Mordu's Legion is a minor faction in New Eden. It was formed by military mastermind Muryia Mordu after the Waschi Uprising, when he took many of his disenfranchised, former Intaki troops - who had been expelled from Kamokor - under his wing. Their first action involved putting down the uprising that had resulted in their expulsion. They performed this task quickly and efficiently, establishing a trustworthy reputation that has remained to this very day.
The Legion retains close ties with the Caldari State, and its leadership remains Caldari, though members of all races are welcomed in its ranks, so long as they are not known enemies of the State. The State allows the Legion access to high-end Caldari military gear, and long-serving members of the Legion who are not State citizens are commonly offered Caldari citizenship upon retirement.
The Legion has set up home in Pure Blind and now operates as a professional mercenary outfit. While losing their long-standing contract with ORE during the latter's recent hostile takeover by the Serpentis was a blow, Mordu's Legion is still very much a force to be reckoned with. It is a notable feature of their professionalism that the Legion does not perform training tasks itself, expecting new recruits to have prior combat experience.
The Legion didn't actually participate in the fighting, but their rapid response and clear willingness to get involved has earned them plenty of additional friends within the Caldari Navy and the Megacorp security forces. On top of this, recruitment activity is at an all time high; soldiers from both the Federation and the State, united by their disaffection with their respective leaderships, are quietly knocking on the Legion's door. The rank and file are back to normal operational status now, but the word on the grapevine is that Mordu and his lieutenants are still ensconced in their war room and pumping a prodigious amount of encrypted data out into their strategic mainframes.
