The Dynasty is an empire that spans multiple nations on the Darkside of Taldain.

The Dynasty exerts a great deal of control over the entirety of Darkside, to the point that Dynastic is the first language of all Darksiders. The current ruler of the Dynasty, Emperor Skathan,[2] intentionally impedes the spread of technology and knowledge between provinces of the Dynasty in order to maintain dominance.[2] He also attempts to prevent trade and interaction with Dayside to hide the fact that there is notable traffic between the continents.[1]

The Dynasty is more technologically advanced than Dayside, as evidenced by their development of firearms.[2] Paired with their perceived social development, citizens of the Dynasty generally consider Daysiders to be uncivilized.[3]
