Royal Polantian Guard



The Royal Polantian Guard is an elite unit made up of no more than 10 Soldiers, chosen from the best of the best across the Polantian Army, Navy and Sheriffs. The unit opperates under the supervision of their Lord Commander, who has historically been the same person as the Chief Commander of Polantia's Army and Navy - only two people have held the title of Lord Commander since its creation in Rularia's 4th era, Prince Vrakdorium Mountbreak, and the current Lord Commander, Prince Ased Erleth.   Each solider upon appointment is knighted as a 'Preatorian', and as the title is extremely exclusive as to who is accepted into the unit, there have barely been 100 Preatorians knighted since the orders creation over 460 years ago.


Each Guard is outfitted with a set of armour - should they use it - from Plate armour to leather armour, and each has a shoulder cape worn over their non dominant hand. During the formation of this unit the cape was a silver silk to represent Queen Mifeath, however after the coronation of Queen Akonth the cape was changed to a gold silk, with copper filigree. The cape is affixed with a metallic chain, with link representative of each metallic Dragon and Dragonborn, the edge is lined with coloured thread representative of each Chromatic Dragon and Dragonborn, and a selection of gemstones lining the bottom to represent each Gemstone Dragon and Dragonborn.


The unit has no set weaponry, each member is given leave to use whatever weapon they prefer to use, from battleaxes and swords, to bows and rifles.


The RPG operate under the command of the Lord Commander, at present Lord Commander Prince Ased Erleth, as well as taking orders directly from the Polantian Monarch, Queen Akonth Erleth. When appointed to the Guard a new recruit or recruits are bound to another member, the pair training together, working together, defending Polantia together. Each pair answers only to themselves, the monarch and the Lord Commander, they can however also answer to the Royal Council only when put on special assignment under them.


Every member of the Royal Guard has undergone training through their service in the Army or the Sheriffs. However, in the preparation the perspective recruits are put through rigorous training and tests, pushing each one to the best of their abilities, bringing them up to their peak, and seeing if they go further or fall down. Only those who go further make it to appointment.



Recruitment for the Royal Polantian Guard is pulled from the ranks of the Sheriff's and Polantian Army and Navy. From new privates to decorated veterans, when selected for the recruitment pool each is treated equally. Normally an offer of recruitment is offered to a prospect after they have performed a great deed in service to Polantia, her people, or their fellow soldiers.    The recruits are pushed to their absolute limit, with tests and training across a wide range of subjects: combat, battle tactics and military expertise, Polantian and Rularian history, perception, endurance, strength and resilience. These tests are designed to find the peak of a recruit, push them right to breaking, and see who pushes further. Those who falter, fail or unimpressed are removed from the program and sent back to their position they came from originally. The unit was created to only accept the best, a mentality that is still held to this day.


Established in Rularia's 4th era, in the years following the War against the Dark Wing Empire and as Queen Mifeath wed Queen Mia'rora, Prince Vrakdorium Mountbreak set about establishing an elite unit of Polantia's greatest fighters to defend the Queen's, and Vrak's siblings. Vrak hand picked 10 perspective recruits from across Polantia's military and Sheriffs, testing them to see who would be worthy, and trusted to defend his family.   The Royal Polantian Guard was established as a legacy by Vrak, a man who was focused solely on the defence and protection of his family. The thought of leaving his family unprotected after his death was a thought that plagued him following the war, and thus he created this guard. A way of ensuring his families protection after his death.   Many critics of the Polantian Monarchy were outspoken when Vrak handed down his title as Lord Commander, as well as the Chief Commander title, down to his brother Prince Ased. The biggest criticism was the existence of nepotism in the monarchy, handing down such important titles to Ased just to keep control in the family. However, Ased was chosen after being subjected to the same rigorous tests and training that the other perspective Lord Commanders faced.   The title was passed down to Ased in the year 90 BDR, when Vrakdorium stepped back from his public titles to enjoy his old age and retirement now the Dragon princes and princesses were grown. Vrak held the position for 94 years, founding the units, and establishing the ethos of only accepting the best. When Ased was established as a Praetorian, he was the first Dragon to be knighted into the unit, and under him more Dragons began to be knighted, especially in the years following the Draconic Resurgence, when more Dragon's made their home in Polantia.
