Anhurian Legion

The Anhurian Legion is an organization self proclaimed to be a peacekeeping order of warriors. On the galactic scene this group is recognized anywhere from a mercenary group to a militaristic independent system. The legion non-politically is a self sufficient group of soldiers that abide by a strict code and act according to the basic principles laid out by it's first Marshal, Martin Banner.

  • Organization
  • Anhurian Code

After the Reaper War, the population of Anhur started to slowly decline. By the end of the first year after the war 100,000 of the reaper decimated 1,000,000 population had left. By the second year 200,000 more were gone. By 2190 there were only 200,000 people left on the planet most of whom had abandoned New Thebes and surrounding settlements for land untouched by the reapers destruction.

When the Attican negotiations took place Anhur relied heavily on the alliance and decided to remain within the Systems Alliance. From there Anhur enjoyed population growth which was extremely minimal. The planet was hence widely neglected in favor of colonies that were still within the realm of possibility for recovering.

By 2192 Anhur was seen as a lost cause by everyone outside of Anhur. New Thebes was ordered to be salvaged, however this was not well received by population whom at this point only stayed because it was land sacred to them that they and their ancestors had lived in for hundreds of years. Local populations joined in protest of the action much to the surprise of the Alliance that had offered the populace full transportation and means to settle in much richer colonies.

Things became worse when Ra'Hesh, a batarian said to essentially represent the planets batarian population (which by now was 30%) called for a referendum to separate from the Alliance. Many more political leaders agreed and joined in the referendum which was majorly accepted. The Systems Alliance had no interest in wasting resources to intervene in a lost cause and Anhur was declared independent which effectively put the final nail in the coffin of the decline of Anhur.

The economy of Anhur continued to fail and the population began to rapidly emigrate to other colonies leaving the remaining population, those who were there mostly only for the sake of tradition, to fix their own problems. Matters were made worse when the backwater planet was made a prospect of pirates who intended to operate out of the planet to raid Attican Systems. By the end of 2193, Anhur as it was known was nearly no more. At the beginning of 2194 Anhur was no point of interest for anyone more than a pirate save for one man. Martin Banner, a renowned and recently retired Alliance Marine Officer who had fought in the pivotal Battle of New Thebes years before saw potential for his own ambitions.

Banner's aspirations were born out of his resentment of neglected soldiers who were no longer needed in the galaxies downsized militaries after the war. He also thought that being the cycle to survive the reaper war brought an unmatched strength to the entire galaxy that no man woman or child of any race should ignore but instead but instead harness to become a permanently strong and resilient society. Banner by this time post war had already sensed old weaknesses returning, people reverting to pre war nature all underlined by the apparent neglect however unintentional toward former warriors of the Reaper war.

And so Banner began his operations on Anhur, he was already known by the locals for he and his unit's participation in the Battle of New Thebes and was able to buy several hundred acres of land which included the former Alliance base Imperator. From his new headquarters, Banner began bringing in old acquaintances from his previous days on the battlefield. From there he sought out thousands of the misfortunate veterans to once again live where they had a place whether it be in society in general or on the battlefield. The area that Banner purchased began becoming more developed by the day and Banner registered his own district on the planet for which he was the representative.

Sometime later in the year the pirates that had been preying on the planet struck New Thebes. They forced what inhabitants remained from the husk of a city and began to set up their operations in the city underground and canals. Immediately afterward pirates threatened to exterminate the population if they didn't evacuate the planet immediately. When a detachment of pirates entered Banners district, however, they were cut down by a large force of armed and armored veteran soldiers.

Banners district was the safest place and the population of Anhur flocked there for refuge. Many looked to Banner for aid and so Banner agreed to save Anhur from the threat and officially formed the Anhurian Legion comprised of former Alliance soldiers and local Batarian fighters. After organizing the legion, their first operation began, legionaries infiltrated grounded ships and proceeded to hijack half the pirate fleet to annihilate the other half with a suprise attack. Phase two would then begin as the bulk of the legion stormed the city with support from orbit. Within a week the pirate incursion was destroyed.

Word of the battle and the Anhurian Legion spread throughout the galaxy. Veteran Warriors flocked from every part of the galaxy tripling the size of the legion in a short time. Banner used his small fleet of ships and warriors with new purpose fighting with them in war zones all across the galaxy which grew the riches of the legion and the economy of Anhur. Eventually Anhurian warriors would outnumber regular citizens and so those citizens formed their own self governing caste called Hel'Kolan(Batarian for 'The Protected') who were contented to live in the rebuilt new Thebes working primarily as traders, Farmers, miners, etc. To some benefit of the Anhurian Legion.

