Star Wars: Dawn of Darkness
The legion was created in the third year of the Clone Wars following the appointment of Jan Hontor, the Aunapian CEO of Hontor Galactic Industries to the position of Sector Governor. Governor Hontor desired to showcase both her dedication to defense of the Republic and her ability to accomplish impressive feats on a large scale.
Due to the legions creation for political reasons and not the needs of the Grand Army of the Republic, the legion saw no action before the end of the Clone Wars and the rise of the Galactic Empire.
The legions first major exercise occurred more than a year after the Clone Wars conclusion, when the legion was used to occupy the planet Manaan following a series of riots that had disrupted the peace on the planet.
Encounters with the Player Party
The player party first encountered the 416th Legion when it was deployed on Manaan in the midst of their conflict with Negas and his Hutt backers on behalf of their employer the Tarisian over claims to the planets kolto supploy.
