Microsol is one of the major organizations in Tyrian, and the main villains of the game.
The largest company in the sector, Microsol is responsible for the manufacturing of a lot of the most advanced weapons, ships, technology and the terraforming of planets. Their main base of operations is on Ixmucane, though all of their major research is done on Gryphon Station. Microsol seeks to achieve a monopoly over energy resources and to eventually take over the sector. For this reason, they have turned their sights on the recently terraformed Tyrian, as the Gravitium ore existing there would allow them to make super-fast starships.
