Ex Gladio Victoria
[Victory through the Sword]
The Aurodium Legion is an organized contingent of blasters-for-hire who patrol the Farlax Sector and deem themselves outside the bounds of normal society. Their services can be hired for a price and they can be trusted to fulfill their contract, but one should not count on their loyalty down the road if it is not in their interest.
In a galaxy torn asunder by Civil War, there are many independent mercenary units whose services are available for hire. Independent corporations, planetary governments and fabulously wealthy private citizens often hire mercenary units for self-defense, and in some cases, to settle long-running disputes. Thought to be unwilling to spread its resources too thin, the Aurodium Legion takes a different approach – offering its services solely to existing governments that are able to afford their lavish retainer fee.
Of necessity, the Legion only takes part in legal missions, such as defense from pirates and to suppress rebellion on a world. However, several of its members may privately undertake missions that skirt the limits of planetary laws.
Search, Locate, and Annihilate Missions (SLAMs)
The Aurodium Legion can undertake planetary mission involving the elimination of all assets of production, including factories, arable land, mines, fisheries, droids, and sapient beings. They will also eliminate – free of charge – any witnesses that may have seen prosecutable atrocities being committed.
Legionnaires are typically deployed for ground assault from orbit by large dropships. They have sufficient strength to assault one major or several lesser points of resistance on a planet.
Within the limits of its resources, the Aurodium Legion has gained an impeccable record for economic development. Their ability to quickly organize and inject capital into a planetary economy is renowned as one of the most efficient ways of taking control of planets from tyrannical rulers. Their past indiscretions in this arena seem to have given them a reputation for total ruthlessness; however, those same indiscretions put their services at the top of the list to be hired to carry out any project of this magnitude.
Every mercenary wants to be remembered. A mercenary doesn't retire gracefully. There's no such thing as an Old Mercs Home either. What a real mercenary wants is to go out... in a blaze of glory.
