The Stilletroppen

The Stilletroppen is a specialized military force that exclusively serves the emperor. They were founded by Abinad Diatta, who initially named them the Toir Tuirc Mercenaries. Emperor Carolus hired the mercenaries to work against the Farris Rebels, utilizing them for sabotage while also quelling support for the rebels. During the Battle of Bailchríoch, the Toir Tuirc Mercenaries led the charge against the Farris Rebels and wiped out most of their cavalry, magi, and artillery forces. For their efforts and effectiveness, Carolus decided to make them an advanced fighting troop for the royal family. Thus, they were renamed, given better gear, and swore their loyalty to Emperor Carolus.

The Stilletroppen remain active. Although their exact numbers aren’t on public record, it is estimated that their numbers around the entirety of Iuris ranges 3,000 – 5,500 members. They keep the peace in the empire. Their main duties are to wipe out bandits, rebels, and maintain harmony in larger cities. Each territory has several Stilletroppen units, and each territory has a captain that oversees them all. Their commander ranks above the four captains.
