7th Marik Militia
|Seventh Marik Militia|
|Unit Profile (as of 2765)|
|Parent Formation||Marik Militia|
The Marik Militia brigade was formed in the early twenty-third century as the primary offensive and defensive brigade of the newly-formed Free Worlds League. The Seventh Marik Militia would serve the League for centuries. Like the other regiments of the brigade, the Seventh was dedicated to serving and defending the people of the League, rather than serving the Captain-General, a distinction that seperated the Militia from other federal formations such as the Atrean Dragoons and Free Worlds Guards.
Star League Era
When the Star League Council issued the Council Edict of 2650 limiting the size of the military maintained by each Great House the Seventh was one of nineteen active regiments within the Marik Militia. Like the other regiments of the Militia, the Seventh remained a popular unit with both the commoners within the League and the peerage because of their public dedication to the people of the League, and like the other regiments of the Militia often acted as training grounds for troops across the League. A significant number of the personnel serving in other more prestigious federal units and various provincial forces within the League had actually begun their careers in the Seventh or another of the Marik Militia regiments.
