The Dark Legion began in 2002, when a group of friends discovered Halo: Combat Evolved.
Originally dubbed the Horseman's Guild, the group consisted of six founding members: Death (a.k.a. The Halo Ninja/Ski), Sladebane (a.k.a. Butters), PESTileNCE (a.k.a. SIPPI), Holywarz (a.k.a. War), Elusive Lurker (a.k.a. Target / Kill PEST with shotgun), and AnimuX.
The six members forged lifetime bonds through their shared experiences and hardships in the Army while stationed at Fort Hood, Texas. Eventually, the group grew to well over 15 gamers who enjoyed weekly LAN sessions in the cramped confines of the barracks at Ft. Hood. The Horsemen even began to make connections with similar Halo clans, accepting challenges and participating in gaming throughout Ft. Hood.
In December of 2004, the Horsemen joined with the millions of gamers who entered into the online realm of Xbox Live and Halo 2. Real world issues, including deployments in Iraq and life after the Army, had separated the original members, but they continued to stay in contact.
Only three of the original six would make an appearance in the Legion's next guise: Holywarz (who had begun gaming with DA during Halo CE), Sladebane (who was soon deployed after Halo 2's release), and PESTileNCE (who had just recently returned from deployment). The Horsemen banded with another clan during this time named the Dragon Army, and had three enjoyable months gaming with them on Xbox Live.
Eventually, Holywarz, PESTileNCE, and others decided to start a new clan from the ashes of DA, which had splintered, and The Dark Legion sprang onto the scene in February of 2005.
Since its inception The Dark Legion has always valued good sportsmanship, integrity, and fun. We continue to endorse these traits that form the foundation of this gaming community. We continue to evolve, and strive to provide a vibrant, thriving community for all gamers.
