The Imperial Legion is one of Tolnedra’s greatest forces and is even known as one of the world’s strongest armies.

There aren’t many mentions of them, but in Enchanter’s End Game, Princess Ce’Nedra goads her father into a fit, then proceeds to bribe the legions with gold. She does this by telling them a story wherein a man’s wife falls ill, but the doctor requests three pieces of gold. The husband loans that gold from a merchant, but the wife died anyway. The merchant asks where his gold is, but when the man has no gold, the merchant takes his shop. He then fell on his sword after his wife’s funeral. Ce’Nedra threw out red Angarak gold during the story. She persuades them into thinking that Cthol Murgos is trying to buy up Tolnedra, and in doing so, she gets the legions to leave in the hour.
