Attn: Chapter Master and Lord Admiral Gaven Lok’ri
I have the honor to be your obedient servant and report that the Legio III Amarr has made planet-fall as of 09:00 today. We are in communication with the local authorities, our HQ is established, and our Griffin standard is online and broadcasting.
The 1st Jad-Gheinok Volunteers and the 1st and 2nd Lok’ri Regulars are currently advancing to relieve the Legio XII Zakara, which has been in constant contact with hostile forces for the last 12 hours. They report few casualties and have made steady progress towards the objectives given to the Excubitoris chapter. They have, however, reported multiple encounters with groups of armed hostiles, some of which required the use of limited fire support to eliminate without Excubitoris casualties. It is unclear, as of yet, where the slaves acquired the weaponry.
As we discussed before the deployment, any unarmed threats have, whenever possible, been subdued rather than eliminated, though the clear effects of the chemical agent affecting them has made this difficult and there have been multiple instances of lethal force being required to deal with mob attacks.
At this point, the 1st Dresi Guard has taken a defensive stance around several large groups of rioters that were kettled by the Legio XIIs advance. Given the sophisticated education that many of the slaves in this region possess, we are hoping that they can be subdued relatively peacefully once the chemical agent wears off or is countered. The Guard has set up a cordon and are broadcasting religious messages and messages informing the rioters that they will be allowed to peacefully surrender. I have assigned the 4th Amarr-Prime Infantry to supporting the defensive cordons around these pockets while the 2nd Jad-Gheinok Volunteers are assigned to establish support infrastructure for housing and treating any subdued or surrendered victims of the terrorist attack. I will continue to keep you updated as the situation develops.
I remain your servant and cousin,
Legate Miriam Lok’ri, Legio III Amarr
