Myralian Navy, Summarized
The Myralian Navy is composed of the ships and units of the order who patrol, defend, and lay siege upon foreign threats within the gulf of Claudius and throughout the outer waters of the lands of the Dwytir, securing Myralian safety. Throughout its history, the Myralian Navy has been a prominent figure in securing the waters, and ensuring safe trade, primarily between the Republic and New Ascya. The Myralians, dating back to the Empire, have mostly been a land-based people who travel, trade, ad conquer primarily by foot, with the navy being highly overlooked. However, as of Demiphius Surato's rise to power after the second comet, he dedicated much more resources to the navy, naming it the primary protecting force from foreign influence throughout the entirety of the Dwytir.
In more ancient times during the reign of Darius, the navy as well as the trading fleets did not act as an independent force, and worked closer, almost in direct connection, with the Myralian Order of the Dragon. When astray from the shore, far out into the gulf and the greater seas, ships often went missing, or were destroyed by unknowing Ascyian forces. Today, Myralis has a much more centralized navy with its own direction and hierarchy, and acts in ordinance with New Ascya.
During the Red War, shortly before the Treaty of Aurcalia, under the ruling of a strongly united senate and Consul Demiphius Surato, the Myralian Navy expanded radically. Today, the navy is based primarily in the North, though during the Red War, Aurcalia served as the main navy base, due to the close proximity to the Caesons, and ease of passage through Anemos. After the war, the navy continued to expand, making Myralis a naval powerhouse.
For nearly a century after the Ascyian Occupation, the Gulf of Claudius had been a warzone of conflict. With a messy, uncentralized navy and uncoordinated trade fleets, the two aggressive nations fought at seas, with international trade failing at large, for both nations. Tensions eventually fell, and Navy presence became minimal, though international trade became almost obsolete, as Myralis became mostly self producing all goods. In response, the New Ascyian market crashed, and the nation fell severely ill, bringing forth the New Ascyian Trade Treaty, proposed by New Ascya, to ensure trade between Myralis and New Ascya, to support a booming market for both economies.
With a lack of Myralian Navy presence at Anemos in the years leading up to the defeat and death of Darius Flavius, the Caesons were able to sneak through, disguised as Myralian units. This lack of defense is what inevitably led to the war with Caesony, and prompted Consul Surato to fortify naval defenses.
