Mercenary Desert Legionary Defectors

The only loyalty these men have is to themselves, survival and continued coin.

Punishment in the Roman Army was severe, even for minor crimes. An act of desertion - treason in the eyes of the Senate - brought with it even more brutal punishments, such as being placed in a sack filled with snakes and tossed into a river. Yet in spite of the oath they swore, Roman troops did desert their ranks and, in many cases, found their way into the employ of opposing armies. More often than not, these soldiers came from conquered Imperial territory, breaking away from an overlord they didn't believe in to fight for their homeland.
