Faction Name: Enforcing Deterrent to Military On Earth / "Endymion"
Capital: Nova Solyma, Luna

Population: 180 million, including Lunar Colonies

An informal organization formed on March 18th of Over Era 102 by the devastated Lunar Kingdom of Everglory under Queen Selene III, and the Reformist arm of the Directory Space Fleet led by Director Chethan Sullivan at the signing of the Treaty of Janus. Compared to the ranks of more militant organizations, Endymiom is made up entirely of volunteers, and focuses its energies primarily on halting the flames of war that tear through the Earth Sphere, as well as on seeking out and destroying the dark powers that pull the strings behind the conflict.
While Queen Selene retains the title of monarch, her power and authority has been considerably diminished, and a more republic-like approach has slowly begun to take hold on the Moon. A council of higher-ups meets to make important decisions, and taskforces have considerable independence and authority compared to traditional regiments, often dispatched with a specific mission in mind than on any patrol. Without access to much of the resources once available to them from the Directory due to the war situation, soliciting - and responding to - private sponsors and philanthropists to continue funding the war effort has become commonplace, causing some to complain that Endymion listens more to those who write its checks than those supposed to be in charge.
The integration of the two forces has not been wholly without incident, especially among those who once enjoyed supreme privilege and control among the Lunar elite, but thus far the alliance seems to be holding firm, determined to stop the impending annihilation of the human race by whatever means it can rally.
