WHen Valerian had conquered most of the East, he has already formed his tribal warriors into army units, and began the work of organising the others too.

He used the word Legion to describe them, as it had been used by the Sea of Grass Clans to rperesent uncountable enemies.

The Legions were formeds on recruits from each province's previous levies/militia, household soldiers. They began as nothing special, but became the mainstay of the EMpire's armies...fully professional Regulars who were filled with rpide and comradeship.

To supplement them there were the best warrior castes from each province too, but 70% of each Imperial army was of Legions. He chose pike, bow and lancers, mostly because these require the least training to become effective.

The advantage they had was that all they did in life was train and fight. They were bloodied in wars, dependable and always on duty. When needed to move at speed, they could almost match CHo Tetsu at short bursts of swift movement.
