Army of Phlan
The Army is a brand new organization of Phlan, formed from what once
was the mercenary company Raegarís Legionaries and the various militias
of religious organizations and the city, with the addition of Prince
Sellentís cavalry. Led by the Legionís founder, General Maxim Raegar,
the Armyís officer cadre is almost entirely comprised of his veterans.
Army of Phlan was officially created in DR 1381 after months of
wrangling, voted unanimously in favor by the Council and sanctioned by
the Prince. The faction is replacing Raegarís Legionnaires in-game to
represent them reaching their milestone goal to be recognized as the
official armed forces of Phlan.
Originally a mercenary company called the Axe of the North, led by
Maxim Raegar, the Legion was contracted by the City in the early 1370s
to serve as a deterrent to attacks from other cities and being able to
support the City Watch. Much of their respect was originally based on
this, as the Council realized lacking their support could become a
major problem in war.
General Maxim Raegar
Originally a member of the Axe
of the North mercenary force at the age of 20, from an impoverished but
proud noble family, the last scion of the Raegars showed keen intellect
and determination, as well as an exceptional talent for strategy. As he
gradually rose through the ranks, he began changing the company's focus
towards a strategic and elite front, rather then relying upon brute
force. He assumed command of the Axe of the North Company during a border skirmish in the Thar, in which the
original commander vanished, and was presumed dead.
stern commander, with a no-nonsense approach to his leadership, he
takes a dim view of "wayward" soldiers, often seeing them ousted from
his ranks. Now in his late 40's, Raegar maintains his physical fitness,
albeit his field days are increasingly rare as the responsibilities of
Army Command settle on his shoulders.
