|The Fifth Legion|
One of the pictures, drawn upon one of the recruitment posters in Stormwind.
Captain Danuvin, Jonah †
7th Legion, Valliance Expedition, Explorer's Guild, Ironforge, Stormwind, The Westfall Brigade (Merged), The Argent Crusade. All Alliance-based guilds are also offically allies, even if contact is limited.
Stormwind. Prone to travel in asssignments.
Forces merged with the Fifth Brigade:
Westfall Brigade (Merged), Stormwind City Guard (Merged) and some of the Stormwind Magi from Velanis, conscripts and willing soldiers who've joined the Legion.
A debate was held and a decision made, Cody was permitted to command a new Brigade, but he would not be funded in anyway by the King and would only be given a few hundred troops. His command also means nothing outside his Brigade, he only has higher privelage in his own Brigade. Outside the Brigade, he is still a soldier. (That is where progression comes in).
After much dicussion and convincing, Cody's old friend, Durkon, offers to fund the Brigade and help manage it. King Magni Bronzebeard is thrilled that his champion has finally come back to the field as a rightfull Commander and grants him access to a large portion of the Ironforge army.
The Legion, after a week of intense and 'hellish' training disbatch for Northrend, where they would participate in the raging war ahead.
Now, after their valiant efforts in Northrend, having aided in the push to Icecrown and the fall of Arthas, The Fifth Legion are renowned as heroes. Cody and Durkon has become Marshal's, and their closest friends have become Commanders of their Legion. However, their work is far from over as they have doned the responsability of protecting Stormwind, battling whatever dare challenge the city.
As of recently, the Legion funded an expedition to Uldum - and with help from Harrison Jones, they seek to bring treasures back in the name of the Alliance, alongside another - yet unknown - agenda.
The Fifth Legion is divided in several sectors or regiments, depending on who or what you are in the Fifth Legion. It depends on your race and faction of your character, as some factions will want to work with eachother in the Legion rather than mixing completely, due to commanding issues and the like. However, they usually work with each other in almost everything, just specializing in their own unique fields. Differant Commanders lead differant sectors, although that's not to say a Marshal from one sector cannot command a soldier from another if necessary.
The Stormwind Sector is the largest and main sector in the Fifth Legion, as most of the soldiers in the Fifth are indeed humans; as well as the Fifth Legion being based in the Command Center in Old Town. It accepts the following races into it's regiment:
- High Elves
This Sector is lead by several men. Other officers of other sectors do have a say in their motives, although not having complete control of the sector itself. The people worth mentioning would be:
- Marshal Cody Benedikt Hewitt - Overall leader of the Legion, as well as Marshal of the Alliance. He has the biggest say in the Legion other than the King himself. He is known for his many victories for the Alliance, and wields Bolvar Fordragons shield to prove that.
- Marshal Gryan Stoutmantle - Although not having as much say in matters when it comes to the sector due to not being based in Stormwind he is a strong second place. If anything happened to Cody Gryan would have to come from Westfall to lead the Legion in his stead.
- Commander Garrow Goldenbrew
- Knight-Commander Farren Mariah
- Captain Danuvin of the Stormwind City Guard
The Stormwind Sector also has several sectors in itself, making up the large and dominant sector that it is. The Fifth Legion for the IC years it has been run has gained many allies, who've sometimes formed and merged with the Legion.
This is not counting the main bulk of the troops that Cody gained himself, after people joining the Fifth Legion from before the Northrend war to the present day.
Or, otherwise known as the 'Stormwind City Guard' was the forces that held back the Defias as much as they could while the Westfall Brigade, 7th Legion and the Fifth Legion were in Northrend. Led in the Northrend war by Clades Minn, Corbin Gerald took charge of the whole of the Stormwind City Guard after the Guard merged with the Fifth Legion. Since Corbin left years later Captain Danuvin took charge.
- Humans, the favored race of this sector
- High Elves
They are not known for going to the front lines of wars, and almost always stay in the city itself.
- Led by Captain Danuvin, offically part of Marshal Cody Benedikt Hewitt's Stormwind Sector
The guard rarely take in races other than humans, although help is always welcome from the other sectors.
Used to be known at 'The People's Militia', although turned into the Westfall Brigade after King Varian wished for Gryan Stoutmantle to lead his men into the Grizzly Hills to combat the Horde. They merged with the Fifth Legion after the events at Naxxramas, to combat the Horde with more ferocity.
Members of the Westfall have joined the main bulk of the Stormwind Sector, although the previous leaders of the Westfall Brigade still fight alongside Gryan, except Danuvin who is now a Guard Captain.
Knights of the Fifth LegionEdit
The Knights, although not an offical 'sector' of the Fifth Legion are the elite and sometimes do their own offical missions and meetings. They are ferocious fighters and veterans of the Fifth Legion, who've known both loyalty and the ability to command and train troops with ease.
They are led by Farren Mariah, the Knight-Commander. They are not a sector you can simply join, and Farren picks those who he thinks are strong enough to join his ranks. Not many match their skill.
The Ironforge sector is one of the founding sectors of the Fifth Legion. Originally, it was made out of Thane Durkon Greyhammer's men who helped Cody make the Legion. In the early days of the Legion, the Ironforge forces were more than the Stormwind forces, as Cody will still new to leading his own Legion, although that has changed in present time. It stays as the second most populated sector in the Fifth Legion, and supplies them with many weapons and siege equipment from Ironforge itself.
The races allowed to join are:
- Dwarf (Bronzebeard and Wildhammer)
Most of the soldiers are from Durkons own personal men from the war in the Outlands, although many have joined since then. No Gnomes to date have a large say in the Ironforge Sector, although perhaps that may change in the future, as the Gnomes need a speaker. It is led by:
- Thane Durkon Greyhammer - Durkon is the founding member of the Fifth Legion alongside Cody himself, and has co led it since it was created. He is a powerful Mountain King and Windwarrior as well as a Thane, and has played a major part in both the Outland and Northrend wars. Wields Val'anyr, Hammer of the Ancient Kings and Legacy of Thunder.
- Thane Fargus Rockheart
The Ironforge sector continues to proudly support the Fifth Legion, as remains its closest friend to the Stormwind sector. They have been involved in all the wars the Fifth has been involved in and their soldiers skill matches to only the best Dwarven and Gnomish fighters.
