The Brilliant Wardens
The one and only Paladin order left in the world. It has survived for over five hundred years but has only fifty Paladins left in its ranks. These are some, if not the only Paladins left in all the lands. The remaining Paladins are having a hard time in this world controlled by evil. Many of the common folk believe the last Paladin died during the war following the Great Calamity five hundred years ago. No one but the Paladins, and their most trusted allies even know where their order is located. They often change locations if a darklord discovers their order and gets the idea to remove them once and for all, or if some of the more powerful demons become aware of their presence. They do not do this out of fear, but out of necessity. They cannot afford to thin their ranks any further. While some openly display their allegiance and hunt evil openly, some use more deceptive tactics to gather information on the evil that lurks among the innocent. No one is quite sure who their current leader is, or if they even have one. Usually, the paladins meet to discuss problems and if disagreements are had, they go their separate ways solving the problems as they see fit in smaller groups. There are rumors of Paladins trying to make allegiances with countries and domains or powerful lords with forces to their name.
