The Dark Age[edit]

The Fourteenth Principes Guards was a newly-raised regiment in 3145, just like its sister regiment, the Fifteenth Principes Guards. Unlike the Fifteenth, the Fourteenth had the distinction of being raised almost entirely from a single world - Elgin. The commanding officer of the Fourteenth, Colonel Owen Boyle, was a distant relative of the Captain Edward T. Elgin for whom the planet was renamed centuries earlier.[1]

The Department of Requisition and Replacement began deploying additional equipment to the Fourteenth to help speed up the unit's growth after witnessing the impressive results Colonel Boyle was achieving with his new command - Boyle was pushing the Fourteenth hard in training, with the various battalions rarely being seen away from the training fields.[1]


In 3145 the commanding officer is Colonel Owen Boyle.[2]
