The Star Forces

As the Abh are a species that live in space, its Star Forces (seikaigun, Labule) carries a fundamental importance in their society. It is not only a military force but also a political and administrative organization during peacetime. Another fact that testifies to its importance is that it is compulsory for the royalty (kouzoku, fasanzœrh) and the peerage (kizoku, simh) to serve in it for at least thirteen years, including three years in Star Forces schools (shuugikan, cénruc).

* These correspond to ” Imperial Fleet Admiral ” in the Flying Section.

Among them garéc (hishou-ka, The Flying Section) is the most important by far. In fact, as one can imagine, it was the Labule itself in early days and the other sections (called Special Sections) were created later as Labule became bigger and more complicated. Although both the royalty (fasanzœrh) and the peerage (simh) must serve in the Star Forces as mentioned above, the former must join the Flying Section, which is directly involved in combat. This is why I am in the Flying Section while Jinto can be in the Administration Section (shukei-ka, sazoïc). Yet we Ablïarsec tend to think it is our right, not duty, to be in the most dangerous part of the battlefield.
