The Shining Alliance was once the alliance of many clans, a huge world power. These were it's initial members, led at the time by Drinian.
Then, one day, everything changed. Clan Fate turned out to be entirely traitorous, and they turned on the Shining Clan on the first major battle. After witnessing this, the Triple Triad and Clan Law immediately withdrew, depleting the Alliance of almost half of it's manpower. The following clans were the only ones left, still led by Drinian.
Shortly after the takeover of Corneria, Clan Fienal dropped out the the Alliance. Then, the unthinkable happened. UD, in a rash move, turned on the Shining Alliance and attacked Corneria. They very nearly succeeded in capturing the capital at Pravoka, but the combined efforts of the Shining Clan and Clan Midas drove them away. Finally, the Alliance was left with a two clan composition and a ruined capital. Then, Drinian left, and Melissa assumed leadership of the clan.
Up until very recently, the Alliance has remained largely unchanged. Very recently, however, Salinas Xaruthan, the daughter of Melissa and Drinian Xaruthan, took over the leadership of the Alliance and declared war on Damien Chrystil, her uncle. After this declaration, Clan Fienal decided to realign themselves with the Shining Alliance.
