“Strength Through Freedom”
Sometimes, enough is enough. Sometimes, you grow tired of constantly jumping between organizations, watching as they expand faster than they’re prepared for and slowly lost control of their members. Tired of being forced into roles that don’t suit you, with no room for negotiation. Tired of being thrown to the side just because your availability conflicts with your Commander’s strict and unbending schedules.
For us, there was one clear course of action: to break away and create an organization of our own, where management can be planned in advance, where your role can be whatever you choose, and where concessions can always be made for those with conflicting schedules. An organization where freedom and individuality would be the building blocks for a group that can enjoy their work, proving that maturity and professionalism can be achieved without the cost of your personality.
The Arvid Protectorate Navy was founded on the belief that everyone should be free to be themselves, and we’ll oppose any pirate who thinks they can take that freedom away.
In an effort to make themselves known, The Arvid Protectorate Navy reached out to a number of other small organizations. These allies provided even more contacts, and soon we found ourselves with scores of new friends around the ‘verse. Eventually, we joined up with a group of others who shared our goals and opinions; an alliance of like-minded organizations who agreed that where one could not combat a threat individually, we would do so together.
Though attempts were made to maintain the alliance we pulled away from it as we believed they no longer followed what they originally set out to do. Though our personal allies remain we vowed to increase our activity in the galaxy to ensure everyone can fly safely and not have to worry about pirates or Vanduuls.
With both allies and members growing by the day, we now look to the future.
Following your dreams is not an easy road; there will always be times when you want to throw in the towel and call it quits, maybe joining up with a smaller organization for comfort or joining with a larger one for the security. As for us, our organization’s task is to help bring order to lawless space, to find those who would bring harm to others at a drop of a hat, to protect those who cannot protect themselves. We may be small for now, but by keeping our eyes looking out at the distant horizon and staying true to ourselves, we can help bring about a brighter tomorrow.
