Composition Edit

Their members were selected from the rank of the Emerald Magistrates, Imperial Legions, and Clan magistrates throughout the Empire. These individuals were chosen for their virtuous nature and their degree of skill. [1]

Station Edit

The Legion was most frequently called upon to serve as the sword arm of the Seppun magistrates, as the vast majority of Seppun guardsman. They were committed to duties protecting Imperial assets throughout the land and could not be easily marshaled on short notice. [1]

History Edit
