The video game Battleborn has a wide variety of characters, these selected group of heroes are called Battleborn. They are split across five different factions. They all have their differences but soon these fractions discover that they should put them aside in order to fight the dark foe known as the Valersi. This common enemy is behind the darkening of the stars and our Battleborn must protect the last star,Solus, and save the universe.
The factions are as follows:
- Eldrid – The nature loving faction that strives to remain at peace
- Jennerit Imperium – rule others by force, valuing power above all else
- Last Light Consortium – War profiteers made up primarily of robots
- Peacekeepers – The sworn protectors of Solus
- Rogue – The faction that isn’t a faction
A naturalistic order of observers and scientists, charged with the stewardship of the natural order of the cosmos. Long ago, the reach of the legendary Eldrid spanned entire galaxies — but as the stars themselves have faded into darkness, so too has the might of this ancient faction. As all eyes turn to Solus, what remains of the Eldrid are grappling with their place in a darkening universe as they rally in defense of the Last Star.
The Eldrid are very old and their knowledge archives are the oldest in the universe. They are compelled to understand, catalog, and preserve. The Eldrid are the protectors of the natural cosmological order. The Varelsi and the Jennerit are not liked by the Eldrid because of them breaking the rules of space-time. Then the Eldrid are anything but peaceful, they will accept anybody else that is fighting on the side of nature. The Eldrid are the magic wielders in Battleborn. They stand out with their fantasy style appearance. The leaders of the faction are generally very peaceful and want to avoid war. However, they still decided to send settlers to Ekkunar, one of the most dangerous planets in Solus.
Heroes of the Eldrid Faction:
The mighty Jennerit Imperium once led the fight against the Varelsi, forging alliances with the other factions to save the stars from the void. But in a desperate turn to spare his people from the darkness, the warlord Lothar Rendain staged a coup to seize control of the Imperium, and aligned its destiny with that of the Varelsi. Though the Jennerit have lost much in their struggle, they remain one of the strongest military forces in Solus.
Battleborn’s Imperialist faction comes from the gothic planet of Tempist and is known as the Jennerit Empire. They are ruled by an empress, but much of the power is held by an elite upper class called the Sustained. The Sustained are immortal, yet they can still be killed in combat. Most members of the Sustained gained their power through birth, but it is also possible to gain that status through the Jennerit gladiatorial arenas. Lifelong members of the Sustained tend to assert authority over the gladiators. They notoriously locked Caldarius in prison after he won a place amongst the elites by winning a gladiator tournament.
Heroes of the Jennnerit Imperium:
Last Light Consortium
The mostly-cybernetic LLC is the greatest economic power left in the universe, defined by a relentless pursuit of profit, no matter the cost. Once a constituent body of the United Peacekeeping Republics, the LLC abandoned the coalition when it became clear that principles and purpose did little to contribute to the bottom line. Owns and operates Minion Robotics, the largest weapons manufacturer still standing.
The Last Light Consortium (or L.L.C. for short) is a collection of corporations that makes their money off of war profiteering. They produce weapons and sell them to all of the other factions, regardless of any type of . They also control the minion service, Minion Robotics. Most members of the L.L.C. are robots, but there are a few remaining human members, most of whom are very wealthy.
Heroes of the Last Light Consortium:
A collection of civilizations banded together under the banner of mutual protection, freedom, and equality, the nomadic UPR – like the other factions – now find themselves in Solus with no home to call their own. Though recently crippled by the secession of one of their strongest constituents, the Last Light Consortium, the UPR remains nonetheless committed to their idealistic sense of justice.
The United Peacekeeping Republic or in short the Peacekeepers. They are the sworn protectors of Solus and doe this by enforcing a very heavy draconian law. They are battle hardened veterans with a sense of camaraderie. Based on the revealed characters so far, they seem to rely on firearms more than the other factions do. These are more your basic FPS (First Person Shooter) type of characters.
Heroes of the Peacekeepers:
The unaffiliated free peoples of Solus, colloquially known as the Rogues: misfits, renegades, and survivalists answering to no one. The Rogues make their home in the Detritus Rings, far from the squabbling of the other factions – but they too will have a part to play in determining the fate of the Last Star.
The Rogues is the faction that isn’t a faction. They have no type of official command, and they don’t really work together. The Rogues are made up of smugglers, pirates, and salvagers that are all just interested in own well being.
