- "The Unity Empire was probably one of the greatest things to befall on the Mystic Realm. It had peace and prosperity. But like always, corruption led to its decay."
- — Entry in Dmitri Valenti's Anatomy of Evil: Hearts of Darkness —
The Unity Empire was an empire that controlled the Mystic Realm from 5321 OAE to 5204 OAE. The empire was controlled by Emperor Salvado Thoma and the Clockwise Earls. The Unity Empire managed to create inter-racial peace and prosperity, something not even the Elder Gods managed to succeed in.
In 5322 OAE, Elder Gods Yardas, Bloodpool, and Isosoplis waged war against themselves. Each god used a species to help them fight each other. Finally the thirty day war -later dubbed the Trinity War- was ended by Elder God Luke's intervention.
While the Trinity War was over, hostility between the fox spirits (whom had followed Yardas), shinigami (whom had followed Bloodpool), and necromancers (whom had followed Isosoplis) continued. Trinity War war hero St. Salvado, a Kim-un-Kur, enlisted the help of Atlantis in order to create a foundation of peace. Luke and colleague Elder God Amen, both whom were on the Kim-un-Kur Committee, saw this as a chance to mend the bad relations between the gods and Valentine's artificial Kim-un-Kurs. They agreed to help. Amen and an angel under his command, Jou'se, went to several kingdoms in order to get their support. The Rocain Faction, Wolfe Faction, and Cross Faction joined Salvado's group. Seeing as the other kingdoms were stubbornly holding onto their control, Salvado saw fit for the creation of an imperial army for his Unity Empire.
Salvado made sure to enforce that the purpose of the campaign against the other kingdoms was to unify the races of the Mystic Realm. The Unity Empire waged the Unification War against all five continents of the Mystic Realm. Thanks to the support of Atlantis, the Rocain Faction, the Wolfe Faction, and the Cross Faction, Salvado's army conquered the entire Mystic Realm by the ending months of 5321 OAE.
Immediately, Salvado created the twelve Clockwise Earls in order to prove that Salvado's army would not be a dictatorship. Instead, he had each of the twelve main species be allowed to be represented by an Earl. In actuality, the Earls combined had more power than the Emperor, Salvado. To minimize hostility between species, the Unity Empire saw fit to form twelve Districts, one district for each Earl.
Age of Equality Edit
While the first few years were rough, the Unity Empire managed to create peace between the races. Eventually, it turned from a forced peace to a voluntary peace, which greatly pleased Salvado. There was only one record of hostility that occured during the reign of the Unity Empire.
7 Day War Edit
7 Day War started during a dispute caused by fraud in trade between the Ish'Rai clan and the Vahari clan. When the Vahashi's son was killed by a vanguard of the Ish'Rai, the Vahari seiged the Ish'Rai estate, Villa du Delacoure. Finally, it was ended when an elf named Faralda Evereve, cousin of the Earl of Elfen, with the help of an outsider, negociated a truce.
The outsider later helped the Ish'Rai get back the money stolen by the Vahari. They knighted the outsider and he served them for a year before mysteriously vanishing, leaving only a pendant that would later be brought down from generation to generation as a family heirloom, ending up in the hands of Rubi Delacoure thousands of years later.
In 5205 OAE, an unknown assassin killed Salvado and most of his family. The assassin was never identified or caught. The Earls began doubting each other and eventually fought amongst themselves, whether under suspicion of assassinating Salvado or to grab the throne. By 5204 OAE, the Unity Empire had crumbled away into nihilism.
The Imperial Years of Unification have since been considered the most peaceful time in the Mystic Realm. Its success by far rivals that of the Mystic Council.
After the Unity Empire died away, elves were hunted down and killed as trophies or captured and enslaved. By the time the Mystic Council rose to power, most of the elvish population was extinct.
Had it not been for the success of a Kim-un-Kur leading the Unity Empire, Atlantis would never had allowed Sirberius Reono to make the Mystic Council. However, the Kim-un-Kur Committee was greatly displeased with Sirberius' methods. Unlike the Unity Empire, Sirberius chose to have a less diverse council of leaders. The Elder Gods would eventually move onto the Council, attempting to manipulate them for their own gain. It would lead to their downfall during the Third Battle of Kaidva and the Ragnarok Tragedy.
Even after the fall of the Unity Empire, the descendants of the Clockwise Earls hold their respective Earl titles.
The Emperor & Clockwise Earls Edit
As explained above, the Unity Empire was ruled by Emperor Salvado and the Clockwise Earls. Each Earl represented one of the twelve main races in the Mystic Realm.
Emperor Salvado Edit
See main article: Salvado Thoma
Salvado Thoma was a hybrid of a human and a lycan. He was discovered by the Kim-un-Kur Committee as a Kim-un-Kur; alike other Kim-un-Kurs, the committee members, namely Luke and Amen, attempted to befriend this Kim-un-Kur. It led to their advantage when Salvado led an army to neutralize the majority of the warring armies in the Trinity War. Later, Salvado would become the Emperor of the Unity Empire. He led it to peace and prosperity with the aide of his "others", Jinda and Bran.
In 5205 OAE, Salvado was assassinated along with the majority of his family. By 0 NAE, only one descendant remained: Thomasmith Thoma-Stark.

Behind the Scenes Edit
The Unity Empire was to give more insight as to why the Kim-un-Kur Committee allowed Sirberius Reono to form the Mystic Realm along with showing that the Mystic Realm had been peaceful at one point in time.
The Clockwise Earls were based on the Vampire Council from a cancelled book called Approach the Twilight by Dmitri, which, itself, was based on a role play from Crunchyroll (just like Mystical Community) called SAtL, or Supes Approach the Light. The Vampire Council titles like Moja to Juuni could be translated into the numbers 1 to 12 respectively. The name "Clockwise" was made from how both the amount of Earls and numbers on a clock both have twelve, a pun also used for The Clock Tower in "Memento Mori".
In making of the Earls, he based Fleur Delacoure off a Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire character named Fleur Delacour. Lex Ellis, given his first name in order to make a pun by combining his name and his descendant's name to make Lex Luther, an antagonist from Superman. Natzi Stark's name came from how a person usually pronounces the word "NAZI", the German faction that had been led by Adolf Hitler.
Each of the Clockwise Earl title names translates as something in German: "gottheit" means "deity", "hybride" means "hybrid", "mensch" means "human", "elementar" means "element", "dämon" means "demon", "fuchs-geist" means "fox spirit", "engel" means "angel", "werwolf" means "werewolf", "blutschößling" means "bloodsucker", "drache" means "dragon", "elfen" means "elves", and "todesgott" means "death god".
