The White Army is the military force of the White Alliance. While all able-bodied citizens are expected to take up arms during times of war, the White Army is a standing force. Its main purpose is to defend the member states against invasion, but in some member cities they are called upon to serve as law enforcement or as intelligence operatives.
The White Army was formed as a cohesive unit shortly after the formation of the Alliance itself. During the Wars of Arin, commanded by Roderick Harper, it played a key role in the defense of Kellan against the Onyx Empire.
The White Army is currently commanded by General Zachriel. Each of the ten alliance duchies has a garrison, and each is commanded by a captain:
|Filitir Forest||Orant the Seeker|
|Vesqui||Fitzky do Barra|
Typically, a garrison has 1,000 soldiers, although there may be more or less at any particular time. Each garrison is divided into 10 divisions, each led by a lieutenant, each of which is further divided into 10 companies, each led by a sergeant and containing 10 soldiers including the sergeant.
The White Alliance also has a substantial naval force, which is considered part of the Army. It is commanded by Templeton and has bases in Morelenas, Gascar, and Kimelis.
