The Legion — First appears in Archangel's Legion; also seen in Archangel's Shadows and Archangel's Enigma.

Introduction Edit

The Legion are an ancient army of winged warriors—they are boogieman in Angel history. The Legion serves only the Aeclari—a warrior who wields the power of earth, of life—which turns out to be Raphael. The Legion is led by the Primary. They were summoned by Raphael (an Aeclari) and Elena's joint power during the War of NYC and serve them both. They are currently in residence in New York City, helping to rebuild the city after the war. They were given an entire highrise building, called the Legion Building, to have as their home and base.

Description Edit

During a Cascade, Archangels experience wild and sometimes uncontrollable shifts in power. Some gain control over animals, some over the elements, but Raphael’s abilities are even more astounding. He called forth from centuries-long sleep a mythic force known as the Legion. They are a repository of vast and unequaled power…and serve Raphael without hesitation. They have slept since the time of the Cascade of Terror, and awake only when the Archangels of Life and Death battle. They have existed since before the dawn of mankind, their purpose to fight against the death that stalks the world. ~ Guild Hunter Character Guide |

Quotes Edit

They were so old and so other that he often had to fight the compulsion to bite them. Despite that, or perhaps because of it, he sometimes felt that the strange fighters who flew on wings devoid of feathers, were more like him than anyone else in the entire world. Naasir might not have wings, but he was as other. Except, where there were seven hundred and seventy-seven in the Legion, he was only one. — Naasir[1]
