    The Shi`ar race starts at about 1200 years age (Earth Time) they were nearly extinct by the alien race called the Mephistoids. They worship the "Married Gods" Sharra and K`ythri. They are the cousin race to the Spartoi.

    They are ruled by an Emperor (the Majestor) or Empress (Majestrix) who command an military might and an intergalactic multi-alien race space team dubbed The Imperial Guard. The capital planet of the Empire is Chandilar.

    D'Ken was Majestor when the Shi'ar first came into contact with Earth. He would eventually go into a coma while trying to gain power from the M’Kraan Crystal.

    D'Ken's sister Lilandra would gain control of the empire, but her sister Deathbird would overthrow her and reign control of the empire for a time. Unlike her brother and sister, Lilandra rules with a more peaceful galactic stance. When D'Ken awoke from his coma, a civil war would break out, led by those who wanted their strong expansionist rule back.

    Lilandra would go into exile but D'Ken's rule would be short lived when he would offer a joint rule with Vulcan. Vulcan killed D'Ken and became Majestor.
