The Nossian-Lifreian Civil War was a conflict with between the Lifréian Government and the Nossians secessionists, then known as Astrian secessionists within the Empire of Lifréia. The unrest began when a member of the so-called "Pius XI Society", the radical secessionist group, attacked the provincial government headquarters and the Lifreian Government declared martial law and assumed control of the Provincial Government.

Background[edit | edit source]

Carlo of Lamburg was appointed Governor of the Province of Astra by his brother, the Kanfre of Lifréia in early 2015. In an internal dispatch to the Imperial Household, the Kanfre Ivan VII, by that time known as Lopes I, referred to his brother as "the most trustworthy person I know". While in office, Carlo came in contact with secessionist factions in the Province. One of them, that operated under the anodyne facade name of "Pope Pius XI Society" took Carlo as one of its commanders. Another organization was referred to by the names of "the Blue Brigades" or "The Moderate Secessionists".

Carlo, after his entry into the organization and now an adherent of Astran independency, didn't agree with the violent ways disseminated by the Society and sought a more peaceful alternative, leaving for the "Blue Brigades". With the provincial elections of May of 2015, he managed to form a sizeable "secessionist" cabinet. From that moment, it seemed that all was going accordingly to the plans of the governor. Diplomatic talks with the lifreian government were to be held soon.

However, hostilities broke out after a member of the so-called "Pius XI Society", the radical secessionist group, attacked the provincial government headquarters. This triggered a swift response from the Lifreian Government who declared martial law and assumed control of the Provincial Government. Observing the volatile situation, Carlo armed the "Blue Brigades", waiting for the worst.
