The Great Exodus
The Bentusi fled the galaxy during the brief conflict between Kiith Somtaaw and the Beast virus, and the last ship they left in the galaxy, the Harbourship of Bentus was destroyed. Without the Bentusi to guide them, the younger races of the galaxy have begun to isolate themselves from each other, and the Galactic Council has had little progress attempting to improve the situation. With Sajuuk and the eye of Aarran under Hiigaran control, the Hiigarans have quickly become one of the strongest superpowers in the galaxy and act as a major contribute to the Galactic Council's peacekeeping forces.
Though saddened by the dissapearance of the Bentusi, who helped to reclaim their homeworld, The Hiigarans belive that one day the great Bentusi would return to the galaxy and usher in a new era of prosperity.
The Return of the Pariah
Though unknown to the younger races, the Beast did not evolve naturally. It is a living weapon created to destroy the Bentusi by an ancient and mysterious enemy. After the final battle against Makaan's forces to save Hiigara, Hiigaran researchers began to examine the remains of the planet-killer ships utilized by the Vaygr invaders. The planet-killers were unlike any design ever seen by the Hiigarans but the technology resembled closely that of the Bentusi. Some leaders in the Hiigaran Daimid have even begun to wonder if the planet-killer weapons were granted to Makaan by another advanced race directing the Vaygr behind the scenes. Another disturbing revelation is the sighting of similar craft on a smaller scale attacking mining colonies on the edge of Taiidan Republic space, vanishing without a trace when Taiidan military forces arrive at the scene.

"All heavy cruisers move in and attempt to draw enemy fire away from the planet's surface."
"Admiral, we are getting a response from the lead enemy ship"
"Insects... we are the Tiamat... known to the Bentusi as pariah... but now they are the outcasts..sent into exile.. and now no one shall stand in our way this time"
-The Arth'an Tel flagship makes first contact with the Pariah
