The First Order, also known as the Order, True Empire, Hidden Empire and New Order, was a splinter faction of the Imperial Remnant that operated following the Battle of Endor. Born out of Imperials who sought to restore the Galactic Empire to it's former self, the First Order began conflicts with the New Republic following the Galactic Civil War. After the invasion by the Yuuzhan Vong, the First Order reemerged to overthrow the Republic, now the Galactic Alliance. However, the Alliance and mainline Imperial Remnant fought back against the Order and defeated them. In spite of being defeated, the First Order survived, abliet weakened. The Order fled even further into their territories in Wild Space, taking over the government on Emijar, creating the Emijar Kingdom.
