The History of LucriiEdit
When Dia first started playing in 2007, he was brought into the game by a few RL friends named Severus Knight, IrishOGre and SilentSpectre. He joined the alliance UNION on the orange sphere and was the diplomate to the alliance his friends were in, FFC. While in UNION, Dia went through a few roles, primarily the Minister of Recruitment and then Minister of War. When UNION merged into MOON, Dia and a few others were not happy with it, and left and formed the alliance PAIN. After a time, PAIN merged into Vanguard. It was at that time, Dia's real life military obligations hindered his playing time, so he entered an on/off period of inactivity. After the Karma war, Vanguard moved into the Mushroom Kingdom, and Dia went a long and just took up space.
In October 2010, Dia was once again approched by Sev and Silent Spectre, but this time it was for a slightly different reason. They asked for his help in setting up a new alliance on the black sphere. That alliance would later be known as ONYX. ONYX came into fruition under the protection of Sparta, but it's growth and developement were severily limited because the of the VE vs. NpO war.
Dia is currently one of ONYX's ruling Triumvrate and manages the Internal Affairs.
The end of ONYXEdit
Dia regrets to have to consider this, but he has been agreed to take part in discussions to fold ONYX into Sparta. He hopes that he can one day rekindle the idea that was ONYX
