Ternion Corps, founded in 24 BCTG, was attached to the second sector army during the Clone Wars. Bloodied on Geonosis, Kamino and Malastare, the Corps established itself as an experienced and reliable battlefield group. The Ternion logo, an inverted arrow, originated as a NCO designation, but as the war progressed, it became a symbol of veterancy to the Clones and republic troopers who bore it. A symbol the entire Corps would earn with its long and successful service during the war.


Throughout much of the war, it consisted of three divisions: the 105th Armored Division, the 9th Infantry Division, and the 18th Infantry Division. At various points during the war, the corps was also reinforced by the Squib Rangers Battalion and the Malastare Rifles. After the war, after the military disbanded, the various Ternion Corps veteran associations remained connected to each other. Uncharacteristically, the camaraderie passed down to the children and grandchildren of the veterans, officers and enlisted alike, and membership grew rather than dwindled as time passed. While most Ternion Corps local chapters are no more than mere community groups meeting monthly to commemorate and celebrate the military achievements of their elders, some believe that as a whole the umbrella organization holds potentially significant influence through their members in high places in political and industrial arenas.

Notable Units

18th Administrative Division

Malastare Rifles Regiment

Bluntly put, Malastare's Pride originated from a group of veterans who failed to find gainful employment. During the Clone Wars, the Malastare Rifles participated in the defense of their home planet, fighting alongside of the 18th Infantry Division of the Grand Army of the Republic. They were mostly Dugs, though a noticeable number of other sentient species served with the regiment as well, for the planet of Malastare, the city of Pixelito in particular, was diverse and metropolitan. Returning home after the war, the post-war transitional economy offered them few career options. A group of veterans banded together and formed a loose network helping each other secure odd jobs in order to stay afloat. With their military background, it was not unexpected that many of such jobs were the likes of part-time armed guards at banks or serving as temporary police auxiliaries. As time went on, as many of these veterans gained fame as hired guns, fewer and fewer longed for regular employment. The loose group gradually became tight knit, and many of their children grew up together in their own type of a small village. As their exploits became known over drinks, some of the 18th Infantry Division veterans who longed for their former lifestyles traveled to Malastare to join the group who now called themselves Malastare's Pride. Some decades later, some of the older veterans faded into the background, and the younger ones stepped up into leadership positions. Their children continued their semi-nomadic lifestyle that their veteran parents had created. The sentients of Malastare knew that, though rough around the edges, if they needed assistance, they could always seek out Malastare's Pride and make their case. Famously, the group helped maintain order during the hectic events of the Year 20 semi-annual galactic swap meet. Many traders and tourists came to know these tough and just mercenaries from Malastare.

Operations Battalion

37th Scout Regiment

Often referred to as 'swampers' based on their various deployments to less than desirable terrain and by their ability to quietly infiltrate and overrun enemy outposts. Marked only by an unusual camouflage pattern on their helmets, the 37th prefer not to replace weathered armor and equipment over time, instead allowing the natural grime of their designated world to remould their appearance.

Having originally served in skirmishes in the Battle of Geonosis, the troupe were later assigned to the mires of Nimban to run long term reconnaissance. As dark operatives, communications were one way and after the fall of the Republic the 37th had no further standing orders. Reestablishing contact with fellow divisions many years later, the troupe look to train future generations of Clones.

9th Ranger Battalion

105th Expeditionary Force "Forgotten Sons"

The 105th during the war, was one of units that saw heavy integration with the much needed "Clone Troopers". With flash training, these clones were the best choice to replace experienced vehicle pilots in the field . Their birth born counterparts, saw levies coming from the then mysterious Hapan race. The ostracised men of the Hapes Cluster and the cylinder born clones found a commonality in their, as they put it, "Bastard" status. Fighting alongside them, would be a young Con Semper of Concord Dawn. Today they serve as the military backbone of the reconstituted Ternion Corps. Under the command of veterans like Semper, the division has shifted more towards an armored infantry division, utilizing lighter armor such as the AT-RT and Blaze Trooper Armor to supplement the short supply of combat effective TX-130 Saber-Class tanks.

