ATTENTION CITIZENS OF THE EMPIRE
We are Anonymous.
In the absence of the Emperor, the counsel has ruled to the best of their collective abilities, and they have been found wanting.
The empire is in a state of relative chaos, where high ranking sith grab for power as far as they can reach, like children attempting to steal cookies in the absence of parental authority. Bounty hunters kill one another for contracts, and the military is ordered in many directions at once. While Malgus would claim himself the new emperor, doubtless, this too will cause only more dissention and conflict among ourselves.
Meanwhile the real enemy grows strong, waiting patiently for the empire to cannibalize itself through ancient political strife and new deceits. The Republic gains support, builds their military and the jedi increase in number.
Necessity is the mother of invention, and thus, our Empire's burgeoning needs have given birth to ANONYMOUS.
The Empire needs a private military, independent of the petty squabbling among Sith and thus we are.
The Empire needs a watchdog, ever vigilant against the rise of the Republic, growing on the shadows like so much fungus, thus we are.
The Empire needs special forces that can be employed without the delays of orders, authorization, or conflicted interests and thus we are.
The Empire is sick and possibly dying, it needs the bitter elixir of change, mutatis mutandis, thus we are.
