The first, the last, the Emperors Guard.
The First Legion, also known as the Praetorian guard is unique in several ways. It was the first, formed from the amalgamated remnants of the original Emperors horde that unified the central provinces. They are also allowed to wear Imperial Purple rather than the usual Red tunics. This signifies that they are attached to the Emperor, as the Emperors robes and official colour is also purple.Their key duties are to guard Lindum
itself and a Century
accompanies the Emperor at all times no matter where he goes.
The First legion started as the model army for the new Empire, they were the first organised into units of Contubernia
and proved to be so effective it led to the founding of the rest of the Legions.
They participated in campaigns to unify the Central Provinces and start establishing the Empire as a safe haven, through their brutal battles they ensured that the Empire was founded on secure borders and internal patrols. They were the first to come up with the division of the Empire into administrative districts each lead by a Legion responsible for it's policing and security.
The Praetorian's main mission is to keep Lindum
secure at all times and then maintain the Emperors personal bodyguard.
