Laurels of Command
The Laurels of Command is a relic of the Imperial Guard. The Laurels of Command are a callous and controversial means to ensure obedience. Concealed within their peerless artistry is a band of empathic-impulsion circuitry which allows the wearer limited control over the minds of indoctrinated individuals via subliminal suggestion. Under their effects even cowards fight to the last, while orders are executed in perfect synchronisation. However, if the officer wearing the Laurels is slain, the echoes of his death can leave his subordinates reeling in confusion.
