House Shadow Legion was started in the Late 1980s by Duke Sir Kane Redfeather and Duchess Illisa the Nightwatcher after the demise of House Eagle.


House Shadow Legion is the largest mercenary household in the kingdom and takes part in events throughout the Known World. Fighters in the household muster for all major wars in which the kingdom participates. Most notably Gulf Wars, Diamond Wars, Pennsic and on occasion Border Raids in Meridies.
