The Legions are the military backbone of the Achaean Empire. Though sometimes referred to collectively as "the Legion," the term "legion" means a single unit of around 5,000 soldiers, usually stationed at a Legionary Fort.
For detailed information on the composition of the Legions, see the Achaean Empire article.
There are currently twenty-one legions in the Imperial military. Each legion has a number and a title, usually an animal. Some are listed below.
