The Legion was an army of the light during the Great War. The Legion was comprised the most elite soldiers that the west had to offer and they had scored many victories during the Great war.
It was often their ability to fulfill the most dangerous missions and for being the best of the best that The Legion was always finding itself where the fighting would be ugliest.
Some of The Legion's notable victories were: lifting the siege of Madrigal, retrieving the Total Codex from the ruins of Covenant, holding the pass of Bagrada against The Deceiver, rescuing Alric from captivity in the east, finding The watchers arm, shattering the tain after being imprisoned by Souldblighter, liberating Myrgard from the Ghols (Only the dwarves did at any rate.) and slaying The Watcher using his own arm.
The Legion would soon make the ultimate scarifice during the Great War when they were ordered to attack Balor's fortress at Rhi'anon. thier final orders was to distract Balor's forces in a suicidal feint in order to give Alric and his hand picked force time to kill Balor. The Legion was eventually slain to the last just as Alric succeeded in killing Balor and sending the severed head of the Leveller to the Great Devoid with the surviving members of the legion. Fewer then thirty survived Rhi'anon.
Their comrades' sacrifice was not in vain for Balor's head was succesfully thrown into the Great Devoid by the survivors. The few that survived then limped back home.
After the armies of the dark collapsed and the fallen lords were swallowed up by history, the west had been restored and, in honour of The Legion's scarifice and courage, the armies of the west were forever known as Legions.
The Legion was refounded before the war against Soulblighter and, like their predecesors, they would prove their worth against the odds.
