What's the legion of silence?
After the attempted assassination of the Empress by partisans of House Iselsi, a cabal of Sesus and Cynis nobles assembled a slave legion dedicated to guarding the Imperial Manse. The Legion of Silence is made up of eunuch slaves who have had their tongues cut out at birth. The removal of their testicles, plus a few Charms designed by the legion's Dragon-Blooded masters, leaves these slaves with prodigious muscle mass â€” their gigantic stature and emotionless faces make most assassins or thieves think twice before entering the Imperial Manse.
Trained since their youth in the use of polearms and shields, the Legion of Silence is quite capable of defending the Dynasty should their intimidating forms prove insufficient to dissuade potential attackers.
The Legion of Silence also accompanies high-ranking Dynasts when they travel abroad. The sight of this intimidating personal guard makes peasant girls cry and rebellious tributaries rethink their insurrections.

Also, how demolished is "totally demolished"? I don't imagine that all 100 bandits would keep attacking after the first fifty are messily slaughtered while the single opponent never gets more than bruised.
This is addressed.
