The Legion is a hostile faction that predominately occupies the Sonoran Desert sector. They play an important role in both the Sonoran Desert missions, and also play the role of the primary NPC force in some medium security missions.
OverviewEditThe majority of those in the Legion are former members of the Commonwealth Army, generally those who have been deemed undesirable or unfit for service. Some of these discharged soldiers routinely ignored or disobeyed orders, defiled or desecrated corpses, or tortured and killed unarmed prisoners of war. Its safe to say these Legionaries are truly the worst of the worst.
The Legion appears to be the main militant force of the Warlord, as both he and the Legion arrived in the Sonoran Desert during the same time frame. It is believed that some or all of the Commonwealth soldiers who escorted Nikolai Andreyev (aka the Warlord) became part of the organization, although that clearly doesn't explain the size of the Legion forces. It is likely that Commonwealth programs that continue to drop discharged soldiers in the Desert have only supplemented this organization.
The Legion most directly has a conflict with the desert dweller tribes of the Sonoran Desert. The Legion has already conquered the Kanar tribe under the command of the Warlord, and it is safe to assume they will attempt to annex other tribes as well.
Also, the Legion has a direct conflict with the junkers in Junk Town, who help supply and support Dome City and the many agents which call it home. Both locations are in danger of the Legion and any potential attack, which is why agents are frequently deployed to assist in defensive operations.
Strangely, the Legion appears to have no conflicts with the Recursive Colony.
The Legion primarily appears in the Sonoran Desert missions, almost always accompanied by Kanar and occasionally Elkan forces. The Legion also appears in three medium-security PvE missions, two of which appear in very similar forms not unlike the Sonoran Desert missions, Fly Free and Between Life and Death.
