- "Forces loyal to the old Emperor lurk in the new bandit kingdoms, waiting for their chance to strike back.." — Somtaaw Fleet Briefing
The Taiidan Imperialist Faction had no real ruling body, but rather was a loose organization of the old Taiidan Empire's surviving commanders and system's that remained loyal to their fallen Emperor. They called themselves "Loyalists", and where responsible for harassing Hiigaran trade ships, as well as several direct assaults on Hiigara itself. Most of their attacks peaked around 15 AHL.
The Taiidan Imperialist used their hidden, post-imperial bases in an attempt to ruin the newly created Taiidan Republic, and to take revenge on the Hiigarans for the death of their previous Emperor, Riesstiu IV the Second. The Imperialist tried twice before 15 AHL to reunite several planetary governments created after the fall of their Empire. In addition, the Loyalists made several attempts to breach Hiigara's security zone, all of them were not successful.
During the Vaygr War, the remaining Taiidan continued to exist in far nord-est fringe of the Galaxy only a mere shadow of its former power.
