Confederacy Defense Forces

The Confederacy Defense Forces or Separatist military is comprised primarily of droid forces from across a variety of corporate members in the Confederacy. The Confederacy lacks the centralized elements of the Grand Army of the Republic but makes up for it in sheer numbers due to the near limitless number of droids. The Confederacy also contains a number of planetary, sentient (non-droid) units which fight across the galaxy for the confederate cause. Officially General Grevious is the Supreme Commander of the Droid Armies and holds ultimate command authority over the "unified" droid armies.

OOC Note: Please note that SW:G is not a game of numbers, this is here to provide an overview for writers to gain an idea of relative strengths and ideas.

Writers interested in the Confederacy can belong to a number of different sub-factions within the CIS.
Writers interested in playing a sentient member, can use one of the various sentient units within the CIS. Please note that these units and formations are few and far between, they are rare and should used as a sort of "special forces" compared to droid units.
  • Morgukai Shadow Army - Despite the Siege of Saleucami, some Nikto continued to serve the Confederacy within the Morgukai secret society and were deadly Jedi hunters. Morgukai were known to mirror the Jedi in some respects. They were notably equipped with Cortosis staves.
  • Neimoidian Gunnery Battalion - Used exclusively as guards for high-ranking Neimoidian officials (and the Trade Federation) some units of the Neimoidian Gunnery Battalion were deployed for their skills related to protection of important sites and VIPs.
  • Nimbus Commandos - Based out of their homeworld of Jabiim, the Nimbus Commandos are feared and elite mercenaries (and defenders of Jabiim) that aligned with the Confederacy and continue to operate as a special forces unit for the CIS.
  • Koorivar Fusiliers - The Koorivar Fusiliers were experts in siege warfare, maintained their own distinct order of battle and were known for being advisors and present during important sieges of neutral or Galactic Republic worlds.
  • Neimoidian Home Defense Legion - Based primarily on the Neimoidian worlds, the NHDL was known to operate where notable Neimoidian commanders or officials were present as a sort of "home guard".
  • Umbaran Militia - The planetary defense force of Umbara provided a number of highly skilled, sentinent units to the Confederacy. The Umbaran's have proved to be a formidable force bolstering the Confederacy's strength.
  • Iotran Guard - Serving as the protectors and enforcers of the InterGalactic Banking Clan, the Iotran Guard was located primarily on Muunilist but was seen elsewhere on the fields of battle of the Clone Wars.
  • Gossam Commandos - Elite, special forces body guards of the Commerce Guild and skilled combatants on the field of battle.

Dark Acolytes

The Dark Acolytes formed as a group of Fallen and Dark Jedi around the former Jedi Master and secret apprentice to Darth Sidious, Darth Tyranus also known as Count Dooku. When Count Dooku was killed aboard the Invisible Hand in 19 BBY the leadership of the Dark Acolytes floundered and no one assumed the role of leadership within the Dark Acolytes; a number of the former leaders of the Dark Acolytes were killed in a series of fierce battles that came following the revelation that Supreme Chancellor Palpatine was the Dark Lord of the Sith.

The Dark Acolytes possess no known coherent ideology or purpose aside from the destruction of the New Republic (formerly the Galactic Republic) and combat with the Jedi Order; many of them being former and fallen Jedi. The Dark Acolytes primary training facility is on Jabiim.
