The Taiidan (Second Human Empire: ?) once controlled a vast interstellar empire until the First War, which ended with the death of Emperor Riesstiu IV the Second. The Taiidan Empire was founded over 3000 years BHL, after a large galactic conflict caused hundreds of smaller governments, who had achieved interstellar travel through contact with the Bentusi, to consolidate into several large empires. The Taiidan were one of the races that founded the Galactic Council, and in the first years of its existence they brought numerous conflicts in front of the Council, against the Hiigaran Empire. The Taiidan joined the Axis of Empires.
