The Legion of Dawn was a legendary group of heroes active 500 years before the present day.
The Legion of Dawn were the disciples of Helena Tarsis. Arden Vassa created a Javelin of Dawn for every member of the Legion. With this new technology at their disposal, the Legion fought back against urgoth oppressors, allowing mankind to live in peace. The Legion were the first javelin pilots, and many say the greatest.
The Legion's ranks included notable heroes like Sanadeen, Liatrelle, and Magna Stral. Their tragedies and triumphs were recorded by Garred the Chronicler in Bastion's most famous book, The Volume Of Tarsis, though the text was printed long after Garred's death.
By the Legion's skill and courage, human civilization was able to develop. Their protection allowed for the construction of fortified settlements safe from the corruption and danger of the outside world.
- Arden Vassa (Inventor of the Javelins)
- Garred the Chronicler (Tarsis' husband)
- Liatrelle the Unbroken (Tarsis' oldest and most trusted friend)
