The Republic of the Idimoni [EOI]
Times of old
The times of old would be hard, as be it on any other. They held where time can shift and change in mere moments to one. Divided in evolution they where weak, they fought amongst themselves like fools of no bigger picture. Clashes of fire and death would be all left in wake. Small towns thrived in the chaos to form the first cities. They survived by moving below ground into large cavers that lied underneath. They held crystalline roofs that allowed crops to grow and for life to grow.
Many come and go in to the out, the surface always being in war knew no peace. But a time to unify the planet came one day, when a single Idimoni took control. He was the strongest of the underground, and he wanted a new society to be born. One without the brutal war of a warrior race. Codes of honor installed to stop mindless violence, warriors of rank to make it a dream. Wars clashed for what felt ages as blood was shed across the planet. In the end the unification came under a success, and the planet was unified under a single rule. He wanted for the bloodshed to finally be over, but he didn't want his people to be seen as weak. A standing military is installed to keep order and to protect all while people can forget mostly of violence and find peace.
Life is fine in the world, colonization finally begins with the grand fleet. Two more planets becoming colonies of people. The main planet of 'Idimonia' is divided into ten provinces, with each having a leader and governing council, with the supreme leader having final say over all. The colonies are similar in this way both being a single province with the same form of governing body.
Appearance: They most commonly have a form of horn on their heads, and take few forms. Their humanoid form looks almost the same to an average human reaching heights of 4'-6' at most common. The Demon form that only Males can transition into allow for stronger strength and can be in heights of 8'-20'+ depending on how powerful they are.
Abilities: They are a magic using race that can hold a different set of abilities with most common being elemental manipulation. They are capable of using telepathic skills in order to help move information. Magic is strongest when in Humanoid form, being the most powerful state for a more magical user. They also can use amplification spells that allow for them to amplify their vehicles or allies in battle to make them more effective. The demon form holds strong resistance and strength in exchange of loss of the magic skill. Decently long life spans.
Weaknesses: The demon forms are unable of using magic at the most being able to use the elemental magic. The change from humanoid to demon form marks them at most vulnerable being able to die with ease. The changing speed is quite slow leaving them vulnerable, making changing mid combat a very very bad idea. The humanoid form are usually very weak in melee combat and are easy to kill. Different spells require different times to be able to be utilized making powerful spells take longer to execute leaving gaps in attacks. Opposite elements are key counters for example if one fights with fire the counter to them is water. Humanoid form are equal to humans in strength and capabilities.

Politics and policy:
They are a more peace drove species, but don't agree with inter species relations. The ruler is a single power with a ruling council, who then each have their own council. There is a single supreme leader with a spouse who rule with full control, down the chain leads to 12 governors you could call them, who each run a province. The main planet having 10 and the colonies each having 1. Each governor having then himself of elected council men chosen by the population of the province. They are fine with other species interacting but the only thing forbidden of their culture is inter species relationships.

All FTL-capable spacecraft are legally required to be equipped with a Lumicom communications array. Short-range communications are performed using conventional radio waves. Long-range communications are performed using tachyons, these tachyons travel at estimated speeds of 50c - 55c. eliminating noticeable delays at distances shorter than 6 LY.

Being mostly made up of males, they are not a diverse species when it comes to jobs leaving much fighting to the male gender. While rare it is normal to see a female among the ranks. But being mostly male allows for larger troop numbers.
The technology used by the is very primitive compared to many empires, using magic in order to amplify their weapon abilities and vehicles capabilities.
