Alya Protectorate Militia
|Alya Protectorate Militia Division|
|Unit Profile (as of 3075)|
|Parent Formation||Word of Blake Protectorate Militia|
The Alya Protectorate Militia Division is one of the many militias raised by Word of Blake to defend the Word of Blake Protectorate. The unit was deployed in Alya. As of 3075 it was the only unit raised from this planet.
A mixture of Word of Blake troops and Blakist-employed mercenaries conquered Alya in a two-week campaign fought in mid-May 3069 using conventional means; Alya was then incorporated into the Word of Blake Protectorate.
In late August 3075 forces from Clan Ghost Bear led by Delta Galaxy and designated Delta Wave by the Ghost Bears arrived and launched a campaign to liberate the planet, ignoring all hails from Draconis Combine forces and securing the flank of the Ghost Bear push towards Terra.

As long as a Protectorate Militia force is fighting on its homeworld and is acting as the scenario's Defender, the Protectorate Militia force receives the Force the Initiative and Off-Map Movement special abilities. If deployed as the Attacker in a scenario, the Protectorate Militia force loses its Force the Initiative ability, but retains its Off-Map Movement capability.
If deployed on a world other than its homeworld (such as an Epsilon Eridani force being deployed on Genoa), the Protectorate Militia force not only loses all of its special abilities, but also suffers a –2 Initiative modifier.
Although Blakist-based, Protectorate Militia forces may use standard Inner Sphere force arrangements (Lances, Companies, and Battalions) rather than Word of Blake force arrangements.
