A company of Legion soldiers were traveling to the Imperial City during the Crisis in order to protect it from the Daedra, however, an Oblivion Gate opened in the middle of them, killing half of them. The Imperial Captain, Tertius Ione managed to save the rest and temporarily retreated, he then mustered together local farmers and hunters from the surrounding areas and from [[Lore:Pell's Gate|Pell's Gate]]. Ione returned with his remaining legionaries and freshly recruited auxiliary forces and slaughtered the Daedra, he then entered the Gate with about 52 men, whilst the other half guarded the gate. Due to Ione's sacrifice, a [[Lore:Bosmer|Bosmer]] named Fenton was successful in closing the Gate. The remaining Legion soldiers settled the area and named the settlement [[Lore:Ione|Ione]] in the Legion Captain's honour.{{ref|{{Cite Book|The Infernal City}}|Part Two Chapter Three}}
