Praetorians are the most respected of warriors in all the Thermocrat Empire. Many act as personal guard to government servants, but others stick to their military roots and rise through the ranks to lead and command.
Given access to state of the art equipment they are held to a very high standard and many are crushed under the pressures of their responsibility. To prevent this all Legionnaires who rise to the ranks of Praetorian are granted lordship, with conditions for land if service continues. Those that survive to retire find themselves honing their skills in private and modifying their armor to push it’s limits. Some become good enough lords or use their abilities to become local heroes, but most will return to serve the Empire again and again, until only ashes remain.
