Burning Suns Wikia

Massively powerful and capable of direct energy manipulation, the Stalker's armed forces are an offshoot of the Templar military. Even more belligerent than their brethren, they are considered one of the most devastatingly effective combat forces the galaxy has ever known.


The Stalkers seceded from the Templar Hegemony following the conclusion of the Hundred-Years War. The majority of those who broke away were members of the military, providing the isolationists with ready-made combat resources.

Military doctrine

As with their parent race, shock and awe are watchwords. Thanks to their advanced abilities with energy manipulation, the Stalkers outgun their enemies on a massive scale, even when seemingly outnumbered. They are also disinclined to accept surrender or prisoners, preferring to annihilate any enemy completely. Quarter is never given. Nor is it ever asked.

Navy branches

Stalker Fleets
The Stalker's fleets are maintained as a standing force, although not all of them are necessarily manned. The fleets charged with system defence tend to be controlled by remote interaction from ground-based command centres. Two example compositions are given here - a combat-oriented fleet and a defence-oriented one.
Fleets Titan Dreadnought Battlecruisers Raider wings
Victory 1 per Fleet 4 per Section 8 per Contingent 2 per Detachment
Bulwark 2 per Section 4 per Contingent 1 per Detachment

Navy ranks

Stalkers do not place much stock in hierarchies, and with each vessel generally falling under control of less than ten individuals, there is no real need for a complex rank structure.
