The Riasean Legion
It's purpose is to stop an invading force completely or slow it down until reinforcements can arrive. And it is outfitted accordingly with light weapons and armor for maximum mobility in the field. Originally the legion was called the First Legion of Celis and was established in 258 YOI making up the bulk of Celisian military force at the time of it's creation. In the year 269 YOI the legion had been dismantled and was little more than a glorified Centuria. During this time the legion and it's commander was ordered to protect and oversee the construction of the first Fort Aevum. The legion gained great renown during the First Battle of Aevis Run due to the valor and bravery shown by the legions soldiers and officers. They gained so much renown in fact that the regent at the time Daltrae Rias Malavre took notice of them. He ordered for the rearmament and construction of the First and for them to be upgraded with the best soldiers and equipment the kingdom could provide. Daltrae also decided that the legion would take his crest which was a burning phoenix and was to be known as the Riasean Legion after his middle name.

Since that time the Legion has become known for it's military excellence and valor in the field. Only the best of the kingdoms knights and soldiers can apply for the legion, and only so many of them get admittance. The Legion has just recently been given over to the command of Triumvir Robert Melhavre, who has let it be known that he plans on making more than a few changes to it's current layout.
