====Reachmen of Bthardamz====

At an unknown point during the early 4th Era, an Imperial Spymaster of the [[Lore:Blades|Blades]] known as Porcia Loran was in command of an Imperial Legion phalanx that were preparing to wipe out the [[Lore:Reachmen|Reachmen]] Doomfang clan at [[Lore:Bthardamz|Bthardamz]]. However, her past subordinate [[Lore:Talym Rend|Talym Rend]] was forced by [[Lore:Sheogorath|Sheogorath]] to ensure Porcia would go insane.{{ref|[[Legends:Episode 4 Intro (Isle of Madness)|Isle of Madness Episode 4]] intro dialogue}} Talym found a letter with a recipe for poison gas on it, which would be used by the Reachmen in the [[Lore:Dwemer Animunculi|Dwemer Animunculi]] against the Legion's forces, Talym refused to show Porcia this letter resulting in his companion Cyriel leaving him. Regardless of this, Porcia was captured by the Reachmen and found the letter herself, this led her to come to the conclusion that an antidote for the poison could be found at a Grove of [[Lore:Mara|Mara]], using the sacred flowers that grew there. However, the priestesses of Mara refused to let Porcia have the flowers, and so she personally assaulted the Grove for the sacred flowers so that her men could live.{{ref|[[Legends:Grove of Mara|Grove of Mara]] dialogue in Isle of Madness}}
 
The Legion's alchemists refined these flowers into a gas that was meant to negate the effects of the poison, with the plan being to wait for the Reachmen to release the poison and then deploy the antidote so that no poison would be left for the Reachmen to use. However, due to Talym's betrayal, this gas actually caused large explosions when it reacted with the poison, killing most of the Reachmen and the legionaries. Her mission whilst technically a victory, caused her to retire from the Legion due to the fear of uttering a command that could potentially hurt anyone.{{ref|[[Legends:The Betrayal (Isle of Madness)|The Betrayal]] dialogue in Isle of Madness}}

====Umbriel Crisis====
Following the Oblivion Crisis, the Imperial Legion steadily grew weaker. During the [[Lore:Umbriel Crisis|Umbriel Crisis]], an undead army advanced on the Imperial City in an effort to take control of the White-Gold Tower, causing mass panic among its citizens. The Imperial Legion attempted to hold the line along the [[Lore:Red Ring Road|Red Ring Road]], but were ultimately driven back to the walls of the city. The Synod and the College of Whispers worked together with the Legion to bring down the floating city, but also failed. In the end, Umbriel was banished by a group of heroes, but by that time the Legion already suffered heavy losses.{{ref|name=TIC}}{{ref|name=LOF|{{Cite Book|Lord of Souls}}}}
