Base of operations

The Scarlet Bastion, Stratholme



The Crimson Legion was an elite sect of the Scarlet Crusade operating primarily within the deeper reaches of the Plaguelands. They were under the direct command of the Grand Crusader himself within the Scarlet Bastion.

A Crimson Defender.

Comprised of some of the more hardened veteran members of the Crusade loyal to the Grand Crusader, members of the Crimson Legion outside of Stratholme occupied positions as military commanders, religious leaders and provincial governors within Scarlet-held territory, and enforced the will and authority of the Grand Crusader.

Fall of Stratholme

With the Crusade's fall, the Grand Crusader eventually shed his mortal disguise, revealing himself as the dreadlord known as Balnazzar. He punished the crusaders for their failure, personally slaying his vanguard, and raising them as undead slaves.

Crimson Legionnaires in outlying Scarlet-controlled territories such as Hearthglen scattered to the wind when the Argent Crusade claimed many previously Scarlet Crusade-held lands. Many would integrate into smaller surviving Crusade branches such as the Scarlet Monastery. Crimson Legionnaires are a rarity in the Crusade today, with few members remaining and no authority surviving to appoint them.
