Legion des Damnes, or just Les Damnes (as some prefer to call them) are a legion of criminals, united for one primary goal: gaining profit by almost any means necessary. They are the most powerful Brigands, controlling and influencing every Brigand Space.
The Legion itself consists of people with different origins. Freelancers, Traders, Ex-Navy, all united under the same flag, making Gallia and the upper part of Sirius unsafe.
History of the Legion des Damnes
The former members of the Royal Navy group Legion des Damnes successfully escaped the clutches of the GRN, but suffered heavy losses in doing so. A once proud hundred thousand men and women was whittled down to two thousand in a single day.
Struggling to escape with what they had left, the Legionnaires regrouped deep inside the Nievre asteroid field, with brave pilots fighting swarms of GRN ships, to buy the time needed for the Grande Guillotine, to escape.
With few options, and the GRN closing in on them quickly, due to damage caused to the Guillotines engines, the Legionnaires set a course for Montbard base, their only salvation. Intending to assault and capture the base, despite the impossibility of the task with their weakened forces.
However, the Legionnaires did not send in an all out reckless assault. Tactics and skill were in their blood, and because of that, there remained a slim hope that they would survive the coming battle.
In the end, unforeseen circumstances intervened. Certain Brigand elements aboard the base, who were assisting in the co-ordination of the defence, enacted a plan that would, if successful, allow both sides to survive against the GRN fleet coming in to wipe out the remains of the legion forces.
The plan was successful. Depending on your view of successful. Montbard still stands, despite heavy damage. The Legionnaires survived, despite heavy losses. And the Royalist fleet was tricked into turning back, preventing the complete destruction of either sides forces.
However, there were unexpected effects of these facts. The Legion changed. It still stands strong, but now, the surviving Legionnaires fly more for themselves than for a common goal. They still understand teamwork, and the bonds they forged together so long on the battlefield.
But now they have turned to a life of crime. Won over by the destruction of their lives, and their time on Epernay with the Brigands instead of fighting for the crown, they steal for themselves. Instead of boasting about their skills as pilots and warriors, they instead brag about their latest spoils.
They themselves have become Brigands. United, as other small gangs of Brigands are, by their lifetime of working together, they steal and smuggle as one, fighting for the best spoils from a lonely tradesman, or fighting for dominance over each other.
But they have survived. Now, they started every kind of illicit business - to regain their once lost proud power. The first months were hard, as there was no clear Brigang group with enough influence to keep peace amongst them.
Chaos, everywhere. Gang wars. Everyone wanted to be the best, everyone wanted to "rule" the Brigands. There were no rules, the winner was the one who killed all the others.
Amongst those groups, the Legion has risen, slowly but surely. Deals with Sirian factions and clever tactics brought the Legion's enemies to their knees, making it the most powerful Brigand force. It all ended when the Legion's Lord, the well-known Enzo du Sable, defeated the last hostile gang boss.
Since then, the Legion has steadily risen, having more power and influence over Gallia, aswell as the edges of Sirian space, with each passing day. The Legion has become a symbol of proudness for it's allies, and a symbol of terror for it's enemies. They are coming to take what they want...
They are the Legion des Damnes.
- Higher influence over Gallia and Sirius
- Smuggling, pirating, deals, extortion
- Finding Sirian allies and partners and expanding into Sirius
- Pure and simple: Le Profit
Enzo du Sable, the leader of the group, follows one simple rule: “Every man and woman has to be valued by what he/she can do for a certain purpose, no matter what origins or beliefs he/she has.” That attitude is common among the Brigands.
This is why people of many origins form the gang. Some may seek refuge, others may look for adventures. Many people are attracted by the romantic aura surrounding the Brigands in general. And many of them come because they want to make money easily. The gang accepts all, if they’re have what it takes to get our job done.
The Ways of a Legionnaire
- "You're on your own"
Don't expect anyone to hold his hand in the fire for you. We stand together, but that does not mean we have to take on the problems of one another. Don't expect anyone to sacrifice himself for you.
- "Keep what you kill"
Hunt down your prey, loot from its remains, and keep it, if you were the lone hunter. If not, share. And don't forget to give the Legion its rightful share for keeping you. (10%)
- "Your past does not matter"
Once you become a Brigand, your past does not matter. You are here to pursue your goals, whatever they are. You are here amongst other like you, either volunatarily or forced....
- "Your life is your most worthful possession"
Don't risk your life for anyone, or anything. If you are overwhelmed by enemies, you can run. As Brigand, you don't have to die for a worthless belief, if it is not your own.
- "Take from the rich or poor and give to yourself, or the poor"
Take l'argent from anyone you want and do whatever you want with it. We don't have to be les Robin Hoods of Gallia.
