Imperial Black Legion Lore
Peace through strength
The Imperial Black Legion or simply IBL is an elite imperial legion established at direct request of the Emperor. The legion is designed to be a versatile and deadly strike force and takes orders directly from imperial high command. The Black Legion is infamous amongst the empire's enemies for its reputation to strike when they are least expected and with overwhelming force. Because of the legions high profile most of its deployments and operations are carried out in secrecy and kept off the records. The Black Legion is garrisoned on Corellia near the planets capital Coronet City. Because of known rebel cells on Corellia the Black Legion also guides CorSec in protecting its citizens.
The legion was formed on 19 BBY a few month after the formation of the Galactic Empire. The reason for its creation was because the imperial high command requested an elite unit that was highly loyal and highly versatile and could be deployed at direct command of the IHC to carry out high priority missions that are sometimes required to be off the record. At its founding the legion was originally garrisoned on Corruscant. And earned many battle honors fighting the remains of the clone army. After the Treaty of Corellia was signed on 2 BBY and the Galactic Civil War started, the Black Legion was dispatched to restore peace and order to Corellia. They were met with heavy resistance from the rebel alliance. During the fighting against the rebels the IBL quickly earned an infamous reputation amongst the enemy of being highly lethal and ruthless. The rebels would come to learn that fighting the Black Legion in open combat was a forlorn hope and many rebels cells were crushed. The remaining rebels eventually lost taste for battle and they would go into hiding or moved off-world. After peace and order was restored the decision was made to move the IBL's headquarters to Corellia and keep it garrisoned there permanently.
