Praesidian Honour Guard
Wherever you find the ruling class of the Praesidian Republic, the Praesidian Honour Guard will not be far away.
Tasked with protecting leaders and figures of importance, the honour cut a striking image in their golden armour.
The primary role of the honour guard is protection. Praesidians of particular renown, such as planetary leaders, will normally be accompanied by a group of 2 or 4 honour guards.
Praesidian Honour Guards usually come from a career military background, and are selected for their formidable skills. Because of their skills, and the role they occupy, the honour guard have access to some of the best equipment in the Republic.
Their armour is a combat version of ceremonial Praesidian armour, and offers far more protection that the armour worn by Praesidian infantry. All honour guard carry a sword and energy shield, though most choose to exchange their sword for the more traditional glaive.
Guardians of the Future
The other main role of the honour guard is the defence of the Praesidian Birthing Colonies. While Birthing Mothers are responsible for day-to-day security, each colony has a regiment of honour guard who guard the most important areas.
In the event of an invasion, it is the honour guards’ responsibility to ensure any un-hatched eggs are evacuated and defended.
