The Asentari Government and Military

Post by Jun on Sat Jan 28, 2017 7:44 am

Their armies are generally smaller, but make up for it with superior training and power, striking a balance of range/magic, and close quarters combat. Like any other military, it does have various divisions. There isn't a rivalry between any of them, at least not a natural one. They tend to prefer light and medium armor, since their natural Dragon Skin already makes it hard to cut them, on average. Weapons tend to be more personalized than in other militaries, and not restricted only to the Oculi Draconis. As the belief is that you should fight with the weapon you are most skilled at, so you're not as easy to kill and you kill more. In the realm of aerial combat, none can beat them. The closest is the Heanta's aerial divisions. They have an extremely small navy, and possibly have the weakest navy of all the nations. That said, they utilize their Wyverns in such a way as to make that weakness matter very little. Because it's a small navy, it only stays within a small area around their lone port city. Should they have to go out further, the Air Corps. is often called. Their ships are often large and bulky, and are mostly comprised of aerial units in the form of Kelari Riders, like modern day aircraft carriers. Their normal attack ships utilize primarily ballistae and a single catapult. Also larger than normal, they double as a troop transport. This was done mostly to conserve resources and make to keep little extra blueprints. 

The government is that of a republic, with various districts having an equal number of representatives, being two each. With 15 districts, 30 representatives (Praetors) are present, making the big decisions as a group. They then appoint a Primoris Rex, the supreme commander of the armies. Their credentials are always called into question, from their fighting capability to their ability to lead. They're often the strongest fighters in the army. They can be from literally any division. They then appoint a second in command. These two people control the entire military and update the Council on all military matters. Including bandit raids, invitations for alliances, etc. They are not allowed to show favoritism for a specific Praetor. To do so is punishable by maiming and immediate imprisonment. As too many have attempted to do so before in their history, and has often led to disaster and chaos.

The general army are mostly ground troops, utilizing only the occasional flying mount, but mostly drakes. They're the grunts, but don't underestimate them. They handle most situations and incidents. A Centurio and their second in command, called an Adjutor, controls the general army, though they are also underneath the Primoris Rex and the Cordus Rex. While it is uncommon for fights to occur, they are highly regulated fights used to settle differences and bad blood. Killing during these fights is strictly forbidden and is severely punished. A panel of three judges, often one being a superior commander and the other two unbiased soldiers, talk out what occurred and the like to determine the winner. However, regardless of who wins the fight, both sides are expected to accept the outcome and forgive each other. The tone before a fight is often somber, yet relaxed, with no drinking alcohol whatsoever, nor any use of recreational drugs.

If they were to conquer a city, they wouldn't pillage and rape, like often the Orken did, nor do they do mass slaughter like the Heanta and feast. The army is held to a strict code of conduct that would punishes unnessary violence, especially to innocent civilians.This would be to deter any thoughts of revenge by not giving reason in the first place. Or extremely little, as soldiers are just doing their jobs. While Reclusive in nature, the asentari aren't Xenophobic and they're also not ones to just stab someone because they came into their territory. They're given a chance to turn around and leave. And then get violent if necessary. Humans are usually welcome, more so than other races. They often work in squads of four, both in the general army and on patrols. The only exception is in the navy, which often has three ships in their patrols.
