2nd Imperio Guards (Escorpión Imperio)
|2nd Imperio Guards|
|Parent Command||Omega Galaxy|
The Second Imperio Guards were a second line military unit of the Escorpión Imperio.
The Cluster was formed in the early 3080s in an attempt to integrate the former Umayyad and Castilian forces into the Imperio Militar del Escorpión. Trials were held for willing warriors to earn a place within the three new Clusters that were being formed for the newly created Omega Galaxy. The response from former troops was poor with barely two Clusters' worth of freeborn warriors, one of them being the Second.

|Star Colonel||Edgar Buck||3086|
There is no Bloodname called "Buck". This seems an exception to Clan Customs and a concession to the Castilians and Umayyads.
The Cluster is described as being of green quality and at 80% full strength, presumably full strength was five Trinaries of warriors.
