The Imperatorian Guard was the elite security force of the Imperator and the official paramilitary of the Imperial Citizens Party. The primary purpose of the Guard was to protect the Holy Luthorian Empire and its Imperator.

History Edit

Formation Edit

The idea of a paramilitary force was first introduced when the Holy Luthori Church proposed to the Imperial Diet the formation of the National Defence Forces[1]. In the proposition, only government approved paramilitary groups were allowed, the Imperial Citizens Party, who at the time led the government took the opportunity to form the Imperatorian Guard, who later on became an institutionalized organization[2], still led by the ICP.

National crisis Edit

During the 4629 Youk Protests called by the largest opposition party, the Communist Party of Luthori in the city of Youk, the government sent in the National Defence Forces, primarily, the Holy Guard and the Imperatorian Guard who brutally cracked down on them, some even call it a massacre with regard to how many died during the event.
