Unit Profile (as of 3145)
Parent Formation Hastati Sentinels
Formed 3137[1]


The XII Hastati Sentinels (or Twelfth Hastati Sentinels) were formed in 3137 to calm the people of Northwind. The First Kearny Highlanders were absorbed into the Republic Armed Forces, and the Northwinders were unhappy with the loss of their traditional garrison unit. To allay their fears, the Republic High Command commissioned the Twelfth. Most of the soldiers of the Twelfth had historical ties to the Northwind Highlanders regiments, and officers from the Twelfth frequently served as instructors at the Northwind Military Academy. Another sign of respect was the fact that the Twelfth used the old IX Hastati Sentinels insignia of a winged and kilted bear as their insignia.[1]

The Twelfth was stationed on Northwind in 3145.[2]
