The Imperial Badge is the official seal and coat-of-arms of both Military Household and Imperial Guard.

The His Majesty's Own Imperial Military Household is the military part of the imperial household. Like the rest of the imperial household, the military household is under the authority of the Minister of the Imperial Civil House, but it depends on the First Adjutant for its budget and operational activity.
The Imperial Military Household is the largest organization within the Imperial Household, built on purely ideological basis. The Imperial Military Household distinguishes itself from the Imperial Armed Forces and other organizations of the Empire through its structure of ranks, insignias and uniforms.
The Military Household is placed above the common imperial legal system. The special jurisdiction of the Military Household determines that the its men can be convicted of crimes and transgressions only by disciplinary officers and courts of the Household itself. This ensures the entire organization of the Military Household immunity from ordinary legal proceedings.

Are part of the Imperial Military Household His Majesty's Adjutants, the General Military Orders, the Imperial Guard, the Military Knights of Jinavia and the Superintendent General of Security Services of Imperial person. Each branch of the Imperial House Military has its own internal division.

His Majesty's Adjutants Edit

His Imperial Majesty's Suite is a Court unit of personal aides to the Russian Emperor, who usually are officers of the Army or the Gendarmerie. The aides to the Emperor are assigned honorary title of Adjutant; it was used in parallel with existing personal military, court or civil rank or title.
The First Adjutant is Commandant of the Imperial Military Household; in the performance of the service is supported by Senior Adjutant Officers, coming from the Armed Forces or the Imperial Guard but do not belonging to them. The Praetorian Prefect is always the First Adjutant of the Emperor.

Military Knights Edit

The Military Knights of Jinavia are retired officers receiving a pension and an apartment on the Imperial Palace. They ensure the liturgical services and support for the Palace Chapel. Are commanded by a retired senior officer, the Governor of the Military Knights of Jinavia.

Military General Orders Edit

Military General Orders are the main non-line combatant branch of the Imperial Military Household and constitute the reference and coordination section of the whole Military Household. Most of the personnel of the Orders lives and works in other branches of state government or the Imperial Civil Household. Orders are divided into four main categories.

  • First Class: Security organizations of the Military Imperial House, part of the Orders;
  • Second Class: Full members of the central departments of the main Military General Orders;
  • Third Class: Part-time volunteers of the regional units of General Orders Military;
  • Fourth Class: Honorary Members of the Imperial Military Household, of the Reserve or otherwise inactive personnel.

A third of the members of the General Orders Military is composed of First and Second Class full members: they receive the salary and are employed permanently in the departments and perform the duties of the House Military Imperial as their primary occupation.

Central organization Edit

The Office of Personnel is the office of central storage for all officers and potential officers of the House Military Imperial. It is divided into two main departments:

  • Department for personnel data
    • Central Archives
    • Ability Awards and Achievement
    • Office of Disciplinary Affairs and Awards
  • Department for honorary and potential officers.

The General Court of Justice is the legal department of the Casa Imperial Military. It is responsible for the formulation of laws and codes to be adhered to by all members of the House Military, as well as the administration of internal justice. Full members also manage the 5 Regional Courts of Justice of the Territorial Orders and the Central Court of Justice.

Crusader Force Edit

The Crusader Force is a special unit of Military General Orders, performing a double role of parallel foreign intelligence service and internal/external special force, of about 800 men. It is tasked with exporting Imperial ideology and is responsible for extraterritorial operations of the Military General Orders. The Crusader Force reports directly to the Emperor jointly to the Praetorian Prefect. The force is active in several countries and is organized into twelve different directorates based on geographic location and political affiliation. While enjoying of an elevate degree of independence, the unit is not independent at all: the Forxe is subject to strict military discipline, controlled by the Imperial Military Household hierarchy and, ultimately, by the Emperor.
The Crusader Force comprises three other special units, the Aquila and the Vanguard Group and the Arihant Battalion.

Aquila Group Edit

Aquila Group is an elite, stand-alone component of Jinavian Imperial Guard and the dedicated counter-terrorism task-force of the Imperial Guard.

