sirus, Ev, Kouse, Astria, Astor, Theila, and Mo’thiel. Each deity represents different aspects of life, including war, protection, love, and more. Theila, known as the Wolf Goddess, holds a special place in Narlin mythology as a protector and strategist.

Mating and Naming Traditions

Narlin mating rituals are deeply ingrained in their culture, with a mandatory mating season occurring once a year. During this time, Narlins seek partners to fulfill hormonal requirements for survival. While single Narlins may engage in multiple partnerships, married couples are monogamous, mating for life. Divorce is rare, and the death of a partner can lead to lasting emotional scars.

Interspecies marriage is uncommon and often involves a third party during the mating ritual. These marriages face challenges and higher divorce rates due to the complexity of the arrangement.

Narlin Naming Ceremonies take place eight days after a child’s birth and are conducted by a High Priestess and High Priest. The child’s name and sept totem are announced, often in an outdoor setting during sunset. The ceremony is marked by songs, rituals, and the application of pigments to the child’s face.

Narlin Defense Forces and Interstellar Relations

The Narlin Imperial Defense Forces form the core military branch of the Narlin Empire, with aerospace, naval, artillery, and infantry divisions. The introduction of invasive computer virus weapons revolutionized their military capabilities, allowing them to disable and control enemy vessels.

The Narlins have established contact with various interstellar civilizations, including the Cardassian Union and the United Federation of Planets. The Narlin/Cardassian War and subsequent alliances, such as the one with the Gorvan, have shaped their role in the broader interstellar community.


The Narlins, with their deep spirituality, unique social structure, and history of conflict and cooperation, offer a fascinating perspective on an alien species’ culture and civilization. Through their rich mythology, diverse classes, and complex relationships, the Narlins exemplify the intricate interplay between tradition and progress in an evolving interstellar society.
