Hydronian Empire

A space-faring empire that was founded by refugees who fled Earth after the initial Corvolt invasion. Having returned to Earth, they do their best to keep the peace on their old homeworld.—-

  • Badass Army Having faced the Lyvek, the Mobian Empire, the Imperial Guard and so on, by now the Hydronian military definitely qualifies as this.
  • Advertisement:
  • Bulletproof Vest Standard issue for the Hydronian Army as well as the Hydronian Marines.
  • Elective Monarchy - Although the Hydronian government is elective, the formerly hereditary title of "Emperor" is still what their main leaders are called.
  • ET Gave Us Wifi The Hydronians have a habit of reverse engineering any enemy weapon technologies they can get their hands on. This has ranged to weapons to- in the case of their troop transport ships - entire warships.
  • Highly Conspicuous Uniform Like the Liberators, the Hydronians have a theme color- blue- and BDU's and armor to match. This is starting to be subverted though, with Hydronian colors being grey, black and white with blue highlights.
  • Multicultural Alien Planet - The Hydronians trade with a number of races [Even after the war with the Lyvek, they were willing to trade with the Lyvek run Ishuda Industrial Pantheon] and encourage tourism and immigration.
  • Advertisement:
  • Named After Their Planet - This goes without saying. Hydronian, Hydronia.
  • Peace Conference Hydronians tend to run a lot of these, and almost always attend the ones that other factions set up. This has been a trait in both the West and GC Campaigns.
  • Perfect Pacifist People Outside of warfare, the Hydronians are a peaceful, diplomatic people. This has actually gotten them into trouble before, with them briefly allying with both the communist COTR and the ultrafascist/capitalist FSA in the West Campaign before they realized what these factions were like.
  • We Will Wear Armor in the Future Some infantry units in the Hydronian military fit this trope, including the Stormtroopers, Heavy Marines, and their ODST's.

The list of CO's and main characters of the Hydronians

Supreme Commander Nicolas Ozzel

Nicolas Ozzel is a veteran from the war that began when the Lyvek invaded Hydronia. By the time the first Hydronian fleet arrived at Earth, he was an Admiral. He was eventually promoted to Supreme Commander of all Hydronian forces in the Sol System, and through extenuating circumstances where the empire was destroyed, had to take on the position of Emperor of the Hydronian Remnant on Earth for a short time.
  • A Father to His Men: He isn't afraid to express shock or sadness, and obviously cares a great deal for both Hydronia and its citizens and soldiers.
  • Captain Smooth and Sergeant Rough: Is the Captain Smooth to General Marshes Sergeant Rough.
  • Cosmopolitan Council: Because he had to focus on his duties as Supreme Commander, it was heavily implied that Ozzel relied on some sort of governing council to perform the task of governing Hydronia when he was Emperor.
  • Fire-Forged Friends - Implied to be how he befriended General Marsh.
  • Four-Star Badass - Started out as an Admiral.
  • Officer and a Gentleman - Ozzel is cordial and polite most of the time, and the only time you'll find him swearing is when something really terrible happens.
  • Old Soldier - He's served in the Hydronian military for years, to say nothing of his grey hair.
  • Ramming Always Works: When his flagship, the Annihilator took a critical mount of damage, Ozzel elected to stay onboard as the rest of the crew evacuated and crashed the Annihilator straight into the Mobian Empires Eclipse flagship- taking its shields out when nothing else had. Luckily, he managed to get away in an escape pod at the last minute.
  • Reluctant Ruler - What he was when it came to being the Emperor- he's happier working for the military.
  • You Are in Command Now - What happened when the Emperor decided to stay behind on Hydronia when it was destroyed.

General Marsh

General Marsh is another veteran of the Lyvek invasion, and an old friend and ally of Ozzel. Although the two don't always see eye to eye, they have a fond friendship and are willing to work with each other to get things done.
  • Captain Smooth and Sergeant Rough: Is the Sergeant Rough to Ozzels Captain Smooth.
  • Cool Helmet: Has a rather large helmet that covers his eyes.
  • Colonel Kilgore: Although he denies having any sort of overwhelming pride for Hydronia - as Hydronians disdain any sort of nationalism- it's obvious that he loves the country, and leading his troops.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Used to have shades of this, but this eventually faded away.
  • Four-Star Badass: Has been acting in a leadership role ever since the end of the war with the Lyvek.
  • Instant Awesome: Just Add Mecha!: What happened when Marsh stumbled upon an old mech suit that still had a timespace unit, allowing him to join up with the Hydronians again, having been left behind after his-
  • Last Stand Made one of these when the Daleks invaded Earth.
  • The Dragon - Is this to Ozzel.

  • Lightning Bruiser: Becomes this whenever he goes Monoshift.

  • Determinator/Made of Iron: On many separate occasions he gets punched, kicked, cut up, shot at, blown up by tanks, impaled, perforated by a rocket, attacked by supernatural dark energy's, and it hardly slows him down.
  • The Men First: At one time he gave the men under his command a three day pass to relax while he had business to take care of.
  • Military Maverick Once told a political figure off because he didn't trust him (and annoyed the crap out of him)and didn't catch any flack from the higher ups for it.
    • Though it turns out to be the Big Bad in disguise, not that Briano and many other people know that.
  • More Dakka: While he uses varying types of firearms, his preferred weapon of choice is the M249 Machine gun.
  • Multicolored Hair: His hair is multiple shades of Brown.
  • Permission to Speak Freely: Asked this when a General acctually considered enlisting a young Magical Girl in the Liberators:
    Briano: Permission to speak Freely Sir?
    Liberator General: Go ahead Captain.
    Briano: ...ARE YOU ON CRACK?!
** Though in the end he has to accept it grudgingly, as the Magi-Tech the girl had would be dangerous in the wrong hands.
