The Albion were the most advanced race of their time, and their supersoldiers were the best of the best. The Peloran. The Arnam. And the others like them. They were ingenious tinkerers in the genetic arts, but all their tricks could not save them in the end. Most histories say that the Albion and the Ennead destroyed themselves. That is partially correct, and partially wrong. The Albion died first you see. There were not enough Peloran or their cousins in all the galaxy to save the Albion when the Ennead moved to Total War and began destroying entire planets and star systems. But the Albion did not die alone. When it became clear they could not win, the Albion gave a single order to their legions of supersoldiers. “Kill the Ennead.”
