The Legion of Dread is the ultimate fighting unit. Consisting of 5,000 elite troops wearing powered armour and carrying fusion rifles and personal energy shields, the Legion of Dread has been instrumental in the conquest of more than a thousand planets.
The Legion of Dread was founded in 2545 A.D. by Lord Lei'land Kar, the leader of Clan Death, who needed a loyal bodyguard. To this day only members of Clan Death can become Legionnaires of Dread. The Legion is supported by Clan Death and remain loyal to the clan rather than the Empire. As such the Legion is the personal army of Clan Death's Leader. The distinctive black armour of the Legion is feared and hated throughout the known galaxy.
