Pledged is the term I use for an entity who has pledged himself/herself to a Demon Lord’s or King and Queen’s legion but is non-military. Just because one is in a legion does not mean they are necessarily involved in combat. They pledged to remain loyal to their respective Demon Lord or monarch, and complete tasks given to them. Although they are non-military they still have duties to attend to, set forth by their commander. The pledged are individuals who have proven themselves in some manner to someone with power or connections. They are chosen for possessing above average skill or completing impressive feats, which is what separates them from the unpledged.
