A cohort is a group of forty legionnaires who serve the Twelfth Legion. Each cohort is headed by two centurions. The Twelfth Legion Fulminata has five cohorts ranked from best to worst, reflecting the ancient Roman cohort structure in terms of quality. They are Camp Jupiter's equivalent of Camp Half Blood's cabins. The better the camper's letter, the better chance of him or her getting into the better cohorts.
Considered the second best, legionnaires who are in this cohort get almost as good of a reputation as the First. Larry is one of its centurions.
Considered the average cohort, campers with average letters are placed in this cohort. Hank is one of the cohort's centurions.
Between the average Third and the worst Fifth, the Fourth's mascot is a wolf. Leila is a centurion of this cohort.
The worst in the legion, campers with the worst or no letters of recommendation are put in this cohort. Members of this cohort are Dakota, Gwen, Percy, Frank, Hazel, Bobby, Michael Varus, Bryce Lawrence and Jason. Jason, Dakota, Gwen, Hazel and Frank are the cohort's known centurions. Even though it is considered the worst, the majority of known praetors have come from this cohort. It has also housed four of the seven demigods in the Second Great Prophecy.
