Guard of the Incorruptible
Defenders of God's Chosen
I’ve had it with these deceitful cowards. They may have served us for centuries but the times, they are changing. I herby declare the old imperial guard disbanded. These loyal men who have alerted us of this treason will have the honour of hunting down the oathbreakers.
HistoryIn the year 1543 AA, a great rebellion against the rule of the emperor at the time, Hânsil Pentiwichen, had engulfed the land in the flames of war. The rebels hoped to end the struggle quickly by bribing the elite imperial bodyguard unit to side with them, and the treacherous guards were eager to join after hearing what the rebels could offer. Unfortunately for the traitors, there were a few honest lads among their ranks who had stayed true to the oaths they had given. These loyalists informed the emperor of the plot to assassinate him and helped in countering the threat.
Formation of the GuardEmperor Hânsil II graciously awarded those who had remained loyal and made them officers in charge of a new unit of elite soldiers, the Guard of the Incorruptible. The emperor handpicked the finest soldiers from his armies and transferred them over to his new bodyguard formation. To insure their loyalty, he offered excellent benefits to his men and to their families back home. This way he both kept them under control through generosity, but it also allowed him to know where their families were.
