THE SENTINEL GAME PIECES ARE ‘LEGIONARY-CLASS’ OPERATIVES
The StarArena Sentinel 衛兵 Game-Pieces are specially trained by Battle-Monks. Hand picked by one, or both Colonels from their divisional monastic-regiments, and assigned for duty as Royal-Guard 王宮衛兵. In ancient times these were called the Sergeants-at-Arms, and in divisions where they uphold archaic traditions, you might hear the title fall more than once. In terms of reference, these Battle-Units classify as Heavy-Infantry 重歩兵. But with the grand reform of the Stratocracy this regiment was given the title and position of Legionary 軍団の!
Note: Legionary Battle-Units are a breed apart and carry Guardian Ranks and Insignias, donating their commitment to Temple, Game-Gods and Code-Root.
