Krylos City

Krylos City

After a much devastating Civil War near Chardin Prime, it was decided to move the base of operations to a new location. As you notice in the history, this move was made into the Aquian dimension using jump gate technology.
With a penal colony already existing, and fully functional, they decide to make this the new Imperial City of SCM, furthering their growth. Krylos City is the main Headquarters to all the leading branches, the Navy, Marines, and Sky Command.

Sky Command Headquarters is located in the Northern Regions where it can remain hidden but known to the Imperials.

The Marine camp is outside the city, where they conduct their some of their training etc.

The Navy is within the Imperial city in the Defence Complex.

Of course, military isn't the only thing living on Krylos. During the move, we brought civilians along, and they made use of the land to create residence, industry, and commerce. An example of commerce would be the Shifting Sands Tavern run by Ms. Ashley Burns.

During peace time, this become a place of prosperity and serenity. During war, this place becomes a place of alertness and tension. No matter what, Krylos Base is ready for anything (we hope).

Krylos City

Written by
Krylos City - the golden city of the SCM Empire.

"This will be the place for a village," - T'krall

There is archaeological evidence of human occupation of the capital area from approximately 14,000 cycles ago, but the dense layer of much younger debris obscures these earlier sites.
Evidence of stone tools, pottery and stone weapons attest to about 10,000 cycles of presence. Several excavations support the view that Krylos City grew from pastoral settlements in the surrounding hills, although the actual date is subject to controversy. However, the power of the well known tale of the diaspora and the foundation of the city on the site of a penal colony tends to deflect attention from its actual, more ancient, origins

Criminal Investigative Agency (CIA)

Written by
The Criminal Investigation Agency (CIA) is the main operational branch of the Krylos Police Force and it is dedicated to investigating and solving serious crime, and targeting organized crime and recidivist criminals. The CIA has existed since the settlement of Krylos following the diaspora.
The CIA has officers stationed around the planet. Their job is to investigate serious crimes such as homicides, aggravated violence, sexual offending, drug offences, crimes against society, and fraud as well as general policing operations, at times they work hand in hand with the Krylos Guard Battalion in the Capital.

The Starchamber

Written by
The Starchamber is a Krylos court of law who sit at the Royal Palace, and was composed of Privy Councillor and common-law judges, to supplement the judicial activities of the common-law and equity courts in civil and criminal matters. The Starchamber was established to ensure the fair enforcement of laws against socially and politically prominent people so powerful that ordinary courts would likely hesitate to convict them of their crimes.
Court sessions are held in public, although witnesses and defendants are examined in secret. Defendants are given prior notice of the charges against them, and have the right to be represented by an attorney. Evidence is presented in writing. Over time, the Starchamber has evolved into a political weapon, a symbol of the misuse and abuse of power by the monarchy and its courts.
 
The Court evolved from meetings of the Emperor's Council, with its roots going back to the first days of the empire. Contrary to popular belief, the so-called "Starchamber Act" of the second Senate did not actually empower the Starchamber, but rather created a separate tribunal distinct from the Emperor's General Council.

Imperial Senate

Written by
While the Provincial assemblies continued to meet after the founding of the Empire, their powers were all transferred to the Senate, and so senatorial decrees acquired the full force of law. The legislative powers of the Imperial Senate were principally of a financial and an administrative nature, although the senate did retain a range of powers over the provinces. The Senate could also regulate festivals and religious cults, grant special honors, excuse an individual (usually the Emperor) from legal liability, manage temples and public games, and even enact tax laws (but only with the acquiescence of the Emperor). However, it had no real authority over either the state religion or over public lands.
During the early Empire, all judicial powers that had been held by the Provincial assemblies were also transferred to the Senate. For example, the senate now held jurisdiction over criminal trials. In these cases, a Consul presided, the senators constituted the jury, and the verdict was handed down in the form of a decree and while a verdict could not be appealed, the Emperor could pardon a convicted individual through a veto. Each province that was under the jurisdiction of the Senate had its own court, and, upon the recommendation of a Consul, decisions of these provincial courts could be appealed to the Senate.

Frontier Borders Intelligence Service (FBI)

Written by
The Frontier Borders Intelligence Service (FBI) is the security service of the SCM Empire, which is responsible for the protection of the Empire and its citizens from espionage, sabotage, acts of foreign interference, politically motivated violence, attacks on the SCM defence system, and terrorism.
FBI officers have no police powers of arrest and are generally unarmed. Generally FBI operations requiring police powers are co-ordinated with the Criminal Investigative Agency and/or with provincial and planetary police forces. However, under the Imperial Security Legislation Amendment Bill  passed by the Imperial Senate, FBI officers are exempt from prosecution for a wide range of illegal activities in the course of conducting "operations". This means they may carry arms, detain people, or carry out a wide variety of other ordinarily illegal acts in the course of operations.
FBI Central Office is in Krylos City, with a local office being located in each planetary capital. A new 630 million imperial crown Central Office, within the Civil Services Complex, was officially opened by the President Sandar Plecks two cycles ago.