The unit is authorized to act under the direct control and sanction of His Majesty, being at once available for expanded police duties, essentially paramilitary applications, and/or additional covert military operations.

Vanguard Group Edit

Physical training includes close hand combat, parachute training, diving, underwater combat techniques, climbing, and alpine rope techniques.

The bulk of Military General Orders formations are gathered in part-time spread throughout the Empire. The members of the territorial units meet in uniform at given days, as well as participate in various public liturgies. The Gendarmerie may, upon authorization of the Praetorian Prefect, apply for assistance by the units.
Territorial units of the Imperial House Military Orders are organized into Territorial Orders, District Commands and Territorial Legions. They are paid a reduced salary, except for the commanders of each division.

  • Territorial Order: The Order Commands are the main administrative division of Military General Orders. Dealing with medical training and protection of territorial units and the preparation of technical units equipped with specialized high-level alongside the Imperial Guard. Commanders of the Order are known under the simple title of Commander. There are 7 territorial order.
  • District Command: The district commands have the same duties of Order Commands, but at a lower level. Are classified by a numbering, where orders have territorial names. There are 28 district commands.
  • Territorial Legions: The Territorial Legion is the main territorial unit of Military General Orders. The Legions are organized on a regimental strength, each with its own serial number and the name of a local imperial hero. There are 84 Territorial Legions.

They are intended as a reference for the high nobility and peerage and depend on the orders within which are set up.

Night Shadows Edit

"Night Shadows" is the name given to the Imperial Guard stay-behind and Götterdämmerung organization, consisting in commando forces which would operate behind enemy lines as the enemy advance and defeat through Jinavia. The Night Shadows is a clandestine guerrilla organization comprising irregular Imperial Guard partisans. The Night Shadows, however, also consist of uniformed troops. The core of Night Shadows are legitimate uniformed Imperial Guard formations trained to engage in clandestine operations behind enemy lines, using partisans' guerrilla tactics.
The main objective of the Night Shadows is to continue fighting underground even after the surrender of the Imperial government and the Jinavian military: therefore, the Night Shadows represent the purest and most genuine spirit of Imperial doctrine and ideology.
Commanders of the Territorial Orders must suggest suitable recruits, who then are trained at secret locations. Night Shadows recruit only from most fanatic members of Territorial Orders. These recruits are specially trained in guerrilla tactics and in terrorist activities.
The tactics available to the organization include sniping attacks, arson, sabotage, and assassination. Training includes such topics as the production of home-made explosives, manufacturing detonators from common articles, and every member is trained in how to jump into a guard tower and strangle the sentry in one swift movement, using only a metre of string. The Night Shadows have at their disposal a vast assortment of weapons. Some hidden weapon depots are buried trough the country to be used by the Night Shadows in their terrorist actions after the defeat of the Empire.
It is keen to remark that the Night Shadows do not have any intent to raise a people insurgency: they are intended to fight until the death, looking for a bloody end of their lives and a magnificent twilight of the gods. The Night Shadows are fully "desperadoes", fanatics ready to live in forests and mountains as nomad bands. Their arms and tactics are intended to arse themselves on the funeral pyre of the then-former Imperial regime after the fall of the last Emperor.

Imperial Guard Edit

The Jinavian Imperial Guard are military units serving as personal guards of the Emperor of Jinavia. Xavier the Savante founded the first such units of all services to replace the politically-motivated Praetorians. It acts as bodyguard and tactical reserve force and consists of a Staff, an administrative department, the Corps of cavalry, artillery, infantry, as well as military police and health.
The duties of the Imperial Guard are only partly ceremonial, providing constant protection of the Sovereign and frequent participation in all armed conflicts. The protection and safety of the Emperor, his family, the Imperial Household and Emperor's authority, and the police sourveillance of imperial residences, and completion of other services are the responsibility of the Imperial Guard.

