History of the Organization: The Sharidins where some 700 years ahead of Earth in technology. They had a large and wealthy Empire. They dealt fairly and followed their own version of the Prime Directive with pre-warp worlds. One of their most recent contacts was an Ane world called Coventry (now Oz).
The Kliges'chee were without mercy. The Sharidins without surrender. The Kliges'chee had the greater numbers, Sharndin greater technology did not prevail. The Sharndin did not give a single AU without a lot of liquid methane being spilled. Their no surrender defense gave the Aneilogs time to prepare. The Kliges'chee obsession with wiping them out caused other worlds to get lighter treatment or if not warp capable to be ignored all together.
Of all the worlds attacked by the remorseless Kliges'chee Shaird was given the most attention. It was blasted until there was no world. The deep instillations continued to fire until the world itself was cracked.
Once the shooting was over the Comptrollers took stock. Between the destruction of the Sharidin, and the implacable defense of the unknown ones (Encarta) they had paid dearly in ships and drones. It would take centuries before they could advance again. It gave the Zantree time to exist, and arm.
Aneilogs adopted their script after contact. They had a usable system and Sharidin were frequent enough visitors. They have continued to use the script, and it is the only remaining known evidence of the Sharidin culture.
Recent developments indicate the Sharidin might not be hopelessly beyond the grave. A damaged Sharidin ship with sleeper tubes was recently discovered. The 18 survivors were recovered.
From their records a Sharidin archaeological expedition was discovered, some 50,000 strong after the 600 years of isolation. This population was split between that world, now New Sharid and the Aneilog colony of Cansas for reasons of safety.
