In Settled Systems, the area of space where the Starfield story takes place, there is no unified authority. Military, economic, religious and political influence is divided among several major factions and many smaller organizations.
Major Factions in Starfield include United Colonies, Free Star Collective, Ryujin Industries and Crimson Fleet. Each of them has its own goals and ideologies, and they clash in conflicts over influence, resources and wealth.

Ryujin Industries was founded by Rei D'Carys and Itaru Saito in 2307. D'Carys had a dream of applying her vast knowledge as a biotech engineer to the improvement of everyday life, and when she met the business minded Itaru Saito, it wasn't long until Ryujin Industries was formed.
Ryujin's first product was based on D'Cary's neurological research and would prove to be a major breakthrough in technology: the neuroamp. Neuroamps would propel Ryujin to the top of the tech industry and solidify their position as a major contender for years to come.
It wasn't long before Ryujin Industries began to look to other major forays into the tech world. In 2310, Taiyo Astroneering joined the fold and continues to be a leader in spacecraft engineering and design today.
With a growing business, D'Carys and Saito worked with Benjamin Bayu to build the massive Ryujin Tower. The incredible effort would showcase the strong relationship between Ryujin Industries and the city of Neon: Ryujin Industries adding to Neon's prestige as something more than just a "pleasure city," and Neon being an attractive bonus to working at Ryujin.
Over time, Ryujin Industries would also incorporate Arboron, DRONE, and Tranquilitea into their family. These subsidiaries would further strengthen Ryujin as a formidable competitor and expand their reach into different aspects of life.
Today, Ryujin continues to be an industry leader with eyes always pointed toward the future.
