The Cragmite Empire was an Empire formed by the Cragmites from their capital planet and homeworld of Reepor. They quickly took over most of the Polaris galaxy. The Lombaxes opposed the Cragmite Empire and fought against them in the Great War. The Lombaxes used the Lombax Secret to save the galaxy and send the Cragmites to dimension X2-49. One surviving Cragmite was raised by the Lombaxes and, upon later discovering his origins, he formed his own Empire and returned the Cragmites.
The Cragmite's will to destroy all who opposed them resulted in the formation of the Cragmite Empire.
Opposition to the Cragmite rule resulted in the start of the Great War. During the war, the Cragmites set a large capitol on their homeworld of Reepor and quickly took over Polaris using a large, unstoppable army. All of Polaris regarded the Cragmites as the most unpleasant beings in the history of the galaxy, rivaled in this category only by the Kerchu. It was only when the Lombax race took the leadership role of the resistance that Polaris was dawned by hope. Deeming the Cragmite Empire's rule over their galaxy unacceptable, the Lombaxes shed fear from the equation of the war and became the only independent force able to challenge the Cragmites.
The Lombaxes were the only race able to oppose them and fight on even terms. The two races became eternal nemeses and fought for long periods of time. Much of the time both were on equal terms that seemed impossible to break. A Lombax leader helped propose and create a device that could be used to transport the entire race to another dimension. This device, known as the Dimensionator, was kept a secret and known to all not privy to the Lombax history as the "Lombax Secret". With the powerful machine, the entire Cragmite race was sent to the dimension X2-49, a dying star approximately 8.2 kilocubits from any life form, thus ending the Cragmite rule over Polaris.
Percival Tachyon, the last Cragmite in Polaris, was not sent with his species to another dimension. He was raised by the Lombaxes but eventually discovered his origins and declared himself to be the savior of his race, taking the title of Crowned Prince and Emperor. In this position, he assembled an army of Drophyds to form his own Empire and made an Imperial Army. Tachyon later brought back the rest of the Cragmites, fully resurrecting the Cragmite Empire as his destructive force, and only Ratchet and Clank were able to oppose him.
