Physical Description: The soldiers wear green armor when equipped and out in the field, and dark blue dress uniforms when at military functions or at city hall. Currently, most soldiers in the military appear younger than 20 summers, though the higher ranking lieutenants and captains appear older. The military flag is a stylized shield on a green backdrop.
The Defenders are Peltarch's military, and make up the bulk of its ground forces, including cavalry, and also comprise its navy. They are led by General Gom. General Gom's years of service in the Peltarch military out-number any other current member. All the same, he is known for his abrasive attitude and loud, frequently offensive demeanor. Higher-ranking military officials and military historians, however, praise his strategic decisions.
Captain Reyhenna Jorino is another veteran, though younger than Del'rosa and known as much for her hot head as her string of military victories and accomplishments. The most notable of which is her purge of the military of the defector Far Scout Commander Smoke and his traitorous supporters. She commands a regiment of loyal soldiers, though many were recruited from questionable mercenaries who were more interested in gold than the army, some who have hitherto left Peltarch altogether. The Captain Jorino is the most controversial among her peers due to her involvement in domestic disputes, the most public of which against the Seafarer Organization in the Docks.
Captain Renius Hrresh commands Peltarch's navy. Hrresh is an experienced naval officer and one of Reyhenna Jorino's closest allies. His expertise is in naval combat and he has won numerous ship to ship battles.
The Defenders have certain notable lieutenants:
Lieutenant Scott Grimm is a reputedly ruthless and pragmatic soldier who is willing to make hard decisions some military observers have called ethically questionable. Grimm is considered politically savvy, and has secured a seat on the Royal Council, representing the Commerce District.
The Defenders were formerly led by Frederic Del'rosa, a seasoned veteran of many wars. He was known for his charisma, pragmatism, and patience. Opinion is divided between those who consider him a capable statesman and the others who say his flexibility can at times border on about-face.
