Until 1070 AE, the army fought in the Guild Wars against the other human kingdoms of Tyria: Kryta and Orr. But lately (especially since the Searing) the Charr have taken over as the main enemy of Ascalon.
Both women and men are accepted as recruits into the army. Anyone who is skilled at using a weapon to defend Ascalon against the Charr is welcome.
The Army has the following known divisions:
- The Ascalon Guard (also known as "the King's Army"), a defensive guard under order of King Adelbern, which wears red armor.
- The Ascalon Vanguard, a smaller, more offensive elite force under order of Prince Rurik, which wears dark brown/gray armor.
- The Ebon Vanguard, an offensive guard under order of King Adelbern, which wears black armor and operate behind enemy lines. They are led by Captain Langmar, and count Gwen among their ranks.
The following officers command the Ascalon Army:
