XII Hastati Sentinels
|XII Hastati Sentinels|
|Affiliation||Republic of The Sphere|
|Parent Command||Hastati Sentinels|
The XII Hastati Sentinels were a Hastati Sentinels unit raised after Gray Monday.
The XII Hastati Sentinels (or Twelfth Hastati Sentinels) were formed in 3137 to calm the people of Northwind. The First Kearny Highlanders were absorbed into the Republic Armed Forces, and the Northwinders were unhappy with the loss of their traditional garrison unit. To allay their fears, the Republic High Command commissioned the Twelfth. Most of the soldiers of the Twelfth had historical ties to the Northwind Highlanders regiments, and officers from the Twelfth frequently served as instructors at the Northwind Military Academy. Another sign of respect was the fact that the Twelfth used the old IX Hastati Sentinels insignia of a winged and kilted bear as their insignia.
The Twelfth was stationed on Northwind in 3145, and the regiment was the main defending force during the Battle of Northwind against the Capellan invasion. They faced off against the First Canopian Lancers, 4th McCarron's Armored Cavalry, Laurel's Legion, and Warrior House Imarra.
