Sworn to the Emperor, but trained and equipped by the Pythenites, the Bellonas the spiked spear that protects the royal bloodline. Most women who become Bellonas are raised from girls too wild or impatient to be raised to the status of true Pythenites. They are trained as hard and long as any soldier within the Legion and are still required to learn at the pace of other girls being taught by the Pythenites. This process has created warrior women that are more than worthy of protecting the imperial family for generations.
The Bellonas wear form fitting armor and learn to fight with long thin spears that wield the power of aether.
