1. Introduction
2: Installation
3. Version History


As egalitarian as the Legion is made out to be... there is a conspicuous lack of women in the Legion rank and file, unlike the Stormcloaks. You see a grand total of three women active in the Legion (Legate Rikke, the archer that shoots Lokir in the beginning, and the crazy legion officer at Helgen who's all Red Queen at you).

So where da wimmen at?

This mod inserts some women NPC face templates into the ranks. It uses the FemaleNord (the heavily accented one, like Danica Pure-Spring, the priestess in the Whiterun Kynareth temple), the only voice type that seems to have Legion-specific dialog.

This also has the effect of introducing women into the ranks of the pro-Imperial towns' initial town guard (the two use the same leveled list that governs faces).

This also has a secondary feature of introducing some elven males into the Legion trooper ranks as well.

Lastly, this gives all Legionnaires some actual shields.


Unpack the ESP module "Legionettes.esp" into your Data folder. Activate using your mod manager of choice.

It may take quite a while before you see any in the ranks, as your game needs to reset cells. If you're feeling bold, you could activate the included "RespawnCell24Hour.esp" module to hasten things, and then deactivate it once you see women amongst the Imperial/Townguard ranks. It's recommended to wait inside an isolated area like one of your homes as well.

I take no respnsibility for any screwups that using the respawn mod may cause (I personally think it made me lose my alchemy reagent stash on top of the Breezehome alchemy station). I also reiterate that you should probably deactivate it ASAP once you get the women into the Imperial ranks.

This mod will hopefully be the basis for a more expansive mod that will add some variety to the Legion ranks; Legion Decani/Centurions, Stormcloak Sergeants/Captains, Legion Battlemages, Stormcloak Bereskarns.


Initial Release.

v1.0.1 (Feb 25, 2012):
Packed in head NIFs that I forgot to pack in. Re-situated how the Legionnaires get their shields so that the pro-imperial town guard shields don't get displaced in the process. Noted feature I forgot to mention (male elf legion troopers).

v1.0.2 (April 22, 2012):
Fixed the missing voice files for the Trooper legionettes. Guard legionettes unaffected. Packed in missing baked face textures as well.

v1.0.3 (March 30, 2014)
Fixes Riverwood guard-redeploy scene with Irileth (might be stuck in existing games). All are now hardwired to only be male since there doesn't seem to be any dialog for females, and the scene gets stuck because of it.
