The Blue Rose Cycle
The Order Custodis
The Order is an elite para-military organization based in Nexus with its origins shrouded in history. Today, its members act as elite mercenaries and treasure-hunters, fighting monsters and dealing with threats that the Imperial army is unable to deal with. Members of the Order are renowned for their prowess in battle and use of extraordinary weapons that only the most well equipped regular soldier might dream of using. The service of the Order comes at a price, however, as a significant fee is required of potential employers. The Order also claims exclusive rights to any and all magical items and technology it might encounter. Despite the costs, the central government and local officials, as well as powerful merchants, frequently employ the use of the Order in dealing with monsters and ancient ruins of the First Age.
