The Black Legion is a team appearing in the Unreal Tournament series.

Team overview[]

They are a team of Necris competing in the Grand Tournament.

In the original Unreal Tournament continuity the Necris are a mysterious alien race. The Black Legion team is fully comprised of these alien warriors, several of whom which are drawn from a secret society known as the Phayder, which is described as being comprised of cultists and assassins.

In the revised continuity introduced with Unreal Championship 2 and Unreal Tournament 3, the Necris are humans who have been reanimated using a nanotechnological substance called "nanoblack" by the Phayder Corporation. Highly boosted with inorganic elements, the Necris warriors are able to use nanotechnology like tentacles and vehicles, which can even drain off the energy from their targets
