The Triarii Protectors are a military organization of The Republic of the Sphere. Each Prefecture has a Triarii Protector regiment manned by green troops who are devoted to Devlin Stone's ideals. Like Nicholas Kerensky's actions when founding the Clans, Devlin Stone mixed the composition of the Protector regiments by integrating troops from every House, nation, and Prefecture rather than dividing them by regional loyalty. This forces the soldiers to discard any preconceptions they may have about their fellows, improving their cohesion and reinforcing the successful practices of The Republic.
Like the Knights of the Inner Sphere, the Protectors see themselves as ambassadors as well as soldiers and are often in the public eye as the face of the Republic Armed Forces. More than merely "parade ground" troops, they also develop their political and diplomatic skills while interacting with the members of various factions. When a Protector gains enough experience (both combat and diplomatic) they are often promoted into the Hastati Sentinels or Principes Guards.
The Triarii Protector regiments are numbered by the Republic Prefecture where they serve. Therefore the 1st Triarii Protectors are based in Prefecture I of the Republic, the 2nd Triarii Protectors are based in Prefecture II, etc. The ten regiments are:
- 1st Triarii Protectors
- 2nd Triarii Protectors
- 3rd Triarii Protectors
- 4th Triarii Protectors
- 5th Triarii Protectors
- 6th Triarii Protectors
- 7th Triarii Protectors
- 8th Triarii Protectors
- 9th Triarii Protectors
- 10th Triarii Protectors
It is unclear how the Triarii Protectors reacted to Jonah Levin's activation of the Fortress Republic plan. Some units may have refused to abandon their duty stations while others would likely obey the recall order.
