Three factions—Cybran, Illuminate, and United Earth Federation (UEF)—control the Supreme Commander 2 galaxy. Cybran traces its beginnings far back into Earth Empire history. In 2592, Doctor Gustaf Brackman, an unmatched genius in cybernetics, successfully "twined" the first human/AI pair, creating a symbiont.

The Earth Empire effectively enslaved the symbionts, utilizing their superior AI-assisted thinking and ability to perform complex processes quickly and efficiently, to bolster their empire.

In response, Dr. Brackman formed the Cybran Nation with a large complement of his symbiont "children," and they thrived. Dr. Brackman petitioned the newly created UEF to free the rest of the Symbionts; they refused and sent an occupying force. It was met with resistance by the Cybran Nation, and the fight for symbiont freedom began.