62nd Airborne Legion

The 62nd are a specialized unit, trained for high altitude drops, and ariel combat utilizing jetpacks. Their black plastoid armor is designed to operate as low grade stealth tech, obscuring not only line of sight, but weak and distant sensor scans. The 62nd is grown from the original Clone Template used in the Grand Army of the Republic. However due to available cloning technology, the members of the unit are grown using inferior spaarti cylinders. While not as stable, their growth time is significantly lower. Clones within the unit undergo flash training designed for the Grand Army of the Republic, rendering them familiar with all republic weapons and tech of the time. Further training is conducted by Con Semper, to mirror their abilities with the ARC troopers of the Clone Wars special operations branch. While not nearly as independent, they have proven themselves superior to the rank and file.

6th Salvage Corp

The Grand Army of the Republic’s Salvage Corps served an important role. They would be deployed to warzones after the battles had ended to comb through the wreckage to search for survivors and salvage any weapons or components that were either able to be repaired or deemed too sensitive to fall into enemy hands. As time allowed, debris would be gathered and sent to scrap yards to be melted down and reused in new ships and vehicles. The transition to the Empire saw the retirement of most all equipment used in the Clone Wars and there was no longer a need to scour those debris fields. Little by little, the Imperial salvage operation became automated and the clone salvage teams were eventually disbanded. Members of the 6th turned their duty into a business, searching junkyards for ships and vehicles to restore and sell to collectors, planetary defense fleets, mercenary groups, and, eventually, rebel cells. They, their students, and children were natural allies in Ternion Corp’s mission to keep the legacy of the Grand Army alive by saving what was left of it from the junkheap and keeping as much of it up and running as possible.

Volunteer Auxiliary

Protectorate protocols officially restrict membership in the Reformed Grand Army to clone soldiers to ensure peak operational efficiency. Despite these prohibitions, GAR command is frequently flooded with volunteers. Colonel Luz has received special dispensation to organize reserve units of non-clone volunteers selected from those applications. Those selected are most often disaffected rebels and mercenaries sympathetic to the aims of the Ternion Corps. The Auxiliary is permitted to serve as reinforcements in limited capacities and to fill in ranks on smaller logistical ships or outposts.

41st Harvester Regiment

The 41st Harvester Regiment soldiers served as special scouts in the Grand Army of the Republic and were often deployed into situations that required operating on swamps or dense vegetation terrain while mantining stealth.

The 41st Harvesters Regiment was a combat engineer unit attached to the 105th Armored Division, with extraction and asset recovery as its specialty. It is known as the most decorated engineer regiment of the Ternion Corps, and it was often ranked as one of the best in all of the Grand Army of the Republic.

Easily recognized by the green markings on their armour, the 41st Harvesters Regiment played a crucial role in several major battles such as the Battle of Teth, the Battle of Coruscant and the Battle of Thule, where they were deployed into energy farms to take down their enemy's shields, leaving them vulnerable to attack.

After the war, as many troopers were deemed not fit for the army anymore, several members continued to employ their engineering abilities as a way to carry on with their lives, which led to the creation of several small mining and recycling companies as those services were on high demand at the time.

As time went by, several of those companies, realizing their shared past and common interests, decided to unite. As their founders once did, they grouped together under a single flag, a single goal and a single name: The 41st Harvesters Regiment.

9th Infantry Division

76th Harsh Environment Battalion

The 76th are a specialized unit, trained for harsh environment combat and recon utilizing specialized winter and heat gear to sustain the troopers during extended exposure to temperatures that would otherwise cause heat stroke or frostbite. The 76th were birthed from the original clone template but grown from spaarti cylinders alongside flash training however select clones of the 76th also receive further training from chiss commandos and are equipped with more updated combat gear to bring on a newer generation of clone commandos

Notable Members

Purchased Commissions

As enacted by the Republic Senate under military article 7-42b of the Grand Army of the Republic, in order to establish and reinforce the defenses of beleaguered Republic worlds, planetary defense forces through System Commanders were allowed to sell commissions within their command to affluent Republic citizens who wished to contribute to the war effort. Rank was thus awarded in direct relation to the funds necessary to raise, train, equip and maintain military units from junior grade officers at platoon level, to Majors commanding entire battalions. Subsequent articles such as 7-42c would allow smaller units such as squads to be raised under non-commissioned officers.

The Ternion Corps, acting within these established articles, allows for the commissioning of private citizens into the Grand Army of the Republic. The Following are recognized by Ternion Corps as rank holding members by virtue of Articles 7-42b/c. Officers and NCOs are placed under the Corps 9th Infantry division. This is in accordance with aforementioned articles, though is largely a formality and honorific as these "Officers" are under no obligation and or affiliation with the Ternion Corps.
