Burning Suns Wikia

The Daybreak War was an ancient conflict fought between the Guardian race and a species described only as arachnids. The War is notable for the first recorded appearance of the faction known as the Fraternity, more commonly referred to as the Ronins.


The Guardians have never released detailed records of the conflict, which occurred many tens of millennia before their first contact with any other sentient race. The arachnids, hatched from an asteroid belt in the outer reaches of Aluxi, swarmed across the system destroying everything in their path until being thrown back decisively by the Guardian military. The reason for the arachnid advance has never been verified, since their presence in the asteroid belt had been known to the Guardians for centuries. However, in the aftermath, the Ronins assembled, traveled to the asteroid belt, and eradicated all traces of the arachnid infestation, securing their home system against any further attack.

Key event(s)

The arachnid species were rendered extinct, and the threat to Aluxi was thereby contained.
