The term “mercenary” was once used as a slur among fighting men. In certain nations, notably Khador, the CIS and the Mandalorians, the term is still used as a disdainful appellation for those who have no attachment to their homeland. Nevertheless, where war and wages thrive mercenaries inevitably follow; with the occupation of Llael, mercenary bands have cropped up all over the kingdoms. Mercenaries are so common in the Iron Kingdoms that some speculate it was mercenaries who helped bring them about and ultimately are hindering their solidarity. After all a mercenary’s wage comes from war, and conflicts keep mercenaries in business. Today, the Iron Kingdoms (Now called Modern Kingdoms after they all replaced with modern and futuristic technology in the first multiverse war) Mercenaries is a independent faction.
