The First Aleran was a [[legion]] formed from ''legionnaires'' brought together from every region in [[Realm of Alera|Alera]]. The goal was to create a unified force that would always act only in the interest of Alera, since no ''legionnaire'' within the group would willingly attack their homeland. Due to political infighting, though, many of the recruits of the First Aleran were subpar. Many [[Furies#Types of Furies#Wind|Knights Aeris]] were given, though they were very weak in their crafting and many of them could not fly. The group was also given a large number of fresh recruits, referred to as "fish". It's also assumed that every region sent spies as well.

The Knights Pisces are dubbed such when Tavi notes they're the "fish", or barely competent recruits, when compared to the knights of an established legion. Due to their daring acts during the defense of the Elinach, and after seeing the result of Tavi's plan to bring up sharks to deal with [[Canim]] swimming the river, they embrace the name.

==''Cursor's Fury''==
The First Aleran was created in Cursor's Fury. It was initially created mostly as a show. [[Tavi]] is assigned as a Third Subtribune Logistica, aiding in keeping up with the supplies needed and used within the group of ''legionnaires''. Due to a traitor, though, almost all of the field officers are killed in a surprise [[Canim]] lightning bolt attack. As the most senior remaining officer, Tavi is field promoted to Captain.

Information of a Canim invasion is discovered and Tavi moves the First Aleran to [[Elinarch]], hoping to hold the Canim there. The Canim appear in very large force - nearly 60,000 troops. Although outnumbered and severely lacking in combat experience, the First Aleran manages to hold and eventually repel the Canim assault force, using several non-traditional tactics and the Canim force making several tactical mistakes.