By 2200 Anhur was primarily a world of warriors who fought in conflicts with the goal of ending them. Banner would continue to lead them till his death.

Diplomatic Relations
The coup in Gatol took the whole galaxy by surprise including the Anhurians. Anhurians dislike the regime as it uses its soldiers as tools for government benefit, the prime example being soldiers committing morally wrong acts. Anhur is neutral to the protectorate as they value freedom to choose their own path. Anhur has a close eye on the failing Alliance government, fearing that destabilization will cause strife and unneeded death. Anhurian high command is working toward a beneficial relationship with the Systems Alliance to keep the government afloat.

High Command
The Anhurian Legion is led by a military council known as the High Command. This consists of the leading General who takes the title of Marshal. He is supported by three other Generals who run their branches of the legion, the Warrior Corps, the  Space Fleet and the Intelligence Division.

Warrior Corps
Ran by a High Command General, The Warrior Corps is the main body of ground fighters within the legion. It is made up of ten Regiments which vary in size. Four of these Regiments are specialized in rapid response using Air Assault tactics. Another Two regiments are Heavy Combat units employing Mechanized tactics using APCs and Mechs usually supported in orbit by combat fleets. Two Regiments are fully dedicated to support and sustainment of combat units. One Regiment is a Specialized Commando Regiment that is split up to support other Regiments or executes its own missions. Finally, the Tenth Regiment handles basic training of recruits as well as specialized training, this regiment also contains the Biotics Battalion responsible for training Biotic Specialists and assigning them to units or additional training.

Space Fleet
The space fleet is led by an admiral with a position within the Legion High Command. The Space Fleet consists of three sections. The first section is the Combat Fleet which is led by the senior most admiral under the Fleet Admiral. It is an oversized fleet which can be split up between senior captains, Commodores, to be in multiple places at once. The second Section of the Space Fleet is the Transport Fleet led by the second most senior Admiral. It consists of a transport Flotilla and an escort Flotilla dedicated to the survival of the transport fleet at any cost due to the amount of life and resources the transport flotilla may hold. The third section of the fleet is Scout Flotilla which is led by a specially designated Commodore who, at times, answers directly to the High Command. This section consists of the Legions stealth and scout vehicles.

Intelligence Division
The Intelligence Division is led by a General who achieved their rank through service in the Intelligence Division. The Division is in charge of an intelligence agency which employs every tactic of recon and intelligence gathering. Everything from orbital stealth surveillance to infiltration be it with espionage or stealth. This division also handles counter intelligence and is highly secretive. Additionally it directly controls two units that are officially under the Space Fleet and Warrior Corps. From the Space Fleet, the Stealth Reconnaissance Vessels and from the Warrior Corps, the Echo Battalion of the Commando Regiment. Both are brought together as an agent from the Intelligence Division known as an Agent commands the stealth vessels which are garrisoned with commando companies from Echo Battalion.

Justice Council
A council of senior officers was put in place to handle internal criminal affairs and breaking of the Warrior Code. Their job is to manage an internal police and investigations force as well as provide trials for cases above an officer's authority.

Anhurian Code
Martin Banner at the very beginning of forming the legion implemented a code of conduct for all warriors of the Legion. This code outlined the rule of law and a clear set of morals for his soldiers. Many small details and additions were made but the main tenets generally make things clear.

1. A warrior follows the basic code of morals that everyone of every faith and creed can embrace. (Do not murder, rape, steal etc.)

2. A warrior does not fight a battle that does not need to be fought. Warriors fight to end injustice and wrongdoings and to restore peace and/or stability.

3. A warrior is never above foreign law, customs or culture while within said foreigners land unless they are declared or are blatantly immoral. (A popular yet unofficial retelling of this tenet is as follows 'When in Rome do as the Romans, unless they try to rape and murder you.')

4. The life of the defenseless depends on the life or death of a warrior. Always consider what life is worth saving in the short term when more can be saved in the long term.

5. A warrior lives his life by honor and sacrifice and survives by instinct and knowledge. There is always a fine line between cowardice and falling back, between a brave action and a stupid one. A good warrior always knows the difference.

6. A warrior uses his strengths and respects his weaknesses.

7. A warrior has every right to disobey immoral and unlawful orders.

8. A warrior is obligated to follow moral and lawful orders.

9. A warrior against odds will do his best to evade capture. A captured warrior will make all efforts to become not so.

10. A warrior, fights for his brothers in arms and will never abandon them under any circumstance.
