The Centarian Empire does not have a single armed force. It has a loose gathering of castes that want a break from the monotony of the Father’s Vow(To eat TIME). the complete and utter destruction of Time, as they know it. Which happens to be a father and his small child. Every crusade takes a vow/s which are the myriad goals they’re trying to accomplish. Many crusades have crashed and burned due to the obscurity and or obscenity of their “vows”, not that this worries the Alliance in anyway shape or form, who due to the immense size of the empire, have no qualms about taking notice of the failed crusade that, even failed to return the all clear, they’ll simply send more Censors and Drones into the “problem area” until either it warrants the father himself appearing in person as even he does enjoy breaks from chasing Time to come and burninate the countryside, waves of aquatic hurricanes and typhoons and a slippery wave of destruction.
