The Death Legions were an independent military branch that operated alongside the Imperial Army and Navy of the Dark Empire. Though they functioned under their own command structure, Imperial Legionnaires ultimately answered directly to Dark Lord Elknor, the architect of the New Order that incorporated most of Nora under Imperial rule. Regarded as elite shock troopers of the Empire, the Legions also functioned as Elknor's chief enforcers—both within the military ranks and the Noran populace alike—due to their uncompromising loyalty to Elknor.

The first Legionnaires were Fainish knights that the Empire inherited. However, the Death Legions gradually expanded its ranks to include soldiers from different geographical sources. Further changes in policy led to the recruitment of Humans only as enlisted Legionnaires.

With few exceptions, the Legions were predominantly Human throughout the existence of the Dark Empire. In the last years of the war, the Death Legions were trained to fight with "infiltration tactics", part of the Empire's new method of attack on enemy strongholds.
