Formed through the Galactic Republic's grand will, The Ninth Legion's main purpose was to execute missions which required fast and underhanded tactics to ensure victory in areas before a battle could have the opportunity to surface. Working under the philosophy that a single dagger in the dark was better than a thousand swords at dawn, the members of The Ninth Legion were initially scattered throughout known space and placed in other organisations so they'd be capable of keeping vigil over all sectors of Republic space and always have a unit close at hand for short notice mission statements.
The Ninth Legion's primary leaders were kept as a need-to-know basis for only the highest military personnel to view, however, due to the Sith Empire's invasion and the forced, fragile treaty, The Ninth Legion is once again called to immediate service. Due to the circumstances, secrecy is difficult, the Leaders adopting a more public profile and open recruitment drive to increase the efficiency of the Legion itself and to optimise the success rate of their missions.
What do we do?:
The Ninth Legion specialises in delivering surgically precise strikes behind enemy lines, inflicting fear and paranoia into any opposition unfortunate enough to pitted against them.
They strike from the dark, blind spot in every coherent beings mind, inflicting as much damage as possible in the smallest time available, before moving on to complete their objectives amongst the confusion and animosity of the unforeseen battle.
Commonly regarded as 'hit and run' attacks, the Legion prefers not to stage a stalemate of an encounter with any enemy, opting to use underhanded strategies and tactics to out manoeuvre their opponents before they even realise what they're fighting against.
The Ninth Legion is, as you can see, a heavy roleplay guild emphasising on loyalty and, to a degree, zealotry. All members are expected to be viciously loyal to the cause of the Legion and its goals, which are firstly to the Republic and then to themselves.
We intend to offer a Military styled guild for those that are interested which harbours a darker, somewhat more sinister underlining hidden from the public eyes without breaking the boundaries of becoming an evil organization, but in theory a valued addition to the Republic-aligned guilds due to its questionable yet effective methods on the battlefield.
The Leaders of the Guild are all experienced roleplayers who specialise in management of large scale groups and with expansion in numbers we'll be offering events, both factional and cross-factional as well as organized player-vs-player situations to keep it's members entertained. Despite being primarily a roleplay guild, we'll also contribute to PvE and PvP content for a full experience.
Those who join The Ninth Legion can expect an immersive roleplay experience.
Each class has its own ranking system within the guild. Most of these ranks are purely for In-Character matters only, unless specificaly labled as an Officer rank.

● A Note About Smugglers Within The Ninth Legion ●

Respect: Despite a possible aggressive attitude in-character, you will always be expected to respect every other player and guild that you interact with out-of-character.
Maturity: Though everyone appreciates a good joke, we also expect people to act maturely when interacting with each other. Sometimes things can become 'too much' and ideally our members should know when to stop and what boundaries not to cross socially.
Patience: Sometimes problems can scale out of control, the unexpected happens or things are taken from an in-character perspective to an out-of-character one. As a member, you're expected to keep a level headed mind-set and patiently work through anything placed in your way.
