Major Jean Léon

Jean Léon enlisted into the Oleon military at the age of 18, he first worked on repairing ships for the navy. He then joined the Army and served for years. He is a well experienced soldier and has made it through the ranks and is now a Colonel. He fights right alongside his men in combat. IMG_5969.jpg

@Sultan Welcome to Brethren of the Brick Seas. I like the shortened musket. This shows me that Jean Léon is a man with ideas.

Especially as a newcomer it is worth taking part in competitions, that take place here regularly. Very often there are freebuild licenses to win.

You can still change your character's story at this point. Unfortunately, you also have to change your military rank to Major.

Ranking System

 

If you create your sigfig you are - of course - free to give it any rank you wish. So if you want - for example - a Captain to sail your ship through the waters of New Terra - create a Captain. If you want a Major fighting off Oleon's enemies on the fields of battle - create a Major. However, we would ask you not to start out too high up in rank right away. There are certain official ranks that can be earned, and they bring in-game benefits and lots of prestige - not to mention the awe of your foes.

So fight for your own and Oleon's glory and rise through the ranks - do you have what it takes?

Army Ranks:

  • Maréchal (Marshal)
  • Général d'Armée (Army General)
  • Général de Division (Division General)
  • Général de Régiment (Regiment General)
  • Colonel (Colonel)
  • Lieutenant Colonel (Lieutenant Colonel)

Naval Ranks:

  • Grand-Amiral d'Oleon (Grand Admiral of Oleon)
  • Amiral (Admiral)
  • Vice-Amiral (Vice Admiral)
  • Contre-Amiral (Rear Admiral)
  • Chef d'Escadre (Commodore)
  • Capitaine de Vaisseau (Ship-of-the-Line Captain)

Rank Requirements and Benefits:

Promotions can be earned through military contributions, means through repeated and active participation in war campaigns, fleet actions, through acts of bravery, and - as a base requirement - you need to loyally follow orders.

For promotions to High Command - Général de Régiment respectively Contre-Amiral and higher - a noble title of at least Marquis is required - to make sure only the best of the best command Oleon's finest.

'But where's the beef?' - you may ask. Well, excelling in military actions is a profound way to boost your social standing in Oleon. It will lead to some shiny medals and ribbons, can contribute to your house's growing reputation, and might eventually get you His Majesty's attention - which can open doors you didn't even believe existed. And - who knows - maybe one day you'll end up commanding the unit you were once fighting alongside with - or determine the fate of a whole royal fleet in the vast waters of New Terra.

Signing up as Alexandre Duval, a newly commissioned Leuitenant of La Royale Navy from the Île de Tyche!

Here is his intro build, where you can find more about his backstory >

52527920480_63a80013dc_k.jpg

Alexandre Duval sits upon the rocky coast of Île de Tyche, watching ships as they glide through the crystal clear waters of the bay. A newly commissioned Leuitenant in La Royale Navy of Olean, Alexandre is a bright-eyed young lad whose father works as a stonemason for the Royal Governor of de Tyche.

 

He was the first of his family to gain commission in the Navy, which was unusual for the time as most officers were typically of noble background; Alexandre was not. He was fortunate however in that his father Guillaume Duval went way back with the Governor, as they had fought in the 49 Years War together.

 

The Governor's patronage started Alexandre as a midshipman under the command of legendary sea captain Simon Pascal, and his exemplary skills in navigation and military science propelled him up through the ranks before he was finally given his first command of La Souris, a 6-gun sloop. While not a large vessel, Duval is excited as to the adventures and potential tales of glory he will embark upon. He has yet to set eyes on his ship, but once his leave is over he will make the short journey from his hometown to th port at Fatu Hiva, where he will finally recieve his transport and await orders!
