The Emperor's Legion

TEL Emblem

"The Empire has fallen yet the Legion lives on. They still stand by their Emperor and won't waver. Why? Because I have earned the respect of everyone. We are an army of veterans and elites that have been through the worst the galaxy has ever thrown at us. Some have called us over-glorified mercenaries, but we don't work for money. We work and the only reward we want is the love of the people and a better life for allies and the people of the Empire."
- Emperor Isaiah Xaimoungkhoun

Purpose of Unit: Search and Destroy, Sabotage, Intelligence, Humanitarian Efforts


The Emperor's Legion was formed in the last couple decades of Welhan's reign. Originally it was to be Welhan's personal bodyguards, but it became more like a separate branch of the armed forces. The rumor is that IX used the unit to force Welhan out of power, but the rumors are unconfirmed by those outside the Legion and avoided by those within.

Just before the colonization of Earth, however, the Legion began to fall in in its importance. While its members were still recognized as heroes, their military operations ceased. However, two months after arriving on Earth, the Legion got at least a smaller combat role in the Acronos Campaign. Though it was a victory, it was merely a skirmish than any real combat. Most of the Legion at the time never fought in it anyway.

Before IX was elected President, the almost war between the colony and the Kingdoms of Cal put the TEL on standby for deployment. It never flared up, however, and instead the TEL stood down once again.

A couple months later, when the Third Federation War began, most of the 40 soldiers of the Legion were deployed in Andromeda. Only a handful stayed behind such as Ambassador Nakhi Fhulsar Welhan and Tamarynn Rio. During the fight, they were deployed on all the major battlefields of the war.

As with the AGF, the finest hour of the TEL was the Invasion of Talon. Afterward, some began to be brought back to Haroma or sent back to Earth. When the war ended, and after the Anean Civil War, all remaining TEL officers were brought back to Earth and open recruitment began for the Republic and for the Republic's allies.

With the return of the Empire, and Tod becoming Empress, IX resigned from position of Commandant and put Tod in that place.



The Emperor's Legion has the most rigorous training in the Republic. All recruits are put through 4 months of training. Unlike the NGDF training, the TEL training has an approximately 20% mortality rate. The former AGF only managed to get to ~5% mortality.

During the four months, recruits learn various techniques that have made the TEL among the most elite soldiers in the galaxy. In addition, there is weapons training with every weapon in the arsenal plus Earth made weapons.

There is a pilot training course (no long taught by IX due to loss of pilot's license) as well since at any moment during a battle a TEL soldier may be needed to go from an infantry role to an air role.


With the open recruitment of the Legion, IX has allowed the armed forces of other nations to train alongside the TEL. However, they are required to go through a week of the same physical training that those looking to become members endure. Unlike the actual soldiers, IX doesn't allow any of them to die. They are just put into the on base hospital and remain there until the end of their unit's training.

Upon arrival on the island, those that arrive are required to change into TEL fatigues and carry the 100 pound pack of standard equipment with them the 25 miles from the AFB to the training base. Then they get one hour of sleep before being forced awake along with the other TEL recruits.

Because it's IX's unit and his country, IX retains the right to discipline both his own and foreign soldiers once they sign up for it, but only when they deserve it. He can, however, smack them around whenever he wants.
