The Taldryan Defense Force is the unified military branches of Clan Taldryan. This unified institution consists of the newly reorganized Taldryan Navy and Taldryan Army. The Defense Force is overseen by the Taldryan Strategic Operations Council, chaired by the reigning leader of Taldryan Rian Taldrya and the War Marshall Lee Starr. It was previously the Taldryan Expansionary Forces, and Taldryan Security Service before that. When Taldryan's forces were decimated and wiped out by Jac Cotelin, the forces were reorganized into their current incarnation.

History of Taldryan's Armed Forces

Taldryan Security Service

In 22 ABY, Consul Kir Katarn initiated the first general call to form a military force, unique to Taldryan. Whereas previously much of the burden of leading conscripted troops, and flying into battle had fallen onto the shoulders of the dark brethren, Katarn envisioned a proper military force. This force would be commanded and controlled by regular soldiers, drawn from local populations, and by luring the best talents he could from around the galaxy. It was Kir's most inspired creation, the Taldryan Intelligence Service, the first such independent intelligence service in the Brotherhood, that would allow Taldryan operatives to identify, and make contact with stellar individual talents, and convince them to serve Taldryan.

Along with the Intelligence Service, Kir oversaw the creation of the Naval, Army, and Logistics services, enabling Taldryan to field, and operate a completely independent armed forces, that would answer only to Taldryan. Despite the growing trust between Taldryan and the Dark Council, Kir ensured that if ever there were a time when Taldryan was abandoned by her allies, she would not be defenseless. As the years wore on, and Taldryan's influence and power began to wane, the Security Service began to fall into disrepute. With the casual conveyance of Dark Jedi flitting into the ranks, and collecting ranks, and inserting themselves into power over the regular forces, the service's command structures became bloated with ceremonial appointees and bureaucrats.

Taldryan Expansionary Force

In 36 ABY, in an effort to cut down the institutional rot, and once again organize Taldryan's military into a formidable force, Quaestor Rian Aslar decided to bring about a change in the Taldryan Military. He appointed long standing Taldryan veteran, and former Admiral of the Emperor's Hammer Keirdagh Cantor to revamp and modernize the forces available to Taldryan. Following the devastating losses suffered in the Brotherhood by the Horizon's Plague, and the attack of two crazed former Grand Masters, it became increasingly necessary to be able to field a well trained, and independent force, devoid of undue influence from the Jedi whom it served.

No longer would the forces be loyal to individual Dark Jedi commanders who were often elsewhere following their own dark paths, the new military would be focused on one goal, serving Taldryan, and Taldryan alone. By appointing full-time, non-force-sensitive commanders, veterans who has been seasoned in wars and campaigns throughout the galaxy, Taldryan could be sure that their military forces would not be appropriated by any rogue Dark Jedi. It could ensure that their troops would adhere to a strict chain of command, answering to a joint council of Dark Jedi appointees, and career military men, all under the command of the Rian Taldrya and Justinios Drake.

In an effort to move away from the perception of Taldryan's military forces as a defensive, policing force like CorSec and redefine it as what it is, a primarily offensive based strike force, intent on enforcing Taldryan's will to the galaxy at large.

Interaction between Dark Jedi and the Military

Taldryan’s military runs as a largely autonomous entity, outside of any influence from its Dark Jedi overseers, with the notable exception of the Dark Jedi serving on as advisers within the Strategic Operations Council. In order to ensure a strict command authority, the rulers of Taldryan decided that the military should act as an added weapon, to work in conjunction with the might of the Dark Jedi who it supported, rather than directly under them.

While it is customary for young Jedi of Taldryan to rotate into and out of combat units to help with their training and leadership, it largely only done with the lowest ranks, and never in a permanent capacity. The reasons behind this are twofold. One: Dark Jedi are constantly called away for special missions, and training, this actively hinders the unit cohesion that Taldryan’s military commanders are seeking. Two: By limiting a Dark Jedi’s role to that of simple infantry, their combat effectiveness would be reduced, forcing them to either endanger the lives of those they’re grouped with, or blunting their own abilities.

