What People think of YouThe 43rd Legion is considered a stain upon everything Vatian and what the Vatian Empire stands for. The only reason the legion exists is that the empire needed someone to do the things that no one else would do and that's just that. What better way than to use Corrupitque who deserved to be punished for the crimes of their bloodline that committed acts that brought dishonor to their family and their people
To serve the empire in the hope of receive redemption for the crimes of their ancestors.