Membership Edit

The ranks are composed of a large majority of nobles, including non-titled ones, although some units are drawn from elite units of the Imperial Armed Forces.
At recruitment is required a minimum height of 1.95 meters for Grenadiers and Guards of Honour, 1.88 meters for the other units and pure Aryan ancestry since 1750 for the officers, since 1800 for soldiers, specific and adequate sanitation. The Imperial Guardsmen are required to demonstrate perfect health: the smallest lack of vision in front snaps exclusion: the Guard is a militia that must reflect all the Olympic rules.
In addition to physical requirements and noble blood, every soldier of the Imperial Guard must keep a book on which note specific family events and family relationships. To be admitted to the Guard a soldier has to having taken at least ten years of service in the Imperial Armed Forces, having taken in fighting an irreproachable conduct, being of good character and be graduated with honors from the training institutes or by the Military Academy.

Ideology and trainingEdit

At the Academy of the Guard all candidates are provided of ideal and ideological training of the highest severity. Iron discipline is freely and happily accepted. Team spirit and constant camaraderie disengage them from any caste pride.
Heroism is the ruling law. The heroic conception of duty is enhanced by magnificent evocation of past glories. Serving as a model for other troops, the Imperial Guard must be blameless, reinforcing cohesion among other units with their mere presence and conduct.
The discipline is harder and nastier than in the Imperial Armed Forces. On the spiritual level, the warrior ethic that nourishes greater combat capability of the Imperial Guard is the manifestation of the internal values to any form of initiation warrior. Imperial Guard training emphasizes ruthlessness, near-suicidal disregard for personal safety, and the use of cruelty as a standard weapon in order to weaken opponents with terror.
The Imperial Guardsman fights in the name of loyalty to their race, Empire and the Emperor, where lives in the essence of Indo-European blood. The Imperial Guardsman is the new man who claims spiritual values, aristocratic, hierarchical and warriors. Any Imperial Guardsman arrives at an existential stake in their lives, and gradual combustion within themselves, through the cold excision of emotional impulse and instinct of preservation. For the Imperial Guard no fear, because fear of a slave who has not passed his life, therefore, he is the ruler of death. He, therefore, is suitable for enrollment in the warrior aristocracy leading the war. For the Imperial Guardsman combat is intended only as a practice still direct annihilation of the enemy, ready to do worse against anyone who wants to hurt him. In a political soldier, as every member of the Imperial Guard is, purity justifies any hardness, disinterest justifies every trick, while the impersonal nature impressed to the fight dissolves all moralistic concern.

Winter Solstice Edit

The Imperial Guard replaces the pagan celebration of winter solstice, which falls on Dec. 21 to Christian celebrations of 24 and 25 December.
The winter solstice is said the shortest day of the year, "the day that is not a day" because it marks the point of fracture between an half-year and the other: the sun touches the lowest point of the horizon, so this is the longest day with the shadows. It is said that its night is the longest, and the darkest, of the year.
Symbolic element of this new pagan festival of the Imperial Guard is the "Light of Yule" which is officially delivered personally selected by the Praetorian Prefect and the possession of this lamp is registered in the state of service of those who had received it. In case of lack of respect for the principles of the Imperial Guard, the lamp should be returned.
The winter solstice is not celebrated in the family but within the units of the Imperial Guard. The highest-ranking officer lights the Christmas-tree candles with the top candle resting on top of the "Light of Yule," with a solemn act.
The small flame that is burning inside the lamp is a symbol of the year is ending in his last hour. The greater flame on top of the lamp comes on at the precise moment when the new year begins its course. Each Imperial Guard who has a pure heart and clean can grow on and see the light of the new year.

Golden, Crimson and Silver Guard Edit

The Guard is composed of three echelons. The Golden Guard comprises some of the finest soldiers in Jinavia. The Crimson Guard is composed of veterans from the war campaigns. The Silver Guard consists of the very best of the annual intake of conscripts, and it is not considered to be of quite the same caliber of the senior Guards, although its units are still superior to the normal line regiments.

Order of battle Edit

The Imperial Guard has a total force of 210,000 men at arms. It is composed of two Corps (for a grand-total of six divisional-level Legions) and by the Special Imperial Guard.
