3rd Marik Protectors

Third Marik Protectors
Unit Profile (as of 3145)
Parent Formation Marik Protectors
Formed c. 3085 [1]


Founded during the early to mid-3080s, the Third Marik Protectors garrisoned the Trinity world of Sierra in 3085, where it swiftly adopted the native's rough and tumble style.[1] [2]

By 3145 the Third was considered to be the most skilled of the Marik Protectors regiments, having proved itself against pirates and nearly every neighboring state while protecting independent worlds situated between Andurien and the later-resurrected League.[3]

An assault upon Eleusis in 3148 by the Fourth and Fifth Andurien Cavalry saw the Third Marik Protectors driven from the planet.[4]