It is not unheard of, in times of great crises and war, that members from Taldryan’s Dark Jedi will join with their armed forces in combat. In these special circumstances, it is customary for Dark Jedi members to be granted a Brevet rank, one rank below that of the Unit Commander to which they are attached, so that they may lend their expertise to the Unit, but not bog down well drilled troops with an inexperienced and unfamiliar commander.

Branches of Taldryan's Military

Taldryan Navy

Main article: [[Taldryan Navy|Taldryan Navy]]

The Taldryan Navy is the backbone of the Taldryan Expansionary Force. Given the distances traveled, and the objectives required, no feat of martial strength is even possible without the might of Taldryan's fleet to ensure the safety of the operation. The Navy is responsible for system defense, planetary assault, space superiority as well as transport of our forces, and the interdiction of enemy forces. The Navy's day-to-day operations function independently of Taldryan as a whole, requiring little to no oversight from TalSOC. The Navy is also the home to the Taldryan Starfighter Corps, and the Taldryan Marine Corps. Both of these units are exist within the Navy's ranks, but have their own command structure and chain of command.

Taldryan Army

Main article: [[Taldryan Army|Taldryan Army]]

Taldryan's Army makes up one of the most significant pieces of the Taldryan Expansionary Forces, being responsible for ground-based military operations, and occupying enemy territory. The Ground forces of Taldryan are generally considered to be the least glamorous of the military branches, but respected as one of the most integral. The Army consists of multiple units divided by their strengths, consisting of infantry, mechanized infantry and reconnaissance Regiments. Taldryan's Army is also home to its elite Special Forces the Darkfire Battalion.

Taldryan Intelligence Directorate

Main article: [[Taldryan Intelligence Directorate|Taldryan Intelligence Directorate]]

The Taldryan Intelligence Directorate was the first of its kind within the Dark Brotherhood. The Directorate is responsible for keeping Taldryan's Leaders, both Military and Jedi, appraised of developments within the Brotherhood and the galaxy at large. The Directorate is divided into three divisions, TalSIG: The Signals Intelligence Division; focusing on observing, intercepting and analyzing communications from throughout the galaxy and Taldryan's own agents. TalSEC: The Counter-Intelligence and Domestic Security Division; focusing on ferreting out enemy infiltrations and seditionists within our borders. And finally TalSIS: The Secret Intelligence Service; focusing on infiltrating enemy organizations within the Brotherhood, various pirate and criminal organizations, and galactic governments.

Taldryan Quartermaster Corps

The old adage that an Army runs on its stomach is as true now, as anywhere in history. The Quartermaster Corps is Taldryan's answer to that universal truth; ensuring that the flow of required resources and supplies to our troops is maintained, and that our fighting troops have access to the best possible equipment that money can buy. The Quartermaster Corps is made up of trained officers and recruits from across Taldryan's territory, who work with house equipment and pair with private business to ensure the supply of Taldryan's combat units.

Recruitment & Training

Main article: [[Taldryan Military Institute|Taldryan Military Institute]]

The most important part of building and maintaining a successful armed forces, is in the training of recruits and the selection of the leaders and officers within it. As most of Taldryan's recruits are drawn from the various planets under Taldryan's command, it is vital that they receive the best possible training and indoctrination they can. That is why legendary Taldryan Consul Kir Katarn saw fit to commission the Taldryan Military Institute (TMI), modelling it after some of the most successful military institutions throughout the known galaxy. Implementing courses in tactics, leadership, weapons and even ethics, the TMI is Taldryan's best hope for the future of its military, and the well-being of all its forces.

Divided into multiple schools of training, the TMI is responsible for taking raw recruits, and producing the crewers, soldiers, pilots, and most importantly leaders, that will continue to serve Taldryan for many years to come.
