The Tentenal Guard - also more commonly known as the Red Guard (Guardia Rossa) - are the force that ensures the safety of the Dynast Emperor and his family, as well as the security and integrity of the Sovereign's private residence at Epoxague, Veneziano Palace, and Theros Obsidia. They carry the distinction of being the only public military force in Auresia that wears beskar'gam - Janessari steel.

The motto of the Guard is "Meus vita pro suus." - "My life for his". (Hers if the reigning Sovereign is Dynast Empress.) The full declaration is "My life for his. God save the Dynast Emperor!"

The Tentenal are also known as the Guardia Imperiale - the Imperial Guard. They are led at their pinnacle by the Lord Paramount of the Court known as the Lord Castellan.

Background

A Tentanal of the Shield of Alexandros on watch, West Gate of Veneziano Palace, as the Dynast Sovereign prepares to depart the Palace.

History

Formed during the reign of Cephorus I, the Guard is the elite force charged with the safeguard of the Dynast Emperor, his wife and children, and his immediate family. They are also the main security force defending Veneziano Palace in Cedelphia. By tradition, they serve "At the pleasure of Their Most Excellent and Discerning Sovereign Imperial Majesty the Dynast Sovereign, Master of the Armies and Lord of our Service, in defence of the dignities and traditions of the Court of Elestis." They will be found wherever the Emperor is and throughout the Imperial Sanctum. All Tentenal wear a red tunic, black trousers, and black riding boots. With this they wear a white belt with silver buckle and a white sash with a thin scarlet stripe down its center. Their helmet is silver with pale gold trim and the symbol of the Order of Saint Vincenzo emblazoned upon it, with a white plume.

Name

The name of the guard - tentenal - is Janessari term meaning "loyal blade". In the traditions of the mercenary people, the tentenal were those select who were the "hands" of the Jende'alor. When the Dynast Father essentially absorbed his finest Janessari into the Second Imperium, Cephorus took his tentenal and made them into his royal guard. They have fulfilled this role ever since.

Qualification

To become a Tentenal Guard, an Auresian trooper must have served a minimum five years in the Imperial Armed Forces. Their record cannot list a single demerit or discipline. They must be qualified master marksmen with the service pistol, rifle and one other weapon of choice. Likewise they must be certified to operate at least four classifications of combat vehicle. They must be recommended for consideration by their senior officer and accepted into the Tentenal training school. Once they are approved, accepted and graduated from training, they may join the ranks of the Guard.

The Tentenal receive their specialized training, known for being harsh and unforgiving, in the dry lands of Galerion's Forge, a region of the Empire nestled in the harshest reaches of the Glacio Mountains.

Strength

The Tentenal are a division-strength unit. By tradition, they are all male, and must meet specific height and weight requirements. They answer to none but the Emperor, or his Lords Paramount when necessary, and the legate in command is hand-picked by the Emperor himself. They enter the Guard with the firm understanding that their lives and skills, from that day, belong to the Dynast Emperor alone, and that they are continuing a sacred tradition of service and loyalty.

An elite platoon of the Guard known as the Scudo di Alexandros - "Shield of Alexandros" - exists solely to accompany the Dynast Sovereign everywhere they go. A dozen of them will be the Tentenal on station in the Throne Room during daily Court attendance, with the remainder stationed throughout the Lyceum of the Imperial Sanctum. Whenever the Emperor moves about the Palace or wherever he is, six of them accompany him at all times. Their uniform is unique as they wear a black tunic under the armored cuirass (which has gold detailing) instead of a red tunic, their trousers are white instead of black, and the plume of their helmet is red instead of white. These men are acknowledged to be the deadliest and most dedicated of the entire guard.

Duty

When on duty, a Tentenal will never speak to anyone but their superior Guard officers, any of the Lords Paramount, or the Emperor himself. Indeed, while on post, a Tentenal can go their entire shift without saying a word. They will not react to any outside stimuli, and will not peer or turn towards anyone attempting to get their attention. Those who attempt to gain entrance to the Imperial Sanctum who are not known and acknowledged will be turned back firmly but respectfully only once. Tourists or visitors who get too close or actually attempt physical contact with them will be warned off with the shouted declaration, "Get back from the Imperial Guard!"
