In 2320, 6 years after the Empire as we know it was born, the "Shield of the Empire" was formed as a loyalist group pledged to defend the Empire, it's citizens and way of life. Their conviction and beliefs were challenged merely 3 years later during the great battle of Achenar when the Federation attempted to force the Empire back under Federation rule through brute force using their considerable Navy.
"Shield of the Empire" has always had strong ties with the Duval family ever since it's formation and to this day the group pledge their allegiance with the Duval family, currently working alongside the Empress, Arissa Lavigny-Duval.
Some may confuse the "Shield of the Empire" with the "Shield of Justice", however the latter is under direct rule and control by Arissa Lavigny-Duval while the "Shield of the Empire" is an independent group.
This ancient order has become diminished over the centuries and no longer have the same vast number of Commanders as it once did. However there are Commanders loyal to the Empire and supporters of the Duval family who find their way to become Shields themselves and join their ranks.
Are you loyal to the Empire and the Duvals?
