Background

Vaarso Battlespeak Notation: Ectros is the name given in Tohaa language to "e Number". The e mathematical constant (e ≈ 2,718...) is Calculus's number par excellence as well as one of the most important numbers in mathematics. In Neebab Numerology, number e refers to absolute success in actions of great magnitude and importance.

The Ectros Regiment was the first Tohaa Heavy Infantry unit adapted to the concepts of the New Model Army, absorbing the tactical lessons learned in the initial clashes against the relentless Fenrig. In this way, the Ectros Regiment became the main spearhead of Tohaa forces in the second phase of the War against the Fenrig Imperative, developing a crucial role in the victory against the expansionist enemy.

Being the first heavy infantry regiment to enter active service, the Ectros unit participated in all conflicts in most of the Tohaa’s recent history. Today, the Ectros are by far the most popular heavy infantry unit — in no small part due to the mass broadcasts of the deeds of a humble regimental officer, Neema Saatar, an orphan from the lost world of Agreda. Neema was the last person to be evacuated from her world as the enemy was overrunning the capital’s defences. There is no Tohaa who has not seen the infant Neema thrown into the hands of a crew member by her desperate father, only to be gunned down seconds later as the shuttle was taking off. Neema was given a comprehensive state-sponsored education, and she eventually joined the Trident to settle her accounts with the EI. She quickly became an idol and a rolemodel, presented in civil society classes to other Tohaa. She quickly rose through ranks, and although some say that it is because of her background, there is no one who would argue her merits or the lack thereof to her face.

Within the Trident forces, the Ectros very often act as a backbone, a structural axis around which the other Tohaa forces congregate. Ectros are very often leaders of their combat Triads, using their vast experience and knowledge of warfare to make sure that the superior firepower they carry is always where it needs to be in a given moment.

This unit is the most famous and appears in the most media across the Sphere and Tohaa space. They are all well-liked and claiming to be a member of an Ectros unit grants great respect. Only the Rasail rival their fame and reverence. Ectros are natural leaders.

Ectros frequently make rude and obscene gestures.

The Ectros Regiment can boast an excellent combat record, with a length few line units in this arm of the galaxy can equal, as it has participated in all conflicts that its race has suffered through in recent history. The Regiment is the oldest Heavy Infantry unit still active in the Tohaa Trident, acting as the structural axis of the Infantry corps and the core of the heavy assault forces. The Ectros are known as the "foundations of the attack divisions", and when talking about their exploits it is always acknowledged that they continually fight in the hot spots of greatest responsibility. The Regiment was the architect of the most awesome victories in the Tohaa Wars against the Fenrig Imperative, and is a veteran unit in the constant conflict against the EI. There is no planet or colony that does not have a commemorative plaque dedicated to this unit, acknowledging its sacrifices. Its members are proud of their their exceptional talent for achieving victory as well as their capacity for survival, openly self-proclaimed as ‘hard-to-kill bastards’. The Ectros are gifted with not only a finely honed tactical instinct but also the personality of the Holdaan hornbeast, king predator of planet Runohaa, from which they have adopted its characteristic horns and poison. On any battlefront where an impressive resistance has been conducted, and in any battle where victory has been stolen from EI's claws, there will be an Ectros Regiment survivor, shamelessly grinning while directing obscene gestures towards the dying enemy.

Quotes

“Have you ever seen a Holdaan Hornbeast in the wild? Nasty things. They’re either trying to mate with you, gore you, poison you, or defecate on you. Probably all at once. I think they suit the Ectros perfectly. It lets you know what to expect from them.”
