The Rakani Civil War was a war between the Rhizon Collective and a splinter collective accidentally created on the Rhizon colony of Rhizon Rakani. Miscalculations by the Rhizon mother root resulted in two Mother Roots being seeded on the planet. When the second root matured, the first root saw the second as a threat, and being loyal to the Rhizon Collective, immediately attacked. Both mother roots were equally capable, but since the first was aided by the rest of the Collective being spawned on the homeworld, the second Rakani root was overwhelmed, but not without the loss of hundreds of thousands of Rhizon constructs. To stop senseless conflict between the Rhizon, the Mother Root decided there would only be one Mother Root present on any given colony world.
